TYLER Truck Accident Attorney | East Texas

18 Wheeler Accident Lawyers Who Will Help You Get Your Life Back

Truck accidents are often much more serious and life-threatening than car wrecks.

But what really makes truck accidents difficult are the challenges that follow them:

  • The trucking industry has experienced lawyers who fight injury claims like yours all the time.
  • Insurance companies rarely pay claimants enough to cover their expenses.
  • Dealing with a claim prevents victims from focusing on what’s important — getting better.

If you’ve been injured in a truck wreck, you need an 18 wheeler injury lawyer who will take the burden off of your shoulders.

Biggs & Greenslade is here to fight for you and win the compensation you deserve.

We serve residents in Tyler, TX, Kaufman, TX, Henderson, TX, and the Greater East Texas area with quality legal representation.

Truck accidents can be very severe and can have consequences that last a lifetime. So please don’t settle for the settlement the insurance company offers you.

Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Lawyer?

Many people are hesitant to hire an 18 wheeler accident lawyer for multiple reasons. Here are some of the most common hesitations our clients tend to have:

They think they can’t afford a lawyer.

When you partner with us, you will not pay any expenses out of pocket. As personal injury lawyers, our fee is based on a contingency fee.

If you are awarded a settlement, we earn a percentage of it. If your case is not successful, we take on the cost, and you pay us nothing. So you have no financial obligation or out-of-pocket expenses when you hire the Biggs & Greenslade Law Firm as your Texas truck accident lawyers.

They believe their accident will not qualify for a claim.

Each accident is a unique event with unique challenges. The only way to know for sure whether your personal injury claim is worth pursuing is to consult an experienced legal professional.

The best first step is to call Biggs & Greenslade and set up a free consultation with one of our truck accident lawyers in Tyler, TX, Kaufman, TX, and Henderson, TX.

We will discuss the details of your case and advise you on how to move forward.

They’ve already received a settlement offer.

Often, trucking companies will offer what seems like a generous payout to victims of semi truck accidents. Many people accept the offer without knowing that they may be owed much more.

That’s why it’s essential to consult a personal injury lawyer before accepting a settlement offer from an insurance or trucking company.

Why Hire Us?

The team of attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade has the expertise to prepare for each case in a unique way.

A Lawyer Who Actually Has Trial Experience

Because most personal injury claims are settled outside of court, very few injury lawyers have much trial experience. However, Kenneth Morgan Biggs was a prosecutor for several years before becoming a personal injury lawyer. He has spent significant time arguing before a judge and jury.

If your case goes to trial, it is reassuring to know that you have an attorney with real trial experience on your side.

A Lawyer Who Knows How The Competition Thinks

John Greenslade spent years defending large insurance firms before becoming a personal injury attorney. He understands how large corporations approach a case to keep their liability to a minimum. He also knows what you really deserve compared with what the trucking company will offer you.

With our team representing you, you can be sure that your case will result in the best possible outcome.

How do tractor trailer or commercial truck wreck lawsuits work?

When someone gets hit by a large truck, the truck driver or trucking company could be liable to pay a lot of money. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are common. In fact, wrecks with big rigs have increased by 43% since 2010.

Trucking companies and other corporations that use commercial vehicles are experienced with personal injury claims, and they hire the best lawyers to defend them and minimize their liability. Their goal is to protect their company and decrease their losses.

Without an experienced lawyer, you will not get the money you deserve. While you could file a claim and accept a settlement without a Texas truck accident attorney, you likely won’t get a fair settlement without qualified representation.

Here’s our process of dealing with your case:

1. Schedule A Consultation

We’ll meet with you at no cost and evaluate your case. Our experienced attorneys will let you know if you have a case worth pursuing and explain the process.

2. Sign An Agreement

We want you to know exactly what to expect from your case. So when you are ready to partner with us, we will sign an agreement that explains our partnership as well as the contingency fee arrangement based on a percentage of the settlement we receive if we win the case.

3. Investigate The Facts

We will perform an in-depth investigation to understand every detail of the accident. That way, we can build a strong case on your behalf.

4. Calculate The Cost Of Your Losses

Our goal is to ensure all your expenses incurred by the injury, both past and future, are fully covered.

5. Take Your Case To Trial

Many cases are settled outside of court. However, if yours has to go to trial, you can be confident that you have a team of truck accident lawyers in TX who will fight for you.

How much compensation will I receive?

When it comes to accident victims, we’ve won millions of dollars on behalf of our clients in Smith County, Rusk County, and Kaufman County.

However, each truck accident case comes with a unique set of challenges. We can’t provide an estimate of your settlement without examining the details of your case. However, what we can tell you is how the settlements for these claims are calculated.

Two primary categories are used to determine the amount you deserve for your personal injury case: economic and non-economic damages.

Losses, or “damages,” that have a definite monetary value are called economic damages. They include:

  • Medical bills
  • Damage to your motorcycle
  • Loss of wages if the injury has kept you out of work
  • And other hard costs

Damages that do not have a definite monetary value are called non-economic damages. They include:

  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • And other intangible damages

If a trucking company has offered you a settlement, it is unlikely they have accounted for all these damages. That means they will probably not paying you what you deserve.

That’s why we urge you to contact the Biggs & Greenslade Law Firm today.
