If you have been hurt in a Edinburg, TX, car accident, you deserve to know your legal options. Can you file a lawsuit years after the accident? Is it possible to recover damages for expenses and losses even if you played a part in the accident?
D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can answer these questions for you. Since 2002, we have helped many of our Edinburg neighbors hurt in car accidents.
First, you should see a doctor. Even if you feel fine, injuries to the neck and back may not appear immediately after the accident. Only a medical professional can accurately assess your condition. It is important to keep copies of your medical bills as proof of accident-related expenses.
We will seek potential compensation for your losses while you focus on feeling better. For a free case review, please call (713) 850-8600.

We Negotiate with Insurance Companies on Your Behalf
If you are recovering from injuries at home or in the hospital, the last thing you need is the stress of dealing with an insurance company. It might be tempting to settle quickly, but you could have long-term health issues and expenses that should be considered. We also recommend that you do not post details about your accident on social media as this could affect your case.
The team at D. Miller & Associates, PLLC have your best interests in mind. We do not charge attorney fees unless we successfully recover damages. Our goal is to seek compensation if available so that you can be made whole. We accomplish this with a process that has worked for many of our clients. The steps we take to help you include:
- We compile copies of all expenses, bills, and losses from the accident.
- We gather witness statements and police records, and if applicable, photographs of the accident scene.
- We review relevant state and federal traffic laws.
- We present all evidence of your physical, mental, and financial hardship to the insurance company.
- We can take your case to court if we cannot reach a fair settlement with the insurance company.
We Can Help if You Lost a Loved One in the Accident
If a loved one died because of the crash, you could be eligible for a claim. This type of compensation will never replace a family member, but it could ease your financial struggles. A survivorship claim typically covers expenses such as:
- Funeral or burial costs
- Loss of income, benefits, and other financial support
- Loss of companionship
- Medical bills of the decedent
- Pain and suffering from the time of the accident until death
Texas Has a 51 Percent Comparative Negligence Law
You might think that you cannot seek compensation if you are partially to blame for the accident. You can, depending on what role you played in the collision. Texas has a comparative negligence law that allows you to seek damages if you were less than 51 percent at-fault.
You should be aware that the amount of damages you look for could be reduced by the same percentage of your fault. For example, if you pursue $100,000 in expenses and losses and are found to be 20 percent at-fault, your maximum compensation could be $80,000. The law is complex, but an Edinburg car accident lawyer can best advise you. For a free consultation, please call (713) 850-8600.
