Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of truck accidents in Texas?
Truck accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, though they are generally caused by negligence. In many cases, they are caused by negligent truck employers who fail to ensure that their truck drivers have received adequate training before starting their jobs. These accidents are also frequently caused by negligent truck company employees who carelessly load the truck, causing the truck to become unbalanced, which can lead to serious tip-over accidents. Unfortunately, however, these accidents are most frequently caused by negligent truckers who either drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drive while fatigued, text while driving, or fail to account for the sheer size and weight of their truck. That being said, the bottom line is that if you are someone who has been injured due to another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will be entitled to financial compensation.
How long will I have to do sue if I am injured in a truck accident in Texas?
If you are injured in a truck accident in Texas, you must not wait to file your personal injury claim. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, which means that under most circumstances, you will have to file your claim against the liable party within two years from the date of your accident. If you wait any longer than two years from the date of your accident to sue, you will most likely be time-barred from doing so. Our firm is here to help you through every step of the process ahead–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
