The state of Texas has more semis on its streets and highways at any given time than is the case with other states in the country. This partially is the case because of the state’s involvement in North American and Mexican commercial truck transport and the proximity of Texas to a national border. Due to the high number of big rigs on Texas roads at any juncture in time, the risk of semi-truck accidents tends to outpace when can and does happen in other states. If you have found yourself injured in a Galveston semi-truck accident you must have the type of representation provided by the legal team at The Doan Law Firm. You can reach a capable, experienced, dedicated Galveston semi-truck accident lawyer by calling out firm at (409) 206-0000.

  • Impaired semi driver
  • Intoxicated commercial truck driver
  • Poorly trained semi-truck driver

When a Texas Semi Accident Lawsuit Must be Filed

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Galveston semi accident, you need to assert your important rights with all deliberate speed. You need to understand that Texas law limits the time available to you in which you can file a semi-truck accident lawsuit.

If you miss that deadline, you may be prevented from ever seeking justice, accountable, and compensation in your case.
