Dallas Car Wrecks and Legal Representation

Submitted by jrlaw on Sep 8th, 2010

Anyone involved in a Dallas car accident should investigate whether or not they have a right to monetary compensation. People are sometimes discouraged from seeking a lawyer because of their worries about fees. There are lawyers who take cases on contingencies. Under such an agreement, the lawyer’s sole way of getting paid is if they win your case. They may win it in court through a jury or settlement, but they have to win you some sort of compensation before they collect any fees for their services.

A car accident personal injury claim starts the moment the wreck is over. If everyone is okay and after speaking to law enforcement, call your attorney. Note that you should call your attorney before calling your insurance company. The attorney will advise you on how to handle the insurance company, or they may elect to handle the insurance company on your behalf. In either case, it means that your case isn’t self-sabotaged by your incorrectly dealing with your insurer. Even though they may be a great company, insurers do have an interest in denying your claim as making is profit is always their first and foremost concern.

If you’re in a big rig crash, the stakes and expenses may be even higher. These wrecks are far more likely to cause death, simply due to the tremendous mass of these vehicles. Semi drivers also have a hard time with blind spots and, most especially, with driving on tight city streets. Whether or not they have a hard time of it, they are required to respect your right to the road. If you’ve been injured by a driver who wasn’t adequately trained, rested or who wasn’t provided with good equipment, you may have a claim and should contact an attorney.

There is no guarantee that you’ll win a claim, no matter what vehicle accident lawyer you engage. However, if the other driver is at fault and you’ve been injured, it makes sense to see if there is a source of financial compensation available to you. A lawyer can help you to find out and, if needed, they can take your case all the way to court. In some cases, you may be able to avoid court altogether, if the company or the individual involved in the accident elects to offer a settlement for your pain and suffering and if it’s acceptable.
