Collisions between commercial trucks and passenger cars are some of the most catastrophic for victims. The average 18-wheeler can carry tens of thousands of pounds of cargo. Up against the average passenger car, weighing between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds, an 80,000-plus pound large truck can cause extensive damage. Victims often suffer catastrophic and life-altering personal injuries.

Most truck accident cases in Texas name the trucking company as the defendant or at-fault party. Truck companies in the US are vicariously liable for the accidents that involve their trucks and drivers, in most cases. If a negligent truck driver caused your wreck, the company that employed that driver will most likely be responsible.
Trucking companies have extensive resources to put toward disputing injury liability. It can be difficult to go up against the truck company’s insurer unrepresented. Once you hire an attorney, however, the insurance company will have no choice but to take your claim seriously. Your lawyer can aggressively negotiate for fair results on your behalf.
One of the first steps toward obtaining financial compensation for a Laredo truck accident is identifying its cause. Texas’ fault-based car insurance laws require proof or evidence of fault. You or your truck accident lawyer will need to establish someone else’s fault to obtain compensation from that party’s insurance company. Truck accidents in Texas can occur for a number of reasons.
Determining fault and identifying the defendant are tasks we can complete for you at Villarreal & Begum Law Firm. Our truck accident lawyers know how to investigate accidents and search for evidence of fault, such as the truck’s black box or the driver’s employment records. When you trust us with your case, you can rest and focus on healing while we go up against the correct defendant on your behalf.
