Why Your Driving Record May Affect Your Texas Car Accident and Injury Claim

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston car accident and injury attorneys know that the insurance companies review many factors after a Texas vehicle collision.

One of those factors includes evaluating each person’s driving record.

Your Texas driver record includes all violations — including moving and non-moving — accidents, DUI convictions, license suspensions, license points, and your current license status record.

The question becomes, how does your driving record impact your personal injury claim after a crash occurs? We have answers.

 Car Accident and Injury Claim

How Can My Driving Record Impact My Car Accident & Injury Claim in Texas?

Your driving record indicates your past driving behavior. If your driving record shows previous traffic violations, like speeding tickets, reckless driving citations, or accidents where you were at fault, it may be used to argue that you were negligent in the current accident.

Even if the insurance company cannot prove your past driving record makes you liable for the crash, Texas follows a modified comparative fault rule, meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced to your degree of fault.

If your driving record indicates a history of negligent driving behavior, it may be used to argue that you contributed to the accident, thus reducing your potential compensation.

In the context of a car accident claim, insurance companies may leverage your driving record to justify offering you a lower settlement amount.

Overall, your driving record is an essential factor influencing the outcome of your car accident and injury claim in Texas. Knowing how your driving history may impact your case is crucial, and seeking guidance from a knowledgeable attorney to navigate the legal process effectively is vital. We can help.
