No one plans to get into a car accident, but there is a high likelihood that drivers will get into a crash at least once in their lifetime. When such accidents occur, several things could follow immediately — from getting medical treatment to starting a compensation claim against the person who caused the accident.
Insurance companies are not always trustworthy and try to trick many victims into accepting low settlements that can barely pay their medical bills. This is why you should never sign anything without speaking to an attorney.
Contact Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law before you sign any settlement agreements, no matter how friendly the insurance company representative is. Our car accident attorneys will fight to protect your rights and secure a favorable outcome.REQUEST CONSULTATION
Many car accidents leave victims in dire straits, with financial and emotional impacts. Injuries sustained after a crash, like broken bones, a spinal injury, a head injury, or crush wounds, can leave you disabled or disfigured. This means you might be unable to return to your pre-accident life or to make a living. You could also develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suffer mental anguish and emotional distress because of the crash.
If you fail to file for compensation from the at-fault party, you might be unable to get your life back on track. This is why we always advise accident victims to fight for their rights and obtain a settlement from the person responsible. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone, as our team at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law can help.

As a car accident victim, you have several rights that you can exercise without fear of intimidation from insurance companies. For instance, you do not have to make a statement to the insurance company immediately after the crash or sign a settlement agreement, even if they bug you to do so. Instead, retain the services of a lawyer as soon as possible.
It is your right to pursue damages against the party or parties responsible for your accident. In Texas, victims are entitled to economic and non-economic damages, which cover their medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, etc. If you lose a loved one, you can also take legal action and recover compensation, including funeral and burial expenses. In some cases, you might get punitive damages, especially if the at-fault party was grossly or intentionally negligent.
Not all car accident cases are straightforward; there are instances where it is challenging to know who to file a claim against. This is especially common in multi-vehicle cases. The first step to knowing who is responsible for an accident is determining whether a driver was negligent. This negligence manifests in the form of drunk driving, distractions, speeding, running red lights, and other reckless actions. Our attorneys at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law possess the skills needed to identify at-fault parties. We know the different elements of negligence and how to prove them and will ensure the at-fault parties do not get away with causing the crash that harmed you.

Some clients do not come to us at the beginning of their claim but wait until things go wrong. If the at-fault party’s insurance company denied your initial claim, don’t fret, as all hope is not lost. Our car accident lawyer will assess the reason for the denial, fix any issues that caused the denial, and negotiate a new settlement. If the insurance company still refuses to settle, we will file a personal injury lawsuit in court.
Our team at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law is composed of seasoned negotiators and trial lawyers, including some who are certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, so you stand a better chance of changing a denied claim to a settlement when you have us representing you.
Over the years, we’ve seen insurance companies deny accident victims compensation for several reasons that border on bad faith. While there are several justifiable reasons for a claim denial, insurers often use unjustified ones. In cases where they do not deny claims, insurance companies tend to offer lowball settlements.
Lowball settlements are barely enough to cover your medical expenses or other losses. At times, the at-fault party’s insurer might mislead you, asking you to sign a release form that states it is only for property damage. This frees them from all other obligations to you. Don’t let this happen to you!
Contact Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law. We do not back away from a fight with insurance companies and will keep fighting until we secure a favorable outcome. Even if you signed a settlement and accepted compensation, there is still hope if we can prove you were misled. However, don’t make the mistake of dealing with the insurance company alone twice.
