Protecting Your Rights to Compensation After Serious Truck Accidents

Waco is a hub for many corporations throughout Central Texas. These companies rely on Interstate 35 for effective transportation, hauling and distribution solutions. At Tekell & Atkins, L.L.P., we have firsthand knowledge of how Central Texas acts as a thoroughfare for 18-wheeler and semi trucks.

Our attorneys have deep roots within the Central Texas community. We have been providing personal injury strategies in Waco for more than 20 years. We understand the catastrophic emotional, financial and medical consequences associated with commercial trucking accidents.

Our lawyers can evaluate your accident and consult with industry experts to help determine and prove liability. Our goal as your personal injury attorney is to help maximize your compensation through settlement negotiations or trial, depending on your needs.

Preserve Evidence

When brought into your case early, we can help preserve critical evidence from your truck accident. Our legal team has a wealth of experience preserving, collecting and interpreting technical data.

We can help prevent evidence from being altered, deleted or lost before you file your claim. We can help obtain and preserve the trucking company's logs and files, in addition to computerized data within the truck itself.

Prove Liability

To help you receive fair compensation for your injuries, we must prove liability. Our attorneys can obtain necessary evidence to help demonstrate the nature of the negligence of the trucking company and not just the driver. This can include:

  • How long the driver was on the road.
  • The last time the truck had maintenance.
  • The speed of the driver.
  • Any substances, legal or illegal, that may have been in the driver's blood stream.
  • What time pressure the driver was under.

Insurance and Litigation Advocacy

At Tekell & Atkins, we possess sophisticated insurance and litigation experience. Our attorneys have represented insurance companies. We understand how they operate, inside and out. We can discuss your expectations and goals to help negotiate a settlement.

If a settlement is not in your best interest, we can take your case to trial. We are known in the region for our trial experience, professionalism and our extensive trial experience.
