A: In the state of Texas, under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 16.003.a, you have roughly two years in which to bring your case to court before the statute of limitations runs out. In most situations, this code goes without question – however – there are notable exceptions to the rule. To discuss the finer details, contact a professional personal injury attorney with a history of truck accident litigation.
A: As with most Texas personal injury claims, a trucking accident suit greatly depends on who was at fault or negligent in their responsibilities at the time. In most cases, the operator of the truck is to blame for the wreck. On the other hand, if there was faulty mechanics at work or an overbearing hauling company pressuring the driver, the suit could end up including a number of different parties. By speaking to a personal injury attorney and allowing their team to further investigate the cause of the wreck, you'll gain greater insight into who should be held accountable.
A: Absolutely not – at least not until you've spoken with an experienced trucking accident attorney. Simply put, insurance adjustors work for trucking companies and they both want the same thing – to make sure you settle for the lowest amount possible. They do not have your well-being in mind and will actively attempt to rattle you or prove the accident has had no adverse effect on your life. Do not let them. If you are contacted by an insurance adjustor or the trucking company following an accident, simply direct them to your personal injury attorney. Only a firm dedicated to holding these big businesses responsible will be able to help you secure a fair compensation.
A: There are a number of factors to look at when retaining an attorney. Chief among these would be their experience with personal injury lawsuits, specifically large truck accidents. You'll want representation that understands both your situation and has experience handling large trucking companies and their counsel in court.
A: This can vary greatly, depending on the amount of damage caused, injuries sustained and overall negligence on the part of the at-fault party. There are medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering to consider, as well as a whole host of punitive damages a judge may award if the wreck was severe enough. The only way to be sure is to contact the Waco truck accident attorneys at Williams & Brown LLP and have them review your case. Call today at (888) 741-6200 or (254) 741-6200.
