Suing the Driver Who Caused my Car Accident

If you or someone you love has been injured in a Fort Worth car accident, it is normal to have a lot of questions. It is important that you do your research and become informed. You have some important decisions to make.

 

Perhaps the most important decision you have to make is “Should I make a personal injury claim?” - or a wrongful death claim if a member of your family was killed due to the negligence or another motorist. In most cases, the question is most definitely YES.

 

Accidents don’t just happen. They occur because someone is negligent. Texas law gives you the right to sue the negligent person in order to recover fair compensation to cover the cost of your accident-related medical bills and other expenses. There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t pursue fair compensation if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence.

 

I’m Afraid to Make a Claim Because I Don’t Want to Hurt the Negligent Driver

When you make a personal injury or wrongful death claim after a Fort Worth car wreck, the claim is against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company. That’s why we all have insurance after all! Even if your cases ends up going to court, even though the negligent driver is technically the defendant, it is never them who will pay any money awarded to you – it is always the insurance company.

 

Our law firm does not take on cases against drivers who do not have insurance, and I don’t know of any other Fort Worth attorneys who would attempt to sue an uninsured driver either. However – just because the negligent driver who caused your wreck did not have insurance, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t recover compensation after being injured.

Starting Your Claim with an Injury Lawyer in Fort Worth

The third question you most likely have is whether you should handle your claim by yourself, or whether you should hire an experienced Fort Worth personal injury attorney. Although you might assume that our law firm would always recommend that you hire a lawyer, the truth is that it really does depend on your personal situation. Sometimes it is perfectly fine to proceed without a legal team.

 

We do recommend, however, that you at least talk with an experienced attorney prior to making that decision. Our board certified lawyers offer all Fort Worth car crash victims a free, no obligation consultation so that you can make an informed decision based on our honest opinion given the circumstances of your case.
