Experienced Texas Truck Accident Attorneys Represent Both Trucking Companies and the Injured
Working to get tractor-trailer wreck victims justice
Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. Many trucking accidents can be avoided if truck drivers and responsible companies act with a minimum standard of care. When they do not, the attorneys at Derryberry Zips Wade Lawhorn, PLLC help you prove those companies’ and individuals’ negligence and liability.
Our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to ensure you obtain full and fair recovery for your injuries, including damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one in a trucking accident, we can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf. Our attorneys obtain the best possible recovery by applying their extensive litigation experience and settlement negotiations skills.
Defending trucking companies against all injury claims
People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the driver or the trucking company responsible for their injuries. In reality, the driver of the car or other vehicle involved is often the one who is truly responsible for the accident. Cars drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off, or hit trucks as they turn. The attorneys at Derryberry Zips Wade Lawhorn, PLLC help your company dispute liability.
