This is the first post in a series which will be addressing the issue of how to deal with Laredo, Texas auto accidents which involve commercial vehicles. I am writing on this topic due to the fact that such cases can become highly complicated. This level of complication can possibly result in a victim failing to name all of the possible defendants. It can also result in a victim not receiving all of the compensation to which they are entitled if their case is handled incorrectly. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will assist people in better understanding their situation. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a personal injury attorney. If you are a loved one have been injured then contact my office today to speak with a Laredo commercial vehicle accident lawyer. My office also serves other parts of South Texas.
I will be addressing a number of topics over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:
- Why commercial vehicle accidents may involve multiple defendants
- Settling an injury case which involves a commercial vehicle
- The importance of discovery in such cases and how it can be used to establish liability
- How damages are calculated in injury cases involving commercial vehicles
- Taking such a case to trial
There are multiple reasons why I am choosing to address these topics. First, unlike traditional car accidents, cases which involve commercial vehicles can result in liability against the driver, the company who owns the vehicle, and possibly the company who contracted the owner. Second, settling such cases can involve lengthy negotiations as your attorney will have to deal with representatives for each possible defendant. Third, it is important to understand that, depending on the nature of the case, a corporate defendant may be required to pay punitive damages. Fourth, knowing what to expect from the trial process can help to ensure that the matter goes more smoothly.
I cannot stress enough the fact that you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately if you or a loved one have been involved in an accident. Your representative will take immediate steps to ensure that your interests remain protected. Also, given the complex nature of such cases it is important that your representative begin work on the case as soon as possible.
