Austin Truck Accident Lawyers

Every year, hundreds of truck accidents take place on Texas highways leading to injuries and fatalities.

Whether the accident involves a big rig like a semi truck, an 18 wheeler, or a smaller truck, an accident involving one of these trucks often has devastating consequences. A big rig can weigh up to 80,000 lbs while a car may only weigh between 2,000 and 3,000 lbs. When a fully loaded truck collides with a car, the impact is usually the most devastating on the car. Injuries are almost certain and are often severe, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and death. Fatalities are not uncommon in trucking accidents and the passenger(s) of the smaller car are usually the ones impacted. A loaded semi truck can also carry hazardous cargo and toxic materials which when spilled after a crash, create dangerous conditions on the roads, for not just the truck driver and car involved in the accident, but for other motorists and pedestrians as well. The risks of poisoning, explosions, fires, etc. are very real.

In the moments after you have been involved in a truck accident, keep your wits about you. Do not give any statements to the trucking companies, their lawyers, or their insurers without your truck accident attorney present. Your Austin truck lawyer will begin investigating the accident immediately. The speed of the truck, the maintenance records, previous violations committed by the driver or the trucking company, eye witness statements, and other facts are very important to build a personal injury claim. There may be additional negligence, for example, if the driver of the truck was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Your Austin truck accident lawyer may also be able to add parties to your claim. For instance, investigations of the trucking company may reveal that the trucking company failed to maintain its fleet of vehicles, which contributed to the accident. The company can also be held responsible if your lawyer can prove that the drivers were overworked, fatigued, or were not subject to regular drug testing. Trucking companies can try to avoid liability for their drivers by labeling them “independent contractors” and not employees. Additionally, manufacturers of the trucks can be held liable if the accident was caused by a defective mechanism in the truck.

Every year, hundreds of pedestrians and cyclists are injured or killed by accidents in Austin. These two groups are of the most vulnerable on the streets.

Pursuing a personal injury claim against a motorist requires the expertise of an experience Austin bicycle attorney of pedestrian attorney as soon as possible.

Similarly, in a pedestrian accident, the risk of injuries and fatalities is obviously greater for the pedestrian than the driver. As more and more people take to bicycling and walking to their destinations, the possibility for pedestrian and/or bicycle accidents increases. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident of bicycle accident, it is important that you get in touch an Austin bicycle attorney or pedestrian attorney as soon as possible.

Austin Product Liability Lawyers

Product liability can be established in three ways. An Austin product liability lawyer will attempt to prove that there were (a) flaws in the product that caused injury, (b) the flaws were developed during manufacturing, or (c) there existed flaws in the advertising or labeling of the product.

Products that are defective, tainted, or otherwise dangerous, cause thousands of injuries and fatalities every year. These products include:

Food stuffs: Meat products, vegetables, cheeses and other products in recent years have been found to be contaminated with dangerous bacteria, including E Coli.

Children's products: These include lead painted toys, toys with detachable parts that can cause choking, etc.

Pharmaceuticals: These include both prescription as well as over the counter medications.

Automotive products: When auto accidents are caused by defective air bags, tires, seatbelts and other parts, the manufacturer may be held liable for any injuries that result.

Proving pharmaceutical liability can be difficult due to the intense regulations set forth by the FDA before a product can be approved for sale. Once the FDA gives its seal of approval, drug companies attempt to deflect liability for injurious products by hiding behind the FDA. If you have been injured by a pharmaceutical product, call The Law Office of David D. White, PLLC today for a free consultation.
