Big Rig Accidents

Big rigs are dangerous. They are big, heavy and hard to stop. They are complicated to drive, they have limited visibility and they can easily malfunction. When something goes wrong, big rig drivers can – and do – lose control.

In big rig accidents, the data show that the majority of victims are drivers and passengers of other vehicles. Many of these victims suffer catastrophic, life-changing injuries, and thousands of people die in big rig accidents every year. The consequences can be devastating, and the victims and families who have the best chance of recovering are the ones who stand up for their right to just compensation.

Are You Entitled to Compensation?

With the complexity of big rigs, accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Almost anything that goes wrong has the potential to cause an accident, and the list of possible causes goes on and on. Truck manufacturers, trucking companies and other companies in the trucking industry know the risks involved – and when their trucks, cargo and truck drivers cause accidents, they deserve to be held financially accountable.

Some of the most common causes of big rig accidents in Texas include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • Fatigued driving and falling asleep behind the wheel
  • Negligent truck maintenance and cargo loading
  • Safety violations
  • Speeding
  • Sudden braking
  • Texting while driving (distracted driving)
  • Truck defects

How do you know if you are entitled to compensation? Determining the cause of a big rig accident is challenging, and it requires a prompt investigation by attorneys and skilled professionals who know what to look for at the scene of the collision. At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we work with highly-experienced investigators and accident reconstructionists; and, using physical evidence and information gathered at the scene, we piece together the events leading up to our clients’ and their loved ones’ injuries. When the evidence reveals that someone else is to blame for a client’s losses, we fight aggressively to secure maximum compensation as quickly as possible.
