How Can a Dallas Car Accident Attorney Help Injured Victims After the Accident?
We understand that an automobile crash is a costly ordeal. Your vehicle may require expensive repairs, or you may need a new vehicle altogether. If you are injured, you may accumulate thousands of dollars in hospital bills and miss work due to your injuries. If a family member is killed in a car or motorcycle accident, funeral costs may pose an unexpected expense. In addition to being a financial burden, accidents can cause intense emotional pain and suffering.
Our Dallas car accident lawyers handle variety of cases including but not limited to:
- Drunk driving accident
In these situations, you may also be entitled to claims of gross negligence. When a person drinks and drives, they act recklessly without any regard for the safety of others resulting in the victim’s injuries or death.
- SUV rollover accident
Although technology has improved it has not made it impossible to prevent SUV Rollovers. Failing to take proper evasive actions could easily cause a SUV to rollover and people can be ejected from the car.
- Head-on-Collision accident
Head on Collisions are some of the deadliest collisions. In head on collisions the passengers inside the vehicle are usually ejected or suffer permanent injuries. While handling these cases we usually come across product liability cases when the airbag malfunctions, seat breaks, dashboards are launched out of their place and other product defects with the vehicle.
- Distracted driving accident
Most distracted driving accidents occur while are drinking a beverage, trying to select a music to play, or looking for directions. Distracted driving is the number one cause of most vehicular collisions. All it takes is second for you to look away and the person in front of you slams on the brakes. The distracted driver has a lower response time therefore, resulting in a collision.
- Texting while driving accident
Texas Recently incorporated new laws that make texting and driving illegal. The law is not enforced heavily however, when you are involved in a car accident your cell phone use becomes an important factor. Cell phone use could be playing music, getting direction, texting and driving, browning the internet, social media, or other apps on your phone. The phone stores the data and we usually pull that data on collisions to prove liability.
- Uninsured motorist accident
Texas has a minimum requirement to carry insurance policies of $25K (Property) / 30K (Liability Bodily Injury) / 60K (Aggregate of all Bodily injuries involved in the collision.) Some people fail to obtain this minimum policy and therefore could leave you stranded with no compensation.
- Under-insured motorist accident
If you were severely injured in a heavy impact collision the Texas minimum policy may not cover all your damages. That is why it is important that you contact a Personal Injury Lawyer to explore your options immediately after a collision.
- Uber or Lyft accident
Uber and Lyft are applications used more commonly than before for public transportation. Since they are an application and the driver of your vehicle is not necessarily the employee of the company it is important you discuss your case with a Car Accident Lawyer familiar with these situations before making a claim with their insurance company
Chalaki Law’s Dallas accident lawyers will work hard to make sure you get the compensation you need and deserve. We have a record of success helping victims recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
