San Antonio Semi-Truck Accident Attorney
Texas 18-Wheeler Injury Lawyer
Accidents involving trucks in interstate commerce result in thousands of injuries and fatalities per year in the United States. Unfortunately, Texas has one of the highest annual rates of injury and fatality in the nation.
At Rush & Gransee, L.C., of San Antonio, Texas, based on our extensive experience in representing plaintiffs in truck accident cases, we know how to effectively pursue legal action against both the truck driver and the trucking insurance company. Potential causes of action against a trucking company and its driver may include negligence per se, negligent entrustment, negligent training, negligent maintenance, and possibly other common negligence theories in motor vehicle accidents such as failure to maintain a safe distance and speeding.

Truck accidents, semi-truck accidents and collisions involving tractor-trailers or big rigs entail a complicated set of laws and large amounts of evidence. The trucking industry is heavily regulated; therefore, accidents involving trucks are generally significantly more complex than typical automobile accidents. Not only are lawsuits complex, but injuries are often devastating, including paralysis, brain injuries, severe burns and death. State and federal laws are in place, designed to keep safe the public roadways, and the drivers who are on them.
When we are retained in an auto accident with serious injuries caused by a truck or 18-wheeler we hire specialists in accident reconstruction and get them out to the scene as soon as possible. The accident reconstructionist can very often determine how and why the accident happened. The accident reconstructionist can often determine right down to the seconds how much time the trucker had to react to some emergency or hazard. Often truck accidents are caused by driver fatigue as the drivers are on the road too long without rest. This requires that the drivers logs be inspected to determine how long the driver had been on the road.
If you are the victim of a truck accident, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, property damage and car repairs, lost wages, pain and suffering and permanent injury or disfigurement. We have the experience and detailed knowledge of the law to lead the investigation into the cause of a truck accident and to help you collect the maximum amount allowed under the law.
