Karnes County Car Wreck Injury Lawyer

Attorney for Car Accident Victims in Karnes City, Texas

Getting injured in a car wreck can have devastating consequences, including costly medical bills and long-term effects on your life, health, and well-being. When a car crash is caused by the negligence of another driver, many injury victims are left wondering how they can hold the driver accountable and recover compensation for their losses. Fortunately, it is often possible to do so through a personal injury claim.

Car accident victims seeking compensation for their injuries should work with a personal injury attorney who can aggressively represent their interests. At The Bettersworth Law Firm, our attorney, James Bettersworth, has over 20 years of experience serving injury victims in South Central Texas and helping them achieve fair compensation through settlements and trials. He will provide you with the personal attention you need as he works to resolve your case.

Common Causes of Karnes County Car Crashes

If you have been injured in a car accident, your attorney can help you determine whether another person's negligence is at fault. This is often the case when a driver's carelessness or dangerous behavior puts you and others on the road at risk. When such negligence results in damages, the driver may be held liable, and they may be required to pay compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other damages.

Some of the most common examples of negligence in car accidents include:

  • Drunk or impaired driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failing to follow traffic laws
  • Failing to account for unsafe driving conditions

Accidents tend to be more common on busy roads such as Highway 80 and Highway 181, as well as nearby Interstate 37 and I-35. We have experience representing clients in a wide variety of accidents, including rear-end and head-on collisions, hit-and-run accidents, and crashes involving big-rig trucks and motorcycles. We strive to approach each case with attention to detail in order to understand its unique elements and determine the best way to address them.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

It is important to know how to respond to a car accident so that you have the best chance of recovering the most possible compensation for your injuries. Getting medical care as soon as possible, even for seemingly minor injuries, is crucial, as is notifying law enforcement about the crash. If you are physically able, it is also a good idea to start collecting evidence of the crash and exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver. Hiring a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the crash will help you understand the process of pursuing compensation and plan your best course of action. Your attorney can also help you gather and preserve additional evidence to establish another driver's negligence, including camera footage, police reports, and witness testimony.

Many car accident injury claims can be resolved through a settlement with the at-fault driver's insurance provider. Your attorney will represent you in negotiations to pursue fair and full compensation for your damages, from medical bills and property damage, to lost wages due to missed time at work, to non-economic damages for physical and mental pain and suffering. If the other driver lacks insurance, it may be possible to recover compensation through your own uninsured motorist coverage. Alternatively, if a fair insurance settlement is not possible, your attorney can fight on your behalf in court to achieve a favorable verdict.
