Recovering Your Damages

A person can recover damages for their vehicle, medical expenses, and economic loss including missed time from work or missed business opportunities. They can also recover non-economic damages, which are pain and suffering damages. If they are hit by a drunk driver, they may be entitled to further damages.

The drivers involved in a car accident are most typically responsible for the damages caused, with the at-fault party and their insurer owing compensation to the other party. The at-fault part is likely the person who caused the accident. We at West & West are especially experienced in assisting our clients claim all possible damages from a car accident.


If your accident involved an uninsured or underinsured driver, your own insurer has a duty to cover your costs, depending on the terms of your policy. Your auto accident lawyer in Rosharon, TX can negotiate with both your own insurer and that of the other party.

If an accident involves a commercial driver or large truck, the parent company may bear liability, in addition to the insurer and the driver himself.

While there are limits to when a government or state body may be sued, your Rosharon, TX car accident attorney can analyze the circumstances that led to your injuries and determine which parties may be liable and how to proceed.


Here is an idea of the kinds of insurance-related issues you may run into after a car accident.

Determining Damages

An attorney can first determine what damages a person may be entitled to and then ensure that they recover all of them following a car accident. Oftentimes, people who handle car accident cases on their own without an attorney miss certain damages that may be important to them and are allowed in their case.


Additionally, a car accident lawyer can retrieve all medical records and all medical bills documenting injuries sustained in injuries. He or she can seek information from the individual’s employer to determine lost wage information and documents the individual’s pain and suffering damages by asking an individual to keep a journal so that they can understand the impact in that life based on the damages. In serious injuries that are life-altering, the car accident lawyer can find expert opinions about future medical care, economic loss, and any other damages that an individual may be entitled to when they have been seriously hurt in an auto accident.

Common Types of Car Accidents

Our car accident attorneys in Rosharon, TX handle all types of vehicle accidents and related liability, including but not limited to:

Ensuring a Fair and Reasonable Outcome to a Car Accident Case

When filing a claim for damages, the plaintiff should be aware of the various routes they could take to ensure their case is resolved in a favorable manner. One method of doing so is through a settlement with the other driver’s insurance company. The settlement process begins as soon as the plaintiff’s attorney gets in contact with the other party informing them of the damages owed to them and their desire to formally file an injury claim. If the insurance company finds the plaintiff to have a valid claim for compensation, they would typically offer a settlement that is usually lower than the initial claim for damages. At this point, both parties could enter into mediation to try to resolve the case that favors both sides. If an agreement cannot be made regarding a settlement, the victim would have no other choice than to take the case to trial.

I used West & West for my personal injury claim - a slip and fall that involved a trip to the emergency room. Michael West was able to successfully get my medical bills paid and I walked away with money in my pocket. Both Michael and his paralegal were very helpful throughout the whole process.

West and West did an excellent job representing our family's estate settlement during the probate process. They are skilled, up to date, and were patient with us and the beneficiaries and helped us keep everything on track during our extended process. Laura and the others were always amazing with us too.

I enjoyed dealing with a local law firm with strong roots in the community. Probating my Uncle's Will was emotional and personal, but the staff made the process easier than I ever imagined. The process was smooth and easy. The care shown by the staff is knowledgeable and caring.
