Now that you have read about what some of the main problems are in here Midland, let’s talk about some answers. If you have lost your loved one gotten hurt, you obviously will want to know what the possible solutions are. The best way to look at these is by showing you some of the more common truck crash myths here in our Midland area.

  • The First Myth: Any old lawyer really can help you handle a truck crash claim.
    • The Reality: You really will need an attorney that has extensive experience handling your individual type of claim. A lawyer whose background is in tax or divorce law can’t really help you with your case because are not experienced enough with truck cases to know how to litigate them the correct way.
  • The Second Myth: Trucking and hauling companies and their insurance companies are legally obligated to compensate you for your lost property and injuries. Also that they have an obligation to settle your case with you for a reasonable and fair amount.
    • Reality: These people and companies think that they do not owe you fair compensation, or, indeed, anything. Too often, accident victims actually don’t know that they really have to fight hard for their fair and just compensation from any of these companies.
  • The Third Myth: It is really cheaper to make you claim for your truck crash yourself.
    • Reality: In any trucking accident claim or case, it requires a lot of experience and finesse to legally prove up all of your losses and damages. This is exactly the kind of thing that Carabin Shaw’s lawyers have more than 20 years of hard won experience doing for clients. If you handle something like this by yourself, you may get the kind of settlement that pays your medical costs and bills. On the other hand, experienced attorneys would have a much better chance at getting you noticeably more monetary compensation than you would ever be able to get your own.
  • Myth #4: Police reports always establish which driver is legally at fault.
    • Reality: Any police agency report, in a civil case, really is just another element of all of the evidence. Of course, the officer who fills out a report may be able to see clearly which party appears to be at fault, but maybe not. Such reports are filled out by normal people who make mistakes just like the rest of us. An experienced Carabin Shaw Midland truck crash lawyer always knows that any police agency report is far from the only evidence your case needs you to bring into evidence. There are many other relevant facts to admit into evidence and for the fact finder to take into consideration in determining who is legally at fault and how much.
  • Myth #5: It is just about always the truck operator’s fault.
    • Reality: We all understand that accidents are not always the truck operator’s fault. Accidents do happen. Carabin Shaw always does its due diligence and collects all relevant evidence, because we really are not there to “get” anyone who didn’t legally do anything negligent. Carabin Shaw is here to help you make a claim or sue someone who actually is negligent. On some occasions, that someone is really not the truck operator at all.

Carabin Shaw is here to help you with these things and to get you the best possible chance at the maximum recovery allowed by law.
