Tim Tate is a Dallas personal injury attorney who represents victims of auto accidents, work-related accidents, defective products, pedestrian accidents, 18-wheeler wrecks and several other types of injury cases across the state of Texas. Tate’s mission as an injury lawyer is to always get top dollar for his clients so they return to their lives with the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
Nearly two decades ago, Tate saw the huge disparity in power between large insurance companies that are responsible for the financial payment of injury cases and the everyday person who was at the mercy of large insurance companies. “Insurance companies have massive amounts of power, and they do whatever they can to avoid paying fair value to an individual,” Tate says. “They throw up so many roadblocks that many people just give in and are only paid a small fraction of the true value of their claim. This is how the big insurance claims process is designed because it results in hundreds of millions of dollars in profits to insurance companies.”
As a personal injury attorney, Tate levels the playing field where individuals have the ability to assert their rights and their claims for just compensation. “When you see the type of abuse insurance companies deal out to people by refusing to pay legitimate claims, and when you see them offer pennies on the dollar, it gives me a lot of satisfaction to see our clients paid fairly,” Tate says. “In many cases, we can get insurance companies to pay 10 to 50 times the amount an individual would receive on his own.”
Attorney Tim Tate is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, and the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America, all of which advance the rights of injured victims against insurance companies. He is also a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum where he is lauded as one of the “Top Trial Lawyers in America ™”.
