The big insurance companies are out for profit and their insurance adjusters are often paid bonuses when their department pays out less than expected. As a result, insurance adjusters will use every trick in the book to minimize your claim or to deny it outright. Without Alford & Clark, the adjusters will not show you the respect you deserve. Make them take you seriously - put Alford & Clark in your corner for your fight against the insurance companies. Call us now for a free, confidential consultation. Our car accident attorneys are on call – 24/7 – and are happy to answer any questions absolutely free of charge. If you decide to hire Alford & Clark, you will never pay us out of your own pocket and we will never take a percentage of the money paid to repair or replace your car. That's because - unlike some other law firms - our attorney fee is only a percentage of case winnings from the injury side of your case. Best of all, there is zero risk to you. If we don't win, no matter how much we spent fighting on your behalf, you will never owe us a dime. We only get paid when we win your case.
I've been in a serious accident, what do I do?
The car insurance industry is competitive, and the way these companies make a profit is through claim denial and the underpayment of claims. These companies handle thousands of car wrecks every single day, and will use every trick in the book to minimize your claim or to deny it outright. After a serious accident, in order to protect yourself and your rights, you should:
Immediately contact the police and emergency medical services
Immediately seek medical attention for your injuries
Immediately contact Alford & Clark for a free consultation – contact Alford & Clark before you talk to the insurance company or sign anything that could waive your rights
File a police report, and follow up to make sure it is accurate
Avoid giving any written or recorded statements to the insurance adjuster
Get the name and insurance information of the other driver
Get the names and contact information for any witnesses
Take photographs of the accident scene and your injuries
Driving a car is more dangerous than you might think.
Driving a car is by far the most dangerous activity that most of us engage in on a daily basis. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, last year there were 13,616 serious injury crashes in Texas with 17,011 people sustaining a catastrophic and incapacitating injury. More broadly, 246,335 people were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2015. This means that, in 2015:
A crash occurred every 61 seconds
1 person was injured every 2 minutes 8 seconds
1 person was killed every 2 hours 29 minutes
At least 1 person died on Texas roadways every single day
As more and more vehicles enter our roadways and as more and more miles are driven per year, the number of car accidents and the number of injuries will increase. It is only a matter of time before you or a loved one is involved in a car accident. You need to be prepared. You need to know what to do when an accident happens. You need Alford & Clark in your corner.
Why do I need Alford & Clark? Can't I just handle my claim myself?
Without Alford & Clark in your corner, it is virtually impossible for you to get the insurance company to pay you the full value of your claim. Without Alford & Clark in your corner, the insurance company will stall, will try to trick you into giving a statement that hurts your case, and will pressure you into settling your claim for pennies on the dollar.
In Texas, you typically have two years to file a lawsuit for a motor vehicle accident. However, there are exceptions in the law that may shorten the time you have to file. Missing that deadline will lock you out of the courthouse forever, and it is likely that you will recover nothing - no matter how serious your injuries. Aside from this deadline, the value of your case decreases every day you wait to contact Alford & Clark. Every day gives the insurance company more time to try to diminish the value of your case. Alford & Clark will make sure that you don't miss any important deadlines and will fight to get you the maximum value for your case. Call us today and put Alford & Clark in your corner.
