Abilene, Texas is a city of about 120,000 people. Nicknamed “Big Country” to people who know it, Abilene first sprouted its roots in 1881, when a railway route was established through the city via the Texas and Pacific Railway. Back then, the city of Abilene served as a cattle-shipping point. Since that time, the city of Abilene has retained its foundation as a cattle ranching area. The citizens of Abilene work in many different industries, but the ranching industry still has a strong presence in the community. Some oil and gas exploration boomed in the region in the 1980’s, but the surrounding Taylor County has kept its warm appeal. A few highways run through the Abilene area: I-20 and US Route 83, carry local and interstate traffic. Unfortunately, the people of Abilene fall victim to a serious car accident from time to time. In 2009, there were 13 fatal car accidents in Abilene. In 2008, there were 33. Hopefully, the rate of fatal car wrecks will continue to drop in Abilene, but as long as there are serious accidents, there are people who need help. Medical bills can spiral out of control, someone can lose a job due to an accident, and in some cases, a family may lose a loved one.
Whether you were in a car accident that involved being hit by a drunk driver, a city automobile, or a commercial truck, there are experienced Abilene car accident attorneys who can help you and your family seek redress against those who are responsible for the harm.
Abilene Car Accident Attorneys Can Help
Not all personal injury lawyers are created equal. In fact, there are some personal injury lawyers that have never even handled a serious car injury accident case. Experienced car accident attorneys know how to handle the myriad of parties that get involved when there is a car accident: the driver, the owner of the vehicle, insurance companies, adjustors, corporations, police, investigators, just to name a few.
An experienced Abilene car accident attorney can represent your interests, deal with third parties like insurance companies and the other side’s attorney, thereby acting as a buffer between you and those who would like to intimidate you or force you to settle for an inadequate amount. If needed, the attorney can file a claim on your behalf.
Types of Injuries
Abilene car accident lawyers have experience with a wide variety of injuries and accidents. Serious accidents often involve disfigurement, scarring, and other injuries like mental anguish and pain and suffering. Proving mental anguish and pain requires an attorney experienced in car injuries. In addition, protecting your rights and standing up for yourself in the face of an insurance company takes a lawyer who will not be intimidated.
Car accidents occur in many ways. For example: rear end accidents, side swipe accidents (when the car driver switches lanes and does not check out his blind spot well), cars running lights and stop signs causing intersection collisions, speeding, failing to yield the right-of-way, fatigue and, in some circumstances, when alcohol and/or drugs have been consumed by a driver. Each of these types of accidents requires a separate analysis under the law, and each has its own strengths and weakness for purposes of presentation in a courtroom.

- Traumatic Head Injuries (TBI)
- Death of a Family Member
- Fatality in Family
- Neck Injuries/Strain
- Mental Anguish/recurring nightmares
- Pain and Suffering

What can an Abilene car accident do for you?
An Abilene car accident attorney can help you with many things. Aside from filing a lawsuit, an Abilene attorney can: help you find community organizations to help you with psychological trauma, and the grieving process, the attorney can address sky-high medical bills and any creditors that may be hounding you and your family, and the attorney may be able to direct you to medical facilities that other victims where may have been in your same position have received medical care.
Unfortunately, the fall-out created by a car accident often spreads far beyond the isolated car wreck. You may be working with insurance adjusters who try to settle out your case with you as soon as possible, or your vehicle may need more repairs before it is even ready to be on the road. An Abilene car accident attorney may be able to help lift the load off your shoulders. Contact an Abilene car accident attorney to learn about your options.
