Protecting Your Rights After A Truck Wreck
Getting into an accident with a large tractor trailer or semi truck can result in serious injuries and even death. This can be a devastating situation for you and your family, but help is available. At Franklin Law Firm, PLLC, attorney Tanner Franklin is on your side after a truck wreck.
At the East Texas firm, attorney Franklin is aggressive in his pursuit of justice and compensation on your behalf.

He is fully committed to holding the negligent parties responsible and getting you the money to which you may be entitled for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
Catastrophic Injuries And Wrongful Death
Due to the sheer size and weight of these large trucks and the high rate of speed at which they are frequently traveling, the injuries resulting from a truck wreck are often extremely serious. Attorney Franklin provides representation to individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), concussions and open head wounds
- Spinal cord injuries, paralysis and nerve damage
- Broken bones and crushed bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Limb amputations
- Severe burns from fire or chemicals
- Serious lacerations and abrasions
In some cases, a truck wreck may be fatal. These situations are life-changing for the surviving family members and loved ones. While Mr. Franklin understands that nothing can bring the victim back, he also knows it may be possible to seek compensation for the loss. This can help lessen the financial impact so that you can begin to recover and move forward.
Causes Of Truck Wrecks
There are many different reasons that truck wrecks occur. Driver negligence (including speeding, falling asleep at the wheel and drug or alcohol abuse); unbalanced, overweight or unsecured cargo; and improper truck maintenance are just some of the common causes of truck wrecks.
Attorney Franklin thoroughly investigates your case to determine what caused the accident and who is at fault so that they can be held responsible for the injuries and damages they have caused.
