Semi-Truck Accident Lawyers in Kaufman, TX

Last Year There Were 40 Thousand Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles

Last year, almost a thousand Texans were killed in crashes involving semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles.

Commercial vehicles are larger than passenger cars. That means that when the two are involved in an accident, the passenger vehicle is likely to come out a lot worse than the truck.

The consequences of an accident involving a commercial vehicle can be devastating. Serious injury, massive property damage, and death are common.

If you were injured in an accident, you might be able to file a personal injury claim to get compensation for your injuries and the damage done to your vehicle.

What Compensation Can Your Semi-Truck Accident Lawsuit Get You?

Filing a personal injury lawsuit allows you to claim that the negligent party is responsible for damages done to you, your property, or your loved ones. Your lawsuit will petition for compensation for those damages.

Property Damages

After an accident with a commercial vehicle, chances are your car is totaled. Any part of a personal injury lawsuit will include the damages that insurance can–and should–cover. This can also include other property damage.

Medical Damages

Medical bills make up the largest expenses after a commercial vehicle accident. Your doctor’s visits, surgery, physical therapy, and future medical expenses can be compensated for.

Lost Wages

If you’ve been injured, chances are that you’ve missed some work. You may also now be unable to work. We’ll help you get compensation for the wages you’ve lost—now and in the future.

Pain & Suffering

It’s difficult to put a value on the pain and suffering you experienced after your accident. You can be compensated for it, and we’ll fight to ensure you get everything you deserve.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, the person who caused the accident is deemed so negligent that a judge or jury chooses to punish them financially. Punitive damages don’t always happen, but we’ll fight for them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Personal injury attorneys are paid by a contingency fee. This fee is deducted from the case’s final award. If you don’t win, you pay nothing.

This arrangement is to ensure that our clients get the best possible legal representation in personal injury cases.

When should I hire a truck accident attorney?

Since a consultation costs nothing, it’s in your benefit to at least consult with a personal injury attorney. If you’ve been injured and are encountering resistance from the other party’s insurance company, you should really consider hiring one.

How long will my case take?

It depends. Your attorney will want you to make a full recovery before concluding your lawsuit. This will give them the most accurate accounting of your medical expenses that resulted from the accident.

Can you help me see a doctor?

Yes. We work with a number of doctors, and we can get you in to see them. They will delay billing you until you’re awarded your final suit.

Hiring a personal injury attorney is one of the best ways to get the medical treatment you need, especially if you’re uninsured.

Will there be a trial?

Personal injury suits rarely result in a trial. It is possible that your case goes to trial, but that choice is ultimately up to you. Your lawyer will advise you about what they think is best, but you can choose what is best for you.

Should I talk with the insurance company?

No. Your attorney will handle all communication with insurance companies. Remember, they are trying to pay you as little as possible, and anything you tell them may affect your final compensation.

How much is my claim worth?

It’s difficult to estimate how much compensation you may get from your lawsuit. The attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade will fight to ensure that you’re fairly compensated for the suffering you’ve endured from your accident.
