One of the most common reasons truck accidents occur is driver fatigue. Avoiding breaks and much needed sleep can result in serious injuries to you or the death of a family member. An employee of a trucking company speeding to make up time in getting from one destination to the next can have catastrophic consequences.

Rio Grande Valley Truck Accident Attorneys
At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., we understand that truck drivers sometimes feel pressure to perform beyond what they can handle. Employers are looking at a bottom line that decreases as costs increase. Other tractor-trailer operators take matters into their own hands and avoid breaks and necessary sleep. A fatigued driver behind the wheel of a powerful truck on the highways of South Texas, has dangerous and deadly consequences.
Do not speak to anyone from the insurance company following the accident. The insurer wants information and a quick settlement. Our job is to speak on your behalf and provide aggressive advocacy. We team up with experts and build claims based on the facts, reviewing log books and black box data.
Putting injured clients and grieving family members on the road to recovery starts with one phone call.
