Maximizing Compensation After a Beaumont Commercial Vehicle Accident

After a Beaumont Texas commercial vehicle accident, you are likely to have collected incredible expenses for medical bills, lost work wages, property damages, and other losses. In cases where the commercial vehicle driver was at fault for the accident, and liable for damages, Texas law allows you to fight for financial compensation alongside an experienced Beaumont lawyer.

However, multiple entities throughout the claims process will do everything in their power to award you as little compensation as possible. With the help of the Beaumont personal injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw, you have full control over how you respond to your accident, and access to your maximum possible financial award.

The attorneys at Carabin Shaw can tell you exactly how to ensure that you win your highest possible financial settlement, but the tips in this blog can help you to start on that path even before your free initial consultation.

Contact Your Insurance Company

While it may seem wise to research the legal action you can take after a collision, one of the most important steps to take early on is to contact your insurance company and inform them of the accident as soon as you can.

Beaumont saw nearly 3,500 auto collisions in 2022, placing it in the top 15 cities in Texas for dangerous crashes according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Due to the sheer volume of collisions that occur in the city, alerting your insurance company before seeking the support of a Beaumont TX truck accident lawyer serves to accelerate the timeline of your claim.

Remember, too, that simply notifying your insurance company of a collision is not enough to raise your insurance rates. For collisions where the fault rests on another driver, your premiums will be unaffected.

Limit Claims Communications with Other Parties

As with any legal case, once a claim is in motion, there are certain people you should talk to and certain people you should not talk to.

Who should you talk to?

  • Police: Reporting incident details to the police, and following up if questions are posed, is an important part of winning your commercial vehicle accident compensation.
  • Asking when the police report will be available may also serve your case, as an official police report is important evidence in a commercial collision claim.
  • Doctors: The medical records from your doctor visits are strong evidence in a personal injury claim and, importantly, held to establish the value of your compensation.

While our team can help you to estimate the value of your claim and connect injuries to the accident, the evidence provided by a doctor stands as proof that your injuries were caused as a result of the collision and are the responsibility of the negligent commercial vehicle driver.

Who should you not talk to?

  • The other driver
  • Anyone through social media
  • The other driver’s insurance company without the presence of an attorney
Contact a Trusted Commercial Collision Injury Attorney

A local injury attorney who has extensive experience in commercial vehicle collision is your most effective tool throughout the course of a personal injury claim.

More so than in any other collision, liability and fault are often muddied in commercial vehicle collisions. So many parties are responsible for the safety measures of a specific truck that, in many cases, multiple parties may be liable for your damages. Meanwhile, according to The Texas Tribune, trucking companies are pushing more legal measures than ever to reduce their own liability in such accidents.
