Any time two or more vehicles collide, there’s a high risk that someone will suffer serious injuries. And regardless of the vehicles involved in the accident, injury victims have the right to pursue compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and other accident-related expenses.

At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we know how complicated personal injury claims can be—even when there’s plenty of evidence that suggests one driver was in the wrong and the other wasn’t at fault. But when a big truck is involved in an accident, the level of complexity increases significantly.

That’s due to several reasons, including:

  • More people can be held responsible for truck accidents—Multiple parties may have hands in a truck accident, including the truck driver, the truck owner, and the truck company. Negligence on any of their parts can result in crashes, and its up to victims and their legal teams to find out the level of responsibility of each party.
  • There are more levels of negligence—Proving negligence in car accident cases often means finding out whether the other driver violated a traffic law. But with truck accident cases, violations aren’t always obvious, and sometimes crashes are caused by obscure violations of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration guidelines.

Those factors and more add up to create a situation where it’s vital to have an experienced Texas truck accident lawyer on your side. When you go it alone, you risk getting only a lowball settlement for your accident-related expenses—if you get a settlement at all. To help ensure you get the best possible results, consider contacting an attorney before taking on the insurance company without experienced help.
