Wrongful Death Lawsuits
If your family member suffered fatal injuries due to an auto accident, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

Our team is ready to represent you in your suit.
Texas Laws Related to Auto Accidents
One of the most common types of automobile accidents on Texas roads is rear-end crashes. Often, it’s assumed that these fender benders are harmless, but this is simply untrue. Even if the rear-ender collides with you at a low speed, you could suffer severe injuries and damage to your vehicle. Such injuries can result in lifelong or long-term medical care, disabilities, or time off from work. Some of these injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Head injuries.
- Neck injuries.
- Spinal injuries.
So, how can you afford to pay all the medical expenses related to your car accident injuries? With the right legal representation, the at-fault driver can be found liable and must compensate you for your losses and expenses.
Proving Your Personal Injury Case in Court
Several factors must be proven for a solid case against a negligent driver. This information is not always easy to compile, and it’s even more difficult to prove in court. That’s why Godsey Martin, PC is here to assist you with proving these factors:
- While operating the motor vehicle, the driver was careless.
- The negligence of the driver is the direct cause of the crash.
- The auto accident directly caused your injuries.
- You suffered property damage, lost wages, medical expenses, and possibly other damages because of the incident.

About Insurance Companies
Truth be told, the other person’s insurance company is supposed to provide you with assistance after a car crash injury. However, they’re rarely on your side. For them, the number one priority is protecting their bottom line. They want to compensate you with as little cash as possible to ensure their profit margins stay high.
Insurance adjusters use various tactics to limit the amount you are awarded in these cases, such as:
- Questioning your injury’s seriousness.
- Insisting that they are pre-existing injuries.
- Arguing that you are the responsible party in the car collision.
- Offering you a lowball settlement that doesn’t cover your losses, damages, and injuries.
You must know the laws related to personal injury claims in Texas to combat these tactics. That’s why you need a legal professional with experience fighting against insurance companies in auto accident cases.
