Frisco Car Accident Lawyer

Getting into a car accident can be a very confusing situation. That single instant will trigger a series of events that can throw a person’s entire life into chaos. After seeking out medical care for any injuries, a person needs to consider whether or not they want to take legal action against the at-fault driver. All the while, they are missing time at work and their home lives are suffering.

The very people who are supposed to help, the insurance companies, often only make things worse. By flooding injured people with paperwork and denying liability in obvious situations, they can prey on unrepresented plaintiffs.

Our Frisco car accident lawyers are here to help. From day one, our injury lawyers handle every step of the claims process so that our clients can focus their energies on recovery.

Texas Traffic Laws

Most collisions on the road are the result of violations of driving safety rules. Because of this, they are pursued by a Frisco car crash lawyer under the legal theory of negligence. In short, negligence occurs when a person has a duty to protect another, but, through taking an action or failing to do so, causes harm to the protected person. There are five parts, or elements, of a successful negligence claim:

  1. Duty – Duty is created when a person takes an action that requires them to care for other people. All drivers of all vehicles assume a duty to protect other drivers, pedestrians, and passengers. Therefore, this element is always met in a car accident case.
  2. Breach – When the person with the duty acts in a way that causes harm, the duty is said to be breached. This can be by violating a rule of the road, or simply by driving in a careless manner. Examples can include running a stop sign or texting while driving. If the police make a note on their report that one driver was committing one of these actions, the likelihood they will be considered at-fault increases.
  3. Causation – Any injuries claimed by the plaintiff must be attributable to the breach of the duty of care. Any preexisting conditions will not be part of the case, but any worsening caused by the wreck may be recoverable.
  4. Scope – The injuries suffered or injuries of a similar kind must have been foreseeable from the facts of the case.
  5. Damages – Lastly, the plaintiff must have suffered a physical injury from the accident. Without damages, there is not a claim that a Frisco car accident attorney can make, regardless of how negligent the at fault driver was.

Potential claimants should also be aware that there is a time limit to file a lawsuit. Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 16.003, any lawsuit alleging personal injury must be filed no more than two years from the date of the incident.   In certain situations, the time limit to file a lawsuit may even be less than two years.

As soon as this time passes, the case cannot be heard by the court. Known as the statute of limitations, this is a common reason for a person’s claim to be denied.

I seeked the McCraw law group after a bad experience. As lawyers would do they lied to get the case. After my car was... totaled with my kids car sat in the pound for a month and a half until I took matters into my own hands. I also was told by Vanessa she had too much work to focus on my case. After we waited to move on the adjusters beat I took matters in my own hands. I was told a certain amount by her supervisor but received less but they received the 10k as in the contact plus’s 300.Also in the process we lost our pip after the settlement was received and they declined to commit to pursue my out of state insurance. I would say run !!!!!! Don’t think twice! They’re horrible! I was asked to handle the hospital bills with care! They’re very nice! You need lawyers to handle your case like you wouldn’t. In my case I handled them. I didn’t receive my complete compensation after my children and I suffered so much hardship and pain. They didn’t care. Horrible beside manors but was extremely nice to the adjusters. RUN!!!!read more

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the more
