Car Accident FAQ
Do I Need an Attorney After a Car Accident?
An experienced attorney will be able to pursue the compensation that you need after an accident—whether it’s from an insurance company or the at-fault party. In many cases, an attorney will be able to make a claim for a wide variety of damages not initially offered by an insurance company’s original settlement. This requires knowing the proper questions to ask about the accident.
Questions an attorney may ask to maximize your compensation include:
- Was the accident preventable?
- Was the other driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
- Was the other driver distracted by their cell phone?
- Was the other driver speeding or driving recklessly?
If you’re struggling to receive a proper settlement from an insurance claim, our Midland-Odessa car accident attorneys have the experience needed to help you. Because insurance companies prioritize shareholders over claimants, insurers often delay or deny claims to frustrate claimants and make them more likely to accept a low settlement. Our attorneys will seek to prevent that from happening.
What Can Midland-Odessa Car Accident Victims Claim?
Texas requires car accident survivors to make their personal injury claims within two years of the date of their injury. The state also employs a way of assigning fault called modified comparative fault. This means that every party involved with an accident is liable to receive a percentage of the blame. How much compensation you will be entitled to will depend on what extent the accident was the fault of the other parties; for instance, if you're found 10% at fault, your final compensation would be 90% of the total damages you've suffered.
Negligence that causes accidents includes the following:
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Reckless driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Poorly maintained roads
- Distracted drivers
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Defective vehicle parts
An attorney can fight to prove that the other party is chiefly at fault, entitling you to the compensation you need to move forward. Hiring a Midland-Odessa car accident attorney will help you navigate the comparative fault laws of Texas and increase your chances of getting what you need.
We can help you obtain compensation for losses including but not limited to:
- Medical bills caused by the accident
- Future medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages or earning capacity
- The wrongful death of a spouse, child, or parent
