Investigation by Auto Accident Law Firms Is Essential
Investigation of the specific facts of each case by auto accident law firms is essential and is the first order of business. At Todd E. Tkach, P.C., the investigation is conducted with the resolution of last resort in mind; a jury trial. Even if the case doesn’t go to trial, it will settle, if at all, based on the facts that can be proved and demonstrated if the case were to go to trial. That investigation necessitates the involvement of auto accident law firms which are knowledgeable and experienced with the substantive and procedural laws and which can artfully present and demonstrate the facts and evidence at a trial by jury.
Auto Accident Law Firms Must Prove Liability and Damages
The investigation conducted by qualified auto accident law firms must include an examination of the two main elements of a car wreck case; “liability” and “damages”. Liability is the first hurdle that must be overcome. What does “liability” mean? Essentially, it means; who’s at fault for the collision? In some cases, the question of who was at fault is very clear. But in others it must be investigated and demonstrated. The issue of liability is usually where automobile insurance companies attack first. After all, if they can show that the collision was not the fault of their insured, they will pay you nothing and you would lose if the case went to trial. The skill of the lawyers with qualified auto accident law firms can make all the difference. In some cases, the question of liability may be revealed by an experienced auto accident lawyer with just a cursory investigation of the vehicles and the scene of the collision. In other cases, it may be necessary to hire expert auto accident reconstructionists. No matter what your auto accident case may require, rest assured, the auto accident lawyers of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. will take all measures necessary to establish the liability of the negligent driver.
Damages is the second main part of a car wreck case that auto accident law firms must establish and prove. Even when you clearly establish liability against a negligent driver, their insurance company will undoubtedly attack your sustained damages. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing or that the collision could not possibly have caused your injuries. Many times, they’ll argue that your injuries are simply worth little or no compensation. This is where skilled attorneys with qualified auto accident law firms can increase your compensation. On first thought, “damages” seem to be pretty clear. But, there are many types of damages recognized by Texas law that most people are probably not aware of. This is where many auto accident law firms drop the ball. The lawyers with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. will determine all possible types of damage and will put together the evidence to prove them.
Vehicle Damages Auto Accident Law Firms May Prove
It may sound strange, but the damage most likely to cause you the most frustration is the damage to your vehicle. All auto accident law firms hear about the frustration auto accident victims experience when trying to get their car repaired. After a collision, most people will be without their vehicle for days or even weeks. Whether the damage is repairable or the vehicle is “totaled,” it will take some time to repair the vehicle or purchase another vehicle. We depend greatly on our vehicles, and not having it for transportation is extremely frustrating and irritating. Making matters worse, you have to deal with the negligent driver’s insurance company, which is no hurry to pay you for anything. Let the auto accident law firm of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. carry you through the whole process.
We’ll help you get a rental car and will seek to have the negligent driver’s insurance company pay for it. Many times, insurance companies will not even offer a rental car, even though they are required by law to pay for it. We can also refer you to a qualified body shop for repairs. Most insurance companies will direct you to one of their “Blue Ribbon” repair facilities. Too often under those circumstances, we’ve heard the complaints that they didn’t repair everything, or that the work was poorly done. You may also have a claim for dimunition in value. That’s the difference between what your vehicle was worth prior to the collision and what it’s worth after repairs from the collision. This is a vehicle damage that even some experienced auto accident law firms fail to even ask for or inquire about. It’s a mistake that can cost thousands of dollars. To be sure, an insurance company will never bring up the vehicle damage of dimunition in value and, of course, will make no offer for that damage. If your vehicle is “totaled,” we’ll fight for compensation for the full market value and won’t settle for the discounted market value offered by the insurance company. You need the help of an experienced auto accident lawyer to maximize the recovery of your car wreck case.
Physical Injuries Auto Accident Law Firms May Prove
The physical injuries suffered from an auto accident can be the most challenging from which to seek compensation. What is fair compensation for injuries? In years past, as a rule of thumb, some people used to use a multiplier of the amount of the medical bills as their measure of their damages. Those days are long gone! In this era of tort reform, there is no magic formula to determine the value of physical injuries. You need the knowledge and skill that qualified auto accident law firms like Todd E. Tkach, P.C. can offer to maximize the recovery for your physical injuries. Some of the elements of damages that may be recovered for physical injuries include claims for both past and future medical bills, physical impairment, mental anguish, physical pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of consortium, disfigurement, loss of body part, bystander claims and fear of future disease or disfigurement. Demonstrating these damages requires a painstaking development process. Top auto accident law firms do whatever it takes to demonstrate all damages; a task which the auto accident lawyers of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. have done hundreds of times. The process includes a thorough investigation, and complete and accurate record keeping, including medical records and bills, photographs, diaries, police reports, accident reconstruction analysis, investigative reports and testifying expert reports. We have the education, knowledge, and experience to properly prepare a car wreck case and to present it to insurance adjusters or juries.
After your case if fully prepared, we’ll present it and demand a settlement from the negligent driver’s insurance company. If possible, we’ll try to reach a settlement through aggressive negotiations. In most cases, a settlement can be reached. However, if the negligent driver’s insurance company refuses to settle, we’ll take it to trial and present it to a jury. In that event, we will ask not only for all of the available elements of damage, but also pre-judgment interest, court costs and post-judgment interest until the full amount is paid.
Initial consultations are always free and there are no costs or attorneys' fee unless we get a monetary recovery for you.
