Trusted San Antonio truck accident attorneys
Find out how we can help you
Texas is a major transportation hub, and commercial trucks travel through San Antonio each day. When they're involved in an accident, people can get seriously hurt. When this happens, the truck accident lawyers at Tracey & Fox hold the negligent parties responsible.
Tractor-trailers, or 18-wheelers, can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Other commercial trucks are also much larger than cars. These include box trucks, refrigerator trucks, dump trucks, logging trucks, flatbed trucks, oil tank trucks, cement and concrete trucks. When they crash into a car, the damage can be severe.
The injuries caused by a truck accident can also be quite serious and life-changing. People may suffer injuries to the spinal cord or a traumatic brain injury. They may lose a limb. Other serious injuries include burns, broken bones and damage to internal organs. Minor injuries can include muscle sprains, cuts and bruises.
These injuries can also have a major financial impact. The cost of treatment can get quite expensive, especially when surgery and hospital stays are required. There may be additional doctor's visits needed, as well as physical therapy and medication. If a person is left unable to work, it can be hard to pay the bills.
