The Daspit Law Firm recently filed a personal injury claim on behalf of a local truck driver who was injured when a distracted driver caused his 18-wheeler to crash into our client's truck. The case proves just how dangerous distracted driving can be, especially when the distracted driver is behind the wheel of a massive commercial tractor-trailer.
Our client, who is a truck driver himself, was involved in an accident with another commercial truck in the Texas Hill Country. The other truck driver was using his cell phone to look for directions, and as a result, hit our client's 18-wheeler. Our client suffered serious injuries. The other truck driver received a citation for using his cell phone while driving. The case was filed in Bexar County.
Our team of personal injury lawyers is committed to securing full and fair compensation on behalf of our client, as this accident was entirely preventable. We are alleging that the other truck driver's negligent act of using his cell phone while on the road – which any reasonable driver should know is extremely dangerous – more likely than not caused the accident that injured our client.
At the Daspit Law Firm, we represent victims and families who suffer harm through no fault of their own. We routinely represent clients injured in auto accidents caused by distracted drivers, including those who text while driving. By pursuing this claim, we aim not only to recover damages on behalf of our client, but also send a clear message to all drivers on the road that distracted driving places others at serious risk.
