An experienced East Texas attorney with a record of results

Texas uses a modified comparative fault system to determine which party is responsible for damages after an accident. If one party is found to be more than 50 percent at fault for the accident, they can’t recover any compensation.

In addition, if a party is found to be only partially responsible for causing the accident, they will receive less compensation. For example, a party is awarded $100,000 in damages but is found to be 20 percent at fault for causing the accident. So, that party’s award will be reduced by 20 percent, and they will receive $80,000.

The insurance companies know how this system works. That’s why they will try to pin at least some of the blame for the accident on you. It’s in their best interests to do this because if they are successful, they save money. They have lawyers who will try to blame you for causing the accident that left you hurt.

That’s why you need an experienced car accident lawyer who knows how to fight back. Attorney Jeff Weinstein has been helping the injured in Henderson County for decades. He knows how to build strong cases that get results.
