Injured in an Accident?


What to Look For in an 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer in Texas

If you have been involved in an 18-wheeler accident in Texas, it is imperative that you seek legal representation as soon as possible. These types of truck accidents can be devastating, resulting in serious injuries, extensive medical bills, and long-term disability. Finding the right personal injury lawyer can make all the difference in your case, and it’s essential to know what to look for when selecting an attorney. In this article, we will discuss some of the key factors to consider when choosing a personal injury lawyer to represent you in an 18-wheeler accident case in Texas.

  • Experience: One of the most important things to look for in a personal injury lawyer is experience. You want an attorney who has handled 18-wheeler accidents before and has a proven track record of success. An experienced lawyer will know the ins and outs of these complex cases and will be able to effectively navigate the legal system to get you the compensation you deserve.

  • Reputation: Another important factor to consider when selecting a personal injury lawyer is their reputation. You want an attorney who is well-respected in the legal community and has a reputation for being a strong advocate for their clients. Look for reviews and testimonials from former clients, as well as any accolades or awards the lawyer may have received.

  • Communication Skills: Effective communication is a critical component of any successful attorney-client relationship. You want a personal injury lawyer who will keep you informed every step of the way, answer your questions promptly and thoroughly, and explain complex legal concepts in a way that is easy to understand. Look for an attorney who takes the time to listen to your concerns and is dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

  • Availability: When you’re dealing with an 18-wheeler accident case, time is of the essence. You want a personal injury lawyer who is available to you when you need them. Look for an attorney who is responsive to phone calls and emails and who will keep you informed of any developments in your case. You don’t want an attorney who’s too busy to give your case the attention it deserves.

  • Fees: Finally, it’s important to consider the fees when selecting a personal injury lawyer. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if you win your case. However, you should still ask about the fees upfront and make sure you understand how they will be calculated. You don’t want any surprises when it comes to paying for legal services.

In conclusion, if you have been involved in an 18-wheeler accident in Texas, it is essential to find the right personal injury lawyer to represent you. Look for an attorney who has experience with these types of cases, a good reputation, strong communication skills, availability, and fair fees. By taking the time to select the right 18-wheeler accident attorney, you can increase your chances of getting the compensation you deserve and moving on with your life after a devastating accident.

Three Questions You May Have

If you are considering engaging with a personal attorney, the three most prominent questions on your mind are probably the following… First, do I expose myself to risk if I wait to speak with an attorney? Secondly, does my attorney know what they are doing? In other words, does my attorney give me the best chance to win? Thirdly, will my attorney be fair with me in regards to legal fees? Our answer to all three is a resounding “Yes!”

In some cases, accident victims view retaining legal counsel as a last resort. They take the “let’s wait and see” approach. Often, those that have taken such an approach have, unfortunately, regretted their hesitation later on. Why the regret? Because while they were remaining idle from a legal perspective, the insurance company got a head start and already had representatives and attorneys actively working to limit their financial liability.

It’s important to remember that insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. They may appear to “play nice” while on the phone in the initial stages of an accident and injury claim, but they are working feverishly behind the scenes to do everything possible to undermine your claim(s). Some of their tactics include, but are not limited to unintentional inconsistencies, exposure to trick questions, exposure to leading statements, failure to report undiagnosed injuries, and to provide material for cross examination.

One of the things you’ll want to know for sure when engaging with an attorney to help you with a personal injury claim is whether or not your attorney knows what he or she is doing? Does your attorney have the experience in personal injury law required to fight intelligently on your behalf? Will your attorney be accessible and available to answer your questions and respond to opposing counsel in a timely manner? Does your attorney know how to strategically  and effectively fight against the big shot lawyers of the big insurance companies? Does your attorney know how the personal injury system in Texas is different from other states?

Call Camden Law today to meet a personal injury lawyer you can trust to fight vigorously and give you a competitive advantage.

Some people have a reluctancy to engage with a lawyer because of fear that they will not be able to afford the legal fees. It’s a valid concern. There are lawyers out there that take advantage of their clients and have billing practices that are exploitative or unfair. Thankfully, these concerns are less applicable to personal injury law, because the attorneys that are involved in personal injury law almost always bill by a contingency fee. You’ve probably heard personal injury attorneys say “we don’t get paid unless we win”, or something similar. We even say that here on our website. That’s because contingency billing (being paid contingent upon winning the case) is the standard practice for all personal injury attorneys.

So what makes Camden Law different? Even in personal injury law and contingency billing, there are still ways to handle a case so that the client (you) get’s the maximum amount of their award. Our attorneys work closely with medical providers to reduce bills and ensure the client (you) receives more of their award. Furthermore, it is our practice that our legal fees never exceed the amount the client receives.

What To Do After an 18 Wheeler Truck Accident

Eighteen-wheeler trucks are an ever-present site on highways and roads. But no one ever really expects to be involved in an 18-wheeler truck accident. The thought of colliding with one of these massive vehicles is enough to make anyone want to stay off the roads. However, people still need to drive, and 18-wheeler truck accidents do happen. If you or someone you love is involved in an 18-wheeler truck accident, be sure to follow the correct process to take advantage of your rights.

Seek Medical Attention

First and foremost, the health and safety of the driver and passengers involved in an accident are the most critical. Seek medical attention for anyone injured during an 18-wheeler truck accident. Anyone injured in the accident should go to the hospital immediately and be evaluated by medical professionals. There’s no denying that taking care of yourself and your loved ones after an accident should be the first thing you do.

Contact Police

After assessing injuries, contact the police. In most instances, police will already be en route to an 18-wheeler truck accident before you are able to call, but if not, contact them to report the accident. They will make notes concerning what happened in order to have documentation involving the accident. If you can, have a relative or friend come to the scene to record documentation as well.

Record Details of the Accident

After an accident, sit down and take notes about what you remember. Ask passengers or bystanders to do the same. Take photos of the scene and get the names of any vehicles who stopped to help that can attest to what happened or act as potential witnesses later on. Record as many details as possible to help your case. Most likely, a trucking company won’t outright accept liability for an accident, even if the driver was at fault. The more records you keep, the harder it will be for trucking companies to minimize their involvement.

Contact an 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Lawyer
