Car accidents are unfortunately becoming an increasingly regular occurrence throughout Texas streets. While car manufacturers are constantly upgrading the safety features on their models to provide better protection to passengers and drivers, it is often difficult to protect against devastating car accidents which completely crush victims. Many of these accidents are easily preventable if car drivers continue to operate their vehicle as intended. However, in the age of increased distractions such as smart phones and GPS systems, it becomes easy for drivers to get side tracked from the road. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
Most car accidents are often tied to specific driver behavior or outside influences, including:
- Driver distraction
- Vehicle malfunction
In the majority of car accidents, one party is directly responsible for the injuries to the other party. While this can be relatively easy to note, especially after a police report is filed, in some cases it may lead to litigation to resolve which party was responsible for the other’s injuries. Texas is a comparative negligence state, which means that the injured party may be held up to 51% responsible for the resulting car accident, but may still recover damages for their injuries. However, the total amount of a settlement will be reduced based on the percentage of fault you are in the accident. If you are held to be more than 51% at fault for the accident, you will not be eligible to receive damages for your injuries.
