Why Should You Hire a Real Trial Lawyer?

If you have been hurt because someone else was negligent, whether, through a car accident, motorcycle crash, or other activity, seeking help from our Atascocita, TX personal injury lawyers is an excellent first step.

Personal Injury

Do You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Atascocita?

If your injuries were severe, and there is enough insurance coverage, your case may have significant settlement value. Seeking compensation after an accident is your right as a Texan. Compensation in Texas can include your medical expenses, pain-and-suffering, emotional distress, disability or disfigurement, and the money you lost from not working while you recover.

Commonly, insurance companies may try to infer that you need not retain an attorney for your injuries. Sometimes, the insurer will simply send you a check and a release and hope you sign it. Unfortunately, if you agree to a settlement or sign a formal release, you have waived your right to pursue more compensation.

Most insurance companies offer lowball numbers to the people not represented hoping they will accept the offer. Another insurance tactic is to “accept responsibility” but never intend to pay fair compensation for the liability.

These are only some of the reasons you need to hire a reputable lawyer.

  • Obtain your medical records – we will study your medical records and consult with your doctors to determine the nature and extent of your injuries and how they relate to the accident. We will also learn how your injuries impact your life.
  • Seek maximum compensation for you – we will deal with the insurance company to fight for maximum compensation for your injuries. Our law firm has obtained maximum compensation for over three decades for thousands of Texas families.

Houston Car Accident Claims:From Start To Finish

An Interactive Guide

CRUNCH!

You hear metal crumpling. Someone just hit your car. Maybe they ran a red light or lost control of their vehicle. Maybe you were rear-ended by a teenage driver on her cellphone.

Either way, you’re angry and frustrated. You have things to do. Places to go. But now, you're standing beside your damaged vehicle waiting for the police to arrive. You start to feel some neck pain.

All that to say: A single, unexpected moment changed everything.

A car accident can strike at any time. Whether you are on your way to work or headed to the store, it doesn’t matter. It’s moments like these that cause the government to require everyone to buy insurance.

A Guide For All Car Accident Victims

In this guide, you will learn:

  • How To Handle Yourself When Disaster Strikes
  • How To Ensure The At-Fault Insurance Company Covers Any Property Damage And Injury Expenses.
  • What Injury Lawyers Do And How They Can Help You.
Go To Step 1

Get To Safety

Prevent Further Damage & Injury

If you find yourself in the middle of the intersection or on the freeway, you first priority is to move all persons (and vehicles if possible) out of the way of oncoming oncoming traffic.

Survey The Damage

Call The Police + Gather Evidence

After getting to safety, you should immediately dial 911. Make sure to alert the dispatcher if there are any serious injuries.

As you wait for help to arrive, you have 3 goals:

  • Identify Extent of Injuries
  • Identify Witnesses
  • Identify Vehicle Damage

Pro Tip: Use your cell phone to record a statement from the other driver, as well as to store contact information for the other driver and any witnesses.

Get Medical Help

Your Health Is #1

After emergency help arrives, it is important to seek medical treatment. Even if you don’t feel injured, it is important to get checked out for any internal injuries.

Be sure to go in for any follow-up checkups or procedures.


Pro Tip: If you wait before seeking medical treatment, the at-fault insurance company may argue that your injury wasn’t serious and that you don’t deserve compensation for medical expenses.

Common Internal
Injuries

  • Whiplash
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Broken Ribs
  • Punctured Lungs

Hire An Injury Lawyer

Save Time. Get Compensated.

Hiring an injury lawyer after a serious accident is one of the best things you can do. Injury lawyers take care of all communication and negotiation with insurance companies. This frees up your time to focus on recovering.

At our law firm, we offer free initial consultations to all Houston residents. Just fill out our contact form — or give us a call to schedule a convenient time for you. We’ll listen to your story and offer our advice.


Pro Tip: Never accept a settlement without consulting a lawyer, especially if injury is involved. Once you accept a settlement, you can never recover anything further in the future.

Time Is Of The Essence

 

In most cases, you have 2 years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. This is called the Statute of Limitations.

Certain exceptions can extend and/or shorten a limitations period.

If the victim is a minor, the limitations may be extended until they are 18 years old.

If you are in an accident caused by a governmental entity in Texas, the statute of limitations may be much shorter — ranging from a few months to six months.

5

File Your Claim

Notify Your Insurance Company

It is important to notify your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible.

Many insurance companies allow you to file your claim online. Otherwise, call the number listed on your insurance card.

Be sure to keep track of all adjuster names and contact information.

Pro Tip: There may be multiple active insurance policies that can cover you. For example, if the other driver didn’t have insurance, your own Uninsured Motorist coverage could kick in. An experienced attorney can help identify these policies & maximize your recovery.
