Taking On Big Opponents To Win Truck Accident Claims
A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh over 80,000 pounds. That much weight travelling at highway speeds can cause serious injuries or even be lethal if not properly controlled. Unfortunately, when a truck accident happens, the victim often finds that neither the truck driver nor the trucking company want to take responsibility. A fight may be necessary to hold them accountable and get full compensation.
At the Law Office of Michael R. De La Paz in San Antonio, we refuse to let truckers and the transportation companies they work for get away with causing harm to innocent drivers. We build strong, trial-ready cases. We go head to head with these big opponents and their insurance companies to do what is right for the victim. If you or a loved one has been hurt because of a careless 18-wheeler driver or trucking company, you can be confident in our ability to fight to get you every penny you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses. This is what we do.

What Are Common Causes Of Trucking Accidents?
A key part of determining liability is identifying what exactly caused the accident. There are many possible causes ranging from driver fatigue to speeding to mechanical failure and many other possible causes. By conducting a thorough investigation, we will determine why your accident happened and use that information to help us pursue compensation from each party that was responsible for the errors that caused the accident.
Who Is Responsible For The Accident?
Once the cause has been identified, this can indicate different parties may be responsible for the accident. There are many different parties that could be responsible for a trucking accident. From the truck driver to the trucking company and any number of other parties that were involved with the vehicle, its loading or even the road itself.
