Arnold & Itkin trial attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, Roland Christensen, and Claire Traver filed suit today in Webb County, Texas for a man who was severely injured when his vehicle was struck by a distracted driver. The driver was operating a large commercial truck, and the resulting collision was so intense that it caused our client to suffer serious injuries to his neck, back, head, and other parts of his body. He required invasive and extensive medical treatment as a result.
Accidents involving 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, and other large vehicles are more likely to cause catastrophic injuries such as the one experienced by our client. Commercial trucks may weigh 80.000 pounds when fully loaded, and if they are involved in traffic accidents like the one discussed above, the smaller vehicle is at a higher risk of significant damage. Anyone inside that vehicle may suffer life-changing injuries.
Trucking companies and all employers have an obligation to hire and train drivers who are safe and attentive. If they don't, accidents like this one can happen. Our truck accident lawyers look forward to helping our client get the answers, justice, and fair compensation he deserves.
