Truck accidents in Brownsville are not only devastating, but they can be deadly as well. The size difference between a truck and regular passenger vehicles on the road many times mean that there will be significant injuries that will require an extensive recovery period or injuries that are permanent and will no longer allow a victim to continue to work. Juries are sensitive to this fact and the responsibilities a truck driver and his employer bear, as evidenced by a record $100 million payout to a truck accident victim in Texas recently.
You Must Take Appropriate Steps After a Truck Accident
When you are the victim of a truck accident in Brownsville, it is critical to seek legal representation as soon as possible so that you can start the process of healing from your injuries. A seasoned truck accident attorney must not only go about the business of proving a driver was at fault, but also look into whether or not other parties may be responsible as well. This can extend to the owners of the trucking firm who may not have followed state and federal regulations, the truck manufacturer who could bear responsibility if the truck is knowingly defective in some way, and possibly agencies who are responsible for maintaining roadways where the accident took place.
Once all responsible parties have been identified, then your attorney must begin the task of proving that one or all of these defendants were negligent and directly caused your injuries. Because there’s a good chance your attorney will be going up against a team of seasoned insurance company lawyers, preparation is critical. That means developing a sound and aggressive strategy that may include calling upon expert witnesses who can assist with interpretation of evidence, eyewitnesses who can help bolster your claim, and medical experts who will testify and support a claim for maximum compensation.
