McAllen Practice Areas

With increasing numbers of vehicles on our McAllen roads, chances are there will come a time you will be involved in an auto accident with another vehicle or large commercial truck. Perhaps several vehicles are involved. If you experience an auto accident, you will want to speak with a McAllen injury attorney.

As you try to work through the aftermath of an accident you will need to deal with repairing your vehicle, getting a rental car, and, most distressing, seeking medical attention if you’ve been injured. But what if you’re not at fault for the accident? How can you get compensated for your injuries and other damages?

Since Texas is a comparative negligence state, each party in an accident may be assigned a percentage of fault, depending on the actions of each driver. Even if one driver is found to be most at fault, the injured parties may have their amount of payment diminished if it’s determined they contributed to the accident in some way. Who determines this? The claims adjuster for the other driver’s insurance company.

Whether the insurance adjuster is acting on behalf of a passenger vehicle or a large company, he will work to minimize the amount they will owe you. Before you talk to the other insurance company, consider speaking first with an injury attorney in McAllen.

The adjuster for the other insurance company may try and secure a written or recorded statement from you or sign a release to keep you from pursuing any additional damages. He may even try and make a quick settlement with you before you’ve completed treatment for your injuries.

It’s important for you to protect your rights. The other insurance company will have attorneys working on their behalf. You need the services of a skilled and experienced attorney who knows how to fight the big insurance companies and represent your best interests so you can receive the maximum amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
