Fighting for Your Rights in Motor Vehicle Accidents
Carelessness and human error are behind most car collisions in Texas, a concept known in the legal world as negligence. Our attorneys at DC Law handle a wide range of vehicle crash claims, including those involving passenger cars, trucks, buses, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and more.
There are four elements you must prove to obtain monetary damages for your losses:
- You need to show that the other driver had a duty to drive safely
- You must prove that the responsible motorist failed in this legal duty
- You need to establish a direct link between the breach of duty and the accident in which you were hurt
- You have to show that you suffered losses because of your injuries
To illustrate how the four elements work, some examples may be helpful. A motorist may be negligent by:
In addition, distracted driving has become a major issue in Texas and the rest of the US. Any type of cell phone use interferes with a motorist’s attention, leading to serious crashes. Plus, there are many other types of distracted driving, such as eating, adjusting the radio, using a GPS, and many more.

How DC Law Can Help the People of Round Rock Receive Maximum Compensation
In many personal injury cases, including vehicle crashes, you’ll seek monetary damages by filing a claim with an insurance company. Insurers are notoriously difficult to deal with in the claims process, as they’re looking out for their own financial interests – not yours. It’s common for an insurance company to deny your claim or offer a lowball amount to settle. If the insurer won’t agree to a reasonable amount, you may have to file a lawsuit in court.
Whether we’re negotiating with an insurer or advocating for you in court, our team will fight to get the compensation you deserve. You may be entitled to:
- Medical costs for surgery, emergency treatment, physical therapy, pain medications, and related care for your injuries;
- Lost wages, if you were unable to work because of your injuries;
- Pain and suffering;
- Scarring and disfigurement; and,
- Losses based upon how your injuries affect your relationships with your spouse, children, and other loved ones.
If you lost a loved one in a fatal accident caused by negligence, our lawyers can explain your rights through a wrongful death action.
