Texas & New Mexico Personal Injury Lawyers

Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer for a Car Accident Claim

After a car accident, your life may be filled with medical appointments and calls to insurance companies. These necessities are time-consuming and often frustrating, and the thought of adding other calls or meetings with attorneys can be too much. However, scheduling a free case review with an experienced Texas or New Mexico car accident lawyer from Farah Law can actually save you time and stress.

Your attorney can take much of the burden off your shoulders and help you seek fair compensation for your accident-related losses. There is no downside to calling Farah Law for a free consultation. Once we take your case, you will quickly recognize the benefits of having a lawyer on your side.

No More Insurance Calls

When you partner with an attorney following a car accident, they will handle all communication with the insurance companies, which could include the at-fault party’s and yours, depending on the circumstances of the event. The obvious benefit is that you no longer have to make those dreaded calls, but that is not the only one.

Victims often say – quite innocently – the “wrong thing” when talking to insurance representatives. There is a risk of having their words taken out of context or misinterpreted. These can be used as admissions of fault that could cost them a fair settlement.

The team at Farah Law knows what to say and what not to say to ensure you are treated fairly by the insurance companies and can get the coverage or compensation you are owed. We can skillfully negotiate with the insurance provider’s attorneys and adjusters to protect your rights and reduce the effect of any statements you may have made.

Lawyers Know the Law

Many car accident cases never make it to a courtroom. Still, the law plays a major role in every case outcome, and the car accident lawyers from our firm have a complete understanding of:

  • Car accident laws in Texas and New Mexico
  • Texas and New Mexico car insurance requirements
  • Texas and New Mexico personal injury laws

We will review all components of your case against these laws to defend you from unwarranted blame and unfair reductions in compensation or insurance coverage and provide evidence against the at-fault party. While many car accidents never get to court – some do. If you need a trial to get a fair settlement, our formidable team knows the rules of the courtroom and will fight fiercely on your behalf.

For example, Texas comparative fault laws only allow victims to pursue a car accident claim if they are less than 51% to blame for the accident, while New Mexico victims can file a claim no matter how much fault they bear. If a Texas victim meets the state’s threshold but still holds some culpability, they can pursue a claim but will see their compensation reduced by their percentage of blame.

New Mexico victims who hold fault face that same potential reduction. It is in the at-fault party’s best interest to lay as much fault on you as possible, but Farah Law will be there to challenge every accusation.

Productive, Case-Strengthening Investigations

To fight against false accusations and show the at-fault party’s negligence caused your car accident, you need evidence. Most victims do not have the resources or know-how to carry out a comprehensive accident investigation. As a result, their cases are built on limited evidence and thus generate limited compensation, at best.

Every Texas and New Mexico car accident attorney on our team knows how to investigate, knows what evidence to look for, and has access to all of Farah Law’s resources and connections. You can expect your attorney to:

  • Obtain all law enforcement reports
  • Access camera footage, possibly from nearby traffic and security cameras, witnesses’ recordings, and / or dashboard cameras
  • Interview witnesses
  • Consult, if needed, with accident reconstructionists, especially for more complicated accidents with less obvious causes
  • Review your medical situation and future care needs with your doctors and other medical professionals
  • Gather physical evidence from the accident scene and / or the cars involved
  • Investigate any other potential sources of evidence

A favorable case outcome depends on having solid, convincing evidence. You need enough to prove the at-fault party’s actions (or lack of action) were negligent and the direct cause of the accident leading to your injuries and losses. While you focus on recovery, your attorney will work diligently to find and present evidence you could not have discovered on your own.

Fair Settlement Demands

The medical bills, continuing care costs, lost wages, property damage, and other accident-related expenses can bring a substantial financial hit. There are also losses that have no actual bill, such as your emotional trauma, psychological distress, physical suffering and limitations, and changed quality of life.

Calculating the value of these varied losses is easy to get wrong if you, like most victims, do not have experience with these kinds of situations. The car accident lawyers at Farah Law have extensive experience valuing car accident claims. We will take a detailed inventory of your damages and arrive at a settlement amount to cover your costs, recover your losses, and deliver justice.

Less Stress for You

Putting your car accident claim in the capable hands of Farah Law ultimately means less stress for you. You will not have to find and interpret laws relating to your case or have to spend hours on calls with insurance agents. You avoid having to settle for less because you did not – or just could not – gather evidence to support your claim.

You do not have to worry that you said the “wrong thing” or undervalued your losses. You will not have to wonder if you accepted a settlement amount far less than you deserve and too low to cover your needs and regret putting your future financial stability at risk. Your car accident attorney will manage these concerns so you can focus on recovery with greater peace of mind.
