I called for a free consultation and after answering some questions about the case, I was transferred to Mr. Jack Reed. He listened to my situation and gave me an overview from his perspective. He then began breaking down the facts and was able to suggest an option I had not considered. I am grateful for the information. I was also impressed that he was so nice and "Texas friendly" about his legal expertise.

What Should I Do Following a Car Accident?

If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury in a car accident in the greater Austin or Houston areas, what you do following the crash can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. To help protect your rights, certain actions need to be taken immediately or avoided altogether. Some simple steps you can take after a car accident to ensure your ability to pursue compensation is protected include:

Seek Medical
Attention Immediately

doctor visit

No matter how minor your injuries, it is of the utmost importance that you seek medical attention. Tell your doctor about all of your symptoms. All too often, clients are reluctant to report aches and pains that they believe will simply go away on their own. In reality, serious soft tissue injuries may begin as small aches and pains but can grow into serious and lasting issues. By not reporting a symptom as soon as it reveals itself, you may encourage an insurance company to dispute or deny an injury claim as being unrelated to the accident.

Gather as Much
Information as You Can

after car crash

Use your phone to take many detailed pictures of the vehicles and the location so that you have as complete a record as possible of the aftermath of the car accident. Documentation of the amount and level of property damage is very important and can prove to be a major factor in the outcome of your case. If there are any eyewitnesses present, gather the names and contact information of everyone willing to share this information and pass it along to your attorney.

Do Not Talk to the
Insurance Company

distressed man

Insurance companies are in the business of collecting premiums, not paying claims. Employees are trained to gather information that will help them deny or minimize the amount of compensation paid towards your claim. Representatives will portray themselves as being on your side. They will say that they are looking to get things settled as quickly and easily as possible. Unfortunately, by speaking to these representatives, you may actually hurt your ability to be fairly compensated for your injuries. So that you can achieve a fair and just settlement, contact our personal injury attorneys before speaking to the insurance company.

The Claims Process

When you are involved in a car accident in Texas that happened because of another driver's negligence, that driver's insurance provider is responsible for compensating you for property damage, medical bills, and other losses. But what if their insurance provider won't pay what you actually deserve? What if they refuse to concede that the other driver is responsible? When you hire Reed & Terry, L.L.P., we will deal directly with the insurance company on your behalf to achieve justice. The claims process involves:

Reporting the Accident

You must first report a car accident to the police. It is up to both you and the driver to contact your respective insurance companies. If you believe the other driver is at fault, you should first reach out to an attorney who can speak to both insurance companies on your behalf.  

Building Your Case

Your attorney will begin collecting evidence about the accident and its aftermath in order to establish the other party's fault and determine how much restitution you are owed. This evidence will include the police report, your medical records, and any evidence you can provide such as photos of the accident and the names of any witnesses.

Pursuing a Settlement

Next, your attorney will begin speaking with the other party's insurance company to try and reach a settlement that covers the true extent of your losses. If your attorney and the insurance company can come to an agreement that covers your losses, the claim is considered settled. 

Court

It is easier for all parties involved to reach an agreement out of court. But if this cannot be achieved, the attorneys of Reed & Terry L.L.P., will absolutely not hesitate to take your case to court. Our firm isn't looking for a quick resolution - we're looking for a just resolution that will restore your life as closely as possible to the way it was before the accident.

Common Types of Car Accidents

Our law firm has a history of success in all types of auto accident cases. Our attorneys have the investigative resources and skills that can make all the difference in the outcome of your claim. We represent people throughout Texas in cases involving all types of car accidents, including:

T-Bone Collisions

T-Bone Collisions

When drivers pass through an intersection or cross through traffic to make a left-hand turn onto a road, they expose themselves to the risk of a T-bone or side-impact car accident. Modern cars and trucks include side-impact airbags that can help reduce injuries from a T-bone accident, but older vehicles don't have this added layer of protection. Unfortunately, side-impact airbags can only help so much when a driver or passenger is only protected from the full force of a collision by a car door. With less material separating drivers and passengers from the actual point of impact, the amount of force experienced in a T-bone collision often leads to severe injury.

Rear-End Accidents

Rear-End Accidents

The most common type of auto accident - being rear-ended -  is often unavoidable. Some drivers may look into the rearview mirror at the last moment and see the other car moments before impact which can cause the driver to brace for impact. This often causes additional injury. Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash are a common result of rear-end collisions. Unlike a broken bone that shows up on an X-ray, soft tissue injuries are incredibly difficult to accurately document. These injuries generally require additional proof from medical experts.

Sideswipe

Sideswipe

These types of car accidents can occur between vehicles that are traveling in the same direction, as well as those traveling in opposite directions. The initial impact may create enough force to cause an injury. The initial impact may also cause one or both of the vehicles to veer into another object, causing further injury. Sideswipes are often caused by driver carelessness such as improper lane changes and texting while driving. Proving the other driver's fault is the key to securing just compensation for injuries in these types of collisions. In these cases, our law firm may rely on accident reconstruction experts and private investigators to help us build a strong case.

Multiple-Vehicle Crashes

Multiple-Vehicle Crashes

Multiple-vehicle accidents often involve complex issues when it comes to determining who is liable for which injuries. Accidents involving more than one vehicle often begin with a vehicle stopping unexpectedly in the roadway, but may occur in a variety of forms, including:

Domino: The initial crash is then struck in the rear by another vehicle that is in turn struck by another vehicle creating a direct chain of sequential impacts.

Single vehicle causing multiple impacts: A line of cars is stopped and the last vehicle in the chain is struck with enough force to push the vehicles in front of it together.

Loss of control: A car is struck by another and loses control, colliding with one or more other cars in the path of the out-of-control vehicle.

These situations involve multiple insurance carriers and require accident reconstruction in order to determine liability. 

Hit-and-Run

Hit-and-Run

If you have been struck by a driver who does not stop, you may still be able to obtain compensation. Uninsured motorist (UIM) insurance can provide a source of compensation. Remember that insurance adjusters and claims agents are trained to obtain statements from accident victims that can be used to defeat insurance claims. Before speaking to an insurance company representative, you should discuss your case with a personal injury attorney. If you or a family member has uninsured motorist coverage, you may be able to obtain compensation even if the other driver cannot be located.

Rollovers

Rollovers

Rollovers often happen at high speeds and can be the result of the high center of gravity of many SUVs and trucks. If a design or manufacturing flaw caused or contributed to your accident and the resulting injuries, our car accident lawyers can help you aggressively pursue the maximum compensation. No matter what type of vehicle you were in when your rollover accident occurred, our law firm can help you secure access to the medical and financial resources you need to recover from your injuries.

Distracted Drivers

Distracted Drivers

Every day, numerous car, truck and motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted by texting or talking on a cellphone. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines distracted driving as any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving.

Motorists can be distracted by any number of things, including:

  • Texting
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Fatigue
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Talking to passengers
  • Eating, drinking and smoking
  • Grooming

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, the personal injury lawyers of our law firm can prove the other driver was not paying attention. By holding these drivers accountable, you may be saving someone from a similar outcome in the future.

Drunk Drivers

Drunk Drivers

Car accidents can be particularly devastating when you or a loved one has been the victim of a drunk driving accident. Our Texas law firm helps victims of DWI accidents collect full compensation for their injuries and damages, including exemplary (punitive) damages, when warranted. Drunk driving accidents can be caused by commercial or personal vehicles. In either instance, our compassionate car accident lawyers can work to obtain full and fair compensation for you or an injured loved one.

We Carefully Build Car Accident Cases So You Can Achieve a Successful Result

When you choose Reed & Terry, L.L.P., we will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your auto accident injury case. Working with a car accident reconstruction expert, we will determine how the crash happened. This allows us to prove the liability of the responsible party so that we can hold them accountable for their actions. After reviewing all of the evidence, your personal injury lawyer will determine the value of your case, which includes damages for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost income and more. Our law firm gladly assists those injured in a car in the greater Austin and Houston areas.
