Made a Mistake on the Road? We Can Still Collect Compensation

Man and woman at the scene of a car accident

Many people think that if they contributed to their car accident, they cannot receive compensation. This is especially the line of thinking for people who moved here from states where that is the law, like Virginia or Maryland. But here in Texas, car accident victims don't have to drive perfectly to win lawsuits.

That is because our state utilizes modified comparative negligence when adjudicating personal injury cases. This legal framework enforces that a driver can be compensated as long as the defendant in the case is primarily at fault for the accident, meaning the other driver, municipality, or parts manufacturer caused more than 50% of your wreck. 

The amount you are found to be responsible for really matters when determining compensation. For example, if you are determined to be accountable for 10% of your car accident, you can get 90% of the compensation. But if you are found to be responsible for 40% of your crash, you can only get 60% of the available pool. We will do everything we can to minimize your share of the blame.

You Are Under a Hard Deadline

Unfortunately, you don't have an unlimited amount of time to recover from your injuries before filing your personal injury claim. This is because statute of limitations laws set strict deadlines for when a lawsuit must be filed. If you miss this deadline, you miss your chance to receive compensation. Here are the two most important statute of limitations laws for car accident claims:

Personal Injury

A personal injury claim is the type of lawsuit filed by a surviving car accident victim to seek restitution for damage to themselves or their property. Texas provides two years from the date of a car accident to file a personal injury suit.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by grieving family members to seek compensation for the tragic loss of their loved one. If you are filing a wrongful death case in Texas, you have two years from the date of your loved one's passing.

Start Your Case Now Put Our Austin Car Accident Lawyers on Your Side

Starting your case now helps ensure you won't miss your deadline. It also allows our car accident lawyers to collect evidence while it is still fresh and to get you compensated as soon as possible. 

David C. Wenholz has been practicing law since earning his J.D. from the Southern Methodist University School of Law in 1990. Board-certified lawyer Mr. Dow has been in practice since 1997. This gives the partners at our firm more than 60 years of collective time trying and winning car accident claims.

I will recommend luke dow and his team to whom ever are in need.

How to Help Us Help You

Our attorneys are here to take care of every aspect of your case. That being said, there are some actions you can take to help us win as big as possible. 

Get Medical Help

Your health is of the utmost importance. Plus, the injuries from an auto accident are notoriously slow to develop. See a doctor to safeguard your health and generate medical records we can use to win your case. Not seeking medical attention can be misconstrued as evidence you were never really hurt.

Never Admit Fault

Saying sorry can feel natural. So can answering what seems like basic questions from an insurance company representative. Doing either of these things can work against you, as the defense will look to anything they can to take statements out of context and blame you for your wreck. Stay silent and let our lawyers do the talking for you.

Settling Fast is Risky

The other driver's insurance company is not on your side. They may offer a quick settlement that seems like a lot of money in the short term, but that does not truly quantify the broad range of losses you will suffer. If you have a brain injury or other long-term issue as a result of your car crash, you need the most compensation possible to protect you for life.

Our Austin law firm can stand up to their pressure and evaluate the circumstances of your accident to see if you should be offered significantly more.

Grateful for Austin's Thanks

Highly recommend Dave Wenholz and his team. No one likes to deal with legal matters (and with lawyers), but Mr. Wenholz is a nice guy and very competent. We wanted to go the least litigious route, so he helped us with mediation. Dave understands the art of negotiation and seems to really care about getting a fair outcome for his clients. He and his staff respond quickly to questions, and communication is great.
