        "I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"

        I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it is be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.

        What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their accident claim?


        We spoke with a young lady recently in Katy, Texas who had been involved in a car crash. She was a young, college-aged student, and this was the first time she’d been involved in a car crash. As we spoke, one of her concerns was that she might make a mistake on her case. She asked what the common mistakes are that people make when they’ve been involved in a car crash. The first thing we told her is the biggest mistake we see people make with their car crash claim is they don’t go see a doctor.

        A lot of times after a car crash, people have a lot of adrenaline pumping through their body. They might not feel or realize how bad they’re hurt, and they think, “Oh, I’ll be okay tomorrow.” When they wake up and get out of bed the next day, however, their neck might hurt or their back might be a little sore. It might be a little difficult getting ready for work in the morning, but they let it go on and on without seeing a doctor. That’s one of the biggest mistakes that we see. People think that they’ll just heal automatically without any kind of doctor assistance.

        The second biggest mistake that we see is that people don’t follow through with the doctor’s treatment plan. The doctor will sit with you and develop a treatment plan specifically for you so that your injuries heal to what’s called maximum medical improvement. If you don’t follow the doctor’s orders, the insurance company is going to use that against you and say, “Look, she wasn’t even hurt. She didn’t follow the doctor’s orders.” That can be a powerful argument in front of a jury, and that’s why it’s important that you hire a personal injury trial attorney.

        Here at our firm, we are personal injury trial attorneys. That means that we focus on people who have been involved in car crashes. It’s what we do every day. We understand the evidence that’s needed and the mistakes to avoid to ensure that the insurance company compensates you fairly and reasonably for the injuries that have been thrust into your life.

        We definitely invite you to give us a call today, here at the firm, and find out more about how we can help you out. As always, legal consultations are free, so give us a call.
