San Antonio 18 Wheeler Accident Attorney
When 18-wheelers are involved in auto accidents, the result is often serious or fatal. Unfortunately, negligent drivers who simply choose not to pay attention or to follow the rules often cause these accidents. These collisions can result in serious and life-altering injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, amputations, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, or even result in death.
If you or a family member is suffering after a wreck involving a commercial vehicle, it is essential to get experienced legal counsel involved as promptly as you can. Here at The Law Office of Joe A. Gamez our experienced trucking accident attorneys will move decisively to protect your rights.
Trucking companies have unlimited resources at their disposal and will use almost any means necessary in defense of their driver. The first thing they always do is to immediately dispatch their investigation team to the accident scene to diminish their liability.
The trucking company will do everything in its power to strengthen its case and weaken the victim’s chance of recovery. This is why it’s important for injured victims to immediately contact an experienced 18-wheeler accident lawyer with the resources, knowledge and experience to successfully recover the compensation deserved.
