I was involved in an accident with a commercial truck just outside of Houston. Am I able to claim personal injury damages?

Yes, it is likely that you will be able to claim personal injury damages. Under Texas law, you may be able to obtain damages that include:

  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Lost wages
  • Past and future medical costs (actually paid/incurred)
  • Damages for disfigurement, physical impairment, pain and suffering, emotional damages

The possible damages a plaintiff can recover after an accident with an 18-wheelers are typically substantial. The main reason for this relates to the nature of the personal injuries involved. Many survivors have devastating injuries and need long-term medical care and rehabilitation. Often, victims are left incapacitated for life and require around-the-clock care.
