We Take Your Battle With
Insurance Representatives Personally

Serious crashes can be caused by one simple mistake or a series of mistakes. However, the consequences of these crashes can be devastating, leading to serious injuries and/or the loss of life. Serious injuries often result in expensive medical bills, lost wages and long physical and emotional recoveries.

If the motor vehicle accident was the fault of another, the good news is you may have multiple options to recover compensation for your damages including past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of inheritance, pain, impairment, disfigurement, or mental anguish and/or loss of consortium. In order to hold all responsible parties (and their insurance companies) fully responsible, please consider working with the most qualified car accident lawyer in Sherman. The best Car Accident Lawyers in Sherman with Burress Injury Law have the expertise to hold these parties fully accountable for all the harms and damages they caused you and your family.

When to Take Action with a Sherman Car Accident Lawyer

Not all car accidents have to result in litigation. If the victim(s) retains our firm shortly after the crash, our team can normally make a significant difference in establishing liability and building the value of the client’s damages case.  The earlier our team can start its work, the better the case will be. Without the help of qualified personal injury counsel, victims are at an enormous disadvantage dealing with sophisticated insurance adjusters.  Understand that any insurance company has a basic business model where premiums received massively exceed claims paid.

Some of the most important work your top Sherman Car Accident Lawyers do involves putting “boots on the ground” with our experts and gathering important evidence from the scene and involved vehicles to confirm fault on the other driver. We can also help victims develop a treatment plan, allowing clients to obtain necessary medical treatment without paying for medical care out of their own pockets.

Who Was at Fault?

In Texas, liability (fault) is critical when evaluating a motor vehicle accident. The driver who is determined to be at fault is liable for all of the damages he or she causes. Seeking compensation is routinely done through the at fault party’s insurance company as auto insurance is mandatory for all drivers.

Though there are exceptions, most car crashes are not intentional, so the key legal concept when evaluating liability is usually negligence. Negligence is defined as the failure to do that which a person of ordinary prudence would have done under the same or similar circumstances or doing that which a person of ordinary prudence would not have done under the same or similar circumstances. In the context of driving, the concept of negligence basically revolves around whether or not a person was being an ordinarily careful driver.  Examples of negligence include things like texting and driving, breaking the speed limit, running a stop sign or traffic signal, following too closely and failing to pay attention.
