  • Semi Truck Wreck Accident - Keith Miller

Personal Injury

and Property Damage

We don't believe in unavoidable accidents and we don't believe in non-serious injuries. If you were injured in a car wreck, someone or something is to blame. And, if your vehicle was damaged, you have a right to seek compensation. We'll work hard to find out who was at fault and help you receive the financial compensation you need and deserve to cover medical care and property damage to your car.

Semi-Truck/18 Wheeler Accidents

Truck drivers have jobs to do just like the rest of us. But when those drivers or the companies they work for fail to prioritize safety or are negligent in some way, 18-wheeler accidents occur, and so do serious injuries.

If you’ve been injured in a semi-truck or 18-wheeler accident, you have rights, but it’s very important that you contact an experienced 18-wheeler accident attorney quickly. Big truck accident cases are complex. Since trucking companies are regulated by a federal agency these cases often involve federal records, plus, trucking companies and their insurance companies will work hard to cover their tracks or minimize their fault.

Fortunately, we’ll work even harder to get you the compensation you deserve.

Keith Miller’s background as an insurance claims adjuster showed him all the ways insurance companies try to get out of paying what’s owed to victims of 18-wheeler and semi-truck wrecks. Today, he uses that knowledge to stay one step ahead of them in order to win for his injured clients.

Sadly, many semi-truck crashes in Texas could be avoided if drivers and trucking companies followed laws and regulations. Rules written by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulate the semi-truck and 18-wheeler trucking industry, and they include:

  • Limiting the length of driving time
  • Maintaining driving logs
  • How drivers are supposed to respond to accidents
  • Keeping maintenance logs
  • How to load trucks for proper balance

In addition to not following regulations, many 18-wheeler accidents are caused by truck driver fatigue, cell phone use, improper driver training, and alcohol and drug use by truck drivers.

When these rules are broken, people get hurt. If you’ve suffered an injury in an 18-wheeler or semi-truck accident, you need an experienced accident attorney on your side. Contact the Law Office of Keith Miller today.

Important Things to Know

Don’t assume big truck drivers are looking out for you. Here are some tips for staying safe when sharing the road with 18-wheeler trucks:

  • Slow down in dangerous areas such as construction zones or narrow stretches of highway.
  • Don’t linger directly behind a big truck or in the driver and passenger side blind spots. This is the "No Zone".
  • Never follow too closely.
  • Drive defensively. If a truck driver is driving aggressively, do the smart thing and back off.
  • Always wear your seatbelt.

Property Damage Negotiation

In any type of car wreck, 18-wheeler accident or motorcycle crash there is usually property damage. For one-car families, or for those that depend on their vehicles to earn a living, this is a real hardship. It costs money to repair damaged cars, but you also lose money if you're unable to get to and from work.
