Houston Auto Injury Lawyer
Don’t let the opportunity for compensation pass you by after your car accident. Get in touch with a Houston auto injury attorney.
Another motorist drives drunk, distracted, or drowsy; a manufacturer sells you a defective car; a government agency fails to maintain safe roads—all of these factors and more can cause an auto accident. And auto accidents can leave you injured.
When that happens, you deserve compensation as you work to recover the physical, emotional, and financial stability you once had. Call us today and speak with an attorney that is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
As you begin the process of filing a claim for personal injury compensation after your auto accident, you’re probably going to find that dealing with the insurance company is among the most difficult challenges you’re going to face.
That’s because insurers will do everything they can to downplay your injuries and overstate your involvement in the crash that injured you. They do this because it can help them justify paying you less—insurance companies are for-profit businesses, after all.
A Houston auto accident lawyer with our firm won’t be concerned with the insurance company’s bottom line, however. Your attorney’s only concern will be getting you every cent you’re owed. A determined legal ally will know how to fight back against the insurance company’s schemes and push to get you the full and fair compensation you’re entitled to.
Types of Houston Auto Injuries
The types of injuries you suffered in your Houston auto accident will make a big impact on the value of your claim. Each injury type can cause different hardships for which you should be compensated, although all types of accidents are likely to result in significant medical bills and damage to your vehicle.
The following are some common Houston car accident injuries and the damages they may entail:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) – A TBI can occur when the head is moved with enough force to cause an impact on the brain—a common effect of head-on auto collisions. TBIs can render you unable to work or care for yourself, so you may need compensation for those items.
- Spine Injuries – Spine and back injuries can lead to everything from chronic back pain to complete paralysis. After a spine injury, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.
- Broken Bones – Bone breaks and fractures are fairly common but can cause serious pain and disability nonetheless. A broken bone can require you to recover for weeks before you return to work and may later require physical therapy.
- Burns – When cars crash, they sometimes catch on fire. That can lead to burns. Car accident burn victims are often compensated for many damages, including potential scarring and disfigurement.
The Statute of Limitations
Texas imposes a statute of limitations of two years on personal injury claims, which include car accident claims. If you fail to file your claim before this deadline, your case won’t be heard and you’ll be unable to receive compensation.
If you choose to work with an experienced Houston car crash injury lawyer, you won’t have to worry about meeting deadlines because your lawyer will take care of that for you.
