Maximizing Your Compensation From a San Antonio Truck Crash

by | Apr 2, 2019 | Lawyers

Semi-trailers and other large commercial vehicles are far larger than any type of automobile, van or SUV that you might be driving. They’re much less maneuverable than your vehicle and about 20 times heavier too. Even on dry roads, they can take 20 to 40 percent more pavement to come to a complete stop than a passenger vehicle. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident in San Antonio TX that was caused by the driver of a semi-trailer or other large commercial truck, you’ll want to talk with us here at the Law Office of Jesse Hernandez. We’re committed to ensuring that each of our clients receives the maximum compensation that is available for the injuries and damages that they suffered.

Given the massive size and weight of semi-trailers, an accident victim is far more likely to suffer severe and permanent injuries than he or she would in a typical auto accident. Here are some of those injuries, all of which can be permanent.

  • Traumatic brain injuries.
  • Traumatic spinal cord injuries.
  • Organ damage.
  • Multiple fractures requiring surgeries.
  • Spinal injuries requiring surgeries.
  • Severe burns.
  • Deep lacerations with scarring.

Other people or entities might be held liable in a truck crash than just the driver. Sometimes, semi-trailer crashes are caused by poor brake and tire maintenance by the owner of the truck or trailer, improper loading by a cargo company or poor repair work by an independent garage.

After a truck accident in San Antonio TX, the law doesn’t require you to cooperate with an opposing insurer. That insurer is only going to try and push some or all of the blame for the accident over onto you. Rather than that, contact our offices to arrange for a free consultation and case review. Remember that our objective is to maximize any compensation that you might receive.
