Accomplished Houston Firm Offers Strong Representation for Trucking Accident Victims
Experienced personal injury attorney seeks full compensation for Texans hurt in vehicle crashes and other incidents
Trucking accidents involve large vehicles, frequently carrying transport, that are much heavier and can cause more extensive damage than other vehicles on the road. If you have been injured in a trucking, auto or other accident that has significantly affected your quality of life, an assertive personal injury attorney can help you present the details of your case and hold the negligent party responsible. At Merrill & Associates, our firm has spent more than twenty years tenaciously upholding the rights of personal injury victims in the greater Houston area and across Texas in trucking, auto, motorcycle, and non-transportation-related injuries involving negligence. Texas is a fault insurance state, which means every driver is responsible to pay for the damages they cause during an accident. At our firm, we have the skill and background to hold those drivers responsible and obtain maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries.
Responsible representation for accident victims in Texas
After an accident, it is crucial to work with a skilled personal injury attorney who can negotiate proper compensation for your injuries and other damages. We provide steadfast legal support for a range of accidents, including:
- Trucking accidents — Because of the potential damage large commercial trucks can cause in a collision with a smaller vehicle, they are required to follow federal regulations when it comes to driver rest, weight load and vehicle maintenance. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, we will get to work immediately to determine the liable parties, which may include the trucker, the company that owns the vehicle, or others. We have the knowledge and experience to challenge powerful interests in even the most complex claims.
- Bicycle, pedestrian and motorcycle accidents — In bicycle accidents and motorcycle crashes, as well as accidents involving pedestrians, serious injuries can result because victims lack the protection afforded to a car occupant. When drivers fail to respect your road rights and an accident results, we will fight to represent your interests and seek the full compensation your injuries demand, now and in the long term. If you or a loved one is injured in a crash caused by a drunk driver, we will seek civil damages in addition to the criminal charges they are likely to face.
- Wrongful death — In Texas, if a family member or spouse has died due to someone else’s carelessness, negligence, or other misconduct, you have two years to file a wrongful death claim and seek damages for your loss. We will press for the justice you deserve in seeking financial compensation for your mental anguish as well as the loss of the deceased’s earning capacity, loss of comfort and companionship, and other damages.
- Traumatic brain injury — Each year 1.7 million people in in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury, significantly altering the course of their lives forever. We offer compassionate, strong representation for our clients and their families to ensure they get the compensation they will need for years to come.
We also handle other types of injury claims, including those for clients injured by dog bites and victims of slip and fall incidents. With more than two decades spent fighting for the rights of injured Texans, we are committed to resolving even the most complex case so that our clients can heal and move forward. And because we work on contingency, you owe us nothing unless you are compensated through a settlement or verdict.
