We Take Commercial Vehicle Accident Cases
An accident involving a commercial vehicle—any car, truck, or van used entirely for commercial or business purposes—can become complex. There can be several liable parties. We need proof that it is highly likely that these parties caused your injuries.
Since 2002, D. Miller & Associates, PLLC has taken on countless liable parties and recovered damages for our clients. We cannot promise the outcome of your individual case, but we are here for you 24/7 with personalized legal services.
Our practice area includes:
- Drunk driving (DWI) accidents
- Driving under the influence of drugs (both prescription and street drugs)

- Head-on collisions with injuries
- Rear-end collisions
- Defective tire tread, parts, or repairs
- Distracted driving accidents (for example, texting while driving)
- Hit and run accidents
The most important action you can take after any kind of accident is to see your doctor. Please follow your healthcare provider’s recommendations. This is for your best health and to avoid any questions about your injuries by the insurance adjuster.
How We Pursue Damages
Our legal team is prepared to thoroughly examine the accident, your injuries, and your damages.
We start by listening to your version of events. However, we know that the shock of the accident, combined with your injuries, can make a clear and detailed account more difficult.
That is why we follow a careful process to uncover the facts and liable parties.
This process might include:
- Obtaining a statement from the defendant
- Reading police reports
- Gathering witness testimony
- Talking to your doctor about your injuries and how they affect your life today and in the future
- Examining photos, videos, and physical evidence from the accident
- Requesting the defendant’s driving history, safety record, and training background
- Consulting an accident recreationist if necessary

When You Should Call Us
There are several reasons why we recommend that you call for a free case evaluation soon.
Insurance Companies Look for Excuses to Avoid Paying
Insurance adjusters may be suspicious of a lengthy delay between the date of the accident and when you file a claim. Insurance claims can become quite complex, and most people are not comfortable with the fine print and legal language on their own policy or the other party’s policy.
Evidence Can Disappear
When it comes to evidence and showing liability, it is best that you call us sooner rather than later. Evidence can erode or be removed. Witnesses’ recollections tend to be clouded over time.
Texas Statute of Limitations
Finally, personal injury lawsuits have a statute of limitations of two years from the date you were injured, according to Sec. 16.003 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code. That is not a lot of time to prepare a strong and compelling case.
We advise that you call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC as soon as you are feeling well enough to talk.
What Damages Could Be Recovered
Commercial vehicle accidents often involve two kinds of compensatory damages: general and special.
A lawyer with our firm will carefully evaluate your losses and seek recovery that might include:
- Property damage, including temporary transportation
- Medical care and treatment
- Lost pay
- Mental anguish, pain and suffering
- Diminished earning ability if disabled
- Loss of consortium or companionship
