Experienced 18 Wheeler accident attorney shadow

18 Wheeler Accidents

With the thriving economy of Texas, our roads and highways have become more and more congested. With the commercial centers of Houston to the south and Dallas to the east, East Texas has become a major trucking corridor. These factors make our highways a potentially dangerous place for passenger cars to share the road with trucks.

Since 1997, Matthew R. Patton, IV, has been successfully representing truck accident victims. Contact us immediately if a loved one was injured or killed in an 18-wheeler wreck or other truck collision. We take cases in Gregg, Harrison, Smith, Upshur and the surrounding areas of East Texas.

Tractor-Trailer and Truck Accidents

There are two challenges in representing victims of trucking accidents — establishing liability and proving damages. Matthew R. Patton, IV, brings the focused experience, financial resources and access to experts to meet the challenge.

Important evidence to obtain early in the claim process are:
  • Truck driver fatigue from too many hours at the wheel
  • Trucker error or inexperience
  • Overloaded or unsecured freight
  • Poor truck maintenance

The aftermath of a truck accident tends to be severe, including permanent injuries or death. We work with your doctors and rehab specialists to document a claim to cover future needs, the economic impact, and pain and suffering.
