The Rio Grande Valley of Texas is one of the fastest growing areas of the United States. The growth has added many more cars to the Valley roads and led to more traffic congestion and unfortunately more car accidents. Many car accidents are caused by motorists’ carelessness or disregard for the safety of others such as driving too fast for the traffic conditions. If you or a loved one has been injured in a preventable car accident in South Texas caused by another motorist, an experienced Rio Grande Valley car accident lawyer may be able to help you.

If the car accident involved serious injuries, it is a good idea to consult with a knowledgeable car wreck attorney. Let our car accident attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., review the specifics of your car accident and explain your legal options for seeking relief. Our lawyers are dedicated to helping families in the Rio Grande Valley recover from serious accidents caused by negligence.
How a Rio Grande Valley Car Wreck Lawyer Can Help
The Rio Grande Valley includes Starr County, Hidalgo County, Willacy County, and Cameron County. Approximately 1.3 million people live in the Valley, according to recent Census estimates. The three largest cities are Brownsville, Harlingen, and McAllen. Among the four counties in the Valley, Hidalgo County has the highest number of car accidents and injuries. Herrman & Herrman maintains an office in McAllen to better serve individuals and families in the Rio Grande Valley who need a skilled car accident lawyer.
The attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., have helped individuals and families involved in thousands of car accidents across South Texas over the years. We care deeply about the families of the Rio Grande Valley. We understand that a car accident can be disruptive to anyone who is seriously injured and to the injured person’s family. A serious accident may leave you unable to work and earn income for many weeks or months. You should not have to worry about paying your medical bills if you were injured in a car crash caused by someone else. A car accident attorney at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., can negotiate aggressively on your behalf to seek the compensation that your family needs to move forward.
We start by carefully investigating your car accident to identify all the potentially liable parties and their insurers. The initial police accident report may not identify all the contributing factors if the investigating officer was rushing to close the investigation. In addition to an obvious driver error, an unsafe roadway design or a defective automotive component such as a defective tire or faulty brakes may contribute to a car accident. Identifying all the potentially responsible parties may broaden the pool of compensation available to you after a serious accident.
Our attorneys gather your medical records and determine the present and future costs of your medical bills and other related expenses. Some disabling injuries require remodeling of your home to accommodate lifestyle changes and allow you to live as independently as possible. We prepare and submit a claim reflecting the full extent of your losses to the insurance company representing the responsible party.
We negotiate aggressively on your behalf for a just settlement that recognizes the harm that you and your family have suffered. We deal with the insurance adjusters so that you can focus on your health and your family. If you are unable to work as a result of an injury and we are handling your car accident case, we may be able to lend you money to pay your expenses until your case is resolved.
We will contact the hospital and health care providers that treated you. We will inform them that we are seeking compensation on your behalf so that you will have money to pay your bills. Many hospitals are willing to wait to be paid and delay collection efforts if you have hired a lawyer and are pursuing a lawsuit.
Whenever possible, we seek to resolve the personal injury claim without going to court. A negotiated settlement allows you to receive the compensation that you need as quickly as possible. We keep you informed of any settlement offers and will provide guidance about whether the offer is fair. Some insurance companies refuse to offer a fair settlement even when their policyholder was clearly negligent. When that happens, we are prepared to file a lawsuit and go to civil court to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
An experienced car accident attorney at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., can provide legal guidance based on years of handling car accident claims. Our law firm has the resources to pursue a case to a conclusion and our car accident lawyers will work tirelessly on your behalf. We are ready to assist you in a number of ways so that you can get back on your feet.
How Can You Afford a Car Accident Attorney?
After a serious car wreck, many people have a hard time paying their bills, especially if they are unable to work. If we take your car accident case, the attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., will represent you on a contingency fee basis. We understand you are going through a difficult time and do not need more bills right now.
A contingency fee arrangement allows injury victims to obtain a quality legal representation that might be difficult to afford otherwise. A contingent fee arrangement is our way of putting our clients’ interests first. You will not owe any legal fee unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you through a negotiated settlement or jury verdict. It also means we have to be selective about the cases we accept. If we are successful, then our payment and expenses are deducted from the amount of the settlement or verdict, and you receive a check for the rest.
