Even seemingly minor car accidents often have major repercussions on car accident victims and their families. In addition to emotional stress and trauma, the toll a car accident can take on one’s health can be severe. Often car accidents result in devastating injuries that cause extensive medical expenses, physical therapy, lost wages, permanent disability, or even death. On top of the pain and suffering resulting from the accident itself, pursuing car accident claims can be a lengthy and complicated process, causing more stress for victims and their families.
What to Know About Car Accident Cases
When a driver is involved in a car accident, there are many factors to consider when pursuing litigation for damages resulting from the crash. Primary among those factors is determining the cause of the crash. There are many potential causes of vehicle accidents, including:
- Improper maintenance of the vehicle
- Improper maintenance of the road
- Distracted drivers
- Fatigued drivers
- Drinking and driving
- Drug use
Other factors to consider after suffering a car accident injury are specific to Texas, which has complicated laws that affect litigation for car crashes.
For example, Texas has specific damage payout structures for car accident claims. Because we are an “at fault” state, the driver responsible for an accident in Texas is liable for paying claims associated with the accident. The amount the at-fault party pays is based on the percentage for which they are at fault. For example, if one driver is only determined to be 50% at fault for the accident, they are responsible for paying only 50% of the claim’s costs. This makes it crucial that victims prove the other driver was fully at fault for the crash. In addition, Texas also has specific laws regarding required minimum levels of liability coverage and statutes of limitations deadlines.
For victims of car accidents and their families, dealing with the details of proving cause, fault, and insurance coverage of the at-fault party can be much too stressful during an already difficult time.
