Car Accidents

Injured in a Car Accident in Texas?

Why Do You Need a Car Accident Attorney?

Our roads, and highways are more crowded than before thanks to the continuous expansion of the cities in the South of Texas. This has led to a large rise in the total number of car accidents. After a car wreck, it is not only important to settle your claim quickly but, most importantly, that you are fairly compensated for your losses.

At first glance, submitting a personal injury claim after a car accident may seem simple. However, the truth is, these claims are often very complex, and getting fair compensation can be extremely challenging without the help of a skilled car accident lawyer

As your car accident attorneys, Mr. Tijerina, and his team will fight to make sure the insurance company does not take advantage of you. We’ll handle every detail of your case, from investigating the accident, and gathering appropriate evidence to submitting your formal claim, and negotiating a fair settlement. For Tijerina Legal Group, helping injured victims, and their families is more than a job—it’s a calling.

How Can An Experienced Injury Attorney Help You In A Car Crash Case?

First, it is important to establish the difference between property damage, and bodily injuries. 

Some accidents result in property damage alone. Was your car just dinged up or was it totaled in the crash? Did you have valuables, like baby car seats or custom rims, that were also damaged during the crash? The extent of the damage, and the value of your property play a large role in determining how much you may be able to recover in compensation. 

On the other hand, if you or your passengers were hurt in the crash, this would account for “bodily injury”. Again, the extent, and severity of these injuries play a role in the value of your claim. In general, the greater your injuries, the higher the value of your potential case.

It is extremely important to not only gather evidence, and medical records that support your claim but also to ensure you properly submit your claim. Insurance companies are highly interested in underpaying, and denying claims. Any mistakes could jeopardize your recovery.

An experienced injury attorney knows how to review a potential case. Not only can your attorney estimate the value of the claim, but they can also identify strengths, and weaknesses in your case. This can help set expectations, and reduce your stress as you navigate the process of securing compensation for your medical bills, lost wages,, and other damages. The point is that a skilled lawyer may be able to help navigate you through this difficult time.
