Injured In A Truck Wreck? We Can Help No Matter Where It Occurred.
When an 18-wheeler accidents (wreck) happens, catastrophic injuries and death often occur and lives are forever changed. It’s a sad and all to often part of our daily lives to see or hear about a fatal truck wreck that has happened. But, these situations are entirely preventable. Trucking companies have special rules and regulations they are required to follow that are designed to protect the motoring public and prevent these wrecks from occurring. Unfortunately, many trucking companies ignore these regulations and put profits over safety. The result is you and I pay, regardless of whether or not we are actually involved in a wreck with an 18-wheeler. And, for the families of those whose lives are tragically cut short or catastrophically injured, the loss is unimaginable. The insurance carriers representing these companies are not on your side.

Truck Accidents FAQs
Nothing. We do not charge for case evaluation. And, if we believe you have a viable claim, you do not pay us a retainer and we do not charge by the hour. We are only paid if we recover money for you.
Do I have to get the police report or my medical records before calling or meeting with an attorney?
No. We can get the police report and your medical records. We pay the expenses of obtaining those items and you do not reimburse us unless we recover money for you. Of course, if you have the police report or medical records, please bring them with you or send them to us.
Yes. In Texas, its called “loss of earning capacity.” If a wreck impairs your ability to earn the wages you are capable of earning, you can recover the earnings you lost from the time of the wreck through the rest of your work life expectancy. At CMZ, we hire experts in the field of vocational rehabilitation to evaluate your ability to work and economists to project your losses over your lifetime.
Yes. Please give us a call and we will set up a meeting at a time and location that is convenient for you.
If the other side’s insurance carrier wants to record your statement, the answer is no. If your insurance carrier wants to record your statement, you may need to do that. But, you should talk to an attorney before you do.
I was driving the 18-wheeler involved in the wreck and I was injured, do you represent truck drivers too?
Yes. Even though you are in a large vehicle, it does not mean you cannot be hurt. Sometimes, injuries to truck drivers are made worse, or even fatal, due to lack of safety features on big trucks. Call us and let us help you.
