Weslaco Car Accident Lawyer
Weslaco is a small city in Hidalgo County, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. Located on the north side of the Rio Grande across from Nuevo Progreso, Weslaco is a gateway between Texas and Mexico. Interstate 2 connects Weslaco to Harlingen to the east and McAllen to the west. The city’s tropical climate makes it a popular destination for Winter Texans as well.
Weslaco has emerged as a hub for international trade and shipping as a result of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). That economic growth has brought more traffic and led to more frequent motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. If you or your loved one is injured in an accident caused by another driver, here are four things that may be helpful to you to understand:
- You may be entitled to claim compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company to pay your medical bills and other expenses related to the accident.
- You may receive a call from an insurance adjuster representing the at-fault driver and offered a quick settlement.
- Insurance companies will try to take advantage of you by offering a low settlement if you do not have a knowledgeable lawyer representing your interests and are unfamiliar with the settlement process.
- You can speak with a lawyer free of charge about your legal rights if you have been injured by another motorist.
Before you sign anything presented by another driver’s insurance company, inform yourself about your legal rights. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to review your Weslaco car wreck or truck accident and discuss your legal options. Understanding your legal rights will allow you and your family to make a better decision.

What to Ask a Car Accident Attorney
When you meet with an attorney about your Weslaco car accident, here are some key questions to ask.
- Do I have a valid claim to file a lawsuit? The attorney will review the specific facts of your car wreck and evaluate whether another driver’s negligence likely caused your injuries. The attorney will seek evidence to show that the other driver’s error, misconduct or disregard for safety caused the accident and led to your injuries.
- What is the estimated value of my losses? Many people who try to handle their own injury claim underestimate the actual value of their losses and get shortchanged. The full value of your losses includes your medical and rehabilitation costs, lost income from missed work, future lost earnings capacity if you cannot work or have to take a lower paying job because of your injuries, as well as your pain and suffering. An experienced attorney will be able to estimate the full value of your losses. That can help you avoid receiving less than full value for your claim.
- How many car accident cases has the attorney handled? It is important to work with a lawyer who has years of experience handling cases similar to yours and can provide trusted legal guidance based on experience.
- How does the attorney charge? At Herrman & Herrman P.L.L.C., our attorneys represent clients on a contingency fee basis. That makes it easier for victims of serious car accidents to have an experienced lawyer representing them.
- Is the client responsible for any upfront expenses or fees? If our car accident attorneys handle your car accident case on a contingency fee basis, you will not owe any upfront costs. You only owe a fee if we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.
