What Can an Accident Attorney do for You?
The accident lawyers with Our Law Office want to help you through this incredibly trying time you are experiencing and help you recover by helping you obtain equitable compensation. There are several ways we can make the legal process much easier for you, and help you focus your energy on recovering from your injury. These include:
Taking all of the legal work off of your plate.
Shielding you from the harassing and intimidating tactics used by insurance company operatives.
Filing your claim, or taking over negotiations if you have already filed.
Launching a thorough investigation by collecting any available video or photographic evidence, finding witnesses and interviewing them, sequestering and inspecting all vehicles involved in the accident, measuring the skid marks to the impact point, reviewing police reports in painstaking detail, and cataloging all evidence properly so it will be admissible in court.
Helping you find medical help if you are uninsured and otherwise cannot afford it.
Prepare demand packets.
Negotiating a fair settlement so you can avoid the stress and uncertainty of a trial.
Devising a trial strategy whether or not the case goes to court. The more convincing your case, the larger the settlement you can obtain without having to go through a trial.
For two decades, our skilled and passionate attorneys have been dedicated to doing everything they can to protect the rights of our clients and secure the restitution they have coming to them. Just as we have for so many other Texans, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Why You Should NEVER Act as Your Own Attorney
It is legal, of course, for an injury victim to act as his or her own lawyer in litigating a personal injury case. It’s never a good idea. You can read as many law books as you like, and conduct as many Google searches as you want. The bottom line is that none of that can even come close to substituting for real-world courtroom experience. If you attempt to act as your own lawyer, you will fail. It’s as simple as that. You will leave that courtroom with nothing, and face a lifetime of financial misery because you will be on the hook for all your medical expenses, property repair bills, and all the other expenses you have accumulated. It could be the worst mistake you make for the rest of your life.
Successful lawyers spend years honing their craft, learning courtroom procedures, and devising effective trial strategies. A successful lawyer not only knows the law but how to apply it. He or she knows how to investigate accidents, depose witnesses and follow the aforementioned courtroom procedure to the letter. Plus, insurance companies typically will only enter into good-faith negotiations with “real” lawyers, not legal laypeople trying to act as their own attorneys. A seasoned accident lawyer is your best chance of negotiating a fair settlement from an insurance carrier. Insurers’fear hits their bottom line, and in our 20 years of practice, the attorneys with our Law Office have delivered plenty of those hits by defeating nearly every major insurance provider in the nation. Because of our track record in delivering millions and millions of dollars in compensation for thousands of our clients, insurers will often make a fair settlement offer in order to avoid losing substantially more money by taking us on in a trial. If they choose not to make that kind of fair offer, however, we will be more than happy to fight for your rights in a court of law. Don’t risk short-changing yourself, or risk a lifetime of financial misery, by acting as your own attorney. Let us put our knowledge, reputation, and experience to work for your benefit.
