Car Accident FAQ
At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., we have been representing injury victims in Texas since 1994, including those in San Antonio, Lubbock, Abilene and Odessa. If you have questions after a car accident, we can provide you with answers.
Do I really need an attorney for my personal injury claim?
Technically, no. But the legal system can be complex and overwhelming. An attorney can inform you of your rights, make sure you understand the process that lies ahead, handle interactions with the insurance companies, and make sure you are fully compensated for past, current and future damages.
I feel OK now. Do I really need to see a doctor?
Yes. It can take hours, days or longer for people to feel the effects of some injuries. Seeing a doctor now will preserve your ability to make a successful claim in the future. Failing to seek out a doctor now can make it more difficult if you start to exhibit injury symptoms in the future and need compensation to cover your medical costs and other damages.
What if the other driver lacks insurance?
Even if the person responsible for the accident lacks adequate insurance, you may still be able to recover financial compensation for your injuries. If you carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your auto insurance policy, we can help.
I don’t have health insurance. How will I be able to pay my medical bills?
Don’t let your lack of insurance prevent you from getting the treatment you need after an accident. In the immediate aftermath of the accident, your own auto insurance will cover the costs of treatment.
I was injured during work hours. Do I have a personal injury claim?
If you were hurt in a car accident during the course of your job duties, you may be able to seek personal injury compensation in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. This is known as a third-party claim, since it involved a third party rather than your employer.
