Texas Trucking Accident Attorneys

In order to meet the stringent expectations of their employers, truck drivers often implement negligent driving techniques to maximize their mileage and increase profits. As a result, innocent car and motorcycle drivers are involved in serious trucking accidents which cause personal injury or death. At Chaiken & Chaiken, P.C., we pursue compensation and justice on behalf of injured clients and families of fatal truck accident victims.

We work to investigate and reveal all areas of negligence and liability in order to obtain full financial recovery for car and motorcycle victims of semi trucking accidents, tractor trailer accidents, and other truck accidents:

  • Truck driver negligence: Was the accident caused as a result of driver fatigue? Was the driver speeding or utilizing stay-awake drugs? Was the driver weaving in and out of traffic or cutting off other cars? Did the driver misjudge clearance? Did the truck driver incorrectly submit driving logs and truck maintenance logs?
  • Trucking company negligence: Did the trucking company habitually utilize negligent hiring practices in hiring unqualified drivers or drivers with a criminal record or drug history? Did the company maintain the vehicles to avoid placing unsafe trucks on the road?
  • Defective or dangerous parts: Was the vehicle properly maintained? Did the truck have sufficient reflective tape to enhance truck visibility and avoid nighttime accidents? Did defective brakes, tires, or other truck parts cause the accident?

Commercial trucking companies often will have an investigation team at the scene of the accident almost instantaneously. It is their job to control the evidence and the scene. This investigation team uses all means necessary to mitigate the damage, the extent of your injuries, and deflect liability away from the truck driver and the trucking company. Therefore, it is critical that you immediately contact an experienced attorney who will advocate for your rights and recover evidence before it disappears.
