Hernandez Jr. PLLC is ready to jump in and help you seek the justice and compensation you’re owed for this horrendous experience.
Driving an 18-wheeler truck is a huge responsibility, and most truckers take it seriously. However, sometimes truckers can make negligent errors that cause others to be seriously hurt or killed. In some instances, others could have also been to blame for causing a truck collision besides to the truck driver.
For instance, a trucking company can sometimes be held liable when their drivers cause accidents. Sometimes the trucking company breaks commercial trucking laws, which means they should be held legally responsible for your damages as well. Your truck crash claim can keep these truckers and their companies from harming other innocent people.
It’s important to find out what caused your truck crash and who is liable for it. Your Corpus Christi tractor-trailer wreck lawyer will help you to hold all those who contributed to your accident legally responsible.
Below, this is a list of common causes of trucking crashes in Corpus Christi and who could be responsible in each situation.
Once you’ve determined what caused your wreck, you will have a better understanding of who is liable for it. If the trucker’s company is liable for your accident, it can be challenging to get the company to admit to fault. The truck company is in the business of making money, so they don’t want to be sued because of negligence on their part.
They will probably try to deny your claim and will use their legal team and insurance company to back them up. Going up against a truck or loading company can be intimidating, but your Corpus Christi semi-truck crash lawyers aren’t scared. We know how to prove fault by collecting evidence, and we will do everything possible to convince the truck company’s insurer that they owe you money.
Our firm will help you to collect proof that shows you weren’t the one responsible for causing the vehicle crash. We can use witness statements, police and crash reports, trucking logs, cell phone records, photo evidence, video recordings, and other evidence to prove the fault of the party that hurt you.
No matter who was to blame for your truck accident, your lawyer will do everything to see that they are held to account for it.
Dealing with insurance companies is no easy task, but your legal team from our firm is up to the challenge. We negotiate with insurers on a daily basis, so we can sniff out a rotten deal. We won’t let you accept less than fair value for your injury claim, something you might not be able to spot without help.
Insurance companies have a tendency to take advantage of tractor-trailer crash victims who don’t have a legal team backing them up. They can use many different tactics to try to get out of paying your claim or to at least lower your claim’s worth so they won’t lose so much money.
None of these tactics are anything new to your Corpus Christi big rig wreck lawyer at our office. We will handle the insurance negotiating so you can avoid the stress and hassle of this challenging process.
