Let A Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer Serving Dallas, TX Evaluate Your Case
Commercial vehicle accident cases can seem somewhat complex because of a legal doctrine known as respondeat superior. This common law doctrine means that the company who employs a worker may be vicariously liable for that worker’s negligent actions if they occur while the worker is on the job.
Respondeat superior comes into play in many commercial vehicle accident cases, allowing your attorney to file an insurance claim based on the corporate liability policy of the at-fault driver’s employer. We know how to navigate these cases and how to determine if vicarious liability may apply in your case.
The trucking company may be vicariously liable when:
- The negligent driver who caused the accident is classified as an employee of the company in question (not an independent contractor, for example)
- The negligent driver was working and engaged in actions within the “course and scope” of their position when the accident occurred
Since 2002, our lawyers have worked with clients who sustained injuries and damages in accidents related to employer vehicles. When we represent a victim of this type of accident, we:
- Evaluate the strength of the case to better understand the victim’s options
- Determine if we may be able to hold the driver’s employer vicariously liable
- Deal with the insurance company so our client can focus on their healing and physical recovery
- Investigate the accident and secure the necessary evidence to prove their claim
- Secure financial recovery through a negotiated agreement or take the case to trial, if necessary
Call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC today at (713) 850-8600 to learn more about how our lawyers may be able to help you pursue financial recovery.
We Can Pursue Financial Awards
The goal of filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit is to secure financial recovery. When we pursue this type of action on behalf of a commercial vehicle accident victim, we will work toward providing the evidence necessary to support our client’s claim. A pursuit of this kind generally necessitates documentation of a wide range of accident-related expenses and losses, which shows the potentially recoverable damages our client suffered.
Some of the damages we frequently pursue for traffic accident victims include:
- Medical treatment and related expenses
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning ability if they cannot return to work
- Property damage, including repair or replacement of their vehicle
- Pain and suffering and mental anguish
Some families may qualify to receive financial recovery in the form of wrongful death damages.
