Chapter 545 of the Texas Transportation Code, titled Operation and Movement of Vehicles, provides the most comprehensive statement of what it means to drive lawfully in the Lone Star State.
If you’ve been hurt because some fool wasn’t paying attention, then you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries.
In order to maximize the amount of money you’re entitled to, you need to retain an attorney.
If you rely on the insurance company for the driver that injured you to pay you what you’re legally entitled to, you’re being as foolish as the driver that caused the accident in the first place. You’ll be waiting a long time for very little, if anything.
That driver’s insurance company wants to pay you the lowest amount it can get away with, and get you to sign a release of all your claims against its insured driver. It may just delay handling your claim until the statute of limitations runs out.
In order to recover what your case is truly worth, you need a lawyer who knows the law, knows what a case is worth, can make an accurate determination of your case’s value, and then fight for that value and nothing less.
Moreover, if you’ve just been hurt, you should be focused on your health and your recovery.
You don’t want to be dealing with an aggressive and unsympathetic insurance adjuster who wants to sucker you into accepting a derisory settlement so he or she can close your file.
Even your own insurance company cannot be trusted to give you good advice.
They want to prevent you making a claim on your uninsured or underinsured policy, if you have one, and they’ll also do what they can to minimize the value of your claim.
If you settle with the liable driver’s insurer, your own insurer gets to offset that amount from the coverage available to you.
The sad reality is though we all pay premiums to insurers to shift our risk of loss to them, the insurance companies have used their economic power to buy sufficient political influence to make it impossible for someone without an attorney to properly hold them to account.
In collusion with their lawyers, the insurance companies have manipulated the bodily injury claims compensation process into a minefield, riddled with traps for the unwary.
We’ve been navigating it for two decades and we know how to cross it.
Choose us to represent you – we act aggressively to force the insurance companies to do their job so you can apply your focus and efforts where they are most needed; on repairing yourself, and your family’s health and well-being after a traumatic event.
We help with that too if need be – by referring you to one of the physicians or treatment facilities inside our extensive network of care providers who will work for the promise of payment from the proceeds we collect on your behalf.
