This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of car accident cases in Laredo and other Texas areas. I felt it was necessary to discuss this issue due to the fact that many auto wreck victims are unsure of what steps to take after they or a loved one have been injured by another’s negligence. Failing to take immediate action, however, can potentially limit the amount of recovery to which a victim is entitled. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a personal injury attorney. Contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed a number of topics over my recent articles. The issues which I have analyzed included:
- Comparative fault in car accident cases
- Car accidents which involve commercial defendants
- Dealing with insurance adjusters after an accident
- How distracted driving impacts liability
- Discovery in car accident cases
- Taking an auto wreck case to trial
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these matters. First, many victims do not realize that they may still be able to recover damages even if they were partially at fault for the incident. Under Texas’ comparative fault laws, a victim can receive compensation as long as they were no more liable for the accident than was the defendant. Second, cases which involve commercial defendants, such as delivery drivers, can be complicated as they may implicate numerous parties. Third, in a case involving serious injuries, it may be some time before a settlement demand can be sent to an insurance adjuster. Fourth, the rise in distracted driving makes it crucial that your counsel fully investigate the matter through discovery. Finally, knowing what to expect from trial can help a victim to have reasonable expectations.
One point I stressed in each of these articles is the need to contact a car accident attorney who is experienced in handling such matters. My practice is focused on protecting the rights of individuals over those of large companies or governmental entities.
