Austin Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Collisions Involving Delivery Trucks and Other Large Trucks
Delivery drivers tend to be in a hurry. They often pull out or turn abruptly. They may exceed the speed limit or take liberties at intersections to make up time. They may be distracted by cell phones, two-way radios or GPS units. Those impatient and aggressive truck drivers forget that their heavy vehicles have the potential to cause massive harm.

With offices in Austin and Tyler, we have handled truck accident cases throughout East Texas and statewide.

Austin Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyers
We have handled complex, multi-vehicle wrecks involving tractor-trailers, so we are well equipped to investigate any truck accident to establish the negligence. We are familiar with the unique liability and insurance issues involving fleet trucks and other commercial vehicles, especially when separate entities owned the truck, employed the driver and/or loaded the truck.
We can handle any commercial vehicle accident, including:
- Package delivery trucks (FedEx, UPS, etc.)
- Freight trucks and flatbeds
- Furniture trucks and moving vans
- Dump trucks, cement mixers and construction vehicles
- Tow trucks, utility trucks or garbage trucks
- Pizza delivery vehicles
- Limousines, taxi vans and shuttles
Our accomplished trial lawyers, Paul Colley Jr. and Paul Colley, Jr., know what questions to ask in overseeing a prompt and thorough accident investigation. We have the financial resources to bring in accident reconstructionists and other experts as necessary to help establish liability. Our team is skilled at identifying the negligence, whether it was error or distraction on the part of the driver, fatigue from too many hours behind the wheel, or negligence on the part of the employer/truck owner in neglected maintenance or improper loading. We also examine whether the driver was even qualified to be driving a commercial vehicle. Did he or she have a CDL license? Appropriate training? Criminal convictions or serious traffic offenses?
