El Paso Truck Accident Attorney

Lawyer for Commercial Trucking Crashes in Texas

Commercial trucks can cause devastation in an instant. The people who drive these trucks have an enormous responsibility to drive safely for the sake of everyone else on the roads. Big rigs can be deadly weapons, and it is important for truck drivers to keep that in mind while they are operating vehicles on public roads. Unfortunately, some drivers do not put safety first. They may be on too tight of a schedule to comply with hours of service regulations, or they may feel that they can safely multitask while driving. Whatever the cause, truck accidents can cause immense damage when they are not driven with care.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, the Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC may be able to help you recover substantial compensation. The injuries that stem from these accidents tend to be serious, catastrophic, or even fatal. The cost of these accidents can be astronomical when added up. Cal understands the difficulty of recovering - personally and financially - from a truck accident. He can take on the trucking company and insurance companies for you so that you can focus on your healing.

Texas Lawyer for Truck Accident Investigations

The scene left behind after a big rig crash can be chaotic, often involving multiple other vehicles. This can make the accident difficult to reconstruct, and the cause difficult to prove, but Cal is prepared for the task. Most accidents of this nature occur because the truck driver or the company they worked for were careless about safety. Common causes of 18-wheeler accidents include:

  • Hours of service violations - Drivers are required by federal law to take rest breaks at certain intervals. Drivers who fail to take these breaks as required can easily become overtired, or they may even fall asleep at the wheel, leading to a truck wreck.
  • Overloaded cargo - When rushing to fulfill orders, truck drivers may overload their trucks. This can make keeping control over the truck difficult, or it may even cause the load to fall from a truck and cause injuries to others.
  • Distracted driving - Long-haul truck drivers may believe that they are able to safely send a text message or check their social media accounts while driving. This is both illegal and unsafe.
  • Delivery schedules - Trucks operated by Amazon, UPS, or FedEx are often on very tight schedules. Drivers may make mistakes while rushing to fulfill orders quickly.
  • Intoxication - Drug and alcohol testing for a truck driver who has been in an accident may show that they were under the influence of these substances and that their ability to drive a commercial truck safely was impaired.

Recovering Compensation After a Truck Accident

Truck wrecks can leave you severely injured. It is likely that you are facing sky-high medical bills while missing work. If you have suffered catastrophic injuries, you may never be able to return to your career. Fortunately, medical bills and lost wages are compensable. The goal of compensation is to leave you in the same financial position you would have been in had the accident never happened.

Cal will carefully calculate the amount of compensation to demand. He will review each category of possible damages in order to make sure that every expense and loss is accounted for so that you can recover the highest possible amount of compensation.

Legal Help After a Truck Accident Fatality

Truck accidents are all too commonly fatal. If you have lost an immediate family member in a truck wreck, you may be entitled to compensation. While the harm cannot be undone, pursuing a wrongful death claim can help your family remain financially secure and cover certain expenses related to your loved one's passing.
