Car Accidents

Dallas Car Wreck Attorney Helping Victims Recover Financial Compensation

Motor vehicle collisions happen every day in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. People who are involved in these accidents can suffer multiple types of serious injuries, as well as significant damage to their vehicles or other property. While victims may be able to receive financial compensation that addresses their damages, they can sometimes struggle to do so as they deal with insurance companies that deny claims or attempt to minimize the amount that is paid out. To ensure that they will be able to fully address the ways they have been affected by an accident, victims can work with a personal injury attorney who can help them receive the settlement they deserve.

Legal Help With Multiple Types of Car Wrecks

Following a car crash, we can investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision and establish fault, ensuring that our clients have the evidence needed to pursue a claim and recover compensation. We work to ensure that victims receive restitution for their past and future medical expenses, lost wages while recovering from their injuries, impairments to their future earning potential, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. We assist with:

  • DWI accidents – People who choose to drive while they are intoxicated by alcohol or drugs do not just put themselves at risk, but they endanger everyone else who uses the roads. We work to ensure that these drivers are held responsible for the harm they have caused to others, including pursuing punitive damages where appropriate to punish a person for their wrongdoing in addition to requiring them to repay victims for their economic and non-economic damages.
  • Distracted driving accidents – There are many activities that may lead drivers to take their attention away from the road, and these can result in accidents that cause serious injuries to others. We work to gather evidence showing that a collision was caused by distractions and ensure that these drivers are held liable for the damages suffered by victims.
  • Uber/Lyft accidents – As more and more drivers work for ride-sharing companies and offer transportation for passengers, people may suffer serious injuries in accidents involving these drivers. We help victims understand how they can receive compensation for these types of accidents, including taking legal action against companies that attempt to avoid liability by classifying drivers as independent contractors rather than employees.

Immediately after a car accident, you must stop, check on the status of the other driver or anyone else who was involved, and exchange contact and insurance information. If you can, move damaged vehicles off the road and be sure to wait in a safe spot. Seek immediate medical care if you or anyone else is injured – call 911 if an ambulance may be needed. It is also a good idea to report the accident to the police and have an officer come to the scene to write an accident report. As soon as you are able to, contact an attorney.

How these cases will be handled will depend on a number of circumstances, such as whose fault the accident was. If a third party was at fault, you and the friend or family member who was driving your car may both have a claim against the at-fault driver. If the person you let drive your car was at fault, your insurance may be liable for the injuries or damages suffered by others.

Generally, in Texas, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver or other liable parties. However, the statute of limitations may be longer or shorter in some cases. For example, if you were a minor when the car accident happened, and no adult filed a lawsuit on your behalf, the two-year period begins when you turn 18 years old.

Most of the time, a personal injury attorney will not require any up-front payments, and they will receive a percentage of the damages recovered if a claim is successful. At Clark Law Group, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis, and you will not be required to pay us anything unless we collect compensation on your behalf through a settlement or verdict.

It depends. In fairly simple cases involving clear fault and relatively minor injuries, you may be able to receive a settlement in as little as two months. However, more complex cases can take several years. Your case is likely to take longer if there is a genuine dispute regarding who was at fault or if your injuries were catastrophic in nature.

You may need the investigative skill of an attorney to do this. If you are being accused of causing a car accident, and you believe you were not at fault, it is important to act quickly. An attorney will want to go to the scene of the accident as soon as possible to preserve any physical evidence suggesting that you were not responsible. Statements from witnesses can also go a long way. Finally, your attorney will likely seek out footage from any cameras that may have been in the area.

Car insurance companies are in the business of minimizing the amount paid out through claims. Only an experienced attorney should tell you what your claim is likely worth. An attorney will also know exactly what types of evidence need to be gathered and how to interpret the evidence available. Additionally, you need a professional fighting for you to make a full financial recovery so that you can remain focused on your physical recovery. An attorney can fill that role.
