Commercial vehicle accident claims tend to be a bit more complex than other types of vehicle claims. This is due to a number of reasons. For one, commercial vehicles are usually larger than ordinary passenger cars and motorcycles. For another, the operators of these vehicles are employees of larger entities, either privately-owned business or local/state governments. As such, even if the operator of a commercial vehicle acts negligently, his or her employer may be partially or fully liable for the ensuing accident.

Filing a Claim against a Government Entity in Texas
If you were injured in a commercial vehicle accident involving a government vehicle, such as a city bus or train, you have the right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries and losses. However, personal injury claims against the government are complex and differ from other types of injury claims in a few important ways.
In Texas, you only have six months to file a formal claim with the specific government agency that you believe to be at fault for the accident. This claim will need to include certain details of the accident, such when, where, and how the incident occurred, as well as details of any and all injuries you suffered. An experienced San Antonio commercial vehicle accident attorney at our firm can assist you in this process.
