When a Truck Accident Causes Serious Injury, Get Help
Smaller vehicles are simply no match for trucks on the road. Because of their immense size, trucks can cause extensive damage to passenger vehicles. These vehicles are often completely destroyed, and the people inside them seriously injured or killed.
At Ted B. Lyon & Associates, in Dallas, Fort Worth, Texas, we represent people who have been seriously injured in truck accidents. We stand up for them to hold negligent trucking companies and drivers accountable for the harm.
Serious Injuries Handled by Our Firm
Our lawyers help people throughout Texas who have experienced very serious injuries, including:
- Head injuries: Traumatic brain injuries can be some of the most devastating to injury victims and their families. People who have experienced brain injuries often find that their lives are permanently changed, and that they are simply not the people they were before the accident. Their families, careers and entire lives are changed.
- Paralysis: We represent people who have experienced paralysis in many forms, including spinal cord injuries that cause paraplegia and quadriplegia. Our goal is to ensure the full support they need and deserve, including medical treatment, surgery, physical and occupational therapy, equipment, accessible transportation and modifications to home environments. Much of this support is expensive. It is often necessary to get a lawyer involved to hold the wrongdoer accountable for the harm caused.
- Lost limbs: Attorneys at our law firm also help people who have lost arms and legs in truck accidents. We understand that the loss of a limb can have a tremendous impact on everything an injury victim does. We make sure that injury victims get the full and fair compensation they deserve.
- Broken bones and injuries to joints: Many of our clients have experienced broken bones or other, related injuries in truck accidents. We make sure that they get the treatment they need so that broken bones can heal fully. We recognize that, in many cases, full recovery will never be possible.
It Is Possible to Settle a Truck Wreck Case too Soon
Many insurance companies pressure car and truck accident victims to settle as quickly as possible. They make settlement offers that are low and, when people accept them, they are forced to sign away their right to sue for additional compensation.
The problem is that many people do not fully recognize the scope of their injuries until years after a crash. Sometimes, what might have seemed like a minor injury at the time actually turns out to be a major one. Other times, one injury leads to a series of complications, and the victim eventually faces a lifetime of health challenges.
If they have signed away their right to ask for more compensation, the personal injury victim may not have enough money for essential treatment. They may have to go without medical care, or face extensive financial problems because of their medical needs.
When an insurance company offers you compensation for your personal injury, it is always best to talk with a lawyer about your options. At Ted B. Lyon & Associates, we advise our clients to wait until we fully understand the impact of a truck accident injury before we agree to a settlement offer. This approach helps us ensure that our clients’ rights are protected.
