Did you suffer serious injuries in an 18-wheeler accident in Austin?
Skilled Austin truck accident lawyer
Anyone who has traveled Austin’s roads and highways has often shared it with massive big rig trucks that haul huge loads across our country. The enormity of these vehicles when involved in an accident poses great risk for catastrophic injuries to other drivers on the road.
Due to the potential danger an 18-wheeler poses to other drivers if involved in an accident, we have very strict federal safety regulations which drivers and trucking companies alike, must obey. Sadly, sometimes these regulations are ignored and they cause catastrophic injuries and sometimes death.
