Why do I need an attorney for my Texas accident claim if the other driver was obviously negligent or reckless?

If you’ve been injured on the Sam Houston Tollway by a drunk driver, someone who was texting while driving, or someone who was otherwise distracted or reckless, you may wonder why you would look to an attorney for help. It seems clear to you—and probably to any reasonable person looking at the situation—that the other driver was obviously responsible for your injuries. However, when it comes to your Texas accident injury claim, proving negligence can be a lot more complicated than you might expect.

Unfortunately, it is likely that the insurance adjustor for the other driver will do everything in his or her power to pay you as little as possible for your injuries—including blaming you for the accident or luring you into tricks and traps that complicate and jeopardize your claim. Even in cases where it should be obvious that the other driver was operating recklessly, the reality of the claims process leaves many accident victims in over their heads and unable to get the compensation they need to move on after they’ve been hurt.
