THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Texas highways are home to thousands of commercial trucks and 18 wheelers. When they cause accidents, it is almost always due to negligence. Our local Austin truck accident lawyers can prove it.

LEARN THE FACTS

Truck drivers and companies must follow strict state and federal guidelines. When they don't, severe injuries and even deaths are often the result. Our team has the experience and the know-how to review the facts of your case and find evidence of negligence. Reserve your free case review now.


HIRE GOOD LAWYERS

People are often hesitant to hire lawyers, because they think it will cost a lot of money. At Steven C. Lee & Associates, we don't charge any out of pocket fees. We have decades of experience winning cases against trucking companies, and only charge fees when we've won your case.


FOCUS ON RECOVERY

The most important thing you can be doing after a trucking accident is recovering - both physically and emotionally. When you hire our experienced truck accident lawyers, we take the burden of filing paperwork and fighting with the insurance companies off of your back.


RECEIVE COMPENSATION

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries or loss of life due to the negligence or errors of a commercial trucker or trucking company, you are entitled to compensation. How much you get depends on the circumstances of the case, as well as the experience of the attorneys you hire.

PROVING NEGLIGENCE

Trucking companies have many types of regulations to follow, such as hiring, training, drug testing, inspections, maintenance, drivers’ hours, and record keeping. All that it takes to prove negligence is showing that the trucking company or driver was violating at least one of them when your accident took place.

TRUCK ACCIDENT FACTORS

Negligence That Leads To Accidents

There are many factors that can lead to trucking accidents, including a tired or distracted driver, poor training, drug or alcohol use by the driver, overloaded or improperly loaded trucks, brake failures, misjudging stopping distances, excessive speeding, and the use of retreaded or recapped tires, which are known to cause tire blow outs. If any of these apply to the truck from your accident, then you likely have a case.

FAILURE TO MEET REGULATIONS

State & Federal Regulations Matter

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires drivers to rest at least 10 hours between shifts. Drivers aren't permitted to drive more than 60 hours per week, or more than 11 hours in one day, or to work more than 14 hours in a 24 hour period. Drivers must be physically examined regularly, must pass drug tests, and must submit logs on each trip. If they broke any of these rules, we'll find out.

HOW TO HANDLE A TRUCK ACCIDENT

It is vital that you call an attorney following a truck accident. Time is of the essence when building a strong case. Our truck accident lawyers are fully prepared to take immediate action to represent you in your personal injury claim.

DON'T RUSH TO GIVE A STATEMENT

Do not give a statement to anyone other than law enforcement officials without talking to an attorney first. Insurance adjusters only ask you questions to find out how little they can pay you, not how much. Let us talk to them for you.

HAVE THE FACTS INVESTIGATED

It's not always obvious when a truck accident is the fault of the trucking company or driver. Only by reviewing the facts and evidence can you know for sure. That's exactly what we do on every truck accident case our firm takes.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LAWYERS

Your truck accident lawyers should be knowledgeable about state and federal regulations that govern trucking operations. They should also have a team of experts who can review and reconstruct the scene. Experience is key.

RECOVER FROM THE TRUCK ACCIDENT

Truck accidents are emotionally, financially, and physically stressful ordeals. Moving on with your life & healing should be your number one concern. Securing for you the highest degree of justice and compensation will be ours.
