This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of Laredo, Texas auto accidents which involve commercial vehicles. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that many victims may feel overwhelmed in such situations. This is understandable due to the fact that they will be dealing with corporate defendants. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you require assistance then contact my office today to speak with a personal injury lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- The involvement of multiple defendants in commercial vehicle accidents
- Settling injury cases involving commercial drivers
- The use of discovery in injury cases
- Calculating damages in a commercial vehicle case
- Attending trial in such matters
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, such cases will implicate the driver, as well as the owner of the vehicle. Matters are further complicated in that the owner may face additional causes of action for negligent hiring and supervision. Second, settling such a case can take a substantial amount of time due to the fact that the long-term prognosis of the victim must be reasonably ascertained before a demand for payment can be made. Third, discovery will be vital to establishing the practices and procedures of the company as well as the liability of the driver. Fourth, damages in such cases can require complex calculations due to the inclusion of multiple defendants. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process can help to ensure that things go smoothly.
One point I stressed in each of these articles is the need to contact an experienced attorney to assist you in such cases. Matters which involve corporate defendants can quickly become complex and if you do not methodically build a case then you may be at a disadvantage at trial. Retaining counsel, with experience in handling such matters, can increase your chances of recovery. I am a Laredo accident lawyer with experience in handling such cases.
