Injured in an Automobile Accident in Eagle Pass, Laredo, or a Surrounding Area?
Motor vehicle collisions that lead to injury or death are a matter of personal injury law. The relevant laws are extremely complicated, and their application depends on the facts of your case. Depending on the complexity of your situation and whether the other party accepts fault, your case may even require court involvement and trial. That is why it is important to contact an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney if you were injured in a collision with another vehicle.
Insurance companies alone rarely go through all the work necessary to recover the full damages that you are entitled to, and sometimes they may even deny your claim entirely. However, a skilled motor vehicle attorney familiar with personal injury law can help you build a strong case and communicate with your insurance company, as well as the other driver’s insurance, so you have the opportunity to pursue all the damages you deserve.
Do I still have a case if I received a traffic citation stating I cause of the accident?The situation depends if the accident was not completely your fault. You can still recover damages from the other driver for the portion of the accident that was his or her fault.
What should I do if I am involved in an accident?It’s always important to report your accident to the police, no matter how minor it may have been. Make sure to write down the contact information and names of witnesses to the crash, and make sure you get a copy of the driver exchange information form from the police officer at the scene. It’s also important to contact your insurance company to inform them of the collision.
Do I have to let my insurer know about the accident if the accident was not my fault?Yes, you need to inform your insurance company of the accident even if you weren't at fault.
What if I don’t report the accident to my insurance company?If you do not report the accident, the insurance company may deny payment of any claims you file subsequently. Your insurance company must notify you within 30 days of receiving proper notice of the claim whether it will pay or deny your claim, or inform you that it is still in the investigation stage.
Being injured in a motor vehicle accident can drastically change the way that you and your family live. At Gonzalez and Associates P.C., we know that living with an injury can be extremely painful, emotional, and costly for your household. Compensation cannot undo what has already been done, but it can help you financially recover and pay for any future medical expenses.
Depending on the severity of your injury, you may require immediate or ongoing medical attention and long-term physical therapy. You may also need to request time off work or find a new job entirely, resulting in lost wages or decreased earning potential. This is all in addition to the costs accrued from repairing or replacing your car.
Furthermore, besides being physically painful, severe bodily injuries can also involve a significant degree of mental and emotional pain. You may experience anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and other forms of emotional distress either because of the accident itself or because of the injury that was sustained in the collision. If this is the case, you may be entitled to compensation related to your pain and emotional suffering.
Damages that can be recovered include:
- Accrued and future medical expenses
- Car repair/replacement expenses (property damages)
- Lost wages and potential earnings
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress damages
