Why We Recommend Calling a Lawyer Now
Texas has complicated liability and negligence laws. A commercial vehicle accident lawyer can help navigate the legal process of filing a claim on your behalf.
According to Civil Practice and Remedies Code 16.003 of the Texas State Statutes, you have only two years from the date you were injured to file a personal injury lawsuit. That is not much time when you consider that most personal injury lawsuits are filed after negotiations with the insurance company have broken down.
A commercial vehicle accident lawyer serving Texas City, Texas, from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can handle all aspects of your Texas City commercial vehicle accident case, including:
- Communicating with the insurance adjuster on your behalf.
- Collecting evidence of liability and negligence for both your insurance claim and future legal action, if necessary.

We offer a free case evaluation and will handle your case on a contingency basis. Call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC today at (713) 850-8600.
