Most car accident claims are based on negligence. It is always within your best interest to consult with an attorney about your case before making any statements about your case or accepting a settlement offer.
To prove a claim for negligence you must show:
In some cases, the cause of the accident is clearcut, but in others it may not be so straightforward. An attorney can conduct an independent investigation to determine who or what caused the accident and whether you have a valid claim for damages.
In order to prove negligence, you will need to present evidence about the accident and your injuries.
Types of evidence that can be used to build a strong case:
An attorney can help determine what kind of evidence you will need to prove your case. It is a good idea to consult with an attorney as early in the process as possible.
One of the most common misconceptions is that an injured party is not able to obtain compensation if they are found to be even partially responsible for the accident.
Texas follows a comparative negligence rule meaning that an injured party can still recover damages if they are found to be partly at fault for the accident. Their recovery will be reduced in proportion to their share of liability.
If an injured party is found to be over 50% at fault, they will be unable to recover compensation from another at fault party.
