You Need a Car Accident Attorney
The aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming and confusing. Insurance companies do everything in their power to delay, deny, and reduce the value of your car accident injury claim. They are trained to make it difficult for car accident victims to get the compensation they deserve. Insurance companies always put profit over duty. What they are not planning on is you working with an experienced car accident lawyer who’s on your side to fight for your rights.
Our attorneys are well-versed in personal injury laws throughout the state of Texas.

At Low Law Firm, we provide a number of legal services for our clients to ensure they are in the best position possible to move forward after an accident. Some of the services we help our clients with include:
Gathering Evidence: Our attorneys go out to the site of the accident to gather evidence in support of our clients’ claims. We take pictures, record videos, and check out homes and businesses in the area to see if they have any available surveillance footage that shows the accident.
Work with Experts: We work with professionals who can recreate each accident to show various factors, like speed, weather, and road conditions, to determine how the accident occurred. Expert recreationists provide invaluable insight as to how an accident occurred. When victims are forced out of work indefinitely, we work with financial experts who can calculate the amount of lost earnings accident victims endure as a result of their accidents.
Gather Documents: Our team at Low Law Firm will gather medical records and evidence, police reports, and even repair statements to ensure all damages are accounted for. We strive to help victims maximize their recoveries so they are able to get the medical treatment they need moving forward.

Frequently Asked Car Accident Questions:
The aftermath of a car accident is a confusing and overwhelming time. People injured in accidents are often overcome with questions surrounding their legal rights. For this reason, our team at Low Law Firm remains available to answer questions our clients have. The most common questions we receive after a car accident include:
When will I get a rental car?
There can be several answers to this question. However, generally, you have three options:
- You can either contact your own insurance company so that they can begin processing your property damage claim and let them get you into a rental car if you have the coverage.
- You can contact the insurance company of the at-fault party, with the understanding that they may not act as quickly as you would like and they are not required to get you into a rental car the same day.
- You can pay for the rental yourself and submit the receipts for reimbursement later for review by the insurance company.
When will my car get fixed?
Generally, cars are evaluated and repairs begin within a few days or weeks after a car accident. It really depends on the insurance company and the facts surrounding the accident.
The officer gave the at-fault party a ticket, why isn’t the insurance company paying for my damages?
There are several reasons for this, however, generally speaking, the issuance of a ticket by a peace officer is not binding for purposes of determining fault of the car accident. As a result, the insurance company for the at-fault party gets to investigate the facts and circumstances of the car accident to determine whether they believe their insured will be held liable. Typically, once this investigation is complete, the insurance company will begin working with you on repairs to the property damage. The injury portion of your claim is separate and handled very differently. We recommend a free consultation with a car accident attorney to fully understand the injury claim.
What do I do when the insurance company says they will not pay for anything?
This largely depends on why the insurance company is saying that. If the insurance company is saying their insured is not at fault, then you should contact a car attorney right away. If the insurance company is simply not paying for all of your car accident damages immediately, there could be several reasons for this. Generally speaking, it is best to understand that the insurance company does not pay as you go, such as with workers’ compensation claims. The property damage will generally resolve pretty quickly, but the injury portion can take months, or sometimes longer, to finalize. Again, please contact a car accident attorney for a free consultation for a more in-depth analysis of your case.
My car is totaled and I owe more than they will pay. Why aren’t they paying for all of it?
All too often clients have purchased cars and they are “upside down.” This means they owe more than the fair market value of the vehicle. The insurance company and the at-fault party are typically only responsible for the fair market value of the car.
Why isn’t the insurance company paying my medical bills?
There can be several reasons for this and we encourage you to speak to a car accident attorney right away for an in-depth discussion. , generally, speaking the insurance company is not going to pay upfront on the injury claim. The medical bills remain your responsibility and are used to support your claim against the at-fault driver.
Why do the doctors refuse to see me because I was in a car accident?
Clients will often have to find a new doctor or may have to rely on an emergency room for care. These are things that we discuss in detail in your free consultation.
The other driver does not have insurance. What do I do?
Call your insurance. If your insurance can’t help you, contact a car accident attorney to review your options. This is why we encourage everyone to make sure they know what coverages are available within their own policy. The number of uninsured drivers in Texas varies each year. Estimates of uninsured drivers on the road in Texas range from 13.3% to 22% at any given time. While that percentage may sound low, Texas is ranked 19th in the nation for uninsured drivers.
