Can you claim for pain and suffering even after a minor car accident?
The injuries sustained in minor car accidents sometimes surprise even the medical professionals who treat the victims.
Bruises, strains, sprains, hairline fractures, stiffness, soft tissue injuries… while none of these may sound particularly burdensome, they can result in considerable pain and suffering, time off work, temporary disability, loss of quality of life, and/or psychological trauma.
In these circumstances, it is not the extent of the car accident that matters but the extent (and effect) of your injuries.
If the insurance company won’t recognize the extent of your pain and suffering through the standard claim procedure, we can file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
Stay at the scene and report it to the police
Not only is it illegal to leave the scene of an accident, but you also need a copy of the police report (which you should check for accuracy) for your insurance claim.
Pictures of car damage and injuries, video, contact details from bystanders, evidence of road signs and weather conditions – gather what you can for your personal injury lawyer.
Never admit fault
Even if you think you were partly at fault for the accident, don’t say it to anyone.
Get a medical checkup
As soon as you can leave the scene, seek a medical checkup and get a copy of the medical report – even if you think you only have a minor injury

Accident Injury Frequently Asked Questions
What are the main causes of car accidents in Channelview?
Most car accidents in Channelview are the result of one of the following:
Distracted driving: Texting, eating, applying make-up, and adjusting the stereo are all forms of distracted driving
Is it worth getting a lawyer for a minor car accident?
It may be. Even minor accidents can cause injuries that have a lasting impact. It’s best to discuss your options with a car accident attorney who can assess whether you have a valid claim for compensation during a case evaluation.
What if both parties are at fault?
Texas applies “comparative fault” laws for car accident injuries.
This means that when two or more parties are adjudged to be at-fault for an accident, the amount of compensation due for the injured victim is potentially reduced by the amount of fault apportioned to them.
Provided you were 50 percent or less at-fault for an accident, you can claim compensation from the other party or parties for the remaining portion of the fault.
So, if you were awarded $60,000 in compensation but were considered to be 40 percent at-fault for the accident you would receive $36,000 (which is 60 percent of $60,000).
What is the Statute of Limitations on car accident claims in Texas?
In Texas, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to claim damages caused by your injuries.
It is important to begin proceedings as soon as possible after your accident or it may harm your position when making a claim.
