Statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration have shown that car wrecks involving large trucks and buses (18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tow trucks, dump trucks, and other commercial vehicles weighing over 10,000 pounds) have increased in the past several years. These trucks, due to the nature of their size, can cause serious and permanent injuries to unsuspecting drivers and passengers of other vehicles on the road.

Bus Accidents
Bus accidents are very similar to commercial vehicle accidents such as 18-wheelers, tow trucks, and dump trucks. Bus drivers and the bus company are usually governed by the same state and federal safety regulations. However, if you are struck by a government bus or any government-owned vehicle, you must comply with strict state procedural rules in order to file a personal injury claim. Our office is trained to quickly and accurately satisfy the guidelines of The Texas Torts Claims Act, specifically, the notice requirement of Section 101.101.

Our Personal Injury Process

Protect Your Rights

Insurance companies often take advantage of accident victims during the vulnerable time period following a traumatic incident. Our legal team will immediately take over all communication with the insurance companies to protect your rights. This includes preserving evidence and documenting the facts of the case while they are still fresh.

Medical Treatment

We will connect you with leading medical professionals in your area to diagnose and treat your injuries. If you are unable to afford medical treatment we can facilitate treatment on a medical lien basis, which means you pay nothing up front; rather, your medical bills are paid out of the settlement proceeds, if any. at the conclusion of your case. After all injuries are diagnosed and treated we will be in a position to place an appropriate settlement value on your personal injury claim and begin negotiations with the insurance company.


All documentation supporting your claim will be organized into a “demand package” telling the story of your case to the at-fault insurance company. The insurance company will review these documents and respond in the form of an acceptance, a counter offer, or a rejection. Our office will communicate with you during this negotiation and you will have the final decision.

Pre-Litigation Settlement

The majority of our cases settle in the pre-litigation stage, prior to filing a lawsuit. When your case settles, you will sign a settlement release that officially closes your case in exchange for the agreed amount of financial compensation. Our law firm will also negotiate with your medical providers to lower your bills and maximize the money in your pocket.

Filing A Lawsuit

If the insurance company’s offer is unreasonable, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf. This process will elevate your claim and often results in higher settlement amounts. Our law firm will pay for the costs of litigating your case so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.


Although jury trials are rare, we prepare every case as though it will go before a jury. This requires gathering additional evidence and hiring experts who will testify in support of our case. A deposition is your opportunity to tell your story under oath. We also question the at-fault person under oath to gather crucial information we will use at mediation or trial.


Prior to a jury trial, your case will likely go before a mediator who is a neutral party responsible for listening to both sides of the case and making settlement recommendations. Your case may settle at this stage if the mediator can help the insurance company realize the full value of your case. Arbitration is similar to mediation and is required when we are collecting from your own insurance company, rather than the at-fault person’s insurance company.

Jury Trial

This is the final step in getting you the compensation you deserve. Our experienced trial lawyers will present your case to a jury of your peers who will ultimately decide the amount of financial compensation they believe is fair after hearing all the evidence.

Why are we different from other lawyers?

Why Should I Get A Personal Injury Attorney Soon?

Most people delay calling a Dallas personal injury attorney to help them fight the insurance companies. This is what insurance companies want. The longer it takes the victim to hire a car wreck attorney the less likely you will get the property damage and personal injury money you deserve. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. The insurance companies do not care about your physical or mental health. They do not care if you are without a vehicle for weeks. They do not care that their insured’s negligence caused you property damage, medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish, physical impairment, permanent disfigurement and/or lost wages. They are just worried about their bottom line. It sounds confusing but our Texas car accident lawyers will explain the entire process of how you can get the money for your property damage, medical bills, pain and suffering, etc. Insurance companies have attorneys on staff, you should too. Call or text us at 1-800-672-3911.

What Is The Insurance Company Not Telling Me?
Every case is different but in general here are some of the industry secrets:

  • Insurance companies do not want you to know of your rights.
  • Insurance companies do not want you to know that you are entitled to be compensated for not only the injuries you sustained in a car wreck but also for how your life has changed because of those injuries.
  • Insurance companies do not want you to get the full property damage you are owed.

You are entitled to monetary compensation for the pain you had to feel due to someone else’s negligence and for the everyday things that you can no longer do. That is what a good Texas accident attorney can ensure you receive. Call or text us at 1-800-672-3911.

Why Is "Accident" The Wrong Word For Car Wreck?
Matthew Pillado, PLLC tries not use the word “accident.” The word “accident” presumes that no party is at fault. In commercial truck accidents and car accidents, somebody is usually at fault. Matthew Pillado, PLLC understands this and is the reason why the personal injury attorneys at Matthew Pillado, PLLC fight as hard as they do for you. You are the victim and you should be compensated for all of your damages. Call or text us at 1-800-672-3911.
About Personal Injury Compensation.
The compensation awarded to a victim by a judge or jury is usually intended to compensate the injured person for the amount he or she was damaged due the accident or injury. The compensation is meant to make the victim “whole” again from a monetary standpoint (to the extent that is possible).
