What Is Considered Negligent Behavior?
To pursue a viable personal injury claim, negligence must have been at the root of the accident. Negligent behavior is considered to be a preventable action or inaction that any reasonable person should know is dangerous.
Common Causes Of Car Accidents That Occurred Due To Negligence Include:
Any of the above and more could be considered grounds for a car accident injury case. If you believe that the accident that harmed you was caused by careless behavior that could have been prevented, then waste no time in contacting us with the details. Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitation on all personal injury cases in Texas, so you have a limited amount of time in which to file your claim. It is best to get started early if you want to maximize your chances of success.
What Will Compensation Cover?
Immediately after an accident, it is important to take clear photos of not only the damages to your car, but the entire scene, as well as photos that try to convey how the accident happened. Once you get in touch with an injury attorney, their first step is to determine who was liable for causing the accident. Our attorney can then take action to hold those individuals accountable for the accident. Accidents can happen in many different ways — another driver cuts you off or makes an unsafe lane change — leading to a collision. We use that information, demonstrating that the other driver was negligent and why they must be held responsible.
The compensation we obtain can be used to cover the following:
- Medical bills and treatment
- Lost income due to being unable to work
- Rehabilitation therapy and/or counseling
- Pain and suffering
- Other losses related to the accident
The way fault is determined is by showing that the driver violated a statute or some traffic safety law and that this action was what led to the accident and injuries. The simplest way is to ask if the driver reasonably could have prevented the accident from happening. For example, the driver wasn’t paying attention and rear-ended the vehicle in front of him or her. If the driver’s full attention was on the road, then the accident might not have ever occurred.
