How much money is my case worth?

Like any personal injury claim or lawsuit, the value of your car accident claim depends on a variety of factors. Generally speaking, the extent of your damages has a significant bearing on the value of your case. This includes the cost of your medical expenses, the cost of your missed wages, expected medical costs in the future, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.

I was in an accident, but don’t feel injured. Should I see a doctor?

Yes. No matter how severe the initial accident was, it is imperative to see your doctor. Some injuries may not be apparent for several days – even weeks. Severe brain injuries, called traumatic brain injuries (TBI), may not be apparent for months after the accident. Because of this, it is important to seek medical help, even if you do not immediately identify an injury.

What happens if I’m partially responsible for the accident?

Auto accidents are complicated, and many collisions are the result of multiple party’s negligence. In some cases, you can seek compensation for the portion of the accident that wasn’t your fault. Additionally, it is important to understand that, in the event of a personal injury lawsuit, only the court will determine who is at fault for your accident. Unnecessary apologies may be used as evidence against you in court.

Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company?

The short answer to this question is no. Never give a statement to the opposing insurance company without consulting your personal injury lawyer first. While you may be obligated to talk to your insurance provider, you are not required to speak with the other driver’s insurance company about the accident. Instead, contact a lawyer to discuss the details of your case first.

I’m a passenger – can I still get compensation for my damages?

You can seek compensation for your damages even if you were a passenger in the liable driver’s car. As a passenger, you have the same rights to seek compensation for your injuries, like anyone else involved in the accident. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you can seek financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, ongoing medical care, and more.

When should I contact a lawyer regarding my case?

Speak with an attorney as soon as possible following your accident. The Texas statute of limitations allows two years from the date of your injury to file suit. This is a narrow window of opportunity given that many injuries are not obvious immediately after car accidents. Additionally, it is important to the contact a lawyer quickly to avoid unprepared conversations with your insurance company.

The insurance company offered me a settlement – should I take it?

Never take a settlement from the insurance company without speaking with an attorney first. In many cases, the insurance company will make an initial offer to resolve your case quickly, but won’t provide the compensation you need to pay for your damages. By speaking to an attorney, you can avoid an unfair car accident settlement and seek the compensation you deserve.
