The Attorneys You Need After A Serious Truck Accident
Any motor vehicle accident can lead to serious injuries or even death. But when you are struck by an 18-wheeler or another large commercial truck, you are much more likely to be seriously injured or killed. These vehicles are the biggest and heaviest ones on Texas roads, and smaller cars don’t stand a chance.
If you or someone you love has been involved in an 18-wheeler crash or commercial truck accident, you need an experienced, aggressive personal injury attorney on your side. It’s time to call Bonilla & Chapa, P.C. and speak with our lawyers, who have over 200 years of combined experience. We understand the problems that often arise after a truck accident, and we will fight to get you full and fair compensation for your injuries.
We Know How To Take On Trucking Companies And Insurers
Truck accidents are unfortunately common, which means that trucking companies are used to defending themselves against lawsuits. They, and their insurers, will fight to minimize or deny payouts to victims and their families.
For this reason, you need to hire an attorney with experience taking on serious car accident cases. Our lawyers are not afraid to demand that you get paid what your claim is worth, and we will gather all evidence necessary to support those claims in court. Evidence could include:
- The “black box” from inside the truck that gives information about how the vehicle was being driven right before the crash
- Careful study of the scene of the accident so that we can recreate the details
- Statements from witnesses who saw the crash
- Any video evidence of the crash taken from dash cameras or security cameras
Catastrophic Injury And Wrongful Death Compensation
If accident victims were seriously injured, we will submit medical records and hospital bills proving the extent of the injuries and the cost of treatment. We will also include likely future expenses such as ongoing medical treatment, physical therapy, lost work time and permanent disability.
If a loved one was killed in the crash, we can file a wrongful death claim against the trucking company and its insurers. We will seek compensation for medical bills, funeral/burial expenses, loss of lifetime income, loss of companionship and pain and suffering.
