Austin Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney - Fighting for Fair Compensation

Commercial vehicles include a variety of larger cargo-carrying vehicles, including 18 wheelers, buses, vans, tractors, and more. Accidents with any of these vehicles can be devastating to victims, with damages ranging from medical bills to lost wages and emotional suffering. If you’ve recently been involved in a commercial vehicle accident in Texas’s capital city, the Austin personal injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw can help.

Example Commercial Vehicle Accidents

While your incident in Austin TX may not match exactly with any listed below, recognizing some examples of these collisions may be helpful in identifying your own claim. It’s important to remember that each case is unique and legal action surrounding your accident should be customized to your specific situation as determined by your chosen Texas lawyer.

A few general commercial vehicle accident examples where an injured person is eligible to sue the driver or the company of the driver for compensation include, but are not limited to:

  • Rear-end collision involving a commercial truck and another vehicle on the highway
  • Pedestrian struck by a delivery truck while crossing the street at a crosswalk
  • Cyclist involved in a collision with a commercial van making a turn at an intersection
  • Multi-vehicle accident on the freeway involving a commercial semi-truck
  • Motorcyclist hit by a commercial bus changing lanes without signaling
  • Commercial vehicle driver falling asleep at the wheel and causing a head-on collision with another vehicle
  • Employee injured in a company car accident while riding and performing work-related duties
  • Construction worker injured by a commercial vehicle while working at a roadside construction site

Because of the larger size of these vehicles, injuries to victims are usually severe and property damage is significant. Regardless of if you were another driver, a pedestrian, a bicyclist, etc., in one of these collisions, consulting with an Austin commercial vehicle accident attorney will prove vital for your case. Call 800-862-1260 to schedule your FREE CASE REVIEW 24/7 at Carabin Shaw. Our team will ensure that justice is served and that maximum compensation is received as a result.

Who Can Be Held Accountable for My Commercial Vehicle Accident?

The following parties may be held accountable if their actions or negligence contributed to the accident.

  • Driver of the commercial vehicle
  • Trucking/commercial vehicle company (the company who owns or operates the vehicle in question)
  • Vehicle manufacturer
  • Cargo Loader
  • Other third parties (other drivers, maintenance contractors, government agencies, etc.)

Such cases usually involve multiple parties and large insurance companies. They also require an extensive knowledge of state laws and regulations, making them difficult to handle without the help of a Commercial vehicle accident lawyer in Austin TX. Legal representation ensures that victims and their families understand their rights, receive proper medical treatment, and have a strong advocate to fight for justice while they focus on recovery.

What Damages am I Eligible for in Texas?

As a commercial vehicle injured victim in Texas, you may be eligible for a few types of damages to compensate for your losses.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are defined as “compensatory damages intended to compensate a claimant for actual economic or pecuniary loss.” These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and punitive damages in certain cases of gross negligence or misconduct.

Non-Economic Damages

In Texas these damages are for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium (hindered companionship, affection, support, and intimacy of a spouse), and loss of enjoyment of life.

The experienced attorneys at Carabin Shaw are familiar with fighting on behalf of victims against big companies and large corporations who are looking for you to accept less than you are owed.
