San Antonio Highway Accident Lawyers

Houston Rear End Collision Car Accident Attorneys

Have you ever seen a large tractor trailer parked alongside of the road, on an on/off ramp, or in another location close to the flow of traffic? Parking in any of these locations may or may not be legal. But even if it is legal, truck drivers are supposed to take precautions to prevent an accident from happening.

If you have been injured in an accident because a truck was illegally parked somewhere, talk to an experienced San Antonio highway accident attorney.

At Tinsman & Sciano, we are knowledgeable about trucking laws, and what trucks can and cannot do in regard to parking. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation. Call toll free at (877) 220-0867.

Was the Truck Illegally Parked?

The first step in your case is to determine if the truck was illegally parked. We will determine what laws apply in your case, and whether the trucker or trucking company violated any of those laws.

  • In many cities, it is illegal for an 18-wheeler to park. Even if it is legal, a truck driver is required to turn on warning lights to alert other motorists of the truck's presence.
  • Trucks may be able to park in emergency lanes along high-speed highways, but they are required to put out warning signs and/or reflective triangles at certain distances to warn other drivers of their presence.
  • It is illegal for trucks to be parked alongside a highway except in emergency situations.

Illegal parking by a truck is the cause of many car/truck collisions. For more than 40 years, our firm has been representing victims of truck accidents in which a truck driver or trucking company was negligent. Learn more about our firm's approach, and other causes of truck accidents including:
