Car Accidents in Texas

Every year, thousands of preventable motor vehicle accidents plague our state, causing countless collisions and leaving victims dealing with the aftermath. Many find themselves undergoing extensive medical treatments and forced to take significant time off work to recover. Sadly, negligence is often behind these accidents.

We witness numerous individuals injured in accidents caused by speeding drivers, those who fail to yield, and others who recklessly run red lights at intersections. When you’re hurt in a car crash, it’s crucial to take legal action against those responsible. To succeed, you must demonstrate the negligence that existed at the time of the incident.

Determining Fault

Determining fault in a car accident can be complex. If you’re considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, you’ll need to establish fault, which often involves showing that the defendant had a duty of care towards you and breached it. This breach could stem from actions like speeding, driving under the influence, or other reckless behaviors.

Once you have proven a breach, you must also establish that this breach directly caused the accident and your injuries. However, it’s essential to note that insurance companies frequently try to shift blame onto you for any injuries and damages incurred. This underscores the importance of seeking legal representation from a dedicated Austin car accident attorney.
