Types of Car Accidents
Driving can be deadly in Texas, including in Midland. The statistics regarding automobile accidents in the Lone Star State, including Midland car accidents, are stunning. There were over 12,000 serious car accidents in Texas in 2018 resulting in 15,000 serious injuries, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. 3,639 people were killed in automobile accidents, including in Midland car accidents.
Justice after a Midland Car Accident
If you or a loved one have been injured in a Midland automobile accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to seek financial compensation for your losses. Compensation in a car accident case depends on the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident as well as the nature and extend of your injuries. With that said, the types of losses an experienced, tenacious Midland car accident lawyer fights to obtain compensation for a client like you include:
- Medical bills and expense
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Temporary or permanent disability
You’re not only entitled to money for your existing losses but also for those you reasonably can be expected to face or incur in the future. For example, following a serious Midland car accident, you may need ongoing medical care and treatment into the future. You may suffer pain and suffering indefinitely as well. You may not be able to return to work for an extended period of time. Indeed, you may not be able to return to the job you had before a car accident. These all represent examples of losses for which you are entitled to compensation.
There are also situations in which the conduct of the person causing a car accident is so reckless that you might be entitled to seek what are known as punitive or exemplary damages. This is additional compensation awarded in a car accident lawsuit when the conduct of the person causing an accident is particularly egregious. A Doan Law Firm Midland car accident lawyer can determine what compensation you may be entitled to receive.
Fighting the Insurance Company
You need to bear in mind that a car insurance company exists for one primary reason. An automobile insurance company is in business to make money for its shareholders. An insurance company makes more money by limiting or even denying claims, including in cases like your own. Contact a skilled Midland car accident attorney before you agree to be interviewed by an automobile insurance company following a collision.
