who is at fault in a car accidentIn a perfect world, everybody would play fair. Unfortunately, this is far from a perfect world. In that hypothetical perfect world, you would receive a fair settlement from an insurance company after a car accident when you're not at fault. The responsible party and their insurance company would look at the facts and compensate you appropriately based on those facts.

But as we said, this is not a perfect world. And that is why it is important to hire a Houston car crash lawyer after an accident—even if the accident was not your fault.

Insurance Companies Are Focused on Profits

No matter how cute their spokes-characters are, insurance companies are primarily interested in turning a profit. And that means minimizing the amount they pay out to claimants. Often, an insurance company will offer you a fast payout in the hope that it will appeal to you enough that you won't question the amount.

When an insurer does that, the company is almost certainly trying to get you to accept a lowball offer.

Instead, you should hire a Houston car crash lawyer to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf—and to take them to court to get a fair settlement if necessary. Your attorney will investigate the crash and fight for a fair settlement that takes into account the full extent of your current and future expenses and losses related to property damage and injuries sustained in the accident.

You Can Afford a Houston Car Crash Lawyer

You might be thinking that taking the first offer might be a better financial move than paying for a Houston car crash lawyer. After all, lawyers are expensive, right?

Not in this case. Our lawyers will work on contingency—meaning that the lawyer does not get paid unless they win. That means you can, in fact, afford a Houston car crash lawyer. It also means that your attorney is motivated to make sure you receive the best settlement possible.
