Proudly Serving College Station and Bryan, TX

A side-impact accident, like any type of auto accident, can be a potentially life-interrupting event. This type of accident can leave you with serious injuries, damage your property in expensive ways, prevent you from returning to work while you recover from your injuries, and generally leave you dealing with a number of financial and personal burdens. While it might seem like a simple enough process to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company by yourself, these organizations frequently employ a number of tactics to reduce your payout. In some cases, they may even try to deny that you’re owed any payment at all. This is why it’s best to call a seasoned side-impact accident attorney like Brian C. Guttierez.

For more than 17 years, Brian C. Gutierrez and his team have been advocating for justice on behalf of families in the Bryan, TX, and College Station areas, and they’d love nothing more than to help you fight for the compensation you’re owed after a side-impact accident.

Gutierrez is no stranger to success. He’ll fight for your fullest possible compensation and won’t hesitate to take matters to court if the insurance company isn’t playing fairly.

Common Injuries After a Side-Impact Accident

In addition to property damage, a side-impact accident (often referred to as a T-bone accident) can potentially inflict the following injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries can be quite serious and may have lingering impacts that negatively affect your quality of life and ability to perform normal daily activities.
  • Spinal cord injuries can leave you partially or fully paralyzed. They can also cause a loss of sensation, lingering pain, and other lasting effects.
  • Internal injuries like organ damage or internal bleeding might not always be visible right away. This is why medical attention is recommended as soon as you’ve been in any kind of auto accident.
  • Bone fractures can be quite painful and sometimes require an extended healing period, during which time you might not be able to perform the duties of your job.
  • Soft tissue injuries can damage your muscles and tendons, causing lasting pain and chronic swelling that limits your mobility.

What Are Your Legal Options After a Side-Impact Accident?

If you’ve been involved in a T-bone accident, the first and most important step is to ensure that you receive any and all medical attention you need. Make sure you’re thoroughly examined by a professional who can clear you for injuries and that you receive any treatment that might be required. Your next step will be to reach out to an experienced side-impact accident lawyer serving the Bryan, TX, and College Station areas—Brian C. Gutierrez.

Our team will begin the process by filing a claim with the insurance company representing the other party involved in the accident. Insurance companies aren’t very concerned with how much the accident has actually financially impacted you. Their primary focus will be on doing anything they can to establish that the amount owed is as little as possible. This is why it’s best to employ the expertise of a seasoned attorney like Mr. Gutierrez.

Brian and his team will gather evidence, collect expert testimony, and conduct a thorough investigation before pushing for the highest possible settlement. Should the negotiation process fail to yield your ideal result, we won’t hesitate to take things to court and argue your case in front of a judge. We offer our clients total support and will be with you throughout every step of the process to ensure that you’re able to enjoy total peace of mind.

What Damages Can I Pursue After a Side-Impact Accident?

Economic Damages

Anything that can be assigned a definitive price tag will fall under the banner of “economic damages.” This will include damage to your car and property, the cost of your required medical treatment, and any wages that you were unable to collect because of the accident.

Non-Economic Damages

Psychological trauma, pain and suffering, and a number of other intangible costs can also be included in your settlement. We’ll consult with expert witnesses who can credibly suggest the non-economic damages that should be pursued after your accident.

Punitive Damages

This type of damage is typically sought if it can be clearly established that malice, fraud, or exceptionally gross negligence were in any way behind your accident. Punitive damages are also sometimes referred to as exemplary damages.
