Why You Need a Kingwood Car Accident Lawyer
Pursuing a claim after a severe car accident can be incredibly complex to navigate on your own. Evidence can quickly fade, and the at-fault party’s insurance company will be focused on how to pay out as little as possible. Once you hire a lawyer, they will begin investigating right away to obtain crucial proof for your claim. They will protect your right to fair and full compensation.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents can happen at any time and are most often caused by another driver’s negligence. Common types of accidents include:
Failure to yield
Drunk driving accidents
Distracted driving accidents (e.g., texting behind the wheel)
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
No-contact collisions (e.g., one driver’s reckless behavior causes another to swerve and hit a pole, even though the two vehicles never made contact)
In Texas, every party involved in a car accident will be assigned a percentage of fault. As long as you are found less than 51% at fault, you can obtain compensation. However, your settlement or award will be reduced by your percentage of the blame. For example, if you settle for $50,000 and are found 20% responsible, you will recover 80% or $40,000.
Types of Available Compensation
After thoroughly evaluating your case, a car accident attorney can help you determine if you are entitled to the following compensation:
Current and future medical bills
Current and future lost income
Diminished earning capacity, if your injury makes a difference in the amount of income you can earn now compared to before the accident.
Pain and suffering
Punitive damages if the at-fault party exhibited a reckless disregard for the safety of others.
To recover fair compensation, it is critical to call the police after an accident for a report to be made and to seek medical care as soon as possible. Take photos of the accident scene if possible and never admit fault. Keeping a journal of your daily pain and symptoms will also be helpful when it comes time to determine the value of your claim.
