Do I need a personal injury lawyers

Asked over 2 years ago - El Paso, TX

On October 5th 2011, my children and I were involved in a head on collision. My car was totaled and it was the other drivers fault for not failure to yield the right of way. He presented proof of insurance but then found out he had none. My son and myself were taken to the hospital but since we don't have health insurance they didn't help much. By October 19th I started having seizures and have had 4 by now. I was hospitalized and have enormous bills. The results were that because of the accident I sustained damage to my temporal lobe when the airbag hit me and Because of this I also have memory loss. The guy that hit us gave us 6000.00$ for the first hospital visit on the day of the accident but since then I have been hospitalized twice and I have had loss of wages.I don't know what to d

    Answered . This is a case where you should not have to deal with this on your own, especially in light of the nature of your injuries. I'd suggest contacting a good PI lawyer in your area to assist you. Even if there are some issues with insurance coverage covering the adverse driver, there may well be a number of other ways to ensure that you get compensated for all your inuries and medical costs.

    Answered . If you have uninsured motorists or personal injury protection insurance coverage then you should definitely call your insurance agent. You might also consider calling a products liability attorney to take a look at the vehicle, if the vehicle is still available. Other than that you should call an attorney to at the minimum and get some advice on what other options are available to you.
    Thanks

    Answered . You should definitely contact a personal injury lawyer. Even though the other driver did not have insurance, you can still try to collect from him directly. Also, if you can get a court judgment against the other driver, you can get his license suspended. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you might be eligible for some help with medical expenses from the Texas Crime Victims Compensation Fund. An attorney can help you.
