Your Rights After a Tow Truck Accident in Houston, TX

In an accident involving a tow truck or other commercial vehicle, it is not unusual for victims to sustain serious injuries. These accidents often involve violent collisions, and our bodies simply are not built to withstand the extreme forces involved. As a result, broken bones are common, and many victims will suffer internal injuries that require prompt diagnosis and treatment in order to prevent long-term damage.

Regardless of the injuries you sustained, if the tow truck driver, the towing company or some other third party is to blame, you could be entitled to financial compensation for all of your accident-related losses. This includes money to cover your:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical impairment
  • Physical disfigurement
  • Loss of household services
  • Loss of support, companionship and consortium

Most accident victims have no idea how much they are entitled to receive for their injuries. Unfortunately, the towing companies and their insurance companies know this, and they will try to use it to their advantage. They will offer quick settlements that may seem like a lot of money to someone who is facing a mountain of medical bills, but which are actually far less than what victims are truly owed.

At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we can protect you against these corporations’ tactics. We will deal with their employees on your behalf, and we will let them know that you won’t settle for less than the law allows. Once we calculate your losses, we will push them to offer a fair settlement. If they refuse, we will take them to trial. We are aggressive advocates for our clients, and we have the experience, skills and resources needed to push for maximum compensation.

Steps You Can Take Now to Protect Your Rights

If you believe that you may have a claim for compensation as a result of a tow truck accident, there are some steps you should try to take right away. Following a tow truck accident in Houston, you should:

  • Seek medical attention for your injuries. See a doctor even if you feel fine.
  • Take photographs. If you are physically able, take photos of your vehicle, your injuries and any damage to your personal property.
  • Write down what you remember. Insurance adjusters will try to influence your story, so be sure to record your version of the events while the accident is fresh in your mind.
  • Keep quiet about the accident. At this point, you should not discuss the accident with anyone other than your attorney.
  • Seek legal representation. Schedule a free consultation with an experienced truck accident attorney who can investigate the accident and help you win just compensation.
