Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can instantly change your life forever. A serious collision can result in life-changing injuries, lost wages, and significant pain and suffering. With no money coming in and faced with steep medical bills, you must take legal action as soon as possible. If you were injured in a car crash due to a negligent driver, a Baytown car accident lawyer at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm can investigate your accident, prove the other driver acted negligently, and help you recover compensation that will cover all accident-related expenses.


How Can a Baytown Car Accident Attorney Help?

If you were injured in an auto accident, filing a claim can help you recover compensation that will cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages from work, property damage, and other accident-related costs. However, recovering the fair settlement you’re entitled to can be challenging, especially if the other driver is denying liability and you’re unable to prove the other driver was negligent. That’s where a car accident lawyer in Baytown at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm can help. 

Our Auto accident lawyer can help you during this challenging time in many ways, including:

Investigating the Accident

An attorney on our legal team will investigate the accident to uncover the truth and obtain valuable information and evidence that can prove liability. 

Our car accident attorneys will gather evidence such as:

And more.


This evidence will allow us to build a strong case that will prove the other party involved was at fault for the collision.

Negotiate with the Insurance Company

An insurance company is out to make a profit. The goal of a claims adjuster is to pay as little as possible if anything at all. A claims adjuster can be difficult to negotiate with and may be quick to deny your claim altogether. Because of this, it’s important to avoid speaking with the insurance company or accepting any offers until you’ve contacted a car accident lawyer at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm. We have extensive experience handling aggressive claims adjusters and are familiar with the tactics and strategies used to deny a claim or minimize payout.  While we negotiate with the insurance company, you can focus on healing and moving on with your life.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurance company denies your claim or refuses to offer fair compensation, an attorney on our legal team can file a lawsuit on your behalf. An attorney will only recommend doing so if they believe you stand a better chance of recovering the compensation you’re owed if you go to trial. As we prepare your case for court, we will continue to negotiate with the insurance company. Fortunately, most car accident claims are settled out of court. An insurance company does not want to waste time and money on a lengthy trial.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth? 

Our car accident lawyers will investigate your case and may consult with experts to determine the value of your damages. The damages you’re entitled to can depend on several factors, such as:

And many other variables.

In some cases, you may be entitled to the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

Brittany F

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

"I am very pleased with Ben Dominguez Law Firm for how they handled my case. I would recommend this Law Firm to anyone that is in need of a Law Firm. Everything was handled in a timely normal manner and I was pleased with the outcome."

How Will the Insurance Company Investigate My Car Accident?

Once you have filed a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company, a claims adjuster will contact you and ask for a recorded statement. You should not speak with a claims adjuster without first speaking with a car accident lawyer. An attorney can advise you regarding what to say and what to avoid saying when speaking with the insurance company. 

During this time, the insurance company will conduct its own accident investigation. They will speak with all parties involved, including passengers and any witnesses. They will visit the scene of the accident and take photos, obtain a copy of the police report, review medical records, and obtain other evidence, such as:

And more.

The goal of an insurance company is to deny a claim or pay out as little as possible. After they have conducted their investigation, a claims adjuster will assign each party a level of fault. If the accident victim is 51% at fault or more, the insurance company will deny the claim. If the policyholder is found to be at fault, the claims adjuster will make a settlement offer. In most cases, the settlements offered by insurance companies are never enough to cover the cost of all accident-related losses. 


If you’ve hired a car accident lawyer, they will handle settlement negotiations on your behalf and ensure an insurance company does not pressure you into accepting a lower settlement than what you’re owed. If the other driver was at fault and the insurance company has denied your claim, an attorney can help you appeal the decision and fight for your right to fair compensation.
