If you’re involved in a Dallas car accident, you have some things to consider.
The most-important thing to consider is whether or not you need a car accident lawyer.
A car accident lawyer will want to discuss the facts of your case and see if there is potential to file a legal action for compensation. These lawyers will investigate and reconstruct the accident to determine if and how the other driver was negligent, and will then proceed with a claim.
Negligence means that the driver either did something (or didn’t do something) that a normal person would have been expected to do in that situation. It doesn’t mean that they suddenly should have been able to drive like a race car driver to avoid getting in a wreck. It just means, for instance, that they should have stopped at a stop sign, slowed down to yield, or obeyed the speed limit.
After they fully evaluate the facts of your case, they’ll help figure out how much you should seek in damages from the other driver. This will mean taking into account the financial damage you sustained, any medical bills you’ve received, and compensation for your pain and suffering. They can help you come up with a figure based on other claims and adjust that amount to fit your particular situation.
Your accident attorney may end up having to go to court with you to argue the case, although most are settled prior to trial through negotiation. Either way, you may end up getting a significant amount of compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. For a free consultation into your case, call us at 1-877-405-4313 today.
