Austin Accident Attorneys
Serving Austin, Waco and Surrounding Areas.
In Texas, we have nearly 80,000 miles of public highways – the most of any state. Unfortunately, that heavy traffic means there’s also a high number of accidents. The Texas Department of Transportation estimates that one reportable vehicle crash occurs every 74 seconds, one person is injured in a wreck every two minutes, and one person is killed every three hours.
If you’ve been involved in a vehicle accident, it’s important that you seek medical treatment right away and contact an experienced vehicle accident attorney in order to protect your rights and interests.
For more than 30 years, Cotton, Castano & Richardson has filed accident claims on behalf of victims throughout Austin, Waco and the surrounding Texas communities of Round Rock, Georgetown, Killeen, Temple, Cedar Park, Lakeway, Taylor and Belton.
Our vehicle accident lawyers realize a vehicle accident of any kind – car, motorcycle or truck – can be a frightening and confusing experience, whether you are the driver or passenger.
You may be physically harmed, emotionally traumatized and wondering how you will pay for your vehicle damage, hospital bills and other expenses. In many cases, the vehicle accident may have left you injured or disabled and unable to work. This makes matters more difficult and intimidating. Our attorneys want to help.
If your accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another driver, particularly a drunk driver, we will work tirelessly to ensure the careless party – and their insurance company – takes full responsibility, and you are fairly compensated.
You may be able to recover compensation if you’ve suffered any of these damages and are able to prove them.
Your family may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Examples of potential damages include the loss of the deceased’s care and companionship, burial and funeral costs and compensation for mental anguish.
We know insurance companies will contact a vehicle accident victim soon after the wreck occurs. They will try to get you to make a statement or agree to a quick, low-value settlement. Don’t talk to them before you talk to an attorney. The insurance company’s goal will be to protect its bottom line. Our goal will be to protect you.
Most insurance companies will have an army of attorneys at their disposal to review and contest your claim. However, they will often tell car accident victims that they don’t need legal representation, and they will try to persuade you to settle quickly and for a dollar amount that may not sufficiently cover your losses.
We know how insurance companies operate. We know how to navigate the complicated issues involved with insurance policies. We will work hard to seek just compensation for harm you have suffered in an auto accident.
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death cases. Depending on the parties involved in your vehicle accident, the deadline for taking action may arrive sooner. That’s why it’s important to contact a skilled and experienced vehicle accident attorney immediately after you’ve been involved in a wreck.
