Do you have to tell your insurance company?

In Texas, insurance companies have ways to get out of having to pay for the accident caused by their insured. This is so because, the insured has an affirmative duty to inform "or give notice" to the insurance company about potential exposure to liability.

For example, we represented an injured person and won at the trial. The insurance company filed an appeal, we won that too, yet, the insurance gets another bite at the apple when now, they are claiming that, the insured never gave them "notice." I guess they forgot that they filed the appeal.

This is just an example of how insurance companies used their power (money) to get out of paying for their responsibilities. This is why they are rich, and we are not! If you have a problem with your insurance company, give us a call (210) 979-9777 or visit our websites: http://www.thebaezlawfirm.com or http://www.san-antonio-lawyer-attorney.com

What to do when you have an accident

Many people are not aware of what to do when they have an accident. Fortunately, many of you will never have to do deal with this situation; however, if you do, then you should know what to do. When a person causes an accident or when the person is not responsible for the accident, the actions taken at the scene should be the same.

First, check to see if any one is injured. If a person is injured, call an ambulance. This is important because a life could be at risk, and the prompt actions of person could be the difference between life and death. Next, make sure there is no more potential for further accidents. If the scene is unsafe, call the police and wait for their instructions. If the scene is safe, then exchange insurance information.

Next, gather names and phone numbers of witnesses. Many people forget this step and that is the difference on the determination of liability. If possible, take pictures of the accident. This could help you later on in the case.

Finally, call your insurance company and take directions from them.

NEVER admit to any liability at the scene. This is when many people go wrong. It is not the job of the people involved in the accident to determine liability, that is the job for the insurance adjuster.

If you, or some one you love has been injured in an accident, give us a call (210) 979-9777. You can visit our websites at: The Baez Law Firm, P.C. or San Antonio Lawyers.

What is a "police brutality" case?

Depending on which side of the spectrum (political, social, economical) you are in, you may either believe that there is no police brutality in Texas or yes there is. The Baez Law Firm has been fighting for injured Texans as a result of police brutality for some time, and so, we believe that there is way too much brutality!

42 U.S.C § 1983 is the main source of law when police brutality is at issue. The statute states: "Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable."

Based on this law, our law firm has successfully litigated numerous "police brutality" cases in Texas. If you or some one you love has been a victim of police brutality, give us a call (210) 979-9777.
