How Much is My Automobile Accident Case Worth?

The value of a car accident claim depends on many factors. An insurance adjuster may try to convince you that he knows exactly how much your car accident case is worth. However, the adjuster may be attempting to settle your claim for a lower amount before you have time to consult with a Texas automobile accidents attorney or complete medical treatment.

Beware of insurance companies that try to settle your car accident claim quickly. The offer of settlement may appear tempting, but the amount of the settlement offer may be much lower than the actual value of your claim. It is usually in your interest to allow Texas personal injury attorneys to review the offer before accepting the offer or signing any documents for the other driver’s insurance provider.

Who is Liable for Fatalities in Texas High Speed Chases?

If your loved one died because of a high-speed police pursuit in Texas, you might have legal recourse against the law enforcement agency and in some instances, against the police officer. It can be hard to know who you can sue for the death of your loved one in these situations. Working with an experienced Texas automobile accident attorney can be the difference between winning and losing.

Who Is to Blame When the Officer Follows the Department’s High-Speed Pursuit Policy?

You might think that a police officer who did not violate her department’s high-speed chase protocols when engaging in a pursuit that killed someone would be blameless, but this is not always the case. The Texas Department of Public Safety has assigned fault to officers who kill people in chases that complied with their department’s policies.

The Risks of Police Chases

About half of all high-speed police pursuits kill someone.  On the average, police chases will kill one person a day, every day in America. Since about 90 percent of police chases in Texas are for nonviolent crimes, these pursuits kill a lot of innocent people. Dallas reduced its chases by 90 percent by enacting stricter laws that only allow police pursuits in violent crimes.

Innocent bystanders in Austin have died because the police chased suspects of non-violent crimes. If all Texas cities enacted the same restrictions that Dallas has, it would prevent the senseless deaths of innocent people.

Five Secrets the Insurance Companies Won't Tell You

When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident in Texas, you have the right to file an injury claim against the driver or another party who caused the crash. However, because Texas is a “fault” state for insurance purposes, you must prove the other party was responsible for causing the crash and you were injured because of the crash. Therefore, insurance providers use several tactics to deny, delay, and undervalue valid accident claims to avoid paying accident victims the compensation they deserve. The insurance company does not want you to know this fact, so it uses subtle tactics to undermine your claim.
