Who's Responsible for what? Wisdom Around 18 Wheelers

Of all the accidents someone can be party to, a wreck with an 18-wheeler in San Antonio brings with it a unique scenario that is difficult for many people. These large vehicles can tear through the typical passenger auto in no time at all and leave drivers and passengers with devastating and life-altering injuries. In the aftermath, you may be left wondering what you can do to get compensated for your injuries and damages.

Large companies typically own the 18-wheelers you see on the road, but pursuing a claim against these companies is rarely easy. In order to do that, you need the necessary tools to proceed in the right way. The San Antonio 18-wheeler injury lawyers and staff of Carabin & Shaw know you need the confidence to pursue a claim against a large company. Our attorneys are highly experienced and possess the skills you need on your side.

The corporations which own 18-wheelers have a lot of resources at their disposal and can be very intimidating to the average person. They employ insurance representatives, investigators, and lawyers who are all committed to minimizing any damages they may owe to injured parties. This also means they may try to influence you to make decisions prematurely or persuade you to take an action that could jeopardize your right to compensation.

Most drivers in San Antonio are unaware of their rights when it comes to liability and insurance laws in Texas. They face the question of who's responsible for what. It’s important to have wisdom around 18-wheelers. For example, the state of Texas is a comparative negligence state. This means that each driver in an accident might be assigned a percentage of negligence, and this could be used to diminish the amount of compensation to which someone is entitled. Did you also know that you are under no legal obligation to talk directly with the other insurance company?

These are just some of the issues an experienced attorney is aware of in San Antonio. Many of the legal issues which apply to an accident with an 18-wheeler can leave most people feeling intimidated and lacking the confidence the need to move forward in the way that is best suited to protecting their rights.
