Common Auto Accident Causes and Injuries
Under Texas law, you can receive compensation for a car accident injury if you can prove another driver is responsible. In certain cases, you can also file a claim if specific third parties like negligent car manufacturers or road maintenance services are liable for the accident.
In the Fort Worth area, car accidents are often due to driver negligence such as:
- Disregard of traffic laws
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Texting while driving
- Driving while under the influence (DWI)
Regardless of the specific cause of your car accident, the range of injuries you may suffer can have lasting consequences for your health and require extensive rehabilitation to enjoy a pain-free life and return to work.
Common auto accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head or neck problems
- Spinal cord injuries
Do not wait to seek medical treatment after a car wreck to prevent lasting health problems. Contacting a Fort Worth car accident attorney right away also helps you receive appropriate medical care and get started with your recovery.

The Legal Process After an Auto Accident in Texas
Your first step after getting into a car accident should be to seek immediate treatment. We recommend that you then write down everything you can remember from the events. This can help us gain a better understanding of the situation during our initial consultation.
We always make efforts to create a personalized strategy no matter when you reach us after your accident, but we advise that you get in touch as soon as possible so we have as much time as possible to build your case.
Other useful actions you can take before or after our first appointment include:
- Request a copy of the police report on the car accident
- Keep track of any communications you have with the insurance company
- Collect any pictures you took at the accident scene
- Keep a list of your symptoms, pain levels, and physical or mental limitations due to your injuries
Our team can walk you through the process and your legal options, although we can handle all negotiations with the insurance companies and communications with various organizations such as medical providers and experts. This allows you to focus on your rehabilitation and can significantly reduce your stress during these challenging times.

“I needed an attorney who would stand up for me and my child during a very hard time. Mark was there to answer every question, every phone call and did it in a way that I felt as if I were his only client. He was very knowledgeable not only about the law but about the opposing attorney and the judge. He prepared me well and we won our case. I would recommend Mark Childress to anyone who is fighting for custody or in need of child support.”
I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care.
“I called in inquiring about a divorce and how it all happens. I had 2 people call me back within an hour and in an hour maybe 2 I was talking with the lawyer. I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care. Divorce is the hardest thing we will go through minus losing a kid and his team will be retained. He even called me back himself the next day to see how I was. Great service.”
This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years.
