Thousands of people are injured in car accidents every year in Texas. For many of these people life after the accident is never the same. Injuries from a motor vehicle accident can result in years of pain and disability.
Almost all accidents are caused by negligence on the part of one or more drivers. Negligence means the failure to act as a reasonable person would under the same circumstances. Negligent driving includes all manner of unsafe choices including speeding, failing to keep a lookout for other vehicles, driving drunk and texting and driving. It also includes simply failing to be alert, resulting in a missed stop sign or the failure to see a pedestrian stepping into the crosswalk. An unsafe driving act does not have to be a violation of the law or result in a citation to constitute negligence for purposes of a civil lawsuit.
Experience makes a big difference in auto accident injury cases. At the law firm of Reed & Terry, L.L.P. we have helped thousands of injured car accident victims recover the compensation they need to put their lives back on track. At our law firm we pride ourselves on conducting a thorough investigation of the accident and building a strong case to present to a jury.
We understand the importance of identifying all potential sources of recovery including not only the other driver's insurance policy, but also personal injury protection benefits and uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage under our client's own policy. We collect and carefully review all the relevant medical records. We work with our client's doctors and other health care providers to develop their testimony for trial.
