There are very many drivers in the Rio Grande Valley, and you are probably one yourself. Let’s face it, there are more people who have a driving license than don’t. However, how many people ever think about what to do after a car accident until they have actually been involved in one? Not many.
But the fact is that you do need to know what to do after a car accident. The most important thing is to ensure the safety of yourself and your passengers, if any, and that is closely followed by the safety of the other driver or drivers involved and their passengers. Obviously, you need to call 911.
But then what? What should you do next?
This is something else that you may not have thought about, even if you have considered what to do after a car accident. You need to call an attorney. And not just any old attorney, but one that specializes in car accidents. That would be us here at Villarreal Law Firm because it is what we do. We help people who have been in car accidents – and in all sorts of other accidents too – because you have rights, but you may not be aware of that, and even if you are, you may not be aware of just what they are.
You May Be Entitled To Compensation
The fact is that if you have suffered injury in a car accident, or even if you have not suffered injury but your car has been damaged, then you are entitled to compensation from the other driver or drivers involved, and that is not paid by the driver but by their insurer.
And this is where things can get very awkward because insurance companies do not like to pay out. We may have mentioned this before, but it happens to be true.
Oh sure, they tell you that you are covered for this, that, and the other, but when push comes to shove and it is time to pay out, the insurance company will move heaven and earth to pay as little as possible, and preferably nothing at all, because it is in their own interests to do so.
Now if you do not understand all the terminology of insurance policies (you don’t do you?) then they will run rings around you. They employ very expensive lawyers whose sole job is to ensure that they pay the absolute minimum.
And this is why you need us at Villarreal Law Firm, because we do understand all the terminology and the tricks that they get up to, so we can fight them to get you the compensation that you deserve.
