After a car accident, your #1 priority should be to recover and receive the best possible medical care. For that to happen, you’ll need financial resources, which unfortunately insurance companies may refuse (or only partially cover). These companies often work to defend the interests of their investors, not victims who may be left unprotected by gaps in coverage.

To ensure that justice is served and you can heal without worrying about money, you’ll require the help of a car accident legal team with a proven track record of winning car accident cases, either through successful negotiations with insurers or at court.

Why do you need to hire car accident lawyers in Houston?

Many people ask: Do I need to hire a Houston car accident lawyer? Can’t I sue on my own?

Though nothing prevents a victim from suing on their own, it’s almost impossible for them to win a car accident case without the help of car crash lawyers in Houston, especially if they were injured due to someone else’s fault.

Why is this the case? Here are the five main reasons:

Demonstrating that the accident was the fault of the other driver involves gathering evidence to prove it beyond any doubt. Often getting this evidence requires the help of expert witnesses from different areas who are dedicated to:

  • Investigating the accident scene
  • Identifying eyewitnesses and collecting their testimonies
  • Analyzing the vehicles involved for defects in manufacturing, design or maintenance
  • Tracing and acquiring videographic material recording the circumstances of the accident
  • Conducting a thorough background check of the at-fault driver

Personal injury and car accident claims represent highly specialized legal areas that require detailed and specific knowledge to be resolved correctly. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for law firms with no experience in these types of claims to end up losing compensation cases for their clients.

On the other hand, our skilled car accident attorneys at Dinh Law Firm, P.C. know how to win personal injury cases and have mastered every detail of the complex legislation that sets the standards for defining fault in car crash cases. Among the required specialized legal knowledge, there are two main areas:

  • Specialization in the complex comparative negligence law in Texas. The main feature of this law is that it assigns a percentage of liability to each party. Insurance companies tend to use this law to pay as little as possible to victims.
  • Specialization in correctly calculating damages, both for expenses related to physical injuries (including medications, hospital bills, intensive care, ambulance rides and rehabilitation devices) and injuries associated with the victim’s pain and suffering (including psychological and emotional injuries such as anguish, stress or depression). Both these areas require great technical and legal calculation skills. It’s also important that the team of personal injury lawyers is able to get reimbursement for all the victim’s lost wages now and in the future if they’re unable to work due to their injuries.

There are two possibilities for reaching a settlement that benefits the victim of a car accident in Houston:

  • Through successful negotiation with the insurance company, which may take a few weeks.
  • If the insurance company is unwilling to reach a beneficial settlement for the victim during negotiations, the case must be won in court through a trial that can sometimes take several months.

After suffering a car accident, victims want justice and the ability to recover in peace. For this reason, it’s unlikely they have the energy or willingness to handle a complicated, tedious and highly specialized legal claim that requires mastery of legal areas that they probably aren’t familiar with.

However, you shouldn’t leave your desire for justice and the defense of your best interests in the hands of insurance companies. Our Houston car crash lawyers at Dinh Law Firm, P.C. are here to help victims with both needs: to seek justice and get compensation benefits that allow you to heal in a peaceful environment beside your family and with the best possible medical care.

Most people have the idea that hiring a law firm is expensive. However, when it comes to personal injury cases, victims who hire our experienced car accident attorneys at Dinh Law Firm, P.C. will never pay us out of pocket.

We’ll handle your case with our resources and, only if we win, do we keep only a small percentage of the compensation you obtain. In other words: if you don’t get compensation, we assume the loss of what we’ve spent and you never pay us out of pocket. This way of working is known in the legal field as “contingency fees.”

What are the main causes of car accidents in Houston?

What are the most common types of injuries sustained by car accident victims?

The injuries sustained by victims of car accidents vary widely in type and severity, depending on the specifics of the accident (such as the speed and angle at which the impact occurred or whether a truck or large vehicle was involved).

Here are the five most common types of injuries sustained by car accident victims:

  1. Neck injuries (mainly whiplash)
  2. Bone and knee fractures
  3. Brain injuries, whether mild (such as contusions) or severe (such as hemorrhages or concussions)
  4. Internal organ injuries
  5. Back injuries (especially when affecting the spine or spinal cord, causing different types of paralysis)

What should you do after getting into a car accident in Houston?

Many car accident victims wonder if there’s anything they can do to make their compensation claim more successful.

The answer is yes. However, if you were the victim of a car accident, the first thing you should do is seek immediate medical attention and heed all medical personnel’s instructions. (This includes admitting yourself to a hospital, if required.)

Once you have received medical attention, there are some actions you can take to facilitate your claim. (In case your injuries don’t permit it, these actions can be taken by a family member or loved one.)

  1. Call our experienced Houston car accident lawyers at Dinh Law Firm, P.C. at (281) 879-0447.
  2. Notify the police about the accident and get a copy of the police report that the officers fill out.
  3. Gather the names and phone numbers of those involved, as well as possible eyewitnesses.
  4. Take photographs of your injuries and damage to the vehicles.
  5. Don’t talk to an insurance company agent (in particular, don’t sign or declare anything).
