There’s No Substitute for Experience When Winning Compensation as an Injured Passenger in s Car Wreck
There are many personal injury attorneys in Texas. How can you decide which one is right to handle your case? Our respected attorneys suggest that if it’s at all possible, that you interview at least two or three lawyers before choosing the one that you want to hire. If a family member is fresh out of emergency surgery, it is not unusual for family members to begin this task quickly. Hiring an experienced attorney as soon as possible is strongly suggested, if for no other reason than the investigation needs to start ASAP.
Ask each one about his track record for settling and litigating accident cases. Find out what each attorney thinks the strengths and weaknesses of your case are. See if the lawyers can provide you with the names of former clients whose cases were similar to yours. Ask if you can contact them. Then reach out to them and ask the same question you asked your prospective legal advocate and counsel. If you do all of these things to your satisfaction, then you’ll be able to hire an attorney whose experience in handling cases as yours gives you confidence, as well as peace of mind that this is the lawyer you can trust with your case.
When accident victims retain the attorneys with our Law Firms, they receive the following services:
We ensure that our clients receive the medical care they require to recover from their injuries.
We conduct an in-depth investigation to determine the cause of the accident. The research includes asset checks of all defendants to make sure they can pay damages.
Our investigators gather evidence, including witness statements, photographs, forensic tests, and police reports that we will need to prove your claims.
We respond to and send discovery requests (and shield you from opposition insurance adjusters).
We manage ALL the paperwork and phone calls related to your claims. We file all motions (and answer all motions made by the defense) quickly and effectively.
We use our stellar reputation to pressure the defendants into a settlement.
We act as mediators for our clients’ cases.
When necessary, we file lawsuits and argue them aggressively to prove your damage case in front of a jury.
We fairly and accurately calculate all damages resulting from the car accident and demand fair compensation for you.
A non-attorney doesn’t have the necessary knowledge to effectively investigate an accident scene, negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies, or successfully represent him or herself in court. Litigating accident-related injury cases is extremely complex. Attorneys who don’t have a deep background in personal injury don’t have any better chance than you of winning reasonable compensation. So why would you even entertain such a foolish idea, especially when tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars are on the table?
If you’re thinking about taking up the offer of a relative or friend who is a lawyer to represent you, you might want to reconsider that plan seriously. He or she might be looking out for your best interests to fight hard for your rights in an accident case. Unless this person is an experienced personal injury lawyer with experience beating these opponents and their insurance companies, your attorney’s good intentions might result in your side taking a knife to a gunfight.
Your friend/relative lawyer will likely have a difficult time emotionally detaching him or herself from issues surrounding your case because of that close association. Personal injury law is quite intense and extremely contentious. Your attorney must be pragmatic, focus solely on the facts of a case, and be very calm to succeed for you. What happens if that friend or relative attorney doesn’t win the case, or accepts a less-than-fair settlement because he knows how badly you need the money now? How will you feel about your friend or relative then? You will be very wise to keep your family members and friends out of your legal business when deciding who will represent your injury liability lawsuit most effectively.
Our Law Firm is Here to Help you Win Rightful Compensation and Help you Recover from your Passenger Injuries
One thing that is important if you are a passenger in an auto wreck is that your interests are far down the line as far as either driver’s insurance company is concerned. If there’s a minimum coverage agency involved, or if your insurance company balks at honoring the PIP policy, it sold you in good-faith, who fights for you? Your PIP protection only kicks-in after you have exhausted all compensation from all other insurance policies. And as we said, the other drivers (and their insurers) are worried about themselves first and you last. Isn’t it a smart move to have an experienced attorney who knows the complicated steps to this dance looking out for you and your family during your time of painful and expensive need?
We have been litigating and resolving all types of vehicle accidents and wrongful death cases, both locally and all over Texas, for over 30 years. We have successfully negotiated countless settlements and argued many cases against every major insurance provider in the nation. We have a history of success and won numerous fair settlements for our clients as well as on behalf of their deceased loved ones after being unwilling parties in a car wreck just because they ended up in someone’s passenger seat. Insurance companies know every trick in the book to deny you your claim. But they also know our track record and don’t want to see us in court. As a result, they often offer our clients attractive settlements without the stress and uncertainty of experiencing a jury trial.
The accident attorneys with our Law Firm do whatever is necessary to help you obtain justice and fair restitution for injured auto accident passengers who survive a car wreck. We also represent the surviving family members of a loved one that has suddenly and violently been taken from them.
