What to Know If You Are Involved in a Car Accident in Texas

Texas is an at-fault insurance state meaning that an injured party has the right to pursue compensation against the person or persons that caused the accident. If you are found to be partially responsible for the accident, you may still be able to pursue a claim for damages against another driver. However, your compensation may be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault. 

What Types of Damages Can I Claim in a Car Accident Claim?

You may receive compensation for all of your accident-related damages or losses. In Texas, you may claim both economic and non-economic damages. 

Depending on the circumstances of the auto accident, you may receive compensation for your:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Future care and treatment
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Pain and suffering

It is important to discuss your case with an attorney to determine how much you should ask for in damages before moving forward with your claim. At Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC, we can help you understand the legal process and determine the best course of action to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Will I Receive Compensation After an Auto Accident?

While there is no “average” settlement in a car accident claim, there are things that you can do to improve your chances of receiving a fair and full settlement or verdict. 

First, you need to seek medical attention immediately after the collision. Failure to seek medical attention may not only impede your recovery, but it could also directly impact your right to receive compensation for your injuries.

Next, you need to retain an attorney. Unrepresented injury victims often end up settling their cases for less than they are worth. A Texas car accident lawyer can help ensure that you receive the largest possible recovery on your case.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Texas?

In Texas, you have two (2) years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Failure to file a claim for damages within the statute of limitations may result in your case being denied. 

While two years may seem like a long amount of time to file a lawsuit, it is important to act fast. An insurance company may require a claim to be filed within a much shorter time period. In addition, the sooner you act, the more likely you will be able to collect the evidence you need to prove your case. 

What To Do After a Car Accident

After a car accident with injuries you need to:

  • Contact 9-1-1 or local law enforcement. According to Texas Transportation Code Section 550.026, a motorist is required to immediately report an accident that resulted in injury or death to a person or that caused enough damage to make the vehicle undrivable. 
  • Report injuries or deaths. If someone, including yourself or your passengers, is injured or killed you need to notify the police dispatcher. Emergency medical personnel may be sent to conduct an assessment at the scene and to transport injured parties to the nearest hospital.
  • Exchange information and collect evidence. It is unlawful to leave the scene of an accident without exchanging information with other involved parties. You should not make any statements to other motorists, but you should get their information as well as the contact information for any eyewitnesses. You should also take pictures and videos at the scene to document damages.
  • Seek medical help. It is essential to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible after a car accident. Even if you are not taken by ambulance to the hospital you should still go to the emergency room or urgent care as soon as possible. 
  • Contact an experienced attorney. Before speaking to the insurance company or signing anything, you should consult with an experienced car accident lawyer. A lawyer can help you understand your rights and discuss your legal options.
