Do I Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident in Houston, TX?

If you ask the insurance adjuster, they will likely tell you that you do not need an attorney to file an insurance claim. Technically, they are correct. No law requires you to have representation before filing an insurance claim.

However, that does not mean filing a car accident claim without a lawyer is in your best interest. The insurance company has a team of experienced, highly-trained insurance professionals protecting it from liability. You deserve the same. 

Unless you understand Texas tort laws, insurance laws, evidence, and damages, you are at a considerable disadvantage if you file a claim without an attorney.

Factors That Indicate You Need a Car Accident Lawyer in Houston as Soon as Possible

All accident victims benefit from talking with an attorney during a free case review. An attorney might review your case and explain why your case does not require legal assistance.

These situations are complicated issues that could create problems in your case. The sooner you hire a personal injury lawyer in Houston, the better your chance of recovering fair compensation.

  • You sustained catastrophic injuries and/or permanent impairments
  • Your child was injured in a car accident
  • The government is involved in your case
  • You don’t understand the legal requirements for negligence and liability
  • The insurance company refuses to investigate your claim, offers a low settlement, or denies your claim
  • The insurance company or another party is blaming you for the crash through a theory of comparative negligence
  • You do not know how much your economic and non-economic damages are worth or what damages you can receive for a car accident claim
  • Your accident involves an uninsured driver, hit-and-run driver, or drunk driver
  • You are unsure about the deadline to file a claim or lawsuit under the Texas statute of limitations
