Texas Car Accident Lawsuits - 2024

While many car accident cases can be resolved through settlement negotiations, sometimes going to trial is necessary to secure the full and fair compensation our clients deserve. At Griffin Purnell, our team of experienced trial attorneys has a proven track record of success in the courtroom. We are always prepared to aggressively advocate for our clients’ rights and present compelling arguments to judges and juries.

The Importance of Seeking Prompt Care and Legal Counsel Following a Car Wreck

Don't Delay Medical Treatment After a Car Wreck

One of the most crucial steps to take after a car accident is to seek medical attention right away, even if you don’t feel like you’ve been seriously hurt in the fog of the crash.

Many injuries, such as whiplash, concussions, or internal bleeding, may not present symptoms immediately but can worsen over time and lead to long-term health problems if left untreated. By getting a thorough medical evaluation promptly after the crash, you can identify and document any injuries, which is vital for both your well-being and your legal case.

What if you didn't realize you were Injured until the day following the crash?

Regardless of the care your received or didn’t receive following the crash, it’s critical to consult with an experienced Texas car wreck attorney as soon as possible after the accident. A skilled lawyer can guide you through the complex legal process, help gather and preserve crucial evidence, and protect your rights against insurance companies that may try to minimize or deny your claim.

At Griffin Purnell, we offer free initial consultations to help car accident victims understand their options and make informed decisions about their cases.

Frequently Asked Questions About Texas Car Wreck Claims

What Are the Essential Steps to Take After a Car Accident in Texas?

  1. Check for injuries and call 911 for medical assistance if needed.
  2. Contact the police to report the accident and obtain a crash report.
  3. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver(s) involved.
  4. Document the accident scene with photos of the vehicles, road conditions, and any visible injuries.
  5. Contact a reputable Texas car wreck attorney for a free consultation to discuss your legal options.

What Is the Deadline for Filing a Car Accident Claim in Texas?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim, including those related to car accidents, is generally two years from the date of the incident. However, there are some exceptions, such as claims against government entities, which may have shorter deadlines. It’s essential to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your claim is filed within the appropriate timeframe.

Can I Still Receive Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident?

Yes, Texas follows a comparative fault rule, which means that you can still recover compensation even if you were partially responsible for the accident. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you were found to be 20% at fault and your damages were $100,000, you would be able to recover $80,000. It’s important to have a skilled attorney who can help minimize your fault percentage and maximize your recovery.

What Types of Damages Can I Seek in a Texas Car Accident Claim?

Car accident victims in Texas may be entitled to various types of damages, including:

  • Economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage
  • Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life
  • In rare cases involving gross negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the at-fault party and deter future misconduct.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Car Wreck Attorney in Texas?

At Griffin Purnell, we offer free initial consultations to help car accident victims understand their rights and options without any upfront costs. We typically work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only pay attorney fees if we successfully recover compensation for you. Our fees are a percentage of the settlement or verdict we secure on your behalf, so you never have to worry about paying out of pocket for our legal services.

Can an Attorney Represent Me in a Hit-and-Run Accident?

Yes, Griffin Purnell has experience representing victims of hit-and-run accidents. We utilize state-of-the-art software to help identify responsible parties based on the limited information available. Additionally, we pursue UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) claims when the responsible party is uninsured or underinsured. These strategies allow us to frequently obtain recoveries on behalf of our clients in hit-and-run cases.

What If the Responsible Party Did Not Provide Their Insurance Information After the Crash?

If the at-fault driver fails to provide their insurance information after the accident, we can use the available information, such as their license plate number, to locate their insurance provider. Our experienced team has the resources and knowledge to investigate and uncover the necessary details to proceed with your claim.

Can I Recover Compensation If There Is No Police Report?

Yes, it is possible to recover compensation even in the absence of a police report. This scenario occurs frequently, and we have the expertise to navigate these cases successfully. Our attorneys will gather evidence, interview witnesses, and build a strong case on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Can I Still Proceed If the Insurance Company Initially Denied My Claim?

Insurance companies are in the business of minimizing payouts and may initially deny claims. However, at Griffin Purnell, we have a proven track record of obtaining substantial settlements for clients who were initially denied payment by insurance companies. If you believe the facts of your case justify a recovery, despite an initial denial or low settlement offer, we may be able to advocate on your behalf and fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
