Car Accident Lawyer in Austin, TX

There were 436,748 motor vehicle crashes in Texas in 2016. In Austin alone, there were 15,8141. Of those accidents, there were 3,773 motor vehicle deaths.2. 1 person was injured every 2 minutes on Texas roads last year3.

These staggering numbers can lead insurance companies to treat you like a statistic instead of a person.

You may even be inclined to accept the first settlement you are offered by an insurance company. However, the first insurance settlement may not be the amount you are entitled to after a car accident; adjusters will look for any reason to downplay or minimize your injuries.

If you’ve suffered due to a hit-and-run, a drunk driver, distracted driving, or any other car accident causes, we can help. At Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. in Austin, we can take on the insurance companies and the defense lawyers for you.

If you or a loved one have been hurt in a car accident, your first responsibility should be getting the help you need, both medically and legally. Call 512-472-0404 or contact us to let us help work towards what you deserve.

Our Process

To help your case best, we may use an expert car crash reconstructionist to understand exactly what happened at the scene of your accident. Using state-of-the-art technology and engineering skills, our accident reconstruction team answers many questions to get a complete picture of your accident. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • What do the skid marks indicate?
  • What type of surface was involved?
  • What were the weather and road conditions at the time of the accident?
  • What did the police reports show?
  • Was there drunk driving or any other impairment involved?
  • What did the eyewitnesses report?
  • What does the injured victim remember about the accident?
  • What was on the 911 tape?

Our accident reconstructionist will examine the vehicles involved and will inspect the scene. We will find any public data available, such as the timing and phasing sheets for traffic lights. Sometimes small details make all the difference.

We also pore over any photographs that you or anyone else might have taken at the scene of the accident. This includes photos of your injuries related to the car crash. Bruising, contusions, and abrasions are very important to us in telling your story. To an insurance company, if they can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.

From there, we handle both the personal injury and, in some instances, the property damage aspects of your case. We work with Life Care Planners who know what you/your family member will need over their lifetime to address their care post-accident.

We will also pursue many sources of compensation available to you from your insurance policy and the policy of the driver responsible for injuring you. Personal injury protection (PIP), medical expenses, and lost wages could come back to you, along with extra costs discovered by pain and suffering investigation.

In Our Clients’ Words

Len was referred to me by a friend. I didn’t know him at all before meeting him and was very apprehensive toward attorneys in general. Len immediately put me at rest. He is very compassionate, ethical and handles himself with the utmost of integrity. He worked very hard on my case and was clear and up front with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an extraordinary attorney!!!
