We Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable

A majority of car wrecks are caused by some kind of driver error. In some cases, an accident has been caused by an understandable mistake, but too often a car accident is the result of driver negligence, recklessness or impairment.

Auto accidents can vary in severity from a simple fender bender to a fatal crash. A more serious accident that results in personal injury will be investigated by the police in order to determine the cause and whether someone should be held responsible.

When drivers are found to have caused injury to someone else through negligence or recklessness, they can and should be held legally liable. You may also seek to hold third parties liable for car accidents caused by defective automobiles or parts or dangerous road conditions.

If you have been injured in a car crash caused by a careless or reckless driver or a third-party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Car repair or replacement costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Wrongful death
  • Punitive damages in egregious cases.

Automobile accidents can result in an array of injuries from whiplash to hearing loss, broken bones to burns, and more. Serious injuries can result in the need for hospital stays, surgery, rehabilitation and lengthy recoveries, if not permanent disability.

It is crucial that your accident claim encompass all of your losses if you are to be made whole financially.

Bringing Our Experience in Texas to Your Auto Accident Claim

An experienced Dallas auto accident lawyer from Kraft & Associates can ensure that your rights and interests are protected. We are ready to:

  • Thoroughly investigate your accident
  • Establish legal responsibility
  • Calculate all of your losses past, present and future
  • Negotiate from a position of strength for the compensation you deserve.               

In most cases, car wreck claims are settled with the at-fault driver’s insurance company before trial or even before a lawsuit is filed. However, insurance companies are for-profit businesses primarily concerned with their own bottom line.

Our firm is familiar with the tactics insurance companies employ to get injured parties to settle quickly for less compensation than they deserve. Hiring an experienced attorney like ours at Kraft & Associates puts a stop to deceptive or unprincipled insurance company practices right away.

In most cases, once we present a solid accounting of your injuries, losses and compensation due, we can obtain a fair settlement. When an insurance company will not do what’s right, we are prepared to go to court and prevail.

The law also imposes a time limit known as a statute of limitations on filing personal injury claims in Texas.  Don’t delay the start of work on your claim. Contact us today for a free assessment of your case.

If you have received a settlement offer, do not sign anything. Let us review it for you at no charge.

Q: What should I do if I am involved in a car accident in Texas?

A: If you have been seriously hurt in an accident, call 911. Even if your injuries do not seem serious at first, you should still see a doctor for a full medical exam to rule out internal injuries or other problems that are not immediately apparent.

If you do not require emergency medical services, take the following steps after an accident:

  • Call the police.
  • Get information from the other drivers, including names, phone numbers, addresses, license numbers and insurance information.
  • Take pictures of all vehicles involved in the collision.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene.
  • Get names and contact information for any eyewitnesses.
  • When the police arrive, get the name of the officer filing the report and the report number.
  • Find out when the police report will be available and get a copy as soon as possible.
  • See a doctor within the next 24 hours.
  • Save copies of every document related to your accident, injuries, medical treatment, car repairs, etc.
  • Consult with an experienced accident attorney before you talk to an insurance adjuster or sign any documents.

REMEMBER:

  • If you have been unjustly injured in a car accident, you deserve to be compensated.
  • The insurance companies – even “your” insurer – will work to protect their own profit margins at your expense.
  • A full investigation of your accident, injuries and medical needs is necessary to determine the full compensation you should receive.
  • Hiring a car accident lawyer experienced in Texas, such as from the Dallas law firm of Kraft & Associates, is your best chance to settle your car accident claim or fight for a fair settlement in court.
  • Your initial legal consultation is free of charge with a Kraft & Associates personal injury lawyer.
