Houston 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers Represent Clients and their Families throughout the United States

Accidents involving 18-wheelers typically leave victims suffering severe injuries that affect their lives in ways that they could not have previously imagined — medical bills they can’t afford. Job duties can no longer perform. Pain and suffering don’t go away. These consequences scratch the surface of what life is often like for individuals who suffer catastrophic truck accident injuries.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured during a truck accident, an 18-wheeler accident lawyer is here to help. With decades of combined legal experience, Morrow & Sheppard has successfully handled matters involving more than $1 billion. We know what it takes to hold trucking companies accountable, and we have the skills, resources, and determination to make sure you recover the compensation you deserve. Securing just compensation requires a prompt investigation and the ability to avoid mistakes that could jeopardize your rights. To make sure you have the best chance to secure maximum compensation, contact us online for a free consultation today, or call us now at (800) 489-2216.

Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

The purpose of investigating is to determine the cause of the accident. Why did the 18-wheeler lose control? Was the driver drunk or distracted? Was he or she asleep behind the wheel? These are just a few of the most common reasons for these accidents.

Who Is Liable for Injuries Sustained in a Serious Truck Accident?

Once we determine the cause of the accident, then we can identify the party (or parties) that are responsible. In most cases, the trucking company will be to blame, but there are several other parties that could be financially liable as well. A Houston 18-wheeler accident lawyer at Morrow & Sheppard will seek to identify all of the responsible parties so that we can improve your chances of securing maximum compensation as quickly as possible.

Important Steps After an 18-Wheeler Accident

While an attorney must investigate the accident, there are several key steps that victims can (and should) take personally in the aftermath of a collision involving an 18-wheeler. As soon as possible after the accident, you should:

  • Record Key Information – If you are physically able, take photos with your phone at the scene of the accident. If not, try to write down everything you remember once you have received medical treatment. License plate numbers, business names, and logos on the side of the truck, the details of the crash site, weather conditions, and the damage to each vehicle involved are all key pieces of information you will want to provide to your attorney.
  • Seek Medical Attention – Even if you feel well enough to take photos, seeking medical attention should still be your top priority once you leave the crash site. This will help ensure that any internal injuries do not go untreated and create a record linking your injuries to the collision.
  • Talk to an Attorney – Again, launching a prompt investigation is critical, and this requires that you speak with an experienced truck accident attorney. You will also want to have your lawyer deal with the insurance companies so that you can preserve your claim for maximum compensation.

I worked with Nick Morrow, John Sheppard, Daniel Sheppard, Patrick McGinnis, and Chris West on my maritime injury case. These guys were incredible. I... was injured badly working on a tugboat, and was forced to leave my career. These lawyers assured me I had a right to recover damages under the Jones Act, even when several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard went above and beyond. They took on costs like hiring expensive experts and taking depositions so that I could be in the best position to prove my case. I watched them handle every excuse the defense lawyers threw at me, and ultimately forced the defendant’s hand in to paying me what I deserved. Morrow & Sheppard always kept me informed and up to date on my case, and developed a personal relationship with me. I would give them the highest recommendation. I still keep in touch with them, and look forward to seeing them whenever I pass through Houston.read more

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired... expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & Sheppard.read more

John Sheppard and Nick Morrow were two of the brightest stars in my law school class and my class of lawyers at Fulbright & Jaworski, one of the most... elite and prestigious law firms in Houston and Texas. I have known both of them for well over a decade now and throughout that time they have both always lived up to the highest standards of intellect, tenacity, and professionalism. They are both winners. If you need a Houston lawyer who will stand up for your rights and get you the justice you deserve, I wholeheartedly recommend Morrow & Sheppard. read more

My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances... of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed counsel.read more
