At D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™, our Victoria truck accident lawyers can help you identify the appropriate party to pursue for financial recovery. Our personal injury law firm will help you gather supporting evidence and build a compelling case file. We will also negotiate with the at-fault party or their insurer on your behalf.
Trust Your Truck Accident Case to Our Client-Focused Law Firm
Fighting for monetary recovery after a truck accident means dealing with a plethora of paperwork. It will include insurance claims forms, evidence collection, and police and medical records. Our team will compile these documents for you.
To strengthen and support your case, we will also:
- Carefully evaluate and document your injuries and damages
- Identify the at-fault party and handle all ongoing communications
- Obtain available dashcam, smartphone, and surveillance footage
- Locate and interview all available truck accident witnesses
We will also manage the negotiation process by fielding offers, presenting them to you, and helping you reach a well-informed decision. If necessary, we will also take your case to trial.
We Can Identify the At-Fault Party in Your Truck Accident
Liability for the accident could belong to the driver if they drove while intoxicated, committed traffic violations, or otherwise compromised your safety. This can include distracted driving, reckless driving, and speeding. We will use your truck accident report to prove the driver’s actions were the cause of the accident.
Other potentially responsible parties include the trucker’s employer. The trucker’s employer could have encouraged them to exceed their allowable hours of service. We will also check to see if the truck was properly maintained and if the driver was duly licensed and properly trained. The truck’s maker could also be responsible if a flaw or defect caused the collision.

You Must Abide by the Statutory Deadline To Pursue Damages
Like many people, you might know there is a statute of limitations on all potential civil lawsuits. You might not know the specific statute that governs your particular personal injury case, though. Texas law notes that you generally have two years to file your lawsuit.
If you or someone you love was injured in the accident, the statutory clock starts running on the date of the accident. If a loved one was fatally injured, the clock starts running on the date of their passing.
The statute of limitations can be complicated, however, because many factors can change it. For instance, if you suffered harm in a hit-and-run accident, this could pause the statutory deadline.
When our truck accident team handles your case, we will interpret and explain the filing deadline. With enough notice, we can also ensure compliance and remove the risks of filing your case too late.
