What to Do After an Auto Accident

After an auto accident, following the advice of medical professionals and law enforcement is crucial. The police will conduct an investigation, obtain witness statements, and compile evidence, culminating in an accident report vital for filing a compensation claim.

Take the following steps:

  • Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Prioritize your health by promptly seeking medical treatment. Even seemingly minor injuries may have delayed symptoms.
  • Contact Your Insurance Company: Inform your insurance company about the accident. Provide essential details but avoid admitting fault without legal guidance.
  • Call Our Car Accident Lawyer: Reach out to our experienced attorneys to protect your rights and navigate the legal process effectively.
  • Document the Scene: Capture photographs of the accident site, vehicle damage, and injuries. Obtain a copy of the police report for reference.

Common Injuries Resulting From Auto Accidents

Here are some of the most frequent injuries:

  • Whiplash: A rapid jerking motion can cause this neck injury, which can cause headaches, pain, and stiffness.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: The power of the collision often affects the arms, legs, ribs, and collarbone.
  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and concussions can be minor or severe, impacting memory and cognitive abilities.
  • Back Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord and herniated discs can result in persistent discomfort and impaired movement.
  • Internal Injuries: Damage to internal organs such as the liver, spleen, or lungs can be fatal and requires immediate medical attention.
  • Cuts and Lacerations: Shattered glass and impact with the vehicle's interior can cause significant cuts and bruises.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: It is typical to sustain sprains, strains, and contusions that impact the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Chest Injuries: Blunt force trauma can result in internal organ damage, including the heart and lungs, as well as injuries like broken ribs.
  • Burns: These injuries can result from exposure to hot surfaces or car fires. They may require medical attention and possibly leave lifelong scars.
  • Emotional and Psychological Trauma: Being in a car accident can cause anxiety, sadness, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

If you've been injured, consulting with our car accident lawyers serving Brazoria County can ensure your rights are protected and you receive the appropriate compensation for your damages.

Who Is Liable for an Auto Accident?

In most auto accident cases, the burden of proof lies in demonstrating the other driver's partial or complete liability for the accident and your resultant injuries. This is due to the fact that insurance companies often dispute your claim by arguing you bear some responsibility or that you don't deserve compensation due to your partial fault.

An experienced auto accident attorney can help you counter these claims. Insurance companies have extensive resources, including teams of investigators and adjusters committed to minimizing your payout. Do not face them without legal help of your own.

Claims of your partial liability may be based on:

  • Negligent or reckless driving
  • Overspeeding given road conditions
  • Non-adherence to traffic laws
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Careless entry into traffic
  • Wrong lane or roadside driving
  • Driving in a "no-passing" zone or on the road's shoulder

Our Brazoria County auto accident attorneys will refute these claims, arguing you were not at fault and should receive compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident Case

Texas follows a "modified" comparative negligence standard, allowing you to sue for damages even if you were partially at fault for the crash. However, if you are found to be more than 50% to blame, recovering damages becomes challenging.

The insurance company will argue that you are not owed any compensation because you were over 50% at fault for the accident. To prove that you are not, our Brazoria County car accident lawyers will need to show that you were not driving negligently, recklessly, or in any way that would have contributed to the accident.

We aim to establish the other driver's liability for the accident, so you can recover the maximum damages available to you, even if you were partially at fault for the accident.

Recoverable damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium

Understanding Texas Car Accident Laws

Understanding Texas car accident laws is crucial to safeguarding your rights and securing fair compensation. At Lozano Law Offices, P.C., our seasoned car accident attorneys possess extensive knowledge of Texas regulations and offer expert guidance through every step of the legal process.

Key points to understand about Texas car accident laws include:

  • Comparative fault: Texas follows a modified comparative fault rule or “proportionate responsibility”, meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.
  • Statute of limitations: In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the accident. It's important to take legal action within this time frame to preserve your right to seek compensation.
  • Insurance requirements: Texas law requires all drivers to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance coverage. Our attorneys can help navigate the complexities of dealing with insurance companies and ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.

By understanding these key aspects of Texas car accident laws, you can make informed decisions and protect your legal rights after a car accident.
