Comprehensive legal services following your San Antonio vehicle accident
In the immediate aftermath of a car crash, you may be wondering what to do. Your first concern is for your safety, but it’s also important to do what is necessary to protect your rights in any future litigation. Unfortunately, in those chaotic moments, it’s easy to forget steps that could help you later on. One step you must take is to contact an auto accident attorney as soon as possible.
At the Law Offices of Marion W. Cain, we cut no corners when investigating and building a claim for compensation. We have extensive experience proving liability for auto accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents caused by common driving errors, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Following too closely
- Reckless driving
However, we draw on many resources to strengthen your case for recovery. We may hire experts to reconstruct the accident, biomechanics to tell us if there are any defects in the vehicle, and/or highway traffic engineers to search for hazardous conditions in the road or roadside.
Ms. Cain also relies on her background as a registered nurse to question treating physicians and medical experts about the extent of your personal injury and your prognosis for recovery. We have helped numerous clients recover full and fair compensation from serious injuries, including:
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue and whiplash injuries
- Spinal trauma and paralysis
By carefully assembling evidence of fault and verifying the true extent of your injuries, we work to build a compelling case that delivers optimal results.
Legal obstacles to your recovery in San Antonio, Texas
The Texas Department of Transportation reports that 246,335 people were injured in vehicle accidents in the Lone Star State in 2015, with 17,011 of those injuries regarded as serious. Perhaps more telling is this fact: there was not a single day in 2015 that a person was not killed in a traffic accident in Texas. However, the fact that a person is injured is no assurance that he or she will receive compensation. The at-fault driver may have no insurance or insufficient coverage to pay for your losses. The Insurance Information Institute estimates that 13 percent of drivers in Texas are without liability insurance. That’s greater than a one-in-eight chance that the driver who hits you will be uninsured.
If the driver is insured, the insurance company will defend the case aggressively, hoping to limit or eliminate altogether any payment to you. One tactic that insurers use is to try to shift blame for the crash from the defendant to the plaintiff. Under Texas’ comparative negligence law, your recovery can be reduced in proportion to any blame you bear for the accident. And, if you are more than 50 percent at fault, you can recover nothing at all.
For all these reasons, it’s vitally important to have a capable and experienced auto accident attorney on your side.
