Texas Car Accidents: Answers to 4 Basic Questions
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, you likely have many questions. You also, however, have your health and wellbeing to focus on, and you simply may not feel like you have the resources to move forward with a car accident case. The answers to these four basic questions will help you move forward toward obtaining the best possible resolution for your claim.
Is Hiring a Lawyer Beneficial?
If another driver’s negligence has left you injured in a car accident, first seek immediate medical attention and then hire an experienced Central Texas personal injury lawyer. A skilled lawyer has the experience and capability to help you coordinate your entire case. While you got down to the important job of regaining your strength and health, your attorney will help you attend to the important task of building your case, which includes preserving pertinent evidence, obtaining eyewitness statements, dealing with the insurance company on your behalf, and preparing for court – if it should come to that. If you have been injured in a car accident, you need an experienced personal injury attorney.
What If I Cannot Afford an Attorney?
Nearly all personal injury attorneys who represent victims of car accident cases are willing to do so on a contingency basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and that the lawyer will collect a predetermined percentage of whatever he or she collects for you in the case. If some else's negligence has injured you, an experienced, reputable Central Texas personal injury lawyer will aggressively advocate for the compensation to which you are entitled and will not charge you until he or she has collected on your claim.
What If I Cannot Afford a Rental while My Car Is Being Repaired?
If another driver has left you injured, that driver’s insurance company – after investigating the accident and determining fault – should cover your rental car while you wait for your damaged car to be repaired. Again, your personal injury lawyer will advocate on your behalf if it becomes necessary.
What If the Insurance Company Quickly Makes Me an Offer?
Be very wary of any hasty settlement offers made by the insurance company. Insurance companies increase their profits by keeping their money as long as possible. If the insurance company is making you an offer up front, it is very likely that the amount they are offering will not cover all of your damages, and once you have accepted the offer, you have no further recourse.
