Insurance companies have a duty to give car accident victims the money they need to rebuild their lives. At-fault commercial drivers who cause car accidents have the same duty. Unfortunately, those companies don’t do the right thing unless somebody forces them to. That’s our job. Our firm has taken on the biggest companies in the world, holding them accountable for hurting regular people on America’s streets and highways. If we take your case, you can trust that we’ll fight our hardest for you. No matter what.
The Importance of Seeking Compensation
Boat, car, and truck crashes affect people in ways we can't predict. All we can predict is that you'll need support to survive while you get better. Otherwise, you may be forced to work while injured—and you'll pay for that decision sooner or later. Some people don’t have that option at all. The best way to secure your future is to hold reckless drivers (and insurance companies) accountable for their behavior. That's what our motor vehicle accident attorneys are here for.
A car accident claim can help you get compensation for losses such as:
- Past and future medical costs
- Occupational therapy
- Wages lost due to medical treatment
- Future earnings lost due to disability
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of comfort or companionship
- Disfigurement or scarring
We have secured more than $10 billion for people who were severely harmed by the negligence of others. Our experience with collisions equips our law firm to identify the best avenue for obtaining a settlement or jury award for your injuries. In the case of long-term injuries, we work with economic experts to ensure that your compensation will give you financial security for decades to come. We spare no expense, use every resource, and make every effort to rebuild your life. No matter what.
“They were very helpful in me evolving through this tragedy, basically. The stress that I was under—they made me feel relaxed. I know that if I called them now and I needed something, they would help me get whatever I needed.” Donna Deason
Talk to any of our previous clients, and you’ll hear the same thing: our clients are family. We spend months listening to their fears, helping them get the medical care that they need to truly recover, and giving them advice on everything they’re facing. Our clients trust us with their lives, which is why every case is personal for us.
We know the playbook that insurers will use on car accident victims. They’ll delay your case, offer you a low-ball settlement, accuse you of being at-fault, or simply deny your claim outright. You need an attorney who knows how to go toe-to-toe with the biggest insurers in the world and get them to do right by you. We aren’t intimidated by these companies, so you don’t have to be either.

"Always bet on justice. It takes a lot of time and resources to win a case against big defendants, and some cases are easier to win than others. But this doesn’t matter at Arnold & Itkin. We take the cases that we must win because it’s the right thing, the ones we have to win—even if it’s hard. Especially if it’s hard." Kurt Arnold Founding Partner Meet Kurt
“People call me when something terrible has happened and they need help. It is personal to my clients, so it is personal to me. We have to win—no matter what.” Jason Itkin Founding Partner Meet Jason
We win because we put
in the work, no matter what.
When we take a case, we don’t go halfway. Our team pours everything we have—resources, time, creativity—into getting our clients what they need. We thrive on the late nights, the hours of prep, and the pressure of trial. It’s how we’ve beaten opponents who were better funded or had bigger numbers. We put in the work. No matter what.
When a tragedy becomes a headline, people call us. It’s why we represented a third of the Deepwater Horizon crew, numerous survivors of the Geismar plant explosion, and widows of the sinking of the El Faro. It’s why victims of 18-wheeler accidents or massive pileups call us before they’re even released from the hospital. We’ve been there for our clients on their worst day, no matter what they’re facing. Injured people choose us because we fight hard no matter what, even when the eyes of the nation are on us.
What Can I Recover in a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim?Every accident is going to be a unique case, but in general there are a various damages almost any car accident survivor will be able to claim. These include medical expenses, lost income and future earnings, and funeral costs if a loved one was killed. In addition, you may be able to recover non-economic damages for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of companionship or care, and more.
What If I’m Partially at Fault?Claimants don’t need to be completely faultless. Under comparative fault laws, a claimant can still claim a portion of their damages in proportion to their fault. So, if a person is found 20% at fault, they can still claim 80% of total damages. This means if a car accident claim is worth $1 million, they can claim up to $800,000. Under Texas comparative fault laws, a claimant must be less than 51% at fault to recover anything from a claim. Proving to what degree a claimant is at fault will be part of their case.
What Happens If the Insurer Won’t Cover Me?It’s common for insurance companies to delay or deny cases if they feel that a claimant is desperate to settle or unlikely to pursue litigation. Delay tactics include switching adjusters without warning or repeatedly asking for documentation when everything has already been provided. If your insurance company won’t offer you a fair payout under your policy, then your only choice is to call an attorney.

Our clients never get an invoice or a bill. As a result, any car accident victim has access to world-class representation.
