Additionally, the commercial truck accident case is generally more complicated when it involves multiple parties such as maintenance companies, motor carriers, and other potential defendants. We have been helping Texas families after an accident with an 18-Wheeler for over 35 years and have not lost a single case. You deserve a nationally top-rated truck accident lawyer who can be there for you.
Establishing violations of the laws is a priority to secure liability in the lawsuit and support the personal injury or wrongful death damages. We have a team ready to investigate your case and aggressively prosecute it to a successful conclusion.
Generally, tractor-trailers or other commercial vehicles carry a minimum of $1 million of liability insurance. There are a few situations where the truck may have less insurance and many cases where the truck is covered by more than $1 million of liability insurance. The larger the trucking company the more likely it is that they have excess insurance above their primary policy.
Anytime your health insurance company pays a medical bill that can be part of a lawsuit against a trucking company; the health insurance company can be expected to seek to be paid back for the medical expenses that they have paid. The payback obligation is called subrogation.
If we accept your case, we will also handle the subrogation issues and work to maximize the compensation that you take home in your pocket.
Insurance carriers for trucking companies are like other insurance companies in that they do not want to pay fair value unless they are made to do so.
Do not for one second believe that an insurer for the truck driver will treat you fairly without an attorney. If an insurance company adjuster is “accepting responsibility” or telling you to “send us your medical bills”- run, do not walk, to the best trucking accident attorney you can find.
If you do not have health insurance and we accept your case, we will work with you to get you the treatment that you need without you having to pay out of your pocket to get better.
If your case goes to litigation, the timeline in Texas can depend upon the specific court and also the county of the crash. The more serious the injuries, generally the longer the case will take. Severe injury and wrongful death cases can last for one to two years or more.
Texas is a proportionate responsibility state, meaning that you can be partly at fault and still recover money as long as you are not more than 50% at fault. A Texas jury makes the ultimate determination of responsibility.
