San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyer

Semi-truck on side of road

Our San Antonio truck accident attorneys have years of experience representing clients seriously injured in commercial truck accidents. We have successfully recovered millions for our clients and their families.

Large commercial trucks serve a valuable purpose in today’s society. However, these motor vehicles can also be extremely dangerous. It has been reported that several thousand individuals lose their lives in fatal truck accidents each year in the United States. Smaller motor vehicles like cars or motorcycles have to share the roads and highways with these trucks, leaving them vulnerable to severe accidents. Typically, truck drivers are highly alert and have undergone extensive training to allow them to operate these commercial vehicles properly. Unfortunately, truck drivers, trucking companies, and other parties can fail to exercise the necessary care to prevent accidents, and their negligence may lead to catastrophic results.

Hilliard Law has been providing passionate legal representation to clients since 1985. Our experienced team of lawyers will relentlessly pursue justice for your injuries and losses after you have been injured in a harmful truck accident.

Understanding Truck Accident Claims in San Antonio

Due to the sheer size and mass of commercial trucks, when truck accidents occur, they are often catastrophic. Victims often sustain significant injuries and then must face large commercial trucking and insurance companies to pursue compensation.  As such, the process may become quite complicated for injured clients.  While victims of all serious motor vehicle accidents benefit greatly from working with an experienced attorney, truck accident claims in particular often require the skills and resources of a truck accident lawyer to be successful.

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident in Texas?

Liability in a truck accident claim is often difficult to determine as there may be multiple parties who are partly responsible. The parties that may be found at-fault for a truck accident in San Antonio include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturers
  • Cargo loaders
  • Any other party that may have contributed to or caused the accident

If you are unsure who may be held liable for your Texas truck accident, it is important that you consult one of our experienced truck accident lawyers.

  • Lost earning potential
  • Property damage

If you are unsure what damages you may be eligible to recover, our Texas legal team may be able to assist you.

Why You Should Hire a San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyer
