While every car wreck case is different, there are some common themes found in every matter. First, there is an accident that was caused by a negligent driver, and second there is an injury. The third prong is establishing the amount of damages, and seeking compensation for your injuries. It takes a thorough analysis of the facts to establish why an accident happened, and who caused the wreck. Many times diagrams and eyewitness testimony are required to make these findings. As for the injuries, physician notes and invoices are typically used to show how a person was hurt, and this evidence is what will be presented to the claims adjuster when seeking compensation.
In the event you are unable to reach an agreement with the negligent driver’s insurance company, your matter will be decided by the Court. In order to make this happen, you must file your claim on time. In Texas, you have two years after an accident to file a case. Our approach is to take the following three steps, to ensure you don’t miss the deadline and that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled:
● Investigate the facts, and develop them in a way that is presentable to the insurance adjuster.
● Engage in negotiations with the adjuster to resolve your claim.
● File a lawsuit, to preserve your ability to bring the matter before the Court if negotiations do not prove fruitful.
Keep in mind that just because a lawsuit is filed, that does not mean your matter will ultimately land in the hands of a Judge or jury. Filing the case does not cut off our ability to continue seeking a fair settlement with the insurance company, and it can be an effective bargaining tool in some instances. We prepare your case for whatever course of action will yield satisfactory results, and work with you every step of the way. Call our office for a review of your case today.
