San Antonio Attorneys Representing Those Seriously Injured in Semi Truck Wrecks on Texas Interstates
The cost of a truck accident can be substantial when serious injuries and fatalities create additional expenses and in the case of a fatality, eliminate a source of income. At the law office of Tyler & Peery, our attorneys work closely with medical economists and life care planners evaluating the financial impact of a truck accident on our clients. Working from cost data maintained by HMOs and insurance companies, we consider the cost of current and future medical treatment, surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment, and lost wages. When gross negligence involves drunk driving or egregious violations of the law, our office pursues damages for loss in quality of life as well. And, since truck drivers often try and blame the other driver for causing an accident, our attorneys work with accident investigators in determining the cause of a tractor trailer accident.

Exposing Negligence on the part of Truck Drivers
It's not uncommon for truck drivers to blame a car driver for causing an accident. Exposing truck driver negligence is essential for assigning fault and recovering the full compensation you deserve. In investigating truck accidents our attorneys work with accident investigators in measuring skid marks, review data from a truck's on-board black box data recorder, analyzing GPS information, and inspecting a driver's log book.
By comparing fuel receipts against GPS information we can often determine if a truck driver exceeded his maximum allowable drive time hours. This is important in cases where driver fatigue is a factor.
