Whenever you or a loved one suffers injuries in a truck accident, you may have a personal injury claim against the driver at fault, the trucking company that employs the driver, and other parties. Through a personal injury case, you may be able to get damages for your injuries.
A lawyer from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™, serving Huntsville can evaluate your truck accident case, gather evidence supporting your claim, and guide you through the personal injury claims process.
What Can Our Law Firm Do for You?
After a truck accident, you should focus on your injuries and the medical treatment that you need. However, there are also legal matters to take care of following a truck accident, including communicating with the truck company, its insurance, and other parties. Our law firm can help you and your family by handling these contacts on your behalf and allowing you to concentrate solely on your medical condition and treatment.
We can take on many tasks related to your personal injury claim after a truck accident. Allowing us to take on these responsibilities can relieve some of your burdens during this challenging time. Here are some of the functions we can perform:
- Investigating the circumstances that led to your truck accident
- Gathering evidence to support your claim
- Negotiating with the insurance company
- Representing your interests in court
All too often, insurance companies for large national trucking companies will try to intimidate you into accepting a quick settlement for your injuries. They may contact you continuously, bury you with legal paperwork that you may not understand, and put pressure on you to resolve your claim right away.
We can eliminate this stress from your life and work toward a full financial recovery for your claim.
Why Should You Choose Us?
Truck accident cases often involve state and federal regulations that govern commercial vehicles, unlike most motor vehicle accident cases. Therefore, hiring an attorney from our firm who is familiar with these regulations and how they might impact your case can help. Since 2002, we have handled truck accident cases, ranging from accidents involving smaller passenger trucks to large commercial trucks or 18-wheelers.
We also pride ourselves on the comprehensive services that we offer our clients. D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™, can protect your interests in your truck accident case. We are ready to meet with you at your convenience, no matter your preferred time or location, to provide you with your free case consultation.
What Can I Get in a Truck Accident Case?
Damages you may receive after you suffer injuries in a truck accident can compensate you for your related losses. The extent of your injuries, whether you have permanent impairments, and the quality of the evidence in your case all can impact the financial recovery you might get in a truck accident case.
The circumstances surrounding the accident also can affect the damages you might get. These damages may include:
- Medical expenses for emergency and ongoing treatment, as well as future medical care and injury-related needs
- Lost wages, loss of future income, and loss of earning capacity
- Mental pain and suffering
- Permanent impairments, such as scarring or loss of limbs
Every truck accident case and the injuries that result is different, so one case may involve damages that another does not. A lawyer serving Huntsville from our law firm can examine your situation and ensure that all potential damages are included in your settlement demand.
Who Is Responsible for My Injuries from a Truck Accident?
The parties that cause your accident are liable (financially responsible) for the costs of your injuries and other losses. These parties may be individuals, such as truck drivers, or businesses, such as trucking companies or carriers. Truck owners, if they’re different from the truck drivers or carriers involved, can also be responsible for an accident.
Furthermore, if defective truck parts contributed to the accident, the companies that designed, manufactured, and distributed the parts may be liable. Independent companies responsible for inspecting or maintaining the trucks could also face liability in a truck accident claim. We can help identify all potentially responsible parties in your case and investigate all possible aspects of your claim.
When do I Have to File My Truck Accident Case in Court?
Most states have specific statutes of limitations or deadlines for filing lawsuits with the court. Texas law requires that most personal injury cases be filed in court no more than two years from the day your injuries occurred. If you fail to meet this statute of limitations, the court can dismiss your case, and you could lose your right to a financial recovery for your injuries.
A few exceptions do exist to this general statute of limitations, but getting timely legal advice can help. Otherwise, you risk being unable to claim any recovery for your losses. As a result, you must be aware of these time limitations and how they might affect your claim for damages.
