Truck Driver Error / Negligence

Large trucks dominate the roadways. Semi-trucks make other drivers nervous and most of us avoid driving too closely for fear on an accident. Truck drivers have a duty to control their vehicles, drive in a safe manner, and exercise extreme caution at all times to avoid an accident. When a truck driver fails to exercise proper care he/she puts others at risk and may be held liable for any injuries or damages that result. The truck driver negligence attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates provide years of courtroom experience to those families and individuals who have suffered an injury or the loss of a loved one due to a negligent truck driver.

Client Reviews
Troy's firm was recommended to me by a close friend. Once I hired Troy and his Firm, I knew I was in great hands with his extensive trial experience and attention to detail. He was always working diligently behind the scenes and answered my questions promptly. All of his staff was updated on my case, so anytime I called they knew who I was and the status of my case. I would recommend Troy to anyone in a difficult situation. Kerry
Mr. Burleson handled my case and I got a great result. He took time to explain my option and go over my case and answer all my questions. I recommend Troy Burleson! Anonymous
