Do I have to sue the person who caused my wreck, or can I sue the insurance company?

Many people who have been hurt in accidents in Fort Worth and Dallas are hesitant to talk with a personal injury attorney because they don’t want to have to sue anyone. The lawyers at the Anderson Law Firm are routinely asked the same question during our free case consultations, “Do I have to sue the person who caused my wreck, or can I sue the insurance company?”

The answer to this question is that in Texas, you would be suing the person who caused your accident, but it will really be their insurance policy that pays out in the end. By pursuing legal action, you won’t really be taking money out of their pocket – the compensated you are awarded will come from the insurance company, such as Allstate, Progressive or Geico to give an example.

Does it take a lawsuit to settle every DFW personal injury case?

If you’re unfamiliar with the legal world other than what is shown to you on TV and movies, it seems like everyone is suing everyone. But in reality, many cases - especially personal injury cases – are settled outside of court. Yes, it is possible that your case could be decided on by a jury, but just because you hire a personal injury attorney doesn’t mean you’ll be suing anybody. At the Anderson Law Firm, our attorneys and legal staff are experienced at negotiating with the insurance company and putting together evidence to make sure we can get the maximum compensation available for your case.

Our personal injury lawyers have more than 40 years of experience fighting for the rights of wrongfully injured individuals. If you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of our free case consultation.  During this meeting you will receive sound legal advice on the best way to proceed with your case.
