Seeking Damages, Protecting Rights for Truck Crash Victims

If you are involved in a commercial vehicle accident, it's in your best interest not to talk to anyone at the trucking company. Including its investigators, its insurance company, any of its employees, or its lawyers. Trucking companies will aggressively fight 18-wheeler large truck claims and will try to get a statement from you that they can use to fight your case against them. At Abogado Ruiz Law Firm, PLLC, we are highly skilled at representation for collisions involving trucks. Trucking companies will use every trick in their book, including destroying the black box, driver’s logs, GPS data, and possibly the truck if they think the evidence will hurt their case. You must get an experienced truck accident lawyer working on your case immediately after the wreck to prevent the trucking company from destroying evidence that could be used against them. Attorney Ruiz handles 18-wheeler crashes and a wide range of personal injury cases.

Vital Legal Action for Commercial
Truck Collisions

A crash with a commercial truck is unique to other vehicle accidents. You are dealing with a trucking company or a business or corporation that employs its own drivers. The company could be liable for any damages done to your vehicle or your person, if the driver was careless.

When you contact truck accident lawyer Ruiz about your collision, he and his staff go to work for you right away taking time-critical actions such as:

  • Sending notice letters to the trucking company demanding that all evidence be preserved
  • Running a complete background and criminal history of the truck driver
  • Investigating the trucking company’s insurance, licenses and safety records.

And all of this is done at no cost to you.

If you are involved in a truck accident, there are steps you can take to ensure you have the necessary evidence. Just call us at (713) 234-7894, attorney Ruiz is ready to help you recover maximum compensation for the harm you've suffered.

Getting Properly Compensated for Your Injuries

If you were injured or a family member was killed in a crash caused by a truck driver, the Ruiz Law Firm, PLLC, can help you get the restitution you deserve. Truck drivers can be held legally liable for any injuries that result from a violation of state or federal safety regulations and for any injuries that occur as a result of unsafe or careless driving.

The truck driver isn’t the only one who may be required to pay damages, as trucking companies are liable for the actions of employees on the job as well as for any negligence in their policies such as a failure to properly train drivers.

You may also be eligible to file lawsuits against: the company that leased the truck, the manufacturer of the truck and/or trailer, the company that services the truck, and more. But you may need a competent truck accident attorney to fight for you in order to properly assess and establish your claim.

Whether you take action against the driver, the trucking company or other responsible parties, the Abogado Ruiz Law Firm, PLLC, can help you get compensated for:

  • Medical costs, including any necessary future medical expenses
  • Lost income if absence from work or reduction in earning ability results from injuries
  • Emotional distress/mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Deprivation of the benefits of a family relationship due to injuries
  • The wrongful death of an immediate family member
  • Future earnings of a deceased spouse
  • Damages to your vehicle or another property

Whatever the circumstances, truck accident lawyer Ruiz can help evaluate what your case may be worth and will fight to ensure you get the full amount of money you deserve. He understands how much is at stake when you suffer truck accident losses.
