Texas Has One of the Highest Accident Rates in the Country
Car accidents are quickly becoming a leading cause of injury and death in the United States, but Texas, in particular, is noted for having one of the highest rates of fatal traffic accidents over the last few years
Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
Why You Should Let Us Deal with the Insurance Company
After a car accident in Austin Texas, it may be tempting to accept the first settlement offer you receive. However, you should know that the insurance company’s only goal is to settle your claim quickly, and for as little money as possible. They are NOT on your side – despite what they might tell you. The only person you should trust after an accident is your attorney.
We know how insurance companies operate, and we know what tactics they use to minimize, delay, and deny valid car accident claims. When you work with The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC, we will fight to protect your rights throughout every step of the process. If the insurance company won’t offer a fair settlement, we’re not afraid to take your case to trial.
Texas Shared Fault Laws for Car Accidents
A very common tactic of insurance companies is to claim that to you bear partial responsibility for the accident in an attempt to reduce the amount of compensation they owe. Even if it can be proven that you share some fault for the accident, Texas law still allows you to file a personal injury lawsuit. Under the modified comparative negligence rule, you can recover compensation as long as you are found to be less than 50% responsible for the accident.
Whatever percentage you are found at fault for the accident will be deducted from the final settlement or verdict, giving you your total recovery. For example, if you receive a $10,000 settlement from the insurance company but are found 20% at fault for the accident, you will receive an $8,000 recovery.
