Truck Accident Investigation

Uncovering the Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents in Houston, Texas

Trucking accidents can result in some of the most catastrophic injuries of any accident on the road. The size and weight of trucks are enough in themselves to make for total disaster when an 18-wheeler or semi collides with other vehicles. However, it is not merely a truck's size and weight that cause an accident. More often than not, these types of collisions are the result of negligence—negligence on behalf of the truck driver himself, negligence on behalf of the trucking company, and sometimes even negligence on behalf of truck product manufacturers.

After any crash involving a large vehicle it is imperative that investigation of the accident is conducted by someone with a thorough understanding of truck operating procedures and trucking laws. When the specific causes of an accident are being assessed, more than just the authority of an on-the-scene police officer will be required. Houston truck accident lawyers from Arnold & Itkin are more than qualified to provide legal help.

Immediately after an accident, one of our attorneys can be there to investigate and conduct interviews with on-the-scene individuals.

Therefore, we act quickly in retrieving this information and recording it for use during court trials. Furthermore, connecting with witnesses and officers at the time of the accident could prove to be beneficial for future court proceedings which may require that we call upon them for sworn depositions.
