Do You Know What to do After a Car Accident? Do You Understand Why it Matters?
All right: it finally happened. Everyone in your family is a great driver. You respect the speed limit, drive defensively, and give the other motorist the right of way. But still, you or a loved one has been involved in a major car accident near your home. It wasn’t your fault, and now you’re wondering what to do as you or your family members recover.
One thing that is most important, aside from your return to good health, is that you must protect your legal rights against those who would deny you fair damage compensation for your painful (and painfully expensive) injuries. Even if you’re insured, the person who hit you and caused all this mayhem must step up and pay for the medical bills, pain, suffering, lost income during recovery, and other damages. That includes his or her insurance company. More on this website
Your insurance company might be of some assistance as you sort this out through your PIP or uninsured motorist coverage. And that’s good. Eventually, the one who hits you has to pay for all of this. And in a sense, your “good hands” auto dealer is fronting you the money to pay your medical bills. But if the other guy (or his insurance company) doesn’t step up to the plate, that unreimbursed PIP or uninsured motorist coverage you have will end up forcing you to pay higher coverage rates to your carrier. Medical bills are just the tip of the iceberg that your insurance company can’t help you with, past those medical bills.
Many times a car accident can be little more than a minor fender bender in a parking lot. They can also be destructive wrecks that cause horrific injuries along with profound physical and psychological scars on the lives of the unlucky drivers and passengers. If it’s not your fault, regardless of whether it was minor or severe, you are likely entitled to seek compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional injuries you suffered in your car crash. It is impossible to know the amount of compensation you may be entitled to because the damages are relative to the unique circumstances of your case.
We will try and explain some of the basics of auto personal injury cases and help you understand the clear need to hire an attorney. It should be an attorney who has experience in personal injury, especially surrounding vehicle accidents if you hope to receive fair damage compensation. Some of you might feel you can handle this matter on your own. And if it’s just a little fender-bender with no complications or injuries other than a broken fingernail and wounded pride, you might be able to do that. For your own sake, especially if your auto car accident is serious, we strongly urge you to retain an experienced auto injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of Texas car accident claims and, if necessary – litigation. And you must do this as quickly as possible; otherwise, you’re asking for trouble. And your opponents will be all-too-happy to oblige.
The time after being seriously injured in a car accident is often stressful and confusing to the victims and their families. Don’t add to the stress and confusion by letting an inexperienced attorney handle your case or represent yourself when you are unqualified to look out for your or your family’s best interests. We are uniquely qualified and fully prepared to fight for and win the fairest compensation for your total damage claims.
