This post serves to conclude and recap our series on the handling of Austin stop sign and intersection accidents. We felt it necessary to write on this topic as many victims are unsure of how to proceed after having been harmed by another’s negligence. The goal of our last several posts has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their situation and to assist them in making a more informed decision when selecting a personal injury attorney.
We have addressed several topics over our recent articles. Issues which we have analyzed include:
- Why intersection accidents involve liability disputes
- Steps which can be taken to prove fault
- How comparative fault applies in such cases
- Dealing with insurance adjusters after an accident
There are several reasons why accident victims must understand these topics. First, few types of auto accidents involve liability disputes as often as those which occur at intersections. This is due to disagreements over who had the right of way. Second, even if it is was not clear who was at fault it may still be possible to establish liability in such a case. Third, Texas’ comparative fault laws allow one to recover for their injuries even if they were partially to blame for the accident. Finally, retaining an experienced lawyer can help ensure that you are not taken advantage of by an insurance adjuster.
One point we have stressed through each of these articles is that it is crucial to retain the right representative. By hiring a lawyer experienced in handling such matters you help to ensure that evidence is properly collected, that all arguments regarding liability are made, and that your case is properly presented to the jury. If you retain a firm that is not experienced in handling such cases then you run the risk of not receiving the full compensation which you deserve.
