If you or someone you love was involved in an accident caused by street racing, then you may be entitled to recover damages for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
A street racing accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins can fight for the compensation you deserve after being injured by a negligent driver in Irving. We will seek the best possible outcome for you and your loved ones. Our auto accident lawyers know how to navigate personal injury laws to recover compensation from an insurance carrier or through a civil suit.
We Will Negotiate on Your Behalf
In order to prove that you are owed money for your injuries, a lawyer with our firm can investigate the accident to uncover evidence of negligence. Then, they will negotiate with the insurance companies to get you the amount you are owed. If the insurers do not pay, then we will fight for your rights in court.
We will use our experience as negotiators to work for the best outcome on your behalf. We handle traffic accident cases with bodily injuries and fatal car accidents. Let us handle your case and seek fair compensation based on the documentation of your damages. We know how to prove street racing caused your crash and identify the liable parties.
We Can Investigate the Accident
To establish that the driver who caused your accident was engaged in street racing, we can investigate your circumstances. Racing can lead to aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and running red lights.
Aggressive driving is negligent driving, and it can prove deadly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Many victims suffer catastrophic injuries in these crashes. Most of our clients require medical treatment and have property damage, in addition to other losses.
Our street racing accident lawyer can uncover evidence of negligence and get to the bottom of who is to blame for your injuries. We can use the police report, traffic camera recordings, and witness testimony to build an account of what happened. Our auto accident attorneys show who violated traffic laws and document how this led to your crash.
We Can Represent You at Trial, if Necessary
If the insurance company does not pay you what you are owed, then we can argue for your rights in court. A judge or jury may render a verdict, or the insurance company may end up settling during the pre-trial process or once the trial has begun. Most cases do settle out of court. However, our trial attorneys are ready to prepare for and go to trial when necessary for our clients.
Either way, we will be by your side, advising you on a course of action and keeping you in the loop about your case.

Damages You Could Recover in a Street Racing Accident Case
Through a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you can recover damages for both your economic and non-economic losses. Every case is different, and the value of your financial compensation will depend entirely on the circumstances and case facts. There is no way to determine an average recovery or predict how much your case might be worth before we understand your full range of recoverable damages.
You can recover economic damages to cover your financial losses. These include the following:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost income
- Lost earning potential
- Property damages
- Out-of-pocket expenses caused by your accident
- Services you require due to your injuries
- Burial costs if you lost a loved one to a street racing accident
You can also recover non-economic damages for your intangible losses, such as your physical pain and mental and emotional suffering. If you can no longer participate in the activities and hobbies you once enjoyed, you may be able to recover compensation for this loss.
If you have lost a loved one to a street racing accident, you may be able to recover damages for their pain and suffering, as well as for your own suffering and loss of companionship.
