Dallas is a thriving city of more than a million people with many distinct and vibrant neighborhoods. People take part in all kinds of activities every day of the week. Accidents happen.
But when accidents happen because someone was negligent, that person needs to be held responsible. An accident can result in cuts, bruises, concussions, broken bones, spinal cord injuries or a traumatic brain injury. Whether your injury was minor or more serious, it affected your life, and you deserve compensation.
How can a personal injury lawyer help with my case?
Recovering financial compensation after being hurt in a personal injury accident can be challenging. Negligent parties may not accept responsibility for what happened or admit they did anything wrong. That puts you in the position of having to prove they were responsible for causing the accident that left you hurt.
Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible – or even nothing at all. They may question the extent of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. They may even blame you for what happened. The insurance company may offer you a settlement, but it will be a lowball offer that doesn’t cover all of the damages you suffered.
An experienced attorney can investigate what happened and build a strong case that proves the negligence of another caused the accident that left you hurt. An attorney can also fight back against insurance company attempts to minimize your claim and fight for compensation through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict.
When should I see a doctor?
If you are involved in a personal injury accident, you should always seek medical attention right away. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may have to go to the emergency room, an urgent care facility, or make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Even the smallest bump on the head may seem like something that will go away on its own, but could potentially indicate fatal swelling, internal bleeding, or other conditions. A doctor can not only treat you, but also document your injuries. This will bolster your claim; it’s hard to argue against a medical record that establishes you were hurt in the situation you reported.
Will my medical bills be covered?
This is a common worry among personal injury victims. The answer varies depending on the accident’s circumstances. An at-fault party’s insurance company may be who you turn to in order to cover the cost of your medical care. But they may dispute the severity of your injury or the treatment needed. In some cases, you may need to file suit against a negligent party to get the insurance company to pay damages. If you’ve been injured in an accident, we can go over your options in a free case evaluation.
How much will a personal injury attorney cost?
Many people who have been hurt in an accident want to take legal action to recover compensation but are concerned they can’t afford an experienced lawyer. The good news is that most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means it costs you nothing – there are no fees or out-of-pocket expenses. Your lawyer doesn’t get paid until you have recovered financial compensation for your injury.
Should I accept a settlement?
An insurance company may make you an initial settlement offer. But it may not cover the true amount of damages from your accident. For example, your injury may require future medical treatment or therapy. Insurance companies will sometimes try to settle a case as soon as possible and move on. They just want to settle your claim quickly and cheaply. Always consult your attorney when offered a lump sum settlement. You were a victim of carelessness and disregard for personal safety, and shouldn’t be cast off as another closed case. An experienced attorney can help you fight to get the compensation you deserve.
