Major Car Wreck in Texas

If you’ve suffered injury in a car accident and need help, you’ve come to the right place. Jim Adler & Associates is a 40-year car accident law firm that can get victims the payments they legally deserve. Sometimes victims need more than just medical help. To recover financial freedom, they need legal help. They need Texas personally injury attorney Jim Adler, a lawyer who focuses on car accident cases.

Texas car wrecks aren’t just a daily occurrence, but a minute-by-minute occurrence. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a reportable crash occurs, on average, every 71 seconds, and someone is injured every 136 seconds. A person is killed in a car crash, on average, every two hours and 36 minutes.

Sadly, auto accident fatalities occur each day in the United States. In 2013 there were 32,719 deaths, and at least 32,000 deaths have been recorded every year since 1950. In 2013, traffic fatalities in Texas alone totaled 3,382 deaths.

Types of Auto Accidents

The most common types of auto accidents include:

Traffic accidents also can involve auto-pedestrian accidents, drunk driver accidents and construction zone, road hazard and defective vehicle accidents. Crashes also can be multiple-vehicle or single-vehicle accidents.

Auto Accident Injuries

Auto accident injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to severe, debilitating and life-threatening injuries. Victims of such severe injuries face huge costs — costs which must be paid by the negligent person who caused the crash, or be paid by his or her insurer.

Severe car crash injuries can include burns, serious cuts, broken bones, spinal injuries, head injuries, traumatic brain injury and amputation or the loss of fingers, toes, feet, hands, legs or arms. Victims also can be paralyzed or suffer damage to internal organs, including vital organs such as the heart.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 2.3 million people in America suffered auto accident injuries in 2012.

Medical Attention

Victims of auto accident injuries should seek medical attention as soon as possible after their crash, not just to treat their injury, but also to record and document their injury and their treatment for future legal claims.

Waiting several days or longer after a crash to see a doctor can undercut your claim for injury damages, since defendants could argue your injuries arose after the crash or weren’t severe enough to merit immediate medical attention.

All records of injuries and treatments should be maintained and kept for possible future use in a car wreck accident lawsuit or settlement.

Insurance Claims & Adjusters

Innocent persons injured in an auto accident can seek insurance claims from the at-fault driver’s liability insurance provider. But that means dealing with insurance adjusters, whose job is to settle the case for as little money as possible for their employer — the insurance company.

Victims may be offered a quick settlement for far less than they deserve, or they may have their claim delayed or denied outright. A knowledgeable accident attorney who has experience dealing with insurance adjusters can help claimants seek the best possible settlement for their claim.

Our car accident lawyers are experienced in dealing with insurance companies, which often try to deny, delay or underpay in order to keep policy payments for themselves.

Finding the Best Car Accident Attorney

Of the 232,041 persons injured in Texas car crashes in 2013, 89,270 suffered a serious injury. Serious injuries such as amputation, paralysis, burns, broken bones or brain damage can be debilitating, lifelong injuries, and that means they can be extremely costly. Innocent victims of bad drivers shouldn’t have to pay those costs. Instead, they can engage a car accident lawyer to help them recover economically, seeking payments for their lost present and future wages, their ongoing medical expenses and their pain and suffering. Jim Adler & Associates is a law firm that has helped thousands of injured Texans receive the injury payments they legally deserve.
