If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident in Dallas as a result of someone else's driving, it is important to know your legal options. Far too many rely on insurance companies to arrange for compensation and are unaware of other remedies against negligent drivers. Insurance policies are typically bound by policy limits and insurers will not pursue all possible types of damages that can be recovered from other drivers. With the assistance of an experienced attorney, you can pursue all of the damages to which you or your loved one are entitled.

What Types of Accidents Can Give Reason for a Lawsuit?

There are countless types of car accidents which may result in a reason to pursue damages. These include fender benders, rear end collisions, accidents resulting from failure to obey traffic laws, head-on collisions, side swipe accidents, parking lot collisions, accidents resulting from faulty equipment, weather related accidents, pedestrian accidents, collisions with fixtures, and drunk driver accidents.

All car accidents are different, but if you sustain injuries from the accident or property damage you should contact an experienced attorney to protect your rights. An attorney can help hold the other driver responsible.

What Types of Damages Can Result in Compensation?

Car accidents typically involve damage to your property as well as personal injury. If the other driver was negligent, you can recover many different types of damages. This includes reimbursement for the damages to your vehicle and any other property damaged in the accident, medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, wrongful death if applicable, and legal expenses.

A personal injury attorney has experience in identifying all of the potential damage claims you may have against another driver. There are many claims you may have which you have not even thought about which an attorney can help you explore. An attorney will help make sure that you receive fair compensation for the damages sustained in the accident and everything else to which you may be entitled.

What Should You Do if involved in a car accident?

Drivers involved in a car accident where property damage or personal injuries are sustained should take immediate action. First and most importantly, if you have significant injuries, contact medical assistance immediately. Medical assistance should always be sought if you suffer personal injuries. The reason for this includes the following:

  • Treatment of your injuries
  • Medical personnel can document your injuries
  • Doctors, nurses and paramedics can be important witnesses for a claim against the other driver
  • Medical reports can be used to prove your injuries

If possible, you should also contact law enforcement to report to the scene of the accident. Law enforcement officers will investigate the accident and may cite the other driver for their negligence. Law enforcement involvement is also helpful in a personal injury case, for the follow reasons:

  • Police often have experience reconstructing accidents and can help determine the fault of the other driver
  • Officers often document the accident scene with photographs, video and diagrams
  • Officers will collect witness information which can be used in a personal injury lawsuit
  • Officers may cite or arrest the other driver to help protect other drivers

You should keep organized and detailed records of all information related to the accident. Doing so will help your attorney understand the accident and the damages you have sustained. This includes the following:

  • Keep notes of your recollection of the accident
  • Identify and obtain contact information for anyone with knowledge of the accident and your injuries (eye witnesses, police officers, passengers, doctors, nurses, paramedics, etc)
  • Photograph your injuries
  • Obtain copies of all medical records

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
