IF YOU’RE HURT IN A CAR WRECK, OUR ATTORNEYS CAN HELP
After a car accident, everything changes. In an instant, you may be left seriously injured. Your recovery may take weeks or months, or you may even be permanently disabled. Between medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses, the financial cost of a single accident can be overwhelming – and that’s while you’re trying to physically recover.
Unfortunately, car insurance companies often try to treat accident victims like vehicles, not people. They think a single, relatively small payment can “fix” you, and afterward, you’ll be fine. They overlook, or deliberately ignore, the long-term cost of the car crash. That’s not justice.
Did you know, according to the Texas Department of Transportation:
- There were over 12,000 serious injury crashes in Texas last year
- Over 15,000 people sustained a serious injury from those crashes
- There were no deathless days on Texas roads last year
As experienced car accident attorneys, we understand the risks and challenges that Texas drivers face. Don’t leave your health and financial stability in the hands of your insurance agent. That’s why you deserve your own car accident attorney fighting for your rights.

TYPES OF WRECKS WE HANDLE
Chad Jones Law has been handling complex car accident cases for over 21 years. There are many reasons accidents happen and we’re familiar with all of them.
Our Expert Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do RIGHT AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
First, make sure the accident scene is safe, then call the police. Exchange insurance information and contact information with the other drivers involved in the accident. Get contact information for any witnesses and the badge number of the police officer investigating the scene. Keep your comments to anyone else at the scene brief, and don’t say anything admitting fault — stick to the facts of what happened.
SHOULD I TALK TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY?
No, don’t speak with the insurance company except to let them know that you were in a wreck. You’re not required to answer their questions, and you’re not required to speak with an insurance company representing another driver. Remember that the insurance companies are not on your side. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible, and they’ll use anything you say for that purpose.
IF I FEEL OK, DO I STILL NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR?
Yes, see a doctor right away. It is common with car accident injuries for there to be delayed onset symptoms, like traumatic brain injuries or damage to internal organs. Seeing a doctor right away is the best way to make sure you’re not injured. Tell the doctor who treats you that you were involved in an accident, and follow their instructions.
DO I NEED A LAWYER AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
Yes. Contacting a car accident lawyer right away is the best way to negotiate with the insurance company to make sure you get fair compensation for all of your accident-related expenses while you recuperate. A lawyer can thoroughly investigate your accident and fight for full and fair compensation for your injuries and other losses. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they don’t get paid unless they win, so there is no up-front cost and no obligation.
HOW MUCH IS MY CLAIM WORTH?
Because every case is unique, there is no common answer to this question, but compensation for your car accident can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, modifications to your home or car, and lost earning potential. Punitive damages can sometimes apply, as well, in some cases.
WILL IT TAKE LONG TO RESOLVE MY CASE?
That depends on the case. We pride ourselves on working quickly and efficiently for our clients, but it’s important to remember that your case needs to be resolved with a favorable result for you. That’s because you often only get one settlement.
We are available to answer all of your questions for free and help you determine the timeline and process of your case. Set up a free consultation and speak with an attorney right away.
CAR INSURANCE COMPANIES
Even your own insurance company may be more interested in reducing their own costs than compensating you for your wreck.

YOU DESERVE JUSTICE, CHAD JONES LAW, P.C. CAN HELP.
Car accidents may seem like simple cases. But even if the other driver caused the crash – for instance, if you were in a rear-end collision – things are rarely as clear as they seem. The insurance company may try to downplay the extent of your injuries or claim they were due to a pre-existing condition. And if fault is disputed, the other driver and the insurance company may fight to reduce your compensation.
Meanwhile, you’re trying to focus on your recovery. If you don’t have health insurance, or if your insurance doesn’t cover all of your medical expenses, we can work with your healthcare providers to try to get the medical care you deserve through an attorney’s lien arrangement. We can help find the best providers to help you get the care you deserve, and we can take care of your legal issues so that you can focus on your recovery.
We’re focused on building the strongest legal case possible and helping you fight for justice. Our team can review your Texas Accident Report and other important information relevant to your case, including skid marks, eyewitness accounts, and property damage. We can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and negotiate for a settlement that pays for your accident-related expenses. And if they won’t make a fair offer, you’ll have an experienced legal team prepared to fight for you in court.
