How much will your medical bills probably cost after a Texas car accident?
A lot! Total costs for your medical bills could cost as much as $10,000 and possibly more. If surgery is required, expenses can exceed $50,000, even $100,000. And a catastrophic injury can cost over $1 million.
So as you can see, this is a very important topic. The problem is that you will not know in advance which doctors you need to see, what they charge, and who is paying them.
That is the reason that the statute of limitations in Texas is two years from the date of the collision. Lawmakers knew how long this process can take and gave injured Texans two years to treat and then negotiate their insurance claim or file a lawsuit.

That is why the company often denies fault and minimizes damages. It does not want to pay much, if any, money until an aggressive personal injury lawyer makes them.
How much should the insurance company pay if it assumes liability and decides to make an offer? You can’t get an accurate answer from the internet, a friend, or a lawyer commercial on TV.
