When Should You Hire an Odessa Car Accident Attorney?

Are you in Odessa, Texas? Were you or your loved one injured in an auto accident?

Give Carabin Shaw a call. We can help. Call us at 800-862-1260

Auto accidents are the leading cause of injuries related to transportation across the United States and here locally in our Odessa region. Many Americans are totally dependent on their cars to perform each almost every part of our daily routine, including driving to doctors, shopping school, work, the store, and various other common tasks and chores. The inevitable result of this is that, no matter how conservative and safe a driver may be, you will probably get involved with some sort of car accident one of these days. This unfortunate reality gets even more likely when you live in or near a city such as we do in Odessa, Texas. More accidents happen here in Odessa because we live in an important center in West Texas and because of the Air Force Base in our Odessa area.

Certainly, not each and every auto accident is really serious enough that you hire an experienced auto accident attorney. Car accident attorneys really only become a necessity when your accident results in injuries serious enough to need skilled medical attention, or an accident that subtracts from your daily routine or your quality of life. In such cases, you should retain an Odessa, Texas car accident attorney. One of ours at Carabin Shaw can help you to protect you and your family’s legal rights and make sure that you and your family get the competent advice and the best chance at the monetary compensation you need and deserve.

You should always contact a veteran Odessa car accident lawyer when you have injuries such that:

  1. Your injury will make you lose some wages or time from work; or
  2. If an auto crash causes you to become disfigured; or
  3. Your auto accident causes you to suffer from permanent aches and pains; or
  4. If you have suffered what is known as a “loss of consortium” because of a car crash injury to you or your spouse. Please do note that a “loss of consortium” claim encompasses all negative effects on the relationship within a marriage, including loss of sexual relations, loss of companionship, loss of emotional support or loss of love and/or affection.

If you or a loved one has suffered an auto accident any or all of the factors listed above are present, then you and/or your family should call Carabin Shaw immediately.

How Does Texas Determine Car Accident Negligence?

In Texas, we have a legal procedure to determine if negligence is involved in your car accident. This standard is called “proper lookout.” This means that drivers have to pay attention to both other drivers and the road and their failure to do this could result in their being held liable for negligence in an Odessa Texas auto accident.

When you need one of our lawyers, Carabin Shaw will be available to you at your convenience. Your first consultation is free in any injury case. That first consultation is of course no obligation to you. When you need to fight the insurance company and its hired guns, Carabin Shaw can be in your corner. We can, and will, get you the best possible chance at the maximum recovery allowed by law. We take all of our injury cases on a contingent fee basis. Our fee is based upon a percentage of what recover for you and your family. This means that if we don’t get you a recovery, we don’t charge you legal fee.
