What to Consider When Hiring a San Antonio Truck Accident Attorney
The first thing you need to understand when pursuing compensation for a San Antonio truck accident is that the playing field is not level.
In Texas, there is a lot of money to be made in commercial trucking and these trucks are considered “commercial vehicles.” As such, large trucking companies typically employ teams of attorneys whose sole job is to protect company’s interest. In the event of a trucking accident, that means limiting or eliminating the trucking company or other parties’ liability for your injuries.
These entities also have the financial resources to fight long, hard legal battles in a way that leaves individuals at a disadvantage. This disadvantage is further complicated by the existence of complex trucking regulations as well as state and federal laws defining employer liability and the application of respondeat superior.
If you want to win your case, you need a firm with the resources and experience to take on large companies and corporations.

Common Causes of San Antonio Truck Accidents
Just like car accidents, truck accidents can have a variety of causes and a single crash may involve multiple instances of negligence. A successful San Antonio truck accident lawyer will be able to identify all causes as well as understand how Texas laws and San Antonio city ordinances may affect the value of your claim.
Some questions your attorney may consider when investigating potential accident causes and developing your case are:
- Is the truck driver properly licensed?
- Was the truck driver distracted at the time of the accident?
- Was the truck driver drowsy when the accident occurred?
- Did the truck driver exceed the driver hour limit allotted by law?
- Was the truck driver in compliance with the sleeper berth provision?
- Did the truck driver accurately log his or her hours?
- Was the truck properly maintained?
- Was the truck driver speeding?
- Was the truck driving erratically in a construction zone?
- Was there a defective or recalled part on the truck that could have contributed to the crash?
- Could passenger distraction have contributed to the crash?
When seeking to answer these questions, your attorney may opt to bring in an expert witness. Expert witnesses are industry experts with specialized knowledge of trucking accidents and commercial trucking regulations. They can help establish fault and prove your damages in court.
