What You Must Prove in Auto Accidents

When making a claim for damages, your responsibility to prove that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. That involves establishing a few important things:

  • The other driver acted recklessly, negligently, or intentionally
  • The other driver’s caused the accident
  • You suffered harm that may be compensated
  • Your harm was caused by the auto accident
  • Car accidents can be difficult, and it might be the case that the accident was caused by some combination of the other driver’s actions and your own. Even if you were partly negligent, Texas law allows you to make a claim as long as negligence from your end didn’t contribute more than 50 percent of the fault for the car crash.

    How a Houston Car Accident Attorney Can Help

    Typically, you’ll begin the process of seeking compensation by submitting a claim to the other driver’s insurance company. If you hire a Houston car accident attorney, your lawyer will help you investigate the crash and assembling the evidence, accident reports, testimony, photographs, medical bills, and other documents that support your claim. Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company to try to get you a settlement. If the insurance company settles, then you receive a check and you’re done. If you don’t have a attorney, chances are the insurance company will offer much less than what your claim is actually worth. That’s why it’s always a good idea to talk to an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer before you agree to any settlement.
