Austin Truck Accident Attorney


Every day, millions of Americans travel on roads throughout the country. During these trips, it is virtually impossible to avoid sharing the road with a large truck, otherwise known as a semi-truck or 18-wheeler. While most of the time these vehicles are operated responsibly and carefully, there are far too many instances in which innocent drivers and other parties suffer devastating harm in an accident as a result of truck driver negligence, manufacturing errors, or trucking company negligence.

At the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., we devote ourselves to providing comprehensive support to truck accident victims, and we help them fight to obtain the justice and compensation they both need and deserve after an accident.

There are times when a truck collision is nothing more than an accident that simply could not have been avoided; however, there are also many cases in which a truck driver or another party acts irresponsibly, causing unsuspecting drivers to be involved in serious collisions. Because we know how devastating the effects of these accidents can be, we are committed to representing all types of truck accident victims, including but not limited to:

Do not feel as though you have to face the aftermath of a truck accident alone. Our legal team is here to help protect your interests and fight against the individuals responsible for your accident.


An accident with an 18-wheeler—a large commercial truck consisting of a tractor and trailer, typically with 18 wheels in total—is likely to have devastating consequences. Due to the immense size, weight, and power of these vehicles, collisions often result in massive damage, catastrophic injuries, and death. The lasting effects of 18-wheeler accidents on victims and their families are devastating; legally speaking, these are also some of the most complex motor vehicle accident claims.

Pursuing compensation after an 18-wheeler accident requires an exhaustive investigation into how the accident occurred, as well as what impact it has had on the victim’s life and/or the lives of victims’ loved ones. Our Austin 18-wheeler accident attorneys work with a team of accident reconstruction experts, medical professionals, and other specialists in order to determine exactly how an accident happened, who is liable, and what potential sources of compensation are available.

We represent victims of all types of 18-wheeler crashes, including:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Jackknife accidents
  • Rollovers
  • Head-on collisions
  • Intersection crashes
  • Highway accidents
  • Left- and right-hand turn impacts

We understand the serious nature of these accidents, and we are ready to fight for the full, fair recovery you are owed.


Every truck accident case is unique, and the at-fault party in your case will depend on the unique set of facts and circumstances involved the wreck. In most personal injury cases, trucking accidents are typically the result of errors committed by drivers, trucking companies, or auto part manufacturers.

Truck Drivers

Driver error is one of the leading causes of preventable truck accidents, which is why truck drivers must abide by numerous state and federal laws regarding their fitness to drive and their actions. For example, truckers must be medically cleared in order to obtain a commercial driver’s license, and they must obey laws that prevent them from posing risks to the public, including risks posed by distracted driving, driving under the influence, and violating hours of service rules, which can cause driver fatigue.

Trucking Companies

Trucking companies are responsible for the actions of their employees and for the vehicles they put onto public roadways. Like drivers, commercial carriers must also abide by many safety regulations, including keeping accurate driver logs, properly maintaining vehicles, and overseeing their employees so as to prevent negligent or unfit drivers from getting behind the wheel.

When truck drivers are pressured to complete their routes in an unreasonably short amount of time, the company may also be held financially accountable. Additionally, when trucking companies do not properly maintain their equipment, they may be held liable for any resulting malfunctions. The following additional forms of negligence may lead to serious truck accidents:

  • Hours of service violations
  • Negligent hiring
  • Failure to train
  • Failure to maintain vehicles

It is concerning that, in an effort to increase profits, some companies do not properly train drivers or provide adequate vehicle maintenance. Trucking companies are responsible for training employees as well as taking care of their property. When these standards are not upheld, people could be seriously injured.

Auto Part Manufacturers

In some trucking accident cases, a wreck may have been caused by a defective auto part, such as a defective tire, faulty airbag, or brake defects. When this is the case, victims may be able to recover compensation from the auto part manufacturer, distributor, or other party that made a defective product available to consumers.

A truck going fast on the road


There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a commercial truck to lead to an accident. There are also many different types of severe injuries that people can suffer in a truck accident. All of the variables add up to a complicated situation that cannot be taken lightly. Our attorneys know as much, which is why we use our experience and network with engineering and medical experts to thoroughly investigate our clients’ truck accident claims.

To name only a few of the things we can use in our investigation:

  • Driving records
  • Bills of lading
  • Hours of service logs
  • GPS data
  • Emergency responder reports
  • Truck maintenance schedules
  • Trucking company staff catalogs

Victims of truck accidents caused by third party negligence don’t deserve to bear the burdens of the accident entirely on their own.
