Thomas J. Henry’s national injury law firm has seen a flood of 18-wheeler accident victims seeking legal representation in the past six months. The firm, which was founded in 1993, is the go-to trucking accident injury firm in the state of Texas.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA, 3,964 people were killed and 95,000 people were injured in accidents with large trucks in 2013 (from the latest federal data available). Although the number of accidents involving large trucks has stayed steady over the last several years, the firm has seen more and more cases pour in.
That’s due in part to a string of multi-million dollar verdicts obtained by the firm over the last four years and in large to Thomas J. Henry’s long and consistent history of success in handling these complex cases…success that Henry attributes to two critical elements- money and experience.
“I have the money to go up against these companies,” Thomas J. Henry stated. “Developing an 18-wheeler accident case means going up against big money trucking companies and insurance carriers. These companies have teams of lawyers and unlimited money and resources to fight long and hard. If you hope to win, you need an attorney who has the same. A firm with 10-12 attorneys just won’t cut it. I have nearly 100 attorneys ready to fight.”
Some would say there’s even an inherent benefit to just having the name Thomas J. Henry behind you when coming to the negotiating table. “The name Thomas J. Henry means something to these insurance companies. They know who we are and how we operate. Clients who come from other firms will tell you- insurance companies treat you differently when you are represented by me.”
When your attorney is known for jury verdicts that break national records- it can deter the insurance company from going to trial at all. “Many times we don’t even have to go all the way to trial. The defense attorneys don’t want to risk it and choose to avoid the courtroom altogether. This means they are forced to make a reasonable offer earlier, saving my clients time and the emotional energy of a drawn out trial.”
Thomas J. Henry continues to represent 18-wheeler accident victims throughout Texas and the United States. The firm was recently recognized by Newsweek.com as a Premiere Law Firm of 2016 and was named among Texas’ Top Rated Law Firms of 2016 by Legal Leaders (an ALM company).
