The financial costs incurred because of your collision are recoverable. Examples are:

You can also seek recovery for your non-economic losses. These are intangible damages that do not have a direct economic value. Your mental anguish and pain and suffering would be such damages.

Who Is Liable for My San Antonio Truck Accident?
When we pursue a case against a negligent truck driver, we may also hold their employer liable. According to the State Bar of Texas, employers in Texas may be vicariously liable for the harm their employees cause while they are on the clock.
This includes injuries that occur because of the employee’s:
- Careless mistakes
- Reckless behavior
- Other negligent actions
A truck driver moving cargo for their employer could be relevant in this situation, under this rule. This means we are not just taking on a careless truck driver. We can hold a corporation responsible and seek recovery based on their corporate liability insurance.
The truck accident team from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ is comfortable going toe-to-toe with any company that may be legally liable for our client’s injuries. You can learn more about how we may approach your case. Obtain your complimentary case evaluation.
There Are Deadlines for Filing A Lawsuit in A Texas Truck Accident Case
Under Texas law, you may only have up to two years to begin the legal process to take your case to trial. Some circumstances could also reduce the time you have to file the paperwork to start a lawsuit.
Not all cases go to trial, of course. Many of these claims settle before this deadline arrives. It takes time to build a case and negotiate a settlement, as well. We should have a chance to investigate and properly prepare your claim. Then, we can seek a financial recovery from the liable parties.
We recommend calling us as soon as possible after your accident. If your loved one suffered serious injuries, you can reach out on their behalf. We can evaluate your truck accident and offer insight into your legal options today.
