Denton Truck Accident Lawyer

If you were hurt in a truck accident, you may have the right to receive compensation for your injuries. A Denton truck accident lawyer regularly handles personal injury matters, including truck accident cases, and is fully committed to representing victims injured in these accidents.

Truck accidents and the injuries that can result are serious. A knowledgeable attorney can work diligently to build strong cases and fight for compensation for those injured.

Types of Truck Accidents

Denton truck accident lawyers are experienced in handing with several different forms of accidents including:

  • Truck rollovers
  • Car and truck collisions
  • Jackknifes
  • Crashes due to blind spots
  • Pedestrian and truck collisions
  • Tire malfunctions
  • T-bone collisions

What Injuries Can Result from a Truck Accident?

The sheer size of most trucks can cause severe injuries or property damage to pedestrians and drivers. If a person sustained personal injuries such as broken bones, severed limbs, internal bleeding, or head trauma, they will likely incur substantial medical costs and may need to take time away from work.

Attorneys can pursue damages for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Medical costs

If a loved one passed away as the result of a truck accident, family members may be able to initiate a wrongful death lawsuit. Texas law permits a spouse, parent, or child of the decedent to file a suit. It may be important to consult with a Denton truck accident lawyer.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be caused by a number of factors. Some of those include:

  • Fatigue
  • Poor training
  • Negligence
  • Recklessness
  • Failure to adhere to road rules
  • Intoxication
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding

Commercial truck drivers are subject to federal guidelines and expected to undergo training. Despite these safety measures, not all truck drivers adequately follow these rules. Inexperience can also contribute to an accident.

If the accident is not the truck driver’s fault, other factors such as defective truck equipment, severe weather, or poor road conditions may cause an accident.

Based on the facts of a case, a Denton truck accident lawyer can evaluate whether there is a suit solely against the truck driver or also against other parties.

Consult with a Denton Truck Accident Lawyer

After being injured in a truck accident, it is important to seek legal counsel from a Denton truck accident lawyer. A lawyer can help preserve evidence from the scene of the accident. It is also advisable to consult with a lawyer before signing a settlement agreement from an insurance company. It is typically in the insurance company’s best interest to settle as inexpensively as possible. Denton truck attorneys can advocate for you to receive the money you deserve.

You should initiate your truck accident case no more than two years after the date of the accident to comply with the Texas statute of limitations. You may be barred from bringing your personal injury or wrongful death claim after this time frame.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
