The Process of a Texas Car Accident Lawsuit
A Texas car accident case basically breaks down into three stages: Investigation, litigation and collection. You can rely on our seasoned and dedicated attorneys to carefully navigate your case through all three stages and to keep you informed at every step along the way.
First, we’ll meet with you and obtain as much information as possible about your car wreck. We’ll want to know what you saw and heard when the crash occurred, and whether there were eyewitnesses or photos taken at the accident site. Then, we will dive into our investigation.
As we research your case, we will work with experts who can help us to determine what caused your accident and the extent of your damages. Accident reconstruction experts, for instance, can recreate what occurred by analyzing skid marks, vehicle damage and other evidence. An engineer can examine a “black box” and analyze other mechanical clues. A medical expert can examine you and your medical records and determine the nature of your bodily injury and the care you will require moving forward.
If our initial discussion with the at-fault driver’s insurance company fails to yield a positive result, we will file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf. Taking this action will allow us to engage in what is called discovery. This means we can file legal requests to ask questions about your case, and we can seek certain documents and other information.
Our goal will be to collect as much evidence as possible so that we will have a position of strength when we return to negotiations with the insurance defense attorneys. Often, we can employ technology to develop a compelling presentation of your case, such as a computer illustration of the accident or graphic presentation of medical evidence.
If negotiations fail to produce a full and fair settlement, we will take your case to trial. All of the work we have done up to this point in your case will have us well-prepared to tell your story to a judge or jury. If a verdict does not go in your favor, or if the insurance company challenges the judgment, we will continue to represent you in any appeals.
Once your case is resolved, The Bob Richardson Law Firm will continue to protect your rights and interests. We will make sure that you and your family collect all funds that you need and deserve. In some cases, this may require taking additional legal action.
In the end, if our hard work and dedication has resulted in making life a little better for you and your family after your car accident, then we will have done our job.
