Why a Truck Accident Attorney

Choosing a Legal Professional to Handle Your McAllen Truck Accident Claim

Being involved in a truck accident can be a frightening and painful experience. It can also leave one feeling confused and helpless, particularly when it comes time to file an insurance claim. Insurance companies are notorious for offering low settlements, undervaluing claims and even delaying payment. In a truck accident, there are added complexities because a large trucking company may be involved. With considerable resources and sometimes even in-house legal teams to handle personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits stemming from accidents their vehicles and truck drivers are involved in, trucking companies are powerful adversaries that must be dealt with in a precise and aggressive manner.

Serious Truck Collisions Require Serious Legal Counsel

Not every traffic accident case requires an attorney's attention. Minor collisions that cause property damage alone can often be resolved without too much trouble. This may leave a truck accident victim wondering whether to involve an attorney. Of course every case is different and this will be a choice you must make for yourself, based on your needs and concerns, but you may wish to involve an attorney if:

  • You were seriously injured in the accident;
  • You accumulated considerable medical bills from your injuries;
  • You missed a good deal of work due to your injuries;
  • Your overall quality of life and ability to work have been impacted;
  • Your claim has been unreasonably delayed or denied;
  • The cause of the accident is being disputed; or
  • You have run into other difficulties related to your case.

It is not uncommon for a truck driver or trucking company to try to deny responsibility for a collision. When the cause of an accident is in question, an attorney can work to investigate the crash and then build evidence that supports the liability of the at-fault party (or parties). Collecting evidence and presenting this evidence in a clear and compelling manner can help establish liability so you can recover maximum compensation from the appropriate parties.

In addition to determining cause and establishing liability, a McAllen truck accident attorney can work to prove the true value of your claim to recover maximum economic and non-economic damages. By working with medical professionals, economists, psychologists and other expert witnesses, an attorney can put a fair value on your claim and then pursue this. Of course, no amount of money can make up for the pain and emotional trauma associated with a serious truck accident – particularly if you lost a loved one – but it can help you rebuild.
