This post recaps our series on the handling of trucking accident cases in Austin, Texas. Our goal with this series has been to help residents of our area know what it is to expect from the process and to clear up potential misperceptions. One thing that we have stressed throughout each post is that you should contact an Austin truck accident attorney immediately if you have been involved in such an incident. Cases involving a big rig often lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death. It is a mistake to attempt to handle such a matter without legal assistance.
We have addressed several issues over our recent posts. Topics we have covered include:
- Identifying defendants in an Austin trucking accident case
- Conducting discovery in a truck accident case
- Using experts in truck accident cases
- What to expect at a trucking accident trial
These are important topics for several reasons. First, accidents involving a big rig differ from car wreck cases due to the fact that they often involve more serious injuries and multiple defendants. Second, discovery in such matters can often be complicated as it involves determining the liability of each defendant. Third, experts are typically necessary in such cases. Such experts will have to testify in regards to future medical expenses, future lost wages, and liability issues, especially if an accident reconstructionist is employed. Finally, many do not know what to expect from the trial process.
When selecting an attorney for such a case it is important that you select one with significant resources. Some law firms, unfortunately, do not have the financial resources necessary to retain multiple experts or to see a complex case through to completion when dealing with large corporate defendants. Retaining counsel who lacks these resources can result in your potentially not recovering the full amount to which you are entitled.
