Car & Truck Wrecks

With the large number of cars and trucks traveling Texas highways each day, auto wrecks are a common occurrence.

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Transportation, many truck wrecks happen because the driver is fatigued, sometimes in violation of Federal Regulations. Car crashes usually happen because someone is not paying attention. Drunk drivers and people using cell phones are particularly dangerous on highways. In other instances, collisions occur when drivers encounter severe weather conditions, confusing road signs, faulty highway construction or unexpected obstacles in the roadway. All told, the cost in property damage, injury to drivers and passengers and loss of life runs into millions of dollars.

How to Recover Damages from Negligent Parties

img-car-accidentsIf you are seriously injured or a family member dies in a car, truck, motorcycle or other vehicle wreck and someone else’s negligence caused the wreck, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. Getting medical attention is your first priority, for the sake of your well-being and documenting the extent of your injuries. The next important step is consulting an experienced personal injury attorney.

If you have a viable claim, the outcome will hinge on the actions you take immediately following the wreck. See a doctor and speak with personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

PIP covers all passengers in the insured vehicle. Coverage may extend to every member of a household, if they are injured in someone else’s vehicle, making it possible to recover from more than one PIP policy.
