Determined Houston Lawyer Helps Victims of Serious Truck Accidents
Texas attorney adeptly fights for victims in trucking accident cases
Accidents involving large commercial trucks are more likely to cause catastrophic injury and death. At Anthony W. Hernandez, P.C. Attorney at Law in Houston, I help victims of trucking accidents obtain appropriate compensation. I have more than three decades of experience pursuing payment from negligent drivers and other liable parties, and am highly skilled at navigating these complex cases. Whether a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel, necessary maintenance was not performed, or the load exceeded the maximum allowed allotment, I will look into every aspect of your case and put together a thorough and detailed claim. My firm represents clients throughout Harris, Fort Bend, Brazoria, and Galveston counties in these matters.
Accomplished advocate thoroughly investigates the circumstances of your accident
Determining the cause of a trucking accident might require detailed analysis, so you need an experienced attorney who understands the factors that can trigger a collision and proper accident reconstruction techniques. Reviewing the driver’s log books, examining the data from the truck’s internal monitoring system and sending accident reconstruction experts to assess the crash site are just some ways I gather the evidence I use to build a case. I am very aware of the tactics used by trucking companies to avoid their legal responsibility, and I will not let you be intimated into taking less than you deserve.
Knowledgeable counselor fully understands state and federal trucking regulations
The trucking industry is highly regulated, and numerous state and federal laws dictate how commercial vehicles may be operated on roads and highways. These laws outline everything from driver training to maintenance schedules and the number of hours a driver may continuously operate a truck without a break. A deep knowledge of these laws and regulations is essential to effectively pursue a trucking accident claim, and my familiarity with these regulations can strengthen your case.
Experienced law firm pursues the maximum amount of available damages
Victims of commercial trucking accidents may be entitled to damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more if the truck driver’s and/or trucking company’s negligence caused the crash. If the truck driver or trucking company was grossly negligent, victims may recover punitive damages, which are designed to punish parties for their particularly reckless actions. Further, in cases where both parties caused the collision, Texas law will still allow injured plaintiffs to recover some damages as long as the truck driver or trucking company was at least 50 percent at fault. I have extensive experience proving damages at trial and will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm they caused.
