About East Texas Car and Truck Accidents
Driver inattention and speeding are the two leading causes of car accidents in Texas.
As drivers on Texas roads, we take for granted that everyone else is paying attention, not texting while driving or driving while distracted, and at a minimum following all of the "rules of the road." But it only takes a second for all of that to change. For us to realize that not everyone is paying attention. Some drivers are driving too fast for conditions or speeding. Others are texting or browsing the web while driving. Others fall asleep or simply follow too closely to avoid an accident. And in as short as one second, everything changes.
At Richards Penn Bonner, our job is to deal with the insurance companies for you and hold negligent drivers (and their insurance companies) responsible for their actions.
Insurance companies do not want to pay the full amount of claims, especially when there is no attorney involved. They know that they can offer you a quick settlement. But if you take it, your case is over. And if you later learn, as is common, that your injuries are more substantial than they first appeared, you have lost your chance to have those medical bills paid by the person who is at fault – the person who should be paying for your medical bills….the negligent driver and his or her insurance company.
FOR THE BEST RESULTS, TALK TO US RIGHT AWAY
In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is typically two years from the date of the incident. As a result, it is crucial to enlist the services of a proficient personal injury lawyer as soon as feasible following the accident. In situations involving fatal semitrailer accidents and other types of crashes, it is similarly imperative to act expeditiously in order to preserve any pertinent evidence, such as skid marks or gouging on the roadway, interviewing impartial witnesses, and safeguarding the vehicles involved in the collision, which may prove to be valuable in the litigation process.
With over 80 years of experience, our lawyers have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements for those injured in car wrecks all over Texas and the United States.See our recent victories
