Dedicated lawyers skilled at demonstrating driver negligence
To have grounds for an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit after you are injured in a Texas car accident, you must be able to show that other drivers were principally at fault. Grounds of liability include:
- Distracted driving — Texting while driving has been illegal in Texas since 2017, yet this activity remains an all-too-common form of distracted driving. Other conduct like eating, drinking and grooming can also prevent drivers from giving their full attention to the road.
- Careless driving — Speeding, running a red light and erratic changing of lanes are examples of driving a vehicle without regard for the safety of other people or property.
- Impaired driving — About a quarter of all fatal crashes in Texas involve drivers who were under the influence of alcohol. Illicit substances and improperly used prescription drugs can also alter a driver’s ability to maintain safety behind the wheel.
An accident may result from causes other than driver negligence. Poor road conditions contribute to many accidents, as do vehicle malfunctions and weather conditions. We conduct thorough investigations and assemble evidence of possible human error that may be a basis for establishing fault and supporting a damages claim.
Strategic negotiators pursue settlements to cover medical bills and lost wages
Under Texas’s modified comparative negligence rule, a person or entity can be held liable up to their percentage of fault for the accident. So a driver who was 80 percent at fault must pay that percentage of the victim’s medical bills, lost income, vehicle repairs and other relevant expenses.
Establishing fault and providing an accurate calculation of accident costs are the keys to negotiating a satisfactory settlement or winning a verdict in court. Our attorneys meticulously build cases to prioritize these issues. As your legal representation, we will maintain open communication throughout the process, keeping you aware of the possible and likely outcomes for your case.
