A big truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds. The average passenger vehicle weighs about 3,000 pounds. When an 18 wheeler, semi-truck, tractor-trailer truck or other large commercial vehicles collides with an automobile, motorcycle or pedestrian, the results can be disastrous. Injuries can be severe, even fatal. The medical expenses can be astronomical. You may be permanently disabled and unable to ever return to work.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, you have a right to seek compensation for your pain, suffering and economic losses. The Houston trucking accident attorney team at the law firm of Ricardo N. Gonzalez & Associates understand the physical and emotional trauma associated with being in a large truck accident and are here to assist in your recovery and fight to make sure you get every penny owed for your damages.
We’ve Been Helping Victims of Truck Accidents in Houston and across Texas for Over 30 Years
Ricardo N. Gonzalez & Associates has been successfully representing victims injured in accidents involving big trucks for over 30 years. We have the skills and expertise to thoroughly investigate your accident, establish who was at fault and accurately estimate what your total damages will amount to. Our lawyers will hold the negligent parties in your accident responsible and aren’t afraid to aggressively challenge the insurance companies to get you the settlement you deserve, whether through tough negotiations, arbitration or trial.
Never agree to a settlement with an insurance company until after you’ve had a chance to talk to us. They’re only concerned about the bottom line and will often do whatever’s necessary to limit or eliminate your compensation.
Many times the settlement amount the insurance companies offer isn’t sufficient to cover the total costs of your medical expenses or lost wages. You need a dedicated attorney who will fight to protect your rights and get you the full compensation you require to get on with your life, no matter how much that amount may be.
We have helped people just like you in a wide variety of accidents involving trucks and other large commercial vehicles such as:
- 18 wheelers
- Tractor trucks
- Mix in Transit Trucks (cement mixers)
- Dump Trucks
- Flat-bed trucks
- Garbage trucks
