Laredo injury attorney assisting Texas residents who were hurt in a car crash
Drivers are required to obey the rules of the road. A car crash victim may be entitled to compensation if the other driver failed to follow traffic laws and such a failure is what resulted in the accident. There are many instances in which a defendant’s negligent driving causes an accident. Examples of such incidents include a defendant speeding in excess of speed limits, failing to properly signal a lane change, tailgating the victim and causing a rear-end collision, failing to stop at an intersection, and more. Texas law will allow a victim to be compensated as long as they were no more than fifty percent responsible for the accident. Any lawsuit must be filed within two years of the incident.
A car accident case begins with the Plaintiff’s lawyers contacting the Defendant’s insurance carriers. The carriers will then deal with counsel directly while the Plaintiff is receiving medical treatment. Once the extent of the Plaintiff’s injuries is known, and a future prognosis can be reached then counsel will send the carriers a settlement demand. This demand will include a request for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, other economic damages (such as job retraining if it is shown that the victim cannot return to work), and for pain and suffering. If a fair settlement offer is not made then then counsel will file a Petition with the Court in order to initiate a lawsuit. If necessary the case will proceed to trial. The matter will be presided over by a Judge and the jurors will decide the issues of fault and damages. Trial in such matters can be complex and it is important to have quality legal representation.
