18 Wheeler Accidents – The Critical Importance of a Thorough Investigation

This Blog was brought to you by the Carabin Shaw Law Firm, Principal Office in San Antonio

The Critical Importance of a Thorough Investigation

Once an accident involving an 18-wheeler takes place, it is vital that a thorough investigation is launched into all of the circumstances that surround it. Such an investigation will not only help you identify the cause of the accident and help you determine responsibility, but it will also enable you to collect the critical evidence that will be necessary to prove your case in a court of law. As was previously mentioned, the plaintiff in a truck accident case bears the burden of proof. The court does not want to simply be told how to decide a case; judges and juries need to be able to see, touch and hear evidence that supports your case. The compelling evidence that can be produced by a detailed investigation can make the difference between you winning your case and leaving the courtroom with nothing. More info on this website
The trucking accident attorneys with our Law Office are intimately familiar with how to conduct a painstakingly detailed investigation. Our standard procedure is to immediately race to the scene of an accident in nearly every single trucking accident we take. Once we arrive at the scene, we immediately begin working to uncover evidence. There are all kinds of items that can be of immense help to you in proving your case, including physical evidence such as pieces of wreckage and skid marks, statements of witnesses, photographs and video evidence, police reports, test results, and much more. We can find this evidence and preserve it in a manner that it can be used in court to prove your case.

However, you have to be aware that the other side in your case will be doing almost the exact same thing. Representatives for the defense will also visit the accident scene and pore through the wreckage looking for any sliver of evidence that they can use to suggest you, yourself were the cause of the accident. These defense operatives are normally sent to an accident scene almost immediately after it occurs. They will have with them investigators and other professionals who are experts in re-creating accidents. They know they need to begin their investigation as quickly as possible, because the longer it takes them to start looking for evidence, the better the chances that the evidence they are looking for will have been altered or even disappeared completely.

There is one recent case that our firm handled that illustrates the need for quickly launching an investigation. In this case, our client had been blamed for an accident that took place at night, when his car hit a truck. The defense maintained that our client was to blame because the car he was driving had no headlights. When we were called to represent him, we immediately went to the salvage yard where the remnants of his car had been sent. Sure enough, we discovered that his car, indeed, had no headlights. We were not satisfied by merely seeing that the car was missing its headlights, so we decided to check the salvage yard’s security cameras. While looking at surveillance tapes, we saw that a representative of the defendant had entered the salvage yard and removed the headlights from the car that belonged to our client. Armed with this critical evidence, we were able to expose the underhanded attempt by the defense to avoid responsibility. That footage was scheduled to be taped over 24 hours later; if we had not immediately launched that investigation, that critical evidence may have been lost forever.

We cannot stress enough the importance of quickly conducting an investigation. The defense has already started, so you have to start as fast as possible. Again, the evidence tends to disappear once an accident takes place due to weather conditions and other factors. Plus, witnesses’ memories can become cloudy or they will simply decide they no longer want to get involved. Our attorneys can normally build extremely strong cases even if we are not contacted for months after an accident takes place. However, the best cases normally ensue when we are immediately called. Please do not waste any time in contacting an experienced trucking accident lawyer. We know the turmoil you are going through, but time is of the essence.

Surgical Malpractice in Texas – Personal Injury Law

Clearly Identifying Those Responsible for Surgical Malpractice in Texas

Surgical malpractice defendants aren’t always the surgeon or anesthesiologist. Intensive Care medical professionals can sometimes be the culprit; either alone or in conjunction with the surgeon as he or she is in charge of your post-surgical care. Many times, the failure to correctly diagnose the medical condition that led to your surgery can be the cause of your injuries. It’s even possible that other medical professionals, like a technician or a pharmacist, may have negligently contributed to the malpractice. Maybe improper drugs were used in the surgery, or drugs that were defective, in which case the blame for the surgical malpractice may be laid at the feet of the drug manufacturer through a defective product lawsuit. The same thing might apply to a piece of equipment that was used in your procedure. If it was not maintained properly you have the right to sue the hospital.personal injury due to medical negligence

The bottom line is that any, or all, of these healthcare professionals or product manufacturers can be responsible, and could be held accountable for their negligence in civil court. It makes no difference if their involvement was overt or passive.

Rare is the instance where offending medical defendants are not covered by various insurance policies. Though this is good news because you know the money is there to compensate you, it’s certain that a medical malpractice lawsuit that is filed against any (or multiple) liable parties will draw aggressive opposition from every insurance corporation involved in the case. It’s every malpractice insurance company’s job to aggressively challenge all such cases in Texas.

Another reason malpractice lawsuits are often the most challenging forms of personal injury or wrongful death cases to argue is that the medical profession is, by its very nature, highly technical and very sophisticated. Another reason these cases can be so convoluted is that a number of liable parties responsible for the injury can cloud the issue of actual culpability for your injuries. Someone has to investigate this complicated matter and come up with the right defendants if your malpractice case has any reasonable chance for success. And because there can be so many potential defendants, a lot of finger-pointing goes on between multiple defendants. So laying the proper blame is a very difficult order for your legal investigative team. These are only a few of the many reasons why injured victims have no better than a minuscule chance of winning a Texas medical malpractice claim without the legal help of an experienced Texas surgical malpractice lawyer.

A skilled attorney knows how to locate and retain the right surgical and post-surgical care experts to thoroughly review your treatment records, determine whether your malpractice lawsuit is justified, and then back up your claims in court. These forensic experts can also help determine the degree of responsibility from all of the parties that were involved in your inferior surgical care. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys have the means and the skill to apply that thorough investigation of your case through this considerable evidence into an effective and winning strategy that gives you the best chance to be fairly compensated for your damages which can include your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and disability the inferior surgery causes.

With over 30 years of experience in personal injury and wrongful death law, including medical malpractice, our Law Firm can help you identify all responsible parties in your malpractice suit, and assist you in seeking fair compensation from them for their negligent behavior that made your injuries even more painful. We can also work to make certain they will not repeat their careless actions, and harm some other unsuspecting patient.
