Car Accident Claims in Texas
Car accidents can lead to all types of injuries that can seriously impact your life. These can include:
- Severe whiplash
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Crushed limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Your injuries can lead to extensive medical and rehabilitative expenses during a time when you are unable to work. These medical expenses alone can lead to financial ruin. Your claim with an insurance company for the recovery of these and other damages may be met with skepticism or outright denial. These companies are in the business of making money and reducing their payouts which means they may try various tactics to pay you as little (or nothing) as possible.

What to Do after a Car Accident
If you've been in a car accident, you first should seek medical attention for yourself and any other people involved. Additionally, there are several critical steps you should take if you've been in a car accident.
- If it's safe to move your car, move it to the side of the road or another safe location, such as a parking lot. Turn on your hazard lights to warn other drivers if necessary.
- Call the police to report the accident, even if it is minor. You will need a police report for insurance purposes.
- Exchange information with the other driver(s) involved in the accident and get the contact information of any witnesses.
- Take photos of the accident scene, the damage to all vehicles, and any injuries.
- Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible.
- Even if you don't feel injured, you should be seen by your doctor to ensure there are no hidden injuries.
Remember, it's important to stay calm and not admit fault or apologize at the scene of the accident. Let the police and insurance companies determine who is at fault, and speak with a Houston car accident lawyer as soon as possible following your accident.
Types Of Legal Cases We Commonly Handle
Texas Comparative Negligence Law
Under Texas law, if you are partially responsible for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by the portion of fault assigned to you. For example, if your damages total $20,000 and you were found to be 25 percent at fault, your damages would be reduced by that percentage, equaling $15,000. Insurance companies may try to use this law against you to reduce the compensation to which you are entitled. Because of this, you need a law firm that will fight to help you secure the full value of your claim.
"A lot of lawyers write on their websites that they "fight" and that they work "tirelessly" for their clients. The truth is that being a lawyer is more than just fighting or working tirelessly. It's knowing what to do at the right moment to get a fantastic result for a client. I go to trial if I have to. I fight if I have to. But most of the time, my job is to help people who cannot help themselves."
