Tractor Trailer Accidents Attorney
Pearland Personal Injury Attorney


Large commercial trucks like tractor trailers share the road with vehicles much smaller and lighter. Tractor trailers can weigh more than 20 times as much as a passenger vehicle. Because of this, vehicles are usually crushed in an
auto accident with a tractor trailer or 18 wheeler. In addition, victims of tractor trailer accidents are more likely to be killed or sustain brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputations.

Experienced Personal Injury Representation in Pearland, Texas

Truckers are subject to numerous federal safety regulations that limit when and how they drive. However, truckers and trucking companies frequently put profits above the safety of others and ignore federal safety regulations in order to meet delivery deadlines. Some truckers will drive more than allowed by federal law with little or no sleep and even take illegal drugs to stay awake. Trucking companies will also hire truckers that don’t have a commercial driver’s license to save money. We have experience holding companies and their insurance carriers accountable for their negligent and reckless conduct. Let us help you get the maximum compensation for your pain and suffering and send a message to the trucking company that profits before safety is unacceptable.

Common Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents

Although there are many causes of tractor trailer accidents, some of the most common causes include:

  • Improperly secured loads
  • Debris from a trailer
  • Improper maintenance
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Inadequate training
  • Brake failure
  • Tire failure
  • Speeding
