Car Accident Lawyers in Texas

After being injured in a car accident, it’s important to file a personal injury claim with the insurance company. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests; anything you tell to an insurance company claims adjuster can be used against you. 

For instance, State Farm claims and USAA claims are only working towards what will be in favor of State Farm and USAA. 

The best way to make sure you are treated fairly after your car accident is to hire a lawyer who knows the law and who is willing to fight to make sure that you are treated fairly.  At Sutliff & Stout that is exactly what we do.
