Car accidents happen every day in Houston, Texas. If you’re lucky, you are not injured. With a car crash, the severity of the impact varies depending on the disparity of speeds between the vehicles. But with a commercial vehicle like an 18-wheeler, because the big rig waste so much more than passenger vehicles, even a low-speed crash can be fatal.
Because most 18-wheeler accident claims involve significant injury, the cases take longer to settle for a fair amount. The more serious the damages, the longer the case should take. There are exceptions to the rule, such as severe damages and a smaller commercial insurance policy.
But the worse the damages are, the longer the case should take to settle.
The More Your Damages,
the Longer the Case
Seven and eight-figure settlements do not happen overnight. It can easily take two years to get a trial setting in Texas. The countdown starts from the time a truck accident lawsuit is filed. It is reasonable to expect a significant damage truck accident personal injury claim to last up to two years and sometimes longer.
