Longview Traffic Accident Attorney

The simple fact is that the most common way in which people are injured is in an automobile collision. Automobile collisions can have many causes, including excessive speed, failure to keep a proper lookout, driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics and disobeying the rules of the road. In the past ten years, the volume and speed of traffic across East Texas has increased dramatically. A trip down Interstate 20 from Longview to Dallas bears that out. More and more people are being injured or killed on I-20, Highway 80 and Highway 59 as our roads become more congested. Thunderstorms and wet roads are a particular concern as motorists simply fail to slow down and lose control of their vehicles causing major pile-ups.

Help with your car accident injury claim

A person who receives serious injuries in an automobile collision faces many challenges, including repairing the damage to their own vehicle, trying to secure a rental car, gathering all of the medical bills and records pertaining to their claim, dealing with doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. It is a confusing process that most people are ill-equipped to handle, particularly in the face of mounting medical bills, lost wages and physical limitations. Many do not even know the different types of insurance benefits that are available to them. At the Law Office of Bradley T. Steele, P.C. in Longview, we assist help our clients throughout this process. We take the burden of handling all aspects of the claim so the client can concentrate on making a physical recovery from his or her injuries. Our job is to handle legal and financial issues, allowing our clients to focus on healing and taking care of their families.

Talk to a lawyer before talking to the insurance company

If you were injured in an auto wreck, it is important to report it to your insurance company immediately. However, before making a statement to the company's representative, or signing a settlement agreement, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury lawyer. You may not realize how serious your injury is, or be unaware of all benefits available. If you would like to speak with our attorney, please contact our Longview office and arrange a consultation.

Auto insurance accident coverage

Subrogation, third-party liability, uninsured motorist provisions, auto insurance policies covering household members, health insurance — our attorney coordinates all claims and negotiations related to a car wreck or truck accident in order to recover maximum compensation for our client.

Purchase maximum uninsured motorist coverage

Although it is a criminal offense under Texas law to drive without liability insurance, as many as 40% of the drivers you see on the road may be doing so. When one of those uninsured drivers causes a collision, those injured must rely on their own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UI/UIM) to pay medical bills. We encourage every motorist to purchase the maximum UI/UIM insurance that you can afford. That investment may save your family from financial disaster in the event you are injured by someone with no liability insurance.
