Waco, Temple and Killeen Car Wreck Attorneys and Auto Accident Attorneys
Car Accident Personal Injuries
You likely have both serious bodily injuries and vehicle damage if you have been in a car accident. If you have medical or auto repair bills after a car accident, you might have a car accident personal injury claim and may be eligible for compensation.
You can file a car accident lawsuit against the party who was responsible for the accident. If you win your claim, you might be able to receive payments to cover your injuries and auto repair bills.
You’ll first need to determine if you are eligible for a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident.
To successfully file a personal injury claim after a car crash, you’ll need to prove the other driver was negligent in his or her actions and caused the car accident. This means that you’ll need to show that the other driver did not “reasonable care” when driving, saying the other driver was driving drunk, texting, driving illegally, or in some different negligent fashion. A personal injury attorney can help you prove fault in a car accident claim.
Other Traffic Accidents
A car accident may not just include two four-wheel cars. You may have a car accident with a pedestrian, large truck, bicycle, and more. Additionally, the driver is not the only person eligible for a personal injury claim after a car crash. Passengers in the vehicle could be eligible for a personal injury claim if they were injured as well.
If you were in a car, riding your bicycle, or riding your motorcycle and got into an accident, it is still critically important to determine who was at fault for your injuries. Your local and state laws will make a difference when filing a personal injury claim, so it’s essential to know if you were driving legally as well before filing your claim after a car accident as soon as possible.
