I had previously left a one star review because, come to find out, the medical provider I went to for treatment after the collision was talking about balance billing me. Mr. Dashner himself called me and explained to me that they can’t do that and told me he would call them and straighten that out tomorrow. I appreciate him taking the time to call me and find out why I wasn’t happy and make sure the place I went to for treatment isn’t trying to pull a fast one one me.

I hired the Dashner Law Firm to represent me in an auto accident that I was in that resulted in a lot of medical bills. The insured that hit me didn’t have the coverage to cover all of the bills. The Dashner Law Firm worked with the hospital, doctors and chiropractic firms to reduce the amount I owed and was able to settle with the insured’s insurance company to get them all paid. The process was easy and they were extremely professional. I would highly recommend the Dashner Law Firm.

  • Medical expenses, including hospital bills, surgery costs, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages or income due to time taken off work for recovery.
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress and psychological trauma.
  • Property damage, if clothing or personal belongings were damaged during the incident.

Do I need to hire a Texas dog bite attorney?

While you’re not legally required to hire a Texas attorney, having legal representation can significantly improve your chances of obtaining fair compensation. A dog bite attorney can navigate the complexities of personal injury law, negotiate with insurance companies, and advocate for your rights in court if necessary.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a dog bite lawsuit in Texas?

Is the Trucking Company’s Insurance Responsible for the Financial Damages Caused by a Truck Accident?

In many cases, the trucking company’s insurance is responsible for financial damages caused by a truck accident, especially if the truck driver is found to be at fault. However, determining liability and responsibility in truck accidents can be more complex than in standard passenger vehicle collisions. Here’s why:

Employment Relationship: If the truck driver is an employee of the trucking company and was acting within the scope of their employment at the time of the accident, the trucking company (and by extension, their insurance) is typically held liable for damages under the legal doctrine of “respondeat superior” or “vicarious liability.”

Can I Recover Compensation for My Pain and Suffering after a Truck Accident?

Yes, in many jurisdictions, including Texas, if you’ve been involved in a truck accident due to someone else’s negligence, you can typically seek compensation for both your economic and non-economic damages. “Pain and suffering” falls under the category of non-economic damages.

Here’s a closer look at what this means:

Economic Damages: These are the tangible, out-of-pocket expenses you’ve incurred as a result of the accident. They include medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, property damage, and any other monetary losses directly related to the accident.

Non-Economic Damages: These are intangible damages that don’t have a direct monetary value but represent the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident. “Pain and suffering” is a term used to describe the physical pain and emotional anguish a victim may endure after an accident. It can encompass a wide range of issues, including:

  • Physical pain and discomfort
  • Emotional and psychological trauma (like anxiety, depression, or PTSD)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life or diminished quality of life
  • Scarring or permanent physical limitations

How Does a Trial Lawyer Help My Case?

A trial lawyer, often referred to as a litigator, plays a crucial role in representing and advocating for clients involved in disputes that may lead to litigation or are already before the courts. Here’s how a trial lawyer can help your case:

Expertise in Legal Procedure: Trial lawyers are well-versed in the intricacies of the legal process. They understand court rules, procedures, and deadlines, ensuring your case proceeds without unnecessary delays or procedural errors.

Evidence Gathering: A trial lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation, gathering evidence from various sources, which may include police reports, witness statements, expert testimonies, medical records, and more.

Legal Strategy Development: Based on the evidence and legal principles, the lawyer will develop a strategy tailored to the specifics of your case, aiming for the best possible outcome.

Representation in Court: If your case goes to trial, your lawyer will present arguments, examine and cross-examine witnesses, and challenge opposing evidence, all to ensure your side of the story is compellingly and accurately presented.

Negotiation Skills: Even when a case is poised for trial, settlements can occur at any stage. An experienced trial lawyer can negotiate with the opposing side, seeking a resolution that aligns with your best interests.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Texas Truck Accident Attorney?

Texas truck accident attorneys typically operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t have any upfront expenses. In essence, the attorney’s payment is derived from a portion of the compensation you receive. The percentage they take often varies based on when your case is settled. For instance, if the case progresses to trial, the attorney may command a higher percentage due to the increased time, effort, and resources invested. Conversely, if the case is settled without initiating a lawsuit, the attorney’s percentage is usually lower because of the reduced workload.

Should I Consult a Texas Truck Accident Lawyer if I am not sure who is Responsible?

Yes, if you are involved in a truck accident and are unsure about who is responsible, it is advisable to consult with a Texas truck accident lawyer. Here are some reasons why:

Expertise in Determining Liability: Truck accident lawyers have the experience and expertise to investigate the circumstances of the accident, gather evidence, and determine potential liability.

Complexity of Truck Accidents: Truck accidents can be more complex than typical car accidents. Multiple parties might be involved, such as the truck driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer of the truck or its parts, or the company responsible for loading the truck.

Dealing with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies often have teams of adjusters and attorneys working to minimize their liability. A truck accident lawyer can advocate on your behalf, ensuring your rights are protected and that you are not taken advantage of.

Potential for Significant Damages: Truck accidents often result in severe injuries or property damage. A lawyer can help ensure you pursue all potential sources of compensation, especially if long-term medical care is needed or there’s a loss of income.

Statute of Limitations: There’s a time limit (known as the statute of limitations) within which you must file a lawsuit after an accident. An attorney can ensure that all necessary actions are taken within this timeframe.

Who Determines Responsibility in a Texas Truck Crash?

In Texas, the responsibility is determined by a judge or jury. However, many cases are resolved before reaching trial, so the need for a judge or jury to assign responsibility is less frequent. Instead, skilled lawyers utilize the litigation process to negotiate settlements aligned with the case’s specifics. If a settlement isn’t reached, the case proceeds to trial, where responsibility is assigned based on the presented evidence.

Can I Receive Compensation for my Injuries if I am Partially Responsible for the Truck accident in Texas?

Yes, Texas follows the “modified comparative negligence” rule, which can affect compensation in personal injury claims when the injured party is found to be partially at fault for the accident. Here’s how it works:

Proportional Responsibility: If you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced by the percentage of your fault. For example, if you’re found to be 20% at fault and your damages amount to $100,000, you might be eligible to recover $80,000 (which is the total damages minus 20%).

51% Bar Rule: Under Texas law, if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for the accident, you may not be able to recover any compensation.

Are there specific laws that protect pedestrians in Texas?

What are common causes of pedestrian accidents?

Common causes of pedestrian accidents in Texas include distracted driving, speeding, failure to yield the right of way, impaired driving (e.g., DUI/DWI), and failure to obey traffic signals or signs.

How can I prove liability in a rideshare accident case in Texas?

Evidence such as police reports, witness statements, photos, and medical records can help establish liability. An experienced attorney can assist in collecting and presenting this evidence.

What steps should I take if the rideshare driver is uninsured or underinsured in Texas?

If the rideshare driver’s insurance coverage is insufficient to cover your damages, you may be able to make a claim with your own insurance company if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Can I sue the rideshare driver or company for compensation?

Yes, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the rideshare driver or the company if their negligence caused the accident in Texas. Consulting with an attorney is advisable to assess your options.

Whose insurance covers my injuries and damages in a rideshare accident?

If the rideshare driver is at fault or if the driver is uninsured or underinsured, the rideshare company’s insurance may cover your injuries and damages. Your own insurance policy could also come into play in certain situations.

Is rideshare insurance coverage available in Texas?

Yes, rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for drivers and passengers. Coverage varies depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident (app on, app off, or with a passenger).

What is the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in Texas?
