What We Do to Prove Liability
Recovering damages in a commercial vehicle accident case depends on successfully showing liability and negligence.
Our legal team may be able to prove the liability of the other party in your commercial vehicle accident case by:
- Inspecting photos, videos, and other evidence from the accident scene.
- Securing expert testimony from traffic engineers or accident reconstructionists to fully understand the cause and effect of the collision.
- Talking with your medical provider (with your permission) about your injuries and how they could affect your ability to return to your normal life activities.
- Obtaining copies of police reports, accident reports, and witness statements.
- Accessing the other party’s driving record, safety violations, drug or alcohol test results, and other relevant information.
You have the right to seek legal representation. Although hiring a lawyer does not guarantee financial recovery, a lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will help to protect your rights and give you the guidance you need to make informed decisions about your case.
Why Duty of Care Matters
Every licensed driver in Texas owes all those who share the roadway a duty of care, which means that drivers have an expected obligation to take reasonable measures to avoid harming other people. Obeying traffic laws, avoiding aggressive driving, and having a designated driver if you have been drinking all constitute due care.
A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC may secure evidence, testimony, and documentation that shows how the other party failed to uphold this duty of care. To learn more about our legal services, call (713) 850-8600 for a free case evaluation.
How We Seek Proof of Liability
A commercial vehicle accident lawyer serving Madisonville can examine the evidence we secure in order to determine that the other driver owed you a duty of care to avoid harming you. Our lawyers can then help prove the negligent party breached this duty in some way, such as by speeding or driving while intoxicated. Our lawyer may then proceed to argue that this negligence caused the accident, your injuries, and your damages in the form of medical bills, lost paychecks, and other losses.
Types of Damages You May Recover
You may think only about specific damages, such as hospital bills or lost pay for the time you could not work due to your injuries.
Other types of damages that arise from a commercial vehicle accident, such as emotional trauma, may also apply in your case. Accident victims may suffer from insomnia, depression, or anxiety. Damages that you may recover for your specific case may also extend to disability, disfigurement, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and property damage.
A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can assess your injuries and damages. In some cases, our firm consults with medical, vocational, or financial experts. Keeping all bills and expenses related to the accident can help your lawyer when included in your insurance claim or legal action.
