Houston Semi Truck Accident Lawyer
There is no such thing as a minor accident when it comes to commercial truck accidents. If you have been struck by a semi truck, 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, you have likely sustained a severe and life-altering injury.
Filing a Civil Lawsuit Against Semi Truck Drivers
If you choose to file a civil lawsuit against a semi truck driver, he or she will likely be represented by an attorney assigned by their insurance provider. Insurance companies have access to experienced attorneys whose sole objective it is to limit the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries. These attorneys are tough and they are not likely to offer a reasonable settlement unless they know that you mean business.
First and foremost, you need an attorney with a reputation for success at trial. It is the fear of a large jury award that will motivate the insurance company to offer a fair settlement to you. Our firm has established a reputation for hard-nosed advocacy. Insurance companies in our area know that we are fully willing and capable of taking a case to trial and have done so on many occasions when they have been unwilling to make a reasonable settlement offer.
Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries and Wrongful Death
Since many accidents involving semis and 18-wheelers result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, attorneys handling commercial truck accident cases must have a firm understanding of the types of compensation allowable in cases involving severe and fatal injuries.
People who retain our firm can be confident that they will be served by an experienced attorney who understands their case. Collectively our attorneys have nearly a century of combined experience. The founder of our firm, attorney T. Ernest Freeman, has more than 20 years of courtroom experience and is Board Certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
