Houston Truck Accident Lawyer | 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyer

Undefeated Truck Accident Lawyers

Houston Truck Accident Lawyer | Houston 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyer

Truck and 18 Wheeler Accident victims across Texas and the United States come to Zehl & Associates to win.

In addition to being undefeated at trial, our Truck and Bus Accident Attorneys have won over $1 Billion for our clients, recovered the Largest Verdicts and Settlements in Texas, and consistently set records in every major case we’ve handled.

We’ve been able to achieve these unprecedented results because, unlike at many other law firms, all of our attorneys are trial lawyers, who don’t hesitate to take a case to trial when the defendant or their insurance company refuses to offer our client a settlement that compensates them for ALL their physical injuries and financial losses.

Our Commitment to our Clients is Confirmed by our Results

Although every case is different, our goal is always the same: to help our clients recover the maximum recovery possible after being seriously injured as a result of someone else’s recklessness.

The results that we’ve achieved for clients, in just the past 5 years alone, have not only distinguished Zehl & Associates as one of the leading personal injury law firms in the country, but they’ve—most importantly—improved the lives of the thousands of accident victims from across the country who we had the privilege of representing.

The following are some of the victories that our Truck and Bus Accident Attorneys have achieved for our clients in the past 5 years alone:

        $18.8 Million Verdict: after a three week trial in Dallas, Ryan Zehl and Kevin Haynes won a $18.8 million verdict against Greyhound for a client who injured her lower back in a rollover  collision.

        $5.4 Million Settlement: we obtained a $5.4 million settlement on behalf of a client who fractured bones in both legs after proving the driver had Obstructive Sleep Apnea and, as a result, should have been prohibited from driving

        $4.2 Million Verdict: we recovered $4.2 million, the largest verdict in R&L Carrier’s corporate history, on behalf of a client who injured her neck and lower back after being rear-ended by an R&L driver

       $3.4 Million Settlement: we obtained a $3.4 million settlement, the largest in Oakley Trucking Company’s corporate history, on behalf of a client who suffered back and neck injuries after being rear-ended by an Oakley driver

What our Clients Say about Zehl & Associates

A lot of law firms advertise themselves as the best.  But we think our clients should make that decision, not us.

Just click any of the links below, or go to our YouTube Page, our Client Videos page, or the Results section of our website to see what our clients say about their experiences with our lawyers and staff:

  • Ruthie Allen: recovered 3rd Largest Settlement in Texas after our lawyers obtained the first court-ordered sleep study that proved the driver had Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Tommy East: recovered the 7th Largest Settlement in Texas for Back and Neck Injuries after being rear-ended by an 18 wheeler
  • Ashley Reedy: recovered the #1 Largest Verdict in Texas ($18.8 Million) for Lower Back Injuries after rolling over in a Greyhound Bus

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations: the Foundation of Every Truck Accident Case

When drivers operate a truck or bus that weighs over 26,000 pounds, they’re required to have a Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver’s license or “CDL.”   To obtain a CDL, the driver has to undergo additional training on how to safely operate large commercial vehicles and the federal safety laws—referred to as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations—that govern all commercial drivers, as well as the trucking and bus companies that employ them.

Referred to as the “Rules of the Road,” the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are the foundation of every commercial vehicle collision.  The Regulations are designed to prevent truck and bus accidents by regulating everything from the number of hours drivers can drive and how much sleep they should receive to the physical conditions (like Obstructive Sleep Apnea) that disqualify drivers from being on the road.

Our Truck Accident Lawyers have Won the Largest Verdicts and Settlements in History against the Biggest Trucking and Bus Companies in the Country

While lots of law firms claim to be “truck accident” lawyers, most rarely, if ever, handle trucking accident cases or have never actually gone to trial against a trucking company.

The reason why 18 wheeler accident victims from across the country continue to turn to Zehl & Associates is because we’ve not only successfully handled hundreds, if not thousands, of cases against trucking companies, but we’ve also recovered the largest verdicts and settlements in history against the biggest trucking and bus companies in the United States.

For example, in just the past 5 years alone, our 18 Wheeler & Bus Accident Attorneys have recovered:

  • the #1 largest verdict ever awarded against R&L Carriers—the biggest private trucking company in the U.S.
  • the #1 largest settlement ever awarded against Oakley Trucking Company
  • the #1 largest verdict ever awarded against Greyhound Bus Lines
  • the #1 largest accident verdict in Texas, and
  • the #3 and #6 largest settlements in Texas

I hired Zehl when I was severely injured doing a Plug and Abandonment job offshore. I'm glad I did, they were incredible. They walked me through every step of the case, made sure that I got to the best doctors, and were always there for me when I was having trouble paying bills when the case was pending. I always felt that I was in good hands and well taken care of, which relieved a lot of my stress and helped put me at ease. Eric and the team at Zehl and Associates represented my best interests, I highly recommend them.

I was hesitant to file a lawsuit when I was injured at work, because I didn't know what to expect and my company kept telling me that "they were going to take care of me." But the medical bills kept piling up, I wasn't able to work and make money to support my family. Eric Allen and the staff at Zehl put me at ease about the process, kept me to up date about what was going on, and devoted all their resources to making sure that I had the money I needed to pay all my medical expenses and take care of myself and my family. I can honestly say that working with Eric, Ryan and the Zehl team was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thank you.

After I was injured at a chemical plant, I needed time to recover from my injuries and a lawyer who could stand up for me and my family against my company. Ryan Zehl was recommended to me from a coworker. Ryan worked hard to prepare my case and kept me and my family in the loop through the entire process. At the end they were able to get me a settlement that was much more than we had expected. I’d recommend Ryan and the team at Zehl to anyone who needs an injury lawyer who’s aggressive, honest and dedicated to protecting their clients.

Thanks to the hard work from Ryan and his team, a dangerous product that could have hurt thousands of people is now off the street. Even though I suffered from the lack of safety checks from this product, I am happy to have “taken the bullet”, to keep other people safe. Special thanks to Tommy Servos, who kept me informed through out the whole trial and helped me get a record recovery!

I grew up in Texas and went to work on an oil rig just like my dad did. It was a point of pride to follow in the same career path as my father, but no one warned me about the constant pending danger of being on the rig. My team and I are professionals that follow the rules and keep safety as priority number 1. But there are some factors to this job that can’t be controlled. Just like the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill, my rig suffered an explosion due to the lack of up keep and maintenance from our superiors. Ryan Zehl came to our aid to get the compensation my crew and I needed. Having a Houston personal injury attorney from back home represent us was truly a personal and eye opening experience. He truly cared about us and thanks to him, I can recover with my family and the safety precautions on the rig have never been tighter.

Husband was killed at a refinery to the lack of safety checks performed by the company he worked for. When I found out he was gone I was so devastated and scared for our family I wasn’t sure what the next step would be. At first I thought his company would do the right thing and take care of us. But was I wrong. They tried to say we could only recover worker’s comp and had no claim against the company. I hired Ryan because of their experience with plant and refinery accident cases. I was so impressed at how professional and caring Ryan and his entire team were. They would call to check on me and my kids and always made sure I had money to pay bills and get presents for my kids on there birthdays and at Christmas. I don’t know where we’d be without there help. Because of Ryan and his team, I was able to pay off the house, put a trust together for my kids to make sure they’re able to pay for college, and never have to worry about having enough money to take care of myself and the kids again. We are so grateful for everything they did for us. Thank you.

I came to Zehl Law Firm after I was injured in a car accident. They made me feel comfortable and explained things so I understood what to expect. Along with excellent communication. They were always quick to respond and update me on everything. Kelvin Hayes did a great job with my case and I would be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a auto injury lawyer.

I highly recommend Zehl Law! When I was injured on the job, I reached out to Ryan’s office and was greeted with support. I was well taken and care of and really appreciate how the law firm professionals went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. Now I can recover without having to worry about money until I am well enough to get back on the job. Thanks guys!
