2 Million People are Injured in Car Accidents Every Year in the US
As Austin’s oldest and most established personal injury law firm, we have been handling truck crashes for six decades. Put our decades of experience to work for you.
The people who suffer the most severe injuries in commercial truck accidents are not the truck drivers but the victims who are in the other vehicles involved in the truck crash.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that out of the nearly 4,000 people who died in the U.S. in truck accidents during one recent year:
There is a reason for this: The tractor-trailers (or 18-wheelers) we encounter on our roads are massive. They often weigh 20 to 30 times as much as passenger vehicles. They also have greater ground clearance. Smaller vehicles can readily “underride” a semi when a crash occurs.
As we have seen at Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson, LLP, most of these commercial truck accidents should never happen in the first place. They result from careless decisions made by truckers, trucking companies and others in the trucking industry.
Our personal injury lawyers help truck accident victims and their families in Austin and throughout Texas hold negligent parties accountable. We are committed to aggressively pursuing all compensation our clients are due.
Our personal injury firm offers experienced litigators who are well-versed in the many complex issues involved in commercial truck accident cases. We bring more than 60 years of personal injury and wrongful death law experience to the clients we serve and a record of delivering positive results.
Our truck accident lawyers have received high praise, accolades and ratings from Martindale-Hubbell, Texas Super Lawyers in Texas Monthly magazine, Best Lawyers in U.S. News & World Report, and others. We encourage you to read their profiles and learn more about their highly professional, compassionate and ethical approach to serving clients.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a collision with a commercial truck, we want to help you. Taking immediate action is crucial.
