If You've Been Hurt In a Truck Accident, Jeff Can Help
Athens, TX truck accident attorney who won't stop fighting for you
We see big trucks each and every day in Henderson County. Most of the time, we don't even think twice about them. But when you're in an accident with an 18-wheeler or another big truck, your life can change in a flash. You're left with serious injuries and medical bills you can't pay. Attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law helps the injured recover compensation.
When a semi-truck is fully loaded, it can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When it collides with a car while speeding down a highway, you can imagine the damage it can cause. Accident victims suffer serious injuries that may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take months. Some people never fully recover.
But recovering financial compensation for your injuries can be complicated. Drivers and trucking companies don't admit to doing anything wrong. Insurance companies are more concerned about protecting their profits than paying you. And they have high-powered lawyers working against you.
Experience that gets results
That's why you need a truck accident attorney who has taken on trucking companies and insurance companies and knows how to get results. Jeff Weinstein has been helping accident victims in Henderson County for more than 20 years. The big companies and their lawyer don't intimidate him. He focuses on building strong cases they can't ignore.

The first thing Jeff does is investigate your accident to find out which party's negligence caused your crash. The driver may have been texting, speeding or under the influence of alcohol. The trucking company may have given the driver an unrealistic schedule or failed to properly maintain the truck.
Jeff takes quick action to preserve evidence that is controlled by the trucking companies. This includes maintenance records, employment records, hours of service (HOS) logs and information from the truck's event data recorder (the truck's "black box"). He interviews witnesses. If needed, he consults accident reconstruction experts.
This allows him to build a strong case to hold negligent parties accountable. Jeff also determines the total damages you have suffered. For example, the medical expenses for treating your injuries - both now and in the future. You may also be eligible to recover lost wages. There may be other damages, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
If you've been hurt, Jeff can help
When insurance companies see that Jeff has built a strong case and is ready to fight them to the end, they usually agree to talk about a settlement. But he is focused on getting you the best possible outcome. Any resolution of your case has to be one that meets your needs. And if the insurance company won't negotiate, Jeff is ready to fight for you in court.
There can be multiple parties involved in a truck accident, each with their own lawyer and their own insurance company. Sorting out such a complicated case can take some time. But Jeff will guide you through every step of the legal process and keep you informed about how your case is progressing.
