We Love What We Do and We're Good at It!
The last thing a family wants to deal with after a fatal accident is an insurance company that is only interested in protecting itself from liability. Our lawyers will conduct a full investigation of the accident and collect all of the evidence that is needed to preserve your right to compensation. We focus on your case so you can focus on your family's needs in its most difficult time.
In Texas, the response of jurors in fatal truck accidents has been to award a higher amount of damages when a violation of truck safety regulations is a contributing factor in an accident. By awarding additional damages to the survivors, the jury sends a message to the community and to the trucking industry that we will not tolerate trucking companies and drivers who put profits over safety.
We are committed to helping you obtain the full compensation you are entitled to for your devastating loss. Contact us today for a free consultation with an Austin fatal truck accident lawyer.
