This is the first post in a series which will deal with the topics of handling Laredo, Texas, car accident/collision cases. I have decided to write on this issue due to the fact that many victims, for understandable reasons, may be unsure of what to do when they have been the victim of another’s negligence. If immediate steps are not taken, however, a victim may lose their ability to recover damages. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will help people to understand their situation. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a personal injury attorney. If you have been in a wreck then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I will be addressing a number of topics over my coming articles. The issues which I will analyze include:
- How Texas’ comparative fault laws apply to car accident cases
- Dealing with cases involving commercial defendants
- Dealing with insurance adjusters in serious injury cases
- How distracted driving impacts such matters
- The need for discovery in such cases
- Taking a case to trial
I have chosen to address these issues for multiple reasons. First, many defendants do not realize that they may be able to recover damages even if they were partially at fault for the accident. Second, cases which involve commercial entities (such as those involving delivery drivers) can implicate multiple defendants. Third, the process of dealing with insurance adjusters can be lengthy. Fourth, distracted driving can greatly impact the calculations of comparative fault. Fourth, discovery is crucial to proving a defendant’s negligence. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process is crucial to making sure your rights are protected.
