Car accidents are often preventable and caused by driver error or negligence—for example:
In other cases, neither driver may be at fault, for instance, if the collision was due to a vehicle or part defect or dangerous road conditions.
Texas operates under a “fault” system, which means that the party responsible for causing the accident is liable for damages. Insurance companies will perform investigations to determine fault before providing coverage. Injured victims can choose to file a claim with their own insurer if they have comprehensive or collision coverage or have the option to file directly with the at-fault party’s auto insurer.
Under Texas Insurance Code 542.056, an insurance company has 15 business days to accept or reject a claim after receiving all relevant information and statements. If they must take additional time, they have to contact you within 45 days. Once a claim is approved, §542.057 mandates that payment be made within five business days (in most situations).
The way you handle the aftermath of a car accident can have a significant impact on your compensation.
