Types of Financial Recovery for Vehicle Accident Victims
Collisions can result in various types of recoverable losses. A variety of factors will contribute to the overall value of your case, including the extent of your injuries, the parties involved, and the scope of your pain and suffering.
You may be looking to recover the following types of damages:
- Vehicle replacement costs
- Hospital invoices
- Future expected medical expenses
- Therapy bills
- Prescription costs

- Lost income, wages, tips, benefits, and bonuses
- Pain and suffering
A Lubbock passenger vehicle accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins can evaluate the extent of your damages and determine your options for seeking compensation. First, we will try to reach a resolution with the liable insurer. If this does not prove to be fruitful, we can file a lawsuit.
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 limits the amount of time you have to pursue a civil action. You generally have two years from the date of the crash to move forward with a lawsuit. The courts will not hear your case if you try to file a lawsuit outside of the state’s deadline.

Risk Factors That Cause Lubbock Vehicle Accidents
Your Lubbock passenger vehicle accident lawyer must determine how your accident occurred before they can pursue damages from the at-fault party. Whether you know it or not, there is information in your case that can be used to arrive at this determination. For example, if you were injured at an intersection, your lawyer can subpoena the traffic surveillance footage to review the details of the crash.
Some risk factors that could have caused or contributed to your accident include:
- Drowsy driving
- Intoxicated or drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Road rage
- Street racing
- Improperly made left turns
- Driver error
- A vehicular component defect
- Road obstruction
- Inclement weather
- Decreased visibility
This list of contributory factors can cause an accident or increase the severity of one already occurring. These factors can create a risky situation, make it worse, or elevate a small accident into one that results in death.
How A Lubbock Passenger Vehicle Accident Lawyer Can Help
When you partner with a lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins, you do not need to spend time worrying about the cost of representation. We render services on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that if an attorney takes on your case and does not win, you do not have to pay their attorney’s fees.
A lawyer from our team can also:
Organize Your Accident-Related Evidence
Our law office can help you keep track of the evidence as it relates to the crash. As you continue your course of medical treatment, you may come into possession of billing statements, lab test results, and prescription medications. We can use these pieces of information to establish the cause of your injuries and the value of your case.
Deal with the Insurance Companies
Some insurance companies try to fight tooth and nail to avoid paying for claimants’ damages. These for-profit agencies seek to protect their bottom line rather than serve injured people. Loncar Lyon Jenkins does not give insurance companies the chance to dispute the cost of your collision-related expenses. We come prepared to negotiations with evidence to back up your claim.
Work with Law Enforcement
We work to ensure that a police report (or crash report) is filed in regard to your accident. It is vital to create a paper trail that details when and where the accident occurred. This document is a crucial piece of evidence that can benefit your case. If the police report contains errors that could be addressed, it is important to amend these mistakes early on. Your team can secure a copy of the police report and use its information to promote your case’s outcome.
Investigate the Details of the Collision
Your lawyer can investigate the details of the crash to determine how the accident happened. They can interview witnesses to the collision to learn more about what occurred and consult with medical professionals regarding the extent of your injuries.
Some other methods your lawyer can use to investigate your case include:
- Visiting the scene of the crash
- Talking to auto mechanics regarding your vehicle’s damage
- Reviewing traffic surveillance or dashcam footage
- Speaking to your doctor about your health condition and prognosis
- Reviewing the at-fault motorist’s driving record
To recover damages, your legal team will need to show how another party’s conduct resulted in the crash that hurt you.
