You have rights, and an experienced car accident attorney can help. Coby L. Wooten stands up for the rights of injured passengers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and throughout Texas. Contact us today to find out what our law firm can do for you.
We understand passengers’ legal rights in Texas
Under Texas law, passengers are almost always held blameless when involved in car crashes – the law presumes that fault for the accident lies with someone who was operating a vehicle at the time of the crash. Unless you actually did something to cause the accident, such as grabbing the wheel or obstructing the driver’s view, you cannot be held liable for any injuries sustained.
But that doesn’t mean getting compensation for your injuries will be easy. If there were multiple vehicles involved in the accident, liability may be disputed between the drivers. Other parties, such as a vehicle manufacturer, may also be involved. As a passenger caught in the middle of this dispute, it can be easy to feel lost and overwhelmed as the insurance companies try to settle your claim for as little as possible – or nothing at all. That’s why you need Coby Wooten on your side, fighting for your rights.
An experienced car accident lawyer can help
As your attorney, Coby Wooten will thoroughly investigate to get to the bottom of what happened and hold the responsible parties accountable. Even in a single-vehicle crash, understanding liability for the accident can be complicated, and the more vehicles, the more complex it will become. Coby will carefully review all applicable insurance policies and other sources of compensation to make sure you get every dollar you deserve.
We also understand that these cases can be particularly challenging when the at-fault driver is also the driver of the vehicle you were in. In some cases, this means taking legal action against a friend or family member. Remember, you are not trying to take your friend’s money – you are asking your friend’s insurance company to fulfill their obligation and provide the coverage that your friend has paid for. We can deal directly with the insurance company to protect your relationship with your friend.
If you’ve been hurt as a passenger in a car accident, we will fight for the compensation you need and deserve. Contact us online or give us a call today to schedule your free consultation with a skilled passenger injury lawyer.
