After a serious car accident, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed by emotions including anger, sadness, and confusion about what to do next. Many accident victims feel financial stress if they have to miss weeks of work while the medical bills pile up.

You can rest assured that our attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., will treat you with respect and handle your claim with the highest level of legal skill.
You may receive a call or letter from the other driver’s insurance company after a car accident. You should not sign anything presented by the other driver’s insurance company or accept any settlement until you have had an accident attorney review whether the offer is reasonable. You may be tempted to take the settlement offer, but initial offers by insurance companies are typically far less than a case is actually worth. You will need an experienced accident lawyer standing up for you to be treated fairly in the settlement process.

We will meet you at our office, at your home or in your hospital room to discuss your legal options after a serious accident. We will meet you wherever it is most convenient for you.
We are ready to take the steps needed to resolve your car accident case as quickly as possible. Our legal team will get to work immediately investigating your car accident, interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence.
We will identify all the parties that are potentially liable for your injuries and analyze the policy limits of their insurance coverage.
The insurance company representing the at-fault driver may contact you and ask you to give a recorded statement about the accident or to sign a release so that the insurance company can look at your medical records. The insurance company may offer a settlement. Let an experienced accident attorney handle all the communications with the insurance adjusters. Don’t let an insurance company take advantage of your unfamiliarity with the claims process.
We will calculate your losses due to the accident, including medical bills, physical therapy, lost income, future lost income if your injuries limit your ability to return to work and other related losses.
We will present a claim for compensation to the appropriate insurance providers. The claim will reflect the full value of your losses from the accident. Our attorneys will negotiate on your behalf for maximum compensation.
Most cases are settled through negotiation. But if an insurance company refuses to agree to a just settlement, we can file a lawsuit in the appropriate Texas court and seek justice for you. We will continue to try to reach a settlement throughout the process.
Cases We Take in Edinburg
We handle injury cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other types of accidents.
Drivers who exceed safe speed limits put themselves and others at risk of injury. Speeding reduces the time that a driver has to react to avoid an accident.
Talking on a cell phone, adjusting an electronic navigation system, eating or talking to a passenger can cause a driver to take their focus off the road. The number of drivers who are using a cell phone while driving has increased significantly in recent years.
Tailgating, weaving between lanes, driving too fast for traffic conditions, honking and gesturing and speeding through intersections are all forms of aggressive driving. Aggressive drivers show disregard for the safety of other motorists and should be held accountable when they cause accidents.
A driver who has become intoxicated may drive erratically, drive on the wrong side of the road, run a traffic signal or drive too fast and cause a serious accident. Drunk driving accidents are preventable accidents caused by a driver’s poor decision to drink and get behind the wheel.
Many serious accidents in Edinburg occur on highways including SH 107, SH 336, U.S. Route 281 and Interstate 69C.
One of every five motorists in Texas is driving uninsured and many more have insufficient insurance. When an uninsured motorist caused an accident resulting in injuries, you may still be able to obtain compensation to cover your medical bills from your own UM/UIM insurance coverage. Our attorneys can help.
What to Ask Your Car Accident Attorney
Choosing the right attorney to handle your Edinburg car accident can make all the difference in the results. When you meet with an attorney, it is important to know what to ask to help you make the right choice.
- Have you handled these types of injury cases before?
You want an Edinburg car accident lawyer who has handled many car accident cases, has negotiated with insurance companies and understands the steps necessary to be successful. You want a lawyer who has courtroom experience and is prepared to take your case to trial if necessary.
- Will you be the attorney handling my case? Ask which lawyer will be handling your case and who will be your contact with the law firm. Our attorneys are committed to helping people in Edinburg with their legal needs.
- Can you share the law firm’s case results? At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., we are privileged to have represented many South Texans and are justifiably proud of our attorneys’ case settlements. The results reflect our hard work on behalf of clients. At the same time, you should walk away from any lawyer who guarantees certain results. Each car accident case has its own set of facts that makes it unique. The results of past cases do not predict the outcome of future cases.
- What is the attorney’s contingency fee?
Personal injury lawyers typically represent accident victims on a contingency fee basis. If you have a valid accident case, you can expect that an attorney will take the case on a contingency fee basis. That means you have no upfront cost and only pay a legal fee if we obtain money for you through a negotiated settlement or jury award.
Once we take your case, we will work relentlessly until it is resolved. Schedule your free consultation now with our expert Edinburg car accident attorneys.
