What should I do immediately after a car accident in Dallas?

Immediately after a car accident, ensure your safety and the safety of others. Move to a safe area if you can, call 911 and request medical attention if needed. It is important to report the accident to the police and obtain a copy of the accident report. Additionally, exchange information with the other driver, including names, contact information, insurance details and license plate numbers. If possible, take photos of the accident scene, your vehicle and any injuries sustained. Also, contact the car accident attorneys at Link & Associates as soon as possible. We can answer your questions and help you get the maximum available compensation for your injuries.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim for a car accident in Texas?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. This means you have two years to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. However, it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is handled properly your rights are protected.

Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company?

It’s advisable to speak with a personal injury attorney before giving a statement to the other driver’s insurance company. Insurance adjusters may try to minimize your claim or get you to accept a quick settlement that is less than what you deserve. Our car accident lawyers can help you navigate these conversations and protect your interests.

What if the other driver doesn’t have insurance?

If the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, you may still have options for financial recovery through your own insurance policy if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Our car accident lawyers can help you understand your policy and assist with your claim.

Can I still recover damages if I was partially at fault for the accident?

Texas follows a “modified comparative negligence” rule, which means you can still recover damages if you were partially at fault, as long as your level of responsibility does not exceed 50%. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. We encourage you to contact our law firm in Dallas if you have questions about these matters.

What types of damages can I recover after a car accident?

You may be entitled to various types of damages, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, property damage, pain and suffering, and more. Each case is unique, so it’s important to consult with a car accident attorney to understand the full range of damages you might be eligible for based on the specifics of your case.

How is fault determined in a Texas car accident?

Fault in a Texas car accident is generally determined by the rule of negligence. This means the person who failed to exercise a reasonable standard of care, thus causing the accident, may be considered at fault. Evidence such as police reports, witness statements, traffic laws, video footage and photos from the scene can all be used to establish fault.

Do I need to go to court to settle my car accident claim?

Not necessarily. Many car accident claims are settled out of court through negotiations between your attorney and the insurance company. If an agreeable settlement cannot be reached outside of court, your case may go to trial. An experienced car accident lawyer at our firm can guide you through either process, aiming to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation.
