You may be able to secure a financial recovery

If another driver acted in a careless, reckless, or intentional way, and this led to your collision, you may be able to recover damages based on what happened. This may be possible by gathering evidence to prove what happened and filing:

  • A claim based on that driver’s auto liability insurance coverage; or
  • A personal injury lawsuit in a Collin County, TX civil court

The evidence in these cases includes documentation of the damages you suffered because of the accident. Recoverable damages could include:

Expenses and losses to date

The economic expenses and losses of a collision depend on the circumstances of what happened and the necessary treatment and repairs. 

Examples include:

  • Medical treatment and related costs
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Rental car costs
  • Parking at doctors’ appointments
  • Out-of-pocket expenses 
  • Lost wages

Future expenses and losses

You can also pursue financial recovery for your future economic impacts that stem from your accident and injuries. We will help you determine what a financial recovery could look like in this category. This could include:

  • Any further treatment for your injuries
  • Support and care costs
  • Services you cannot perform that you did previously
  • Diminished capacity to work

Intangible damages

Intangible damages are another type of recovery you may be able to seek. These are the non-economic losses you experienced. Examples include:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

Wrongful death damages for surviving spouses, parents, and children

When a person passes away because of their injuries, their surviving family members may be able to secure a recovery based on their own losses. These are known as wrongful death damages.

Texas has fault-based car accident and insurance laws 

When it comes to auto accident insurance claims, Texas operates on a fault-based system. According to the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), Texans must be able to show they can pay for accidents they cause, and victims can pursue financial recovery after these collisions. 

It is because of these rules that D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ can often seek a financial recovery for our clients via an insurance claim and settlement or civil lawsuit. We know how this process works and how to navigate the steps for collision victims.

Out-of-court settlements are often possible, but we will go to trial if needed to seek an appropriate recovery for our clients. Reasons these cases may go to trial include:

  • The at-fault driver or their insurer refuses to accept responsibility
  • The driver does not have insurance coverage
  • The insurance company claims our client shares liability
  • The insurer will not negotiate in good faith for some other reason

Deadlines apply to take legal action

In most cases, Texas law only gives accident victims up to two years to prepare and file the paperwork to begin a lawsuit in a personal injury case such as a traffic accident. Under some circumstances, you could have less time, as well.

We must take several steps before we can file the paperwork and begin a lawsuit, including investigating the accident and gathering evidence to support the case. We must not miss the applicable deadlines, so it is crucial that we learn about your case in time.
