Laredo Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
As one of the biggest cities in Texas, Laredo sees a significant amount of traffic move around its major roads and highways. This also means Laredo sees a significant number of auto accidents each year; in 2022, the Texas Department of Transportation saw almost six thousand reports of accidents on roads in and around Laredo. Over 100 of these were suspected to be serious crashes and all involved some property damage.
When Texans and their loved ones need help after a motor vehicle accident in Laredo, they call the Texas attorneys at Carabin Shaw. Our passionate group of personal injury lawyers has decades of experience helping Texans see their legal claims through from creation to settlement, and we’re ready to help you, too.
We know that pursuing a motor vehicle accident settlement in Laredo can be a difficult and expensive process to begin alone, especially while you’re recovering from injuries, which is why we want all our clients to be able to focus on healing while we build a winning case for them. This is also why we offer free case reviews and initial consultations to all potential clients so you won’t need to worry about spending any money up front.How Do Civil Cases Work?
Your case will be tried in civil court, where compensatory damages are paid to plaintiffs (injured parties) by negligent individuals or entities who have been found at fault for the plaintiffs’ injuries or losses.
After meeting and talking with you, our Laredo motor vehicle accident lawyers will be able to better determine what damages you can claim. This is why a detailed account of your accident, injuries, property damage, and related bills is extremely helpful in getting you the maximum compensation you are owed. While your medical team will have a lot of helpful information, your own accounting is especially valuable in determining exactly how much you should claim in damages.
As our team develops your case, you can expect a lot of transparency and communication from us. At Carabin Shaw, we know that civil cases can be confusing and daunting for people who don’t deal with legal issues every day, and we like to make our clients feel as comfortable with and included in the process as possible. If you read some of Carabin Shaw’s client reviews, you’ll see stories from other Texans we’ve helped who appreciate the individual touch we bring to each client relationship.What Damages Can You Claim?
Many auto accident victims don’t get all the compensation available to them because they don’t know that there are several types of legally valid losses that can be claimed in civil court. Our motor vehicle accident lawyers in Laredo, TX can help comb through the details of your case to see what losses you can claim. Generally, these are broken down into monetary and non-monetary losses:
- Medical expenses including past and future care, doctor’s appointments, ambulance rides, prescriptions, and physical therapy
- Lost wages or ability to earn income in the same capacity as before
- Expenses related to a disability incurred from the auto accident
- Funeral expenses
- Lost or damaged property
- Pain and suffering (physical or emotional pain, emotional distress, loss of ability to enjoy life)
