The dramatic growth in truck traffic on Texas highways is one of the reasons for the increase in truck accidents. Another cause is the presence on our roads of unregulated trucks from other countries, especially those from Mexico who enter the United States under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Wherever they are from, trucks cause catastrophic injuries or death when they are involved in an accident with a car, a motorcycle, or a smaller truck. When those accidents and injuries are the result of negligence, the law provides compensation to victims or their families.
At the Texas law firm of Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our truck accident injury lawyers have the experience and the technical knowledge to handle truck accidents effectively. Since 1988, we have been helping truck accident victims obtain payment for their medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. If you have been injured or a family member killed in a truck accident, contact us today to learn if you have a case.
In our experience, 18-wheeler accidents are caused by many forms of negligence, including:
- Inexperienced and poorly trained drivers
- Excessive speed or driving too fast for road conditions
- Driver fatigue
- Poorly maintained equipment
- Tire Blowout

Our law firm works with accident reconstruction experts and other specialists to investigate truck accidents. We depose the driver, obtain the logs and maintenance records, interview the company’s training and safety supervisors, and analyze the recorders and GPS mechanisms. Our attorneys have the technical knowledge and resources to help you after a truck accident.
In addition to our work with victims of 18-wheeler wrecks, we help people injured in accidents involving rock trucks, dump trucks, and garbage trucks. We have handled cases involving tandem trailer trucks, which cause especially catastrophic wrecks because of their size.
