Although drivers are required to carry insurance coverage, our personal injury law firm recommends seeking legal advice as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident. The reason is strategic: An insurance carrier may not provide the best result unless it knows that a crash victim is willing and able to hold a negligent driver accountable in a civil court of law. That leverage often results in a more favorable settlement offer.
The plaintiff in a personal injury case has the burden of proving the other driver's negligence by a preponderance of evidence. Fortunately, our South Texas law firm has helped many car accident victims prepare for trial. Our experience informs the process of preparing trial evidence.
We begin our review with the accident report, analyzing the other driver's behavior in light of applicable road and traffic conditions. We may also work with crash reconstruction experts, gather any eyewitness accounts, and substantiate the victim's damages in order to prepare the best possible case for trial.
