Car Accident Lawyer Pearland TX 

Car Accident Lawyer Pearland, TX - Loading broken car on a tow truck on a roadsideA Pearland, TX car accident lawyer knows just how devastating car accidents can be. In fact, according to National Safety Council (NSC), almost five million people each year consult with medical professionals for injuries they have sustained in crashes. Sadly, more than 40,000 of those victims do not survive their injuries. If you’ve been injured, our car accident attorney can help, reach out to Keith B. French Law, PLLC today.

In the majority of car accidents, there is one at-fault driver who was negligent or reckless in their behavior, resulting in the crash and subsequent injuries. Some of the more common of these behaviors include engaging in distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, or disobeying the posted speed limit or some other traffic law.

Holding Negligent or Reckless Parties Responsible

If you either know or strongly suspect that another’s actions or inactions directly contributed to the cause(s) of your crash, please connect with a trusted Pearland, TX car accident lawyer at Keith B. French Law, PLLC to discuss your legal situation. Once we have a full understanding of the circumstances that led to your collision, the kinds of harm you’ve suffered, and the losses you’ve incurred as a result of your injuries, we’ll be able to provide you with objective, personalized, professional guidance.

We don’t believe in “selling” our services. We believe in empowering injury victims to make whatever informed choices best suit their needs, goals, and priorities in the wake of an injurious crash. Know that we will never push you to take legal action. If we believe that it may not be worth your effort to file a lawsuit, we’ll tell you so. If we genuinely believe that you could benefit from pursuing any compensation to which you are rightfully entitled, we’ll inform you of that professional opinion as well.

If you are in a strong position to file legal action, we’ll work to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. This effort will necessarily involve proving that any defendant named in your lawsuit:

  •       Owed you a legal duty of care
  •       Violated this duty by engaging in negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous conduct
  •       Directly caused your injuries due to their conduct

These legal standards are complex and can be difficult to meet. At every step in the legal process, we’ll explain what we’re doing on your behalf and why we believe that our efforts are most likely to be effective in achieving your specific goals for your lawsuit.

Filing for Workers’ Compensation Benefits

It is also worth noting that it is particularly important that you contact a respected Pearland car accident lawyer at our firm quickly if your accident was work-related. You may also be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits because of your harm but if you don’t take certain steps within a matter of days, you may be barred from obtaining these potentially valuable benefits.

Seeking an Insurance Settlement

The dedicated legal team at Keith B. French Law, PLLC can also assist you with obtaining a fairly-valued insurance settlement. Insurance claims adjusters are generally trained to minimize the compensation paid to claimants because insurance companies are for-profit businesses and they aim to cut costs when they can. Our legal team understands how to secure fairly-valued compensation despite this considerable hurdle.

You Don’t Have to Navigate These Challenges Alone

Between dealing with insurance representatives, filing a lawsuit, and/or filing for workers’ compensation benefits, managing the legal aftermath of a car accident can be stressful, complicated, and time-consuming. Know that you don’t have to shoulder these burdens alone. Allow a Pearland car accident lawyer at our firm to handle this heavy lifting so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Defective Parts or Design

However, one other frequent cause of car accidents is a defective vehicle part or design. Victims of these types of crashes may be surprised to learn that they have every legal right to pursue damages against the vehicle manufacturer or other liable party.

Dangerous and Defective Vehicle Parts and Design

In many cases, the defective car part is not discovered until after the vehicle is on the market and multiple consumers have filed complaints citing issues – and often injuries or death – because of the defect. Some of the more well-known of these cases over the past several years include:

  • The Takata airbag defect recall – More than 65 million vehicles recalled to date. Recalls are still ongoing.
  • The GM ignition switch defect recall – More than 2.5 million vehicles recalled.
  • Toyota faulty window switch – More than 6.5 million vehicles recalled.
  • Fiat Chrysler stuck cruise control – More than 5.3 vehicles recalled.
  • Ford loose steering wheel bolt defect – More than 1.3 vehicles recalled.

As a Pearland car accident lawyer can explain, each one of the above defects resulted in injuries and even death to victims. Even more disturbing is that in some recalls and defective parts/design issues, the manufacturer knows of the danger but sells the vehicles to the public anyway.

Recovering Damages

Texas law allows any victim who is injured in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence to pursue a car accident claim. Although it is always beneficial to have a car accident attorney in these cases, they are usually fairly routine legally to litigate. However, when the negligence party is a vehicle manufacturer, the litigation can be much more complex. Instead of going up against a vehicle driver and their insurance company, the victim is now facing an entire corporation and its massive legal department. Having a dedicated car accident attorney who is experienced in these types of cases is essential to a successful conclusion.

French Law, PLLC to schedule a free case evaluation with a seasoned Pearland car accident lawyer and find out what type of legal recourse you may have for obtaining financial compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional anguish, scarring, disfigurement, and more.
