Commercial Vehicle Accidents in San Antonio
Our lawyers can file your truck accident lawsuit
Drivers often share Interstates 35 and 37 with large commercial vehicles. Sometimes, trucking companies have to make deliveries to San Antonio businesses. Many commercial vehicles weigh up to 80,000, and if involved in a crash, they can cause severe damage to passenger vehicles.
Trucking companies are expected to hire experienced drivers and ensure that their vehicles are safe to operate. But not all trucking companies and drivers are as responsible as we’d like them to be. If you have been injured in a commercial vehicle accident because of someone else’s negligence, you need to consult an experienced San Antonio truck accident attorney at Tracey Fox & Walters.
Our law firm works hard to get results
Drivers of passenger vehicles should always be aware of large commercial vehicles. But trucking companies – and their drivers – are responsible for any damage they cause. This is especially true if:
- The driver was speeding or driving erratically
- The driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- The driver was distracted
- The driver was falling asleep at the wheel
- The trucking company failed to hire an experienced driver
- The trucking company failed to ensure that the vehicle was safe to drive
When trucking companies and their drivers fail to operate responsibly, they are in violation of the regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Our trusted law firm will investigate and gather crucial details to build a solid case. Don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll handle your case and pursue the results you deserve.

Handling a truck accident can be very complex. Unlike most individual motorists, trucking companies have a have a team of attorneys and investigators who will aggressively deny any wrongdoing on their part. They can launch an investigation within hours, stacking the deck in their favor. In order to make your case go away, they may offer you a small settlement. But as the burden of medical bills and loss of wages pile up, such a settlement is hardly enough. That’s why the trucking companies should be held accountable if their negligence causes an accident.
