An early morning 18-wheeler accident has left one women dead and and her husband seriously injured. An 18-wheeler slammed into the vehicle on LBJ Freeway while the couple had pulled over on the shoulder to fix a flat tire. The driver of the big rig claimed he didn’t see the car in time to stop from plowing into the back of it.
If you have been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, my advice is to discuss your situation with a board certified attorney. The destruction caused by an 18-wheeler is vastly greater than what is typical of a passenger car accident. Because of this, 18-wheeler insurance policies are generally valued at 50 times those of you or me.
The insurance company knows that there is a lot of money at stake here, and they will do everything in their power to minimize their losses.
