Who will protect my rights after car accident injuries

Dallas motorists may be interested to learn that over 40 percent of all vehicle accidents that occur in the United States are rear-end accidents. While insurance companies are often eager to settle claims sooner rather than later, many lawyers advise victims of rear-end accidents not to accept any settlement in a hurry. It is not uncommon for the injuries suffered in this type of car accident to only become apparent over time. The full extent and severity of the injury may not be known for several weeks or longer.

A rear-end accident is usually not anticipated, and the whiplash effect that it typically causes may result in neck and spinal injuries that can have lifelong consequences. This will likely bring about ongoing medical expenses, and agreeing to a quick settlement may leave the victim with years of medical bills to settle. It is, therefore, imperative to obtain an accurate medical report regarding the injuries and the potential future need for medical care, including possible surgical procedures and rehabilitation.

To avoid being bullied into a quick and unrealistic settlement, victims of accidents may be well served by the services of a legal representative that is experienced in this particular field. The best candidate would be one who is not interested in quick settlements, but rather the protection of your legal rights, along with the aim to obtain the best possible settlement on your behalf. Such a person will want to ensure that all the facts of the case are considered before proceeding with settlement negotiations.

Residents of Dallas -- or the loved ones of deceased victims -- who have suffered injuries in a rear-end car accident caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party may want to pursue fair compensation for injuries suffered. While your legal counsel may recommend settling without litigation, he or she will be ready to take your case to civil court if a satisfactory settlement is not reached. Whichever way is chosen and so long as negligence is well documented, the victim may receive compensation for current and future medical expenses, along with other damages as allowed by state laws.
