Getting into a Texas car accident can be an overwhelming and stressful experience. Your injuries may impact all aspects of your life, leaving you with medical bills and potentially out of work. Because Texas is a fault state, you can seek compensation for these losses from the at-fault party. However, if the driver is underinsured or not insured at all, this process can be much more complicated.
Fortunately, our Mott & Moffett lawyers are prepared to handle all aspects of your claim, so you don’t have to fight for your rights alone. We use our ample experience and vast legal knowledge to negotiate with insurance companies and fiercely advocate for the compensation you deserve regardless of the liable party’s insurance policies or lack thereof. Our compassionate lawyers give you the best chance of achieving a fair settlement by developing personalized solutions, providing consistent communication, and guiding you every step of the way.
Because Texas is an at-fault state and liable parties are responsible for compensating injuries and damages, drivers must carry the state’s minimum insurance coverage. This coverage involves three categories, each with different limits, including the following:
While Texas law requires all drivers to carry this coverage, many drivers do not fulfill this responsibility, leaving victims with no compensation for their injuries. In other cases, these minimum amounts do not cover all the damages the victim faces. Regardless of the circumstances, our dedicated lawyers fight tirelessly to secure a just settlement.
If you suffered injuries in a car accident due to an underinsured or uninsured driver’s negligence, you may still collect damages for your losses. The first way to do this is by adding underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage to your insurance policy. Alternatively, our driven attorneys can help you sue the at-fault driver for the damages their insurance does not cover. Based on the severity of your injuries and other details of your claim, you may recover the following damages:
When receiving damages, it’s important to note that Texas uses a modified comparative negligence system. This means each party involved in the accident receives a percentage of fault, which gets deducted from their respective damages. For instance, if you are 20% at fault, your compensation gets reduced by 20%. Parties over 51% at fault cannot collect any damages.
While this system benefits those partially at fault for an accident, insurance companies often use it to undermine your claim and lowball you. Our knowledgeable lawyers understand these tactics and how to negotiate with adjusters to ensure they treat you fairly.
After a Spring car accident, you may attempt to handle your claim on your own. However, when an uninsured or underinsured driver is at fault, the process can be much more complicated.
