Texas Truck Accident Frequently Asked Questions

For more than 20 years, Attorney Juan L. Guerra has represented victims of truck accidents in Houston and across Texas. Here are some of the questions he frequently hears:

What types of compensation can I seek after a semi-truck accident? 

After a semi-truck accident, you may seek compensation for various damages, including:

  • Medical Expenses: Coverage for past and future medical bills related to your injuries.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to inability to work during recovery.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for physical and emotional distress caused by the accident.
  • Property Damage: Reimbursement for repair or replacement of your vehicle and other damaged property.

An experienced lawyer can help determine the best approach to quantify and pursue these damages effectively, helping you receive the full compensation you deserve for your losses.

How long do I have to file a claim after a semi-truck accident in Texas? 

In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including those arising from truck accidents, is generally two years from the accident. Otherwise, you forever lose the right.

What makes semi-truck accidents different from other vehicle accidents? 

Semi-truck accidents differ from other vehicle accidents due to:

  • Federal Regulations: Trucks adhere to strict federal regulations, complicating liability.
  • Severity of Injuries: The size disparity leads to more severe injuries or fatalities.
  • Liability Complexities: Determining liability involves multiple parties, including the driver, company and manufacturers, adding intricacy to the case.

With Juan L. Guerra, Jr. & Associates, you can confidently approach your case, knowing your rights are protected and maximizing your chances of receiving fair compensation for your truck accident injuries.

Who can be held liable in a semi-truck accident? 

Potentially liable parties in a semi-truck accident can include the truck driver, the trucking company, repair companies who worked on the vehicle, manufacturers and distributors of defective parts that may have caused the accident and loading companies.

Juan L. Guerra, Jr. & Associates will thoroughly investigate your case to identify all potentially liable parties.
