Filing a truck accident claim is not as simple as recovering damages after a minor fender-bender.
Keep in mind that there are no caps on economic and non-economic damages in Texas so the settlement you can get depends on the severity of your injuries as well as on the skill of your attorney.
Unfortunately, St. Louis has a higher rate of deaths from traffic accidents involving speeding drivers than most every other city in the United States.
If, for instance, the company failed to check the driver’s record and it turns out he had a history of aggressive driving, your lawyer can claim it was a case of negligence.
Your lawyer will review the police report, visit the crash scene and talk to eyewitnesses to get a better understanding of what really happened.
If the driver is found to be negligent, the company will have to pay for medical treatment, lost income and wages, property damage, and non-economic damages for pain and suffering.
You are entitled to compensatory damages, which can be economic and non-economic.
If your accident lawyers discover that there was some type of mechanical failure involved, they will ask to see documents on when the truck was last inspected.
