Auto accidents can range from a simple “fender bender” to substantial property damage and serious personal injury. While car accidents make up a significant portion of Texas personal injury and wrongful death claims, they cannot be considered routine. It is vital that victims of auto accidents act promptly with an experienced attorney to determine the appropriate claim. Each accident must be investigated individually to establish case specifics. The Law Office of Avery McDaniel has represented clients in thousands of auto accidents for over 14 years. Our firm has significant knowledge and experience in handling auto accident claims, in evaluating our client’s cases, dealing with insurance companies and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit and taking the case to trial. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, call the Law Office of Avery McDaniel at (817) 810-9500 for a free consultation.
We will thoroughly investigate and assess your auto accident, the medical evidence used to evaluate physical injuries, and the economic and accounting principles required to evaluate your losses. Our firm’s experienced and aggressive team of lawyers and legal staff is committed to helping you achieve fair compensation for your claim (whether in pre-suit settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration or trial) and to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
The following are common causes of auto accidents:
In Texas, if the driver that causes an accident is found negligent, the injured individual may be entitled to property damage repair, medical expenses, and some measure of pain and suffering, mental anguish, disability, permanent disfigurement, and wrongful death, and other types of general damage. Texas also allows for recovery of “special damages.” “Special damages” include: lost wages/income depending on the severity of the injury, present and future medical bills, loss of earnings potential and other out-of-pocket expenses. In some cases, the driver that causes an accident may be liable to an auto accident victim for punitive damages. Please be aware that insurance adjusters and insurers may try to take advantage of auto accident victims who are not represented by an attorney experienced in Texas auto accident law.
Auto accidents involving alcohol (reckless driving) injure more than one million people each year and every half-hour someone in the U.S. dies in an alcohol-related accident or crash. The attorneys in the Law Office of Avery McDaniel know the laws regarding legal responsibility and can help you identify who might be held responsible for your injuries. In addition to the intoxicated driver being held liable for the personal injuries caused, a bar or night club (or other businesses) can also be liable for damages if they served an obviously intoxicated guest, who then drove and caused the accident and your injuries. The fact that the person who served the intoxicated driver alcohol may be held liable does not relieve the intoxicated driver of liability. These cases require an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the issues and claims related to your claim. You should contact the Law Office of Avery McDaniel at (817) 810-9500 to discuss your particular case.
Some auto accidents are the result of factors unrelated to the conduct of a particular driver. Auto accidents can result from a product defect such as defective automobiles and/or parts. In these instances, an automobile manufacturer or a supplier can be held responsible for injuries. If a manufacturer or a product creates a defective product by design, manufacturing, or labeling, the manufacturer is liable for any injuries that product causes. These cases require an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the product liability laws for your claim. You should contact the Law Office of Avery McDaniel at (817) 810-9500 to discuss your particular case.
Other auto accidents might be the result of highway or roadway defects. Poorly maintained roads, malfunctioning traffic control signals, a poorly placed tree, damaged utility pole can cause serious or even deadly accidents that might be the responsibility of road construction companies or even the State. These cases require an experienced attorney who understands the special rules about bringing claims and lawsuits against governmental entities. You should contact the Law Office of Avery McDaniel at (817) 810-9500 to discuss your particular case.
If the driver that causes an accident has no insurance or is underinsured, you may be able to pursue a claim with your own insurance company. Although the insurance company may have an obligation to pay benefits, the process is often difficult, and claims are frequently underpaid, delayed, or wrongfully denied. You should contact the Law Office of Avery McDaniel at (817) 810-9500 to discuss the specifics of your case.
