Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident in Texas? 

Not everyone knows that going to court is a possibility in a vehicle crash case. If you’ve just found this out, you might be speculating, “Do I have to go to court for a car accident in Texas?” If you are worried about the answer, then you are likely a little anxious about the prospect of going to court.

You don’t have to be worried, though. A lawyer can prepare you for car accident court, if it ever comes to that. You should also know that most auto wreck cases are settled outside of the courtroom.

Car Crash Claims

When you’ve been hurt in an auto wreck, you might already know you have the right to pursue the person who caused your accident by filing an injury claim. You can submit your claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company to receive money to pay for your car’s property damage and your injuries and medical expenses.

Most of the time an insurance company will settle car accident cases, giving the accident victims the money they need. Every once in a while, though, they might not.

When a Claim Could Go to Court

Your claim could go to court if the insurer decides to fight your claim. For instance, if the insurer believes that you were responsible for causing the car accident, they might deny your claim. In this event, you would have to take the insurance company to court to get the money you need after your accident

Another reason you might go to court for an auto injury is if the insurer isn’t willing to pay you fairly. Sometimes insurance companies will offer low settlements that an accident victim isn’t happy with. If that happens to you, you might have no choice but to take the insurer to court.
