Proving Fault in a Car Accident Claim Case
Fault is the determining factor in any personal injury claim case. In order to establish the fault of the other party, you must be able to provide evidence that supports the assertion, such as:
- Police and medical reports
- Witness statements
- Photos and videos of the accident scene, injuries and property damage
- Expert testimony
Consult with an attorney to get started on an investigation into the circumstances of your crash.
Dealing with Insurance Companies after a Car Accident in Dallas
It is extremely important to keep in mind that the opposing insurance company is not on your side, at all. They only have their own interests in mind, so you should do everything possible to preserve your own.
You are not required to speak to the insurance adjuster. In fact, it is well within your rights to tell them to speak to your lawyer when they contact you. Don't believe them if they say otherwise. They only want you to say something that could be used to weaken your claim down the line. Don't even give them the chance.
Furthermore, consult with your attorney before signing anything and be sure to consult with your attorney anytime you have a question or concern. Do not feel as if you're being a pest; it is the attorney's job to provide you with legal guidance. Plus, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Q: What damages can I recover in a car accident injury claim?
A: Depending on the extent of your damages and your attorney's ability to prove them, you may recover the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Wages lost during recovery
- Property damage (vehicle)
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
Q: Should I communicate with the opposing insurance company?
A: No. You have no obligation to contact the opposing insurance company. You also have no obligation to speak to an insurance adjuster if one calls you. Exercise your right to avoid communication and relay all calls to your attorney. If you speak with the insurance adjuster yourself, you may say something that can and will be used against you down the line. Remember, the opposing insurance company does not bear your interests in mind, not at all. They are concerned only about their profits. So don't take the risk of speaking with them.
Q: I need medical treatment but can't afford it. What can I do?
A: Although you have the right to recover the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical expenses from the at-fault party, the opposing insurance company has no obligation to pay for the expenses as they are incurred. This may put you in a bind if you have no health or injury protection insurance of any kind. However tempting it may be, do NOT settle for less than you deserve. Instead, contact a reliable car crash lawyer for advice on deferred payment plans or other paths to medical treatment.
Q: What if the liable person has inadequate insurance or no insurance at all?
A: Unfortunately, your options may be limited, depending on your insurance policy. If you have collision and underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage, you can recover vehicle and personal injury damages, respectively. However, the amount you receive cannot exceed your policy limit. If you don't have such coverage, you may be out of luck. You should explore all of your options with a trusted attorney.
Q: What are the top 10 dangerous intersections in Dallas?
In 2011, there were 35,273 motor vehicle crashes with 170 fatalities and 7,495 serious injuries in Dallas County, Texas. One of Dallas’ intersections made the list of the nation’s 10 most dangerous intersections. Many other Dallas intersections have had car accidents that resulted in fatalities and numerous injuries.
Intersections are so dangerous since it’s easy for a driver to run a red light, especially if there is a lot of traffic, and the driver is in a hurry. Also, since pedestrians cross at intersections, there is a higher chance of pedestrian accidents at intersections.
To help you and your family be safe when driving around Dallas, here are the top 10 dangerous intersections in Dallas:
- TX-121 and Preston Road intersection: was rated by State Farm as the 8th most dangerous intersection in America
- I-35 and I-635
- Hebron Parkway and Highway 121
- Hebron Parkway and Old Denton Road
- Park Lane and Preston Road
- Belt Line Road and MacArthur Boulevard
- Coit Road and I-635
- North Dallas Tollway and Parker Road
- TX-121 and Custer Road
- TX-121 and North Dallas Tollway
Some tips for driving through intersections are to wait for a moment when the light turns green to avoid being hit by any cars flying through a red light. Be extra alert to the roadway signs before you get to an intersection, so you can know ahead of time where the turning lanes are, and if you are allowed to turn on red, etc.
