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:

  • Speeding
  • 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 injury 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:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head or neck problems
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries

Do not wait to seek medical treatment after a car wreck to prevent lasting health problems. Contacting a personal injury attorney right away also helps you receive appropriate medical care and get started with your recovery.

Why Choose Us for Your Car Accident Case in Fort Worth, Southlake, or Tarrant County?

If you worry about the cost of hiring an auto injury attorney, do not worry! Our lawyers will not ask for any fees unless we win your case. In addition to no upfront cost, we can also issue a “letter of protection,” which allows you to seek the medical services your need to heal without having to pay your bills until the final settlement.

We fight for your rights and your future, and we conduct a thorough investigation to establish all relevant facts to your case. Our lawyers can review the accident site, talk to any witnesses, collect medical records, evaluate police reports, and consult any necessary experts.

Thanks to our understanding of the law, we are in an effective position to negotiate with insurance companies. Our attorneys keep pursuing legal solutions until we reach an appropriate settlement to help you rebuild your life. We are also aware of all time limitations that can affect your claim and we make sure we pursue legal actions within the authorized timeframe.

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.
