Who Is Responsible for Your Damages?
Under Texas law, you may seek damages from all liable parties. This amount may be proportional to the party’s responsibility for your injuries.
For example, we can hold an employer accountable for their employee’s actions if you suffered injuries while they were performing their job function.
Semi truck accidents might involve more than one liable party. A lawyer can identify all parties who have a direct or vicarious role in causing or contributing to your injuries.
Potentially liable parties in a semi truck accident include:
- A truck company
- The truck’s owner
- A party who leased the truck or the trailer
- A party who commissioned the cargo
- The truck manufacturer
- A tire manufacturer
- A safety inspector
- A maintenance provider
Commonly Awarded Damages in a Semi Truck Accident Case

We may consult with expert witnesses who can testify to your injuries and their impact on your anticipated prognosis.
Factors that Affect Case Results
No two semi truck accidents are alike. Individual case results are affected by several factors, including:

You may rest easier knowing that a semi truck accident lawyer from our team will work tirelessly on your behalf to recover damages from the responsible party.
