Truckers are some of the most important professionals in Texas. Employers, customers and clients depend on them to deliver in day and night. And while the Lone Star State’s commercial drivers are among the best in the nation, they are often in harm’s way. Between other unsafe drivers, road hazards and vehicle failures, truckers are at regular risk of on-the-road injuries and fatalities on Texas’ 79,000 miles of roadways.
A roadway accident or collision is fraught with uncertainty. So much is at stake, including:
- Your health
- The health of others
- Vehicle damage
- The condition of your freight
- Your insurance claims
- Lost income
- Emotional distress, and much more.
If you were injured due to the negligent or hazardous actions of another driver or poorly maintained roads or highway systems, you need the best possible truck accident lawyer to help you navigate through these stressful times. You need Morgan Bourque.
WHY YOU NEED A TEXAS TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYER
Truck accident victims who suffer from serious injuries are often entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering and their medical costs. However, insurance companies and defendants will regularly challenge who was at fault and often minimize the seriousness of your injury in an effort to reduce the compensation payment you deserve.
You need an experienced truck accident lawyer to negotiate with the insurance companies, investigate the cause of the incident, obtain videos, identify witnesses, prove who was at fault and properly evaluate and present your injuries to ensure you receive maximum compensation.
Morgan Bourque is the auto accident lawyer you need.
A former prosecutor, Morgan is experienced in all types of plaintiffs and trucking injury claims. His strong track record of verdicts and favorable settlements continually demonstrate his status as one of Texas’ leading truck accident lawyers. Morgan knows that no two truck accidents are identical, and he collaborates with experts to reconstruct accident scenes, collect evidence and clearly explain to juries how roadway negligence or improper road maintenance caused your truck accident.
The National Safety Council reports that in 2015, there were 238 fatal occupational injuries related to transportation in Texas – the highest in the nation for the year. So much hangs in the balance from the moment you get behind the wheel – be it on a suburban street or a major highway. Most drivers are cautious before they’re on the road, but accidents are inevitable.
