Any time a smaller passenger vehicle, such as a car, pickup truck or SUV gets into a collision with a big commercial truck, the results can be devastating. That’s because a fully loaded tractor-trailer typically weighs around 80,000 pounds, compared to the average car, which usually weighs around 5,000 pounds.
If you were injured or a loved one died in a crash with an 18-wheeler, trying to recover compensation for your damages can be extremely difficult. That’s because there are often multiple parties that can be held liable, such as the trucker, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, a broker, or another driver who may have contributed to the crash.
There’s often a lot at stake in cases involving truck accidents because trucking companies typically carry high-limit insurance policies, which is just one reason why they usually have teams of attorneys ready to protect their best interests. You’re at a big disadvantage if you try to fight against a large trucking company on your own, but you can even the odds by letting an experienced McAllen truck accident attorney represent you.

- A third party (e.g., another driver involved in the truck wreck)

Karam Jr. and his dedicated legal team can handle every aspect of your claim and fight to get you every dollar you deserve.
