In certain cases, fatal truck accidents happen, wreaking havoc on families.
Texas car accidents can result in personal injuries and damages. If you are involved in an accident that was caused by the driver of a company vehicle, you may be able to seek monetary recovery from both the negligent driver, as well as the driver’s employer (i.e. the company who employed the driver).
When a motorcyclist is involved in a collision they don’t have the benefit of being surrounded by a steel frame, airbags, or other automobile safety features.

No matter what the reason, a motorcyclist with years of experience, obeying traffic laws, driving defensively, and always staying on guard can still be involved in a serious motorcycle accident.
If you or a deceased relative were involved in a drunk driving accident, Texas law allows you to initiate a claim against the driver, and any other party, that caused your injuries. You must show that the defendant in your case is liable for your injuries to recover damages.
