Car Accidents

Beaumont Texas Auto Accident Lawyer

Most personal injury attorneys have experience handling car accident cases. But while car crash cases are often considered routine, each case is unique. At The Mazzola Law Firm, PLLC, we pursue them with the same zeal we apply to complex product liability cases. We work hard to get results in every case, because we know the difference that a successful outcome can make in the lives of our clients.

Do I Have a Case?

After a car accident, you may be confused about whether or not you have a case. To have a viable case, your accident must meet two criteria:

  • The accident was at least partially caused by someone else’s negligence.
  • The accident caused you or a family member to suffer bodily injuries.

Our Texas car accident attorneys stand ready to answer any questions you may have including whether or not someone’s acts or omissions rise to the level of negligence. If your accident meets both of these criteria, contact us and we will immediately begin building your case today.

What Do I Do When the Insurance Company Calls Me?

Once they are notified of your accident, representatives from either your insurance or the at-fault party’s insurance company may contact you. It’s best if you avoid speaking with them. Innocent comments can be manipulated to make it look like the accident was your fault or to minimize your injuries. They may also try to pressure you into quickly signing a settlement agreement for an amount far less than what your case is worth.

An experienced Texas car wreck lawyer will take into account your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and all other compensable damages, to make certain you get the compensation you need to cover the true costs of your accident. We’re used to dealing with insurance company tactics, so when the insurance company calls, hang up and contact us instead. We’ll help you figure out whether or not a settlement offer is fair, and we’ll talk to the insurance company for you.

If you have questions about your car accident, we have answers.

Seeking Full Compensation for You

At The Mazzola Law Firm, PLLC, we have a simple philosophy — we do not let the insurance company control the case. We work proactively to build each case element by element, establishing liability, documenting all losses and seeking full and complete compensation for our client. Our firm does not take cases with the intention of settling them for less than they are worth. We will work tenaciously at all stages of the legal process to get results for you.

Results-Oriented Representation

In your case, attorney Brian N. Mazzola will direct a comprehensive effort designed to obtain the best possible result for you. Working with an accident reconstruction specialist or other professionals, Mr. Mazzola will establish the cause of the car wreck and the liability of the at- fault driver. He will consult with your doctor or other medical specialists to determine the medical care and follow-up treatment you will need to recover to the fullest extent possible. Our firm will calculate and place a value on all your financial and emotional losses for inclusion in your claim.

Why Hire Us?

When misfortune such as a car accident or other personal injury occurs, people often believe that they can only be fully compensated if they hire a large law firm to handle their case. But many accident victims quickly discover what big-firm representation often lacks: Personal Attention and Respect. The client’s calls are not promptly returned. They rarely meet with their attorney in person. They begin to feel more like a case number than a human being.

The Mazzola Law Firm is different. When you hire us, you will be provided Mr. Mazzola’s personal cell phone number and can expect his counsel, advice and guidance throughout the entire litigation process. Day or Night. Tuesday or Saturday.

The aftermath of an automobile accident can be chaotic and quickly turn you and your family’s lives upside down. From the doctors’ appointments, the missed work and the medical bills piling up – to the relentless pain, anxiety and lack of sleep – from the inability to take care of personal responsibilities to the inability to engage in pre-accident hobbies and activities.  Fighting with an insurance company adjuster over the value of your injury claim is the last thing you should be doing. Let us handle the insurance company. Let us fight this fight for you, so that you can focus on getting better.
