As the city of McAllen grows and flourishes, so do the number of vehicles on its roads – and the number of car accidents.
One of the prices paid for the growth of the city is that Hildalgo County now ranks among the top 10 leading counties in Texas for increase in traffic fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Of particular concern is the increase in alcohol-related accidents and speeding. Accidents at high speed nearly always cause severe injury or fatalities.
As experienced car accident lawyers located here in the Rio Grande Valley, DeHoyos Law can help you claim compensation if you or a family member has been adversely affected by a car accident.
Typical car accident injuries range from superficial wounds that may heal after a few days to life-altering injuries that severely impact the quality of life.
Common injuries include:
Potentially longer-lasting or even permanent injuries that severely impact your life may include:
Some injuries are severe and immediately evident at the time of the accident. Others can develop in the aftermath of the accident and progressively worsen over time.
No two accidents are the same. The extent of car accident injuries typically depends upon the following factors:
If you or a loved one are injured in a car accident in McAllen, first make sure that you receive the immediate medical care you need.
Even if you think you’re not injured, it’s important to get checked by a medical professional.
After an accident, you may not be thinking clearly. Remember that you may have internal injuries that only present themselves hours or even days later.
Be sure to follow your treatment plan as prescribed by your doctor and to attend all follow-up appointments.
By seeing a medical professional, you also ensure that your injuries are documented and that you are able to provide the evidence you need to a third-party insurance company.
It can be difficult to remain composed after an accident but you should also try to do the following:
Remember to act within a reasonable time frame. The limit for making a claim for a car accident in Texas is two years.
Insurance companies can be difficult to deal with and even in clear cases of negligent or reckless driving, you may be offered less compensation than you are entitled to.
Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be able to claim for:
Some of the above can be difficult to prove. Other aspects are more straightforward.
After examining your case, our experienced McAllen car accident lawyers will determine the extent of your claim and provide an estimate of compensation due.
Some car accidents in McAllen are clearly the fault of one driver. Others are more complex and may involve multiple parties.
Texas is a “comparative negligence” or “comparative fault” state.
This means that you can claim damages for a proportion of fault for an accident even if you are found to be partly at fault yourself. This is called “proportionate responsibility”.
For instance, if you sued and were awarded $100,000 but the court found you to be 25 percent at fault, you would receive only $75,000 of the award. If two other parties were found to be equally at fault for the remaining 75 percent, they would each need to pay $37,500.
Texas law states that if you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you cannot make a claim against other parties.
The complex process of making a claim for car accident injuries is considerably easier if you have expert legal representation from DeHoyos Law.
We will ensure that all the facts of your case are examined and all your losses assessed. You should not need to settle for anything less than you deserve.
We only get paid if you win your claim. Arrange a free consultation today to start the process.
