Austin’s Cluttered Highways and Commercial Collisions

The I-35 is one of the most important trade routes in Texas, ending in Laredo. According to Marketplace.org, Laredo sees more trade than any other port in the United States. As a result, the entirety of the I-35 hosts countless commercial vehicles that ferry goods across the country.

According to Axios Austin, that traffic is only expected to increase in the coming years as the Laredo port continues to increase trade from Mexico. The highways across Austin are dangerous enough as-is, but more commercial vehicles means more devastating accidents and more terrible injuries to the drivers of passenger vehicles.

What to Do after a Commercial Vehicle Accident in Austin

As auto collisions with commercial vehicles become more likely, it is important that you know how to handle these incidents if they happen. Taking the right action after a collision can help both your recovery and your legal case when you choose to seek compensation.

1. Seek Medical Aid

While its benefits to your recovery process are clear, visiting a medical professional after your accident, even in cases where you do not notice any visible injuries, is incredibly important to your case.

Collecting evidence of the injuries you sustained is a major part of any personal injury claim. An Austin commercial vehicle accident lawyer can use the written record of your injuries to estimate the value of your claim, and help you understand what sort of compensation you can win.

2. Gather Evidence From the Collision

Medical paperwork is not the only evidence that a trusted attorney can use to strengthen your injury claim. Any verifiable evidence regarding how the crash occurred will help to determine fault, and percentage of fault, in your case.

This can include photos of the vehicles after the collision and before they are moved, photos of skid marks left of the surface of the road, witness statements, etc. Crash reports taken by police that respond to the scene can also be beneficial.

Of course, an experienced lawyer will also work to investigate the circumstances of your collision. We prioritize the best interest of our clients so that you can focus entirely on your recovery instead of on the legal claim itself.

3. Understand All of Your Legal Options

Unfortunately, it is rare that a commercial vehicle accident in Austin TX ends without injury to the passenger vehicle’s driver and passengers. More often than not, commercial vehicle drivers and their employers will work to reduce their own liability and, by extension, the compensation you are owed as a victim.
