It’s unfortunate but true that car accidents are becoming quite common, especially in the state of Texas including Houston. This is clearly evident from the shocking numbers reported by the Texas Department of Transportation. Reports show that in 2016:
- Nearly 3,773 people lost their precious lives in car accidents,
- From 2015 to 2016, traffic fatalities increased by a 5.45 percent, and
- The same year 7,326 people were injured in car collisions in Houston.
As car accidents can cause serious injuries, they may require one or multiple costly medical treatments, which can cripple you financially especially if you don’t have health insurance.
By law, a car accident victim has the right to get compensated. However, the amount of compensation may vary, depending on your injuries, case and how well your case is fought. If the defendant is strong and your case lacks a strong legal representation, you may have to settle for less or nothing all. Therefore, to protect your rights and get fairly compensated, it’s important that you work with the right car accident attorney.
To find the right car accident lawyer for legal representation, here are the factors that you must consider…
Always work with an attorney who has a rich legal experience in fighting car accident cases in Texas. Hiring such a lawyer means that they can leverage on their past experience and knowledge to identify the laws that were broken by the party at fault, which serves as an invaluable resource in proving the negligent party as guilty and creating a strong compelling compensation case.
An experienced lawyer has a thorough understanding and comprehensive knowledge about the complex legal framework of the traffic laws in the State of Texas. Furthermore, they are also familiar with the legal system, which further increases your chances of getting a fair and full compensation.
Look for an attorney who has a strong and stellar market reputation built on the way they fight for their clients. Seek a lawyer who is willing to work compassionately with you and provide you with aggressive case representation. Such lawyers leave no stone unturned to make sure that their clients get the compensation that they are entitled for—even if they have to take the case for trial.
Ready to Conduct Effective Investigations
Hire a lawyer who is well-equipped in conducting effective investigations and who will work on your case as top priority. This is crucial because valuable evidence can get tampered, erased or lost if investigation is not conducted right away. Some attorneys may delay the process or not be well-equipped to carry a proper and in-depth investigation of the accident, which can lower your chances of getting maximum recovery amount in compensation.
So, choose a lawyer who is well-equipped with resources and has a team of certified experts like rules compliance and safety experts, crash reconstruction specialists, engineers, and toxicology specialists who can investigate your case in detail and collect valuable evidence to build a strong case.
