A Frisco car accident lawyer from Underwood Law Office can secure financial recovery for you. Injuries or a loved one’s death may entitle you to coverage for your losses.
We stand up for people who have been needlessly harmed by others. Let us identify the liable parties and seek fair awards for you.
Types of Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident Case
As the location of more than 200,000 residents and countless visitors, Frisco sees many car accidents—and each one has a completely unique story.
Our firm will learn the facts of your accident, carefully noting the losses that you have suffered. We may recover compensation for:
- Vehicle repairs
- Replacement of your vehicle (if it is totaled)
- Ambulance transport
- Emergency medical care
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical equipment required for your injuries
- Lost income
- Lost earning power
- Lost bonuses and employer-matched retirement contributions
- Pain and suffering
Every victim suffers unique losses. It is our firm’s job to identify what your losses are.
What Is a Car Accident Case Worth?
The value of your losses will determine the value of your case. There is no standard value for car accident cases. So, our team will determine your case’s value by:
- Identifying every loss
- Determining how long a specific loss (like lost income) will affect you
- Projecting the future value of your loss
- Calculating the total of your present and future losses
The value of your case is the amount that we will seek through a settlement.
Will You Receive a Settlement for Your Accident?
Our team will do everything possible to settle your case. A settlement can refer to:
- Compensation given by the insurance company
- An award given by a court of law
Your lawyer may have one shot at negotiating a settlement. They will not leave the negotiating table until they have exhausted all efforts, including:
- Presenting witness testimony
- Presenting expert testimony
- Making oral points that support your case
- Presenting evidence of negligence
- Presenting proof of losses
- Explaining why your case is worth what it is worth
We expect pushback from insurance companies and attorneys. However, Underwood Law Office will not allow you to be taken advantage of. We will fight for every cent of compensation that you deserve.
We’ve Recovered Millions for Injured Claimants in Frisco
We could go on all day about our commitment to your case’s success. However, our results speak louder than our words. Some of our case results include:
- A $1.7 million settlement. Our client’s car hydroplaned while he drove a company car. We found that defective tires caused the accident and pursued his damages accordingly.
- A $750,000 settlement. Our client suffered serious injuries in a low-speed car accident. We negotiated with the liable insurer to recover compensation for his healthcare expenses.
- A $201,798 court award. Our client suffered a neck injury after being sideswiped by another vehicle. We presented his case in court and recovered compensation for his economic and noneconomic damages.

Our firm is dedicated to obtaining justice for the injured. We also represent those who have lost loved ones in car accidents. Frisco is one of our primary practice regions, and we are familiar with legal proceedings in the city.
You can trust our firm to handle your case because that is precisely what we will do. While you recover from your injuries or work through the grief of losing a loved one, our team will:

- Devise a strategy for pursuing compensation
- Gather evidence
- Document your losses

- Create and file your claim or lawsuit
Your lawyer will also defend your rights. Our team protects you by dealing directly with insurers and attorneys. Without interacting directly with you, it may be far more difficult for these parties to:
- Intimidate you
- Confuse you
- Pressure you into cheap settlements
- Violate your rights
You should have high expectations for Underwood Law Office. Our team has high standards for ourselves.
Is There a Deadline for Filing Your Case?
There could be a deadline for filing. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 generally allows you to file a personal injury lawsuit up to two years after your accident. Time can fly by. So, it is important that you retain legal help as soon as possible.
Even if it has been more than two years since your accident, reach out to Underwood Law Office. Your case could be an exception to general deadlines.
What Should I Do After Getting Hurt in a Car Accident?
After their collisions, many clients ask us: “What should I do now?” So, we always tell them to take these steps.
Visit a Healthcare Provider
Each injury, no matter how minor, requires medical attention. For example, even a tiny cut could get infected if left untreated. In addition, when you visit a doctor, not only will they treat your condition, but the documents they give you could support your claim.
Take Photos Throughout Your Recovery Period
You want to show the insurance company that you sustained severe injuries because of the collision their client caused. Take photos of your external injuries during your recovery period, such as any bruises or lacerations. This way, you can present your case in the best possible light.
Keep Everything Related to Your Case
Underwood Law Office will investigate your situation and gather evidence. However, during your recovery period, you will likely get information related to your case, including:
- Your injury-related invoices, billing statements, and receipts
- The dates of your follow-up appointments
- The names of your healthcare providers and medications
- Photos of your vehicle’s damages
You’ll want to hand over any documents related to your case to your attorney. They can review it while building your claim.
Let Your Lawyer Handle All Insurance Matters
With our team on your side, you don’t have to deal with the insurance company in any capacity. We will answer all necessary phone calls, emails, and messages while you recover. We will also:
- File your insurance claim against the liable party’s policy
- Send your demand letter

Our Team Will Prove Your Case’s Legal Elements
The American Bar Association (ABA) explains the process of proving that negligence caused your accident. However, it’s easier said than done––especially if you don’t know what the process entails.
While you focus on healing, we will prove negligence by asserting:
- Another party owed you a duty of care. For instance, all motorists must drive cautiously on public roadways.
- The other party violated their duty of care by acting recklessly or carelessly.
- The other party’s actions caused your accident and subsequent injuries.
- You incurred various losses, including medical bills, lost income, and other expenses.
Proving these elements is central to your case’s success.
