Dallas Car Accident Lawyer

We know what to do after a crash

Our Dallas car accident attorneys know how frustrating motor vehicle accidents can be for everyone involved. Nobody plans on being in a car accident. But it’s something that happens every day. And when an accident happens, the consequences can be devastating.

When car accidents happen in Dallas, people often get injured, some seriously. They spend time in the hospital. Their car is gone. They can’t work. Bills keep coming in. But they don’t know how they’ll be able to pay them.

And all because another driver did something reckless or irresponsible.

The Dallas car accident lawyers at Tracey Fox & Walters know how a crash can affect your life. That’s why we want to help you get the car accident compensation you deserve for injuries like:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • And more

If you've been hurt in a car accident in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, or another Texas community because of someone else's negligence, you may be wondering what you should do next. Because another driver was careless, you might have extra bills to pay and can’t work because of your injury. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. That’s not right. Always see a doctor as soon as possible after a crash, then contact us for a free case evaluation to protect your rights and understand your legal options.

What types of car accident cases does our law firm handle?

Our law firm handles a wide range of Dallas car accident cases including, but not limited to:

What are common car accident injuries?

Some common car accident injuries you may experience include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Bruising
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Cuts and lacerations

Being involved in a car accident could leave you seriously injured, but sometimes symptoms don’t show up immediately. It's important to be aware of delayed pain and see a doctor. This way you can get ahead of an injury and be treated promptly and properly.

Do I need a lawyer after a car accident?

Technically, you are not required to have legal representation when filing a claim. But without a lawyer, you are giving the insurance company the advantage. They handle claims every day and use many different tactics to minimize car accident compensation. An attorney can help level the playing field and fight back against attempts to pay you less.

You can be sure that the insurance company handling your claim does have legal representation. It’s in your best interests to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

How can a lawyer help?

A law firm will have the resources to investigate your accident. This involves gathering evidence including any video evidence from traffic cameras. It includes reviewing police reports and medical records and interviewing witnesses. If needed, your lawyer can also consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists that can demonstrate car accident injury liability.

A lawyer can build a strong case, handle all the paperwork and deal with the insurance company on your behalf. If a settlement can’t be reached, your attorney can fight for you in court.

How long do I have to file a car accident lawsuit?

In Texas, to take legal action for a car accident, you have to file a lawsuit within a legal deadline known as the statute of limitations. Typically, this deadline is two years from the date of your car accident. However, there are exceptions and circumstances that could shorten this window of opportunity. It's crucial to meet this deadline because if you miss it, you could lose out on any chance to pursue legal action.

If you want to seek compensation for your injuries and damage, don’t delay. Waiting too long can also make it much more challenging to gather evidence and build a strong case. Consult with an experienced Dallas car accident attorney as soon as possible if you're injured in a car accident.

How much is my case worth?

Every case is unique and will have different results. Depending on the details of the case, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, vehicle damage, lost wages, pain and suffering and punitive damages. But there are many factors that may affect how much compensation you are able to recover.

These factors include the severity of your injuries, the strength of the case and the liability limits on insurance policies. An attorney can review your situation and tell you what you can expect.

"Our family sought help from Tracey & Fox after losing our mother in a horrible car accident caused by a drunk driver. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised at how we felt they took personal care of our case. They were diligent in every aspect. But we didn't just feel like legal clients, we felt like they cared that we got the justice we needed. I would highly recommend this law firm!
