An accident can leave you with serious injuries and expenses, but you don’t have to bear the costs of your injuries on your own.
We understand that seeking fair compensation can be complicated. We will use our experience with personal injury law to help you seek the best possible outcome for your case. You can have an advocate with you through every step of a claim or lawsuit.
Determining the Amount You Could Win in a Judgment
You may be wondering just how much you could receive in a settlement with the insurance company for the other driver, but there are no guarantees. Some cases are worth several thousand dollars, while others could be worth more than $1 million. The facts in the case and the extent of your injuries determine the potential settlement amount.
If this happened to you, and another driver’s mistake at a traffic signal resulted in a crash that left you injured, you may have the right to seek compensation for items including:
- Medical bills
- Prescription costs
- Costs to stay at a rehabilitation facility
- Physical therapy costs
- Costs of equipment needed for rehabilitation
- Costs to hire home health personnel
- Costs to hire people for tasks around the house
- Lost wages
- Awards for pain and suffering
- Awards for reduced quality of life
- Awards for emotional trauma
We Can Evaluate Your Damages to Help You Determine Your Future Outlook
Before you are eligible to seek a personal injury settlement, you must see a doctor to diagnose your injuries fully. We can gather evidence of your medical records to show the extent of your injuries.
We will also interview your doctors to come up with a determination of what kind of future health outlook you may have. If you cannot work as you did in the past or if you will have ongoing pain and are unable to enjoy your favorite activities, you could win a larger settlement.
Figuring Out a Fair Award Amount
We have represented many personal injury clients, which gives us insight into the type of compensation amount that would be fair.
If the insurer tries to convince you to settle for a lower amount than we believe is fair, we will recommend sending a counteroffer to the insurer or taking the case to court.
When the other driver violated a traffic signal, as defined in Texas Transportation Code §544.004, he or she may receive a traffic ticket. This is a key piece of evidence in helping us win a settlement or award for you, as we have to prove negligence on the part of the other driver.
Negotiating a Fair Settlement
Once we study the facts in the case, we will work with you to determine the fairest possible amount to request from the insurance company. As negotiations proceed, we will keep you updated constantly.
Determining When to Settle
After a car accident where the other driver violates a traffic signal, you may hear from the insurance company representing the other driver within a few days. The insurance adjuster may tell you that its driver was at fault and that it is ready to offer you a settlement.
Although it may be tempting to try to settle your case fast, this may not be in your best interest. We will help you look closely at your health outlook to determine the best time to settle.
Once you agree to a settlement, you cannot request more money later if your doctor finds new injuries, so the decision of when to settle is an extremely important one. We will give advice about what you should do, but the final decision belongs to you.
Representing You in a Court Case
Sometimes, the insurance company simply refuses to listen to your concerns about your future health outlook. The insurer may accuse you of lying about your injuries and pain.
If the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith, ignoring the facts about your health outlook, we will recommend taking the case to court. An Irving failure to obey traffic signals accident lawyer will stand by your side throughout the trial. We appreciate the opportunity to present your concerns in a trial, where we will fight hard for you.
We do not Require Payment Upfront to Secure Our Services
We understand how stressful it can be to need extensive medical care after a car accident. You could be seeing your medical bills increase while you are unable to work and supplement your family’s income.
When someone else caused the crash in which you suffered an injury, you have the right to seek damages from the negligent driver and his or her insurance company.
We work on a contingency-fee-basis. This means you do not pay any money to hire us. Instead, our fee for representing you will come from a percentage of the final settlement amount at the end of the case.
Call in the Strong Arm Before Your Time Runs Out
Keep in mind that we only have two years to file a lawsuit on your behalf, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003. We recommend getting started as soon as possible to keep your legal options open.
