The goal of a truck accident lawyer is to try and reach a settlement for the person who is responsible for any injuries you may have experienced. If you have been in a truck accident then you may have disfigurement, loss of earnings, physical limitations, medical costs, and pain. If you experienced an accident in your personal motor vehicle, then you may find that you are never able to recover from your loss. Commercial vehicles have a much bigger policies and therefore tend to be much more protected in terms of vehicular damages. When you come to us, we will fight by your side to make sure that you get the compensation you need to not only cover your current losses but also your future loss as well as legal expenses.
Collisions with large vehicles can often have disastrous results. The results are usually far worse than having high medical bills. It is not uncommon for truck accidents to cause fatalities. If someone you know has passed away as the result of a truck accident in Texas, then you may be able to recoup various financial expenses. Some of them include burial expenses, loss of financial aid, loss of maintenance and advice, loss of comfort and even inheritance. It is also possible for you to recover any medical expenses prior to the accident, as well as getting payment for your mental anguish.
If you are injured in a truck accident, then the truck driver may well be liable for your injuries. If you want to find out which injuries are most commonly associated with truck accidents, then the only thing that you have to do is look below.
If you have a head or a brain injury, then this can have a long-lasting effect on your body. Head injuries can be as mild as a concussion, or they can be traumatic. Truck accidents that cause severe injury can be life-altering.
Truck accidents can cause a lot of blunt-force trauma, and this can easily shatter your bones. It can leave the driver, as well as any passengers with trauma that is likely to be very severe.
Legs, arms, and feet can be injured to the point of amputation, especially in catastrophic accidents. They may be crushed or severely burnt.
Burns are very common with commercial truck accidents. Trucks tend to be quite big, and they can cause a lot of damage on impact. You have the bigger fuel tank too and this can increase the chances of the vehicle rupturing and causing a fire.
If you want to get the best result out of your truck accident claims, then it is so important that you take the time to prove fault. We can help you to do this, by working by your side to make sure that you have all of the evidence you need to pursue your case. In a lot of cases, accidents with truck drivers tend to be the result of the person driving the commercial vehicle. It may be that they:
Of course, it is important to know that it is not always the driver who is to blame. Sometimes the truck company is to blame. It may be that the company have set unworkable delivery times or that they have not taught the driver how to drive safely. They could well have delayed replacing certain parts for the truck, which can include key mechanical items, tires, and more. Other causes of accidents include the company not performing a diagnostical check for the inspection or forcing the driver to be on the road longer than they should be. Proving liability when it comes to truck accidents is often more difficult in a normal collision because there could be multiple parties to blame.
It is so important that you find a lawyer who understands Texan laws as well as federal laws. If you have been in a truck accident, then you have to engage with a lawyer who understands both very well. Texas law does impose some restrictions if you want to raise a case for your wrongful death or a personal injury. The statute of limitations says that you have to file a lawsuit within two years of the accident occurring. If you are filing a case for wrongful death, then the same limitation applies, but the two years is not measured from the date of the accident. Instead, it is measured from the date of the death.
There are also various laws and regulations that are very specific to the trucking industry across the US and Texas. The trucking sector in Texas is regulated by the FMCSA and they have their own set of laws that apply to truckers but not to drivers of normal vehicles. According to this regulation, a driver must have a set of certain qualifications before they operate an 18-wheeler truck.
There are also FMCSA rules that determine how many hours a driver can be on the road for. If you can team up with a solid lawyer, then they can ensure that you get to the bottom of your accident as well as getting the compensation you deserve.
