While many people believe that the police determine fault after a semi-truck crash in Texas, the police report is just one factor used to determine fault and assign liability. Insurers will look at the following factors when assigning fault:


  • Police report

  • Eyewitness statements

  • Your statement

  • The statement of the other driver


Once the insurance company of the truck driver and/or the trucking company he works for compiles this information, they will assign fault - usually in the form of a percentage. However, as experienced Denton crash attorneys, we know that the insurance agent has his company's best interests at heart - not yours. Therefore, we urge all of the accident victims we speak with to never give a statement to the insurance company. Even if you don't believe what you say will implicate you, agents will work to get you to admit fault. This saves them money and leaves you without the compensation you need to pay your medical bills.
