As soon as you get into a Car Wreck in Dallas, you immediately are put in the negative. If your car is not driveable, you can’t get to work, which means you can’t pay your bills, which means things begin to fall apart. If you are injured, you can’t work, you can’t pay your bills, which means you can’t enjoy life. Many times we think we can handle these negatives ourselves. Sometimes we think we can “tough it out.” But every day that goes by is another day in the negative. When you call us we start the process of putting you back in the positive. It may not happen right away, but in the end, our one goal is to get you back to the positive and enjoying life again.
Car Wrecks happen every day, and insurance companies know every excuse in the book to not pay. They will ignore police reports, your statement, and witnesses. They will say you weren’t hurt if you put off going to the doctor. They will say you are faking if you go to the doctor. Anything they can do to keep their profits in the bank. Fighting insurance companies is what we do. We know what buttons to push, how to be a constant thorn in their side, and how to win.
Texas Car Wrecks Facts
Other Dallas Car Wreck Attorneys Will Not Discuss
Unfortunately, car wrecks are everywhere in the State of Texas. Not only are you likely to get into a car wreck at some point in time, but there are also a lot of misconceptions about what to do when you are in a wreck. Many people assume that if you are rear ended, the person that hit you is at fault, because that is the law. Not true. In fact, most insurance companies will fight against you even when their insured hit you from behind. Another misconception is that the insurance company will pay if you are not at fault. Also not true. Insurance companies do their best not to pay. So if there is any excuse to reduce the amount the insurance company has to pay, they will find it.
In 2017 there were 922,549 car wrecks in the State of Texas. When a crash report is written, most of the time the latitude and longitude of the location of the wreck is documented. Herbert Law Group created the map to the right to illustrate just how many car wrecks happened and where. As you can see, nearly every point of every major highway had a car wreck in one year’s time! Of course, not all of those wrecks ended in an injury. The map below shows the amount of report injuries per county in Texas:
- There were 342,293 reported injuries from car wrecks in 2017.
- Is your county represented on this map?
- The data shows us that the major metropolitan areas of Texas, namely Dallas / Fort Worth (DFW), Houston, and San Antonio have the most injuries reported from car wrecks, while the outlying counties have far less.
It is nearly impossible to avoid a car wreck if you live in a major city!
