Truck Accidents

Accidents involving trucks often result in severe injuries or fatalities. Weighing in at up to 40 tons — dwarfing the average one- to two-ton car — tractor-trailers require longer stopping distances and are far less maneuverable than cars or SUVs. Lapses in proper truck maintenance can aggravate the danger to others on the road.

Additionally, truck drivers are often under pressure to cover significant mileage. Long hours behind the wheel can lead to fatigue and inattention, which in turn can lead to tragic accidents. Distraction is also a huge problem facing all drivers today, including commercial vehicle operators.

Experienced Advocacy For Injury Victims In Truck Accident Cases

Following a serious truck accident, you need a strong advocate to protect your rights and help you pursue justice. I am Carl Knickerbocker, a personal injury attorney handling semi-accidents, delivery truck accidents and other types of commercial vehicle accidents throughout the Williamson County area. I understand the immense hardship you are facing following a serious or fatal motor vehicle accident. You can count on me to handle the legal and insurance issues so you can focus on recovering.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation to cover the costs of your medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Exemplary (punitive) damages may also be available in certain situations. I will work diligently to help you explore all avenues for recovery.

Persistence | Dedication | Passion

Truck accident cases are often more complex than those involving passenger vehicles. Numerous parties besides the truck driver may also be liable. For example, the trucking company, the driver's employer, the owner of the trailer and the truck manufacturer could all be possible defendants in a personal injury claim. The insurance issues in these cases can also become extraordinarily complicated.

Equipped with extensive experience in the personal injury field, I will bring high levels of dedication, energy and innovation to your case. My opponents have given me the nickname The Boar for my fierce persistence in pursuit of justice for my clients. You can get that same level of unwavering devotion and aggressive advocacy.
