San Antonio Truck Driver Negligence Attorney

Negligence in a truck driving accident can take many forms, but the outcome is the same: serious injuries and death suffered by fellow motorists who were at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Truck drivers must adhere to a variety of federal mandates that govern time on the road and rest breaks. Laws exist to protect them and other drivers. Pressure from employers to be more "efficient" and other types of shortcuts compromise safety and create potentially deadly situations on Texas roads.

How Negligence Can Change The Lives Of South Texas Residents

At The Bates Law Firm, our attorneys represent injured South Texas residents and those grieving the death of a loved one killed in a truck accident caused by:

  • Driver fatigue from driving too many hours without rest
  • Alcohol and drug use, including over-the-counter medications
  • Poor truck maintenance, specifically brakes
  • Insufficient inspections of vehicles, specifically tire treads
  • Poor driver performance due to lack of experience and proper training
  • Vehicle design and manufacturing defects
  • Overloaded vehicles

While our clients seek medical care or grieve the loss of a family member, we attend to every detail of their legal claim. Truck accidents are initially violent and result in long-term trauma. With the help of experts, we build strong claims to maximize the recovery of damages.

The sooner accident victims speak to us before speaking to an insurance adjuster, the sooner we can get to work in holding negligent parties accountable.
