Trucks, Trucks, and More Trucks
Accidents with dump trucks, garbage trucks, gasoline trucks, landscaping trucks, and armored trucks can all cause serious injuries. Southeast Texas—from Houston to Beaumont, Huntsville to Galveston, Sealy to Baytown—is one of America’s busiest corridors for commercial truck traffic. Accidents involving 18-wheelers can result in serious injuries and even death. An 80,000 pound truck causes tremendous damage to vehicles and people when involved in a collision. If you are involved in an accident with a big rig truck or other commercial vehicle, you need an experienced attorney to assist you—and Steve Lee is that attorney.
Thousands of trucks travel Texas highways every day. Factor in the size and weight of a tractor-trailer or other oversized vehicle, and a collision can easily result in serious injuries or even death.

Special Laws Apply for Commercial Truck Accidents
Commercial trucking is regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. If you or your family has been injured in a collision with a interstate or intrastate commercial truck, you need someone who understands the state and federal laws which apply to these situations to help you! Driving records, log books, and information on prior accidents are all important elements of the investigation, and those records need to be obtained as soon as possible after an accident occurs. If you need help today, Steve Lee is ready to meet with you, explain your rights, and get you the help you and your family need right now.
Commercial trucks are required to carry a minimum of $500,000 to $1,000,000 in liability coverage. The insurance companies and trucking companies want to pay as little as possible when claims are filed against the trucking company and their driver. They will try to delay or deny giving you a fair settlement. If you need help getting access to proper medical treatment, CALL STEVE LEE today. If you have questions, the experienced team at attorney Steve Lee’s office can answer your questions, explain your rights and put you on the right track! The longer you wait to get help from an experienced attorney, the more likely you will not get the full compensation you and your family deserve.
Trucks That Mangle and Kill
Broken bones, head injuries, broken ribs, and serious neck and back injuries which require surgery are all common results when someone is involved in an accident with a truck. If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury or even death, you need an experienced lawyer on your side as soon as possible. DO NOT WAIT! Insurance companies do not want to pay claims, and you need someone to help the insurance company understand the serious nature of your situation.
Factor in the dangers of the size and weight of a tractor-trailer, and it is no wonder that accidents involving semi-trucks are among the most deadly on the road. One out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision. The vehicles are monsters of the road and can do enormous amounts of damage. An 18-wheeler traveling at 70 miles per hour has twice as much energy as one at 50 mph.
Half a million trucking accidents occur every year in the United States! If you or your family are involved in a trucking accident, contact STEVE LEE TODAY at 713.921.4171 or 800.232.3711.
