How Your Corpus Christi Tow Truck Accident Might Have Occurred
There are many circumstances in which you could have been harmed in an accident with a tow truck.
Some possible reasons for your accident may include:
The Tow Truck Driver Was Distracted
The driver who hit you could have been admiring the scenery, on the phone, or eating behind the wheel. Roadway conditions can change in an instant, so drivers need to be vigilant.
The Tow Truck Driver Was Intoxicated
A driver should never operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Those who drive for a living have a big responsibility to keep their faculties sharp. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) affirms that alcohol use can reduce “thinking, reasoning and muscle coordination.”
The Tow Truck Driver Was Aggressive
Speeding, tailgating, and cutting other drivers off are considered aggressive driving actions. If your accident was caused by any of these situations, we can work to prove the other party’s fault.
None of the above are smart driving practices. Larger vehicles need more time to stop, and their weight makes them more dangerous in the event of a crash. Tow truck operators should know that they need to drive with caution and care. If a driver does not do so, they could be responsible for any injuries that they cause to others.

The Tow Truck Company Could Be Liable for Your Losses
The tow truck driver’s boss might have wanted them at another location and encouraged them to speed. You might have been hit in the process. Or, the tow truck driver might have hit you from behind due to ill-maintained brakes. The driver might have warned their employer that their rig needed a tune-up. However, the company might have willfully ignored this fact, making them negligent and liable for the accident. If a driver was traveling while on the clock, their employer could be liable in many instances.
To hold the trucking company (and any other party) liable for your losses, we must prove:
- The at-fault party had a duty of care to keep you safe;
- This duty was violated;
- This violation caused or contributed to your accident; and
- The accident caused your financial losses.

Ways You Can Help Your Case
After the accident, you should seek medical attention if you have not done so already. Not only does this ensure that you are safe, but we can use your diagnosis and medical records to affirm your testimony. If you wait to see a doctor, the other party and their insurance company could dispute the cause of your injuries.
Other things you can do to help your case include declining conversations with the insurance company and staying off of social media. There are many opportunities for the claims adjuster to take your words out of context and use them against you.
Finally, we encourage you to seek legal representation as soon as you can because of Texas’s statute of limitations. Per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, claimants typically have a two-year period to file motor vehicle accident lawsuits. The sooner you get in touch with our team, the sooner we can gather evidence, calculate your losses, and file your lawsuit in court (if one is necessary).
