Can I file a car accident lawsuit if I wasn’t wearing a seat belt?
From time to time, I’ll get a call from a potential client about being involved in a serious car crash in which they weren’t wearing their seat belt. There was a situation very recently, where a client was not wearing their seat belt because they were barely getting into their car. In Texas, you do not have to be wearing your seat belt to file a claim. The burden is on every driver out there who gets behind the wheel of a car not to be reckless, negligent, and hurt somebody else in another vehicle or out in public, whether or not they’re wearing a seat belt.
We at the Chavez Law Firm know this and we are prepared for this type of situation. If you’re in this type of situation or a loved one is in this type of situation, please give us a call. We’re happy to help and get you all the compensation that you and your family deserve.
