Are Texas Truck Accident Claims More Difficult Than Car Accident Claims?


Generally speaking, commercial trucking accident claims are much more complex and much more specialized than the average auto accident claim. This is primarily due to complicating matters such as employer liability, state regulations, and the fact that you are dealing with a company versus a single-person’s insurance company.

If you have been involved in a trucking accident, it is essential that you hire an attorney with experience handling and winning trucking accident lawsuits.

How Is a Trucking Accident Claim Different from a Car Crash Claim?

The first thing to understand about trucking accident claims is that the playing field is not level. Typically, large trucking companies have teams of lawyers whose only job is to investigate and challenge trucking accident claims with the goal of limiting or eliminating the trucking company’s liability. These entities also have the financial resources to fight long, hard legal battles in a way that leaves individuals at a disadvantage.

Beyond all that, trucking accident claims are further complicated by the existence of complex trucking regulations as well as state and federal laws defining employer liability and the application of respondeat superior.

This is why you need an attorney who is familiar with trucking accident litigation. Thomas J. Henry has been successfully litigating trucking accident lawsuits for more than 25 years. Our commercial litigation attorneys understand the statutes regulating commercial trucking companies and their drivers. Combine that proficiency with the legal and financial resources that only the largest personal injury firm in Texas can provide, and you finally stand a chance of getting the compensation you justly deserve.
