How Will a Texas Car Accident Lawyer Help Me?

There are certain limitations on the types or amounts of damages that may be recovered in a personal injury case. For uninsured drivers, it is important to realize that you are not entitled to noneconomic payments suffering damages. This is true even if the other driver is totally at fault for the accident. Non-economic damages include payments for things like disfigurement, pain and suffering, inconvenience and physical impairment. An uninsured driver is able to recover non- economic damages if they are in an accident with a driver who is operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that driver is later convicted of DUI associated with that accident. No matter what type of damages can be recovered in a Texas car accident case, every car accident case is unique and you need to schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable car accident lawyer to find out the type of damages that you may be able to recover from a negligent party. You may be able to recover compensation for some or all of the following:

  • Disfigurement
  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Impairment
  • Punitive damages
  • Pain and suffering

If the other driver fails to exercise reasonable care, then a breach of duty occurred that could leave him or her as accountable for the injuries you sustained in an accident. Some of the most common behaviors that a driver may engage in could compromise the safety of others include:

  • Driving too slow
  • Driving in an impaired state
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Driving too fast
  • Failing to yield the right of way

      The experience of being involved in a vehicle accident is scary one, particularly if you were not at fault for the incident. There are several different things you should do to protect your own health and as well as your well-being should you choose to move forward with the personal injury lawsuit down the line. These include following these steps:

      • Contacting the authorities and emergency services to have them come to the scene even if you are not yet sure whether there is significant property damage or injuries.
      • Do not try to move your vehicle off the roadway if it could cause further accidents or endanger other people.
      • Take pictures of any skid marks or collision damage of your car with your cellphone.
      • Get the addresses, phone numbers and names of any eye witnesses.
      • Get the insurance contact information for the other drivers involved.
      • Note down anything you remember about the accident and speak with any witnesses in the area about what they saw as well.
      • Do not ever admit fault to the other driver.
      • Contact your car insurance company and let them know about the accident but do not agree to a settlement offer until you have had the chance to talk to a lawyer first.

      Texas Insurance Laws Regarding Car Accidents

      Immediately after an accident, it is recommended that you contact an attorney. With so many steps that must be managed immediately after the accident occurs, it is also wise to be aware of the laws regarding how long you have to file a claim. Every state sets a time limit for the period during which you must go to court and file a lawsuit after you have sustained some type of harm.

      This is known as the statute of limitations. A person who has been injured in a Texas vehicle accident or other personal injury incident has a maximum of two years from the date of injury to go to court and to file a lawsuit against someone who could be held responsible. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this time period, there is a good chance that the court will refuse to hear your case at any point of time in the future and your right to compensation will be lost completely.

      Typically, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will contact an individual and try to get a statement or legal access to his or her medical records. You should never do this without first consulting with an attorney because the other insurance company is there to represent their client or to minimize their own liability. This means they are not looking out for what is best for you. It is your right to have experienced legal representation at your side to deal with the other party's insurance company and potentially even your own insurance company. Your Texas car accident legal team may even engage experts such as someone involved in the field of accident reconstruction to provide reports for testimony that could be used if the case goes to trial. Some of the steps that may be handled by your Texas car accident lawyer include:

      • Investigation of the accident
      • Reconstruction of the accident by experts
      • Managing the release of your medical information
      • Ensuring that you get appropriate medical treatment
      • Negotiating with insurance adjusters
      • Managing a medical evaluation of your condition
      • Filing a bad faith insurance case where necessary
      • Analyzing the insurance policy limits and other sources of compensation to which you may be entitled

    Mr. Reyna represented my wife in a personal injury case.  She was hit from behind an 18 wheeler and the insurance company denied much of the medical bills.  Mr. Reyna personally met with the insurance company executive and worked out a settlement much higher then she expected.  Mr. Reyna and his staff are kind and professional.  Two thumbs up!
