Why You Should Let Us Deal with the Insurance Company
After a car accident, it may be tempting to accept the first settlement
offer you receive. However, you should know that the insurance company’s
only goal is to settle your claim quickly, and for as little money as
possible. They are NOT on your side – despite what they might tell you.
The only person you should trust after an accident is your attorney.
We know how insurance companies operate, and we know what tactics they
use to minimize, delay, and deny valid car accident claims. When you work
with The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC, we will fight to protect your rights
throughout every step of the process. If the insurance company won’t
offer a fair settlement, we’re not afraid to take your case to trial.
Texas Shared Fault Laws for Car Accidents
A very common tactic of insurance companies is to claim to you bear partial
responsibility for the accident in an attempt to reduce the amount of
compensation they owe. Even if it can be proven that you share some fault
for the accident, Texas law still allows you to file a personal injury
lawsuit. Under the modified comparative neglience rule, you can recover
compensation as long as you are found to be less than 50% responsible
for the accident.
Whatever percentage you are found at fault for the accident will be deducted
from the final settlement or verdict, giving you your total recovery.
For exampe, if you receive a $10,000 settlement from the insurance company
but are found 20% at fault for the accident, you will receive an $8,000 recovery.
