Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most technologically advanced diagnostic tools available today. MRI uses a powerful magnet, low-intensity radio frequency pulses, and computer technology to create detailed images of the soft tissues, muscles, nerves, and bones in your body. MRI scans are used to evaluate the spine, joints, and head. These images are vital towards developing a plan to treat your injury. There are two types of MRI scans – MRI with contrast and MRI without contrast.

MRI with Contrast

A contrast is a dye like substance put into the body intravenously prior to the MRI scan. An MRI with contrast allows your physician to get a clearer image of the injured area.

MRI without Contrast

MRI without contrast is the usual MRI procedure which is done without the use of the contrast agent. The results of the MRI procedure are as valuable and relevant as those done with the use of a contrast agent.

What to Expect

Preparation for an MRI will depend on the type of exam your doctor has requested. Before your MRI scan, please contact us, so we can provide specific instructions and review your health and insurance information. Because the MRI produces a magnetic field, you will be asked to wear metal-free clothing and to remove any metallic objects, such as jewelry, watches, and hair clips.

Our Conclusion!

AN MRI scan is a valuable tool a specialist uses to treat an injured patient. Schedule a consultation with one of our rehab specialists in one of our pain clinics conveniently located in Plano, Waxahachie, and Grand Saline.

Liable Parties for a Truck Accident

Liable Parties for a Truck Accident

Who Can You Hold Liable for a Semi Truck Accident?

When it comes to a commercial trucking operation, there are several parties involved. But who can you hold liable when a trucking accident occurs? The usual suspects are:

  1. Truck Driver
  2. Trucking Company
  3. Vehicle Manufacturer
  4. Loading Company

Truck Driver

The leading cause of commercial trucking accidents in the US are truck drivers. Some of the common reasons why a truck driver caused the accident include:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Alcohol or Drug Impairment
  • Speeding
  • Medical Problems
  • Violating Hours of Service Rules

It is important to find an experienced attorney who will investigate the driver involved to find out if he or she has a record of driving violations. Additionally, your attorney should be able to review the data from the black box recorder to determine if the truck driver was speeding or failed to brake in time to prevent the accident. Call our office if you need a recommendation to an attorney who can help you.

Trucking Company

Trucking companies can be help liable for the actions their employed drivers. Often times, the trucking company becomes responsible for resulting damages. So why can the trucking company be liable?

  • Failure to test its drivers for drugs and alcohol
  • Neglects to hire qualified drivers
  • Does not provide proper training to its drivers
  • Hires drivers with poor driving records
  • Forces its drivers to violate the hours of service rule

It is not unusual for a trucking company to try to avoid liability by claiming the driver was an independent contractor and not an employee of the company. This is something your attorney can discover, helping solidify your case.

Vehicle Parts Manufacturers

A defective automotive part resulting in the trucks failure to operate safely can also be a cause of an accident, and potentially making the parts manufacturer liable for the accident. Defective parts can contribute to failures such as:

  • Transmission Failure
  • Tire Blowouts
  • Brake Failure
  • Steering Failure

An experienced attorney can determine if the part in question was defective part installed, or if was previously recalled.

Loading Company

Most commercial trucking companies outsource the loading responsibilities to another company. That loading company is responsible for ensuring the cargo is properly and safely secure. If the cargo is not secure, the cargo may fall out of the back of the truck, or shift while in motion causing the truck to flip on its side.

Our Conclusion!

If you were the victim of a commercial trucking accident, hire an experienced attorney who can help uncover the liable party. If you have been injured and are in need of medical care, or have a Letter of Protection document and in need of care, schedule a consultation with our medical providers in one of our injury and rehab clinics conveniently located in Plano, Waxahachie, and Grand Saline.
