South Padre Island is a great spot for a vacation, especially in the Spring break and early Summer. As a result it gets full of people at these times and the knock-on effect of that is that there are more car wrecks at those times than the rest of the year, although, admittedly, the island has its fair share the rest of the year as well.
Whatever, if you have been injured in a car wreck there, you will need a car wreck lawyer in South Padre Island – or at least one who knows the area well. At Villarreal Law Firm we get lots of calls regarding wrecks there both from local residents and out-of-towners from Houston, San Antonio, and even out-of-state.
The problem that you have when you are injured in a car wreck that was not your fault is that you have to claim damages from the insurance company for the driver at fault, and insurance companies do not like paying out claims. It’s logical really, because the less they pay out, the more profit they make, and that is why they are very happy to pay aggressive lawyers for the sole purpose of delaying things and ultimately reducing the amount that they have to pay to the absolute minimum. They also employ what are euphemistically known as “loss adjusters”. Trust us: there is only one way those guys are going to “adjust” your loss!
That is why you need a car wreck lawyer in South Padre Island who understands the law and knows all the tricks and dodges that these lawyers will employ. Trying to take them on by yourself is rather the same as trying to fight Mike Tyson with one hand tied behind your back: they will simply flatten you.
Insurance Companies Do Not Like To Pay Out
They will try to swing things around and blame you for the accident, or at least try to put some of the blame on to you. Maybe you had your dog in the car, so they might say that the other driver heard it barking and your attention was diverted for a second. Indeed, it probably was barking, but that would be after the accident. No matter, they will try any sort of trick to reduce the amount of damages that the insurance company ultimately has to pay.
As a car wreck lawyer in South Padre Island, we understand all these dodges and our job is to ensure that you get every last cent that the law says is due to you. We know what those lawyers will say and do, and we know the law as well as they do, if not better.
