No one ever wants to believe they will be a car accident victim. However, with the high traffic volume on Texas roads, motor vehicle accidents are becoming even more common. Every year motorists are injured on Texas roadways as a result of careless or negligent driving. Unfortunately, even minor accidents can cause a car injury victim to incur significant medical expenses and lost income.

In some extreme cases, victims may experience serious injuries that leave them with negative life-changing permanent conditions that require specialized medical care. Long-term care can quickly become cost-prohibitive for injury victims and their families.

Our law firm understands that many individuals do not like the idea of filing a lawsuit to obtain compensation. In many cases, the only way to hold the accountable party responsible for their negligent actions or inactions is to file a legal claim.

Why Do Most Car Accidents Occur in Texas?

Although car accidents can occur for any number of reasons, several commonly cited factors significantly contribute to collisions in Texas. With the advent of technology, more drivers are distracted by their cell phones and in-car electronics, such as their GPS and entertainment systems. Other passengers in the vehicle can also cause the driver to be distracted, contributing to an accident. Rear-end collisions are frequently caused by drivers who are texting while driving.

Aside from cell phone use, driver negligence is also a leading cause of Texas car accidents and includes drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs. Sadly, many accidents that involve drugs or alcohol result in head-on collisions that prove to be fatal.

Furthermore, failure to obey traffic laws, such as stopping at stop signs and intersections, can result in t bone and sideswipe accidents.

Some of the other most frequent reasons given in accident reports include:

  • Defective vehicles
  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Poor road conditions

Regardless of the factors that may have caused you to be injured in a vehicle accident, it is always in your best interest to consult with an experienced car accident attorney who can review your case and explain what legal options may be available.

If you have suffered a personal injury in an auto accident, you must hire a skilled attorney who can assist you with filing a compensation claim. Brasure Law Firm, PLLC is dedicated to holding the negligent driver responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.

Whose Insurance Pays For Damages in a Car Accident Case?

Texas is an at-fault state, meaning that the liable party’s insurance company is responsible for compensating the injured driver and other parties. However, in cases of multi-car accidents, it can often be difficult to determine who the liable parties are, which can severely complicate obtaining an adequate financial recovery.

In a hit-and-run accident, it can be challenging to recover money on a claim if you do not have the other party’s insurance company information. However, for this reason, it is essential that drivers also carry collision coverage or uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) coverage. Either of these types of insurance coverages would pay for repairs if the at-fault driver fled the scene. UM/UIM also covers damages caused by an uninsured driver.

However, an insurer often tries to deny or pay less than an insurance claim is worth. Sadly, in many instances, Insurance companies are more concerned with their financial bottom line than

When an insurance company fails to pay a claim, you will need a law firm unafraid to stand up for your rights. Brasure Law Firm, PLLC of Edinburg, TX, is familiar with the tactics that an insurance provider may use to avoid paying a fair settlement.

In other cases, the at-fault driver’s insurance company may demand proof of their policyholder’s liability. In both situations, it pays to have a well-trained attorney on your side who can collect evidence to present to the insurer to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

However, there are cases where the insurance provider is unwilling to negotiate. When the insurer is unwilling to reach a fair settlement, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to recover damages.

For this reason, the legal team of Brasure Law Firm, PLLC, is fearless when it comes to standing up for our client’s rights. Our legal team has extensive experience in helping clients obtain total and fair compensation that will give them the peace of mind they deserve.

How Can I Recover Compensation For My Car Accident Injuries?

Texas drivers have the option of buying PIP coverage that will cover medical costs should they be injured in an accident. If you are involved in an accident, you can file a PIP claim to cover essential medical treatment and other damages more quickly than filing other insurance claims.

PIP coverage often covers expenses such as:

  • Basic medical costs up to $2,500 unless a more comprehensive policy is purchased.
  • Up to 80% of your lost income.
  • Funeral expenses
  • Injuries to passengers

However, if the total costs of your medical expenses exceed your coverage limit, you will have to turn to the other party’s insurance company to recover damages. Texas drivers do have the option of purchasing policies of up to $5,000 to $10,000 of PIP coverage for an additional cost.

Under Texas law, an individual injured in an automobile accident has the right to try and recover economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are awarded to reimburse injured motorists for out-of-pocket expenses they have incurred as a result of being involved in an accident.

Some of the most frequently awarded damages include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

Economic damages also take into account costs such as prescription drugs, co-pays, and essential medical tests.

If you have suffered severe injuries, you may also be able to seek compensation that will cover physical therapy and rehabilitation costs.

Individuals who have suffered permanent injuries such as spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) will most likely require long-term specialized care. In addition, they may also require that their home or vehicle be modified to accommodate wheelchairs or other essential medical equipment. Specialized medical care and modifications to a home or vehicle can be cost-prohibitive for families.

However, with the help of our experienced attorney, our law offices can fight to try and help you recover compensation that will cover future medical expenses.

Non Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are granted based on the case’s unique circumstances and intangible losses the victim suffered due to being injured. Some commonly awarded non-economic damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring

It is critical to remember that every motor vehicle accident is different; therefore, every settlement will also vary. However, our personal injury attorney is highly qualified to assess your situation and determine a settlement amount that considers your out-of-pocket expenses and any other non-economic losses that pertain to your case.

Why Should I Choose Your Law Firm to Handle My Car Accident Claim?

If you have been involved in a car crash, it may be challenging to know what you should do first. If you have been severely injured, one of the last things you want to do is deal with the other party’s insurance company.

In many cases, the other party’s insurer may contact you through an insurance adjuster almost immediately after the accident. The adjuster may offer you a quick car accident settlement. Although a quick settlement may seem appealing, significantly if you have been injured and are unable to work, they rarely take your long-term needs into account.

On other occasions, the insurance adjuster may also request that you make a recorded statement detailing the facts of the accident. However, insurance companies have the legal right to use your statement against you to deny or lower the value of your claim.

Therefore, you should only speak with the other party’s insurance company after hiring an attorney to advise you of your rights. Brasure Law Firm, PLLC of Edinburg, TX, can act as your legal advocate with the insurance company to protect your legal rights.

If we agree to take your case, our legal team will immediately begin to gather evidence, such as police and medical reports, that will build and strengthen your claim.
