Why You Need an Attorney After a Truck Accident

Truck accidents are surprisingly common in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), there are tens of thousands of accidents involving commercial motor vehicles each year. Hundreds of those crashes prove fatal. 

Many of these accidents are caused by a driver’s negligence or recklessness, entitling the injured party to compensation. However, without the help of a Texas truck accident lawyer, they may not get the financial recovery they deserve. 

Proving liability or legal responsibility in a truck accident case can be difficult, let alone dealing with one or more insurance policies and the truck operator’s employer. Because of the complexities involved in truck accident claims, it is generally in your best interest to consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

What Are the Leading Causes of Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents can be caused by several factors. If the accident was caused by another person’s wrongdoing then you may be entitled to compensation. Even if you were partially to blame for the accident, you might still be able to recover damages against a negligent party. 

Leading causes of truck accidents in Texas:

  • Driver inattention (distracted driving)
  • Unsafe speed
  • Driving while impaired 
  • Driver fatigue
  • Inexperience or lack of proper training
  • Reckless driving
  • Cargo shift due to improper loading
  • Part malfunction or defect

Proving liability can be challenging without the help of an attorney. The insurance adjuster may try to place you to blame for the accident or may attempt to downplay your injuries. Retaining a Texas truck accident lawyer immediately after the crash is the best way to protect your rights and your recovery. 

What Are Common Injuries Related to Truck Accidents?

Large trucks are generally considered vehicles with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of 10,000 lbs or more. Their size makes it more likely that a collision will be severe and result in serious injuries.

Common injuries related to truck accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Damage to the spinal cord
  • Broken bones 
  • Damage to the internal organs
  • Amputation and disfigurement
  • Burn injuries
  • Facial lacerations and skull fractures
  • Broken teeth or jaw
  • Crushing injuries
  • Wrongful death

Depending on the situation, there may be one or more parties that can be held responsible for your injuries. It is important to act quickly as you may only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages.
