Every day, car accidents forever alter and even claim the lives of innocent victims on the roads. More than 3,500 were lost in Texas last year alone.
For over 25 years, we at the Reyes law team have been doing our part to bring some measure of justice to the victims and their families. Our team of attorneys practicing in auto accident law for Richardson, employ the assistance of top investigators, engineers, and medical experts to build a case intended to secure the greatest compensation available.
The Richardson lawyers at Reyes Browne Reilley have the skill and experience that it takes to overcome even the strongest defense strategy and win these cases in court. We know there is more to your experience than mere statistics, and we believe that every case is entitled to treatment as individual as each client.
The law affords protections to motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians who are injured by negligent drivers. Any person who suffers personal injuries or property damage is eligible to bring a civil claim against an at-fault driver in Texas, even if they are partially responsible for the accident.
Texas, along with 32 other states, has adopted comparative negligence laws that allows a plaintiff to bring a civil claim against and collect damages from an at-fault driver, even if they are partially responsible for the accident. This is why investigations are necessary to preserve evidence, identify liable parties, and build a persuasive claim for compensation.
At Reyes Browne Reilley, we send out investigators to the accident scene right away. We know that conditions can change quickly – skid marks may vanish, road hazards are removed, and other crucial markers can be lost. Our legal staff will track down witnesses to the accident and enlist the knowledge of accident reconstructionists, biomedical engineers and industry experts to prove what truly happened.
One of the most important factors in determining the value of a car accident lawsuit is the nature and extent of the plaintiff’s injuries. Injuries that have been diagnosed and documented by medical professionals, using MRIs, X-rays, or other diagnostic tools are more likely to be compensated adequately. Accidents that cause life-threatening disabilities, or somehow impair the victim’s cognitive or motor functioning will likely result in larger settlements to account for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, long-term suffering and loss of quality of life. Other critical factors that impact the value of your verdict or settlement:
- Strong evidence demonstrating the other driver’s fault
- All medical records and doctors’ opinions
- If you sustained enduring disfigurement or scarring
- Credibility and consistency of your statements
- Supporting witness testimony
Participating – or, in some cases, refraining– from activities that are consistent with your car accident injuries is another critical component. Be aware of what you’re posting on social media sites, as any statement or photo that casts doubt on your injury claims can debilitate your case.
