If you have been injured due to another driver’s negligence, you probably face a long and complicated path toward recovery. Better understanding the process and what is at stake can help you move forward with increased purpose and the peace of mind that comes from being better prepared – come what may.
Your Rights Matter
If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured, you have important rights that are well worth fighting for. The at-fault driver who caused you to be injured in the car accident carries car insurance intended to kick into action in just such a situation. The only problem, however, is that insurance companies are for-profit companies that tend to be more than willing to dig deep in their efforts to pay out as little as possible to accident victims like you. The best way to help ensure that your financial rights are protected throughout your car accident case is by working closely with an experienced Texas personal injury attorney.
The Insurance Company
The insurance company involved in your case understands that you are in the vulnerable position of being injured, of watching your medical bills mount, and of experiencing decreased earnings, and it is not averse to taking advantage of your precarious position. In fact, the insurance company may try any one or more of the following tactics to help it maintain high profits:
Making an early settlement offer that does not come close to covering your full range of physical, financial, and emotional damages (before you have even had the opportunity to assess said damages fully)
Complicating or prolonging the claims process to the point that you simply give up
Denying your claim from the outset in the hope that you will not continue to pursue the matter
Attempting to shift blame for the car accident away from the at-fault motorist and toward you
The insurance company is fully invested in settling for as little as it can get away with. Still, a dedicated personal injury attorney will build your strongest claim while skillfully advocating for its best possible resolution.
The damages associated with a severe car accident can be overwhelming, including:
Property damage to your vehicle
Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Ensuring that your complete range of damages is well represented in your car accident claim is essential to your ability to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled and that you need to pursue your fullest recovery.
