Legal Options in a Serious Truck Accident in Texas
While it’s hard enough to obtain a fair insurance settlement in a car accident, truck accident claims can be even tougher. An accident with an 18-wheeler is bound to be more serious. The greater severity of injuries typically requires a much higher compensation. Many insurance companies may be unwilling to settle for such amounts.
Next, one must consider the industry’s use of complex lease arrangements and contractual relationships. These often lead to several different defendants blaming each other. It can become a mess of finger-pointing and deflection.
Finally, commercial liability insurance makes it even harder. You’ll be expected to prove every detail of a claim worth hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.
Needless to say, getting full and fair compensation in a truck accident is not easy. You should consult a top accident attorney immediately.
Proving Negligence against Corporate Defendants and their Insurers
Semi-truck traffic is problematic for a variety of reasons. Firstly, there are the increasing calls for deregulation. Secondly, there are the issues with NAFTA, which has seen an influx in poorly maintained 18 wheelers from Mexico and Central America. Then there are mounting pressures on the drivers themselves. Truckers are expected to travel more miles in less time under conditions of fatigue.
Fortunately, experienced accident lawyers can help. At Khattar Law, we are highly familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. This allows us to spot safety violations in order to establish truckers’ liabilities in accidents. Additionally, we are skilled in making accurate accident assessments. We will evaluate all damages and persuasively argue for the full and fair settlement you deserve.
Our negotiating and litigation skills can help you get the compensation you need.
As well as representing victims of 18 wheeler accidents, our attorneys also handle damages claims related to other commercial vehicle crashes.
