Construction Truck Accident FAQ
Q: Who Will Pay For My Injuries?
We investigate each client’s case exhaustively. Our investigation will tell us whether the driver and the construction company are liable or if others may be responsible for your damages. We scrutinize the accident scene, and the circumstances leading up to the crash to determine whether someone was grossly negligent or reckless and can ask for punitive damages. We look at whether the safety equipment manufacturers properly manufactured the vehicle’s safety equipment. If not, then they are responsible for your damages as well.
Q: Why Did This Happen To Me?
We examine all of the circumstances of the crash to figure out exactly what happened. We have help. We use a team of experts who can help us reconstruct the accident, determine the extent of your injuries, and how your injuries occurred. We put all of this information together to make the strongest case possible for you. We know from experience that insurance companies insuring construction companies do not want to pay you what you deserve. They will use several arguments against you. They will try to blame you for the accident. They will also argue that you were not injured as severely as you claim, or that your injuries are not permanent. We know better. We work closely with you to learn who you are as a person so we can prove how badly you were hurt and how substantially the accident affected you and your family.
Q: What Does The Claims Process Entail?
Filing a claim for damages is the culmination of a lot of hard work and dedication to your cause. We work diligently to put together the best case we can for you. We accumulate all of your medical records and get a final opinion, or multiple opinions, about the injuries you suffered. We also compile all of our investigative materials and prove which party or parties are liable and why. We try to anticipate counterarguments and head those off as well. This procedure takes time and cases vary. We do know that Texas has a two-year statute of limitations. Meaning, you must file a lawsuit to claim damages for your injuries within two years of the date of the accident. Otherwise, your claim is forever barred.
Q: Can I Do Anything To Help?
We always appreciate it when our clients are engaged and participate in their cases. The best way you can help us help you is by being prepared. You can work with us by signing medical releases so your healthcare providers can send us your records. Also, you can help by attending all of your medical appointments. Making and keeping follow-up appointments, keeping physical therapy appointments, and doing the work at home is critical for your claim. Insurance companies will take your claim seriously if you take your recovery seriously
