How much money you recover in any auto accident case may well depend on how much insurance coverage is paid up and available for your case. The Odessa, Texas auto accident lawyers at Carabin Shaw understand all too well the subtle nuances involved in dealing with all auto insurance policies and the best way to seek the best chance at maximum amount available.

The auto insurance policies that might well be involved in a case such as yours:

  • The at-fault driver’s liability coverage – Under current Texas state law, all drivers must have certain minimum coverages in terms of minimum liability amounts of exposure to pay for any damages they are legally responsible for. Currently, those mandatory minimums are:
    • $30,000 for each bodily injury per person
    • $60,000 for total bodily injury per accident
    • $25,000 for total property damage per accident.
  • Underinsured/uninsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage – This amount is your own insurance policy coverage. This might be in play if the other driver or drivers didn’t have insurance, fled from the accident scene (resulting in a “hit-and-run” crash) or the other vehicle’s insurance isn’t enough to cover your losses fully.
  • Other types of insurance policies (Med Pay, Umbrella/Excess, Employer, and/or PIP) – In many circumstances, driver who was at-fault was on the clock for an employer and was acting in the scope and course of his job when your accident happened. When this is the case there is frequently an additional policy covering employees that we can make a claim against. One other option is for us to investigate whether or not the driver who was at-fault had an excess or umbrella policy. Carabin Shaw can also check out your own auto insurance policy to see if any other coverage may be available in your situation such as comprehensive coverage, collision coverage, personal injury coverage or coverage for medical payments.

Whatever type of insurance carrier gets involved in your case, you can always expect insurance carriers to fight hard to protect their shareholders’ profits that they can. Their main goal is to not pay claims or to make them go away for as little money as possible. Be assured, Carabin Shaw will always be at your side to go after the maximum legal amount of money we can get you for your injuries.
