Do I Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
Perhaps the biggest mistakes car accident victims can make after a crash is to try to move on without pursuing a claim, or trying to pursue that claim alone. When struggling with injuries, psychological trauma, and financial difficulties due to medical bills, car damage, and missed work, a person is in no condition to attempt to get justice on their own. Most individuals in Dallas have minimal experience with the legal system. The law around car accident claims is complicated and can be confusing for someone with no prior experience.
There is a lot you will need to do after a car accident, so there is no reason to try to navigate this system alone or to forget about a claim altogether. A car accident lawyer can help you with your case and help you find compensation. They will know how to handle the legal complexities, and they’ll be able to organize the required evidence. While an attorney takes care of the legal side of your accident, you can focus on the important task of taking care of yourself.

These injuries often require extensive medical procedures and prolonged hospital stays, all of which can be quite expensive. If your accident was the fault of someone else, you can hold them financially responsible for your costs. Through a lawsuit, you can force them to pay for your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, lost earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering, and any other related costs.
In addition, many people are unfortunately killed in car accidents every year. If your loved one was killed in a car crash caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you can pursue a wrongful death claim to win financial compensation from them. This compensation can help pay for your loved one’s final expenses, as well as loss of support and companionship. You may also be able to pursue punitive damages to further punish the person who harmed your family and discourage similar behavior in the future.
Facts About Texas Car Accidents
Throughout Texas in 2012, there were roughly 63,000 serious crashes in the state, with 87,000 people sustaining severe injuries from these crashes. The majority of collisions occur in urban areas, such as Dallas, but many auto accidents also occur in rural communities. Dallas is a large metroplex that sits in the center of several different highway systems. This influx of drivers and motor vehicles leads to the potential for numerous vehicle collisions.
Large cities such as Dallas, Houston, and Austin have begun no refusal weekends as an effort to combat drunk driving crashes. During these weekends, law enforcement officers can pull over suspected drunk drivers and have a magistrate on speed dial who will approve a warrant for a blood test to test the driver’s blood alcohol content level.
In 2012, Dallas had nearly 25,000 reported car accidents, out of which 128 were fatal, and 3,500 resulted in serious injuries. This is no small number, but is yet only a fraction of the over 325,000 car accidents which were reported throughout the entire state. Throughout the whole of Texas, the most common crash contributing factor is speeding, accounting for 23,000 collisions in 2012.
Speeding, driver distraction, failure to drive in a single lane, driving under the influence, and driving under the speed limit are several of the top contributing factors for serious accidents. If a driver participating in any of these factors caused an accident which resulted in injuries to yourself or family members, you are entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
