There are a wide range of factors that contribute to trucking accidents. Many are based on a truck driver’s negligence. When the truck operator is careless, they are more likely to perform dangerous maneuvers that cause crashes. However, a trucker is not always responsible. Other issues such as improper loading, lack of maintenance, and vehicle defects can lead to crashes.
Some of the most common causes of semi-truck accidents in Texas include:
After being hurt in a truck accident, you may not know what went wrong. You were not in the trucker’s cab, so you do not know what the trucker did. Also, the truck driver may have done everything right despite the circumstances. The best way to find out what caused the crash is to hire a truck accident law firm. An attorney from Begum Law Group will immediately begin to investigate the crash. Preserving evidence is a significant concern during these cases, and we always take steps to collect all the necessary materials.

You probably want to know who is responsible for the accident and your injuries. You want to know who is at fault for you getting hurt, and who is going to compensate you. Our semi-truck accident lawyers understand that you want answers, and compensation to cover your medical expenses and move on in life.
We are here to conduct an in-depth investigation into the semi-truck accident, so we can find out who is liable. In many cases, the truck driver was negligent. If they are employed by a trucking company, then ultimately this business is liable. It could also be that the trucking company or another business, such as a maintenance provider, did something wrong.
Depending on the circumstances, the party responsible for your injuries may be the:
When you are injured in a truck accident, you need to work with an attorney who has specific experience in commercial vehicle crashes. There are major differences between car accidents and truck accidents. The latter typically leads to a greater amount of property damage and significant bodily injuries. These result in more substantial settlements and jury verdicts.
Another important difference between car and truck crashes are federal trucking regulations. Commercial motor carriers, truck drivers, and trucks are heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
The FMCSA regulates:
These are only a handful of the rules truckers, and their employers must adhere to. When our truck accident attorneys investigate the crash that caused you harm, we will look through every piece of evidence to determine if a federal regulation has been violated. This could be evidence we use during your case to establish liability and fight for you to receive compensation.
If you were hurt in a truck accident, you are now facing significant medical bills. You may have multiple bills from a single emergency room visit. You may have bills for prescription medications, such as painkillers. You will be billed for follow up visits and for any additional medical treatments. Depending on your injuries, you may even have to pay for in-home care, medical equipment, physical therapy, and other medical needs. On top of these new bills, you will probably be out of work for a time. When you are not getting paid, you may be forced to pull money from savings just to make ends meet.
When another person or business is at fault for the crash and your injuries, then you deserve to receive compensation for your financial losses. You also deserve to be compensated for your physical and psychological injuries.
To fight to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible, call our semi-truck accident attorneys for help. We will work hard for you to receive a truck accident settlement that covers your:
When you are trying to obtain compensation after a trucking accident, the motor carrier’s insurance company will be involved. You should not speak with the insurance adjuster without legal representation. This can lead to many insurance issues that may result in your claim being denied or your settlement reduced.
After a trucking accident, it is important that you understand the role of the insurer. An insurance company is not there to help you. It is not looking out for your best interests. Instead, the insurer is there to protect its policyholder—the motor carrier. It will also be acutely concerned with protecting their profits. Insurers are big businesses that are consistently focused on making more money. They do so by denying insurance claims when they can and limiting payouts to valid claimants.
Once you realize that an insurer would gladly deny your claim or only offer a minimal amount of compensation, you understand why it is better to have an experienced truck accident lawyer represent you. An insurer will use what you say against you whenever it can. To ensure you do not accidentally say something that suggests that you were at fault, you can have an attorney take the lead on communications with an insurer. By hiring a lawyer to handle your case, you reduce the likelihood of a miscommunication harming your claim.
Attorneys improve your chances of receiving and maximizing your truck accident settlement. Two reasons for this are that truck accident attorneys are prepared to negotiate your payout, and they are prepared to go to court. Threatening to file or actually filing a lawsuit can be very effective in getting you a settlement. Insurers realize it is better to settle for an appropriate amount than to deal with the time and expense of a trial. Skilled negotiations also are useful in ensuring the final settlement amount is more than an insurer’s first low-ball offer.
Additionally, another potential insurance issue is allegations of contributory negligence. The truck driver or company may claim that you were also at fault. The insurer may latch on to this idea and try to deny or limit your claim. By hiring an experienced attorney, you have someone to fight back against this defense. At Begum Law Group, we will strive to prove you did not contribute to the accident, or if you did, it was a minimal amount.
At Begum Law Group, we also represent families who have lost loved ones in deadly truck accidents. If your spouse, parent, or child was killed in a collision with a commercial vehicle, do not hesitate to call us. We will thoroughly investigate the situation and gather evidence of fault and liability. We can represent close family members or the personal representative of your loved one’s estate in a wrongful death claim.
We will fight for your family to receive compensation, including for:
