Why is Determining Fault in a Texas Car Accident Important?

Figuring out who was at fault for your Texas car accident is so important because Texas is an at-fault car accident state. This means the person whose negligence caused your accident (or their insurance company) is responsible for paying your damages.

What if You Were Partially At Fault for the Accident?

Just because you may have contributed to the accident doesn’t mean that you can’t recover compensation.

Texas operates under the “modified comparative fault” rule. Under this law, your overall compensation will be reduced by the percentage for which you were at fault. For example, if your total damages are $30,000, but you are found to have been 50% at fault, your total recovery will be reduced to $15,000.

However, if you are found to be 51% or more at fault for the accident, you will not be able to recover anything. This highlights why determining fault as early as possible is so critical.

You can see how important it is to have an experienced attorney advocating for you. After you’ve been in a car accident, we’ll get right to work establishing who is to blame for the accident. We’ll protect you against unscrupulous insurance companies who only care about their financial bottom line.
