In 2016, in Brownsville, there were 62 car accidents resulting in 70 serious injuries. There were ten fatal crashes during that year. Car crashes happen, you don’t want them to happen to you, but it’s not entirely in your hands. If the other driver is guilty of reckless driving and collides with your vehicle, then what do you do?
The first thing to do is to get in touch with a car wreck lawyer. The Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr. will handle your Brownsville car wreck case and work towards the most favorable solution for you. After a car wreck, expenses mount and do so all of a sudden. These include medical bills and vehicle repair costs. Accident victims and their loved ones are scarcely in a position to take steps to control costs. Insurance companies use this time-frame to try and get the injury victim to settle for a small claim amount. This is where our services can be invaluable.
Our research shows that the following roads are ones with a high likelihood of accidents happening; Route 48 that heads out to Port Isabel from Brownsville as well as the routes along East and West University Boulevard are roads to avoid, if possible.
If, despite, all your precautions, you end up with a car wreck that is not of your making then we can help you with the four crucial elements essential in proving negligent driving by the other party. These are the other driver’s legal duty to exercise the necessary degree of restraint when driving on the road. We will do our best to prove that the driver in question did not exercise the necessary due diligence and this breach led to the accident. It is our job to show that you wouldn’t have been injured if the said breach had not occurred. We will elaborate how the injury has affected you mentally and physically, as well as drained you financially.
Dereliction of duty while driving or breaches include dangerous lane changes, speeding, disobeying traffic signals, drunk driving, neglecting to switch on indicators when turning, distracted driving, etc.
In our experience, personal injury lawsuits resulting from car wrecks can vary depending on the cause of the accident. Head-on collisions, rear ending other vehicles, vehicle rollovers, broadsiding a vehicle, single vehicles running off lanes, etc. are common accident types that we follow up on for our clients.
The type of accident determines the ease or difficulty with which accountability can be established. We know how to approach a case depending on the cause.
When you’re involved in a car accident, apart from immediately calling your lawyer, you must also call 911 for an ambulance, if required; take photos of the accident site and all involved; obtain addresses of the other involved parties, if possible, and do not feel pressurized by the questions of the at-fault party’s insurance provider.
Bringing the guilty party to justice and ensuring that you are awarded fair economic and non-economic damages is our priority. We know how to present strong proof to establish non-economic damages, such as emotional distress and suffering.
There are many things that tie in with the entire process of getting justice for you in a Brownsville car wreck case.
