How our Dallas Auto Accident Lawyers can Help You

Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are injured in auto accidents. And in Texas alone, there were 19,506 serious injury crashes, resulting in 30,992 serious injury victims. If you’ve been hurt in a crash in Dallas, you’re likely dealing with expensive medical bills, vehicle damage costs, and serious emotional stress.

You may be wondering how to make up for lost income, how to choose the right auto accident lawyer in Dallas, or just what to do next after your car accident in Dallas. Fortunately, our experts at Carabin Shaw are here to help. Read on to learn how our Dallas auto accident lawyers can help you following your wreck and find out what to do next.

How a Lawyer Can Help After a Car Wreck

Not all car accidents necessitate hiring an attorney. For minor accidents, most crash victims will not need to hire legal representation. However, in cases where victims have sustained serious or life-threatening injuries, it is wise to hire a personal injury attorney rather than going it alone. This is because insurance companies work diligently to avoid paying out costly settlements, and without someone to help you negotiate with them, they may pay you far less than what you are actually owed.

Furthermore, without hiring an attorney, you will not know the full extent of your legal options and rights. After a crash caused by the other driver, you may have the right to sue them for negligence—but the only way to know whether or not you have grounds for a negligence claim is to consult with an attorney who can review the facts.

Put simply, neglecting to consult with a lawyer following a serious wreck means that you may very well be leaving money on the table—which could result in your inability to pay your medical bills, or worse.

Our Dallas Auto Accident Lawyers Can Help You After a Crash

Our attorneys at Carabin Shaw can assist you in several ways following a car crash, including:

1. Establishing Liability

Many car crash victims do not realize that the police report does not legally determine liability in a crash. The police report is just one of many factors that will determine liability. We will help you establish liability by interviewing witnesses, reviewing traffic laws, and investigating the circumstances that led to your crash.

2. Build and File a Personal Injury Claim

After liability has been established, we can help you file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver or party, if you choose to go this route.

3. Negotiate for a Fair Settlement

If the insurance company offers you an amount that is too low, we will negotiate with them on your behalf to ensure you get fair compensation for your injuries. If they refuse to negotiate, we can help you file a lawsuit.

4. Represent You in Court

If your personal injury claim goes to trial, our Dallas personal injury attorneys will fight for you in court and help you prepare at every step of the way.
