Cameras in Trucks

The Upside to Investing

     "Not one mention of a case won when a camera was used by the truck driver.

 

     In my opinion, trucking companies are considered guilty until proven innocent. 

     Prove them wrong.

     Protect your business with video evidence.

     Let's put a stop to false claims. Cameras are affordable and should be a necessary part of your growing       business.

Undefeated Texas 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyers

Our Texas 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyers have Won Over $1 Billion and recovered the largest verdicts and settlements in history on behalf of truck accident victims across Texas, Louisiana and the United States, including:

  • #1 Largest Truck Accident Settlement in Texas (2019)

  • #1 Largest Accident Verdict in Texas

  • #1 Largest Verdict in R&L Trucking Company’s corporate history

  • #1 Largest settlement in Oakley Trucking Company’s corporate history

  • #4 Largest Accident Verdict in Texas

  • 2 of the largest settlements in Texas

Trucking companies know that once our Truck Accident Lawyers are involved, their only options are to fully compensate our client for all their injuries and damages or risk a record-setting verdict at trial, where we remain undefeated.

 

We’re able to consistently win record-setting recoveries for truck and 18-wheeler accident victims because we value and understand the importance of hard work, preparation and trial experience.

Not only do we work harder and prepare longer than our opponents, but unlike at many other law firms, our Truck Accident Lawyers won’t hesitate to take a case to trial if the trucking company refuses to offer a settlement that fully compensates our clients for ALL their injuries, losses, and damages.

Because our approach consistently leads to record-setting verdicts, many of our cases are settled for record amounts before trial.

In this testimonial, our client—who won the largest verdict in R&L Trucking Company’s history—explains her experience with our truck accident lawyers and the record-recovery we obtained on her behalf.

Over $1 Billion Won and the Largest Truck and 18 Wheeler Accident Victories in History

The verdicts and settlements that our Truck Accident Lawyers have recovered for clients across Texas and the United States have consistently set records as

  • the largest in the state, and

  • the largest in the trucking company’s corporate history

$23.5 Million Settlement for Client Injured in Head-On Collision with Commercial Truck

Ryan Zehl recently obtained a $23.5 million settlement on behalf of a 34 year-old man who was severely injured after being hit head-on by a large commercial truck.

You can watch our client’s video testimonial here.

The settlement, which is the largest in Texas and the company’s corporate history, will ensure that our client receives the best medical care available and is able to care and provide for himself and his family for the rest of his life.

Largest Verdict in History Against R&L Trucking Company

Our 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers recovered the largest verdict in R&L’s corporate historyafter a 5 week trial against R&L Carriers, the largest private trucking company in the United States.  Our client was rear-ended by one of R&L’s drivers while driving on I-20, just outside of Weatherford, Texas. The impact caused her vehicle to roll-over, resulting in a head and lower back injury from the wreck.

R&L denied responsibility for the collision, offered less than $150,000 to settle the case, and called a team of over 15 experts—including neurologist, neuropsychologists, orthopedists, and accident reconstructionists—to dispute our client’s injuries and attempt to prove that the collision was a “side swipe,” rather than a rear-end collision.

After hearing the evidence, however, the jury disagreed with R&L and awarded over $4 Million, as well as punitive damages, to our client for the company’s negligence and gross negligence in failing to properly train and supervise its driver.

The verdict is the #1 Largest Verdict in R&L’s corporate history, the only case where they’ve been required to pay punitive damages, and one of the only 18 wheeler trucking cases in Texas where punitive damages have been upheld on appeal.

Largest Settlement in History Against Oakley Trucking Company

Our Truck Accident Lawyers also obtained the #1 Largest Settlement in Oakley Trucking Company’s corporate history on behalf of a client who was rear-ended by a distracted driver, which caused his pick-up truck to roll over off the highway.

Less than 12 months after filing the lawsuit, we were able to obtain a substantial settlement that will provide for him and his 4 children for the rest of their lives.

We Force Trucking Companies to Take Responsibility

Having won record-setting 18 wheeler verdicts and settlements against the biggest trucking and transportation companies in the United States, trucking companies tend to take cases much more seriously when our attorneys are involved.

Why? Because they know that we don’t hesitate to take cases to trial if the defendant doesn’t offer our client a settlement that fully compensates them for all their injuries, losses, and damages.

We Prove that the Trucking Company and its Driver Were at Fault

When we’re hired in an 18-wheeler accident case, we immediately obtain the driver’s logs and all maintenance and employment records, and send an accident reconstruction team to inspect the scene and the vehicles involved in the crash.

This evidence not only allows our Truck Accident Lawyers to determine whether the driver exceeded the maximum number of driving hours and committed other violations of Federal safety laws, but it also provides us with physical evidence that establishes how fast the truck was traveling at impact, if and when it braked, and whether the driver was fatigued or distracted at the time of impact.

We then consult with both our client’s treating doctors and our medical experts to determine the nature and severity of our client’s injuries, how their injuries can be treated, and the cost of the medical treatment that our clients will need in the future.

After obtaining this information about the crash, we work with our experts to identify the total amount of compensation needed to ensure that our clients are able to care for themselves and their families for the rest of their lives.

If the trucking company or their insurer refuses to offer a settlement that compensates our clients for all their injuries and losses, we take the case to trial—where our 18 wheeler accident attorneys remain undefeated.

Comply with federal law that bans all commercial drivers from using hand held devices. Drivers who violate the restriction can face federal civil penalties of up to $2,750 for each offense and disqualification from operating a commercial motor vehicle for multiple offenses. Commercial truck and bus companies that don’t prevent their drivers from using hand held cell phones while driving are liable for millions of dollars if “compliance processes” are not in place or effective.
