It should come as no shock that commercial truck accidents are significantly different from regular car accidents. Truck accidents not only result in more damage to your vehicle, but you may also suffer more serious or catastrophic injuries as a result of a crash. Additionally, commercial vehicles carry a different form of insurance than personal vehicles, which can make the process of recovering full and fair compensation more complex and challenging.

At Mott & Moffett LLP, we understand the gravity of the situation and the challenges victims face after a serious 18-wheeler crash, whether they live in the Houston metro area, elsewhere in Texas or out of state. We fight for the rights of our clients, making sure their stories get told and they receive the compensation they need, and we hold negligent truck drivers and trucking companies responsible for their actions or inactions either at the negotiation table or inside the courtroom.


Because of the special licenses truck drivers are required to hold and the fact that trucking companies are required to carry a different form of insurance, personal injury claims after a truck accident may require you to go up against the driver as well as their employer and their insurance company. There could even be additional factors that could bring in other defendants, such as municipalities, vehicle maintenance companies and commercial vehicle parts distributors if road-design defects, construction zone mistakes, maintenance failures or defective vehicle parts issues arise.

In addition to the potential for multi-defendant litigation, trucking companies and other business parties often employ large legal teams to defend them, which may leave you feeling like you are one against the world.

The commercial vehicle accident attorneys at Mott & Moffett LLP have decades of legal experience, both inside and outside the courtroom. They are well-versed in Houston personal injury and products liability laws, and they understand how to interpret them and apply them to achieve justice in your specific situation. They will take time to answer your questions, help you understand what’s happening with your case, and what’s at stake. They will walk you through every step of the process to ensure you receive the best possible outcome.


With Mott & Moffett LLP in your corner, you will feel like you have a fighting chance. We are a highly detail-oriented team of commercial vehicle accident lawyers who have handled numerous high-end, contentious court cases over the past two decades. We pride ourselves on listening to your story, gathering all applicable evidence and materials to support your claim and building a strong case that can withstand the scrutiny of judges, juries and opposing counsel.

We take a “never back down” approach when facing trucking companies, drivers and their insurers because we believe in seeking justice, not a quick settlement. We will work with medical experts and other accident experts to make sure we understand the full scope of your case and how your short-term and long-term needs will be impacted by the crash. We take everything into consideration, and we make sure you receive compensation to cover things like:

  • Medical expenses
  • Prescription medications
  • Emergency and reconstructive surgeries
  • Medical equipment
  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Short-term and long-term in-home care

If your loved one was killed in a truck accident, we can also seek compensation to cover funeral and burial expenses through a wrongful death claim.

While our hope is to seek fair compensation at the negotiation table, we understand that sometimes the courtroom is the optimal place to get the best possible outcome. That’s why, from the onset, we prepare every case as if it will require litigation. Our high level of preparation will benefit you whether we negotiate on your behalf or ultimately end up fighting for your maximum compensation in the courtroom.


Just like regular car accidents in Houston, commercial vehicle accident claims are subject to the two-year statute of limitations. This means that if you suspect your settlement was too low but you do not file a claim for fair compensation within this time frame, you forfeit your right to seek recovery for additional damages. Don’t leave money on the table. Let our team help.
