Why You Need a Dallas Injury Lawyer for Your Company Vehicle Accident Claim

You may think your company vehicle accident is just another car crash; however, there are a number of differences making crashes with company and commercial vehicles more complex and more difficult to recover compensation from.

The first thing to consider is who is responsible for your injuries. There are a number of laws and regulations that apply to drivers of commercial vehicles as well as their employers. When these laws are broken and a crash occurs, both the driver and the employer can be held liable. A lawyer will help you navigate this process as well as help you secure the full compensation you deserve.

You also need to consider the company you are seeking compensation from. They do not want to pay you fair compensation. Their attorneys will work to protect the company’s bottom line and limit its liability for your injuries and damage. You deserve to have an attorney working for your best interest.

Finally, a Dallas company vehicle accident lawyer can help your case by bringing in expert witnesses. An expert witness is a person with specialized knowledge or expertise in a field. They can help determine how your accident occurred as well as demonstrate the full cost of your injuries and damages.

What Qualifies as a Company Vehicle?

Company vehicles can come in all shapes and sizes. Typically, in Texas, we think of company vehicles as 18-wheelers and work trucks, but the truth is that a company vehicle may also be a bus, van, or even a passenger sedan.

Vehicles we see often involved in company vehicle accidents include:

  • Cars
  • Pickups
  • SUVs
  • Vans
  • Semi-trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Transporters
  • Refrigerated trucks
  • Ambulances
  • City buses
  • School buses
  • Uber and Lyft vehicles

When Can a Company Be Held Liable for an Accident?

Companies owe some responsibility for the actions of employees or agents of the company while in the course and scope of their job.

When an accident occurs, an employer may be held liable for:

  • 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

Our Dallas company vehicle accident attorneys know how to investigate and prove liability in these instances. They will take immediate action to secure all available evidence for your claim and will fight for your rights in and out of the courtroom.

When you neglect to speak with a Dallas injury attorney following an accident or injury, you may be risking more than you realize. Insurance adjusters will pick apart your claim, potentially leaving you with bills and expenses that were not your fault. Even speaking with an attorney can help you avoid potential pitfalls, including:

  • 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 reputable personal injury lawyer can utilize their legal expertise, resources, and staff to help build your case and demonstrate the damages suffered. They understand what damages can be sought, ensuring you are compensated not only for your injuries but also financial losses tied to lost wages and medical checkups.

Our Dallas injury lawyers can also help alleviate the stress that follows an accident or injury. We want to make sure you are treated with respect and that you feel that you are in full control of the situation. We will keep you up-to-date on the status of your claim and work with medical providers and authorities to make sure all the necessary documents and information are in place for you.

No matter the cause or severity of your accident, it is typically in your best interest to speak with a lawyer about your claim. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand the options that are available to you and inform you of your best course of action. This is why Thomas J. Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.

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?
