Mobile device distraction has become the number one cause of deadly Big-Rig Semi-Truck accidents.  An ABC News-Odessa Investigative Report provided shocking video proof of Big-Rig Semi-Truck operators using cellphones while driving on busy Texas highways.  The report verifies that Big-Rig Semi-Truck drivers mobile device usage is rampant and at epidemic levels.  Any vehicle operator using a mobile device while driving is dangerous, but when Big-Rig Semi-Truck drivers become distracted the consequences usually result in deaths.  To make matters worse, the Big-Rig Semi-Truck distracted driver’s employers are doing absolutely nothing to stop this epidemic which they are creating.  Texas and New Mexico DPS have only a limited number of officers patrolling who are trained to investigate Big-Rig Semi-Truck operators.  Another problem is the height of the Big-Rig Semi-Trucks.  DPS troopers complain that they simply cannot see into the Big-Rig Semi-Trucks to detect mobile device use.  Amarillo’s Best Big-Rig Semi-Truck Distracted Driver Attorneys have the experience and training to protect your rights.  If you have been victimized by a Texas or New Mexico Big-Rig Semi-Truck distracted driver, call us now for a free consultation:  (806) 374-4024.

3.  How many jury trials have you “first chaired” in your career?

4.  If you are not taking cases to trial regularly, how well will you preform for me if you have to take my case before a jury?

5.  Could your lack of trial experience possibly affect the outcome of my case?

6.  Is it possible the insurance company will pay less money to me because of your jury trial inexperience?

Amarillo, Texas is one of the busiest trucking crossroads in America. Local oil & gas, cattle ranching and agricultural markets have chocked I-40 and I-27 with big-rigs. Narrow Farm-To-Market roads are the most treacherous in the United States. The result has been an increase in catastrophic accidents caused by fatigued drivers, typically working too many hours, in violation of federal laws. If your family has experienced a tragedy at the hands of the trucking industry, you need an Amarillo Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorney who knows how to fight hard for your family's rights. We have been litigating tractor-trailer accident cases for 26 years and know the tricks commonly used by trucking companies: hiding evidence; destroying black box data; altering time logs. After a tractor-trailer accident, the faulty driver's employer always sends an army of investigators to the scene to gather evidence. The problem is that they rarely preserve this evidence if it hurts their case. It's very important that you hire an experienced Amarillo Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorney and begin protecting your family's rights.

In every DWI fatality case our Amarillo DWI Accident Attorney hires a team of experts within hours of our acceptance of your case. Toxicologists, Accident Reconstructionists, Alcohol Service & Hospitality Industry Standards Experts and Economists make up most of our DWI fatality accident teams. Not all Amarillo DWI Accident Attorneys aggressively litigate like we do. We understand that police agencies are not always reliable when it comes to gathering and preserving evidence. For instance, in most criminal DWI cases the prosecutor assigned will not be concerned about proof of where the alcohol was served to the drunk-driver. It is critical that your Amarillo DWI Accident Attorney discover this information immediately through investigations. Why? Most insured bars and restaurants have security video that erase after 15-30 days. This evidence will be the best proof of the drunk-drivers demeanor prior to the accident. Black box data must be preserved by your Amarillo DWI-Accident Attorney. Witnesses need to be located and statements taken. Wrongful deaths caused by the overservice of alcohol to drunk drivers is happening everyday at many bars and restaurants in Amarillo. Why? Greed! Responsible alcohol service means lower profits. Don't remain silent on this issue! By pursuing your claim you may actually change attitudes or save a life. Our Amarillo DWI Accident Attorney understands your misery and all of the uncertainties you are attempting to confront. Let us help your family through this tragedy.

Failure to Diagnose:

If you have cancer or another serious illness, time is your most critical and significant asset. If your disease is diagnosed in time, you have options. Modern medicine offers you the optimum chance for survival or cure. Unfortunately, if your disease or illness is not diagnosed in a timely manner by your Amarillo doctors, you do not have as many treatment options.

You depend on doctors to accurately diagnose your condition the first time around. When Amarillo doctors misread test results or fail to order appropriate tests, these actions or inactions can cost lives. If you have lost a loved one due to an Amarillo doctor’s failure to diagnose an illness, or if you have suffered metastic disease secondary to an undiagnosed cancer, you need an experienced Amarillo failure to diagnose attorney on your side.

People across Amarillo and Texas have turned to failure to diagnose attorneys at Quackenbush Law Firm for strong legal representation in medical malpractice cases. We take on medical professionals who have breached their duty to their patients. We are able to handle every kind of case involving a hospital or physician’s failure to diagnose and treat a disease in a timely fashion, including:

Delayed diagnosis of cancer. When cancer is not detected early, it can spread to other parts of the body and lead to death. Our Amarillo failure to diagnose attorney serves victims of every type of cancer misdiagnosis, including breast cancer misdiagnosis.

Medical or doctor misdiagnosis. The misdiagnosis of an illness leads to delayed and ineffective treatments. Our Amarillo failure to diagnose attorney will hold doctors responsible for their negligence.

Failure to diagnose and prevent a heart attack. In too many Albany and Albuquerque emergency rooms, doctors send patients home with symptoms of a heart attack. Death is usually the result. Often there is a callous failure to perform rudimentary procedures such as serial EKG and blood enzyme analysis.

Failure to properly read X-rays and mammograms. Amarillo radiologists are trained to read and interpret X-rays. When they make mistakes, the patient loses valuable time to combat disease like breast cancer.

Misdiagnosis of appendicitis. Appendicitis is often misdiagnosed for less serious conditions like indigestion and flu. A delay in diagnosis can lead to severe medical complications requiring extensive medical treatment, or even wrongful death.

Misdiagnosis of colon cancer. Colon cancer often goes undetected before it becomes life threatening. Patients exhibiting signs of colon cancer should be screened as soon as possible and treatments including cure are possible.

Misdiagnosis of bladder cancer. When detected early, bladder cancer is often treatable. A delay in diagnosis, however, can allow the cancer to spread into the nodal system, significantly limiting the patient’s chances of survival.

Misdiagnosis of liver cancer. Liver cancer is difficult to treat even when detected early. When doctors misdiagnose this disease, it all too often results in wrongful death.

Misdiagnosis of esophageal cancer. Esophageal cancer is a rare but deadly form of cancer. Warning signs are difficulty swallowing and painful swallowing.

Misdiagnosis of lung cancer. While there is no cure to lung cancer, a timely diagnosis can significantly ease symptoms and prolong life.

In every case, our Amarillo failure to diagnose attorney will make a complete investigation of your claim and bring a lawsuit against those responsible. Our tough, aggressive approach regularly leads to favorable outcomes for our clients.

An example of birth injury to the nerves is Erb’s Palsy, affecting the brachial plexus network of the nerves on each side of the upper body. The plexus controls movement and feeling in the shoulder, arm and hand. Symptoms are numbness, weakness, and paralysis on whichever arm is damaged.
