3 Facts to Know About Your Texas Car Accident Case

If you or a loved one have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are many aspects to keep in mind about the process, such as:  

Insurance Companies Do Not Have Your Best Interest in Mind

After an accident, it is likely for the at-fault party’s insurance company to contact you to ask for a recorded statement or try to offer you a small settlement. This can be tempting, but it is more often than not an inadequate offer. Without a professional assessment of the full extent of your injuries, including any potential future expenditures, there is no quick way to ensure their offer will be satisfactory. 

Insurance companies only have one thing in mind: to save as much money as possible and clear your case off its books as quickly as possible. Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums, not paying on claims. When you hire an attorney, you are giving yourself access to a professional who can help assess the full range of your losses and fight for the future you deserve after your accident. 

There’s a Time Limit to File

Texas currently has a two-year statute of limitations. This deadline begins the date of the accident and may seem like enough time, but it can pass quickly when you are injured, unsure of the proper legal process and procedures, and overwhelmed. This ticking clock is another reason to get on the phone with an attorney as soon as possible after a car accident. 

While you work on putting your life back together and healing after your accident, our team will walk arm in arm with you as we try to help resolve your issues from the accident, including filing a lawsuit to protect your rights and try to recover the compensation you deserve. 

Most Cases Do Not Go To Court

Most personal injury lawsuits are resolved outside of court. With the help of an experienced attorney, a settlement offer can likely be reached through a negotiation period. If a worthy settlement offer cannot be reached, our team is more than prepared to take your case to court and fight for you before a jury.
