Leading TX Trucking Lawyer Expands Services For Victims Of 18 Wheeler Accidents

December 06, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Inver Grove Heights, MN based McEwen & Kestner, PLLC is proud to announce that they have extended their services to cover 18 Wheeler Accidents in Texas. This development follows their decision to cover truck accidents earlier this year. The trucking lawyers handle 18 wheeler accidents throughout Texas and other states. They have the expertise and the experience required to give their clients the very best advice. With the firm’s guidance, clients can ensure that they get the best outcome for their unfortunate situation.

Pete Kestner from McEwen & Kestner, PLLC says, “After being involved in a truck accident, there are several steps that need to be taken in order to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for injuries sustained in the crash. In Texas, you can only recover damages if you are under 50% at fault for the crash under the proportionate responsibility law. All too often, those injured in a crash involving an 18 Wheeler lose out, causing pain and suffering not only for themselves but for their entire family as well as others who depend upon them.”

Houston, due to its location and sheer volume of traffic, is often in the news for yet another 18 wheeler accident. Anyone looking for a Houston 18 wheeler accident lawyer can now call the firm directly from their new website at their earliest convenience. They are available to speak to anyone involved in an accident 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and a free consultation is offered to those in need. Due to their considerable size and weight, trucks can pose a larger threat to safety while operating alongside other motorists, as even small errors can lead to serious damage to smaller vehicles and their occupants.

The first step the firm recommends to anyone involved in a truck accident in Texas is to engage a Texas truck accident lawyer. The two highest causes of truck accidents are driver error or mechanical failures, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In addition to inexperienced driving, driver fatigue, cell phone use, texting, distractions and intoxication are some of the key reasons why driver errors are the most common source of accidents involving a truck.

Across the US, there is a shortage of experienced 18 wheeler truck drivers, compounded by the fact that thousands of truck drivers lost their jobs in 2019 after a highly profitable year in 2018. Trucking company bankruptcies tripled in the first half of 2019 (with around 640 going bankrupt). Some drivers have also had their trucks repossessed after missing a single payment due to the downturn and race to the bottom on trucking rates.

Another key aspect for anyone involved in an 18 wheeler trucking accident to realize that the truck driver’s insurance will try to make contact with anyone involved in an accident to ask questions. It is important to remember that they are not on the side of the victim. Their purpose is often to minimize their costs by providing a quick settlement—or to get away with not paying anything at all. Anyone being pressured to release their medical records or getting random calls to ascertain their fitness and recovery should simply end the call and phone their trucking lawyer.

Given that trucking injury cases can be complicated in nature, any individual involved in one needs to engage a knowledgeable and experienced Texas truck accident lawyer. McEwen & Kestner, also known as The Trucking Lawyers, are the best truck accident attorneys for 18 wheeler accidents in the state. With a dedicated personal injury lawyer at their side, their clients get the most out of their time in court or in settlement discussions.

Kestner continues, "Regardless of the reasons why any truck accident has occurred, insurance providers are meant to handle them so that the victims are fully compensated for their losses. That is rarely the case, however. We know you need a strong advocate who understands how to provide the information to ensure that you get a fair assessment under the Texas proportionate responsibility law. We are the ones who will be there to make sure that everyone impacted is compensated fairly and justly. Insurance companies will often neglect to cover things like subsequent medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, loss of income, and the emotional strain on those injured and the rest of their families."

Those involved in an 18 wheeler or any kind of truck accident are encouraged to take advantage of the firm’s extensive expertise dealing with any kind of trucking accident, and either speak to them directly or request a free evaluation through their website. Interested parties can learn more about the trucking lawyers and their services by contacting Pete Kestner directly as well.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 18, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jan 18, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
