Austin Truck Accident Lawyer

Were you or a loved one involved in a truck accident that you believe another party caused? You may have a compensation case. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Austin truck accident lawyers can help you out. They can perform an investigation into the motor vehicle collision to find out who the liable party is and what damages you may be eligible to recover.

You may have sustained severe injuries and cannot drive your car due to the damage incurred. We do not want you to undergo further stress. So, we will gladly take all the legal work off your shoulders. This way, you can focus on resting and recovering. You should not feel responsible for representing yourself after experiencing a preventable accident.

How Can An Austin Truck Accident Attorney Help?

We are here to step in after you have unnecessarily suffered injuries due to a negligent party’s action or inaction. Your main priority right now is healing. It is our job to take on the work that potentially leads to compensation.

Some of the ways we work for you include:

  • Identifying the liable party
  • Filing your claim
  • Negotiating with a claims adjuster if necessary
  • Taking the case to court if negotiating fails
  • Making in-court appearances for you
  • Ordering the police report
  • Collecting evidence, including photographs, traffic/surveillance camera footage (if available), black box data, and more
  • Taking witness’s statements
  • Managing communications with the insurance companies, legal teams, and anyone else involved
  • Assessing and calculating your losses
  • Defending your rights
  • Hiring an accident reconstructionist and/or medical expert

You will receive frequent updates regarding the case’s progress. You will never have to wonder about the status of your case and how your future looks. Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want to know where your case is at.

Handling Settlement Negotiations

Your truck accident lawyer may succeed in settlement negotiations with an insurance adjuster and not have to take your case to court. However, the insurer could refuse to pay you the compensation you deserve, extending the process. If this happens, your truck accident lawyer will go to court for you and continue building your case.

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Austin truck accident lawyers can file your case soon after your accident if we cannot achieve a fair settlement. It is not ideal for a legal professional to have little time before the statute of limitations expires to make your case.

They must have as much time as they need to gather evidence, obtain vital documentation, and interview witnesses. We want to attain the settlement or court award you are entitled to.

¿Qué es el plazo de prescripción en Texas?

Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, victims of truck crashes typically only have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. You could take this legal action against the liable party or their insurance company.

This may seem like plenty of time, but it isn’t. Consider all the work there is to accomplish for you to have a robust case. We recommend you get started on your case as soon as possible.

Common Damages in a Truck Accident That You Could Recover

You may qualify to collect an abundance of damages after your Austin truck accident. One of our lawyers can figure out what economic and non-economic damages you are owed. 

Typical damages in a truck accident look like this:

  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Mental anguish
  • Medical expenses (past, current, and future)
  • Lost income/diminished earnings
  • Loss of pleasure in life
  • Damage to your vehicle that requires repair or replacement
  • Temporary/permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Trauma
  • Physical therapy
  • Counseling

We will advocate for you and fight for the recovery you and your family deserve following an auto accident rooted in negligence.

In Cases of Wrongful Death Accidents

If you lost a loved one in a truck accident, the same statute applies to your case. In a wrongful death case, your family may be able to recover compensation. The following are all compensable losses:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • The loss of your deceased loved one’s income
  • The loss of companionship/guidance

We know that no monetary award can bring a beloved family member back. However, easing the financial burden can help during this difficult time.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Semi-Truck Accident?

Just like in a car accident, the liable party may not be the driver. There are a few parties who may hold responsibility for the crash you were involved in. Take a look at who we may ultimately hold accountable for your damages:

  • The driver: Of course, the driver may have been the negligent party in the accident. They may have been distracted or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, causing the crash.
  • The driver’s employer: If an employer, for example, pushed a driver to meet unreasonable demands, the employer could be held responsible for the accident. For instance, the driver could have become fatigued due to pressure to arrive at their destination early.
  • The truck’s manufacturer: If the truck had a defective part that contributed to the accident, the manufacturer may be at fault for their negligence.
  • The truck’s mechanic: A mechanic may be to blame for the crash if they did not properly fix a part of the truck. They might also have unnecessarily fixed a working part.
  • A cargo-loading company: A cargo-loading company could be liable if they were negligent in loading the truck. This act can create an imbalance of weight that leads to accidents.

Investigation into the truck accident can determine who is at fault and who to pursue compensation from. We are not afraid to go up against powerful lawyers the trucking company employs or the company’s insurance provider.

Proving the Liable Party’s Negligence

To have a shot at winning you fair compensation, we must establish the liable party’s negligence. We do this by showing that this party:

  • Owed you a duty of care
  • Breached their duty of care
  • Caused your accident through their breach of duty
  • Holds responsibility for your damages

To have a shot at winning you fair compensation, we must establish the liable party’s negligence. We do this by showing that this party:

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer in Austin?

We help injured parties or loved ones who have lost someone. Your lawyer will fight to hold negligent parties accountable for their wrongful actions. We take cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means you pay us nothing upfront and out of pocket. We only get paid if you do. If we do not win you any compensation, we get paid nothing.

What if My Car Was the Only One Damaged?

Some accidents seem like single-car accidents on paper. Actually, they happen due to the negligence of another party. You might have had to swerve out of the way of a reckless driver. This could have caused you to crash into another car, pole, or building. This kind of accident is similar to the one featured in KRIS 6 News‘ reporting.

We can hunt down the other driver, even if they drove away.

What To Do After a Truck Accident

If you were injured in an accident with a truck driver or any other liable party, there are several actions you can take to get started on your case. Our commercial truck accident lawyer recommends that you:

  • Seek medical care right away: You don’t want to give the liable party any opportunity to assume you are not as injured as you say you are. Go to the doctor right away and have your injuries treated. You should stick with the treatment plan you are recommended so that your injuries heal to the fullest extent. Also, hold on you your medical records. They can provide useful case evidence.
  • Avoid speaking to insurers: You do not have to give a statement to the insurance company after an accident. They may try to take your words out of context in an effort to offer you a lower settlement than you deserve. You can politely decline any communication with the insurance company and let your attorney handle it for you.
  • Gather evidence: If your injuries allow, collect evidence at the accident scene. Take photos of your property damage and the injuries you sustained. You may also want to collect the contact information of anyone who witnessed the semi-truck accident. If you are hurt and can’t gather evidence, our personal injury attorneys will handle this task for you.
