Texas law protects drivers who are injured by the negligent acts of another (i.e. someone driving drunk, distracted, drugged, drowsy or aggressively). Our state’s comparative fault laws allow one to recover as long as they were no more than fifty percent at fault for the incident. The first step after such a case is generally to send a demand for payment to the other driver’s insurance company. This demand will include a description of the incident, medical records, and calculations of how the amount being requested was reached. If a fair offer is not made by the insurer, then filing a lawsuit with the appropriate court will become necessary. Depending on the severity and type of the accident, it may be necessary to employ an accident reconstructionist in order to determine who was at fault. At trial, a judge or a jury will decide the extent to which the defendant was liable as well as the amount to be awarded.
Dan assists people throughout our area who have been injured by the negligence of another driver. When you retain our office, we will immediately contact insurance companies, medical providers, and other relevant parties so that they may deal with us directly.
We will obtain any police reports or witness statements related to the accident. We will also begin acquiring your medical records so that a demand to the insurance company may be formulated. If settlement cannot be reached, then we will not hesitate to file a Petition with the Court to initiate a lawsuit. Our office has standing relationships with accident reconstructionists in the event that liability in your case is disputed. Should the matter proceed to trial, then we will have used the discovery process to find evidence of the defendant’s negligence (such as whether they were engaging in distracted driving). We will defend your rights at trial and ensure that you know what to expect as the process moves forward. Contact us today to speak with our car accident lawyers.
