1) Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney
If you are searching for a Texas personal injury attorney, unfortunately, that means that you or a loved one has suffered from a traumatic injury or maybe even a wrongful death. One of the most common questions that comes up from people in your situation is, “How do I choose the best personal injury attorney for my particular situation?”
The decision to choose an attorney is one of the most important decisions you’ll make on your case. If you have been injured, you should hire a Texas personal injury trial lawyer to help you with your particular situation. By way of example, if you need someone to write you a will, you should hire a lawyer who writes wills for a living. What we would suggest is that you interview at least two personal injury lawyers. Compare this to when you need surgery— you are going to get a second opinion. This applies equally when you hire an attorney.
When you interview the attorneys, ask the following questions:
1. “Are you board-certified in Texas, in personal injury trial law?”
2. “What actual experience do you have trying cases to a jury here in Texas?”
3. “Will you give me your personal cell phone number so we can stay in communication throughout the case?”
If you choose to contact us for free legal consultation, we will be happy to answer these questions and any other questions that you may have.
2) Personal Injury Case Timeline
We spoke with a client recently whose husband had been involved in a pretty bad car crash. He was in the hospital and hadn’t been able to work. One of her major concerns was how long the case would take. She wants her life to get back to normal, like before this car crash happened. This was a major concern for her. So, how long is my personal injury case going to take to resolve? Everybody’s case is unique to them.
The way we figure that out is through really finding out when you reach maximum medical improvement. Maximum medical improvement is when you and your doctor come to the agreement that you would no longer benefit from any additional medical treatment. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, we will also know what your lost wages are, if any, and we’ll be able to calculate other damages that you’re entitled to, such as pain and suffering.
Once we have an idea of what your total damages are, we will be able to send a demand to the insurance company and give them an opportunity to make it right. In the event the insurance company decides not to take responsibility and make an offer, what you need to look for is a personal injury attorney who is also a trial attorney. That’s what we do here. We’re trial attorneys. From day one, we’re going to make sure that your case is set up and ready to go to trial, if the insurance company decides not to do the right thing.
If you have any questions, we invite you to give us a call and find out more about how we can help you out. As always, legal consultations are always free.
3) Minimum Amount of Medical Bills
We were speaking with a potential new client the other day. After her car crash, she went to the doctor and had some medical bills piling up. One of her concerns was, “Is there a maximum or minimum amount of medical bills that I have to have, in order to have a personal injury claim here in Texas?”
If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, through someone else’s carelessness, there’s no minimum amount of medical bills required to have an injury claim. With medical bills, however, it’s important to allow the doctor to document your injuries so there will be some medical bills. Every case is different. Some people have more significant injuries, some people have less significant injuries.
What’s really important is that you find a personal injury trial lawyer— someone who is skilled in putting together these types of cases, whether your injuries are major or minor. That helps guarantee you get the compensation your deserve from the insurance company. If the insurance company decides not to do the right thing because you might have fewer medical bills than someone else, that’s where we step in. We want to take the insurance company all the way to a jury trial and force them to do the right thing.
