According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) statistics, wrong-way accidents are the cause of up to 400 car accident fatalities each year. If you or someone you love was injured in a wrong-way accident or if a loved one was a fatality in a wrong-way accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the at-fault driver.
A personal injury lawyer may be able to help you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit that proves the at-fault driver’s negligence was the cause of the accident. Your lawyer can also assign a monetary value to your claim, assign financial liability to the at-fault driver, and negotiate a favorable financial settlement on your behalf.

Your Injuries and Related Expenses Have a Monetary Value
If you or a member of your family was injured in an accident in Odessa, you may be entitled to seek full financial recovery from the at-fault driver. Your lawyer may be able to help you determine the cost of the economic and non-economic financial damages Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 41.001 entitles you to. Your recoverable economic damages may include:
- Current medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Current lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Property damage
In addition to these fixed costs, you may also be entitled to financial recovery for the unfixed costs of the accident. On your own, these non-economic damages can be more difficult to assign a monetary value to and include things such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Physical disfigurement
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
Your lawyer can help you carefully calculate each of these expenses and losses and ensure nothing is left out. You are entitled to full financial recovery, and our goal is to ensure you are not left with any out-of-pocket expenses for an accident that was not your fault.

Obtain a Copy of Your Crash Report
Building a comprehensive case file starts with your medical records and bills and with your official crash report. You should always file a crash report after a car accident in Odessa. If you or someone else was injured in this accident, you are required to file a crash report according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) guidelines.
Your crash report may contain information that supports your compensation claim and builds your case file. In addition to contact information for the at-fault driver, their insurance company, and anyone who witnessed the accident, the crash report may also contain:
- Notes and diagrams from the investigating officer
- Date, time, and location information
- VIN and license numbers for the at-fault vehicle
- Diagrams that indicate points of impact
- Road and weather conditions at the time of the accident
- Descriptions of physical and property damage
Your Odessa wrong way accident lawyer may be able to use the information in your crash report to ensure you can prove the cause and cost of the collision and assign financial liability to the at-fault driver.

We Make Sure Your Claim Is Filed on Time
Preparing and filing a personal injury lawsuit is time-consuming. Your lawyer can help you calculate the tangible and intangible portions of your compensation claim and do their best to ensure you receive the full range of expenses you are entitled to. Your lawyer may also make sure you file your claim on time.
In Odessa, your right to file a lawsuit is generally limited to two years, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. If you do not file your lawsuit on time, you could inadvertently give up your ability to collect compensation because the court will probably refuse to hear a lawsuit filed after the required deadline.
Do not let time run out on your right to financial recovery. Our personal injury team can make sure you do not put your right to compensation in jeopardy. The sooner you contact a member of our personal injury team, the sooner we can start building your claim and the more time we have to ensure your lawsuit is filed on time.
