Experienced Texas Injury Attorney Represents Trucking Accident Victims
Established law firm seeks fair compensation for clients injured in the Austin areaBecause trucks are so much heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving them are much more likely to cause debilitating injuries and death to motorists. At John de la Viña, I represent truck accident victims in the Austin area and throughout Texas. Though no amount of money can erase the pain from a truck accident injury, I can advocate for your right to receive fair compensation from the trucker or company employing him. I use targeted strategies to obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. If you have suffered the devastating loss of a family member in a trucking accident, I can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf.
Hardworking Texas attorney holds negligent truck drivers and companies accountableTruck accidents are tragic events that could often be avoided if truck drivers and the companies that employ them followed the federal regulations designed to improve truck safety. If the driver of a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicle caused your accident, John de la Viña can help you pursue justice and compensation. I take on cases involving:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- Unsafe driving conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
- Unlicensed or untrained drivers
- Truck rollovers and jackknifes
- Oversized trucks
- Overloaded trucks
- Tire blowouts
- Brake failure
- Poor truck maintenance
- Mechanical defects
Strategic lawyer builds and presents solid cases for plaintiffs
After a truck accident, trucking company personnel quickly converge on the scene to gather evidence for their defense. I match the immediacy of their response. During my investigation, I will try to preserve crucial evidence, take witness statements and photograph the scene to record skid marks and vehicle positioning.
I then employ a practical, professional approach in my effort to obtain compensation for your losses. When preparing for negotiations or trial, I may consult qualified experts who understand the impact of trucking accidents. In court, these professionals — such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, accident reconstruction analysts, and mechanics — can offer compelling testimony about your accident and resulting injuries. At John de la Viña, I will use all available means to present a strong case on your behalf.
