If you are involved in a car wreck anywhere in the RGV, from South Padre Island to Harlingen, San Benito to Brownsville, it can be extremely scary. Unfortunately, in South Texas, we get our fair share of them. There are two things that you need to do. First and foremost, you need to take every step that you can in order to ensure your safety and that of anyone else involved.
This is critical. Your health and that of everyone else is the most important consideration – regardless of whose fault it was.
When you have done that, there is another thing that you must do if the accident was not your fault. That is to find a personal injury lawyer for car accidents who can take up a claim on your behalf.
It is most likely that, if you have suffered any injury, the law will deem that you should be paid compensation, but what you can’t do is to decide for yourself the amount that you should be paid and then send an email to the other party’s insurance company because they will just laugh at you.
Yes, you may well have a claim for $100,000, but you can bet that the insurance company is not just going to write you out a check without a fight.
You Need To Understand How Insurance Companies Work
You have to understand how insurance companies work. As far as an insurance company is concerned, in an ideal world, they would like to insure people for anything that is never going to happen. That way, they would make a fortune out of premiums and never have to pay any claims.
OK, it doesn’t work like that, but the simple fact is that the less they payout, the more profit they make.
Oh, sure, they advertise how well they pay claims. Believe it or not, there was a very well-known insurance company in the UK that two or three years ago ran adverts on TV saying that they loved to payout. Of course, that is total nonsense, and they were forced to stop running such ads by the authorities.
The opposite is true: insurance companies hate paying out. That is why they employ very expensive lawyers to fight compensation claims. And that is why you need a personal injury lawyer for car accidents to fight them on your behalf.
So if you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault, come and talk to us at Villarreal Law Firm. We will fight the case on your behalf in order to ensure that you get the compensation that the law says is due to you.
Not only that, as personal injury car accident lawyers, but we also won’t charge you any fees at all for taking on your case. We only charge you a fee if, and when, we win your case for you. So you have absolutely nothing to lose.
