Car Accident Lawyer Highlights Recent Case To Educate Community

Austin, Texas based Gibbs & Crivelli is sharing the particulars of a recent car accident case the attorneys worked on in a bid to educate the community about their rights. The law firm is built upon the premise that every person, regardless of income, is entitled to justice and a fair fight, and the team of lawyers at Gibbs & Crivelli fight hard to ensure that their personal injury clients get a just outcome to their case.

Drew Gibbs from Gibbs & Crivelli says, “A car accident can be one of the worst things that can happen to you. At the very least, it will cause you injuries and frustration, and in worst case scenarios, things can be much more dire. In such trying times, when you are juggling with a lot of pressing matters — like ballooning medical bills, lost wages from missed work, property and motor vehicle damage, and physical and emotional trauma, dealing with a motor vehicle collision can feel like a full-time job and more. It can be very helpful to have an experienced car accident lawyer by your side.”

Recently, the law firm worked with a young couple who tragically lost their unborn child as a result of a violent T-bone collision caused by a negligent driver running a red light. Upon investigation, it became clear the driver’s employer had negligently entrusted him with a work vehicle when the police arrested him at the scene of the accident on a warrant for a previous hit and run collision. Gibbs & Crivelli explains that while no amount of money can replace what their clients lost that day, Slingshot Law warrior Linda Leibfarth was able to settle their case for the maximum available compensation under the applicable insurance policies: $6,000,000.00.

Gibbs says, “In such a tragic case like this, the money is no equivalent for the loss, but it is rightfully owed to the victims, and it is vital that they are awarded what they are owed so that they can begin to put their lives back together. Our team at Gibbs & Crivelli, Slingshot Law is very grateful to have been able to do our part to help our clients.”

The firm explains that car accident injury claims can vary greatly in scope. They can be relatively minor injuries (like bruises and small injuries) or they can be very serious and complex (when death or serious injury is involved). In some cases, it may not be clear whether the wronged party has a case that will result in compensation, and in such cases, contacting an experienced Austin car accident attorney can be of great help.

There are a number of key factors that lawyers review to help determine whether their client has a case and what their next steps may be. Typically, if one party has been injured because another was careless, it is very likely that the first party may have a personal injury claim, but that is not always easy to determine, especially if too much time has elapsed since the auto accident. This is why it is vital to get in touch with a lawyer immediately and record every detail about the accident and the injuries sustained.

Gribbs & Crivelli’s expertise in car accident cases and other personal injury law cases have earned the law firm great acclaim from their clients. Cristina Vera says in a review, “I'm beyond pleased with the outcome and services. These guys are top-notch in my opinion. They sincerely care and are truly genuine. If I ever need another lawyer, I will not hesitate to hire them. Thank you, Scott and Linda. You have been awesome since day one.”

Jared Wiggins writes in his review, “Gibbs and Crivelli did a great job representing me after an accident. They kept me up to date with the ongoing changes in my case, lined up excellent medical care for me after the accident and got a very good settlement from insurance. Hard working and very skilled attorneys, would highly recommend them.”
