Experienced and Aggressive Truck Accident Lawyers in Texas
Accidents Involving Truck Driver Fatigue
One of the most common causes of truck accidents is driver fatigue. Drivers are typically paid based on the number of miles they drive, so there’s an incentive to spend a lot of time on the road. There are state and federal regulations that limit the amount of time truckers can be behind the wheel, but those restrictions are often ignored in the pursuit of more income. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a truck driver whose judgment was compromised by a lack of rest, you want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to help you maximize your recovery.
At Bailey & Galyen, our Texas trucking accident lawyers have unparalleled experience—we’ve collectively handled more than 5,000 trucking accident claims over the last 20 years. We understand how defense attorneys prepare their cases and know how to prepare and present the most effective arguments for your full financial recovery. We’ll travel to the scene of the accident, if necessary, and we’ll work closely with our network of expert witnesses, including accident reconstruction specialists, medical professionals and financial planners, to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.
Aggressive Counsel in Cases Involving Truck Driver Fatigue
Under state and federal regulations, truck drivers are supposed to maintain a log to confirm that they have taken required breaks and are not on the road without adequate rest. Unfortunately, too many drivers either fail to fully complete the log or intentionally falsify entries, so that they can make more money. Our attorneys understand how the logs work and can often identify when logs have been fabricated.
We take a thorough approach, helping you recover for all your losses, from wages and income to medical expenses, from loss of companionship or consortium to physical pain and suffering. We handle claims involving all types of injury, from soft-tissue trauma to serious and catastrophic loss, including broken bones, brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, burns, permanent scarring or disfigurement, or amputation or loss of limb. We also litigate wrongful death claims arising out of truck accidents.
