Cars are no match for a commercial truck. Accidents involving a semi can result in serious injuries and even the wrongful death of a victim. It is understandable that the victims of such an accident may not immediately be worried about dealing with the legal process. The fact of the matter, however, is that you and your loved ones must protect your rights to recover lost income, medical bills, and other damages you have incurred. Joey Tellez is a Laredo, Texas truck accident lawyer assisting those who have been injured by the negligence of others. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of service and our firm is ready to assist you. Contact us today to speak with an attorney.
Commercial trucking accident attorney assisting victims in Laredo, Texas and its surrounding areas
The victims of commercial trucking accidents can suffer extreme harm. Such harm can include paralysis, the loss of motor skills, and wrongful death in extreme cases. This means that victims will require compensation for all medical bills incurred, the cost of any future medical care, past and future lost wages, as well as money for pain and suffering. Such cases can involve multiple defendants. These defendants include the truck’s driver, the owner, and potentially the company for which cargo was being delivered. A jury will decide the issues of fault and the amount of money each defendant should be required to pay.
The first step after a truck accident is for the victim’s lawyer to contact the relevant insurance carriers. This will allow counsel to deal with the carriers directly while the victim undergoes medical care. Once medical professionals have reached a long-term prognosis then the victim’s damages can be reasonably calculated. A settlement demand will be sent to the carriers and, if a fair resolution cannot be reached, the matter will proceed to litigation. A lawsuit will begin with the filing of a Petition which names each of the defendants. Discovery (the process by which information is gained from the other side in a lawsuit) will be used to determine the extent to which each potential defendant is liable and to identify other possible parties. If necessary the case will proceed to trial. Litigating such matters is highly complicated and it is important that you retain counsel experienced in handling such cases.
Joey Tellez is a Laredo truck accident attorney who has been licensed since 2002. Once retained we will immediately begin identifying all possible defendants and will contact the relevant insurance carriers. We will stay in close contact with your treating physicians and will retain the medical and vocational experts necessary to prove your damages. Our firm will utilize the discovery process to gain internal documents, employment records, and other information from the trucking company to gain an understanding of whether or not the driver was adequately supervised and whether he or she had a history of unsafe driving. If a resolution cannot be reached then Joey will not hesitate to take your case to trial. He will ensure that you know what to expect from the process and that you are prepared to go forward. We do not shy away from litigation and we are ready to assist you. Contact us today.
