Navigating a Commercial Vehicle Accident Case in Spring, TX
Since 2002, our attorneys have helped the victims of commercial vehicle accidents seek recovery based on the facts of their cases. Sometimes, a legal doctrine known as respondeat superior plays an important role in this type of case. We can help you understand if this doctrine may apply in your case.
If the facts of your case support the application of respondeat superior, we may be able to hold the driver’s employer vicariously liable for your damages. Texas case law allows this only when:
- The at-fault driver is an employee of the company at the time of the accident; and
- The at-fault driver was acting under the “course and scope” of their job at the time of the accident.
If we believe the respondeat superior should apply in your case, we will identify and gather the evidence and facts necessary to prove these two factors, as well as negligence. We will build a case to support your claim and file it on your behalf. If necessary, we will take your case to trial. In many cases, the insurer and the liable company will negotiate in good faith, and a lawsuit is not needed to pursue recovery.
At D. Miller & Associates, PLLC, we handle all commercial vehicle accident cases on a contingency basis. Call (713) 850-8600 with general questions about our services or for your free initial consultation and case evaluation with a member of our team.

Financial Recovery Following a Spring, TX, Commercial Vehicle Accident
If we can secure evidence and facts to support your claim, we can likely build a case for financial recovery. This evidence includes documenting your damages, both economic expenses and noneconomic losses. When we pursue recovery on behalf of a client—whether through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit—we generally seek damages such as:
- Medical treatment and care costs
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning ability if you cannot return to your previous work
- Property damage, including repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Pain and suffering and mental anguish
In some cases, the injuries victims receive in a commercial vehicle accident are more than their bodies can withstand, and they pass away as a result. If this happened to a member of your immediate family, we are very sorry for your loss. We know that no financial recovery can stop the hurt or bring them back.
However, you may have the legal right to seek recovery for yourself and other surviving family members. Reach out to us today to learn more.
There Are Limits on How Long You Can Wait to Take Legal Action
Texas Civil Code § Sec. 16.003 gives victims of personal injuries in Texas two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit when necessary. In some cases, there may be exceptions to this rule, though. It is important that we understand how quickly we need to act on your case if other deadlines apply.
We encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible after your injuries stabilize for your free case evaluation.
