In-Depth Knowledge of Texas Accident Laws
For truck accidents in particular, truck operators are subject to a set of laws meant to protect motorists on the road. When these laws are violated, accidents and injury occur. Our personal injury firm is well-versed in the laws governing commercial truck operations and can demonstrate your options to you so you can know how to proceed.
You may be able to seek compensation for an accident involving a commercial truck if:
- The driver was driving while intoxicated
- The driver was distracted - for example, on a cell phone - while driving the truck
- The driver failed to obey operational hours restrictions, driving beyond the legal limit
- The company did not maintain the truck to appropriate safety standards
- The driver neglected to stop at a safety or weight check station on the highway
How much time do I have to file a claim after an auto accident?
