Experienced Trucking Company Liability Attorneys in Houston, Texas
At Charles J. Argento, our Houston truck accident attorney knows that there is often more than one negligent party liable for commercial vehicle collisions in Texas.
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of truck accidents on our Texas roadways, or across the nation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 11% of all motor vehicle crashes in the country last year involved an oversized truck.
When dangerous truck collisions occur in Texas, our dedicated skilled personal injury attorney in Harris County provides the legal knowledge and resources our clients need to pursue the liable party for damages.
In many cases, that liable party is the trucking company, which makes it more difficult for injury victims to pursue their injury cases without an experienced truck accident attorney by their side.
That is why we are here.
Contact our skilled Houston personal injury lawyer today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your truck accident case, so we can aggressively pursue the trucking company for your full financial recovery.
WHEN IS A TRUCKING COMPANY LIABLE FOR A SEMI-TRUCK CRASH IN HOUSTON, TEXAS?
Because of the size of Texas, and the nature of our state’s economy, including agriculture, mining, energy, and construction, truck traffic is prevalent from border to border, making commercial vehicle accidents, injuries, and fatalities common.
The truck driver is the first line of defense in avoiding truck accidents in Houston.
However, the trucking company carries a much larger responsibility to ensure their drivers are qualified and experienced enough to safely drive a truck that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds.
When they are negligent in their duties, the trucking company could be liable for the collision and any damages that result from the crash.
Common examples of trucking company liability in Houston truck accidents may include, but is not limited to:
- Failing to conduct a federally required background check on the truck driver
- Failing to confirm the truck driver’s valid Commercial Driver’s License
- Hiring a truck driver who is unfit to drive a large commercial truck
- Negligently hiring an unqualified employee
- Failing to properly train employees
- Failing to properly service the truck’s brakes, tires, or other parts
- Failing to perform routine maintenance on the truck
- Demanding unrealistic delivery schedules that force truck drivers to forego sleep, speed to the next delivery, or pick up location
- Forcing truck drivers to break the law by surpassing hours of service regulations
To pursue the trucking company for our client’s financial recovery requires legally gaining access to their employment records, the truck driver’s logbooks and CDL records, and other documents that will help build their case for success.
If you have been injured in a truck accident in Houston, do not attempt to take on the liable person, parties, their insurance representatives, or attorneys alone.
We can help determine the cause of your crash and aggressively pursue the negligent party, including the trucking company, for your full financial recovery.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON HOUSTON TRUCK ACCIDENT INJURIES?
When our Houston truck accident clients are hurt in a collision with a commercial vehicle, their injuries are often more severe than those that occur in a passenger vehicle collision.
That is because semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and when the force of such a large vehicle collides with a much smaller car, truck, or SUV, it is the passenger vehicle’s occupants who are injured or killed nearly 75% of the time.
Some of the most common injuries that occur during Semi-Truck accidents in Houston include:
- Broken or Crushed Bones
- Neck and Spine Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Internal Bleeding
