Have You Been Injured in a Truck Accident
that was due to someone else’s negligence?

Frequently, victims of accidents find themselves at the mercy of insurance claim representatives who decide the course of compensation. However, the primary goal of these representatives is to reduce the financial burden on their insurance companies, not to ensure the victims are fully compensated. This inherent conflict of interest between what is beneficial for the victims and what serves the insurance company can result in offers that significantly undervalue the victim’s claims. Without legal representation, individuals often accept settlements that are not only insufficient but also not reflective of what they are entitled to under the law and the specifics of their insurance policies. The complexity of Texas law and the intricacies of insurance policies are daunting for most, and even seasoned insurance professionals may find themselves out of depth with commercial claims. This underscores the importance of consulting with a lawyer who has expertise in these matters. An initial consultation, even if one chooses not to hire a lawyer, can provide essential insights into the challenges and potential compensation avenues.

Encountering a large truck like a tractor trailer, semi-truck, or 18-wheeler on the road can lead to catastrophic outcomes, often resulting in severe injuries or fatalities, imposing significant financial, emotional, and physical tolls on the victims and their families. At the Barber Law Firm, our mission is to alleviate some of the financial strain through legal compensation for those affected by truck accidents. We offer complimentary consultations for individuals and families contemplating legal recourse after such incidents. Each year, the United States sees nearly half a million large truck accidents, with around 5,000 leading to fatalities. Notably, these collisions disproportionately impact the occupants of the other vehicles involved, rather than the truck drivers, due to the protective advantage offered by the larger size of trucks. Representing victims of 18-wheeler accidents and their families in Dallas, attorney Kris Barber is committed to seeking justice for those suffering serious injuries due to the negligence of large vehicle operators.

In Texas, compensation after a truck accident isn’t just about covering immediate medical bills; it encompasses a broad spectrum of economic and non-economic damages designed to address the multifaceted impact of the accident on an individual’s life.

Economic Damages: Tangible Losses

Economic damages are the most straightforward form of compensation, covering the quantifiable financial losses a victim incurs as a result of the accident. These include:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes emergency care, hospitalization, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and any future medical treatments related to the injuries sustained in the accident.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for the income lost while recovering from the accident. If the injuries result in a decreased earning capacity, future lost wages can also be recovered.
  • Property Damage: This covers the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle and any other personal property damaged in the accident.

Non-Economic Damages: Intangible Losses

Non-economic damages compensate for the less tangible, but equally real, impacts of a truck accident. These can be more challenging to quantify but are essential for a comprehensive recovery:

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress experienced as a result of the accident.
  • Loss of Quality of Life: If the injuries prevent you from engaging in activities or hobbies you once enjoyed, compensation can be sought for this loss.
  • Mental Anguish: Compensation for psychological impacts such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD stemming from the accident.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the impact on the relationship with your spouse due to the injuries sustained.

Punitive Damages: Beyond Compensation

In cases where the conduct of the truck driver or trucking company was particularly reckless or egregious, punitive damages may be awarded. Unlike economic and non-economic damages, which aim to compensate the victim, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future. While not common, these damages can be significant and are considered in cases involving drunk driving, egregious violations of safety regulations, or intentional misconduct.

Navigating the Claims Process

Pursuing compensation in the wake of a truck accident in Texas requires a deep understanding of both state laws and the intricacies of personal injury litigation. The process can be complex, involving negotiations with insurance companies, gathering of evidence, and, potentially, litigation. Given the high stakes and the aggressive tactics often employed by defense teams, having an experienced attorney by your side can be invaluable.

  • Obtain the truck driver’s name, phone number, and insurance policy details
  • Record the trucking company’s name
  • Take photos of the accident scene, property damage, and any injuries
  • Secure a copy of the police report or accident report
  • Document any medical attention or medical treatment received

Several kinds of trucks are recognized as commercial vehicles, such as 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, refuse collection trucks, dump trucks, flatbed trucks, and concrete mixers. Additionally, larger models of trucks typically used for personal or consumer purposes, like the Ford F-series or Chevrolet Silverado, can also be categorized under commercial vehicles depending on how they are used and insured. 

It’s crucial to refrain from engaging in conversations with insurance adjusters, representatives, or attorneys affiliated with the trucking company until you’ve consulted with your own truck accident lawyer. These individuals aim to elicit statements from you that could be used to challenge your compensation claim later on. Once you have a truck accident attorney representing you, direct any contact from these parties to your lawyer, who will manage all communications for you, ensuring your rights and interests are protected.

Consulting a truck accident attorney promptly following a collision is essential. An attorney can assess the details of your incident to determine if you have a legitimate claim for compensation. Engaging an attorney or law firm swiftly enables your legal representative to start investigating your case and initiate the process of filing claims for compensation against the responsible parties and their insurers sooner rather than later.
