Due to its proximity to Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels, a great deal of commercial truck traffic flows through Canyon Lake. Unfortunately, the higher the number of trucks on the roads, the greater the number of truck accidents. In 2017 alone, nearly 200 crashes involving commercial motor vehicles occurred in Comal County, the Texas Department of Transportation reports.
For more than a quarter century, the attorneys of Burch Law Firm have protected the rights of those who have suffered catastrophic – and costly – injuries due to the careless and reckless actions of truckers and trucking companies who cause these accidents. We know how victims and their families can easily get overwhelmed by the medical expenses, lost wages and other harm which these crashes cause. That is why our truck accident attorneys work directly with clients to address their issues and pursue the maximum amount of compensation for them.

You will speak with an attorney – not a staff member – who will review your crash in a free consultation and explore all of your legal options. If we agree to work together, we will begin an immediate investigation.
Why Do You Need to Investigate a Canyon Lake Truck Accident Right Away?
In most tractor-trailer accidents, the drivers and passengers in the other cars suffer the more severe injuries. An 18-wheeler weighing 80,000 pounds simply dwarfs a much smaller and lighter passenger vehicle. Because of the severity of damage that a tractor-trailer causes, the trucker, trucking company and their insurers know the stakes are high. They act quickly and aggressively to protect their interests after a crash. You need an experienced Canyon Lake truck accident lawyer to do the same for you.
At Burch Law Firm, we will quickly act to preserve, gather and analyze evidence that will help us to determine why your truck accident happened and identify who is to blame for it. That evidence may include:
- Photos from the accident scene (and video if available)
- Inspections of the tractor-trailer and all other vehicles involved
- GPS data
- Electronic data recorder (EDR, or “black box”) data
- Cell phone records
- Breathe, blood or urine test results
- Driver logbooks
- Inspection and maintenance records
- Bills of lading and other shipping documents
- Witness statements.
Our legal team will take all necessary steps, including seeking court orders, so we ensure that we have a complete picture of the tractor-trailer crash and its effect on your life and the lives of your family members.
