Suffering a devastating personal injury can turn your life upside down. Mounting medical bills, lost wages and the uncertainty of rehabilitation can be overwhelming. Having all of this stress and anxiety caused by another party’s negligence is fundamentally unfair.
That’s why it’s important that you work with an experienced Houston personal injury attorney who will work hard to get you justice. At Law Offices of Steven A. Hershkowitz, we put our experience and tenacity to work to get you full, fair compensation you deserve.
Fair Compensation for Auto Accidents
In Texas, drivers are required to carry liability car insurance in the event of an accident. As a “fault” state, the insurance company of the driver who caused the accident bears the financial responsibility. The difficult part of getting rightfully compensated for your loss may be proving the other party’s negligence.
The first thing you should do after a car crash is to seek medical treatment. Once your health has been secured, contact a Houston auto accident attorney and gathering information about the collision.
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Photographs of your injuries
- Other driver’s contact info
- Other driver’s insurance information
- A police report
- Contact info of eye witnesses
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Documentation of lost wages
This information will provide our legal team with a clear picture of the accident. It will also help negotiate a suitable insurance settlement from a position of strength. When an insurance company faces a well-prepared attorney, they often negotiate and out-of-court settlement. But if the insurance giant won’t act responsibly, we will see them in court.
Catastrophic Auto Accidents
Most car crashes result in broken bones, soft tissue damage and injuries that may be rehabilitated over a relatively short period of time. Unfortunately, head-on collisions and high rates of speed can result in catastrophic injuries that require long-term and even permanent health care treatment.
The medical community has just begun to understand the implications of traumatic brain injuries. The reports about football players suffering well after retirement has spurred research with frightening results. That data and the high cost of medical treatment has motivated insurance adjusters to offer quick settlements that prevent victims from getting compensation if a problem arises later. That’s why it’s in your best interest to get a case evaluation from an experienced Houston auto accident attorney. After a devastating collision, don’t talk to the insurance company. Talk to a lawyer.
