Injured While Riding in a Commercial Vehicle in Dallas TX

If you were recently the passenger in a commercial vehicle during a Dallas collision, the Dallas commercial vehicle passenger injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw will fight for the legal settlement that you are owed as an injury victim.

Commercial vehicle collisions can be accompanied by a messy legal process. The degree of liability taken on by the affiliated company depends heavily on the circumstances of the collision. Scheduling a free case review with Carabin Shaw attorneys lets you consult with established experts, and the information in this article will set you on the most reliable path towards winning compensation.

Is the Trucking Company Liable for Your Injuries?

As a rule, commercial companies take responsibility for the actions of their employees under a legal doctrine called respondeat superior. This doctrine holds employers responsible for the wrongdoings of their employee, so long as the act occurred under the scope of employee duties.

While a Dallas bus accident attorney can answer related questions for you, the following circumstances must be true for employers to be held responsible:

  1. The liable party (commercial vehicle driver) must be an official employee of the business. While you can still pursue compensation for accidents caused by contract workers, the legal process is different in those cases.
  2. The employee must have been operating in the “course of scope of their employment.” If you were riding in the commercial vehicle when the accident occurred, then there are few circumstances where this would not be the case.

Organizations that may be held liable after you have been injured in commercial vehicle accident in Dallas TX include:

  • School district
  • Government or business agencies
  • Public transportation agencies

And other parties. Working with trusted attorneys will further inform you of any and all organizations that you recover financial compensation from.

What Can a Lawyer Help You Recover Compensation For?

When it comes to fighting for the settlement you are owed after a commercial vehicle collision, the type of injury is typically less important than how that injury impacts the rest of your life. This is determined, in many cases, by the medical costs associated with recovery, as well as what you are unable to do as a result of the injury.

When you have a Dallas Texas commercial vehicle accident lawyer to fight for you, you can expect to win compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages from reduced work hours
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
  • And other impacts to your daily life

As far as injuries that can cause these incredible losses, they can include

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Internal bleeding or organ failure
  • Paralysis or loss of limbs
  • And any other costly injury.
