San Antonio Truck Driver Error Attorneys
If you have fallen victim to the negligence of a truck driver, you should seek legal counsel right away and figure out a plan to obtain the justice you deserve. Truck drivers have some of the biggest responsibility when it comes to safe practices behind the wheel. Because of the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, one driver error could cause a major accident resulting in life-threatening injuries or death. The Chris Mayo Law Firm is here for you 24 hours a day seven days a week.
When we obtain drivers’ licenses, we are making an oath to practice the highest standards of safety, remain aware at all times, and take careful precautions when sharing the road with other drivers. If one is behind the wheel of any vehicle, especially a commercial vehicle, we should be able to trust that they are mindful of their actions while operating a potentially life-threatening automobile. Unfortunately, this often isn’t the case, and when that happens, call on the Chris Mayo Law Firm. Chat with us live on our website, or simply pick up the phone and give us a call at [phone-number].

Common Truck Driver Errors
Truck drivers uphold a responsibility to remain aware, cautious, clear-headed, and consistent at all times when operating a large commercial vehicle. Over the years, we have found there are some common errors that truck drivers commit that often result in severe injuries to the victims involved.
- Impaired driving: Those who choose to get behind the wheel when they are not sober-minded are putting hundreds of others’ lives at risk.
- Failing to use a blinker or wait a sufficient amount of time before changing lanes: When a driver switches lanes too abruptly or does not signal to others that are making a change, victims can be caught in the “no-zone”, or blind spot.
- Left-hand turns: It’s important for those sharing the road with large trucks to remain aware of upcoming turns and the drivers’ signals to avoid potentially colliding with one as they make a turn. Trucks tend to make wide, slow turns that can take more time than an average size vehicle, and when the driver isn’t aware of their surroundings, this could cause a collision resulting in serious consequences.

How do I prove there was a driver error?
With over 1.3 million commercial truck drivers on our roadways, driver errors can come in many forms. Our legal team will prove that the driver was negligent by showing how the driver was either distracted, miscalculating in poor weather conditions, impaired, fatigued, or unqualified to be operating that large of a vehicle. If the driver is unqualified or has expired credentials, it’s possible the corporation he or she works for could be held liable as well.
How much compensation can I expect to receive?
Every case is different, but one thing is for sure. Victims typically receive up to three times as much from insurance companies with legal representation than they would fighting the battle alone. With our help, you could get the maximum amount for recovery.
Who is responsible?
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, the driver and/or the company they work for could be held responsible. We will review your case and work with all parties necessary to determine exactly who should be held accountable for wrongdoing.
