After a car accident, your life becomes more complicated. If the accident was minor with little damage or injuries, you may be able to file an insurance claim and settle it quickly. You get estimates for repairing your car, send them to the insurance company, and get a check back. It may inconvenience you for a while, but it only interrupts your life for a short time.
If the accident caused major damage, you suffered serious injuries, the driver’s insurance policy limit is too low to cover your losses, or there is a disagreement about who caused the accident, then there is no quick and easy way to recover compensation. Just thinking about putting a dollar value on what happened to you and dealing with the insurance company alone can be overwhelming.
If you are facing this type of situation, a car accident lawyer in Sugar Land can help. The personal injury attorneys at D. Miller & Associates, PLLC, have experience handling difficult car accident cases. We can conduct a thorough investigation into your crash to determine fault, calculate your damages, and pursue fair compensation that covers your current and future needs.
We offer free claim evaluations to car crash victims in Texas. Contact us today at 713-850-8600 to get started.
We Can Handle Your Car Accident Claim While You Recover.
Our goal is to successfully navigate the claims process to get you the compensation you deserve, while you focus on healing from your crash-related injuries. Once we take your case, we will:
- Take care of all the legal steps;
- Explain how the legal system works;
- Handle all of the paperwork;
- Make sure you meet deadlines;
- Use investigators to help prove your case;
- Calculate the value of your claim;
- Take care of communication with the insurance company adjusters and lawyers;
- Fight for the highest settlement possible in your case; and
- Prepare to take your case to court or use another legal process, if necessary.
Do not wait to contact us. We need to collect valuable evidence for your claim, such as statements from eyewitnesses, the police report, and photos of the accident scene and vehicles as quickly as possible. As time passes, details start to fade, and it gets harder to obtain the proof we need to recover compensation on your behalf.
The state’s statute of limitations also limits the time you have to take action after a car crash. In Texas, the limit is two years after the accident. The sooner you call us, the better.
We Will Pursue a Fair Settlement for Your Claim.
After a car crash, you may be facing significant losses. Aside from the costs of repairing or replacing your vehicle, you will likely have significant medical expenses as you seek treatment for your injuries. Coupled with the fact that you may have to miss work while you recover, you may not have a clear way to pay the costs associated with your car accident.
That is where our lawyers can help. After we evaluate the details of your case, we will calculate the value of your damages. Certain details will increase your claim’s worth, such as the identity of the at-fault party, how the crash occurred, and the severity of your injuries. If you suffered a permanent injury that requires long-term care, like a brain injury, we will request a settlement that covers your future care costs, too.
You may be able to recover your costs for the following:
- Medical bills;
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation;
- Long-term care;
- Car repair or replacement costs;
- Lost wages;
- Reduced earning capacity, if you cannot work in the same capacity you did before the crash;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Mental anguish; and
- Wrongful death, if a loved one died in the accident.
To understand the value of your claim, we will look at your actual bills for medical costs and add up the total income you lost if you missed work because of your injuries. We will also get cost estimates to repair or replace your car, and tally any transportation costs you paid while you were without a vehicle.
Then, we will see what your doctor says about the future medical care you will need and when you should recover. If you will need someone to care for you, we include those costs as well. We will estimate how long you will be unable to work. If you will not be able to return to work, we will determine how much income you will lose because of it.
We will also estimate the value of intangible damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish. We will use our experience to determine how your injuries will affect your quality of life going forward.
We Can Deal With the Insurance Company for You.
Once we have a good idea of what your injuries and damages will cost you, we will notify the at-fault party’s insurance company of your demand. We give them two weeks to respond. The insurer’s first offer is usually less than we demanded, but we will continue to negotiate until the company agrees to give you a fair settlement. Many times, we are successful in getting the amount our client deserves during this process.
If the offer remains too low, we will go over all the facts of your case and talk to you about filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our trial lawyers will decide the best way to present your case in court.
