Texas truck accident statistics:
Truck accidents occur nearly every day in the state of Texas. It is important to act fast if you are involved in a collision with a large truck. The state gives you two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit based on personal injury. Failure to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations can result in your claim for damages being denied.
After a truck accident, you might be eligible for compensation. Obtaining compensation, however, may be challenging without an attorney. An attorney can help determine who or what caused your accident and who can be held liable for your injuries. Consulting with an attorney immediately after an accident can help ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in your case.
In addition to consulting with an attorney, you need to seek medical attention immediately for your injuries. A delay in treatment could negatively impact your recovery. Obtaining an accurate diagnosis and starting treatment can help ensure you do not suffer additional complications related to your injuries.
