Never Accept an Insurance Company Settlement Without First Speaking to a Lawyer

Whether your car accident was caused by an automotive car part failure, a distracted driver, a drunk driver, or otherwise negligent motorist, you must take immediate legal action with the help of a professional attorney. Though an insurance company may try to offer you a settlement, it will most often be less than the amount to which you are entitled. Let a car accident lawyer from Herring Law Firm help you pursue the full amount of damages after an accident!

Compensation for a car accident may include coverage for:

  • Lost wages and future lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Medical bills and doctors' expenses
  • Emergency treatment-related costs
  • Follow-up treatments for rehabilitation purposes
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs associated with wrongful death

By foregoing your right to legal representation, you could be missing your opportunity to receive money that can be used to pay off:

  • Extensive medical bills
  • Repair costs
  • Lost compensation
  • Other losses from the accident

Attorney Mason Herring is adept at taking on any insurance company and will not stop championing your interests until an insurance company or liable party provides you with the money and support that you deserve.

Texas is an At-Fault State

While some states adhere to a "no-fault" system in regards to car accidents, Texas is an at-fault state which follows a traditional tort system. In this system, every driver can be held liable for their portion of the fault in a car accident. While most people carry liability insurance to cover these costs in the event of a collision, at-fault drivers can be sued for expenses beyond the state minimums.

In Texas, drivers are required to carry the following minimum insurance:

  • $30,000 for each injured person
  • $60,000 total for injuries per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in Texas?

If you have been involved in a car accident, you have a limited amount of time to take action and file a claim against the at-fault driver in pursuit of compensation. Most insurance policies require you to bring a claim within a few days or even weeks of the collision. If you cannot reach an agreement with the insurance company, you have two years to file a personal injury or property damage lawsuit against the at-fault driver. This is known as a "statute of limitations."

This filing deadline is strictly enforced in Texas and can make or break your claim. For this reason, it is crucial to act promptly and speak with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
