Texas Negligence Laws
Just because a person has not physically assaulted you does not prevent them from causing you harm. Often, a person can undergo tragic scenarios when someone else has failed to use the proper amount of care in their behavior. One instance of this is in car accidents. When you suffer from someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be paid a recompense, the least someone can do for your trauma and suffering.
If you have been in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, we can help demonstrate the way that the person has failed their duty, the manner that this breach of duty has caused your injury, and the amount of damage you have suffered. However, it is always important to remember that the state of Texas utilizes the limitation known as a “modified form of comparative negligence”. This law, which has also been referred to as “proportionate responsibility,” reminds the plaintiff if the injury was in any way partially self-caused, the amount of damages asked for will be reduced, since the fault is no longer just the negligent perpetrator’s.
What to Do After a Car Accident in San Antonio
Directly after you have been involved in a car accident, there are some important steps to take. First, of course, you need to stay safe. Immediately contact a hospital as well as 911 for medical help, making sure you, other passengers, and your car are out of the way of further injury.
Once you are certain you are safe, you need to collect as much information as possible. Get the names, phone numbers, insurance numbers, and license information of everyone involved. If there are any witnesses, get their contact information as well. Try to get as many pictures and videos of damage to the car, yourself, and any other parties involved. Make sure to never agree to sign anything until you have talked to your lawyer, and never admit fault.
