The Stowers Demand in Texas Personal Injury Cases

If you have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, premise liability accident, construction accident, work related accident, or any other personal injury accident involving the negligence of another party, an effective and powerful tool to attempt to settle your claim with the negligent party's insurance carrier is called the "Stowers demand."  

The Texas Supreme Court in G.A. Stowers Furniture Co. vs. American Indemnity Co. held that an insured has a potential cause of action against its liability insurance carrier for failing to settle a liability claim when a demand is made within policy limits, liability is reasonably clear, and a reasonable insurance carrier should have settled the claim.

Texas DPS Trooper Injured in Vehicle Crash in McKinney, Texas

A two-vehicle accident in McKinney, Texas sent a Texas DPS trooper to the hospital at Medical Center of Plano, Friday night, February 8, 2013.

The DPS trooper was attempting to pull over a motorist who committed a traffic violation on U.S. 380 near County Road 330, with his emergency lights on, when a driver of a pickup truck pulled out of a driveway in front of the trooper, causing the crash.  The driver of the pickup thought he had enough time to cross in front of the trooper.  The trooper could not avoid impact and crashed into the side of the pickup truck.

The driver of the pickup truck was able to walk away from the crash, but it took 30 minutes for emergency workers to get the trooper out of his vehicle. 

The lesson here is to always slow down and yield to police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, and any other emergency vehicles.

Goals and Advantages of Mediation in Texas

Whether your legal dispute involves a personal injury case, wrongful death case, insurance claim, family law, divorce, child custody, or child support case, you should strongy consider mediation to attempt to resolve your legal dispute through settlement.  If you have an attorney representing you, mediation will probably be discussed during the pendency of your case.  You should take a lead role in assisting your attorney during the process of selecting a qualified and experienced mediator in order to optizime your chance of successfully resolving your legal dispute.   

 Definition of Mediation

Mediation is an effective alternative dispute resolution method by which parties to a legal dispute agree to hire a neutral third party to serve as the mediator.  The mediator's role is to learn the facts of the case and arguments of all parties, to promote communication between the parties, and to facilitate the parties with respect to formulating a potential settlement of the legal dispute.  The mediator remains neutral and should not provide legal advice to the parties as an attorney would do.

With respect to almost every civil lawsuit filed in State Courts in Texas, Judges will order the attorneys and the parties to mediation prior to trial.  However, mediation is non-binding, meaning that you may choose to settle your case during mediation, or alternatively, you  may choose not to settle your case at mediation and proceed with your case in Court.  No one can force you to settle your case during mediation.
