Car Accident Injuries

If you’ve been hurt, our Houston car accident lawyers fight for compensation

A Houston car accident can change your life in an instant and leave you with serious injuries. Medical expenses can add up very quickly and become overwhelming. If a negligent driver caused the accident that left you hurt, you deserve financial compensation, but recovering compensation can be a complicated process.

At Smith & Hassler, we understand the significant impact pain from a car accident can have on your life. It affects you physically, emotionally, and financially. That’s why we are committed to holding negligent drivers accountable and helping you recover the maximum compensation possible.

What are the most common injuries sustained in a car accident?

Car accident injuries can range from mild to severe and life-threatening. Our Houston car accident lawyers can help with cases involving:

What should I do if I sustained car accident injuries?

Receiving medical care is your top priority after being in an accident. Some injuries may seem minor or may not produce any symptoms at all. Don’t let that fool you. Get a medical evaluation as soon as possible. This allows you to get treated before your injury worsens and establishes a link to your car accident.

You may need diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. Recovery may take weeks, months or even longer, depending on the severity of your injury. Some people are left with a permanent disability.

 Who pays for my car accident injuries?

Insurance companies are supposed to help after you’ve been hurt in a car accident, but the truth is they are not on your side. Their top priority is protecting their bottom line. To keep profits as high as possible, they’ll try to pay you as little as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation.

For example, insurance companies may question the seriousness of your injuries. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing. They may take the position that you caused the accident and they aren’t responsible for paying. Or they may make a lowball settlement offer that doesn’t come close to covering the damages you have suffered.

Our attorneys know all the tactics that insurance companies use to try to pay you less, and we don’t tolerate them. We help you fight back to get the financial compensation you deserve. Our firm has the knowledge, experience, and resources that help us win tough legal battles and deliver results for our clients.

We start by investigating your car accident to get the facts. Our legal team gathers evidence and carefully reviews accident reports, medical records, and other documentation. We identify witnesses and interview them about what they saw. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.

How do I help prove my injury?

To help prove the legitimacy of car accident injuries, there are certain best practices to follow:

  • Keep all medical documentation: This includes your diagnosis, receipts, prescriptions, appointment logs, and medical bills.
  • Attend all appointments: Be sure to attend all appointments and follow your medical treatment plan.
  • Adhere to the advice of your doctor and attorney: Avoid engaging in any activity that can worsen or delegitimize your injuries.

“I simply can't say enough good things about the law firm of Smith and Hassler, and particularly about Daragh Carter. My daughter and son-in-law were seriously injured two years ago in an automobile accident. Because of my daughter and son-in-law's injuries, it became the responsibility of her sister, father and myself to research and initially interview lawyers on their behalf. We were fortunate to find two law firms that stood out, but Daragh was ultimately who we all chose to trust. We have never for a moment regretted that decision . His representation on their behalf was unmatched in the research, knowledge, and skill he provided. Because of the hard work of Daragh Carter and the commitment of Smith and Hassler, things turned out favorably for them. I highly recommend your consideration of Smith and Hassler if you are in need of a personal injury law firm.” - Deborah
