Texas Car Accident Laws and Statutes.

The state of Texas has a statute of limitations for filing claims after a vehicle accident or traffic collision— 2 years from the day of the crash. This applies to pedestrians, drivers, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and passengers. You forfeit your right to a claim if two years have passed and you have not sought compensation from the at-fault party with the help of a personal injury lawyer.

However, if one were below the age of 18 at the time of the accident, then they would have 2 years from the day they turn 18 to file their injury claim.

The statute of limitations is also different for a wrongful death claim. The 2-year window begins at the time of the person’s death rather than the date of the accident. This can also be paused for up to one year.

Common Causes Of Auto Accidents In Dallas

Most car accidents boil down to a dozen or so common causes, including:

  • Intoxicated driving, wherein a driver is operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or other substances;
  • Distracted driving, where a driver may be texting, talking on the phone, or even eating while operating the vehicle;
  • Speeding, wherein the driver is going above the posted speed limit and putting those around them in danger;
  • Failure to obey traffic signals, including anything from yellow or red lights to “no turn on red” and “yield” signs;
  • Failure to take blind spots into account, meaning they did not turn their heads to check their blind spots before switching lanes;
  • Road rage, in which a driver may become enraged, violent, or erratic as a result of others on the road;
  • Failure to signal intentions, meaning the failure to turn on left and right blinkers before turning or switching lanes;
  • Tailgating, or following closely behind another vehicle in a dangerous manner;
  • Failure to yield to pedestrians and other cars as posted or required by law;
  • Vehicle mechanical defects, or poorly designed components of the vehicle;
  • Failure to properly maintain the vehicle, including tires, oil, windshield, and any other car component that can affect ability to drive;
  • Objects in the road, like roadkill, tires, or other miscellaneous items that may have fallen onto the road due to someone’s negligence.

Naturally, each driver will want to blame the other. In many cases, an accident can be the fault of more than one party, and liability may be apportioned among the parties involved. We work with accident reconstruction specialists who use scientific means for determining the true cause of an accident, determining liability, and assessing an injury claim.

Common Injuries Suffered in Car Crashes

How Our Dallas Car Wreck Attorneys Can Help With Your Case?

When you hire an auto accident attorney in Dallas, you should receive a comprehensive set of services that meets all of the needs that have arisen because of your auto accident. A top-tier Dallas car accident law firm should be able to handle the following tasks on your behalf:

  • Offer you a free consultation and provide a preliminary evaluation of your claim;
  • Investigate your car accident claim and calculate its monetary value;
  • Gather admissible evidence that can prove your claim in court or at the negotiating table;
  • Determine the identity of the proper defendant(s);
  • Make a formal claim to the insurance company that represents the defendant;

What You Should Do After a Collision in Dallas

The actions that you take (and refrain from taking) in the immediate aftermath of a car accident could exert a profound influence on your chances of eventually receiving full compensation. Following is a checklist of important tips:

  • Stay at the scene of the accident. It is a felony in Texas to leave the scene of an accident that involved an injury, a death, or significant property damage. Move the vehicles off the road so that they will not cause a traffic hazard.
  • Call the police to have them come to the scene if they are not already on their way. The police will fill out a police report.
  • Don’t apologize for the accident. This could be used against you later.
  • Call an ambulance if someone is injured. Seek immediate medical attention for yourself if you are injured.
  • Exchange contact and insurance details with the other driver.
  • Obtain contact details from any witnesses.
  • Take photos of the scene of the accident, the damaged vehicles, any injuries, and anything else of relevance.

Retain a lawyer for car accidents in Dallas, TX to help you press your claim. Choose wisely, because this could turn out to be the most important action you take in the entire case.

Our Successful Cases

Following are examples of some of our recent results:

Male client involved in a car accident as a pedestrian at a worksite. The motor vehicle rolled over his foot causing a crushed foot injury.

We were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $925,000.00
Client was injured as a result of a car accident. Liability was difficult on the case as both our client and the defendant stated that they had a green light at the intersection. There were no witnesses and no camera footage to prove who really had the green light. She sustained back injuries requiring her to undergo two surgeries to her back. We were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $835,000.00
Plaintiff was involved in a car accident and had disc bulges and herniations. He ended up having over 1 year of physical therapy and chiropractic treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much is it to hire a car crash attorney in Dallas?


    If you choose Brooks & Radchenko, you will pay nothing unless we win your case, either at the settlement table (hopefully) or in court. If we win, your legal fees will amount to a pre-agreed percentage of the amount of compensation that the opposing party actually pays. In other words, we don’t win unless you do.

  • How long does it take to receive an offer of compensation?


    You might receive an offer of compensation before you even leave the hospital. The faster you receive the offer, however, the less likely it is to be sufficient. Don’t accept a quick settlement offer. Talk to your lawyers and let them hammer out a settlement over a few weeks or months.

  • How much is my car accident claim worth in Dallas, TX?


    That is impossible to say without closely examining your case and perhaps performing an investigation. Some of the relevant factors include:

    • The seriousness of your injuries;
    • How long it will take for you to reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI);
    • Whether you will ever make a full recovery;
    • How long you will be out of work;
    • Whether you will be able to return to your previous job; and
    • How much suffering you endured.

    Contact a Dallas auto accident law firm for a more precise estimate.

  • How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a car crash in Dallas, TX?


    Generally, you have until two years after the accident to file a lawsuit. If your family member died in the accident, you have two years after the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Certain exceptions sometimes apply to these deadlines.
