Accidents between a car and a commercial truck are some of the most serious types of collisions, often resulting in life-altering injuries, permanent loss of quality of life, and high damages. What’s more, truck accidents can be quite complex, because they may involve several different parties and because motor carrier negligence or mismanagement may be a contributing factor.
Truck accidents include accidents with commercial vehicles like 18-wheelers and semi trucks, dump trucks and other construction vehicles, rental trucks, and even smaller commercial flatbed and pickup trucks. The variety of factors involved in these accidents mean that every case is truly unique — one reason that it’s in your best interest to speak to an attorney promptly.
As mentioned above, trucking accidents are often more complicated than an accident between two cars. The weight and size of these vehicles can have a significant impact on the severity of injuries. Additionally, due to the involvement of commercial motor carriers and multiple insurance providers, identifying and proving liability can be quite complex. These are just a few things to consider as you begin to resolve your case.
Here are some additional circumstances that may factor into your truck accident case.
Commercial drivers are responsible for inspecting and noting vehicle maintenance when necessary, while commercial carriers have a duty to carry out the required repairs and upkeep. If either party fails to do so, and that failure is proven to be a contributing factor in your accident, these parties can be held responsible for negligence.
Litigating for these losses and navigating the probate process is a complex and confusing exercise — one of the reasons why it’s a good idea to consult with a truck accident lawyer. San Antonio and Austin residents dealing with a wrongful death case can benefit from partnering with a law firm that has experience in both personal injury law and the Texas probate process, like our team at FVF.
