What to Do After a Car Wreck
If you took pictures at the scene of the accident, collected witness contact information, or have already received any kind of documentation from a doctor, you need to digitally duplicate all of this information. It's as easy as emailing it to yourself, where it can be protected from damage or theft of your digital devices.
Don't Talk About the Accident
If the other driver, their insurance company, or anyone else wants to discuss your case with you, don't. Instead, tell them to speak to your attorney. These people are only trying to protect themselves and minimize your claim through tactics such as taking your statements out of context.
Keep Your Medical Appointments
Car accident injuries aren't always immediately apparent. You may feel fine at the moment, but it's imperative that you don't skip any doctor's appointments. The doctor can determine the true extent of your injuries, and their documentation of these injuries is essential to your case.
Access to a Rental Car
After a Car Wreck
After a car accident, your vehicle may need repairs before it can be operated safely. While waiting on these repairs, our clients are entitled to a rental car that is similar to their vehicle in the shop. The Law Firm of Roger 'Rocky' Walton, P.C. will help clients get this rental car until their damaged vehicle is repaired.
Bad Weather and
Rain, snow, ice, and high winds can exacerbate an already dangerous driving situation. Similarly, poorly maintained roads, malfunctioning traffic signals, or a lack of signage can make a street or highway deadly. During your no-obligation consultation, our lawyers can assess how much the weather and road conditions contributed to your car accident. Weather is rarely an excuse for causing an accident on the road, since motorists have an obligation to take caution under these conditions. Meanwhile, municipalities have an obligation to motorists to maintain safe roadways.
Even Minor Car Accident Injuries Can Have Long-Term Effects
Whether you're involved in a head-on collision or a minor fender bender, it's important to seek a medical evaluation. A doctor can diagnose life-threatening injuries as well as minor injuries that can have life-changing effects. Prompt medical treatment is essential, regardless of how little pain you are currently experiencing.
Your Injury Tells a Story
When building your case, the Law Firm of Roger 'Rocky' Walton, P.C. will obtain a narrative medical report about your injuries. Telling the story of your injury and how it affects your life can be a persuasive tool in collecting maximum restitution on a victim's behalf.
Rocky and his team will use every tool at their disposal to convince others of the severity of your injuries and the life-altering impact it has had on you and your loved ones.
"I was referred to this firm by 1 of my clients for my car wreck and I must say everyone was professional from start to finish. I was kept informed on the entire process and in case I was confused about anything, Kati would call and give me an overview of exactly where they were in the process. And the speedy turnaround was phenomenal. Although this is my 1st time EVER having to experience this, I believe I chose to go with the best law firm. They shot for the best settlement possible. Thank you Mr. Rocky, Ms. Kati, Ms. Michelle, Ms. Maggie, and Ms. Sharon for all of your help and support and may God continue to bless all of you and what you do. Thanks again!" Niki McDaniel
Will My Case Go to Trial?
In all likelihood, the answer is "no." Our car accident lawyers are able to settle about 85% of car accident cases out of court. This helps our clients receive restitution sooner rather than later and avoids the need for a drawn-out court battle. However, if a trial is the only way to collect what you truly deserve, we won't hesitate to take that route.
Proving Fault in a Car Accident
Your car accident lawyer will review all the available evidence to demonstrate that the other driver or another party was responsible for the accident.
Our injury attorneys will consult the official crash report from the police, the medical narrative report, witness testimony, and any available videos and photos to build a convincing case on your behalf.
The state of Texas has a form of modified comparative negligence known as proportionate responsibility. This applies to situations in which both parties may have been partially at fault in a crash.
Essentially, if a motorist seeking damages is found to be less than 50% at fault for a car wreck, they can collect restitution. If the plaintiff is more than 50% at fault, they cannot collect any damages.
