Frequently Asked Questions About Texas Truck Accidents
At Dilley Law Firm, we understand that the aftermath of a truck accident can be confusing and stressful. That’s why we’re here to guide you through the process. We understand that truck accident victims often have lots of questions about the law and their situation. Take a look at answers to frequently asked questions below:
Is it true that other parties could be responsible for my truck accident injuries other than the driver?
While truck drivers are at fault in some collisions, they may share liability – or be absolved entirely – in others. Depending on the cause of the accident, cargo loaders, manufacturers and trucking companies may shoulder partial or full responsibility for your injuries. An experienced attorney can help you assess who could be liable in your situation.
Why are truck accidents typically more dangerous than car accidents?
Put simply, commercial trucks are massive. When they collide with passenger vehicles, which are notably smaller, their size and weight can cause injuries that often prove devastating to occupants.
What types of compensation can I recover for my truck accident injuries?
Texas truck accident victims are entitled to various types of economic and noneconomic damages. Common economic damages include:
- Lost earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
Common noneconomic damages include:
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
The insurance company offered me a settlement. Do I really need a lawyer?
Yes, consulting a lawyer is crucial before you accept a settlement. Insurance companies often make lowball offers to accident victims; accepting their first or subsequent offer could cause you to leave money on the table. When you work with Dilley Law Firm, our lawyers will protect your interests and ensure any offer is fair for your situation, whether reached through negotiation or litigation.
