Dallas-Fort Worth Accident and Injury Attorneys

What should you know about personal injury cases and injury accidents?

  1. Every case has time limits. So, the faster you act the more likely you are to receive compensation faster.
  2. The sooner you find an experienced Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorney the stronger your case will likely be.
  3. Leaked information from insurance companies has shown that clients who are represented by personal injury attorneys obtain settlements that are multiples (3x or greater) higher in value than those who have no legal representation. We sometimes get settlements 12X to 15X times higher than what our clients were able to get as offers.
  4. If you are injured, we can help you find medical care, even if you don’t have health insurance. Don’t wait to get medical care, or you will weaken your case considerably and possibly lose access to compensation.
  5. Insurance companies are not on your side, no matter what they tell you. Insurance adjusters have one objective: profit. And the more they pay out to you, the less they profit. So, you are better off letting a lawyer handle your personal injury claim.
  6. Do not speak to anyone but the police, until you have had a lawyer review your case. What you say to insurance companies and other parties that may seek to gather information from you can later be used to reduce or deny your claim in many cases. You are not obligated to speak to anyone about your accident but the police, until you have a better idea what the direction of you case will be.
  7. If you are seeking direction for an accident injury case give us a call. We charge you nothing to review your case. And we can help you take the right steps forward.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“This law office is the only firm that I would ever suggest to friends and family. I was significantly hurt in a motorcycle accident. Tim and his staff went to bat for us and took care of everything. They helped us deal with our insurance company and get us benefits I didn’t even know we had. They then fought for us in all of the other proceedings and won a wonderful settlement.”

Isaac Nelson Dallas Personal Injury Client Testimonial

“I knew I was going to be up against a big insurance company, and I just didn’t want to deal with it. They were very friendly, very helpful, and really just tried to make it as easy as possible for me.”

Lauren Breeden Dallas Personal Injury Client Testimonial

“We were severely injured … They have their people that they work with on a daily basis with their clients that they recommend. That made the process a lot easier. So we didn’t have to go out and interview 10 doctors to see who could take care of us.”

Scott & Michelle Tucker Dallas Personal Injury Client Testimonial

“When you would call him, you’re not just talking about business, you’re talking about God and how’s your family going to survive and all the things that don’t go in the commercials. … I know he had stuff to do at some of those times when I’d talk to him for 30 minutes or an hour. But he made time.”

Gary Reddin Dallas Personal Injury Client Testimonial

“I was treated very fair, very respectful. If I had to refer them to someone else, I definitely would.”

Charleston Boyd Dallas Personal Injury Client Testimonial

“I like them a lot. They are like an extended family.”

How can you find the best personal injury attorney in Dallas-Fort Worth Texas?

Determining an attorney’s level of experience and competence will help you in finding the best law firm to hire. The number years a firm has been in business is important. The firm’s track record should also be explored. You will want to ask several questions, such as:

How much experience does the attorney have in the courtroom? A qualified attorney will have not only taken several cases to court, but they will also have likely won significant settlements for these cases and others.

Has the attorney taken cases like yours to court? Court experience needs to be relevant, and personal injury attorneys may have experience in the courtroom, but this experience needs to be specific to your type of case. For instance, a case involving a commercial motor vehicle such as an 18-wheeler is a considerably different kind of case than one only involving passenger vehicles such as cars, pickups, or SUVs. The dynamics of certain case types require a high level of specialization.

What is the attorney’s present case load? Does the injury law firm currently have cases such as yours that are in court or in the pre-trial phase?

Other questions you may want to ask a personal injury lawyer:

Does the attorney have ratings, reviews and testimonials? Can the injury attorney provide references?

Can the attorney handle the cost of taking a complex trial before a judge and jury? Many cases require a considerable amount of funds to cover the costs or court fees, expert witnesses and other expenses that may be involved.

Has the attorney handled personal injury cases in Texas? An expert injury attorney will have a strategy for selecting the best of the available courts in which to litigate your case in Texas or the state you are in.

Does the attorney have information to relate regarding how they have handled a case such as yours? Experience needs to be evidenced by specific details.

These are some questions you may want to ask of yourself, once you have interviewed an injury attorney:

Are you able to establish a level of confidence in the attorney that you are comfortable with? Are there unanswered questions? Do you feel like you will have a good working relationship with the personal injury lawyer you are considering? Remember that this firm and the attorneys and office staff you work with will gain access to many very personal details about your accident and your life. Are you comfortable enough with the people you are considering for your injury case to share very intimate details of your life? If not, you should consider finding another law firm.

How do I get the most money for my case?

Evidence is essential in order to get top dollar for an injury case. This means there must be proof of who was at fault for the accident and that the accident caused your injuries. Police reports and witness statements go a long way to proving fault while detailed medical records from qualified doctors (many times orthopedics or neurologists) are used to show the cause and extent of the injuries. We work to build a solid case in order to seek maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries.

Is there a benefit to being represented by a lawyer?

Most of the time in an accident injury situation, an insurance company will be your opponent. Insurance companies are very skilled at denying or minimizing injury claims – that’s how they make money. Insurance adjusters regularly deny claims that should be paid, or they offer only a small percent of the fair value of a claim. Our goal is the opposite. We develop a settlement package presenting our client’s case that often can result in our client receiving 10 to 20 times more compensation than what the insurance adjusters might offer for their injury claim. In such case, even after legal fees, our clients can net more money in their pocket. Even better, we work on a completely contingent basis, so there are no legal fees unless we are successful in collecting compensation for our clients.

Should I talk to the insurance company?

Do not talk to anyone at the insurance company. This includes their insurance adjusters and defense lawyers. Insurance companies frequently record phone conversations during which they ask leading questions designed to produce testimony that they can use to deny your case. If we are your lawyers, we will do the talking for you so you do not fall into the insurance company traps that are designed to decrease the value of your claim.

How do I pay my medical bills?

Medical bills can be paid through various manners such as health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Personal Injury Protection insurance funds, deferred billing, and letters of protection. Depending on all of the facts surrounding your case and the insurance companies involved, we produce a strategy that we believe will best benefit our clients. Also, even if our clients do not have access to health insurance, we can assist them with getting medical care that is paid at the end of the case – which means no upfront medical bills.

How do I collect my lost income?

Even if an injured person is not able to work after an accident, insurance company tactics are to disagree and assert that the person could work so the insurance companies can deny the claim for lost income. It is important to have a qualified doctor’s medical documentation that proves the inability to work for a certain period of time due to an injury. We work with our clients’ doctors and employers to prove the medical reason for not working and the calculation of lost earnings. This frequently results in a fight with the insurance company, but we believe that with solid evidence we are ultimately able to win the fight and collect our clients’ lost income.
