Auto / Motorcycle Accidents
Texas law includes the minimum amount of motor vehicle liability insurance coverage of $30,000 per person in 1 accident, and $60,000 for 2 or more persons in 1 accident. Not too many people know that there is a maximum compensation of $30,000.00 per person involved in the accident; and if 2 or more persons are in the vehicle there is a limit of $30,000.00 meaning $60,000.00 in total. If 3, 4, or 10 people are in the vehicle the maximum compensation of 1 accident is $60,000.00 in total which has to be divided between all parties depending on the situation.
Many injuries do not show up immediately but after 2 to 14 days of the accident. Especially spinal injuries (back and neck) these injuries manifest with arm or leg pains, also with numbing of arms and legs. Sometimes the pain can be intense and then it calms and comes back again stronger. There are many levels of injuries depending the intensity, small injuries include disc bulges and more serious injuries include disc protrusions, disc herniation, disc ruptures and spinal fracture. You can get treatment or surgery depending the medical conditions or economic sources (personal medical insurance or high insurance level policy). You can get limited treatment depending on your insurance coverage. It is the attorney’s job to advise and consult with the client to determine the situation and avoid any excessive medical expenses.
