Trucking Accidents

Big trucks carry big consequences

An auto accident involving a large commercial vehicle may involve catastrophic injuries or death. Time is critical after a truck crash, and the legal team at Horton & Mendez will act swiftly to investigate the accident and preserve evidence that may be crucial to receiving the compensation you deserve.  

 Many commercial trucks are equipped with sophisticated GPS systems and dash cameras that record every detail of an accident. Some vehicles also include an electronic control module or “black box,” that maintains crucial information regarding the truck's speed, direction, and other useful information. Whether the driver or trucking company has complied with all the licensing, training, and hours restrictions can also be important evidence in a trucking accident case.

 The sooner you contact an attorney at Horton & Mendez, the sooner we can act to secure evidence and begin a prompt investigation into the cause of the accident.
