December 06, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Inver Grove Heights, MN based McEwen & Kestner, PLLC is proud to announce that they have extended their services to cover 18 Wheeler Accidents in Texas. This development follows their decision to cover truck accidents earlier this year. The trucking lawyers handle 18 wheeler accidents throughout Texas and other states. They have the expertise and the experience required to give their clients the very best advice. With the firm’s guidance, clients can ensure that they get the best outcome for their unfortunate situation.
Pete Kestner from McEwen & Kestner, PLLC says, “After being involved in a truck accident, there are several steps that need to be taken in order to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for injuries sustained in the crash. In Texas, you can only recover damages if you are under 50% at fault for the crash under the proportionate responsibility law. All too often, those injured in a crash involving an 18 Wheeler lose out, causing pain and suffering not only for themselves but for their entire family as well as others who depend upon them.”
Houston, due to its location and sheer volume of traffic, is often in the news for yet another 18 wheeler accident. Anyone looking for a Houston 18 wheeler accident lawyer can now call the firm directly from their new website at their earliest convenience. They are available to speak to anyone involved in an accident 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and a free consultation is offered to those in need. Due to their considerable size and weight, trucks can pose a larger threat to safety while operating alongside other motorists, as even small errors can lead to serious damage to smaller vehicles and their occupants.
The first step the firm recommends to anyone involved in a truck accident in Texas is to engage a Texas truck accident lawyer. The two highest causes of truck accidents are driver error or mechanical failures, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In addition to inexperienced driving, driver fatigue, cell phone use, texting, distractions and intoxication are some of the key reasons why driver errors are the most common source of accidents involving a truck.
Across the US, there is a shortage of experienced 18 wheeler truck drivers, compounded by the fact that thousands of truck drivers lost their jobs in 2019 after a highly profitable year in 2018. Trucking company bankruptcies tripled in the first half of 2019 (with around 640 going bankrupt). Some drivers have also had their trucks repossessed after missing a single payment due to the downturn and race to the bottom on trucking rates.
Another key aspect for anyone involved in an 18 wheeler trucking accident to realize that the truck driver’s insurance will try to make contact with anyone involved in an accident to ask questions. It is important to remember that they are not on the side of the victim. Their purpose is often to minimize their costs by providing a quick settlement—or to get away with not paying anything at all. Anyone being pressured to release their medical records or getting random calls to ascertain their fitness and recovery should simply end the call and phone their trucking lawyer.
Given that trucking injury cases can be complicated in nature, any individual involved in one needs to engage a knowledgeable and experienced Texas truck accident lawyer. McEwen & Kestner, also known as The Trucking Lawyers, are the best truck accident attorneys for 18 wheeler accidents in the state. With a dedicated personal injury lawyer at their side, their clients get the most out of their time in court or in settlement discussions.
Kestner continues, "Regardless of the reasons why any truck accident has occurred, insurance providers are meant to handle them so that the victims are fully compensated for their losses. That is rarely the case, however. We know you need a strong advocate who understands how to provide the information to ensure that you get a fair assessment under the Texas proportionate responsibility law. We are the ones who will be there to make sure that everyone impacted is compensated fairly and justly. Insurance companies will often neglect to cover things like subsequent medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, loss of income, and the emotional strain on those injured and the rest of their families."
Those involved in an 18 wheeler or any kind of truck accident are encouraged to take advantage of the firm’s extensive expertise dealing with any kind of trucking accident, and either speak to them directly or request a free evaluation through their website. Interested parties can learn more about the trucking lawyers and their services by contacting Pete Kestner directly as well.
