Driving is not only a necessity in Corpus Christi, it’s a way of life. Cars, trucks, SUVs, tractor-trailers and motorcycles must share the road. All drivers are required to exercise a reasonable amount of care to avoid injuring others. Nonetheless, careless driving frequently leads to accidents in Corpus Christi and elsewhere across the state that result in serious injuries and death. Even a low-impact collision can have long-lasting consequences. When you are injured in an accident, it’s important to have an experienced car accident attorney on your side.
The personal injury attorneys at Ben Bronston & Associates have extensive experience helping automobile accident victims in Texas. If you were injured in a car wreck that was not your fault, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
While no two car accidents are the same, some of the leading causes of accidents in Corpus Christi include:
If you have been in injured in a car accident it is crucial to immediately seek medical attention and then call our experienced car accident attorneys as soon as possible. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, quickly obtain police reports and other information, and seek out and interview witnesses that will support your claim. We are highly adept at helping victims in a wide range of accidents from low-impact crashes and head-on collisions to vehicle roller-overs and pedestrian accidents.
While we routinely handle car accident claims against negligent drivers, we also have considerable experience pursuing claims against local and state governments for defective roads, guardrails or lighting. If your injury was caused by a defective product we can also pursue a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer or supplier.
Automobile accidents often result in a variety of injuries including broken bones, neck and spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries among others. These injuries can range from minor to catastrophic or may even be life-threatening. Some accident victims often require long-term care and rehabilitation. On the other hand, injuries such as whiplash and back spasms may not surface until long after an accident.
Regardless of the nature of your injuries, the attorneys at Ben Bronston & Associates in Corpus Christi will fight for your right to meaningful compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, property damage and emotional distress.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, determining the extent of your injuries and the full value of your claim will take time. Insurance companies often try to settle these cases quickly, however, and for as little money as possible. At Ben Bronston & Associates, we will take the time to thoroughly understand your case and fight for compensation that considers all of your future medical and financial needs. If the insurer fails to negotiate in good faith or offer a fair value for your claim, we will litigate the matter in court. Not only will we fight for your rights, we will make sure that you receive the proper medical care for your injuries. Our law office helps accident victims in Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, Victoria, Kleberg County, Nueces County, San Patricio County, and throughout Texas.
