Truck Accidents Can Be Catastrophic
Injuries that are considered "catastrophic" are life-changing. However, the full effects might not be apparent until months or even years after the incident. That is one reason why it's so important to receive medical attention even if you don't feel seriously hurt. Our Arlington truck accident lawyers often see:
Compared to other types of injuries, traumatic brain injuries can have especially extensive effects. These might be cognitive, creating memory problems, difficulty concentrating, or dramatic mood swings. Others are sensory. For example, patients might have recurring vision problems or lose their sense of smell. In other cases, severe chronic headaches might occur. Head injuries are notoriously difficult to treat and can affect victims' relationships, ability to work, and more.
Victims of truck accidents might suffer from serious burns to their bodies. A burn is not only one of the most painful types of injuries, but the resulting disfigurement can cause emotional effects such as withdrawal and depression.
Vision or Hearing Loss
Often tied to brain injuries, these sensory effects can have some of the most damaging outcomes. A partial or total loss of your sight or ability to hear can have a substantial negative impact on your quality of life. You might not be able to return to your former line of work. Even if you are, it might be at a reduced capacity.
After you have received timely medical care, the second most important step is reaching out to an attorney. We will discuss your unique situation in order to learn more about your injuries and the effects on your life so far. Our attorneys in Arlington work carefully to both weigh immediate consequences and project how they will affect you and your family in the future. Using this information, we can determine what a fair settlement or jury award might be.

You Have 2 Years to File a Claim Understanding the Statute of Limitations
In Arlington and throughout the state of Texas, victims of car accidents, truck accidents, and other types of personal injuries normally have two years to settle or file a lawsuit.

There are several reasons why acting sooner is advantageous. Reaching out to our law firm will shift some of the mental burdens onto our team.

Don't take chances - reach out to us as soon as you can.
Do I Really Need an Attorney?
The insurance adjuster's job is to protect their employer's bottom line. Our job is to protect your rights, and this includes helping you avoid being shortchanged by an insurance company when it comes to the compensation you deserve.
All too often, victims are pressured to give a statement to the adjuster, when in truth you do not have to say anything. You certainly are under no obligation to have a conversation with the adjuster outside the presence of your attorney. Before you return a call to an insurance adjuster to talk about your accident, contact our Arlington law firm. We will review the facts with you and recommend a course of action to take. If Rocky Walton cannot negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf, he is not afraid to take your case to trial.

I would have never been able to navigate this horrible situation on my own. The staff was above and beyond helpful and patient in their communications with me.View on Google
What Does Compensation Cover?
From transportation in an ambulance to doctor visits, surgery, medications, and more, medical bills can mount quickly. These costs are among the most pressing to our clients, and we believe they deserve the highest quality treatment available for their injuries. We can provide letters of protection that guarantee medical debts will be paid back with money from a future settlement or verdict.
Ongoing Rehabilitation and Therapy
Victims of truck accidents often require months or even years of therapy. This assistance might be necessary to overcome cognitive deficits or physical limitations, such as difficulty walking as a result of broken bones.
The effects of catastrophic injuries can place an undue burden on family members or other loved ones acting as caregivers. The best solution in these cases is often at-home care, which comes at a cost that is simply prohibitive to most of our clients.
Modifications to Your Home
Certain injuries, such as amputations or paralysis, will necessitate changes to your home in order to ensure your safety. Some of our clients might also be able to maintain some level of independence by making modifications to their vehicles, such as installing hand-controlled pedals in their car.
Loss of Income
Victims of serious accidents might be out of work for an extended period while they heal. Even if they can return to work, it might be at a limited capacity. This financial burden is often exacerbated if the victim was the primary earner for their family.
Pain and Suffering
Although this area of compensation is more difficult to quantify than economic losses, it should still be a major consideration. In order to gauge how mental anguish, physical pain, and emotional distress (such as anxiety and trouble sleeping) have impacted you, an attorney will look at how your day-to-day life has changed and will continue to be affected in the future.
A Testimonial for Our Truck Accident Attorney
"After I was struck from behind on the highway, the at fault driver's insurance stated their algorithm determined there was no way I could be injured to the extent I was, due to the "minor" damage to my vehicle. Well, they were wrong. I had to undergoe major surgery to repair my neck. Rocky and his team took my case and collected the maximum compensation possible. He and his team took the stress off of me and my family. They handled every aspect from the beginning to the end, and kept me informed the entire time." Mike Wade
Why Is the Cause Important?
Compared to bike, pedestrian, or even car accidents, determining the cause of truck accidents is rarely straightforward. A truck accident lawyer in Texas needs to carefully determine the exact cause of the incident in order to hold the correct party or parties responsible.
In the case of drunk driving, the commercial truck driver would obviously be at fault. If cargo had been improperly secured and ended up on a busy highway, the trucking company would likely be held responsible. In other cases, a contractor that was responsible for road upkeep might have been negligent and failed to fill dangerous potholes or other types of damage in a timely manner, resulting in a crash.
The various causes and number of parties who might potentially be responsible are just some of the reasons why you need a dedicated truck accident attorney who has handled a large number of personal injury cases of this nature. Our truck accident lawyers in Arlington work closely with specialists in the field, such as truck accident reconstruction experts, to pinpoint exactly what happened.
Speak Carefully At the Scene of the Accident
Even if the accident was not your fault, you may feel the urge to apologize out of habit. Doing so can be seen as an admission of guilt, so it is important not to say anything of that nature to the truck driver or anyone else at the scene of the truck accident.
