Despite traffic laws and a legal duty to drive safely, many drivers cause pedestrian collisions in Texas each year. Pedestrians in San Marcos are not safe from distracted, negligent and reckless drivers. In 2017, 615 pedestrians died in accidents throughout the State of Texas. If you have an injury or lost someone in your family in a pedestrian accident, do not hesitate to contact us. The San Marcos pedestrian accident lawyers at Villarreal & Begum Law Firm are dedicated to upholding pedestrian rights.
When a motor vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the pedestrian can suffer many serious injuries. At Villarreal & Begum Law Firm, we have years of experience protecting the rights of the injured throughout Texas. We know how to prove injuries using medical records, x-rays, doctors’ letters, medical experts, photographs and other types of evidence. We can help clients with all types of personal injuries in San Marcos.
Many pedestrian accidents permanently alter the lives of those injured. You might suffer chronic pain or lifelong disability, for example, as an injured pedestrian. The lifetime costs of a serious pedestrian accident injury can climb into the thousands. If someone else caused your injuries, we believe that person should have to pay your bills. Our lawyers can help you seek fair compensation from the correct defendant.
Texas is a fault-based insurance state. The driver or party responsible for causing your injuries, therefore, will be financially liable for your damages. You will have the right to file an insurance claim with the company of the at-fault party in pursuit of financial compensation. Do not deal with an insurance company on your own as someone with serious injuries from a San Marcos pedestrian accident. The driver’s insurance provider will want to minimize your payout or avoid paying you completely. Instead, call Villarreal & Begum Law Firm for a free legal consultation. Our lawyers can review your case and explain your rights. We may also offer to take over insurance negotiations on your behalf.
If your case against a negligent driver succeeds, his or her insurance company may pay for 100% of your medical bills, both past and future. You may also receive compensation for damages such as physical pain, emotional suffering, distress and lost wages. In some cases, however, injured pedestrians will have to go to court in San Marcos to obtain reasonable compensation. A lawyer from Villarreal & Begum Law Firm can represent you at trial, if necessary.
Protecting your rights by hiring a personal injury attorney in San Marcos can be crucial for your future.
