The impact of a motor vehicle crash can be traumatic and life-altering, causing physical and emotional harm that lasts long after the initial impact. While nobody ever expects to be involved in a car collision when they leave the house, the unfortunate reality is that they do occur frequently — in fact, the Texas Department of Transportation reported that “1 person was injured every 2 minutes 12 seconds” in Texas during 2021.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

5 Star Reviews

I was really glad I hired Robert White. I had a severe back injury and the workers compensation carrier continued to deny my surgery. Mr. White made sure I had my surgery and that the insurance company paid for it. I did not have to wait until the lawsuit was finalized to have my surgery. I am so pleased with his work and his staff was very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process. I was so pleased with his work, that I hired him on another accident. He did an excellent job on the second accident too.

Do You Have a Case for Compensation?

Collisions happen in Odessa and across West Texas every day for a wide variety of reasons. You may be able to seek compensation if you were hurt in a car wreck due to one of these, or any, irresponsible decisions made by another driver:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving too fast 
  • Road rage or malicious intent
  • Improper signaling or disregard for traffic signals

A wide range of injuries can result from a motor vehicle accident. If you suffered one of these common injuries or any injury that was not your fault, we’re here to help:

  • TBI — Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can result from an impact to the head or a sudden jarring motion like whiplash. This sort of injury can negatively impact the lifestyle of the injured individual in significant ways, from balance and coordination problems to cognitive issues and marked personality shifts.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries — Damage to soft tissue ranges from common bruises that take only a few days to heal to more serious injuries like torn muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which can create long-term or even lifelong pain and disability.
  • Spine and Neck Injuries — Your neck and spine are some of the most crucial players when it comes to your body’s overall ability to function properly. The nerves that run through your spine allow you to do everything from wiggling your toes to breathing!
    Suffering serious damage to your neck or spine can result in chronic pain, loss of motion and sensation, and even death.
  • Loss of Limb — Many people involved in severe wrecks lose the use of one or more limbs. This can result from an injury that paralyzes you, or it can be the physical loss of a limb due to amputation.

Mental Injuries — There are also many invisible injuries you might suffer in a car accident. These can include trauma, panic attacks, depression, personality changes, and more. You deserve compensation for mental anguish as much as any visible physical injuries.

Negligence, the legal term referring to irresponsibility or carelessness, is the key factor for compensation in any personal injury case, automobile cases included. To prove the at-fault party’s negligence, you must demonstrate three elements:

  • The other driver acted in a manner that was without care or concern for the safety of others,
  • the other driver’s recklessness led to the collision taking place, and
  • The collision was the direct cause of the injuries you suffered.

Proving these three factors can get complicated and requires patience, tenacity, and legal knowledge. For this reason, it’s vital that you speak with an experienced Odessa, TX, auto accident lawyer who can help you build your case and give you the best chance of receiving every penny you’re owed.

Damages Available in an Odessa Car Accident Claim

It’s never easy to tell right out of the gate what your case is worth because every injury case is unique. An attorney drawing you in with a big figure before they have examined your case is a red flag.

That being said, some factors are taken into account in all injury cases when accounting for damages. For example, you will likely be able to receive compensation for all of your medical bills incurred because of the accident. This includes your doctor’s visits, medications, transportation to and from appointments, surgical procedures, physical therapy, and other accident-related medical expenses.

You may also be compensated for the wages you have lost while unable to work, as well as the wages you might potentially have earned in the future during your recovery. Even invisible injuries like trauma, loss of comfort and companionship, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, depression, and other mental injuries may be accounted for in your settlement.

What Does a Car Accident Lawyer Do?

You may be feeling reasonably overwhelmed by the legal process of seeking damages for your injuries. Fortunately, a qualified attorney at Braker White can help you navigate this process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

The legal system can be draining, and mistakes can be especially costly when you’re in such a difficult position. However, with the help of a skilled attorney, you can avoid these mistakes, make sure you file on time, and guarantee a fair settlement for your injuries.

Braker White is known for trustworthy and experienced legal advice. Braker White is a compassionate advocate for injured Texans, working to ensure that their clients never accept less than their claim is worth or agree to anything that could rob them of their rights.

In fact, Braker White can even take over negotiating your settlement, allowing you to focus on recovering from your injuries. Our office will put together all the necessary documents and evidence to build a strong case proving that you deserve the compensation you’re seeking. We may even be able to negotiate for damages that you didn’t know you could receive!

What Comes Next?

Contact us for a free case review. Not only do you not have to pay for it, but you don’t even have to get off your sofa. We can do it over the phone or through a video chat online.

A solid case is essential in fighting for maximum compensation. We will gather all of your medical bills, evidence that you cannot work, evidence from the scene of the crash, and everything else we can use to prove that your injuries require the compensation we are demanding, and that the other driver’s careless behavior caused all of it.

The insurance adjuster will fight hard to get you to sign off on a lowball settlement. We will negotiate and fight hard to get you the full compensation you deserve. Negotiation is a back-and-forth process that can take quite some time, even months. We ask for your patience during this process, but be assured that your car wreck lawyer will fight for your rights every step of the way, and we will keep you as informed and involved as you want to be the entire time.

It’s very rare for a case to end up in court. A trial isn’t in anyone’s best interests. Court trials are expensive, time-consuming, and all-or-nothing in their outcomes. The vast majority of cases are resolved out of court through negotiation, or even arbitration or mediation when negotiations hit a wall. Sometimes, however, negotiations do break down entirely. If that happens, we will continue to fight for you every step of the way. Robert White and Greta Braker are real West Texas lawyers who care about their clients like family and will fight to protect your rights and seek the compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every injury case in every state has different time limits for taking legal action. For this reason, it’s vitally important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

Legally, you’re free to represent yourself. However, having an experienced Odessa, TX, car accident lawyer on your side will give you the best shot at receiving the money you deserve. An attorney can also take the stress of the legal process off your shoulders so you can focus on recovering from your injuries. Navigating the legal process isn’t easy, but Braker White has helped countless injured individuals across the Midland-Odessa area get the justice and compensation they needed to move forward after their car accidents.

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question but, in general, you probably won’t have to go to court. Most cases are solved through negotiation, which is better for all involved. Sometimes, however, negotiations stall or the insurance company refuses to offer a fair amount and a trial becomes necessary. In the negotiation stage and the courtroom, Braker White will fight hard to get you justice every step of the way.

We work on a contingency basis. This means there are no hidden fees, no upfront fees, and no fees whatsoever unless we win money for you. If we’re unsuccessful, there’s no cost at all. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by contacting Braker White.

Every case is different, so it’s impossible to give a blanket answer to how much your case may be worth. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to money to cover losses, such as your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of comfort and enjoyment of life, emotional trauma, and more. Braker White can review the facts of your accident and determine the true value of your case.

It’s best not to speak with the insurance company yourself. Insurance companies aren’t on your side; they’re trying to reduce their own financial responsibility by getting you to admit fault or accept less than you deserve. If they call, tell them they can talk to the attorneys at Braker White.

If you are partially at fault for your accident, the amount of compensation you are able to seek may be reduced. Texas has a modified comparative negligence law, meaning you are assigned a percentage of fault for the accident, and your compensation is reduced by that amount. For example, suppose you were rear-ended by another vehicle but had a broken taillight. In that case, it could be argued that the other driver wasn’t aware you were slowing down and didn’t have time to brake. In this situation, the court may assign the other driver a fault of 80%, leaving you with 20% of the fault. As a result, your compensation would be reduced by 20%.

When you work with an experienced Odessa, TX, personal injury lawyer at Braker White, you’re working with an attorney dedicated to helping you seek the maximum amount of compensation possible for your losses. Braker White will work hard to help prove you had the lowest amount of responsibility possible for your accident so you can seek the money you deserve.

Pre-existing medical conditions can complicate car accident injury cases. If someone else was at fault for your car accident, they’re still responsible for your injuries. They may even be responsible for worsening your pre-existing condition. That said, your compensation may be reduced because not all of your medical expenses may be directly connected to the accident. If this applies to you, it’s best to hire an experienced attorney at Braker White to help you build the strongest case possible.

Insurance companies won’t pay for medical expenses or other losses until it’s proven that their insured party was at fault, so you need to cover these expenses in the meantime. Several options may be available to help, such as personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. You may also be able to use your health insurance coverage. Keep in mind that you may have to reimburse these insurers if you receive a settlement.

Just like your medical expenses, your lost wages won’t be covered by the insurance company until fault is established. You may be able to use PIP coverage or short- or long-term disability from your employer. These insurers may expect to be reimbursed if you receive a settlement. You should also speak with your employer about additional options, such as paid time off, vacation time, or sick time to help cover your living expenses.

PIP coverage is a type of auto insurance coverage that pays for medical expenses and lost wages for car accident injuries. In Texas, PIP coverage is mandatory coverage for your auto insurance. Still, you have the option to sign a waiver to decline it. The state requires that every driver receive at least $2,500 of PIP coverage, but you can upgrade to $5,000 or $10,000 worth of extra protection.

The simple answer to this is no. The vast majority of car accident settlements come in a lump sum. We will review your case and determine the value of your bills up to this point and use that as a point of reference to decide what costs you might rack up in the future. We’ll then demand a settlement that should cover all of your injuries — past, present, and future. You can’t, however, make the defendant keep paying your bills on an ongoing basis.

Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM coverage) is a clause in some insurance policies that kicks in if the other driver’s insurance policy doesn’t cover them for the full amount of your settlement.

For example, your case might be worth $500,000, but if the other driver’s insurance policy only covers them up to $100,000, you might never get the other $400,000 from them. They will technically owe it to you, but if they don’t have it to pay, it’s hard to collect. If you have UIM coverage on your policy, however, your insurance company may pay some of the remaining compensation up to your policy limit. Not everyone has this kind of coverage on their policy, however, and it only comes into play if your insurance policy has it. If you aren’t sure, you can ask your insurance company or let us review your policy. Get in touch with us to get your free case review today.

Every case is unique. In a perfect world, we will review your case and issue a demand letter, and the other side will pay. But this almost never happens. Negotiations can take a very long time. It’s stressful, and we understand that, but we ask for patience. We will fight for you the entire way, and our only goal is to seek the maximum compensation we can for you while resolving the case as quickly as we can. We will also keep you informed, in the loop, and however involved you want to be the entire time.
