Pursuing Recovery Is an Intricate Process

Texas has specific requirements for plaintiffs seeking damages from a liable defendant. It can be daunting to navigate this legal maze on your own, especially if you are not feeling well or if you are taking care of a loved one who was injured in the accident.

Commercial vehicle accidents tend to be more challenging than other types of traffic accidents. They may involve more than one liable party. They also could involve extensive injuries that could require legal and medical experts.

A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ can help you seek recovery with a thorough process that protects your rights.

We can:

  • Evaluate your injuries and damages.
  • Identify all liable parties.
  • Secure evidence, documentation, and testimony to build a case against the other party or parties.
  • Communicate and negotiate with the insurance company.
  • Prepare for trial if the other side will not negotiate in good faith.

You have the right to select a lawyer to represent you against the insurance company or liable defendant.

What Damages You Might Be Entitled to Receive

A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ helps you recover damages that typically fall into two categories: general and special.

General damages are sometimes called noneconomic losses because they are intangible damages. Special damages are specific, tangible losses. Many commercial vehicle accident victims have both general and special damages.

Our lawyers can assess and identify damages unique to your case. These damages could include:

  • Current and future medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Lifecare expenses
  • Property damage including temporary transportation
  • Pain and suffering

Additional Damages for Complex Injuries

If you have extensive injuries that affect your ability to earn a living or need constant medical care, a lawyer might also seek damages for:

  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Medical devices or equipment
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship or consortium

Do not hesitate to reach out to a lawyer for help. You only have to focus on getting better while we fight for you.

We Help Prove Liability After a Commercial Vehicle Accident

Our lawyers can help determine who is liable for your injuries. This is an important factor if you want to pursue recovery.

Our process for establishing liability include:

  • Determine how the other party owed you a duty of care to take reasonable action to prevent injury.
  • Demonstrate how the other party breached this duty (for example, driving too fast).
  • Show how this breach directly caused your injuries.
  • Prove that you have damages because of your accident-related injuries.

D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ will use our resources to help you. We are unafraid to tackle complex cases.

When to Contact a Law Firm

Many commercial vehicle accidents are resolved without the need to go to court. Like other states, Texas has a statute of limitations that allow lawsuits to be filed within a defined time. Texas law gives you two years from the date you were injured to file a personal injury lawsuit.

It takes time to gather evidence, call witnesses, and other related tasks. That is why we encourage you to call us today to learn more.
