Every Year Car Accidents Cause
Hundreds of Thousands of Injuries
In 2020, 205,498 people in Texas were injured in auto accidents. Of that number, 14,656 were serious injuries.
What Should I Do Following a Car Accident?
Document the Car Accident
Use your phone to take video and detailed pictures of the vehicles and location so you have a record of the car accident and its aftermath. Gather the names and contact information from the other driver and any witnesses to the crash. Wait for law enforcement to arrive so a police report about the incident can be filed. All of this documentation can be used to build your case.
Seek Medical Attention
Many people are reluctant to report aches and pains after a crash because they believe the pain will simply go away on its own. In reality, soft tissue injuries can start with minor symptoms, developing into serious and lasting issues. No matter how minor your injuries, seek medical attention following your car accident. Tell your doctor about any issues you've experienced so you can get the medical care you need and have it documented.
Avoid Speaking to the Insurance Company
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 compensation. Representatives will act like they're on your side to get matters settled quickly. Speaking to the insurance company may hurt your ability to be fairly compensated.
Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
Speaking with a personal injury attorney will give you a better assessment of your case and what it's worth. During a free, no-obligation consultation with the car accident lawyers of Reed & Terry, LLP, you will receive a careful consideration of the collision. Our law firm in Sugar Land stands with accident victims and their loved ones. Our lawyers can give you insight into your injury claim and further legal options.
Statute of Limitations File Your Case ASAP
In the state of Texas, you have two years to file a personal injury claim after a car accident. Failure to do so within that timeframe means you can no longer seek legal damages. It's important that you contact our Sugar Land, TX, law office as soon as possible to discuss your collision.

Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer
When you are involved in a car accident caused by another driver's negligence, that driver's insurance provider is responsible for compensating you for property damage, medical bills and other losses. If their insurance provider refuses to concede that the other driver is at fault, the lawyers at Reed & Terry, LLP can help. We will deal directly with the insurance company on your behalf to obtain just compensation.
The Car Accident Claims Process
Reporting the Car Accident
You must first report a car accident to the police. It is up to both you and the other driver to contact your respective insurance companies. If you believe the other driver is responsible, 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, photos of the accident and accounts from witnesses.
Pursuing a SettlementNext, your car accident 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.
Taking Your Case to Civil Court
It is easier for all parties involved to reach an agreement out of court. If this cannot be achieved, the attorneys of Reed & Terry, LLP, will take your case to court. Our law firm isn't looking for a quick fix—we're looking for a fair resolution that will cover losses and help you recover and move forward.

Car Accident FAQ
Is Texas a no-fault state or an at-fault state?
Texas is an at-fault state. This means that the insurance provider of the at-fault driver is responsible for paying out your injury claim.
Can I get compensation after a hit-and-run accident?
If you were struck by a driver who did not stop, you may still be able to obtain compensation. Uninsured motorist (UIM) insurance can provide a source of compensation. Before speaking to an insurance company representative, you should discuss your case with our personal injury lawyers. If you or a family member has UIM coverage, you may be able to obtain compensation even if the other driver cannot be located.
What is proportionate responsibility?
Proportionate responsibility is an important concept in personal injury law. It's a variation of comparative negligence statutes in other states. Proportionate responsibility essentially means that a car accident victim can also be held at fault for what happened in a collision. If the victim is more than 50% responsible for their injuries, they cannot collect legal damages from the defendant.
For example, you may not be awarded any damages if a jury finds that your failure to wear a seatbelt significantly contributed to the severity of your injuries in a crash.
What if a vehicle defect caused my car accident?
If your accident was caused by faulty tires, a malfunctioning brake system or other kinds of design or manufacturing defects, our lawyers can help you file a product liability claim. This legal action holds the designer, manufacturer or distributor of a defective auto part accountable for the harm they have caused.
What if I got into an accident outside of Sugar Land?
