Austin Truck Accident Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions

Many of our clients were injured by large trucks while driving on I-35. While Texas economies boom, that means more cars, trucks and people. Mopac even has a mock Twitter account outlining the daily traffic woes. It’s no secret that accidents and transportation are a major problem for Austinites. What isn’t always as obvious is what to do after a truck accident or who to seek for help.

How much can I get from my truck accident case?

In personal injury claims, a settlement’s value can be calculated by adding up the value of the medical bills, lost wages, and other money spent on recovery. Then, “pain and suffering” claims may be added. These are typically calculated from a multiplier of general damages.

Don’t forget that your settlement will depend upon liability in the crash, your history, and the history of the truck driver. Investigations of the crash may be a factor including toxicology reports, driving history, and dangerous driving risks.

Every case is different. McMinn Law Firm settled a case in 2018 in which a man was injured when a truck driver fell asleep. What happened next wasn’t that the tractor trailer drove into the client’s lane, but rather into the guard rail. The guard rail was carried into several lanes of traffic. Unable to maneuver around the object, the client drove over the guardrail while traveling at 65 mph. Whether your injury happened due to a fatigued truck driver, an unsafe turn by a UPS truck driver, or a commercial truck speeding to their next job, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you sort out options.

Why should I hire a lawyer? I got an offer and need to pay medical bills ASAP.

If you have pending medical bills it may be tempting to settle a semi-truck accident claim quickly. But there are a few reasons waiting to settle can save you money in the long run.

You may not be fully aware of your injuries.
Additional treatments may be needed before the injuries can heal.
The victim experienced unexpected pain and anguish in their personal life.
If you believe that your insurance adjuster is looking out for you in settlement proceedings – think again. Don’t forget that your insurance adjuster is employed by the insurance company. Their purpose is to protect the insurance company’s bottom line.

You can avoid the risk of accepting a settlement claim that doesn’t fully cover you if you wait. An experienced personal injury attorney will help you to make the right decision on when to settle. The answer to “should I hire a lawyer?” is often “yes.”

What happens after I hire a truck accident lawyer?

Attorneys at McMcminn law firm know how to negotiate with the many parties that could be involved in the case. Unlike with a car vs car accident, a truck accident could have happened because of many more factors. A potentially overlooked, but very important area of safety is the weight and handling of the freight. How goods are transported from Point A to Point B is regulated by the Office of Freight Management and Operations in the U.S. Department of Transportation. This office conducts research and provides regulations for the transportation of goods industry. When trucking companies fail to comply with these regulations, they can put the community at risk.
