Changing lanes without using your signals to alert other drivers of your intent, crowding other drivers in their lane, or failing to yield the right-of-way for other drivers can lead to serious car accidents. Were you injured because another driver’s improper lane change caused a collision?
Insurance Information Institute (III) statistics cite failure to stay in the proper lane as one of the leading causes of accidents attributed to driver behavior. If you or someone you love was injured in an accident caused by another driver’s error, you may be able to hold that driver financially responsible for the cost of treating your injuries. The at-fault driver may also be liable for other expenses related to the accident.

Lane Changes Require Careful Maneuvering
Changing lanes is a tricky driving maneuver because it can affect your car and all the other cars on the road. When another driver is attempting to change lanes, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) outlines the safest way to conduct a lane change and pass another car in its Texas Driver Handbook:
- Each driver must signal their intentions before changing lanes or merging into traffic
- Each driver must be sure they have an unobstructed view of all traffic
- Each driver must avoid crowding into another lane or forcing another driver out of their lane
If the driver who caused your accident did not perform these maneuvers and you were injured when they collided with your car, you may have the basis for a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit. Holding the at-fault driver responsible means you may be able to recoup the financial expenses and losses the accident created. Our personal injury team may help ensure you present a solid case for financial recovery.

Do Not Hesitate to File Your Compensation Claim
As soon as possible, call our legal team to start building your compensation claim. Do not wait to file your claim because time plays a significant role in your pursuit of financial compensation. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Because your claim has a state-mandated time limit, filing your claim within the allotted time is critical. Failing to file your claim within that time period means you may give up your right to collect compensation at all. That, in turn, means you and your family could be forced to cover the financial impact of an accident someone else caused.
Our team can make sure your compensation claim is filed on time and that you do not run out of time to file your lawsuit. Avoid putting your financial recovery in jeopardy by calling our client intake team today to get your financial compensation claim started immediately.
Make Sure No Expenses Are Overlooked in Your Compensation Claim
When you are involved in a car accident, the financial impact of the accident should be covered by the at-fault driver or their insurance company. You can avoid having these expenses fall onto your shoulders by filing a personal injury lawsuit to potentially recoup these costs:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Medical devices and prescriptions
- Current and future lost income
- Mental and emotional distress
- Physical pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement
If someone you love lost their life in the accident, you may also be able to recover the cost of their funeral and burial expenses. When you are ready to file your claim for compensation, an El Paso accident caused by improper lane changes lawyer can work with you to potentially ensure you receive the financial compensation you deserve. Contact the case review team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins by calling 877-239-4878 immediately.

We May Be Able to Help You Negotiate a Financial Settlement
Negotiating a financial settlement is a complex event. Our team may be able to make sure your claim is accurately valued before any settlement talks begin. Once your claim is evaluated and assessed, your lawyer will discuss any settlement offers you receive. Of course, the decision to accept or reject a settlement offer is always yours to make, but we can advise you to ensure you do not accept a flawed settlement offer.
You do not have to risk receiving a financial settlement that is not fair to you. Review the full cost of your accident with the lawyer representing your claim and ensure they have copies of your medical bills, salary history, and other records and reports that contain details about your accident-related expenses.
Our goal for each of our clients is to ensure you do not accept a settlement offer that is too small or one that does not fully cover your accident-related expenses. This is important because once you accept a settlement, you cannot ask for additional money even if you uncover additional accident-related expenses and losses.
