According to federal regulations, fully-loaded big rigs are allowed to weigh up to 80,000 pounds—the same weight as a passenger train car. At that size, any speed would create enough momentum to devastate a passenger vehicle. What might be a fender bender between two cars would be life-threatening with an 18-wheeler in the mix.
Our newest client is a young woman who was, unfortunately, the victim of such a collision.
Her car was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler, causing her major injuries to her neck, back, and all over her body. We look forward to holding the truck driver accountable for his actions while helping our client get the medical care and support she needs.
Her case has been filed in Harris County, Texas.
