Beaumont Car Accident Lawyer
Local (409) 923-0000
Car accidents can happen at any time. It only takes a moment of distraction
or a mishandling of weather conditions for a drive to work to turn into
anything from a minor inconvenience to a tragedy. In Beaumont, TX, there
were two fatal car accidents in 2013, one of which involving at least
one drunk driver. Accidents in the area are most often due to driver error
and reckless driving. A longer view of the statistics and recent trends
in the area, however, make Beaumont one of the highest-ranking areas in
the country in one unsavory statistic, motor vehicle deaths per capita.
One recent accident on I10 involving a Toyota Corolla and a Ford F-350
killed one in the Beaumont area and caused an accident between two other
trucks. Strictly speaking, this accident was the result of another accident,
as it occurred when the driver of the Corolla slowed in response to another
accident and was struck from behind by the Ford F-350. While no charges
were pressed, a man in the back seat of the vehicle was killed, leaving
behind a female driver and a one-year-old child. Once investigations establish
who is at fault for the crash, litigation is almost certain to follow
because of the loss of life involved.
The litigation that will follow from the above car accident will include
a number of different factors. First, fault must be established. Once
established, though, the liability insurance company of the person at
fault will get involved. Dealing with the insurance company can be a frustrating
exercise for the average person because it can quickly add significant
amounts of work, right when you are at your most stressed and, in the
case of the driver of the Corolla in the above example, grieving. A car
accident attorney can help establish the full extent of the damages incurred
and prove these damages in a court of law.
Liability insurance is designed to protect the driver from all damages
pursued after an accident at which they are at fault, so the insurance
company will fight to protect their assets. You need someone on your side
who is just as invested and knowledgeable as the attorneys the insurance
companies employ. An experienced attorney from The Doan Law Firm will
work with you to understand the merits of your case as fully as possible,
and to help build your case to ensure that you receive the full amount
of the damages to which you are entitled. The original settlement offered
by the insurance company rarely covers the full extent of damages to which
you are entitled, so it is important to seek representation as soon after
the accident as is possible to ensure that no evidence is missed and that
the full extent of the damages is uncovered as soon after the accident
Make no mistake, the driver at fault is liable for not only the repairs
of the vehicle, but any injuries sustained by those inside. When death
occurs as a result of the accident, the driver at fault is liable for
these damages, as well. Representation ensures that you receive the full
amount to which you are entitled for the damages sustained in the accident.
By pursuing these damages, you ensure that the accident does not cause
further burden to yourself or your finances and provides the aid you need
to get your life back on track when an accident occurs.
