Our Laredo car accident attorneys have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies that will evaluate and decide on an amount to offer for settlement of your claim.

Is Texas a No-Fault State for Car Accidents?

No, in the event of a car accident Texas follows a “at-fault” rule to determine who is liable. This means that the driver who is responsible for causing the accident that led to your injuries is also responsible for paying the damages due you through an insurance carrier.

While this law is straightforward for accidents where only one driver is at fault, it’s true that many if not most accidents can find both parties at fault in some way. An example of “fault” that is easy to overlook would be driving slightly about the speed limit or failing to put on a turn signal. In these cases, an injured driver can still recover compensation through Texas’ "modified comparative negligence" rule.

What Is The Modified Comparative Negligence Rule?

A modified comparative negligence rule means that an injured party who is partially responsible for an accident can still file a claim as long as they are no more than 50% at fault for causing an accident.

However, in this scenario the percentage of responsibility they are found to bear will be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault for the accident, the total compensation awarded to you will also be reduced by 10%.

What Compensation Is Available After a Car Accident Injury?

Steps to Take after a Car Accident

Typically, drivers find themselves in a dazed state of confusion after colliding with another vehicle. However, it is important to remain as composed as possible at the accident scene and remember to take certain steps that could be crucial to obtaining maximum compensation.

Following a car accident, you should:

  • Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries
  • Call the police to report the accident
  • Ask any witnesses for their contact information
  • Collect license plate numbers and insurance and registration info from other drivers
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and all vehicles involved in the crash
  • Contact our lawyers prior to speaking to any insurance companies

Something that many people fail to take into consideration after a car crash is their interaction on social media. Be careful not to post anything regarding the accident until your claim is settled. Insurance companies can use the information they find on social media platforms as evidence against you to reduce their liability and the money they owe.
