Car Wreck

After a car accident, you need to focus on your own and your family’s recovery.

If you or a loved one has ever been in a car accident, you are aware of the costs involved. Medical expenses, follow-up visits, and car repairs add up, and the money lost from missed work compounds the problem. But under Texas law, someone else might be required to cover these expenses, particularly if the car accident wasn’t your fault.
The Suniga Law Firm is prepared to rally our entire staff behind you to ensure that you not only get the direction and support you require, but also the payment you are due to cover your unforeseen expenses.
