Truck Accidents in Texas
A truck accident can have a significant impact on your life. This is particularly true if your accident has left you significantly injured. Regrettably, accidents take place in Texas every day that leave victims of severe injuries that require medical care. After being hurt in a truck accident, you may be able to file a personal injury case against the responsible party.
There are many different parties who could potentially be held liable in a truck accident case in Texas. The liable party will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of the accident.
The truck company may be held liable if the accident was caused by a defect in the truck or by the truck company’s negligence in maintaining the truck. The truck owner may also be held liable if he or she was aware of the defect or should have been aware of it.
The truck driver may be held liable if he or she was speeding, driving recklessly, or otherwise acting negligently. The cargo company may also be held liable if the cargo was improperly loaded or secured.
Finally, the part manufacturer may be held liable if a defective part caused the accident. It is important to note that any one of these parties may also be insured, so even if you are not able to sue the party directly, you may still be able to collect from their insurance company.
A thorough investigation can help to determine who is liable for the truck accident in which you are harmed. Working with a skilled Houston truck accident lawyer can help to ensure that you have adequate evidence to prove your case so you can demand timely compensation for your damages.
