After a severe car accident, you may need time to focus on your health rather than the legal aspects. A car accident lawyer will take care of investigating your collision and collecting evidence to ensure the responsible party is held accountable. That may include:
Taking photos of the scene and collecting available video footage.
Getting copies of the police reports.
Taking witness statements.
Obtaining copies of medical records related to your injuries and treatment.
Consulting experts in accident reconstruction to prove liability and/or medical experts who can testify to the extent of your injuries.
Speaking to the insurance company and negotiating a fair settlement.
Representing you in court if trial is necessary to obtain the compensation you deserve.
Many car accident lawyers have years of experience dealing with insurance companies and know what it takes to recover the maximum amount of compensation possible.
What Types of Compensation Can You Recover?
The types of compensation you can recover after a car accident in Friendswood include but is not limited to:
This includes current, and future costs for any hospital stays, surgeries, doctor’s visits, physical and occupational therapy, medication, medical equipment, ongoing treatment, etc.
Reimbursement for any income lost while recovering and potential income or benefits you will lose in the future. For instance, if your injury requires that you work fewer hours or at a lower-paying job than you had before the accident.
For the repair or replacement of your vehicle and any other personal items that were damaged.
Pain and Suffering
Compensation for the pain caused by your injuries, emotional distress, and any loss of your ability to participate in and enjoy activities that you used to engage in.
Texas operates under a “modified comparative fault” system, which means your compensation can be reduced based on your percentage of fault in causing the accident. For instance, if you are awarded $100,000 and found 20 percent at fault, you can only recover 80 percent of your award or $80,000. However, if you are more than 50 percent to blame, you cannot receive any compensation.
