    If I’ve been in an accident with a semi-truck in the Rio Grande Valley, when should I contact their insurance for compensation?

    The answer is first to contact an expert personal injury attorney.  Insurance carriers for trucking companies may offer inadequate compensation for an accident.  And if an injured person signs an agreement to accept the suggested amount, it’s tougher to receive more.  When the insurance carrier realizes an expert lawyer is ready to fight for fair compensation after an accident with a big rig, they can become more reasonable about a claim.

      A Factoid About Harlingen, Texas

      Lon C. Hill purchased the tract where Harlingen is approximately located, from Mrs. Henrietta King of King Ranch. The initial purchase was made for exactly 13,837 acres for $1.50 to $2.50 an acre depending on the condition of the land. Our founder, Lon C. Hill, envisioned a railroad, the initial development of an irrigation system and a deep water port for Harlingen on the Arroyo, which was later developed in and around the fertile lands of Harlingen. In 1904, an unfortunate turn of events happened to the Hill family. Mrs. Hill and a son died in November of Typhoid Fever. Three months later, Mr. Hill took his children to the partially completed ranch house in Harlingen after the deaths in their family. The hub and town center of Harlingen was Van Buren and First Streets where a hotel, general stores, hardware, drug stores, a barbershop, saloons, blacksmith shop, etc. made their home.
