If you sustained injuries in a car accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to financial recovery for damages like medical bills and lost pay. A car accident lawyer serving Madisonville with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC may be able to help you pursue recovery from the responsible party.
Due to statutes of limitations that dictate the amount of time you have to take legal action, your case may benefit from finding legal representation sooner than later. If you delay filing an insurance claim, the liable party may question the validity of your injuries and damages. Texas generally has a two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit.
We may be able to help you seek damages while you focus on feeling better. For a free case evaluation, call (713) 850-8600.

Examining the Details May Help You Obtain Financial Recovery
Sometimes, a defendant who caused your injuries may step up and admit liability. If this does not happen, you have a right to seek legal representation to help investigate your case and obtain evidence of liability.
A lawyer from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC may review the circumstances of your accident, including:
- Police and accident reports.
- Witness statements.
- Photos and/or videos of the accident scene including your damaged vehicle, road debris, bent guard rails, and skid marks.
- Medical report of your accident-related injuries.
- Relevant traffic laws.
- The defendant’s driving history.
- Drug or alcohol test results.
We may also ask you to describe what you can remember about what happened before, during, and after the accident.
Financial Recovery for Car Accident Cases
Financial recovery may extend to expenses and losses directly related to your injuries. You may be entitled to financial recovery for damages such as:
- Medical expenses (past and expected)
- Lost wages
- Lifecare costs
- Reduced earning ability because of injury
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium or companionship
- Mental anguish
- Property damage such as car repairs
- Disability (temporary or permanent)
If you lost a family member in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial recovery with a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. This would account for damages like final expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
If you suffered injuries in a car accident or lost a family member in a collision, please reach out to D. Miller & Associates, PLLC for a free case evaluation at (713) 850-8600.
Identifying all Liable Parties
In some car accidents, more than one liable party may be responsible. A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC may identify all involved parties who may have played a role in the accident. This step may occur if you were in a collision with a commercial or business vehicle.
Liability in a car accident is divided into direct liability and vicarious liability. Direct liability involves negligence from the person or persons directly responsible for your injuries. Vicarious liability may involve an employer who shares responsibility for your injuries if an employee caused them while driving a commercial vehicle.
Get Medical Care After Any Car Accident
Some car accident injuries are so severe that victims are immediately transported to the nearest emergency room. If your injuries were not life-threatening, you should still get medical attention as soon as possible. Certain injuries, such as whiplash, may not present symptoms until several hours after the accident. This can worsen your condition or prolong your recovery.
