Do You Understand What to do After a Texas Car Accident? Do You Know Why it Matters?
All right: it finally happened. You’re in a family of great drivers. But still, you (or a loved one has been involved in a major car accident near your home in Texas. It wasn’t your fault, and now you’re wondering what to do as you or your family members recover.
One thing that is most important, aside from your return to good health, is that you must protect your legal rights against those who would deny you fair damage compensation for your painful and often expensive injuries. Even if you’re insured, the person who hit you and caused all this mayhem must step-up and pay for the medical bills, pain, and suffering, and lost income during recovery, and other damages.
Your insurance company might be of some assistance as you sort this out through your PIP or uninsured motorist coverage. And that’s good. Eventually, the one who hit you has to pay for all of this. In a sense, your “good hands” auto dealer is fronting you the money to pay your medical bills. But if the other guy (or his insurance company) doesn’t step up to the plate, that unreimbursed PIP or uninsured motorist coverage you have will end up forcing you to pay higher coverage rates to your carrier. Medical bills are just the tip of the iceberg of the damage that your insurance company can’t help you with, past those medical bills.
Many times a car accident can be little more than a minor fender bender in a parking lot. Or they can be destructive wrecks that cause horrific injuries along with deep physical and psychological scars on the lives of the unlucky drivers and passengers. If it’s not your fault, regardless of whether it was minor or severe, you are likely entitled to seek compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional injuries you suffered in your car crash. It is impossible to know the amount of compensation you may be entitled to because the damages you have a right to seek are relative to the unique circumstances of your case.
