Arnold & Itkin’s truck accident attorneys have filed suit on behalf of two hardworking women who were seriously injured in a rear-end accident involving an 18-wheeler.
Our firm is representing two women who were rear-ended by a large commercial truck on Katy Freeway in Harris County. The incident occurred when a driver for Panther II Transportation, Inc. and Panther Premium Logistics misjudged the distance and was not paying attention while changing lanes. The 18-wheeler he was operating violently struck our clients’ vehicle, causing them to experience serious injuries.
Any collision involving a large truck has the potential to cause devastating injuries. Fully loaded, an 18-wheeler may weigh up to 80,000 pounds or more in certain circumstances. This weight gives it the power to literally crush a smaller vehicle. This is one of many reasons trucking companies and their drivers are held to a high standard when it comes to vehicle maintenance and roadway safety.
Companies must hire competent drivers and must demand that they put safety first. This includes paying full attention to the road and making safe lane changes. Our team looks forward to uncovering the underlying cause of our clients’ accident and holding all at-fault parties accountable. We’re prepared to go the distance to secure a fair and complete recovery on their behalf.
We filed this case in Harris County, Texas.
