Houston 18-Wheeler Accident Attorneys

Large commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers play an essential role in the American economy today, as they are able to transport large amounts of goods across the country in an efficient manner. Unfortunately, their sheer size poses a significant threat to other, smaller vehicles that share the road with them. Large commercial trucks can cause significant damage and injuries to motorists when they collide with other vehicles. The potential for damage increases when 18-wheelers are operated, maintained, or manufactured by negligent individuals or companies whose concerns are more focused on profit margins instead of the safety of others on the road.

At Chandler McNulty, our Houston legal team can help you pursue financial compensation from the responsible party after a devastating 18-wheeler accident has left you reeling from injuries and property damage. We want you to know that you may have a substantial claim to compensation from the party or parties whose negligent actions caused your accident.
