Beaumont Car Accident Lawyers

Why Do You Need an Experienced Beaumont Car Accident Lawyer?

Pierce Skrabanek can investigate Beaumont car accidents firsthand and has experience practicing in local courts. You deserve proven attorneys for your one chance at compensation and justice.

Car and truck accident injuries can require weeks, months, or even years of therapy, rehabilitation, and medical treatment. You need an attorney with a full understanding of how to calculate future costs, as well as a proven history of achieving meaningful results.

Our Beaumont car accident lawyers have the proven experience you need, including a car accident case where we oobtained a judgment in the amount of $2 million, approximately five times the defendant’s highest pretrial settlement offer. In another case, we obtained a verdict four times greater than the defendant’s final offer. We will not settle for less than you deserve.

If you or a loved one have been injured, you may be wondering what to do after a car accident. If you hire an experienced Beaumont car accident lawyer, all of the legal work is for your attorney to handle while you and your family recover in peace. At Pierce Skrabanek, we can advise you through this process, and invest in your case upfront to help alleviate financial worries. We are only paid once we’ve secured a settlement or verdict for you.

Contact the Houston headquarters of Pierce Skrabanek online or by calling (832) 690-7000 — we have decades of experience in Texas courts and are ready to help you recover.

What Kind of Settlement Can a Beaumont Car Accident Attorney Secure?

The compensation that may be available will vary by case. You can be certain, however, that our Beaumont car accident attorneys will always seek the maximum compensation available to you. We do this by pursuing all liable parties with evidence that meets trial standards, whether your case settles before trial or a judge issues a damages award.

A Beaumont car accident settlement could cover:

  • Hospital bills, ambulance rides, and medical procedures like surgeries
  • Follow-up medical visits, including physical rehabilitation and medications
  • Lost income because you were unable to work, or had to take a lower-paying job
  • Property damage to your vehicle and modifications to your home to make it accessible
  • Pain and suffering such as chronic physical pain or psychological conditions like PTSD

Beaumont statistics from one year show roughly 3,000 car crashes in the city causing 25 fatalities and hundreds of serious injuries. Every one of those figures represents a family grieving or struggling in our neighborhoods.

If a car accident has claimed the life of someone you love, we will also seek to get you compensated for funeral costs and wrongful death expenses. We will also pursue compensation for the loss of their unique and irreplaceable companionship on your family’s behalf. 

Compensation from a lawsuit cannot fully undo what has happened in the past. But it can help you and your family build a brighter future and move forward in life. Contact Pierce Skrabanek at (832) 690-7000 to discuss your needs and circumstances.

What Injuries Can a Beaumont Auto Accident Attorney Handle?

As personal injury lawyers, the Beaumont auto accident attorneys at Pierce Skrabanek can file cases for major injuries you’ve suffered due to a collision. 

The most common auto accident injuries include:

  • Head and brain injuries like TBIs and concussions
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Broken bones, crushed limbs, and amputation injuries
  • Internal injuries to your soft tissues and organs (including damage to reproductive organs which can cause a loss of fertility)
  • Burns, lacerations, and disfiguring injuries

This is a list of physical injuries, but emotional injuries are just as real and just as harmful. Conditions like panic disorders, insomnia, PTSD, depression, and the mental toll caused by loss of quality of life are also injuries you’ve suffered. An experienced Beaumont car accident injury lawyer can hire expert witnesses to describe these injuries in court, and what you need to treat them.

Some injuries can sometimes be treated in a relatively short time. Others — like TBI or paralysis — are conditions that stay with the victim for the rest of their life. They may require ongoing care or specialized medical equipment, and can affect a person’s ability to perform everyday tasks. 

Your car accident compensation should cover the entire long-term cost of your rehabilitation and care.

Key information: Remember that insurance claims adjusters work to minimize your payout, and may use any statement you make as evidence against your own best interests. By hiring a lawyer to speak on your behalf, you protect your right to recovery from those whose job it is to deny what you are fairly owed.

What Types of Crashes Can a Beaumont Auto Accident Lawyer Handle?

Here are some of the most common types of car crashes and auto accidents the lawyers at Pierce Skrabanek regularly handle:  

Rear-End Accidents

These are probably the most common types of accident claims our attorneys handle. Their seriousness is linked to how unexpected a rear-end collision may be, and can be attributed to the many distractions on the road today. More drivers are distracted due to texting while driving, cell phone conversations, and increasingly longer commute times.

Rear-end accidents may range from fender benders at slow speeds to catastrophic accidents at high speeds. Any type of vehicle — especially a commercial truck — does not need to be moving very fast to cause substantial injury when it crashes into a stopped vehicle from behind. These accidents can cause whiplash injuries due to sudden momentum changes, including head, back, and neck injuries. They can also trigger a chain of events that cause a pile-up accident.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions can be particularly horrifying. They are often attributed to the other driver drifting out of their lane into oncoming traffic or driving under the influence.

Drunk drivers have caused fatal crashes by taking the wrong highway ramp and driving in the wrong direction against traffic on the highway, subjecting innocent motorists to serious danger. While such a driver may face criminal charges, you should still get in touch with our Beaumont car accident lawyers to make sure your interests are protected. A civil case can help you obtain compensation not normally covered in a criminal case.

Side-Impact Accidents

Also known as “broadsiding” or T-bone crashes, side-impact accidents typically happen at intersections. If a driver runs a red light or a stop sign, enters the intersection, and causes an accident, they could be held liable.

In a side-impact collision, the car that strikes the side of the other car may be yours, or it may be the at-fault driver’s. If you hit the side of a car that drove through a red light in an intersection, it may not be considered your fault, and you should speak with our Beaumont car accident lawyers immediately.

Sideswiping Accidents

This type of accident is where two vehicles are traveling next to each other in the same direction, and the right side of one car strikes the left side of the other. Sideswipe accidents usually happen because one driver was trying to change lanes when it was unsafe to do so.

These can happen in various places, including parking lots and interstate highways. These accidents may cause only property damage, or they may be much worse by being the start of a major accident where a driver loses control.

Rollover Accidents

A rollover can involve a single vehicle or several cars at one time. Certain types of vehicles are often more likely to roll over than others, such as SUVs and large trucks that may have received custom “lifts.” Rollovers may happen after a collision, during a tire blowout, in bad weather, or due to driver error (such as overcorrecting a turn).

Our experienced Beaumont car accident lawyers have seen all types of vehicle crashes, and the disruption they cause to individuals and families. 

Regardless of what kind of accident you’ve suffered, the attorneys at Pierce Skrabanek are ready to hear your story and provide actionable steps toward a solution. Contact our team at (832) 690-7000 — we are here to guide you through this process to a better future.

Several of the verdicts and settlements we have achieved for clients are record-setting. One of those was a $117 million recovery for a severely injured mother of two represented by Mike Pierce.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will a car accident lawsuit cost me anything?

At Pierce Skrabanek, our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis — meaning you don’t pay anything unless we win. If a settlement or verdict is reached, our fees are paid from a percentage of the recovery. We cover the expenses associated with your lawsuit, and those expenses are later covered if a settlement or verdict is reached.

What happens after I file a Beaumont car accident lawsuit?

Once we file your lawsuit, we begin “discovery,” which is a formal exchange of information with the opposing side. Both parties obtain information related to the trial, including medical records, incident reports, corporate documents, etc.

Also during this process, depositions are taken. Depositions are spoken question-and-answer testimonies conducted under oath with both parties present. Depositions are typically taken with a court reporter who types up a transcript of all that is said, as well as a videographer who films the examination. These steps are crucial to forming the foundation of the case strategy.

How are car accident settlements calculated?

Courts will consider and review a number of different factors when calculating a settlement award for a car accident case in Beaumont, Texas. These may include the seriousness of a victim’s injury, the degree of negligence of the liable parties, as well as any local, state, and federal laws governing injury settlements.

Lastly, the amount of damages you receive often closely depends on the skill and capability of the lawyer handling your case. For this reason, you should only work with qualified Beaumont car accident attorneys who can show real results in handling these types of claims.

How long does a car accident settlement take?

There is no set time for a car accident lawsuit — each case is different and involves various factors and multiple parties in certain cases. You can expect a lawsuit to take at least several months, and sometimes a year or longer.

However, there is a limitation on how long after a crash you can file a claim or bring a case. In Texas, that deadline is 2 years after the date of the car accident. If you miss your window of opportunity, no matter how strong your case evidence may be, no compensation will be awarded. It is extremely important that you contact or call us at (832) 690-7000 before that deadline approaches.
