Ready To Help You Resolve Your Employment Law, Criminal Defense Or Personal Injury Case


Car crashes happen all the time, but it doesn’t make them any less frightening. Following a crash, there is often a lengthy physical, emotional, and financial rehabilitation period that can be exhausting. Most of us are just familiar with the basics of dealing with insurance companies, leaving us vulnerable to weak settlement offers. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, don’t hesitate to contact our law firm, Egbuonu Law, for a no-obligation case assessment.

Common Types of Texas Car Crashes in Texas

Depending on the circumstances, various kinds of car crashes each carry a danger of injury or even death. The following are some of the most common forms of accidents:

  • Head-on collisions: While they account for a very modest number of accidents across the country, they are over-represented in terms of deaths.
  • Rear-end accidents: This type of accident occurs when the following vehicle is moving too close to the lead vehicle and is unable to properly stop when the lead car abruptly stops or slows.
  • T-bone collisions: Such Accidents occur most frequently at junctions when one vehicle fails to give the right-of-way to another.
  • Sideswipe accidents: They occur when a vehicle fails to maintain its lane, drifting or heading into another traffic lane, or when one driver attempts to change lanes without first checking that the lane into which he or she is merging is clear.
  • Chain reaction crashes: When two vehicles collide, the impact of the crash forces one of the vehicles to collide with a third vehicle. A pileup occurs when multiple automobiles are engaged in a collision on a highway.

Immediate Steps to Take After a Texas Car Crash

  • Seek medical assistance.

If you or another person involved in the accident requires emergency medical treatment, seek it immediately. This includes actual or suspected brain injury, spine or back injuries, cracked bones, serious blood loss, major injuries, or internal injuries.

  • Call the cops.

Even when there are no serious injuries, calling the police is still a good idea. Having the police arrive on the scene is the best approach for the insurance company to get accident records.

  • Take photos.

Now is the time to take as many pictures of the accident site and car accident as possible with your phone.

  • Information Exchange.

All people involved in the collision, including the driver, witnesses, and passengers, should have their names, addresses, and phone numbers.

  • Consultation with an Attorney

This is still the most important stage. Car crashes can be tough to handle, and no one’s best interests are considered by any of the parties involved. Protecting your rights and talking with an expert in Texas is one of the most important things you will do after an accident.

Damages To Recover in Texas Car Crashes

Our Texas car crash lawyers at Egbuonu Law have extensive expertise in negotiating insurance settlements. We carefully examine your circumstances to estimate a reasonable value for your damages, which may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost Earning Potential

  • Disfigurement
  • Property Damage

Once we know how much your claim is possibly worth, we will have an open discussion with you about how negotiations with the insurer might go. We always make a good-faith effort to seek the highest feasible amount of compensation for our clients.

Statute of Limitation

In most injury cases, the statute of limitations in Texas is two years, but some exceptions might shorten or prolong the time you have to submit a claim. Minors, for example, have a longer period to file, which two years is following the day they reach the age of 18. If your claim is against a government organization, the statute of limitations is merely 6 months from the date of the accident.
