Compensation for Your Losses

Justice You Deserve

The principle behind Texas injury law is simple: people who are harmed by the negligence of others deserve compensation for the losses caused by their injuries. Just how much compensation a party receives depends on many factors, such as:

  • The seriousness of your injuries
  • The evidence of liability
  • The experience and skill of your truck accident attorney in The Woodlands

Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law has decades of combined experience fighting hard for proper compensation payouts for its clients. The damages you will potentially receive will either be economic or non-economic, covering such losses as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Travel expenses for medical treatment
  • Homecare expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disability
  • Scarring and disfigurement

If your truck accident involved gross negligence or willful actions, your truck accident attorney in The Woodlands can potentially seek punitive damages on top of your economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish and to deter future similar actions. Behavior in truck accident cases that is worthy of punitive damages includes drunk driving and purposefully crashing a big rig into another vehicle.

Proving Your Case

You may be entitled to damages, but you must build a case that proves that you deserve them. This is why it’s important to hire an experienced truck accident attorney in The Woodlands to handle your claim. An experienced The Woodlands truck accident lawyer knows who to go after and what it takes to build a successful case for damages.

Truck Driver

Truck driver negligence typically manifests as unsafe actions that are against traffic regulations, including:

  • Drinking and driving
  • Driving while distracted
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failure to abide by out-of-service regulations
  • Failure to complete pre-inspection vehicle safety checks
  • Speeding
  • Failure to abide by traffic regulations

A truck driver can also be held liable for improperly securing a trailer load or transporting cargo larger or heavier than allowed.

Trucking Company

The trucking company that employs the trucker may also be held liable for the trucker’s negligence under the doctrine of vicarious liability. There need not be any acts of negligence on the part of the employer to face liability in this manner. However, the trucker must indeed be an employee of the trucking company and not an independent contractor.

Additionally, the trucking company can also be held liable for its acts of negligence that caused an accident, including:

  • Failure to screen employees properly
  • Failure to provide safe vehicles and equipment
  • Allowing or forcing drivers to drive too many hours per day
  • Improper supervision

A trucking company may also face liability for failure to pull problematic drivers from the road.

Shipping Company

Shipping companies often contract drivers from trucking companies to move their loads. During the process, the shipping company often loads the cargo while the driver waits. This makes the company responsible for accidents caused by improperly tied-down loads, improperly packaged cargo, and the use of improper or inferior materials for tying down loads.

Truck Repair Shop

Big riggers depend on truck repair shops to fix and maintain their vehicles. If a repair or parts replacement is done below standard and a crash ensues as a result, the repair shop may be on the hook for damages.

Vehicle and Parts Makers

Manufacturers of trucks and truck parts and equipment earn grand profits in the market and are thus required to ensure that their products are safe. Unfortunately, faulty trucks and truck parts often cause truck accidents, exposing their makers to liability for damages.

Whoever is to blame for your truck accident, you can rely on Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law to identify them and hold them accountable for damages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to the most common questions. If you have more questions after perusing the information, feel free to call Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law for help from The Woodlands truck accident lawyers.

Is there a statute of limitations for truck accident lawsuits?

Yes. Generally, there is a two-year statute of limitations that controls truck accident cases in Texas. (*However, always speak directly to an attorney to learn the exact deadlines that apply to your potential claims. For example, when the victim is a minor, the statute of limitations does not start running until the minor victim reaches their 18th birthday.)

How long will my truck accident case take?

It’s impossible to give you an answer until The Woodlands truck accident lawyers from our team review your case. In many relatively straightforward truck accident cases, the victim can see compensation in as little as two or three months from the date of the accident. In other cases, however, complexities lead to longer settlement times. If a case must go to trial, your case can take up to and over a year. That said, the majority of truck accident cases get settled before a trial is necessary.

At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we understand our injured clients’ need for funds. So we fight hard to recover the money they need in as timely a manner as possible. Sometimes, however, court is necessary.

What should I bring to my free consultation?

Free consultations are essential to your truck accident claim. During your consultation, your truck accident lawyer in The Woodlands will evaluate your case. To do this, they will need you to bring various things to the meeting, such as:

  • The accident and/or police report
  • Medical records
  • Photos and video of the accident scene
  • Repair and replacement estimates for motorcycle damage
  • Medical bills and account balances
  • Receipts and bills for expenses related to the accident
  • Pay stubs and your work schedule
  • Your recorded version of the accident
  • A journal of how your injuries have affected your day-to-day life

The more information your truck accident lawyer in The Woodlands has about your crash, the more clarity they will be able to give you about the viability of your case and its potential trajectory. Your truck accident lawyer will also be able to give you more information about possible compensation when you bring as many of these items as possible.

Should I accept an insurance company offer for my injuries?

If an experienced The Woodlands truck accident attorney has not seen and approved the offer, you are strongly advised to refrain from accepting the offer, at least initially. Insurance companies are notorious for convincing accident victims to accept low-ball settlement offers, especially if a victim does not have an experienced The Woodlands truck accident attorney fighting for them.

With a truck accident lawyer in The Woodlands representing you, insurance companies will know that they can’t get away with subpar compensation payouts.

How long will it take to get compensated for my losses?

How long it takes to get compensated for truck accident injuries typically depends on the complexity of the case. Cases with many issues to resolve are going to take far longer than cases with straightforward issues and fact patterns.

When you have The Woodlands truck accident attorneys from Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law on your side, you can expect them to work hard to resolve your case as quickly as possible without compromising the damages payout you deserve.
