Every year truck, motorcycle, bus, car, and other automobile collisions kill and seriously injure a large number of Texans. In fact, auto accidents are one of the leading causes of death in Texas and in the United States. This has become especially true with the deregulation of trucking in Texas and the opening up of our borders with Mexico through NAFTA.
But, driving on our roads is a necessary risk we all have to take. In Texas we are required by law to buy auto insurance for our cars and trucks in order to compensate injured parties in the event we cause an accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always adequately compensate those injured in serious collisions or the families of persons killed by negligent drivers. They prefer to pay as little as possible on legitimate accident claims when they can get away with it. If you don’t have a lawyer and have been offered compensation on a current claim, it is possible that you are eligible for cash damages many times what is being offered. Hiring an attorney especially in catastrophic damage cases can greatly increase the amount that you recover in your claim for damages.
Whether the accident was caused by reckless driving, mechanical error, and/or alcohol, you need a lawyer that understands insurance companies, can navigate liability insurance, PIP, medical pay, uninsured, and underinsured motorist coverage. You may be able to receive compensation, not only for property damage, but for medical costs, lost wages, future losses, impairment, disfigurement, pain and suffering and other damages. If you have been seriously injured in an accident, it is important that you contact an attorney so you fully understand your rights before proceeding with a claim.

Please feel free to contact The Law Offices of Jason S. Coomer for additional information on vehicle collisions, truck accidents, and car crashes. Don't think that if you have suffered serious injuries in an automobile collision that the insurance industry will take care of you or voluntarily pay you for all the medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, impairment, disfigurement, and other damages that you have suffered. They probably won't. In fact, many insurance adjusters will offer low settlement amounts hoping that you will sign away your claim prior to knowing the full extent of your damages. I have also seen insurance adjusters will delay and allow the statute of limitations to run relieving the insurance company of any liability.
The trucking industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that is essential to our economy. Unfortunately, with these large vehicles driving on our roads and highways comes the potential of catastrophic damages. Untrained, overworked, or inexperienced drivers all too often lose control of their vehicles causing them to jackknife, overturn, or collide with passenger vehicles. When this happens it is typically the passengers of the smaller vehicle that suffer. If this has happened to someone you or someone you love it is a good idea to obtain excellent legal representation to protect your or your loved one's rights and to make sure that an investigation as to the cause of the collision in done correctly.
If you have been seriously injured by in a car crash, motorcycle accident, or other automobile collision, it is important to seek medical help to determine how to treat the head trauma, back herniations, broken bones, or injuries you have suffered. It is then a good idea to contact the authorities and/or explore a possible law suit to make sure that the wrongful act or hazardous conditions can be remedied.
