Houston Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyer
Compensation for 18-wheeler and big rig crashes
Plenty of commercial vehicles are on the road in the Houston area, but none are larger than tractor-trailers. We see tons of these big trucks in Houston, and for good reason: As the largest city in Texas and home of one of the busiest ports in the United States, our city has plenty of cargo on the move every day.
We can't understand the importance of the trucking industry to our economy - but we also can't understate the seriousness of truck accidents. Our Houston tractor-trailer accident lawyers have worked with hundreds of victims, and we've seen just how devastating these crashes can be firsthand. If you've been hurt due to a trucking company's negligence, the attorneys at Tracey Fox & Walters are here to help.
We understand the legal complexities involved in Houston tractor-trailer accidents
When tractor-trailers are involved in wrecks, multiple entities can get involved, making these accidents much more complex than those involving two passenger cars. To begin with, the cab and the trailer usually have separate insurance, and each insurance company may have different levels of liability depending on the circumstances of the crash. The owner of the cargo may also be an entirely separate company with separate insurance - which can be especially relevant if the truck was carrying hazardous cargo, such as petroleum products, that contributed to the accident.
And because the Port of Houston handles shipping on a national and international scale, it's not uncommon for one of the involved companies to be located in another state, or even in another country. Tracking down those companies to get compensation for victims can be a difficult task - but our tractor-trailer accident attorneys are up to the challenge.

These are big, high-stakes claims, and they have teams of attorneys and adjusters on their side to reduce or deny your claim.
