Your Fight with the Insurance Companies
In the aftermath of your crash, you might find yourself dealing with two insurance companies: yours and the other driver’s. Dealing with one is bad enough when you’re already dealing with your own injuries and stress, but dealing with two insurers only highlights the benefits of allowing an attorney to handle the matter for you.
Most insurance companies like to project the image that they’re always on their customers’ side. That would be nice if it were true, but, most of the time, it’s not. Your own insurance company will likely make every effort it can to downplay your injuries and property damage to reduce the amount of compensation it owes you.
You’re likely going to deal with the same issues when you get a call from the other driver’s insurance company. They may make it sound like asking you for a statement about your crash is just a part of the process, but you don’t have to answer them. In fact, answering them could open you up to liability if they’re able to twist your words to point the blame at you.
An easy alternative is to simply inform the insurance company that you have hired a La Porte car wreck attorney. Advise the insurers to call your lawyer, who will know exactly what to say to make sure you aren’t the victim of shady insurance tactics after your car accident.
Identifying Your Injuries
After your crash, you likely went to the hospital if you were seriously injured. If you haven’t yet gone to see a doctor, you should do so as soon as possible. That’s because a medical professional can make sure you’re OK and provide official documentation of all the injuries your auto accident caused. This sort of documentation is going to be critical when you list your injuries in your claim for compensation. And the more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you should receive if your claim is successful. Here are some common serious injuries tied to car accidents in La Porte:
- Back and spine damage, including paralysis and chronic pain
- Traumatic brain injuries, such as contusions and concussions
- Burns, including extremely severe third-degree burns
- Fractured and broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Organ damage
With severe injuries come significant damages, and your inability to continue working due to the extent of your condition can put your family in serious financial stress. With household bills continuing to pile up and medical expenses climbing, it is in your best interest to speak with a La Porte car accident attorney who can help you fight to protect your legal rights.

In a car accident injury case after a car accident, one must prove 4 elements to win their case. Did the defendant have a duty owed to the plaintiff? Was there a breach of that duty owed? Were the defendant’s actions or lack of actions what caused accident to occur? Was the plaintiff injured or suffered damages due to the defendant’s negligence. To determine the negligence one must look to see if reasonable care was used. While an action might not be intentional, the defendant might still be liable or responsible for your damages.
