Laredo Multiple Party Accidents
An auto accident in Laredo disrupts your daily life in ways few experiences can. In addition to the moments immediately following the crash, when you have to move off the roadway and wait for the police to arrive, you are consumed with worry about getting your car repaired, reserving a rental car, getting medical attention for injuries sustained by you or any passengers in your car, and, of course, talking with the insurance company.
It’s hard enough if only two cars have an accident in Laredo. This process becomes even more complicated and frustrating if it involves three or more vehicles. A Laredo multiple party accident can extend the time it takes to resolve issues of liability and who is responsible for compensation of the other parties.
Further affecting the outcome of the accident are the laws in the state of Texas. Texas is a “comparative negligence” state. This means that each driver can be assigned a percentage of negligence based on their actions leading up to the accident. The total amount of compensation to which you're entitled can be reduced by the percentage of negligence you contributed to the collision. This is usually determined by the insurance companies and their lawyers.
In the days following a Laredo multiple party accident, you may be contacted by a claims adjuster working for the insurance companies of the other drivers. They will ask you to give them a recorded or written statement, schedule a time to inspect your vehicle, and discuss your injuries. They may even try to settle with you quickly and ask you to sign a release preventing you from seeking any further compensation for your damages.
Insurance companies have attorneys working for them to protect their interests and lower any amount they may have to pay you as a result of the negligence of the driver they represent. If you enter into that process without being fully aware of your rights you could jeopardize your rights and lose out on the full compensation you deserve.
