Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck collisions are often far more serious than other vehicle accidents that we see here in Texas. Unfortunately, the size and weight of these vehicles are more likely to cause severe injuries and damage to other people and objects that they come in contact with. Victims who are involved in truck accidents are often left with traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and severe spinal cord injuries.
If you are injured in a truck accident caused by the negligence of another, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. In Texas, the party or parties who may be held liable for your injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident.
If the truck wreck was caused by the negligence of the truck driver, then the driver or the trucking company may be held liable. If the accident was caused by a defective truck or part, then the manufacturer of the faulty truck or part may be held liable. And if the accident was caused by poor road conditions, then the governmental entity responsible for maintaining those roads may be held liable.
To establish liability in a truck accident case, your attorney will need to investigate the cause of the accident and identify all potential defendants. Then, they will need to gather evidence to support your claim that each defendant is liable for your injuries. This will require obtaining police reports, statements from witnesses, records from your doctor, and various other types of evidence. After gathering the strongest evidence against the responsible party, your attorney will take legal action against them.
Filing a personal injury case can be complicated, but a skilled and knowledgeable Austin truck accident attorney can help you navigate the process and build a strong case against the negligent truck driver. It is important that you seek legal guidance right away to ensure you have the best chance of getting justice.
