Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable With An Experienced Houston Car Accident Attorney

When a driver chooses to drive recklessly and endanger those around them, they also need to be responsible for their actions’ consequences. When their insurance company and lawyers are trying to minimize the compensation they need to pay, you need to have an attorney of your own to protect you.

What We Do For You

One of the biggest mistakes an accident victim can make is to accept a settlement offer that is less than they deserve. As your legal representation, it is our job to maximize your compensation to cover the costs of the whole amount of your injury, including:

  • Lost income
  • Current and future medical bills
  • Physical and emotional therapy
  • Scarring or burns
  • Loss of bodily function
  • Pain and suffering

When there are so many costs to your injury, accepting a settlement that barely covers your first medical costs leaves you to pay for everything else.

We are more than ready to negotiate on your behalf to secure the best possible outcome in your compensation claim. If negotiations cannot lead us to an agreeable outcome, we are not afraid to settle things through litigation.

Frequently Asked Car Accident Questions

After a car accident, an injury victim may face difficult and confusing times. Here, we share some of the most common questions and explain how an experienced personal injury attorney can make a difference. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our firm.

What should I do after a car accident?

Your safety should be your priority at all times. Get yourself out of danger and ensure your passengers and everyone else involved are OK. Call 911 if no one has called emergency services. Cooperate with law enforcement, but only talk about facts. You should never say “sorry” or suggest that you were somehow at fault for the accident. In addition, we encourage you to get a medical evaluation, even if you do not have visible wounds or feel ill. This will also help establish a medical record that your attorney can use to calculate your fair settlement.

How much is my settlement worth in Texas?

Every car accident is unique, as are the resulting injuries. The value of your settlement depends on the accurate estimation of the damages you experienced due to your car accident. However, settlements should include a set of common damages, like:

  • Past, current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages (past and future as well)
  • Costs of damage to property (your car)
  • Other noneconomic factors such as pain and suffering resulting from your injuries

If you are unsure if your settlement offer is fair, our knowledgeable attorneys are ready to help you.

How fault is determined in a car accident?

It is determined through the analysis and investigation the insurance company adjusters carry out. Adjusters review pictures, the police reports, testimonials, maps and other materials to determine the party at fault of an accident. They will also use the relevant Texas traffic laws and driving rules.

Should I call a lawyer or my insurance company first?

Based on our experience, we encourage injury victims to call an attorney first. Insurance companies have lawyers and experienced negotiators who may push you to accept an offer that does not represent your actual needs. An attorney can help you learn what you are entitled to according to your damages and can advocate for your best interests.

What Are Common Car Accident-Related Injuries?

There are many factors in the severity of a car accident and the injuries an accident victim sustains. Even a seemingly minor accident can leave you with long-term physical ailments. Some common injuries include:

  • Cuts, lacerations and burns
  • Fractures and crush injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Wrongful death

This is in no way an exhaustive list of all the possible injuries a motor vehicle accident can cause. No matter how well you feel, receiving a doctor’s exam can rule out latent or hidden injuries like concussions and internal bleeding. If the doctor finds that a reckless driver’s negligence has harmed you, make Badders Law Firm, P.C. your next call.
