Clute Truck Accident Lawyer

You did not choose to be injured in a truck accident. You may have a truck accident lawyer represent you in front of the insurance adjuster or a judge to seek financial recovery.

Many truck accidents are the fault of primarily one individual. Occasionally, these collisions are caused by a manufacturer’s error, such as defective tires.

A truck accident lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can help you seek financial recovery if another person or entity caused the accident and your injuries.

We Take Care of the Details While You Take Care of Yourself

There are many details that must be managed if you are trying to recover damages after a truck accident. If you are seriously injured or taking care of an injured family member, you may not have the time, energy, or resources on your own.

A truck accident lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can devote the staff and resources of our law firm to helping you and your family get the recovery you deserve.

Here is what you might expect a truck accident lawyer to take care of on your behalf:

  • Collect all proof of your current out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Valuate your damages including any future expenses, such as surgery, lost income, or lifecare costs.
  • Obtain expert testimony and evidence of liability against the other driver.
  • Talk to your medical provider about your injuries and your prognosis.
  • File and manage your insurance claim.

A truck accident lawyer may also take your case to trial if the insurance adjuster or defendant does not agree to an acceptable settlement.

Why You Should Not Delay Calling a Truck Accident Lawyer

If you were in an accident involving a commercial truck, you should know that trucking companies waste little time dispatching investigators, insurance adjusters, and attorneys. While hiring an attorney does not guarantee that you will recover damages, few people understand complex liability and negligence laws. A truck accident lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will protect your rights.

It is your legal right to have a lawyer represent you, and it may prevent you from:

  • Accepting a settlement that is inadequate for your injuries and damages.
  • Making an innocent or inadvertent error in a statement to the insurance company.
  • Decreasing your health status with the added stress of dealing with the insurance adjuster.
  • Losing your opportunity to take legal action if you miss the deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit.

You have two years from the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit under Texas Civil Code § Sec. 16.001. It takes time to gather evidence and build a compelling case, so please call today to find out how we might help you recover damages.

A Truck Accident Lawyer Gathers Evidence to Support Your Case

A lawyer with our firm will listen carefully to your account of what happened just before, during, and after the collision. In addition to your personal statement, a truck accident lawyer will collect evidence that supports that the other driver may be liable for your injuries.

This evidence could include:

  • Photos and videos of the accident site, including key details such as skid marks, debris, and of your damaged vehicle.
  • Many commercial trucks now have on-board digital devices to further complete any missing details as we reconstruct the accident.
  • Eyewitness accounts from other motorists, passengers, or pedestrians.
  • Police and official accident reports.
