    on a contingency basis gambling along with us that we would be able to obtain a settlement from the insurers of the negligent parties He kept our expenses low while putting together a compelling case including relevant expert testimony that compelled the defendants to agree to a mediation After dealing with a couple of other lawyers earlier on lawyers who were not much interested in making a real effort to help us we came to Trevor with much of our statute of limitations behind us and he was still able to work quickly and effectively to bring us a positive conclusion I strongly recommend Trevor Taylor to anybody that needs assistance in getting compensation from insurers or anybody else that is accustomed to winning by simply refusing to accept responsibility in the confidence that the injured party will not find effective legal help to force the issue Client Review Trevor represented me along with two other people when we were hit by an intoxicated driver in May 2010 From the very beginning of the ordeal of fighting the insurance company Trevor was available patient and really took the time to explain all the milestones and what we should expect from the process He fought for us and fought hard the whole way We all received settlements that were several multiples more than we ever thought would have been possible He was able to secure a settlement worth hundreds of thousands of dollars for us and I couldn t be happier He gets amazing results that I have not seen from my experience dealing with other lawyers I recommend him enthusiastically and without reservation Client Review I was recently a client of Trevor Taylor in a personal injury case His skills as an attorney are excellent and he showed a genuine

    of liability If you can show the other auto driver was negligent you must then prove your damages The starting point for most car wreck claims are medical expenses Texas law permits recovery for past and future medical expenses At the outset of a case I need to know what injuries you sustained and what treatment you received for them I will then order your bills and records from your doctors and health care providers and itemize the past medical expenses you have incurred I may talk directly to your doctors to get a fuller description of your injury or to get a projection of any future medical care you may need In addition to medical expenses Texas law permits you to recover for lost time from work I will investigate your work history and ask about any time missed from work either because of the incapacitating nature of the injury or because of the need to get medical treatment for the injury As your Austin auto accident lawyer I will follow up with a statement from your employer documenting the time missed because of the injury If it is anticipated that you will miss work in the future because of the injury I will develop that evidence as well In addition to economic damages Texas law permits recovery of non economic damages like physical pain mental anguish physical impairment and disfigurement I develop evidence of pain resulting from an auto accident by talking to you about the injury and reviewing the relevant medical records I develop evidence of physical impairment things that you couldn t do after the auto accident that you could do before by talking to family friends and co workers Evidence of scarring either from the accident itself of a surgery resulting from the auto accident can support an award of disfigurement damages Finally in evaluating an auto accident claim I look to see what auto insurance is involved and if the other driver is insurced When a new client comes to meet me to be their Austin auto accident lawyer they often times have the name of the carrier and policy number of the other driver having obtained it at the scene of the accident But just having insurance doesn t mean it is adequate to pay the claim The minimum liability policy in Texas today is 30 000 00 and there are an increasing number of people driving around with that bare minimum That minimum limits policy is often inadequate to pay a claim If I determine the other driver has inadequate coverage I will investigate your auto coverage to determine if you carry Uninsured Underinsured Motorist Coverage Uninsured motorist coverage comes into play if you have been hit by an uninsured driver In that case your auto carrier will pay up to the limits of its liability the amounts in damages that the uninsured driver would owe Underinsured motorist coverage is more complicated For your auto insurer to pay you have to first
