Driving On Texas Roads Is A Necessary Risk Even Though Automobile Accidents Are One Of The Leading Causes of Death For Persons Under 60 By Austin Car Wreck Lawyer & Central Texas Automobile Accident Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Every year truck, motorcycle, bus, car, and other automobile collisions kill and seriously injure a large number of Texans. In fact, auto accidents are one of the leading causes of death in Texas and in the United States. This has become especially true with the deregulation of trucking in Texas and the opening up of our borders with Mexico through NAFTA.

Battling Insurance Companies to Pay Automobile Accident Claims

Driving on our roads is a necessary risk we all have to take. In Texas we are required by law to buy auto insurance for our cars and trucks in order to compensate injured parties in the event we cause an accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always adequately compensate those injured in serious collisions or the families of persons killed by negligent drivers. They prefer to pay as little as possible on legitimate accident claims when they can get away with it. If you don’t have a lawyer and have been offered compensation on a current claim, it is possible that you are eligible for cash damages many times what is being offered. Hiring an attorney especially in catastrophic damage cases can greatly increase the amount that you recover in your claim for damages.

Whether the accident was caused by reckless driving, mechanical error, and/or alcohol, you need a lawyer that understands insurance companies, can navigate liability insurance, PIP, medical pay, uninsured, and underinsured motorist coverage. You may be able to receive compensation, not only for property damage, but for medical costs, lost wages, future losses, impairment, disfigurement, pain and suffering and other damages. If you have been seriously injured in an accident, it is important that you contact an attorney so you fully understand your rights before proceeding with a claim.

Please feel free to contact The Law Offices of Jason S. Coomer for additional information on vehicle collisions, truck accidents, and car crashes.  Don't think that if you have suffered serious injuries in an automobile collision that the insurance industry will take care of you or voluntarily pay you for all the medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, impairment, disfigurement, and other damages that you have suffered.  They probably won't.  In fact, many insurance adjusters will offer low settlement amounts hoping that you will sign away your claim prior to knowing the full extent of your damages.  I have also seen insurance adjusters will delay and allow the statute of limitations to run relieving the insurance company of any liability.

Texas Drunk Driver Automobile Accident Lawsuits

Every year drunk drivers and drivers under the influence of alcohol and drugs kill and seriously injure a large number of Texans.  In fact, alcohol related automobile accidents are one of the leading causes of death in Texas as well as in the United States. Under Texas law a driver is considered drunk or under the influence if they do not have the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body or if they have a blood alcohol concentration of over .08.   It is against Texas law for drunk drivers to operate motor vehicles, water craft, and air craft.  If the drunk driver causes an automobile accident or boating accident that causes serious injuries or death, they can be charged under Texas law with intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter both serious felonies. 

In handling Texas drunk driver accident claims, it is important to review the police report and medical records to determine if any tickets or citations were issued or if any tests were done to determine if the negligent driver was under the influence.  It is also important to speak with witnesses to determine where the person was before the accident and what they were doing that caused the accident.  In many instances it is obvious if the person was drunk.  Evidence of drunk driving can include sporadic driving including driving at high rates of speed, weaving in and out of traffic, and not following traffic signals.  It can also include a person who is slurring, staggering, or out of control after the automobile accident that they have caused.   For more information on drunk driver car wreck claims, follow this link to Texas Drunk Driver Automobile Accident Claims or feel free to contact Texas Drunk Driver Automobile Accident Lawyer Jason Coomer.

Texas Truck Accident Claims

The Texas Trucking industry is a multi-million dollar industry that is essential to our economy. Unfortunately, with hundreds of thousands of large commercial trucks driving on our roads and highways comes the potential of catastrophic damages. Many Trucking Companies to save money use untrained, overworked, or inexperienced drivers and put stressful time constraints on these drivers causing the to rush to make deliveries.  These actions combined with poor maintenance can cause these drivers to drive negligently and lose control of their vehicles causing them to jackknife, overturn, or collide with passenger vehicles. When this happens it is typically the passengers of the smaller vehicle that suffer. If this has happened to you or your family, it is a good idea to obtain excellent legal representation to protect your or your loved one's rights and to make sure that an investigation as to the cause of the collision in done correctly.  Truck collision accident claims can be difficult to handle especially if you are recovering from serious injuries or grieving from the loss of one or more family members.

If you have been seriously injured by in a truck collision, car crash, motorcycle accident, or other automobile collision, it is important to seek medical help to determine how to treat the head trauma, back herniations, broken bones, or injuries you have suffered. It is then a good idea to contact the authorities and/or explore a possible law suit to make sure that the wrongful act or hazardous conditions can be remedied.  Texans do not need dangerous truck drivers or negligent trucking companies making our roads, streets, and highways more dangerous.  Large commercial trucks that weigh several tons are dangerous enough when driven safely and when they are well maintained.  Deregulation of the trucking industry in Texas has made the number of dangerous truck on our roads and trucking companies operating on our highways increase dramatically.  Be careful out there and avoid being the victim of a truck accident or a serious truck collision.

Texas Inexperienced Driver Accident Lawsuits

Inexperienced Drivers also cause many automobile accidents as they are unfamiliar on how to drive.  Many drive too fast for conditions, fail to obey speed limits, and get themselves in dangerous situations by following too close or aggressive maneuvers that do not allow escape routes. If you have been injured by a young inexperienced driver that negligent drove too close to you or lost control of their vehicle, it is important to hire an attorney that is experienced in handling negligent entrustment claims and inexperienced driver claims.

Texas Fatal Automobile Accident Lawsuits

Automobile accidents that result in someone's death should be properly investigated to determine what happened and to make sure that other people are not injured in similar fatal accidents.  In addition to the police investigation, insurance companies typically investigate fatal automobile accidents to determine and limit their liability in any fatal automobile accident claims that may arise out of a fatal accident.  Many times the insurance adjuster, trucking company representatives, or courier service representatives will be sent to a fatal accident site in attempt to protect the insurance company or business from liability.  The information obtained through these investigations as well as the police investigation can be extremely important in performing an independent investigation of the fatal accident. 

It is also important that your lawyer is familiar with the accident scene as well as any investigations that have been done regarding the fatal automobile accident.  Texas fatal automobile accident lawyer, Jason Coomer, performs thorough investigations on the facts surrounding fatal automobile accident claims including obtaining driver background checks; reviewing trucking company & courier company investigations & records; inspecting the vehicles involved in the fatal accident; and going to the scene of the fatal automobile accident.  He feels it is important to thoroughly investigate every fatal automobile accident claim that he decides to handle.
