The largest percentage of personal injury claims requiring the assistance of an injury lawyer come from motor vehicle collisions involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. While many assume that their car accident claim will be handled in an appropriate manner by the insurance carrier of the responsible party, they do not know that, under Texas law, the prohibitions against bad faith insurance practices only apply between the insurance company and its own insured. While Texas courts recognize that an insurance company has to deal in good faith with its insured, the courts have not recognized any duty to treat the insured’s car wreck victim in a similar manner. Not only does the negligent party’s insurance carrier not owe the car wreck victim such a duty, the car accident victim is forced to sue the negligent party (not the insurance company) if the claim cannot be resolved fairly, even though it is ultimately the insurance company that has to pay—not the individual person. Texas law also states that the jury is not to be informed of the fact that the negligent party has insurance to cover the claim. For more information concerning car, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, eighteen wheeler accidents or wrecks caused by drunk drivers, please view the menu bar to the left.
Defective premises or attractive nuisances, such as an unlocked swimming pool gate, are also a major cause of personal injuries and deaths. We have also represented numerous dog-bite victims. It seems that drowning cases and dog bite cases often involve small children. Cases involving children require not only experienced litigation attorneys, but experience in protecting the child from unnecessary involvement in the legal process. For information concerning disability benefits claims, Social Security Disability claims, premises cases, dog bites and the claims of children, please view the menu bar to the left.
Since insurance carriers representing the person at fault have many of the cards stacked in their favor, it is important that you know your rights before dealing with the other party’s insurance carrier.
