Filing a Claim for Negligence Against a Driver

Submitted by jrlaw on Apr 28th, 2011

Before you start thinking about filing a claim for negligence against another driver, you have to contact a competent attorney. A good Dallas auto accident lawyer can make sure that your case has the best chance of winning in court but, of course, you won't know if it will win or not until it's argued in front of a jury. To increase your chances, you want to make sure that your lawyer has some qualifications in this area.

A Proven Track Record

Look to a lawyer who has served as a car accident lawyer for many clients. Flashy advertising is no substitute for experience. You'll need to make sure that they understand the nuances of the law in this regard and that they're qualified to take your case to court and, if necessary, to argue it in front of a jury.

A Good Way with Clients

Your attorney should inspire confidence in you. A good attorney knows how to instill confidence in their clients and they do it, principally, by simply doing their jobs well. When you have a good attorney, you won't be intimidated about going to court to have your claim tested. In fact, you'll look forward to it as you'll be ready for the fight and feel completely able to handle whatever might be thrown your way.

Mild Winters are Dangerous Winters on the Road

In the winter, the comparatively mild conditions sometimes make it seem like you’re at less risk of getting in a Dallas car accident than is truly the case. In areas where the winters are severe and the snow is deep, just about everyone is a very experienced, competent and, above all other things, patient winter driver. In Dallas, winter weather is usually characterized by freezing rain and sometimes a bit of snow. Believe it or not, this presents some dangers that people in snowier climes don’t face quite as often.

In a very snowy area, drivers who start sliding out of control will oftentimes aim for the closest snow bank to stop themselves. It does damage, to be sure, but it’s a lot better than hitting a car, telephone pole or other unyielding surface. In climates such as Dallas, there may be enough snow on the road to make you lose control, but there’s certainly not a 6-foot snow bank anywhere to stop you from sliding. In some ways, milder climates present the same dangers with none of the benefits of having a roadway covered in soft, forgiving snow.
