South Texas is huge. Texas is huge. Do you know what else is huge? The trucks that rumble down the road here, especially given the US/Mexico trade relationship. Those heavy trucks are rushing al norte to deliver products to America’s interior market, and sometimes their drivers don’t pay attention. If an 18-wheeler hits you or your car, the damage can be massive because they are so big, and they weigh so much – up to 40 tons when fully loaded and traveling within legal limits. Compare that with your car which weighs in at around 2.5 tons: you really don’t stand much of a chance if one of those things hits you.
If you have been hit by an 18-wheeler, you may have a case – a lucrative case – against them and their insurance. But you won’t know unless you call us and talk to an 18-wheeler accident lawyer in South Texas. At Villarreal Law Firm we get involved in a lot of cases concerning 18-wheelers and we have long experience of dealing with them.
18-Wheelers Can Cause Serious Injuries
The simple fact is that, because of their size, accidents involving 18-wheelers can very easily write off a family-sized saloon and cause serious injuries to the occupants. And let’s face it, if you have four occupants in the car and they are all injured, you have four cases against the 18-wheeler because everybody’s injuries are going to be different and the amounts of compensation will therefore differ. The one thing that you can be certain about is that the insurance company of the 18-wheeler is in for a lot of damages and will fight to try to pay out as little as possible.
This is why you need an 18-wheeler accident lawyer in South Texas to fight your corner, and this is what we do at Villarreal Law Firm. We have claimed very large amounts of compensation for people involved in these accidents, some of whom will never be able to work again. For example, we have recovered $12 million in a trucking accident, $420,000 when an 18-wheeler hit a passenger van, $375,000 when an 18-wheeler passed a vehicle in an unsafe manner, $600,000 when an 18-wheeler failed to control its’ speed in a construction zone, and a whole lot more besides. Altogether, we have obtained more than $500 million for our clients in verdicts and settlements.
So if you have been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler and need the services of an 18-wheeler accident lawyer in South Texas, come and talk to us at Villarreal Law Firm.
