Automobile accidents can happen for any number of reasons, like distracted driving, drunk driving, car malfunctions, speeding, prescription medication, and other driver inhibitions and errors. When you’re the victim of a vehicle crash, it often comes down to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, which gets you caught up in a web of problems just because of someone else’s poor decisions. Being involved in a motor vehicle collision can result in catastrophic changes to your lifestyle.
Worrying about broken bones, spinal injuries, psychological factors, medical bills, personal expenses, insurance companies, transportation, and even daily household tasks is already enough on your plate without having to worry about how to handle the legal aspects of your accident. You need compensation after a car accident — but leave the legal process to your accident attorneys.
Let our personal injury attorneys help you get financial relief from those responsible. Our RGV attorneys will work with you throughout the whole process so that you can be financially compensated and finally receive closure for your experiences and pain.
Commercial truck accidents are not just scary; they can be deadly. 18-wheeler accidents can be much more serious than a wreck with a smaller vehicle. A small car, van, or even a flatbed truck is no match for a big rig. Being a truck accident victim often results in severe injuries, disabilities, or even a fatality.
Whether you are the victim of a truck accident or you have lost a loved one in an accident, you are sure to have excessive financial, physical, emotional, and mental burdens that alter your life for weeks, months, and even years to come. Financially, you’ll have to deal with costly medical expenses and funeral expenses on top of trying to cover your regular bills. Physically, you may be in intense pain while recovering. Mentally and emotionally, you may be stressed and anxious, for which you should speak to a counselor, which results in more bills and dealing with insurance.
These cases are often a result of carelessness on the truck driver’s behalf and the proper compensation should be granted to the victim and/or their family.
This negligence on the truck driver’s behalf may include but is not limited to:
- Driver error
- Distracted driving
- Defective vehicles or parts
- Overloaded truck
- Driver fatigue
- Improper truck maintenance
- Driver alcohol and drug use
- Improper driver hiring, training, or supervision
- Violations of Federal Motor Carrier Administration standards
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a truck accident, you are rightfully entitled to compensation from the liable parties. At The Law Office of Alex Martinez, it is our attorney’s priority to make sure you are taken care of and receive the help and justice you deserve.
Motorcycles are a common form of transportation because they’re both economical and enjoyable for their riders as opposed to other types of vehicles. However, because of their slender dimensions and compact size, they are less visible on the road and, therefore, more at risk of not being seen by other motorists.
This is especially the case when drivers are distracted or recklessly and carelessly switching lanes, speeding, or pulling into oncoming traffic without precautions. Additionally, just as the size difference of an 18-wheeler and a minivan creates greater potential for damage, the size difference between a regular-sized vehicle and a motorcycle causes the likelihood of high damage.
Accidents involving motorcycles can leave the driver with:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lower-extremity injuries
- Road rashes
- Muscle damage
- Psychological injuries
- Lifelong disabilities
