Your West Texas Legal Advocate

The Knowledgeable Advocacy You Need After A Truck Wreck

The dramatic growth in truck traffic on national highways is one of the reasons for the increase in truck accidents. Another cause is the presence of unregulated trucks from other countries on our roads, especially those from Mexico who enter the United States under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Regardless of where the trucks are from, due to their size and power, they can cause catastrophic injuries when they are involved in collisions with cars, motorcycles or smaller trucks. These include head and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputation and fatal injuries. When those accidents and injuries are the result of negligence, the law provides avenues for compensation to victims or their families. That’s where our lawyer at The Law Offices of John T. Montgomery can come in.

We are a Big Country firm that has offices in Abilene and Albany. Our attorney, John T. Montgomery, strives to maximize compensation for West Texas truck wreck victims, including compensation for current and future medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and more.

After A Truck Wreck, You Have Rights

Our lawyer can inform you of your rights, including the right to:

  • Know whether the driver was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Request the driver’s logbooks
  • Find out whether the driver was using their cellphone
  • View the driver’s and company’s previous wreck history and safety rating
  • Obtain data from satellite tracking devices that can verify speed
  • See the driver’s ticket/citation history

Our lawyer will be there to guide you through every step of protecting and asserting your rights in a complex truck wreck case.

Determining Who You Can Seek Compensation From

Many things contribute to the intricacy of truck accident claims. One is the number of parties that are involved. This includes the truck driver, the company they work for, the manufacturers of the truck and its parts, and the insurance companies of all these parties, to name a few. Sorting out who did what and who could be held legally accountable for what happened can be daunting. Our attorney is ready to help bring clarity to this often-confusing issue when it comes to your case.

Navigating Trucking Regulations In Injury Claims

Another thing that makes truck accident cases uniquely complex is the many layers of state and federal regulation on truck drivers and truck companies. This includes Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules, such as their hours of service regulations. When pursuing justice after a truck accident, it is important to have an advocate on your side who understands these rules and the specific impacts they can have on your personal injury claim. Our attorney is well versed in the many nuances of truck accident cases and will use his knowledge to help you in the fight for fair compensation.
