If you share fault for a wreck, that does not necessarily mean the end of your case under Texas law. In fact, in the state of Texas, you can be partially at fault for an accident and still recover some compensation, under what is called a comparative fault system.
When we discuss property damage, the first determination that needs to be made is whether the vehicle is a total loss or not. That’s because the valuation process is a little bit different if your car is damaged but repairable versus if your vehicle is a total loss.
After a car accident, first you want to make sure everybody in your vehicle is safe and okay. After you determined that everybody is safe and okay, next you want to call 911 and request that a police officer come to the scene, and if you’re injured, also request that an ambulance come.
