Houston Truck & 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney | Lawyer




Understanding Trucking Accidents

Speak With A Houston Truck Accident Lawyer | Truck Accident Attorney



Trucking accidents can be a dangerous part of being on the road. Trucking has been and likely will always be a useful industry. It is a great way to transport goods and deliver products nationwide. Just like in automobile accidents however, there can be situations where a trucking accident cannot be avoided entirely. There might also be reasons that the trucking accident could have been prevented, and an experienced trucking accident attorney can help you in your case against the trucking company if you have been involved in a trucking accident.


We are the Kane | Varghese Law Firm. A Houston trucking accident attorney | lawyer at our law firm is here to help answer any questions you might have if you or someone you know have been involved in a trucking accident. You might have a valid claim against the trucking company, but you can be sure that their lawyers | attorneys will work hard to prevent YOU from getting what you deserve in your trucking accident claim. You need an experienced Houston trucking accident lawyer | attorney to provide help in your trucking accident lawsuit.


There can also be serious medical injuries that occur in a trucking accident. Only qualified and trained medical personnel should make any judgment on your medical condition after a trucking accident. You should not assume that just because you "feel OK" that you are in-fact, "OK". You should avoid saying things that make it seem like you are OK medically, as only a medical professional is certified to make that determination. You should seek a medical examiner as soon as possible after the trucking accident to make sure that any underlying injuries are addressed and resolved. Any future medical problems as a result of the trucking accident might also be determined; some of the effects of "whip-lash" for example, are not apparent until after the actual crash.

You should avoid doing or saying anything that might implicate yourself in the event of a trucking accident. They will likely have lawyers and representatives on call, ready to jump to the scene of the accident. Their aggressive tactics might make you feel as if you are at fault, even if this is not the case. Do not accept blame for anything and do not admit fault in any case. There will be a crash investigation to determine what the true reason for the trucking accident was, and it might be advisable to remain neutral until this outcome is known. Even if you feel that you may have been in error (or maybe misjudged something while you were driving) there might be circumstances outside of your control that are the true reason of the truck accident. It is possible that the driver simply failed to pay attention and is trying to shift the blame to you instead. There are also cases where the driver is too fatigued to be driving, or is not operating their vehicle in a safe and responsible manner.


There might be mechanical problems with their truck, or brakes that were failing, or any number of reasons that their vehicle should not be considered "fit" to be on the road to begin with. In the event of a trucking accident, there is too much chaos occurring for you to personally make an accurate judgment on the true reason for the trucking accident in the first place. This is true, even if you personally feel you might be partially responsible. Do not say or do anything that could make you appear responsible, even if you are feeling pushed into doing so. You should always consult with a Houston trucking accident attorney | lawyer at the Kane | Varghese Law Firm to help with these situations.
