Negligence And Personal Injury In Texas
Have you suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, or the failure to behave with an ordinary level of care as would be exercised by others in the same situation? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Accidents happen, but sometimes they could have been avoided. You shouldn’t be held financially responsible for a preventable injury.
An experienced personal injury lawyer should evaluate your case. If you qualify for a personal injury claim, an injury accident lawyer will:
- educate you on your options,
- guide you through the process of making a claim,
- advocate for you with the insurance company, and
- fight to get you complete compensation for injuries.
Most claims resolve with a personal injury settlement—meaning you never even go to trial to obtain a fair settlement payout. Your qualified injury accident lawyer will gather all the required documentation and deliver it to the insurance company in a demand letter—a valuation of your injury case with supporting evidence.
Generally, once you send the demand letter, negotiations begin. An experienced personal injury settlement attorney will advocate on your behalf to obtain the best deal from the insurance company. With a fair offer made, you walk away with money to cover the cost of your injuries, including:
- medical expenses,
- loss of wages,
- pain and suffering, and
- attorney fees.
In some cases, a fair settlement cannot be reached. In those cases, you have two choices: accept the insurance company’s highest offer or file a personal injury lawsuit. Your personal injury lawyer will provide guidance on possible trial outcomes, but you have the final say on which path is best for you.
