Maintaining Truck Safety Can Reduce Accidents
Trucking accidents may involve drivers, owners, warehouses and vehicle maintenance crews, to name just a few of the many parties that could play a part. At the Houston, Texas, law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, our attorneys have been helping people who have been seriously injured in semi-truck accidents for more than half a century.
We have a thorough understanding of federal and state trucking laws and a strong track record of recovering compensation for our clients. It is never too early to hire an experienced Houston, Texas, truck accident lawyer to represent you. Many commercial trucking firms have an investigator at the accident site before you are even checked into your hospital room. Evidence of the trucking company's liability that could be found at the scene may not be preserved.

When Companies Disregard Trucking Safety, It Puts Drivers at Risk
Common violations of safety laws and other trucking regulations include:
- Hours of service violations
- Trucks from Mexico that do not follow NAFTA's guidelines
- Poor or improper truck maintenance
- Commercial truck drivers with fraudulent licenses
Oversized, overweight or improperly loaded trucks
- Inadequate underride guard protections
Many commercial trucking accidents and 18-wheeler wrecks involve a variety of parties and truck owners. Our firm is committed to helping our clients recover maximum compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses from those who are responsible.
