Causes of Truck Accidents
Some causes of truck accidents are similar to those of typical automobile accidents, but the consequences can be far more serious. The pay structure for truckers rewards drivers for putting in more hours behind the wheel, so they are willing to take risks in order to make more money. These risks often lead to accidents, and injured drivers may be entitled to compensation for such negligence.
Compensation for Truck Collisions
Due to the serious injuries that often stem from truck collisions in East Texas, there are quite a few compensation options available to injured drivers.
You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages due to time away from work
In more serious cases, family members who lost a loved one in a truck collision may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
What to Do After an Accident
Immediately following an accident, it is important that you see a healthcare professional. Whether or not you think your injuries are severe, having medical records is a critical piece of a truck collision lawsuit.
After a truck collision, we recommend that you do the following to maximize your chances of a successful claim:
- Contact a reputable attorney
- File a claim with your insurance company
- Do not admit guilt or fault
- Do not speak to any insurance company without consulting an attorney
After the accident, we work with investigators to determine the cause of the accident and, when appropriate, use that information to prove negligence on the part of the truck driver.
