18-Wheeler Accidents

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in an 18-wheeler or tractor trailer truck accident, you should consult with a lawyer. The attorneys at the Buzbee Law Firm are familiar with the specific laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry.  We have the resources to build a strong case for you. 

For potential new cases, contact us via email at tbuzbee@txattorneys.com or call the office toll-free at 1-800-992-5393.

Overloaded freight, poor maintenance, inadequate training, driver fatigue, and speed may be factors in any truck accident. State and Federal law regulates how trucks are maintained and drivers must fill out both pre-trip, and post-trip vehicle inspection reports. These reports can be crucial evidence that can help experienced counsel reconstruct the accident by establishing the condition of the truck.
