8,000 Texans Are Hurt Each Year In Truck Wrecks

18-wheeler trucks and other commercial vehicles are involved in more than 30,000 crashes in Texas each year.* This accounts for nearly 8,000 injuries and hundreds of deaths. Unfortunately, these statistics seem unlikely to get prettier any time soon. Year-to-year trends suggest that the number of accidents is, if anything, expected to increase.

Victims and their family members face an array of immediate concerns. Most pressingly, they must find adequate medical care. Soon after, they must figure out how to pay for it. In many cases this can be overwhelming. Hospital bills, doctors' fees and related considerations accumulate quickly. Many feel it's impossible to meet their obligations.

The attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. Based in New Braunfels, and serving throughout central Texas, we have more than 60 years of experience helping injury victims obtain compensation after a serious trucking accident. Our firm has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of the clients we've served. We're prepared to help you, too.

What Causes Trucking Accidents?

Speeding remains the most common cause of trucking wrecks. In recent years, however, distracted driving — that is, texting-and-driving — has become an increasingly frequent factor. Likewise, accidents often ensue when drivers are fatigued, overworked or engaged in driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Mechanical errors — a faulty transmission, or a defective tire — may also be the source of an accident.

Our firm is skilled in pursuing compensation from all responsible parties, from the drivers to the companies they work for to the manufacturers at fault for making a deficient product. We seek financial damages for a full range of concerns, including:

  • Hospital bills
  • Doctors' fees
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses

We have earned a reputation for obtaining satisfactory compensation even if cases are difficult to prove, such as those including brain trauma and injuries to the spinal cord.
