Take every necessary action for your own safety, that of your own passengers as well as the other vehicle.  Call 911 or the Brownsville Police Department at 956-548-7000.

     Q. What are three important tips on filing an auto insurance claim?

    A. Here it really depends. First, you can contact your own insurance company or that of the other party if they are at fault. Second, you can use their mobile app if desired. But, third, we highly recommend you reach out to a vehicle accident attorney. You have rights and you shouldn’t just give them up!

    Q. What is the most common injury in a car accident?

    A. Whiplash is seen as the most common injury in a car accident and we definitely get more than our fair share of whiplash accidents here in Brownsville. But other injuries are possible, and some may not show up immediately. Our team can refer you to doctors and chiropractors to determine the extent of any injuries and secure funds for paying for treatment.

    Q. How does a personal injury lawyer get paid?

    A. Most personal injury lawyers work on a “contingency basis.” This means that the lawyer gets paid if and only they win. You pay nothing if you do not prevail. You can speak to an attorney for a free consultation, and they can explain how payments work. Generally, it is “free” to you and the lawyers get paid if and only if they win in a court of law, such as the City of Brownsville Municipal Court

    Q. What is the average settlement after an injury car accident?

    A. That depends! It depends on the injuries, of course. It depends on who was injured and their age and occupation (“lost wages”). And it depends on the insurance company, policy limits, and assets of the responsible party. You can’t really say without reaching out to a top-rated accident lawyer who can assess the facts and the law and give you advice on settlement possibilities.
