Car Accident Lawyer

An auto accident is often caused by the negligent actions or inaction of another motorist. While inclement weather and poor road conditions can also be to blame, in most cases, auto accidents are preventable. If you were injured in a car crash due to a negligent driver, a Galveston 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 Galveston 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 Galveston 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 Long Does it Take to Settle a Car Accident Case?

The time it takes to settle an auto accident claim can depend on many variables, such as:

And many other factors.

A simple rear-end accident may take only a few months to settle, while a more complex accident, such as one that involves life-changing injuries, can take years. Your car accident lawyer will do everything they can to ensure the insurance company does not drag its feet during the process.

What Types of Damages Can I Claim After a Car Accident?

The damages you’re entitled to will depend on the circumstances of the accident, the severity of your injuries, your level of fault, and other factors. 

In some cases, an auto accident victim can recover the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

An attorney will carefully evaluate your claim to determine which damages you can pursue. If you sustained a life-changing injury they will work with experts to ensure your demand for damages is accurately reflected in the settlement demand letter.

Seeking Medical Attention Post-Vehicle Collision 

Even if you were not injured or you suffered only minor injuries after a car accident, you must seek medical attention as soon as possible. Certain types of serious injuries may not present symptoms for several hours or even days following a car crash. Aside from protecting your health, receiving medical care after an auto accident can also help to strengthen your claim by directly linking your injuries to the collision. 

A gap in time between the accident and receiving medical treatment allows the insurance company to question the severity of your injuries. An insurer may even claim that your injuries were sustained at some point after the accident. Once you have been evaluated by a medical professional, you must keep any documentation, including medical bills, for evidence of your injuries, the severity of your injuries, and the costs you have incurred as a result of the collision.
