Frequently Asked Questions


What Steps Should I Take Immediately Following a Car Accident in Dallas?

Answer: Immediately after a car accident in Dallas, ensure that you and any passengers you may have are safe. You will then want to call 911 to report the accident and address any injuries to you or your passengers. If necessary, medical assistance will arrive at the scene along with the police. Remember, it is important to seek medical attention even if there are no obvious signs of injury to you or your passengers. Not all injuries are apparent, such as head trauma and concussions. You may be more injured than you appear to be.

Furthermore, if possible, you will want to capture pictures of the scene, such as damage to other vehicles and visible injuries. Then, gather necessary information from all involved parties and witnesses, including names, contact details, and insurance information. Finally, contact a Dallas car accident attorney to help you determine the best approach to take when pursuing an injury claim and dealing with insurance companies.


How Can I Claim Compensation After a Truck Accident in Dallas?

Answer: After a truck accident, promptly contact your insurance company and report the accident. While it is important to get the claim started, be careful not to sign any documents or accept settlement offers hastily. This is because initial offers may not fully cover your expenses or damages. Therefore, it is imperative to consult with an attorney before making any commitments. A skilled attorney can guide you through the process, ensuring you can receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.


What Are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Carrollton, TX?

Answer: Several factors can contribute to motorcycle accidents. Speeding often tops the list, as higher speeds decrease the time for reaction, making accidents more likely. Unexpected road hazards like potholes, debris, and slippery surfaces pose significant risks. Lane splitting, or driving between two lanes of traffic, often results in accidents due to the close proximity of vehicles. Lastly, driving under the influence greatly impairs judgment and coordination, leading to dangerous situations and potentially severe accidents.


Who Can Be Held Liable in Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles Like Buses and Trucks?

Answer: Liability for accidents involving commercial vehicles can extend beyond the drivers and the carriers employing them. The manufacturer of the vehicle and its parts can be held responsible if defective parts contribute to the accident. Moreover, vendors providing services to the carrier may also be liable if their negligence leads to unsafe conditions. Local government entities or contractors responsible for highway design and maintenance may be held liable if poor road conditions contributed to the accident. Each case is unique, and multiple parties may share liability.


How Do I Deal With Insurance Companies After a Vehicle Accident?

Answer: Dealing with an insurance company requires extreme caution. Letting them know you have been in an accident is okay. Still, you do not want to reveal too much information, as insurance companies will do anything and everything possible to pay you as little as possible. A best practice is letting your attorney do most of the talking with the insurance company. Your lawyer will know the strategies that are often employed by insurance companies, and they can ensure that nothing is said that will hurt your chance to obtain as much compensation as possible.


What Compensation Might I Be Eligible for After a Pedestrian Accident in Dallas?

Answer: You may be eligible for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover quantifiable losses, such as medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages, and loss of earning ability. Meanwhile, non-economic damages, though not as easily identifiable, provide compensation for things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Punitive damages may also apply if extreme negligence is relevant to your case.


Can I Receive Compensation for Pain and Suffering After a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Answer: Yes, after a motor vehicle accident, you may certainly be eligible for pain and suffering damages. These are considered non-economic damages meant to compensate you for physical discomfort, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and similar hardships caused by the accident. Calculating these damages can be difficult, as they are largely subjective and can vary from case to case. However, these kinds of damages can significantly impact your total compensation.


How Long Do I Have to File an Accident Claim in Texas?

Answer: For personal injury claims in Texas, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. However, you may have as little as 30 days to file a claim with your insurance company. That is why it is important to let your insurance company know you have been in an accident without telling them too much, but enough to get your claim started. Then, you can set yourself up for success by letting your lawyer handle the rest of the talking with the insurance company.


What Should I Do if a Loved One Died in a Vehicle Accident?

Answer: You should first figure out what caused the death. In cases where negligence played a factor, eligible family members may be interested in pursuing wrongful death compensation. Act quickly, as doing so can help preserve evidence, witness testimony, and more.


What Are the Legal Responsibilities of a Driver Involved in a Traffic Accident?

Answer: Pursuant to the Texas Transportation Code, in accidents where the chance of injury or death is “reasonably likely,” you must stop and stay at the scene and exchange information with others who were involved. You must also provide reasonable assistance, such as taking someone to the hospital if it is clear that treatment is necessary or if the person injured asks that you bring them to the hospital. Remember that failing to stop and render aid may result in criminal penalties, particularly if anyone dies in the accident. That being said, if you were a passenger or eyewitness, you are not required by law to stop and render aid.


How Does Negligence Impact My Car Accident Claim in Dallas?

Answer: Negligence is a very important factor in car accident claims. In personal injury lawsuits, negligence must be proven through a preponderance of the evidence, which means there is more than a 50 percent chance that the defendant’s negligent actions caused the accident. Negligence has four factors: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. Your attorney will be instrumental in identifying and proving these elements.
