Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer
An experienced attorney can help you at every stage of your claim—from assisting you with finding medical care and filing your claim to successfully negotiating a settlement or fighting for compensation in court. Without an attorney, the at-fault party’s insurance company will not believe there is a threat of a lawsuit. As a result, they will likely try to place the blame for the accident on you to reduce their liability and payment. Under Texas’s modified comparative negligence law, your percentage of fault will reduce your compensation. For example, if you are awarded $100,000 and found 30% to blame, you will only recover 70% or $70,000. If the insurer can successfully argue you are 51% or more at fault, you cannot recover any compensation.
What Damages Can I Recover After a Car Accident in Deer Park?
If you are eligible to file a lawsuit against a negligent driver, you may be able to receive the following financial compensation (often referred to as “damages”)
Economic (Actual) Damages: These are actual financial losses. Some examples include:
Medical bills: Emergency visits, hospital stays, physical therapy, rehabilitation, outpatient procedures, prescription medications, in-home care, future treatment, etc.
Property repair or replacement
Lost wages from missed work
Diminished earning capacity (if you are no longer able to earn the same level of income as before the accident)
Non-Economic (General) Damages: Compensation for personal losses, for instance:
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment of life
Loss of opportunity
Loss of consortium
Physical impairment (e.g., disability, loss of a limb)
Punitive Damages: This type of compensation is rarely awarded and is only recovered in cases involving an at-fault party who acted with an extreme disregard for others’ safety. Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar harmful acts by others.
How Much Will a Deer Park Accident Lawyer Cost?
Many Deer Park car accident lawyers will handle a car accident case on a contingency fee basis. This is an agreement where an attorney assumes all of the risk by advancing the costs of pursuing a claim and will only get paid if their client does. In other words, you do not have to pay anything upfront to retain their services and will only owe legal fees if you recover compensation.
