The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Corpus Christi Company Vehicle Accident Attorney

An accident involving a commercial or company vehicle is not just another car accident. How do these crashes differ from other accidents?

In a company vehicle accident, multiple parties can be held responsible for your injuries, including the driver and even their employer. If a driver causes a wreck while in the course and scope of their job or as an agent of the company, their employer may be held accountable for the damages they caused.

Company vehicle crashes can also be significantly more complex and require the help of expert witnesses. For this reason alone, it is important to find a Corpus Christi company vehicle accident attorney with many years of experience successfully handling accident cases involving a negligent company or commercial entity.

Common Examples of Company Vehicles

Company vehicles come in all forms, shapes, and sizes. A company vehicle is any vehicle that is owned or operated by a company to be used by employees or agents of that company.

  • Cars, pickup trucks, SUVs, and vans
  • Garbage trucks, utility vehicles, tow trucks, and cement mixers
  • Semi-trucks, dump trucks, vehicle transporters, and refrigerated trucks
  • City and school buses, vehicles used for Uber and Lyft, and limos

It can be difficult to determine on your own if you have been hit by a company vehicle. Our Corpus Christi company vehicle accident attorneys can help discover the type of insurance coverage on the vehicle during the process of your case.

How are Companies Held Responsible for a Company Vehicle Accident?

In general, companies are responsible for the actions of employees or agents of the company while in the course and scope of their job.

Employers can be held liable for an accident due to:

  • Negligent hiring practices, including failure to verify proper licensing or certification
  • Negligent supervision of an employee
  • Failure to properly train an employee
  • Failure to maintain the vehicle involved in a crash

Large companies and corporations retain equally large defense teams to combat personal injury cases involving their employees and vehicles.

The risks of not contacting an attorney after an accident cannot be overstated. Simply put, you are jeopardizing your entire claim to recovery as well as future financial stability. Speaking to an insurer or insurance adjuster without consulting with an attorney can often result in:

  • Unintentional inconsistencies – Crashes and accidents are hectic and disorienting. As time moves on, you will likely remember less and less about the events leading up to and following your accident. When an insurance company goes back to compare all the statements you made over a period of weeks or months, they will claim that any inconsistencies were attempts by you to mislead the company and label them as lies before a judge or a jury.
  • Exposure to trick questions – Representatives often ask trick questions or word their inquiries in a way meant to trick or trap you. You may even be pressured into agreeing to facts that are not completely accurate just to get the representative off your back. Even an aggravated response of “I don’t know, maybe” or “I guess” can come back to haunt you later.
  • Exposure to leading statements – Even a statement that seems innocent on its surface can damage your claim depending on your response. For example, by giving a positive response to statements like “I hope your back is starting to feel a bit better” or “Wow, it’s a miracle you weren’t more seriously injured,” you could be tricked into understating the severity of your injuries.
  • Failure to report undiagnosed injuries – Most doctors agree that the full extent of injuries suffered in an accident may not be evident until several days after the accident has occurred. If a claims adjuster contacts you within 24 hours of a crash and asks about your injuries, chances are you will not be able to provide a complete list of injuries. This will not stop the insurance company from questioning and attempting to dismiss any injuries that became symptomatic after that initial recorded statement was made.
  • Provide material for cross-examination – By the time deposition or trial occurs, chances are the defense counsel will have reviewed your recorded statements dozens of times. They will craft questions for cross-examination with the understanding that you likely don’t remember everything you said or agreed to in that recorded statement. And when you misremember or contradict yourself in a moment of confusion, they will try to claim your misstatement proves your testimony is not credible.

A successful personal injury attorney will utilize their legal expertise, resources, and knowledgeable support staff to develop your case in a way that accurately demonstrates liability as well as any economic and non-economic damages you have incurred. The ultimate goal is to take care of the clients claim so that the client can focus on their health and physical recovery.

If you have been injured, then you have undoubtedly questioned if you should contact an attorney or pursue your claim through your insurer. The important thing to remember that there is a difference between contacting an attorney and hiring an attorney. Regardless of your injury or how it occurred, it is always best to at least reach out to an attorney. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand the options that are available to you and inform you to your best course of action. This is why Thomas J. Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.

Remember, insurance adjusters are familiar with claim procedures and liability, even when you are not. It is also important to remember that the primary job of an insurance adjuster is to limit their client’s liability and save their company money. Everything said during phone calls and recorded statements to an insurer can be used to challenge your claim, twist liability, and downplay the extent of your injuries. In short, the insurance company and their adjusters do not have your best interests in mind.

Injury attorneys understand the tactics most often used by insurers to chip away at a claim, and they can advise you on how your case may benefit from experienced legal representation. The insurance company representing the person or entity responsible for your injuries has already begun the process of safeguarding themselves against liability – isn’t it time you took the steps necessary to protect your rights and claim to compensation?
