TYPES OF AUSTIN CAR ACCIDENTS
Car accidents come in all varieties. Which one fits your case?
Trucking companies and their insurance providers typically have damage control personnel who are trained to respond to accidents. In many cases an insurance adjuster will ask that you give a recorded statement about the accident and your injuries. In too many cases, truck accident victims unintentionally hurt their claims by making assumptions or incorrect statements about how the accident occurred, or even by downplaying their injuries.
Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries to the riders, and representing these claims requires extensive knowledge of the unique concerns that motorcycle riders face on a daily basis. Blind spots, vehicle speeds, and road rage can all affect motorcyclists more than they affect the average driver. Whether you were the rider, or the driver in a bike-on-car collision, our qualified attorneys are here to help lead you down the road to recovery.
Much like motorcycle riders, bicyclists are largely unprotected from the roadways and from passenger and commercial vehicles. While not all accidents involving bicycles are the fault of a motorist, a large percentage are, and those types of accidents often result in significant injuries, as well as financial and emotional damages. In residential areas, motorists account for about half of all bicycle accidents involving children under the age of 16.
The severe, debilitating, and permanent injuries that arise from alcohol related auto and truck accidents result in significant losses to the individuals involved and their families. Determining the appropriate value of a personal injury claim from an auto accident involving a drunk driver is complicated. Our car accident lawyers will deal with the insurance companies or litigators on your behalf if they are unwilling to settle your claim for a fair value.
Automobile defect cases are brought under the rules and principles of product liability law. In these and other car accident cases, looking to less obvious accident causes such as a malfunctioning seat belt or child safety seat, air bag, fuel tank, or other auto component requires car accident lawyers with the knowledge to understand these causes and a law firm with the resources to fight wealthy corporate defendants and teams of aggressive defense attorneys.
Uninsured and underinsured motorist accident cases often involve complex issues regarding coverage and obtaining the most compensation possible from all available policies. Only car accident lawyers who have successfully handled numerous uninsured and underinsured claims can get you the compensation you may otherwise not recover if represented by an inexperienced lawyer.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Austin car accidents can result in major changes to your life and the lives of loved ones. And the insurance companies often add to the stress and burden by short-changing you on their settlement offers. But you don’t have to play their game. Here is a quick overview of the general lawsuit process.
