Frequently Asked Questions About Trucking Accidents
After a large truck accident, you may feel overwhelmed about your next steps. While recovering from an injury, the last thing you want to do is spend your time arguing with insurance companies or sitting in a courtroom. I understand how overwhelming the legal process can seem. I am here to answer your questions, but in the meantime, please see some answers to frequently asked questions about trucking accidents below.
What are the common causes of truck accidents?
Driver inattention, fatigue and recklessness are common causes of truck accidents in Texas. However, other factors may also cause a crash, including road conditions, improper truck maintenance and improperly loaded cargo.
How long do I have to file a claim in Texas?
In Texas, you have two years to a personal injury claim. However, evidence degrades over time and truck accidents involve a lot of investitive work between multiple parties. The sooner you contact me to get started on your case, the better chance you have at obtaining full and just compensation for your injuries.
What kind of damages can I recover?
In Texas, you can obtain damages for actual financial harms suffered and for your emotional pain after the accident. This may include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, lost earning potential and rehabilitative costs. You may also win compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of quality of life.
How long will my case take?
Every case is different and follows its own timeline. However, the length of your case depends on whether we can settle your claim through negotiations and mediation or if we have to take your case to trial.
