When a commercial truck collides with a passenger car, the weight difference causes havoc on the passenger vehicle.
If the passengers are lucky, they get out with minor injuries. Frequently, survivors aren’t that lucky. Sometimes they aren’t even survivors.

In a collision with passenger vehicles, only the drivers and their insurance companies get involved.
Commercial vehicle accidents are more complicated, and there can be several at-fault parties that may be required to pay compensation:
As always, the driver of the truck may be at fault. Commercial drivers have federal regulations guiding how, when, and where they drive, though. Should he have violated those regulations, you can collect compensation.
The company that employs the driver may be responsible, in part, for your accident. If they didn’t hire a qualified driver or hired a driver with a checkered record, you may be entitled to compensation from them.
If a mechanical failure caused your accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the maintenance company that services the vehicle. Though not common, they may be fully or partially at fault for causing the accident.
State and federal regulations govern commercial truckers and the companies that employ them. Should they have violated any of those regulations, they may be at fault for your accident. Contact Biggs & Greenslade today, and let us help you find the person responsible for your accident.
If you sustained injuries in your accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party. Biggs & Greenslade will ensure that your medical expenses are covered at no cost to you.
In all likelihood, your vehicle is damaged after a collision with a commercial vehicle. You’re entitled to compensation for that property damage, and we’ll fight to get it.
If you suffered an injury, you may have missed work while recovering. You’re entitled to compensation for the wages you lost recovering and any you may lose in the future.
Occasionally judges and juries award plaintiffs compensation for the physical and emotional pain and suffering their injury caused them. We’ll fight to get you that compensation.
Disfigurement and disability can change the course of your life and prevent you from working. Biggs & Greenslade will fight for compensation to secure your future.
If you lost a parent, child, or spouse in a commercial vehicle accident, the State of Texas allows you to file a wrongful death lawsuit to pursue compensation for their loss.
A wrongful death lawsuit can provide you compensation for loss of wages, inheritance, comfort, and services. Biggs & Greenslade has helped dozens of East Texas find closure and justice for the loss of their loved ones.
