Pearland Truck Accident

Pearland Truck Accident Lawyer

Drive on SH 288, 610, I-10, 45, 59, or any highway or interstate in Texas and you will see numerous 
semi trucks carrying cargo across the country. The drivers of these 18-Wheelers are trained and tested to ensure safety on the roads, but just like with carsmotorcycles, and SUVs, accidents happen.

More than 600 people die on Houston area roads every year and nearly 3,000 are injured seriously enough to require a trip to the emergency room. The tremendous size and weight of large trucks adds to the devastation an accident with one of these vehicles can cause. Injuries and damages are almost unavoidable in a truck accident. Legal representation is a necessity for victims when fighting for compensation from the trucking company’s insurance adjusters who are looking to settle for as little as possible. As an experienced personal injury and truck accident lawyer, James Zier will advocate for your rights and fight for the maximum compensation possible. Whether your injuries have been caused by a delivery truck, UPS truck, FedEx truck, Amazon Prime van, dump truck, cement truck, Ford Explorer, semi truck, garbage truck, or some other type of heavy truck or large vehicle, we can help.

Don’t Settle for Less with Insurance Adjusters

As with any accident, trucking accident victims need to act quickly. Don’t delay in calling an experienced truck accident lawyer. The trucking companies may attempt to convince you their initial settlement offer is reasonable and that an attorney is unnecessary. Do not listen. Although an initial offer may seem reasonable at first, you’ll want to consider your long-term needs and hire an attorney before accepting any offer. Although they will try to convince you otherwise, the insurance adjuster is not your friend and is trying to pay you the least amount possible. Our experienced truck accident attorney can properly assess your damages and the impact those damages may have on your future so you don’t settle for less than you deserve.

Pearland truck accident attorney James Zier knows exactly how to handle insurance adjusters and fight for the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled. If you are involved in an accident with an
18-Wheeler, Semi Truck, Tractor Trailer, or Big Rig, there are a few things to remember:

  • Only speak to the police and your attorney
  • Never speak to anyone from the insurance company
  • Don't allow or consent to a recorded statement
  • Take photographs at the scene
  • Seek medical attention
  • Get the names and phone numbers of witnesses
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible 
  • Don’t sign anything without your attorney

Failure to take appropriate action immediately after a truck accident can negatively impact your potential claim.
