Little Elm, TX asked in Criminal Law, Appeals / Appellate Law, Car Accidents and Civil Litigation

Q: Can a driver that hit you from behind get out of paying for damages?

I have lost a suite because driver has a lawyer and I don’t. I submitted all evidence but the courts says I didn’t submit properly! She even admits to hitting my vehicle but her insurance company won’t pay up. Do you have anyone that can help! Thanks in advance! I live in Denton county.

A: This is not a lawyer referral service; it's only a question and answer board. It isn't fully clear what happened to you in terms of the manner in which you say you lost your case. But it sounds like you do not have time to wait around for a response. You should start contacting attorneys in Texas without delay to see if they could review your file with you to determine if you have grounds for an appeal, or other options. If you do, you will probably have a very short time window in which to act, and the grounds by which you would be permitted to appeal (if you have them), would be narrow. Start making phone calls or Internet searches this weekend, or Monday morning and get on this without delay. It's possible that your options could be short-lived in duration. Good luck

A: You need to consult with a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn in your county. They give free consults. If it's a small claims court issue, you have a right to appeal. If not you still have a right to appeal but it's more technical. Talk to a TTLA member as soon as possible.
