Midland and Odessa, TX Car Accident Lawyer

From the fender bender to the head-on collision, car accidents only have one thing in common: they are incredibly stressful occurrences. Even the mildest of car accidents can cause a substantial delay in one’s travel, and if it occurs when the driver was on their way to work, it could make for a long day or, in the case of shift workers, lost wages. On top of this, even a small dent in the body of the car could cost a significant amount of money to have repaired at a local body shop. When the car accident is the fault of the other driver, you are entitled to be paid for these damages.

The typical fender bender involves little more than the exchange of insurance information between the two parties and a police officer to fill out the accident report. If the officer finds fault with one of the parties, it often results in a ticket for that party. The liability insurance carried by that individual then covers the cost of repairing the vehicle of the one at fault. However, if the driver was illegally uninsured, it is now up to them to cover your damages. This can become extremely expensive, particularly in more severe accidents where there are medical costs to consider.

Liability insurance is designed to cover both the cost of the car damages and the cost of bodily injury to the driver in an accident caused by the policyholder. It does not cover the medical bills of the driver who caused the accident. However, if the responsible party does not have liability insurance and causes a severe accident, the other drivers are entitled to collect damages from the person directly.

In Midland, driver error causes most accidents, and accidents most commonly occur on Interstate 20. One recent, fatal accident in the area was caused when a westbound truck crossed the median onto an on-ramp and crashed into a barrier. While there is no explanation yet regarding what caused this driving behavior, the others involved in this accident would be entitled to collect damages from insurance or from the driver himself.

There are many reasons that such accidents could occur, but some of the most common in Midland and Odessa include:

• Drug use
• Aggressive driving
• Improper lane changes
• Poor visibility
• Dangerous roads
• Unsecured cargo (most common with freightliners)

If either you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident, The Doan Law Firm is ready to help. We provide compassion, experience, and resources that you need in order to pursue the compensation for damages to which you are entitled. We offer free initial consultation so that you can have all of your most pressing questions answered and an understanding of your case in a low-pressure environment. We understand that a car accident is a stressful time, and want to ensure that your time in our offices helps reduce that stress rather than add to it. This is also why we offer to take cases on a contingency basis. We will fight for your case in order to ensure your just compensation is provided, and if we do not win the case, you owe us nothing. Instead, on a successful outcome, we take a small percentage of the award as payment for legal fees in full.

Closure means more than just a financial reward, and at The Doan Law Firm, we understand this. Our job is to ensure that you receive the full aid that you need to address not only the damage to your car and the damage to your body, but also the emotional damage that can be caused by a highly stressful situation such as a car accident. Part of how we do this is by ensuring that we get all of the facts about your case straight, so that we can provide an airtight, fact-based argument to achieve the best possible compensation and resolution to your claim.

If you are in an accident and the other driver’s insurance company offers you a settlement, it is usually in your best interest to seek legal counsel before accepting it. You are frequently entitled to an amount higher than what the insurance company is offering. Get The Doan Law Firm on your side early on, and we will ensure that you receive the full compensation to which you are entitled.

Since there are statutes of limitations to consider regarding medical issues, it is best to have experienced legal counsel on your side as early in the process as possible. The Doan Law Firm knows how to navigate the complex legal issues at play, and how to ensure that all medical issues caused by the accident are covered by the party at fault or their insurance company. We are available any day of the week, including holidays, so do not hesitate to call us at (800) 913-0075. We will fight to ensure that you receive your full compensation.

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.
