What types of damages would I be able to recover in a car accident?

You may be eligible to recover a variety of damages, but you are not likely to get a good idea of what kinds of damages and what they may be worth without speaking to an experienced car accident lawyer. Generally speaking, you could recover compensation for costs of medical care, reduced earning capacity, scarring, pain, mental anguish and physical impairment.

Your car accident attorney assesses the value of your damages and then builds a case for you to obtain a fair and full settlement. You should be aware that Texas is a shared fault state and the amount of compensation you may receive depends on the percentage of fault attributed to you in causing the accident. If the other party is over 51 percent responsible, your quest for compensation is likely to succeed.
