Injured by a High-Speed Car Accident in Austin?

If you were the victim of a crash caused by a speeding driver, you are likely wondering about what to do and have a ton of questions about your rights and options. At TK Injury Lawyers, we have experienced Austin car accident lawyers who can answer those questions for you and provide you with legal guidance regarding how we might obtain maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

Accidents are common on highways in the Austin area, and while some are unavoidable, most happen due to driver negligence or recklessness, such as excessive speeding. A speeding driver is one who is driving above posted speed limits, and the accidents they cause because of their speeding can cause serious injuries or even death.

What We Can Do for You after a High-Speed Crash

When a driver is excessively speeding and collides with your vehicle, the potential for life-altering injuries is possible. These crashes often result in rollovers, chain-reaction collisions, and other dangerous scenarios on the highway. Because the losses from high-speed car accidents can be so significant, you need a legal team you can trust, and the following are some steps we can take to protect your rights.

  1. Investigating the accident. We can gather evidence of liability on the part of the speeding driver or other parties, including any police reports or arrest records. If there were witnesses, we can interview them to get statements to support your claim. If necessary, we may also engage other professionals to recreate the accident scene so that we have a full and complete picture of what happened.
  2. Negotiating with the insurance company. You have probably received a call from the other driver’s insurance company adjuster seeking to offer you a settlement, but it is generally a mistake to accept anything without legal guidance. This is because, as nice as they may sound, adjusters are trained professionals whose job is to make sure the insurance payoff is as small and as little as possible. We, on the other hand, are on your side and will seek the most compensation that you deserve.
  3. Preparing you for court. Most accident cases never go to trial but are settled during negotiations between the insurance company and your attorney. However, if we reach a professional conclusion that the insurance company’s last offer to settle the case is not reasonable, we will advise you of such, and we might recommend that we take the case to court. If you agree, then the next thing we will do is to prepare you for litigation and begin the process.
