Remember the video, Three Points to every Personal Injury Case, located on my home page? That is where you must start.
1. Are you at fault?
2. is there insurance on the other side (or in the alternative, do you have Uninsured Motorist Coverage with your own insurance)?
3. And most importantly are you Injured?
If you have all three elements, you have a good case and you should seek legal counsel. If you are unclear as to fault or insurance, you should still call me at 512-472-FUNK and I would be glad to talk to you and explore the facts of your case. What do you have to lose? I would be honored to speak with you and the call doesn’t cost you a dime.
However, if you are not injured and its simply a property related matter, then you likely can handle the matter through the insurance company directly.
Just be careful, because if you give a recorded statement stating that you are not hurt, and only later realize that in fact you are injured, you may have damaged your case. Its best to be certain that you are not hurt before speaking directly with the insurance company.
If you are hurt or suspect you are injured, call us immediately, and I will be glad to go over all your legal options.
