Semi Truck Accident Lawyer in Austin, TX
A truck accident is like no other wreck. When an 80,000 lbs. semi-truck hits a 3500 lbs passenger vehicle, the passenger vehicle loses every time.
Texas is #1 in the entire United States in fatalities due to trucking accidents. We believe that these professional drivers who are driving for big truck companies must be held to a higher standard if they are to be sharing our roadways and highways with us and our families.
The insurance companies that insure big truck companies and that insure the Mom and Pop truck companies are not in the business of insurance because they like to pay out compensation.
Indeed, they try to do anything that they can to not pay out the true value of claims. Often times they will hold out offers that look like a lot of money, but due to huge hospital bills and needed treatment in the future for truck accident victims, these seemingly large sums are really quite meager.
If the truck insurance company gives you a take-it-or-leave-it offer, then what can you do? You need a trial lawyer. Not just a lawyer that does personal injury, but a lawyer that knows how to try a trucking case.
The great equalizer between the little guy and the trucking companies, their attorneys, and their insurance companies is the 7th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and your Right to a Trial by a Jury of Your Peers. You need an experienced trial lawyer that has the resources, the ability, and the passion for law to pursue truck accidents like no other.
That is what we offer you at Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C.
