Why Is Having a Texas Car Accident Lawyer Important?

The team of attorneys and legal staff at Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C. offers their deepest sympathy to the accident victims and their families. 

While having a car accident lawyer is not required, we recommended hiring one after an accident. Car accident claims can be complicated. And insurance companies have powerful law firms on their side who try to undermine your case’s credibility.

Our attorneys won’t let big insurance companies have the last word. We examine the facts of your case and develop a strong legal strategy. 

Even if you think your injuries are minimal, you should still contact our office and speak to one of our attorneys. The initial consultation is free, so you have nothing to lose.

What Are the Common Causes of Car Accidents?

Common causes of car accidents include the following:

  • Speeding,
  • Distracted driving,
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
  • Reckless driving,
  • Improper use of turn signals,
  • Running red lights,
  • Road rage,
  • Tailgating, and
  • Failure to abide by other traffic laws.

Other causes of car accidents include construction, defective roads, and poor weather conditions.

How Long Do You Have to File a Car Accident Claim?

Every claim has a statute of limitations, which is a timeline where an injured party can bring a claim against the party who wronged them. Car accident claims fall under the personal injury umbrella.

In Texas, you have two years to file a personal injury claim. The clock starts to tick on the day the action occurs, which in this case is the date of the car accident. If you fail to file your claim by this deadline, you are generally precluded from financial recovery.

Don’t delay in contacting a seasoned car accident attorney. We don’t want you to lose your opportunity to receive compensation from the negligent party.
