Truck Accident Lawyer
Trucks are particularly dangerous to drivers of cars and other small vehicles because of the sheer size, height, and weight of an 18-wheeler. This puts you at risk for serious damage when accidents occur. With catastrophic damage often come major medical bills that can quickly overwhelm you.
The trucking company’s insurance provider may be quick to offer you a settlement for the case, but their offer is likely much less than you deserve. To protect your rights, you need a truck accident lawyer form Nguyen & Chen. We specialize in truck accidents and will protect your interests.
Our Truck Accident Lawyers Will Fight For You
In Houston, a major hub of trucking activity into the Port of Houston, big rigs are common on the road. While most drivers of these large trucks are courteous, competent, and well-trained, they are often paid by the mile and are under pressure to keep driving for more time and at higher speeds than federal safety standards dictate. They may also be pressured to carry bigger-than-claimed loads and to cut corners to stay on schedule.
As a result, large trucks cause a disproportionate number of fatal accidents nationwide, including:
- Rollover accidents
- Jackknife accidents
- Rear-end accidents
- Underride accidents
- Runaway truck accidents
- Blind spot or no zone sideswipe accidents
- Multi-vehicle accidents
To determine the cause of these collisions, experts examine logbooks, shipping records, black boxes that electronically record data, and training records as well as the tractor-trailer and the accident scene. This analysis can help the attorneys at Nguyen & Chen determine the facts of the case.
