We May Be Able to Hold Multiple Parties Liable
According to a legal doctrine known as respondeat superior, victims of accidents caused by the drivers of commercial vehicles may be able to hold the driver’s employer vicariously liable for their financial recovery. It is known that Texas courts shield employers from respondeat superior claims, so there are two factors that must be in place in order to hold multiple parties liable:
- The driver was classified as an employee of the company
- The driver was engaged in actions within the “course and scope” of their position when the accident occurred
We can help you understand if vicarious liability is relevant to your case. Call us now at (713) 850-8600 for a free case evaluation with a member of our team serving El Paso. The type of commercial vehicle accident lawyer El Paso, TX offers through D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will hold the responsible parties liable for your injuries and losses.
Navigating Texas Law Following an Accident
If our attorneys believe there is sufficient evidence to support your claim and we can prove the factors necessary for vicarious liability, we can likely file an insurance claim on your behalf. We will collect evidence and confirm the facts of your case, proving negligence and fault.
Since 2002, our team has fought for financial recovery on behalf of our clients across Texas. If the insurance company will negotiate in good faith, recovery may be possible without taking your case to trial. If the insurance company does not act in good faith, we will not hesitate to go to court if they refuse.
There Are Deadlines for Filing a Lawsuit
TX §16.001 of Texas law explains limitations of personal actions, including how long accident victims have to file a lawsuit. While this is not always necessary, we need to protect your right to do so. Even in the most straightforward cases, there could be a problem with the insurance claim, and we might need to take legal action. This also gives us leverage at the negotiation table—most insurance companies do not want to go to court any more than you do.
Because of this deadline, it is important that we go to work on your case early. We do not want to wait and then have a problem that jeopardizes your financial recovery at the last minute. Reach out to us as soon as possible after your injuries stabilize. Call (713) 850-8600 now to get started with a free case evaluation.
Possible Recovery After an Accident
Financial recovery, whether through an insurance settlement or personal injury lawsuit, allows accident victims to cover the expenses and losses they experience as a result of at-fault drivers’ negligence. These expenses and losses, sometimes called “damages,” include both economic and non-economic losses. While they vary from case to case, some common damages following a Texas traffic accident may include:
- Medical treatment, hospitalization, and other related costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Reduced earning ability due to lasting injuries
- Damages to your vehicle
- Other property damage
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
The damages you suffered and the financial recovery potentially available to you in this type of case are often closely linked. While this is not strictly true and there are other factors in play, we work to document your damages and pursue a fair recovery for them.
