civil law.jpegNegligence, which is a lack of care, causes about 90 percent of the car crashes in Tarrant County. So, most vehicle collisions are not unavoidable "accidents." In these cases, victims may be entitled to substantial compensation. This reimbursement usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.

This financial stress adds to the stress of the injury, making it difficult to recover. All the while, insurance company representatives call constantly with settlement offers. But you have no idea whether or not these offers are fair.
