Compensation for Truck Accident Claims

A truck accident claim can include compensation for economic damages such as:

  • Medical assistance/care
  • Loss of wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Nursing home care and domestic services

No cap exists on economic damages in the state of Texas.

You may also be able to sue for noneconomic damages such as:

  1. Pain and suffering
  2. Mental and emotional suffering
  3. Inconvenience
  4. Disfigurement
  5. Loss of enjoyment of life
  6. Loss of relations with your spouse.

There are currently no caps on noneconomic damages in Texas.

Finally, you also may be able to sue for punitive damages, which are meant to punish the defendant for a willful or reckless act. In Texas, punitive damages may not exceed more than two times the amount of economic damages plus the amount equal to noneconomic damages, not to exceed $750,000 or $200,000, whichever is greater.

We Understand Truck Wrecks

Many motor vehicle cases involve limited evidence and only thousands—sometimes mere hundreds—of dollars in damages, in addition to relatively insignificant or minimal insurance coverage. The nature, severity, and complexity of truck wrecks mean just the opposite. This level of exposure leads to fierce, lengthy litigation that can last for years. Our lawyers have been in the trenches of hotly contested truck wreck cases involving substantial amounts and have the experience to match.

We understand the importance of qualified experts in complex areas such as accident reconstruction, human factors, and biomechanical engineering, and we know how to effectively communicate evidence in these areas in a way that a jury can comprehend. We understand and know how to navigate the landscape of regulatory schemes such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and the case law interpreting them which is critical in trucking cases.
