Texas truck driving is a dangerous business… literally. Truck drivers who speed, drive while fatigued, fail to pull over onto the road’s shoulder safely, or absentmindedly drift in and out of lanes can be held financially liable for any injuries they cause another motorist.
Most truck driving companies, however, anticipate this legal liability when it comes to Texas highway crashes. For this reason, they often coach truck drivers on how to respond to accusations of negligence in order to avoid or mitigate legal responsibility in an accident. Since there are four major blind spots on a truck, it’s not uncommon for truck drivers to claim a motorist was driving in one of them, and thus is responsible for the wreck.
At the Longview, Texas, personal injury law office of Clements & Clements, we work with experienced accident investigators to determine--and ultimately prove-- the true cause of a truck accident. By analyzing the GPS and black box data recorder of a truck, we use cold, hard facts (such as how fast a truck was going and whether or not the driver made sudden, sharp adjustments consistent with lane drift and driver fatigue) to solidify your claim to monetary damages.

If you lost a family member (spouse, parent, child, sibling) to a highway crash involving an 18-wheeler, semi, or large commercial truck, you may have a wrongful death case. A solid wrongful death case against the trucking company may help you recover monetary damages for ambulance and E.R. bills, the costs associated with funeral and burial, earning potential lost (if the deceased loved one contributed financially to the household), and pain & suffering.
