  2. 2. A Common Story in Texas Every year in the Lone Star State, approximately a quarter of a million people are injured in car accidents. When someone suffers a serious injury in a crash, they might wonder whether they should consider filing an injury claim to pursue compensation for the costs of their injuries. In the pages that follow, we’ll look at some of the most common signs that an accident could lead to a personal injury claim. CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
  3. 3. Sign #1 - The Car Accident Resulted in Serious Injuries The biggest indicator of a potential case is a serious injury. In some cases, an injury is clear immediately after the crash, but it’s often true that an injury doesn’t manifest itself until the hours or days after the accident. It’s always in someone’s best interest to seek medical attention after a crash to find out the extent of a potential injury. 1 CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
  4. 4. Sign #2 - The Injuries are Costly and Debilitating The more expensive and debilitating the injury, the greater the impact it has on your life and, thus, the greater the chances that you should consider filing an injury claim. Medical bills can add up quickly. If the injury also reduces your ability to earn an income, these costs are compounded. 2 CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
  5. 5. Sign #3 - You Suspect the Other Driver Was At Fault In Texas, personal injury claims are typically filed against a “negligent” party who was responsible for the injury. In the case of a car accident, this means that another driver’s carelessness was the cause of the crash. The at-fault party should be held accountable for the costs of the injuries they have caused. 3 CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
  6. 6. Sign #4 - The Police Report Confirms Your Suspicions Sometimes a police report lists the cause of a car accident that makes it clear who was responsible. If the police report states that the other driver’s actions led to the crash, then you likely have a valid personal injury claim. Even if a report doesn’t necessarily state who was at fault, you are still within your right to explore your legal options. 4 CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
  7. 7. Sign #5 - The Other Party’s Insurance Company Isn’t Cooperating It’s not uncommon for another person’s insurance company to deny an injured person’s claim or to offer less than is being requested. These disputes are often at the heart of personal injury claims. If you find that the driver’s insurers are dragging their heels or are uncooperative, you should know that you don’t have to accept their offers. 5 CALL TODAY: 972-426-2621
