Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident?

No one likes the bureaucracy and hassle of going to court, so many people involved in car accidents wonder whether they actually have to appear before a judge.

The answer to this question is often no, but a lot of variables can affect your obligation to show up in court.

Victims of Vehicle Accidents

If you’re the victim of a car accident, you usually don’t have to show up in court, but it is advisable in many circumstances.

That’s because going to court can often get you the highest possible amount of compensation for your injuries, as opposed to simply accepting a settlement out of court.

Keep in mind that accident victims still aren’t excused from reporting their collisions to the Department of Motor Vehicles, which must take place if anyone involved was injured or incurred over $1,000 in damages.

An experienced car accident lawyer can help you determine the best course of action to take.

Parties Responsible for Vehicle Accidents

Those who cause vehicle accidents usually have little say in whether the case goes to court. To take the at-fault party to court, you will have to follow certain legal procedures, such as filing a case within two years due to Texas’ statute of limitations.

With very few exceptions, those who are summoned to court will have to attend.

All involved parties should examine whether they were primarily responsible for the crash because Texas uses a rule called modified comparative negligence.

This piece of legislation makes it so that if a party holds a majority of the liability for the crash51 percent or morehe or she is not eligible to receive a cent of compensation. Therefore, if you have even an inkling of doubt about the extent to which you’re liable, you will likely want to conduct further examination with an attorney’s help.
