Texas Car Accident Laws
Texas is considered a “fault” car insurance state, which means if you are injured in a collision, you can sue the at-fault driver or collect damages from their insurance company. The Texas Department of Insurance said drivers are responsible for covering any damage they cause in a car accident, rather than having their insurer pay—like in “no-fault” states—no matter who caused the accident.
Texas is also a “modified comparative fault” state, which means your total damages will be reduced by your percentage/share of fault. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for the collision but finds you to be 30 percent at fault, you will only recover 70 percent—or $70,000—of the total $100,000. Keep in mind, if you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you will recover nothing.
Why You Can’t Trust Insurers
Insurance companies are renowned for attempting to try to avoid any settlement if they possibly can. Even if they cannot avoid making a payment, you can be sure that they will keep it to the bare minimum, and they very often take as long as possible before they pay out. It makes total sense from their point of view, since the less they have to pay out, the more profit they make at the end of the year.
You need our knowledgeable Dallas car accident lawyers to fight the insurance company on your behalf. If you try to do it yourself, they will make every excuse under the sun to avoid paying you, or if they do eventually pay you, it will be the minimum amount that they can get away with.
