Fighting to recover compensation after a car accident should not put you further into debt. That is why The Daspit Law Firm operates on contingency fees, which means that we do not collect attorney fees unless you are awarded compensation.

This allows you to focus on your health, while we focus on restoring your financial state. Whether you have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one to wrongful death in a car accident, you may explore your legal options and take action to protect your future.

What to Avoid Doing After a Car Accident

Navigating the claims process after a car accident can seem like a maze of paperwork, lost time and endless jumping through hoops. While most drivers only have to cope with insurance claims a time or two throughout their lives, insurance adjusters and accident investigators spend their lives dealing with this process and attempting to maximize the profits of their employers along the way.

Four things to avoid doing in order to protect your insurance claim:

  • Avoid saying You're Sorry. The moments following an accident can be shocking, and it’s easy to feel like you owe the other driver an apology, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. However, saying anything such as, “I’m sorry,” or “I didn’t see you there,” can be construed as an admission of guilt. Some insurance companies may ask if there were specific things said and these terms can be used against you and your claim.
  • Avoid signing anything before carefully reading. In the aftermath of a crash, everyone involved wants to get back to normal as soon as possible. Claims forms, damage estimates, and narrative statements can all run together, but it strongly behooves anyone involved to carefully read every document and consult an attorney with any questions. It is not uncommon to settle a vehicle damage claim prior to any potential injury claim, but one should carefully examine the paperwork to make sure a waiver of claims is limited to the vehicle.
  • Avoid setting your injury claim quickly. Insurance adjusters are highly motivated to settle claims and close files. For this reason, an adjuster may offer to settle an injury claim within a day or two of the accident. Some soft tissue injuries don’t fully present themselves for a couple of days after a traumatic event and it can take much longer to know the full extent. It is always prudent to wait a few weeks at a minimum to make sure an injury hasn’t occurred. If an injury has occurred, never settle a claim before reaching the point of maximum medical improvement, whether that means full recovery or not.
  • Avoid delays in treatment. An essential element of an injury claim is clinical documentation of an injury. Often, people assume “it will get better” and put off going to the doctor. If medical treatment is delayed, insurance companies may use the delay in treatment to complicate the settlement process. It is always prudent to obtain clinical documentation of any injury sustained in a car accident.

At The Daspit Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping clients protect their rights and options after a car crash. Our Texas auto accident attorneys want to help injury victims seek the maximum compensation to which they’re entitled.

Pursue Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries

If you have been injured in an auto accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to pursue monetary compensation.

There are many factors that can lead to accidents, injuries, and damages, and our attorneys have the experience and resources to establish liability.

Our firm handles all types of car accident claims, including:

  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Distracted driving accidents
  • Aggressive driving accidents
  • Uninsured motorist accidents
  • Uber and Lyft accidents
  • Car passenger injury

Cases are always unique, and there are many accidents that can lead to serious injuries and fatalities.

It doesn't matter what type of car accident caused your injury; if you suffered because of someone else's carelessness, you could be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Car Accident Injuries and Compensation

Although every accident situation is unique, there are a few common injuries that many victims sustain in an accident. Many of these injuries pose serious health problems if left untreated, and others may not show for years after an accident occurred. If you have been in a car accident, it is important to review these injuries and understand what you could potentially face in the future.

Some of the most common car accident injuries include the following:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burn injuries
  • Psychological damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash / neck injuries

Seeing a medical professional directly following your accident and regularly after is key to recovering full compensation because it is important to provide a clear record of your injuries. By working with our car accident lawyers, you can benefit from step-by-step assistance through the injury claim process, as well as the support of tireless advocates.

FAQ About Car Accidents

Will my insurance go up if the accident wasn't my fault?

Even if a collision was not caused by your actions, your car insurance may still increase. Many insurance companies consider any form of an accident as a good reason to increase insurance payment. However, every case is different, so you should not make any assumptions on the outcome based on general practices.

You may be able to avoid an insurance increase by settling a claim with the other driver's insurance company. When you work with the car accident lawyers at our firm, our team may review your unique circumstances and help you find a positive resolution.

What if the accident was partially my fault?

If you are less than 50% at fault for your accident, then you are still eligible to recover compensation for your damages. Continue watching to learn more about Texas comparative negligence law and how it works.

Should I file a car accident claim?

If you have suffered injury or property damage, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses. Like the compensation awarded to you with driver insurance, a personal injury claim is meant to help you return to the state you were in before the accident occurred.

Depending on the circumstances of an accident, insurance may not cover the full costs of the incident-especially when serious injuries are involved, individuals may face years of medical treatment and an inability to work long after an accident. If insurance does not compensate for the full amount of your losses, you may take action to protect your entitlements by filing a personal injury claim.

How much compensation am I entitled to?

There is no way to know exactly how much compensation you will recover, whether from driver insurance or a car accident claim. Every case is different, and the outcomes are based in part on the negotiations between your attorney and the insurance company. Generally, the amount of compensation awarded is based on the severity of the damages. In car accidents and other matters of personal injury, compensation is often categorized as either economic damages or noneconomic damages.

Economic damages may include:
  • Medical treatment
  • Property damage from the accident
  • Lost wages because of inability to work
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
Noneconomic damages may include:
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of ability to enjoy life
Punitive damages may include:

In some car accident cases – but not all – victims and their families may also be awarded exemplary damages. Punitive damages are reserved for cases involving serious acts of negligence or misconduct, such as in drunk driving accidents.
