Corpus Christi Commercial Vehicle Accidents
As any resident could tell you, there has been a noticeable increase in the amount of Corpus Christi commercial vehicle accidents in the course of the past decade. One cause is increased tension between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) officials and immigrant populations from Mexico, which raises the need for all kinds of supplies, from large containers of food and water to building materials that can reinforce structures not originally designed to house large numbers of immigrants. Another possible cause is transportation companies attempting to supply the city with materials that can be used as ballast against tropical depressions and hurricanes. Whatever these large commercial vehicles are transporting, the coastal city is experiencing some of the ill effects of this increase in traffic. Fortunately, our attorneys have been protecting Corpus Christi residents from undue amounts of harm and damage since 1992.
If you are the victim of a commercial vehicle accident, you may be entitled to certain benefits that will assist you in your healing process and financial recovery. Corpus Christi commercial vehicle accidents are especially prone to yielding greater amounts of compensation than other Texas-area accidents. This is due to the relative frequency of these accident types, as our lawyers have shown time and time again. For instance, a staggering 98 percent of all accidents involving semi-trucks will result in a least one fatality. For every 100 million miles driven on U.S. roads and highways, there are nearly 2 and a half deaths and around 60 injuries caused by big rig trucks. The law firm of Carabin & Shaw is determined to decrease these statistics and the suffering that they represent. Help us by allowing our attorneys to advocate for not just your rights, but by extension the rights of every person who has experienced tragic loss as the result of Corpus Christi commercial vehicle accidents.
If the truck driver or company is at fault for your accident, you can file a claim or lawsuit against them to recover damages for your injuries. This may include compensation for hospital bills, rehabilitation services, loss of income due to time missed at work, future medical expenses, future loss of wages, as well as pain and suffering. If, as is far too often the case, a loved one has died as a result of a Corpus Christi truck-related accident, our lawyers can help you file a wrongful death claim on his or her behalf. Damages include medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, and loss of consortium. Consortium is a fancy legal term for the grief and pain you will experience in the aftermath of a fatal accident—specifically the lack and absence of a further relationship with a family member, i.e. your consortium.
