A car accident can leave you with serious injuries that require extensive medical care, preventing you from working. If you experienced life-changing injuries or lost a close loved one due to a negligent driver, we are here. Our car accident lawyers serving Lubbock can help you with your case.
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we can investigate the details of your accident and build a strong case to pursue compensation for losses you suffered. Our legal services are provided on a contingency basis. This means we do not receive payment until we secure a fair settlement on your behalf. You don’t have to pay any upfront fees to get started.
You Could Recover Compensation for Your Losses
Depending on the details of your case, you may be able to recover several forms of compensation after a car accident.
We can help you seek a recovery for:
- Medical bills, including the costs of emergency care, hospitalization, ambulance rides, treatment from doctors or specialists, physical therapy, medications, and more
- Lost wages, if you had to miss work due to recovery from your injuries
- Reduced earning capacity, if your ongoing ability to earn will be affected because of lasting impact from your injuries
- Pain and suffering, if you experience severe pain and other challenges
- Scarring and disfigurement, if your appearance changed as a result of your injuries

If you face severe injuries, you may face ongoing costs and losses associated with your accident. In addition to determining an amount that represents your past and present losses, we will also estimate any future losses you may face. We don’t want you to have to pay out of pocket for injuries someone else caused.

Seeking Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a close loved one in a car accident due to a negligent driver, you may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Taking legal action can be especially challenging when you are grieving a loss. So, we can do all the work necessary to seek financial compensation on your behalf.
Your relationship to the victim is important in determining whether you may pursue civil action. Only the spouse, children, and parents of the decedent may seek damages (per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.004).
We can make a strong case for your compensation. You may be able to recover:
- Medical costs required by your loved one
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship
- And more

We Can Handle Common Challenges with Insurance Companies
It is not uncommon to hear from an insurance company soon after the accident. Insurance companies often contact accident victims while they are vulnerable and have not yet hired legal representation. The initial settlement offer they make is most likely a low dollar amount designed to close your claim for the least amount possible. This protects their best interests and not yours.
Accepting a settlement offer without legal representation can compromise your future medical care. Once you accept the offer, you are generally barred from pursuing civil action in the future should your medical condition worsen.
Your injuries require your full attention. Do not let aggressive insurance company representatives pressure you during this stressful time. An injury lawyer from our team can:
- Handle any unfair denials of your claim
- Ensure that you are not unfairly blamed for more of the accident than you are responsible for
- Take your case to trial, if the insurer won’t agree to a fair settlement

Forms of Negligence That Can Lead to Car Accidents
We will gather all evidence of what might have led to the crash. Common forms of negligence that can cause car accidents include:
- Distracted driving: Distracted driving kills eight people each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Aggressive driving: Speeding, running red lights, and tailgating are all aggressive driving, as the supports AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI): Drivers who meet or exceed the blood alcohol legal limit of .08 percent, have drugs in their system, or both can be charged with DWI.
- Drowsy driving: Drifting off behind the wheel due to a lack of sleep can cause serious accidents.
These are just a few examples of how a driver in Lubbock may be careless or reckless. If you were injured in an accident, resulting in serious injuries that disrupted your quality of life, you could secure an award. You do not have to endure this alone. A car accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins can determine the best course of legal action for you.
It takes just one driver engaging in reckless behavior to result in injuries that can last a lifetime. If you experienced serious injuries due to the reckless actions of another driver, Loncar Lyon Jenkins is there.
The Clock is Ticking on the Timeline to File Suit
The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.001 states that the statute of limitations for filing your civil case is two years. Serious injuries or the death of a loved one can turn your days into a blur. Before you know it, the window for a lawsuit will close.
The time for filing your case begins the moment you become injured or your loved one dies. Twenty-four months is not very long during a stressful time. Let our team worry about deadlines and paperwork regarding your case. We can ensure that all required documents reach the court within the proper time frame.
