Trucking injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP are filing suit on behalf of a registrar for a Houston-area school district who was severely injured in a truck accident. Our client was in a T-bone crash caused by a reckless truck driver who plowed his Mack truck into her vehicle while he was running a red light. The impact was so significant that the driver’s side wheel flew off her vehicle, and all side-curtain airbags on the driver’s side deployed.
Our client was unable to drive the vehicle from the scene, and sought immediate medical care at a local hospital. She was diagnosed with facial and scalp contusions, and now lives in extreme pain with unending headaches.
Incidents like this are why we file cases against reckless truckers and trucking companies in the first place. Truck drivers and large trucking companies alike are responsible for keeping the roads safe. When a trucker is behind the wheel of their 18-wheeler, they’re responsible for an 80,000-pound machine flying at high speeds, and their conduct should reflect that fact. The defendant’s reckless truck operation may have permanent and devastating consequences for our client, which is why it’s vital that we hold the driver accountable for her medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.
We are proud to represent this school district employee and help her obtain the compensation she requires to make the long journey back to wellness.
