Oil Field 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers In West Texas
With the continued growth of exploration and drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale formation, our roads are carrying a high volume of tractor-trailer traffic. These semis are transporting the large amounts of equipment and supplies which those drill sites require. The increased number of 18-wheelers heightens the possibility of an accident occurring which involves a semi and a car, truck or SUV.
Trucking accidents often produce catastrophic or fatal injuries. The physics of a car or light truck which may weigh 4,000 pounds being struck by an 18-wheeler weighing as much as 80,000 pounds is truly frightening. Common injuries associated with trucking accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
Recovering from such severe injuries can take years and require extensive medical care. Paying for that care requires that you are fully compensated for what you have gone through. Insurance companies go to extreme lengths to fight trucking accident cases because of the level of compensation needed by trucking accident victims. Overcoming an insurance company’s efforts calls for securing representation that has a track record of winning on tough cases.
