Upholding Your Rights After An 18-Wheeler Accident

Large commercial trucks are a constant presence on Interstate 2, I-37, I-69C and other highways near Corpus Christi and throughout South Texas.

Finding The Causes Of Truck Accidents

Many truck accidents are the direct result of negligence on the part of a truck driver or trucking company. In handling truck accident claims, Mark A. Di Carlo aggressively pursues the facts to determine if trucking regulations were violated or any kind of negligence contributed to the accident.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driver fatigue
  • Overloaded trucks and unbalanced loads
  • Faulty truck maintenance
  • Inadequate lights and reflectors
  • Violations of federal and state trucking regulations

Negligence on behalf of commercial driver's license holders can cause vehicle accidents on the highway as well as other hazards such as toxic chemical leaks from tanker trucks. Depending on the substance released, such leaks can result in fires, explosions and even diseases.

Semi Truck Accident Injuries

Large trucks often cause catastrophic injuries and, all too often, someone's death. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help determine who was responsible so that party can be held accountable.

Mark A. Di Carlo and staff consult with medical experts who help them assess the hardships clients face in the wake of a truck accident. The office may hire professionals such as accident reconstruction experts to help your case or product liability experts to determine why something in the truck, such as the brakes, failed. Mr. Di Carlo can apply extensive skill and experience in this legal area to help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other hardships.
