  Should I give a recorded statement about my auto accident?

The short answer is no, you should not give a recorded statement about your auto accident until you have spoken with an attorney. Auto accidents usually leave victims shaken and disorientated which could cause you give a statement that is conflicting or lacking important details. As the days and weeks go by you could remember important details that may help your case or new information from police reports or witnesses could shed more light on your auto accident. It is best to wait to give a statement until all information is present. Remember, the insurance company may not always have your best interests in mind and anything you say to them can be used against you in court.

Do I have a case?

 If you have been injured or had property damage as a result of an accident and another person is at fault, then the short answer is yes, you do have a case against the negligent party. There are many factors that will determine the degree and strength of your case and DML will need to assess your claim and discuss all of your options with you. 

 Are there time limits to filing a lawsuit?

The State of Texas has a 2 year statute of limitation beginning on the date of the initial injury on most lawsuits arising from an auto accident. It is imperative that you contact DML immediately after your accident so that he can begin working to resolve your case before the statute of limitation expires.

 How long will a lawsuit take? 

 There is no standard answer to this question. Some cases are resolved quickly, while other cases take time to be resolved especially if your case goes to trial. DML can better assess the probable timeline of you case when he meets with you about the details of your claim.
