Who Could be Responsible for Your Accident?
Truck accidents can be complicated. Yours might have parties involved that you might not have considered. These might include the following:
The driver who hit you could have been engaging in reckless or negligent behavior that put you at risk. Some negligence behaviors can include:
- Intoxicated driving: Like taking alcohol, illegal substances, or over-the-counter medications while driving
- Distracted driving: Like texting and driving, looking at the scenery, or changing the radio station
- Aggressive driving: Tailgating, attempting to enter your lane without having enough room to do so, speeding, and weaving in and out of lanes
- Drowsy driving: Violating the Federal Highway Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)’s Hours of Service regulations that dictate how long the truck driver should have slept before working
The Trucking Company
The company that hired the truck driver could be at fault if the driver was working at the time of the accident. This could be the case if:
- The truck was not maintained properly and malfunctioned.
- The company did not give the driver a proper background check.
- The company encouraged speeding or imposed unreasonable delivery schedules.
- The company overloaded the driver’s vehicle and created unsafe conditions for driving.
Ways You Can Protect Your Right to Compensation
While your truck accident lawyer in Conroe, TX builds your case, consider doing the following:
Listening to Your Doctor
Your healing is important to finalizing a settlement. You might not want to pursue damages until you reach (or near) maximum medical improvement. This is because that is the point where you know what final treatments you might need in the future.
So, you do not want to ignore your doctor’s recommendations and lengthen the healing process. If you accept money from the insurer, and you require additional treatments, they would not be required to pay for those costs.
Staying Off Social Media
Insurance adjusters stalk accident victims’ accounts for opportunities to take words and photos out of context. Do not let them argue that you are not as injured as you actually are. Refrain from posting to social media until your case concludes.
Keeping Documents Organized
Do not throw away any receipts. We need all proof of your injuries and required treatments. Write down all details that you can remember from what happened before, during, and after the accident. Maintain a journal specifically to note your symptoms and how you are feeling after the accident.
