Houston Truck Driver Accident Attorney

Truck drivers are paid either by the load or by the mile. These arrangements may cause the driver to rush his or her trip, or fail to conduct the proper safety checks on the vehicle before getting on the road. This negligence on the part of the truck driver can result in serious or catastrophic accidents. If you have been severely injured in a truck accident, you need a Houston lawyer with experience handling accidents involving truck driver negligence.

Experienced Representation, Personal Service

Brian Jensen has been in practice for nearly 40 years. He has been a board-certified personal injury attorney since 1982. He is a trial lawyer who is not afraid to take your case to court if the insurance company is unwilling to give full and fair compensation for your injuries. At the Houston law firm of B. L. Jensen, L.P., we have a long track record of success in trucking accident cases. We will be your zealous advocates and work closely with you, staying in regular contact throughout your case.

Truck drivers are required to report an accident to their company as quickly as possible. Frequently, the trucking company or its insurance carrier will send a representative to the accident scene to investigate and mitigate liability. It is imperative that you have the same kind of hard-hitting representation on your side if you have been severely injured.

Trucking accidents caused by truck driver negligence can occur for many reasons, including:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to perform a full safety inspection
  • Driving too fast
  • Illegal lane changes
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trailers
  • Distracted driving on the part of the truck driver
  • Improper or lack of maintenance

Our lawyers will investigate all of these potential issues by reviewing the driver's logbooks and gaining access to the truck's black box, which records speed and travel time among other things. We will work diligently on your behalf to show negligence on the part of the driver and prove the extent of the damage done to you. Our goal is to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.
