Recovery for Catastrophic Injuries Sustained in Houston Speeding Accident

If you or your loved one has received a catastrophic injury as the result of being involved in a Houston speeding accident, there are different ways you may be able to be compensated for your injuries.

You can file a claim against the speeding driver’s automobile insurance policy to seek recovery. If your injuries exceed his policy limits, you can also bring a lawsuit against him to recover the excess. If the driver did not have automobile insurance, you may be able to file a claim against your own insurance company to recover damages, provided you had uninsured motorist coverage. Again, if your damages exceed the policy limits, you may file suit against the driver to recover the difference.

A Houston catastrophic injury lawyer can help you determine whom to file a claim against, and the amount of damages you may be entitled to recover.
