Experienced Houston rear-end truck accident lawyers who fight for you

Our attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve

Rear-end truck accidents in Texas often turn out to be serious accidents. That’s because of the large size of many tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, and other commercial trucks. In an instant, you or a loved one can be seriously injured when a truck crashes into the back of your vehicle. These accidents can be especially severe if a truck crashes into your car on a highway.

Knowing what to do after a rear-end truck accident can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are might not be clear. That’s why it’s important to talk with an experienced Houston rear-end truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. We want to meet with you at Smith & Hassler because our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience fighting for the rights of truck accident victims in Houston and throughout Texas.

  • Speeding truck drivers
  • Distracted truck drivers
  • Reckless truck drivers
  • Drunk truck drivers
  • Truck drivers falling asleep at the wheel
  • Mechanical defect with truck
  • Poorly maintained truck crashes into your car

Is this how your rear-end ruck accident happened? Or are you dealing with another type of rear-end truck accident? Whatever the circumstances of your Houston rear-end truck accident, we know what evidence to look for to build a strong, successful legal case.

What makes rear-end truck accidents so complicated?

You might think that your rear-end truck accident would be straightforward. A truck driver crashed into the back of your car and clearly caused your accident. The reality is many rear-end truck accidents turn out to be far more complicated than many people expect. Reasons why include:

  • The truck driver denies doing anything wrong.
  • The truck driver blames you for causing your rear-end truck accident.
  • The trucking company refuses to provide information about your truck accident.
  • The trucking company’s insurance company denies your claim.

Whatever legal issues you’re dealing with after your rear-end truck accident, we can help you every step of the way.

What should I do after my rear-end truck accident?

If you or a loved one was injured recently in a rear-end truck accident, we strongly advise to take the following steps:

  • Seek medical attention if you have not already done so. Even if you have, schedule a follow-up doctor’s appointment because many injuries take time to develop.
  • Contact our law firm as soon as possible. We can help you in many ways, including:
    • Making sure your accident report is accurate
    • Reviewing the so-called “black box” data from the truck. This information can include the speed the truck was traveling, the last time the truck driver took a break and other important information
    • Negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf
    • Representing you at all court appearances, if necessary
