Delivery Truck Injury FAQ
Q: Why Did This Company Delivery Truck Crash Happen?
Only a thorough and complete investigation will tell us what happened. We have tremendous experience working with many partners to help learn the cause of your accident. We work with accident reconstruction experts who analyze the crash. The accident reconstructionist may be able to tell us the speed of the vehicles involved in the collision, the length of braking before the crash, if any, and tell us if any yaw marks were observed and what those mean. We also work closely with law enforcement agencies and federal agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as well as other safety organizations to learn as much as we can about your crash.
Q: Who Is Liable For My Injuries?
More than one party may be responsible for your accident. The delivery truck driver may be liable as well as the company for whom the driver works. Also, the delivery truck owner, if the delivery company leased the truck, may be responsible. Additionally, other parties such as manufacturers and maintenance companies may be liable. We investigate all possibilities as to where liability lies. Only a thorough investigation will tell us who is responsible. We pride ourselves on making certain everyone who contributed to your pain and suffering will bear responsibility for their actions.
Q:How Long Will It Take Before I Receive Compensation?
The answer to this question depends upon a number of factors. We will immediately begin working to resolve your claim before filing a lawsuit. We do not have an unlimited amount of time to do that, however. In Texas, there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. Therefore, we will file suit on your behalf if the case does not settle within two-year window starting from the date of the crash. Otherwise, Texas courts will bar you from bringing a claim if the statute of limitations runs. While litigation can take some time, we work diligently to resolve your case as quickly as possible. We counsel against resolving your case rapidly without thoroughly investigating the accident, understanding the extent of your injuries, obtaining necessary medical opinions and learning all that we can about you and your life so that we can put the best case together on your behalf. You have only one opportunity to bring to justice those who are liable for your injuries.
Q:What Should I Do Immediately After A Delivery Truck Crash?
Try to put yourself in the best position possible going forward. Pay close attention to your medical appointments. Attend physical therapy, follow-up with your physicians when advised, keep appointments or immediately reschedule if you have a valid reason for missing the appointment. You might consider keeping a journal about your recovery. Make notes of the scene of the accident, write down how you remember how the accident occurred, the witnesses, the traffic conditions are good notes to keep. Also, you can write about your recovery from the injuries. Describe your pain and suffering in detail. Your notes will humanize the trauma you and your family suffered.
