Truck 18 Wheeler Accidents

Truck & 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney in Austin

Former Defense Experience on Your Side

Our lead attorney, John Daspit, is a former defense lawyer who spent years working for Fulbright & Jaworski, one of the world's most prestigious and largest law firms. With unique insight into the law, our Austin personal injury attorney knows of common tactics that may be used by insurance companies, negligent truck drivers, trucking companies, or product manufacturers. We can use our insider knowledge to put our clients in an advantageous position - and our adversaries know it!

As a formidable force in and out of the courtroom, the legal team at The Daspit Law Firm is not afraid to go up against big insurance companies and press for your fair compensation after a serious accident. In fact, we are willing to send a message to insurance companies that we work to our fullest ethical and professional ability to make certain that people injured in truck accidents receive the maximum compensation that they are entitled to under the protection of the law.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Due to the sheer size, weight, and length of a truck or 18-wheeler, it comes as no surprise that these vehicles often take longer to stop or need more room to complete a wide turn. Any time a large semi-truck is involved in a collision with a smaller vehicle, the impending damages can be devastating. We can work to determine whether your accident was caused by the truck driver, truck company, truck manufacturer, and / or another party.

Causes of truck accidents include the following:

  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances
  • Bad, defective brake systems or other malfunctioning parts
  • Federal trucking regulations violations
  • Speeding, reckless, or aggressive driving
  • Unsecure cargo leading to overturns
  • Toxic exposure in collisions involving trucks transporting hazardous materials

In most cases, we are able to secure a satisfactory result from insurance companies through tireless representation of your rights in negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. Our seasoned litigator knows exactly what is needed to create a compelling case, and in most instances, our clients don't even have to step foot in the courtroom. With our Austin personal injury lawyer on your side, you can focus on regaining your health and returning to living life normally.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
