Edinburg Truck Accident Lawyer Obtaining Maximum Compensation For Injury Victims

Texas is well known for the innumerable amount of vehicles that travel down the thousands of miles of roads in Texas every day. As more individuals travel and move to the Lonestar state, there is a greater need for more goods and services to be delivered through commercial vehicles.

However, with more passenger and commercial vehicles on the roads and interstates, motorists run a greater risk of being injured in an accident. As our state’s population continues to increase, the risk of colliding with an 18-wheeler also rises considerably.

Sadly, commercial vehicle accident victims typically experience significant injuries that leave them unable to work and support themselves and their families, along with costly medical bills that may be difficult to pay.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping personal injury victims, and you will pay us no money unless we win your case.

What is the Leading Cause of Truck Accidents in Texas?

Truck accidents are similar to other motor vehicle accidents in that they can occur for various reasons, such as adverse weather or road conditions. However, collisions involving large commercial vehicles can have far more deadly consequences for all parties involved and, in many cases, could have been avoided.

Some of the most commonly reported factors that contribute to truck accidents in Texas include:

  • Distracted driving often leads to accidents when the driver looks at their cell phone or tries to operate their GPS.
  • Speeding or aggressive driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Driving on old worn, out tires
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Lack of driver training and experience

However, the number one contributing factor that leads to commercial vehicle accidents in Texas is driver fatigue. Trucking companies often push their drivers to make their deliveries on time or early so they can get to their next stop. As a result, many drivers lack adequate sleep and are driving while fatigued, which frequently results in motorists being severely injured.

Regardless of how you sustained your injuries in a truck crash, you must hire an experienced attorney who can help you file a claim to recover financial compensation for damages. Contact our law offices and ask to schedule a free case review to explore your legal options.

Who Can Be Held Liable For a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

Liability is a legal term that defines who should be held responsible or ruled at fault for causing an accident. In motor vehicle accident cases, the injured party has the legal option to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party.

However, cases involving trucking accidents can be overly complex as multiple entities can often be liable for motorists’ injuries. For this reason, motorists involved in a truck crash must seek qualified legal representation from an experienced attorney. A skilled attorney can review your case, determine who should be held liable, and help you file a claim or multiple claims if appropriate.

Those who could potentially be held responsible for injuries sustained in a trucking accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • If it can be determined supervisors pushed the driver to operate past their Hours of Service (HOS) or lacked adequate training, the trucking company may be held liable.
  • If an investigation reveals a mechanical defect leading up to the accident, the truck manufacturer may also be liable.
  • The company that loaded the truck if it is determined that the cargo was improperly loaded.
  • In cases where defective brakes or tire blowouts were determined to cause the accident, the truck manufacturer may also be held legally responsible.

Other legal issues may also need to be assessed if you have been involved in a multiple-vehicle accident. Therefore, it is best to consult with a skilled attorney who can evaluate which parties should be held accountable.

How Will I Be Reimbursed For My Medical Expenses After Being Injured in a Truck Accident?

If you have been injured in a collision with a large truck, you will most likely have extensive injuries requiring prolonged medical treatment and a lengthy recovery period. However, one of the last things you want to deal with is negotiating with the insurance company to ensure your medical bills and other injury-related expenses are covered.

The Brasure Law Firm, PLLC, will act as your ally and legal advocate with the insurance provider to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Texas personal injury law allows accident victims the right to try and collect economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are awarded to reimburse the victim for out-of-pocket expenses they have or may pay in the future and often include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages are subjective and are based on intangible losses the accident victim has suffered and may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring.
