Brownsville Car Accident Attorney
Advocating for Car Accident Victims in the Rio Grande Valley
Even a seemingly minor car crash can be terrifying and life-changing. If you are injured in any type of collision, you may be concerned about how you will pay your medical bills or afford repairs to your vehicle. When a car accident is not your fault, you should never have to worry about how you will cover these and other expenses.
At the Amador Law Firm, we are committed to helping victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents obtain just compensation. Our Brownsville car accident lawyer can help you take legal action against all liable parties and provide direct, personal attention throughout each stage of the process. We are a family firm with a proven track record of obtaining outstanding results for our clients, and our team is ready to put our experience and skills to work for you. You will pay nothing unless we win. We are also flexible to your needs, which is why we offer same-day and after-hours appointments.
When you are involved in a car accident, you should call the police if anyone (including you) is physically injured. Avoid admitting any level of responsibility at the scene, and exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver(s) and any witnesses. Document as much of the crash scene as possible. See a doctor soon after the accident to establish a link between any injuries and the crash.
Next, hire our Brownsville car accident attorney and file an insurance claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company. Do not accept any settlement until you have spoken to a legal professional. Keep in mind that many Texas drivers carry only the relatively low level of insurance required by state law, and these policies may not adequately cover your losses. In these instances – or in situations where the insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement – you may need to consider taking civil legal action against the negligent driver.
In Texas, you will only have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If a car crash results in death, the victim’s loved ones will have up to two years from the date of the victim’s passing to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Many car accident lawsuits do not end up going to trial. The negligent driver’s legal representatives will likely attempt to negotiate a settlement. Our team at Amador Law Firm is committed to protecting your interests and will advise whether it makes sense to accept an offer or litigate the matter in court.
A successful Texas car accident lawsuit can help you recover compensation for many types of losses, including:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
- Physical pain
- Mental suffering
- Punitive damages
If the case does go to trial, the court will evaluate each party’s role in causing the accident. You will be assigned a level of fault that determines how much you can ultimately recover. For example, if you are found to be 25% responsible for causing the collision, your total damage award will be reduced by 25%. If you are found to be 51% at fault or more, you will most likely be unable to recover any compensation.
We know what it takes to win these cases and how to effectively advocate for you in court. After reviewing your circumstances, we will help you understand the compensation you are entitled to and walk you through each step of the litigation process. No matter the complexity of your situation, our Brownsville car accident lawyer will always work to maximize your recovery.
