Do You Know What to do After a Car Accident? Do You Understand Why it Matters?
All right: it finally happened. Everyone in your family is a great driver. You respect the speed limit, drive defensively, and give the other motorist the right of way. But still, you (or a loved one has been involved in a major car accident near your home in Texas. It wasn’t your fault and now you’re wondering what to do as you or your family members recover.
One thing that is most important, aside from your return to good health, is that you must protect your legal rights against those who would deny you fair damage compensation for your painful (and painfully expensive) injuries. Even if you’re insured, the person who hit you and caused all this mayhem must step-up and pay for the medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income during recovery, and other damages. That includes his or her insurance company.
Your insurance company might be of some assistance as you sort this out through your PIP or uninsured motorist coverage. And that’s good. But eventually, the one who hit you has to pay for all of this. And in a sense your “good hands” auto dealer is basically fronting you the money to pay your medical bills. But if the other guy (or his insurance company) doesn’t step up to the plate, that unreimbursed PIP or uninsured motorist coverage you have will end up forcing you to pay higher coverage rates to your carrier. And medical bills are just the tip of the iceberg of the damage that your insurance company can’t help you with, past those medical bills.
Many times a car accident can be little more than a minor fender bender in a parking lot. Or they can be destructive wrecks that cause horrific injuries along with deep physical and psychological scars on the lives of the unlucky drivers and passengers. If it’s not your fault, regardless of whether it was minor or serious, you are likely entitled to seek compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional injuries you suffered in your car crash. But it is impossible to know the amount of compensation you may be entitled to because the damages you have a right to seek are relative to the unique circumstances of your case.
This is why we will try and explain some of the basics of auto personal injury cases and help you understand the clear need to hire an attorney, any attorney, who has experience in personal injury; especially surrounding vehicle accidents, if you hope to receive fair damage compensation. Some of you might feel you can handle this matter on your own. And if it’s just a little fender-bender with no complications or injuries other than a broken fingernail and wounded pride, you might be able to do that. But, for your own sake, especially if your auto car accident is a wreck, we strongly urge you to retain an experienced auto injury attorney who knows the ins-and-outs of Texas car accident claims and, if necessary – litigation. And you must do this as quickly as possible; otherwise, you’re asking for trouble. And your opponents will be all-too-happy to oblige.
