Choosing a Car Accident Attorney
If you are searching for a car accident lawyer in Texas, that sadly means that you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic injury or maybe even a wrongful death. One of the most common questions that people in your situation have is, “How do I choose the best car accident lawyer for my particular situation?”
Consider this: If you need someone to write you a will, you would hire a lawyer that writes wills for a living. If you have been injured in a car accident, you should hire a Texas personal injury trial lawyer. The decision to hire an attorney is one of the most important decisions you will make. We suggest that you interview at least two lawyers and ask the following questions:
1. “Are you board-certified in personal injury trial law here in Texas?”
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 entire case?”
If you choose to contact us for a free consultation, we’ll be happy to answer those and any other questions that you may have.
Car Accident Case Timeline
We spoke with a young lady recently who had been involved in a car crash. She’s a student with a busy life, and she wanted to know how long it was going to take to resolve her case. As we were talking, we told her it really depended on her. It depends on how quickly injuries heal, for one. A doctor is going to come up with a treatment plan specifically for you, designed to get you to maximum medical improvement. Maximum medical improvement is simply when the doctor can provide no more treatment or no more benefit through injections or surgery.
Once we have found out what your maximum medical improvement is, we’ll have an idea of what your lost wages are. We’ll have an idea of what your other damages might be, including pain and suffering, mental anguish or physical impairment. Once we have your damages together, we will be able to make a settlement demand on the insurance company.
If the insurance company decides to do the right thing and fairly and adequately compensate you for your injuries, then your case will resolve favorably. A lot of times, however, the insurance companies like to lowball and make you fight for it. This can take a little bit longer. That’s why it’s important to hire a personal injury trial lawyer who understands how this work and who is going to work from day one to make sure that your case is in the best position possible.
We’re always going to work to get it resolved as quickly as possible. That’s always our goal. Sometimes, it takes a little bit longer based on what the insurance company decides to do. A personal injury attorney will not be afraid to go into the courtroom in front of a jury and hold that insurance company accountable for your damages.
We invite you to give us a call today. We can talk about your case and talk to you more about how to get your personal injury case resolved.
Car Accident Case Value
We recently spoke with a client who wanted to know, “How do I know the value of my car crash case? What is it worth?” We explained to her that every case is different; everybody has a unique situation. A lot of the value of a case is based on your injuries. How bad are you injuries? What are your injuries? How bad have your injuries impacted your daily life?
There are a couple different areas of damages that we want to look at. The first is your medical expenses. How much have you incurred in medical bills as a result of this crash? Another thing we’re going to look at is lost wages. Have you missed time from work? Do you have any lost wages? There’s also a category of non-economic damages. Non-economic damages you might know include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and physical impairment.
After you’ve reached maximum medical improvement with your doctor, we want to look at all of your damages from all of those different categories. That’s when we’ll begin to understand the value of your particular case. What’s really important is that you get with a personal injury trial attorney who understands those different damages, how to evaluate those different damages, and who isn’t afraid to go up against the insurance company to make sure that you get what’s fair and reasonable.
If you have any questions about what the value of your case is, we invite you to give us a call. Legal consultations here at the firm are always free, so feel free to give us a call. We look forward to talking to you.
