Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney Serving Houston, Texas and Surrounding Areas
Many people do not realize the importance of consulting with an attorney after they have been in a motor vehicle accident. It is well established that insurance companies do everything that they can to minimize payouts for injuries, deaths, and damage to your vehicle, especially if the responsible party was uninsured. Only with the assistance of an attorney can you ensure that you are getting a fair deal.
The Oweyssi Law Firm makes a point of helping families hold those at-fault parties responsible for injuries, death, and other harms, and working on a contingency fee basis in order to ensure that clients only have to worry about their own recovery.
In Texas, in order for you to receive compensation after a motor vehicle accident, the other driver must be more than 50% responsible for the accident. In other words, if you are 40% at fault, you will receive 60% of your claim, but if you are 51% responsible, you could get nothing.
What if the Officer Issued Me a Ticket?
What many people do not realize is that just because they received a traffic ticket does not mean that they are legally to blame for an accident. A police officer who arrives on the scene might defer to what the traffic law dictates (for example, if you were hit in an intersection where you had a stop sign but the other driver did not, you were issued the ticket regardless of whether that other driver was speeding/in the wrong/etc.). The reason that you hire an attorney is precisely because this traffic ticket does not dictate the results of your case—it is your attorney’s job to argue that you were not at fault.
Still, insurance companies are known for relying on these types of tickets to deny or underpay claims.
