Texas trucking laws, rules, and regulations differ from those applying to car drivers. For example, there are limits on the number of hours a truck driver can be on the road. That is one of the reasons you need an attorney who is not only experienced in personal injury, but in handling trucking accidents as well.

Texas trucking accident experience is important because there are many factors that must be understood in order to pursue full recovery, including the following:
- Causes of Trucking Accidents - it is important to understand how the accident happened, who was responsible, and to establish liability or fault
- Trucking Accident Liability - this focuses on the parties who are potentially liable for the accident because the failure to include a partially responsible party in your lawsuit could affect your ability to receive full compensation for your injuries or loss
- Trucking Laws, Rules, and Regulations - because they differ from the rules of the road governing cars, it is important to know if any of the parties involved in a trucking accident were not in compliance with the trucking laws, rules, and regulations, including those governing loads, driving, inspections, etc.
I am pleased to announce that I just settled a lawsuit and recovered a sizeable six figure recovery for this wonderful client. She was side swiped by an 18 wheeler changing lanes on I-35 last year and although the property damage to her vehicle appeared relatively minor, a doctor testified that she would need surgery. The case settled just before trial here. My client was extremely happy with the results.
