Austin Area Car Accident Lawyer
Severe car accidents almost always cause catastrophic injuries, many of which result in fatal accidents, or injuries so debilitating that lives are forever changed. Needless to say, these types of accidents are devastating to the individuals involved, and to their surviving family members.
Insurance companies often pressure families to accept payments that are likely to be far less than they deserve. It is understandable that insurance adjusters are hired by insurance companies to work on their behalf by paying out the least amount possible, but it can leave the victims and their families in financial ruin. Before you sign off on a settlement agreement with an insurance company, you will want to check with car accident attorneys at Shaw Cowart LLP who specialize in severe or fatal injuries to ensure that you and your loved ones are receiving a fair and just compensation. Just as the insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies, an Austin car accident lawyer will advocate for you, and work aggressively to protect your rights.

Austin Car Accident Litigation Attorney
Monetary values can never be placed upon your injuries, and more assuredly the loss of a loved one, that is due to someone’s carelessness or negligence. However, receiving the compensation you deserve can assist you in receiving the medical care you desperately need in order to recover from your injuries, and sustain your family during the recovery process. In the case of a fatality accident, and the loss of a loved one, financial compensation can mean the difference of being able to remain in your home or being forced to move into an apartment. In addition, if your loved one was the sole breadwinner in the family, it could mean that your children will still be able to go to college, while you and/or your family maintain the lifestyle you had before the loved one was killed.
