“Great group of people to work with—very efficient and professional. Alex has put together a great Team!”
When you have been hurt in an auto accident, it is best to work with a personal injury attorney who can guide you through the process of obtaining compensation, either through an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. However, you need the attorney representing you to have specific experience in the type of accident you were involved in. If you were injured in a hit and run, your case may not move forward as efficiently as it should if your lawyer never handled a hit and run before.
At Begum Law Group, our attorneys have handled virtually every car accident scenario over the years. No matter what type of vehicle you were in, no matter what type of collision lead to your injuries, we can help.
Some of the most common types of car crash claims we handle include:
If you were involved in a car accident in San Antonio or anywhere in Texas, then you must stop to handle the situation. Our car crash lawyers have handled countless car accident claims and found that drivers often benefit from going through certain steps after an accident.
Car accidents can occur for almost any reason. Someone going a few miles over the speed limit when the road is wet can easily cause an accident. Additionally, many drivers get behind the wheel and behave in a way that is highly likely to cause car accident injuries.
At Begum Law Group, we handle crashes that arose from all causes and circumstances, including:
One of the first priorities after being hurt in a car accident is undergoing an independent investigation of the wreck. You should not rely on an insurer to investigate and decide what went wrong. It would be nice if you could trust an insurer to come to the right conclusion, and offer you a fair settlement. Unfortunately, more often then not you will have to dispute one or more of an insurer’s conclusions. You may even have to appeal a wrongly denied claim or assert they have engaged in bad faith insurance.
Our lawyers are here to thoroughly investigate the accident to gather evidence, including:
We will gather as much information as possible regarding the crash to determine why it happened, who is at fault, and who is liable for compensating you for your injuries. We may be able to obtain enough evidence without a lawsuit through an insurance claim. However, we may also recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit soon after the accident. This serves multiple purposes. Through the discovery phase of a lawsuit, we can request information and documentation from the other party. In some cases, this is the only way to obtain vital evidence of fault. Filing a lawsuit also shows the insurer that we are serious about obtaining maximum compensation for your injuries.
The purpose of a personal injury claim after a car accident is to obtain the compensation that gives you the best chance at recovery. You probably experienced any number of financial repercussions from the accident, including getting your vehicle repaired or replaced, using a rental car, your medical expenses, lost wages, and more. You need a car accident settlement to compensate you for all of this and more.
At Begum Law Group will fight hard for you to receive the most compensation possible, including your:
Ensuring the highest possible recovery requires thoroughly assessing your physical, emotional, and financial injuries. We will work closely with you to document all of your costs and losses. Your compensation should cover everything you have had to spend to deal with the accident and all of the money you lost being out of work. We will also detail, as best we can, how your physical injuries have caused you physical pain and emotional distress. We will work with you and any relevant professionals to record the various ways your injuries have impacted your life.
Our lawyers will also review other important factors, including how insurers calculate damages for non-economic injuries, like your pain and suffering and mental anguish. Many insurers use a formula or multiplier. We will go over these calculations too, so you understand what an appropriate settlement amount for your case may be. This will also prepare you for the worst- and best-case scenarios.
What if You Were Partly At-Fault For Your San Antonio Car Wreck?
Whether or not you contributed to the accident matters a great deal. Texas law follows a modified comparative negligence rule. This means an insurer or court will compare each party’s degree of negligence. They will determine whether each of you are both at fault for the accident, and if so, to what amount. If one of you more at fault than the other? If you are 51 percent or more at fault for a crash, you cannot obtain compensation. If you are 50 percent or less responsible, you may obtain compensation. However, your financial recovery will be reduced by the percentage of your fault.
If you are worried about your responsibility for the crash, or you think you will be blamed, call us right away.
Our law firm also handle fatal accidents in and around San Antonio. If you lost a loved one in a car crash, call us right away. We will listen to your story and recommend what to do next. If there are signs of another driver’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct, we may recommend that you and your family consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Through a lawsuit and insurance claim, we can pursue compensation for you and other relatives. We may be able to obtain compensation for financial losses, such as the medical, funeral, and burial expenses. We can also pursue compensation for your practical losses and grief.
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations on car accident-related personal injury claims. This means, in most cases, you have up to two years from the date of the car crash to file a claim and pursue compensation for your injuries. If you file a lawsuit after that deadline, the court can dismiss it.
However, there are several exceptions to the statute of limitations. One exception, like the discovery rule, delays when the two-year period begins. Under the discovery rule, the clock does not begin to run until you are aware you are injured and that it was likely due to another person’s negligence.
Other exceptions may pause the clock, giving you longer than two years to file suit.
If you are worried about how long you have to file a lawsuit, contact us attorney right away.
After a crash, you may wonder whether you should hire a lawyer or not. To be sure, you should schedule a free consultation with us at Begum Law Group. If you have suffered only property damage and inconvenience, then we may recommend you move forward with an insurance claim without an attorney. Insurers routinely handle vehicle-damage only claims, and your vehicle may be repaired or replaced within a few weeks.
However, if you suffered injuries, you should have an attorney by your side. By hiring a lawyer, you increase the likelihood of receiving a payout for your injuries. You also improve the likelihood of maximizing that payout. Overall, you are more likely to gain a greater amount of compensation with an attorney’s help than without it.
of personal injury claimants with legal representation receive a settlement or award.
You should not be responsible for the negligent actions of another driver.
