Truck Accident Attorney Discusses Legal Recourse for Victims

In the wake of the recent truck accident, we sat down with renowned truck accident attorney, Marc Lenahan, Esq. With years of experience in handling cases involving large commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers, Mr. Lenahan offers insights into the options available to victims injured in 18-wheeler accidents. In this exclusive interview, he discusses the steps victims should take to protect their rights, the parties that may be held accountable in truck accident cases, and the significance of seeking legal representation promptly to pursue a civil case.

Darla Medina: Our pleasure, Mr. Lenahan. With your experience in handling truck accident cases, could you shed some light on what options might be available to injured victims?

Marc Lenahan, Esq.: Absolutely, Darla. When individuals are involved in accidents with large commercial vehicles like 18-wheelers, the consequences can be devastating. Victims may face severe injuries, substantial property damage, and emotional distress. In such cases, they have the right to pursue compensation through a civil lawsuit against those accountable.

Darla Medina: And who might be held responsible in a truck accident case like the one we just reported?

Marc Lenahan, Esq.: Truck accident cases can be complex, involving multiple parties who could share responsibility. The primary parties involved include the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the cargo being transported, and even the manufacturer or maintenance provider in certain situations.

Darla Medina: Interesting. So, what steps should victims take immediately after such an accident to protect their rights and build a strong civil case?

Marc Lenahan, Esq.: Time is of the essence in these cases. The first priority is to seek medical attention for any injuries, no matter how minor they may seem. It is vital to document and preserve all evidence related to the accident, such as photos of the scene, vehicle damage, and contact information of witnesses.

Darla Medina: That makes sense. And when should victims consider seeking legal representation for their truck accident case?

Marc Lenahan, Esq.: Consulting with an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible is crucial. An attorney can help victims understand their rights and navigate the legal complexities of these cases. They will gather evidence, investigate the accident, and engage with insurance companies and liable parties on the victim's behalf.

Darla Medina: Excellent advice, Mr. Lenahan. Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about truck accident cases in Texas?

Marc Lenahan, Esq.: Certainly, Darla. I want to emphasize that truck accidents can be life-altering events, and victims should not bear the burden alone. Seeking legal representation can help level the playing field and ensure their rights are protected. As a local attorney, I am dedicated to helping victims and their families seek the compensation they deserve.
