We Know How To Deal With Every “Trick” That Trucking Companies Use To Avoid Paying Accident Claims.
Have You Been Injured In A Trucking Accident In Texas?
After you’ve been hit by a semi-truck, 18-wheeler or large commercial truck, the last thing you want to think about is dealing with the insurance company to protect your injury claims. You want to focus on receiving medical help, and getting back on the road to recovery.
However, there are a few things it is in your best interest to know about being in a trucking accident in Texas:
While you are still recovering from what happened to you, the trucking company might have already sent their investigators to the crash scene to look for any evidence that will protect them – the trucking company – against any lawsuits. The trucking companies’ attorneys & investigators are instructed to do whatever it takes to protect them.
Unfortunately for you, the trucking company’s #1 objective is to minimize any injury claims they have to pay. In short, they will do anything they can to not have to pay you. Some “tricks” that they might use are 1) Try to get a recorded statement from you. (TIP: Do NOT agree to speak to any insurance adjuster before talking with an experienced trucking accident attorney) 2) Offer you a very low amount to settle out of court. Without the threat of lawsuit, the insurance companies will only offer you the lowest settlement they think you will accept. Never accept the first settlement the trucking company’s insurance company offers you! 3) Delay Tactics. Trucking companies will often try every excuse in the book to keep pushing back the the date of your trial. With an experienced attorney who knows how to handle all of these “bogus” delay tactics, you will be tried fairly and Hopefully, you have a lawyer who knows how to battle the trucking companies and push for your case to be tried fairly in a reasonable amount of time.
Despite their efforts to avoid any claims against them, there are in fact many laws and regulations their drivers MUST follow, and if found breaking any of these laws, you have the advantage to getting the compensation you deserve. This is why it is so important that the attorney you hire is extremely familiar with these laws, because they will know how ensure that these laws protect the person they are intended to protect: YOU.
In short, the trucking companies are used to their drivers getting in accidents and they have a finely oiled machine that immediately goes to work with their scare tactics, delays, low-ball offers, and other tricks to minimize what they have to pay. Trying to face this alone can be daunting. Luckily, you don’t have to. We are here to stand up to the trucking company & protect YOUR rights.
In short, the trucking companies are accustomed to their drivers getting in accidents and they have a finely oiled machine that immediately goes to work with their scare tactics, delays, low-ball offers, and other tricks to minimize what they have to pay.

When you have been involved in an auto or trucking accident, it is critical that you take immediate steps to protect your case. What you do in the hours and days after an accident can completely change the outcome of your case- and can sometimes ruin your chances of recovery.
Insurance companies, trucking companies and big corporations have experienced adjusters and attorneys on their side who know exactly what they are doing. They go to work protecting themselves from the responsibilities they owe to you the very first day they learn of the accident. This sometimes means they have investigators and other professionals hired to protect them against you and to your detriment. They absolutely won’t stand up for your rights because their interests are adverse to your best interests. DO NOT put your trust in them. You ARE NOT IN GOOD HANDS when dealing directly with an insurance company, trucking or corporate representative!

Sam, You did as good a job on this case as I have ever seen by a plaintiff’s lawyer…You did a great job for your clients. I hope I am always on your side, and if I ever have a case to refer (fingers crossed) you are on the top of my list.
I was involved in a car accident for the first time. I did not know what to expect or what I needed to do. My paralegal and attorney were knowledgeable, attentive and responsive regarding all my concerns and questions about the process whether it was via phone or email. They partner with physicians all over the city and almost all were close to home or work which was extremely convenient. I was very pleased with the manner in which they handled my case. I hope I am not involved in another accident again but if so I’m confident in Maida’s ability to represent me.
They are very skilled law firm. Worked hard to ensure the highest level of service to me as a client and as a person. First class service. I would use their service again if needed and recommend to others
I definitely recommend the Maida Law Firm for anyone who’s been injured in a car accident. Maggie and her team made sure I was able to fix my car quickly and then they worked tirelessly to represent me. I moved to the UK to pursue my master’s halfway through the year and despite the time difference Maggie kept in touch and was able to get everything done for me quickly and efficiently. The process was very easy and everyone was friendly, helpful, and kind. I feel very lucky to have come across the Maida Law Firm when my accident happened. Thanks again for all of your help!
Sam and his team are amazing! They were there for me and my family during one of the most difficult times of our lives. They worked very hard to get us the compensation we deserved. They were by our side every step of the way and never at any point did we feel lost or in the dark about the case. We were treated like friends, not like clients. We highly recommend The Maida Law Firm!
I hired the Maida Law Firm after I was injured in an accident. They have one of the most professional staffs I have ever worked with. They are always there to answer questions and make sure that their clients are taken care of every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking for representation for a personal injury claim.
Sam and his entire staff work very hard to settle my case and was able to get me a sustancial settlement . He is very personal and caring attorney who is always looking out for the best interests of his client ! I would definitely recommend The Maida law firm to all my friends and family !
I was involved in an 18 wheeler accident in West Texas in January of 2015 while off duty working Oil Rigs, I went back to work after and shook it off thinking everything was ok, I was wrong! After days of pain and discomfort I went back home to get checked out and after lots of test and dr. visits they found I had multiple cervical dislocations.I was floored.I couldn’t return to work and was now on medical leave. I wound up in Sam Maida’s office by pure divine intervention! Had no clue what I was doing and what I needed to do!Sam was really helpful and sympathetic to my needs.
Sam worked on a wrongful death suit for my family, and he was amazing. We were always in the know with the progress of the case, and he went over and beyond while handling our case. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
Thank you Sam, Maggie, Christina and the rest of the firm. You handled our situation in a professional and timely manner. Without your help, we couldn’t have received the medical attention needed to get us back on track. Thanks again.
I just want to say that my experience with the lawyer and his staff were excellent friendly service and good work thank you very much recommend it for its fine and pleasant attention. I congratulate you!
Solo quiero decir que mi experiencia con el abogado y su personal fue excelente cordial atención y buen trabajo los recomiendo muchas gracias por su fina y agradable atención. Los felicito!
