Although truck and bus accidents occur with less frequency than car accidents, truck accidents and bus accidents more often result in serious injury and death. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has implemented rules of the road that govern the conduct and safety of truck companies, bus companies and the drivers that man those vehicles. The consequences for misconduct or violations of safety procedures are steep, and victims of their negligence have a right to compensation.
Any automobile accident has the potential for serious injuries; however, an accident involving an 60,000 pound tractor trailer truck increases the likelihood of serious injury and death. Tractor trailer drivers are sometimes contracted by large companies who, when a critical injury or wrongful death results from the negligence of one of their truck drivers, would rather protect their own financial interests than compensate you for your injuries and damages.
Texas attorney David B. Robinson will prosecute cases involving truck and bus companies, especially when they are trying to unfairly pay you less than you need to cover medical costs, irreparable physical damage, and lost wages.
