How much you should settle for after a rear-end collision in Texas will depend on your damages. Your financial settlement should cover both your current losses and future losses. Our firm can determine how much you should settle for after your accident.
You generally have one chance to seek money for a rear-end car accident. It is important that you put forth the strongest case possible, and a personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you do that. If you have any additional questions about rear-end accidents or seeking fair compensation, our team is available via phone call.
What Damages Will We Consider When Pursuing a Settlement?
As we prepare to negotiate your settlement, we will consider:
Your Medical Costs
Emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, medications, rehabilitation, doctors’ appointments, and other accident-related medical expenses may entitle you to compensation. Future medical expenses are an important factor in any rear-end collision case. We will work with experts to determine the total cost of your existing and future medical care.
Healthcare costs can be among the most expensive damages for rear-end accident victims. Personal injury claims allow our firm to pursue compensation that covers such costly damages.
Your Vehicle Repairs
The Universal Technical Institute (UTI) explains that a rear-end crash may cause damage to a vehicle’s frame and suspension. These can be costly property damages, and the at-fault driver (or other liable parties) may pay for those repairs.
Your Professional Life
If injuries from your rear-end accident in Texas prevent you from working, you may suffer financially. You may lose:
- Potential promotions
- Retirement benefits
- Earning power
- Your status with your current employer
Being unable to work may also cause non-economic damages, such as the loss of enjoyment and identity you get from your job. If you are unable to work indefinitely, we’ll factor future professional damages into your case.
Your Pain and Suffering
You may receive compensation for non-economic damages that qualify as pain and suffering. Any traumatic memories, nightmares, psychological conditions, emotional distress, physical pain, and other forms of pain and suffering may entitle you to compensation.
A personal injury lawyer from our team will value all your losses and seek maximum compensation for your rear-end collision in Texas.

Will Insurance Cover Losses from Your Rear-End Accident?
Insurance may cover losses from your accident. The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) explains that motorists must prove they can cover the cost of any accident they cause. Texas is an at-fault state, meaning that the motorist at fault for the accident generally covers the losses they cause.
Our team will review your insurance policy and the policy of the at-fault driver who caused your accident. The rear driver is generally at fault in a rear-end collision.
Due to Texas’s at-fault insurance status, the driver who rear-ended you may cover your losses through their insurance. If their insurance does not cover your losses, we may pursue additional coverage through a lawsuit.
How Do We Determine the Cost of Your Rear-End Accident in Texas?
The cost of your rear-end accident may determine whether we file a lawsuit. We will gauge the value of your rear-end accident by:
- Speaking with your doctors about your medical care (current and future)
- Obtaining your income statements to see how much compensation you have lost (and are likely to lose going forward)
- Reviewing repair costs for your vehicle and any other property damages resulting from your accident
- Speaking with mental health professionals about your trauma
We will take any other necessary steps to evaluate the cost of your case.
