Liability for Unsafe Lane Change Accidents
Drivers who make unsafe lane changes are responsible for all kinds of accidents, many of which have severe and even fatal consequences. Whether a driver causes an accident (negligently or intentionally) by driving aggressively, they are liable to victims who suffer damage and injuries as a result of their behavior.
To establish a driver’s liability, a plaintiff will need to show that:
- The driver who caused the accident had a “duty” to protect the safety of other drivers by following traffic laws.
- The driver who caused the accident “breached” that duty. Breaching a duty means that one failed to act reasonably, which in this case would mean that the driver did not behave as required by law. A liable driver could have instead driven recklessly and neglected their duty to respect the traffic laws and safety of others.
- As a result of that “breach” or failure to observe traffic laws, they caused (or are at least 50% responsible for having caused) an accident.
- The accident caused harm and damages to the victim. Even if the victim bears some responsibility for the accident, as long as they are less than half responsible, they are still eligible to collect compensation for their injury, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §33.001.

When to File Your Case
It is important to remember that your right to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is a time-limited right. In Texas, there is a two-year “statute of limitations” on personal injury and wrongful death cases, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003.
The two-year limitation begins on the date of the death or injury and cannot be extended once it expires. Call the law firm of an unsafe lane change accident lawyer in Wichita Falls today to get your case started. Even if you are not yet sure of the extent of your recovery and future prognosis, we can take a look at your situation.

You Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit for a Loved One
If you were not the person injured in a lane change accident but instead lost a loved one, Loncar Lyon Jenkins may be able to help you hold the driver who caused the accident liable. Texas allows surviving family members to file “wrongful death lawsuits” on behalf of loved ones who have been lost as a result of negligence.
The compensation a loved one can collect for their family member’s death may include economic and non-economic damages. In addition, punitive damages may be added to a damages award in circumstances that are particularly negligent. The economic damages in a wrongful death lawsuit should be factored to include funeral and burial expenses, as well as lost wages in cases in which a family has lost a financial provider.
