Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. Some accidents are, for the most part, unpredictable and unpreventable, often being caused by severe weather conditions or freak accidents like a blown-out tire. Most times, however, a car accident will be the result of bad or aggressive driving. If two cars are involved in an accident, it is likely that at least one of the drivers were driving unsafely. If you were involved in a two-car accident, and you believe that the crash was the fault of the other driver, you may be entitled to compensation. You should not have to pay for the negligence of other people on the road.

Negligence simply refers to a driver doing something that puts his safety and the safety of other drivers at risk. This can include speeding, excessive lane changing, or failure to obey other traffic laws. Speeding is one of the leading causes of car accidents. It needlessly puts the driver and everyone else on the road in danger. Since speeding reduces the amount time a driver has to react to the situation, it puts drivers at a higher risk of getting into a crash. If an accident does occur, higher speeds will create more damage. If it can be proven that the other driver was speeding, then you will likely win your court case. There are a variety of ways that the police can determine the approximate speed of a car that was in a crash among other info, they can look at skid marks and the damage to your car and the other car.

Drunk driving is another common form of negligence. Thousands of people are hurt or killed by drunk driving every year, but it continues to be a problem. If you have been hit by a drunk driver, then you have an excellent case. There are lawyers who specialize in drunk driving cases and will be able to get you the best possible settlement. Juries and judges have been acting more harshly against drunk drivers in recent years, which will certainly help your case. If you required hospitalization after being hit by a drunk driver, then you have a great chance of a large settlement. Many times, they will be able to get payment for the damages to your vehicle, your medical expenses, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering that their mistake cost you.

Texas has many specific laws that an in-state attorney will know backwards and forwards. For instance, the state of Texas has a small claims limit of $10,000 anything higher than that can not be judged in a small claims court. Texas also has a personal injury statute of limitations of two years from the date of the injury or the date of the discovery of the injury. This means that if you've been injured in a car crash, you only have two years to bring a case to court.
