COMPENSATION A GRAND PRAIRIE DWI ACCIDENT LAWYER CAN OBTAIN

Grand Praire Bicycle Accident A car accident may be a costly ordeal, with medical expenses, motor repairs, and lost income totaling thousands of dollars. Receiving compensation for an accident that wasn’t your fault can help you get the financial and medical help you need.

Insurance companies regularly underpay vehicle accident victims, paying either the bare minimum or partial losses indicated in a claim. Hiring an experienced attorney who is familiar with the strategies used by insurance companies will improve your chances of collecting reimbursement.

If we are unable to reach an arrangement with the insurance company, we may be able to pursue extra damages in a personal injury case, which may include both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are meant to help with bill payment, expenses, and property loss. These damages pay you for monetary losses such as medical costs, missed wages or the incapacity to earn future revenue, as well as vehicle damage.

Noneconomic damages are monetary values ascribed to non-financial suffering and losses caused by a car accident, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, disfigurement, or loss of consortium, which is the loss of a relationship with your spouse or family members.

Compensation in personal injury and property damage lawsuits in Texas is governed by the comparative negligence rule. Under comparative negligence, a jury will decide the degree of fault shared by both parties in producing the accident. You would be awarded $700 if you submitted a $1,000 claim and it was ruled that you were 30% responsible for the accident. If you are more than 50% at blame, though, you will not be unable to recover.

Texas law requires personal injury victims to file a claim within two years after the accident or discovery of a hidden injury. If you file a claim after the two-year time restriction has gone, you will not be allowed to seek compensation.

To learn more about the compensation you may be entitled to following a car accident, contact our Grand Prairie auto accident attorneys for knowledgeable and experienced legal assistance.

WHY YOUR CASE SHOULD BE HANDLED BY A DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Even if the insurance company’s payment appears to be acceptable, the accident victim should consult with an experienced attorney to ensure that they are being adequately rewarded. Some expenses, such as future medical care, will not be included in the insurance company’s settlement offer. Because the insurance company is sometimes unaware of the degree of the victim’s ailments, how can they make a fair offer that covers past, present, and future medical bills as well as lost wages?

This is why having legal representation is so important. Only an experienced attorney who understands how to negotiate with insurance companies can ensure that you get the most money possible.

COMPENSATION YOU MAY BE OWED IN A DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT

The victim will have additional proof for their civil case after the motorist has been charged with driving under the influence, which will help them collect the compensation they deserve. Non-economic damages can be reliably quantified with the help of an experienced attorney but determining the amount of compensation deserved can be difficult.

In this form of action, the victim must account for everything they have lost as a result of the drunk driver’s recklessness. The victim’s injuries and emotional suffering may have been caused by the driver’s conduct.

A Grand Prairie DWI accident lawyer will attempt to get the victim the most money for their injury claim as feasible. They will also assist the victim in evaluating all the ways that their injuries have affected their finances and quality of life, including:

  • Medical bills, both past and future
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Earnings lost, past and future
  • Physical impairment
  • Vehicle replacement or repair
  • Pain and suffering
  • Expenses for travel
  • Any other sort of damages caused by the accident

DRAM SHOP LIABILITY IN DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENTS

Overserving alcohol is deemed irresponsible. Under Texas’ Dram Shop Laws, an establishment who overserves alcohol to a minor or a person who is clearly intoxicated can be held liable for significant injuries or wrongful deaths caused by drunk driving. A business is expected to take reasonable precautions and not serve someone who is already inebriated.

Questions a Drunk Driving Accident Attorney Will Assist You With:

  • What was the defendant’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC)?
  • Before the collision, where was the defendant drinking?
  • Was the alcohol provided by a third-party, such as a bar or a social host?
  • Is there a medical issue that could affect the defendant’s judgment when mixed with alcohol use?
  • Is the defendant an alcoholic with a low tolerance for alcohol?
  • Is there evidence that the defendant drove to or from the drinking establishment?

HOW AN ATTORNEY PROVES NEGLIGENCE IN A GRAND PRAIRIE DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT

The DUI conviction of the driver will be one of the greatest pieces of evidence for a person who has been hit by a drunk driver and files a claim. While the criminal trial will frequently take precedence in the eyes of the court, the victim will still have the opportunity to make a complaint. The police record, documents from the drunk driver’s criminal trial, documents relating medical treatment, lost income, and other critical material will all be known to an attorney. It is the attorney’s obligation to show that the driver was at fault. The plaintiff can expect to get a greater payment if he or she has this type of essential evidence.

Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.

Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
