Strong Representation After A Trucking Accident

The roads in Texas and New Mexico are commonplace for commercial trucks. These large vehicles are essential for transporting goods across the country, but they are not without risks. When an accident occurs on the roads near Lubbock, such as Interstate 27, US 62, US 82 or US 84, you need a strong attorney who knows these cases and the area.

I am Damon Richards, Attorney at Law, a Texas attorney with more than 40 years of experience in personal injury law. I know how to identify the maximum compensation in an injury claim and how to fight for it.

How I Help My Clients

When a new client comes to my office, I want them to understand that I am an attorney who will put their needs first through every step of their claim. Instead of offering the same boilerplate representation that they may get elsewhere, I craft a custom-tailored strategy to help maximize the outcome of their claims.

I know the roads in the area and how they may have contributed to your accident. I also know when a defendant is trying to avoid liability and how to hold them accountable. My goal as your legal representation is to guide you to the outcome you deserve swiftly and effectively while answering your important questions, such as:

What steps should I take after a truck accident?

After an accident, you should always make sure that you are taking care of your medical needs first. Call an ambulance if necessary and also report the accident to the police, your insurance and call a skilled personal injury attorney who can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Who will pay for my medical care after a truck wreck?

Before you are able to secure compensation from the at-fault driver for your accident, there are several options that you can turn to so you can cover the cost of medical expenses. Your health insurance and auto insurance may both be able to provide you with the coverage you need to cover the costs of your medical expenses after an accident.

Should I accept the offer from the insurance company?

You should never accept any offer from an insurance company without consulting with an attorney first. Most accident victims do not have a solid understanding of what their claim is worth or if they are receiving fair compensation for their injuries and future expenses as well. I can act on your behalf to review any offers you have received and negotiate for one that more accurately reflects what you deserve.

How much does it cost to hire a truck wreck attorney?

The cost of recovering from a serious personal injury includes paying your regular monthly bills without the support of your regular monthly income. I know how hard it can be to pursue fair compensation while also trying to make ends meet, which is why I only charge my clients a portion of what they win in their cases, and only collect payment from the compensation they earn. This way, you will never have to worry about paying me, as my fees are contingent on my success in your case.

Will my case have to go to trial?

Not every personal injury claim must go to trial. If the plaintiff and defendant can reach an agreement outside of court for a fair settlement, they can skip the trial and the victim can collect the money they deserve. If the defendant is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, it may be necessary to take the case to trial to earn fair compensation there.
