YOU MAY NEED A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER DEPENDING ON THE SURROUNDING CIRCUMSTANCES.

The majority of the time, if were injured in an accident in Texas, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you preserve your rights. Under Texas law, you are entitled to recover for your injuries, medical bills, and other accident-related expenses. There are so many variables involved in car accidents that affect the outcome of any claims arising from them. The best way to handle a particular auto accident case is different, depending on the individual circumstances. As a result, it is essential to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer who has a broad range of experience with many types of accidents and injuries to make sure your rights are fully protected.

ACCIDENT CASES NEED TO BE HANDLED RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

It is critical that procedural and filing requirements are handled the right way the first time around. A victim of an accident has one opportunity only to seek compensation for all injuries and damages that arise from an accident. If a deadline is missed or an injury is not properly documented by gathering information from witnesses, taking photographs, and seeking the appropriate medical treatment, the chance to recover damages may be lost forever. The cost of car accident-related medical treatment can reach well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The severity of injuries suffered can range from temporary discomfort to chronic problems to permanent disability or even death. The risk is too great not to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer if you’ve been injured.

THE CAUSES AND CIRCUMSTANCES OF AN ACCIDENT WILL AFFECT WHAT DAMAGES YOU CAN RECOVER

Some of the most common causes of accidents include:

  • drowsy driving
  • drunk driving
  • distracted driving
  • speeding
  • improper lane changes
  • failure to obey traffic signs and signal
  • failure to yield to drivers with the right-of-way
  • failure to do a proper inspection
  • failure to maintain
  • failure to follow instructions

There are, however; many other causes, and what caused the accident may affect the compensation you can seek for your injuries. In addition to causes, there are many other circumstances why it is pertinent to call a personal injury lawyer. Some accidents involve those without car insurance. In these situations, you may still be covered in some situations. A personal injury lawyer from Chalaki Law P.C. can help you understand if another insurance covers your auto accident.

THE MECHANISM OF INJURY AND CAUSES OF INJURY AFFECT THE TREATMENT AND YOUR RECOVERY.

The types of injury caused will vary depending on the “mechanism of injury,” or what physical forces were in play when the accident happened. Factors influencing the mechanism of injury include:

  • the speed of the car
  • the force of the impact
  • the placement and angle of impact (whether the collision was head-on, rear-end, offset, or side-impact, also known as a “T-Bone” collision)
  • the positions of the people in the car at the time of impact
  • whether the driver and passengers were restrained by seat belts and/or airbags

There can be one or many causes of injury in an auto accident, and you must pursue claims with any person or entity who was all or part of the cause of an accident to be fully compensated for your injuries. A car accident victim could have a number of claims resulting from one accident against:

  • Other drivers, pedestrians or people who created a situation you had to avoid
  • The owner of a building or business that wasn’t properly maintained or created a hazard
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle, seat belts or air bags
  • Those who handled the servicing and/or repair of the car
  • The transportation authority for inadequate or faulty signs or traffic signals
  • A government entity for a contributory condition of the roadway

NOT ALL INJURIES ARE IMMEDIATELY OBVIOUS

To further complicate matters, there are as many types of injuries and parts of the body affected by car accidents as there are causes of the accidents themselves, and the injuries sustained depend heavily on the circumstances of each individual auto accident. Injuries to the brain, neck, back, hip, knee and leg are some of the most common, but every part of the body is vulnerable depending on how the car accident happened. Injuries to bones are easy to see, while injuries to soft tissues like muscles, ligaments and tendons, and injuries to internal organs are not always apparent immediately after the auto accident and this is why it is vital to speak with an experienced Dallas car accident lawyer. Soft tissue and internal injuries are no less serious or painful, and require no less diligent care just because they aren’t felt right away or visible to the naked eye.
