Compassionate Legal Representation For Injured Victims Of Car Accidents

The Law Offices of Steve Gibbins handles motor vehicle accident claims on behalf of injured plaintiffs throughout Texas, including in Austin, Dallas and Houston. If you have been harmed in a car, motorcycle or trucking accident caused by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered.

According to the Department of Transportation, there were 3,468 fatal car accidents in Texas in 2008, with an estimated total economic loss of $20.7 billion. Austin car accidents can be caused by negligent or reckless driving, defective auto parts, or hazardous weather or road conditions. Accidents can range from minor fender-benders to serious accidents causing catastrophic injuries or even wrongful deaths.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligent or wrongful acts of another, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and emotional damages. Texas uses a system of modified comparative negligence, meaning that a plaintiff can only recover if he or she was less than 50 percent at fault in the accident; once fault is established, the parties will often be left to deal with their insurance companies. The injured party makes a claim against the at-fault party's insurance, and the insurer either offers a settlement or denies the claim. In situations where a claim is denied or a settlement is insufficient, the injured party may choose to file for a lawsuit against the negligent driver and if applicable, his or her employer.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the negligent driver of another vehicle, The Law Offices of Steve Gibbins is here to help.
