The attorneys at Tracey Fox & Walters have years of experience in dealing with truck accidents. We have a thorough knowledge of the state laws and federal regulations that apply. And we know how to find out if drivers and trucking companies have broken those laws and regulations. Our disciplined approach helps us build strong cases that get results. Trucking companies will do everything they can to make your claim go away. We will relentless pursue the compensation you deserve until they agree to pay you what you are owed.
This depends on many different factors. Some cases can be settled within a few months. Others are more complicated and aren't resolved for several years. If the amount of compensation you are seeking is high, the insurance company and trucking company may try everything to delay a resolution for as long as possible. We can't make any promises about how your case will turn out or how long it will take. But we can promise that we will build the strongest case possible and will be ready to take it to trial, if necessary.
As soon as possible. The sooner you contact us, the sooner an attorney can get right to work on your case and preserve valuable evidence. For example, our firm will immediately seek to gather evidence from the truck's data recorder, also known as the "black box." This will have information that includes the speed and braking of the truck just before the crash. An attorney can also gather evidence at the scene of the accident and talk to witnesses while their memories are still fresh. The San Antonio truck accident lawyers at Tracey Fox & Walters will act fast to gather the facts and evidence that can help you build a strong case.
You can count on it. Large trucking companies have a lot of money to spend on their defense. They will hire their own experts to cast doubt on your claim. They will deny responsibility and may even try to make it look like you are responsible for what happened. That's why it's important to have an experienced San Antonio truck accident lawyer. The law firm of Tracey Fox King & Walters has the resources to fight the trucking industry. We will hire qualified experts, examine all documents, interview all witnesses and conduct a thorough search into the truck driver's history and the trucking company's practices. We will take action to protect your rights and get you the financial compensation you deserve.
Possibly. If it's determined that the accident was 49% your fault, or less, you can still recover damages. However, your financial compensation may be reduced. That's why trucking companies aggressively fight claims. If you are involved in a truck accident in San Antonio, cooperate with police, but do not admit or take responsibility for anything that happened. There are many things that can lead to an accident, and you are probably not aware of everything that occurred.
