Investigation by a Dallas Accident Lawyer Is Essential
The Dallas accident attorneys of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. approach all auto accident cases in the same manner. A thorough investigation of the facts of the case is essential and is the first order of business. 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 a Dallas accident attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced with the substantive and procedural laws and who can artfully present and demonstrate the facts and evidence at a trial by jury.
A Dallas Accident Lawyer Must Prove Liability and Damages
The investigation conducted by our Dallas accident attorneys includes an examination of the two main elements of an auto accident 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 insurance companies attack first. After all, if they can show that the accident was not the fault of their insured, they will pay you nothing and you would lose if the case went to trial. A skilled Dallas accident attorney can make all the difference. In some cases, the question of liability may be revealed by an experienced Dallas accident attorney with just a cursory investigation. In other cases, it may be necessary to hire expert accident reconstructionists. No matter what your accident case may require, rest assured, the Dallas accident attorneys of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. will take all measures necessary to establish the liability of the negligent.
Damages is the second main part of an accident case that a Dallas accident attorney must establish and prove. Even when you clearly establish liability against a negligent person, their insurance company will undoubtedly attack your sustained damages. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing or that the accident 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 a skilled Dallas accident attorney 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. A qualified Dallas accident attorney will determine all possible types of damage and will put together the evidence to prove them.
Physical Injuries a Dallas Accident Lawyer May Prove
The physical injuries suffered from an 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 of a qualified Dallas accident attorney 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, which the Dallas accident attorneys 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. The Dallas accident attorneys with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. have the education, knowledge, and experience to properly prepare a Dallas Auto accident 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 person’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 person’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 lawyers' fee unless we get a monetary recovery for you.
Don’t “go-it-alone.” The long-term effects could be devastating.
