$2.635 Million Total Case Result for Injuries in 18-Wheeler Accident

The two were traveling on I-35 when the driver of a Ford F 150 sped out of control and across several lanes of traffic. The clients slowed to a stop to avoid hitting traffic ahead of them. An 18 wheeler traveling in the right hand lane side swiped their vehicle on the right.

Why Hire a Commercial Truck Accident Lawyer?

If you or a loved one was harmed in a crash with an 18-wheeler, the stakes are high. You may be facing mounting medical bills, physical pain and emotional suffering, and you may not be sure what the future holds. The insurance company representing the at-fault commercial vehicle has a team of people working to make sure they pay out as little as possible to the injured – you. While you are working to recover from the accident, an insurance representative is building a case that minimizes their employer’s responsibility for the crash. They may deny fault, minimize the severity of your injuries, or offer only the smallest sum to make the claim go away.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Safe miles logged can be a source of pride for 18 wheeler truck drivers. The work of 18 wheelers are responsible for moving the commercial goods we rely on each day from the manufacturing facility to our homes.

Unfortunately, some companies put profit over safety. Trucking companies employ drivers with known history of driving under the influence. Others fail to properly maintain the vehicles – putting drivers and other road users at harms way of vehicle failure. In a famous Austin crash, a gravel truck’s brake failure caused severe injury to a McMinn Law Firm client.

Drivers too tired to operate a vehicle too often still get behind the wheel. Operating a vehicle as large as an 18 wheeler takes a great deal of attention.

  • Fatigued driving
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded vehicles
  • Driving under the influence
  • Brake failure
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding, or traveling at an unsafe speed

"Jason, Justin, and their entire support team represented me in an accident involving an 18 wheeler. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome, and maybe as importantly, the service along the way was something you would want as a client, their entire team was amazing! I can with great confidence recommend them to friends, family, and to anyone who happens to read this. Thank you McMinn Law Firm for a job well done!"

"The McMinns were amazing. Within two days of my accident – and still barely able to move – I received a visit to my house for personal consultation (on a Saturday). All the initial feedback about my potential case turned out to be 100% accurate, and when it finally came time to settle they didn’t back off an inch. …If you’re hurt, make the call."

- Harry
