Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Do You Need A Truck Accident Lawyer?
What To Do When You’re Involved In An Accident With A Tractor-Trailer
Many of the questions you find here also apply to auto accidents. The same basic concerns remain – repairing your vehicle, paying your medical bills and covering your lost time at work. We hope you find them helpful.
How much is my case worth?
The dollar value associated with your case is based on the type and extent of injuries and property damage you have sustained. Our experienced tractor-trailer accident lawyers will review your case in detail to develop at a dollar amount that the trucking company and insurance company should pay for your property damage, lost wages, injuries and long-term care in case of disability.
How long will it take to get a fair and reasonable settlement offer?
Tractor-trailer accident cases that occur in Texas can settle quickly but it usually takes anywhere from a few months to a few years, in some cases. Typically, your case will be resolved only after you have completely healed from your injuries and have been released by your doctor. Should you be permanently disabled, your case will be concluded once a qualified physician has made and catalogued this diagnosis.
Will I have to go to court?
If the trucking company and insurance company pay what we agree your case is worth, and you wish to settle for that amount, you won’t need to go to court. Most claims are settled in this manner. However, if the trucking company and insurance company refuse to pay the agreed amount, our skilled tractor-trailer accident lawyers will pursue your case in court and attempt to get a jury verdict to fully compensate you.
How much will you charge me?
We won’t charge you anything unless you agree to a settlement or the court awards you compensation. Our fees will be deducted from the settlement or award you receive.
Should I release my medical records to the insurance adjuster?
Who will pay the doctor bills and fix my car if the other person or trucking company has no insurance?
Even if the other driver or owner of the tractor-trailer doesn’t have insurance, you may be covered through your own insurance company. Check with our experienced tractor-trailer accident lawyers. We can review your policy and tell you if you have the necessary coverage that can compensate you in this situation. More on this website:
