The Importance of Hiring a Dallas Car Wreck Lawyer to Represent Your Claim

Nearly 32,000 crashes were reported in Dallas in 2018. While many of these collisions are minor, at least 5,000 resulted in injuries and 194 resulted in deaths. When an injury or death does occur, it is essential that you hire a lawyer who is capable of maximizing your recovery.

It is important to remember that an insurance company’s number one goal is to make money. This means that when you speak to an insurance adjuster, they do not necessarily have your best interests in mind. Instead, they are seeking to limit the insurer’s liability and limit your recovery, thereby saving the company money.

When you hire Thomas J. Henry Law, you are taking the first steps towards protecting your rights and securing compensation that can help you recover from your injuries.

The Most Dangerous Roads in Dallas, Texas

While car accidents can occur anywhere, there are some roadways in Dallas that are more dangerous than others. These areas typically see heavy traffic and congestion which may be further compounded by poor visibility, damaged roads, and reckless drivers.

Among the most dangerous roads in Dallas are:

  • Central Expressway from LBJ Freeway to Interstate 30
  • State Highway from Interstate 30 to Interstate 20
  • Interstate 35 East from Garden Ridge Boulevard and State Highway 121
  • LBJ Freeway from Interstate East to Dallas North Tollway
  • Interstate 35 West from Loop 820 to Interstate 30
  • LBJ Freeway from Dallas North Tollway to Central Expressway
  • Interstate 30 from Interstate 35 West to Loop 820
  • East Loop 820 from Interstate 30 to Interstate 20
  • Woodall Rodgers Freeway from Stemmons to Central Expressway
  • Interstate 45 from Interstate 30 to Lamar

When to Hire a Dallas Car Crash Lawyer

When you are involved in a car accident, it is best to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. A good lawyer will help you understand your legal options and can help with the confusion, stress, and uncertainty that can follow a crash. They can also help you avoid potential pitfalls that can damage your claim.

If you did not contact an attorney after your crash, do not stress. There may still be time. Texas law (Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.003(a)) sets the statute of limitation for most personal injury claims at two years. This means you can contact an auto accident attorney in Dallas, TX weeks or months after a crash and still have a viable personal injury claim.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Dallas

Car accidents have a variety of causes, and a single crash may have multiple contributing factors. At Thomas J. Henry Law, our Dallas car accident lawyers will investigate all facets of your car accident to determine exactly how the crash occurred and how best to secure maximum compensation for your damages.

Among the most common causes of car accidents in Dallas are:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Driver inattention
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to adhere to traffic signals and signs
  • Unsafe turns
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Mechanical defects

Common Car Accident Injuries

It is important to remember that your injuries may not be immediately evident. In fact, some injuries may not be symptomatic for days, weeks, or even months after an accident, while others that initially seem minor may worsen over time. As such, you should always seek medical attention after a crash, even if you do not feel immediate pain.

Among the most common injuries suffered in car crashes are:

  • Facial injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Wrongful death

Damages You Can Seek in a Dallas Car Accident Lawsuit

Car accidents can result in a multitude of damages, including damages that extend beyond your physical injuries and medical bills. In fact, car accident victims can often recover additional economic damages, such as income they have lost as a result of their crash, as well as non-economic damages related to the pain they experienced as a result of their car accident.

The damages you can claim in your car accident lawsuit will be dependent on the unique circumstances surrounding your accident and injuries, but some that could apply to your claim are:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Cost of vehicle repairs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical bills
  • Loss of consortium

You may also be entitled to extra damages known as punitive damages. Unlike the economic and non-economic damages above, punitive damages are there to punish the at-fault party rather than make the injured party whole.

Again, this is not a comprehensive list by any means and the best way to determine what damages may be available to you is to consult with one of our Dallas car accident lawyers.
