After any serious accident, you will almost certainly have to deal with insurance companies. Doing so without a lawyer can be frustrating and costly – and more importantly, dangerous. The insurance company may try to take advantage of your lack of experience by minimizing the extent of your injuries and offering to settle for far less than your actual losses. The insurance company will have lawyers protecting its interests. You should too.  Having a knowledgeable personal injury attorney negotiating on your behalf can make all the difference.

We believe you should never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company or give a recorded statement to an insurance company representative without speaking with a lawyer first. The insurance company is out to protect its profits and this means doing all it can to deny or minimize your claim.

As studies have shown, those who are represented by lawyers generally recover a higher amount in compensation than those who try to deal with insurance companies on their own. Don’t make this mistake in your case.

At Tate Law Offices, we are proud to have delivered positive results for our clients in more than 3,000 cases, including in-pocket recoveries of:

$6.5 million in a truck and motorcycle accident case involving brain and bodily injuries
$3.7 million on behalf of a family that lost a loved one in a car accident
$2.2 million for a client who suffered burn injuries due to a product defect
$1.8 million for a client left with a severe spinal cord injury after a truck accident
$1.5 million for a client who sustained leg injuries in a pedestrian accident.

We handle cases of all sizes and the amount that can be recovered in a particular case depends on its specific circumstances, including the nature of the accident, the extent of injuries, the parties involved and available insurance coverage.

What to Expect When You Hire Our Law Firm to Handle Your Arlington Accident

At Tate Law Offices, our ultimate goal will be to ensure that the maximum amount of money goes into your pocket when your case is concluded. We know that you need those funds to pay for your medical care, replace your lost income and move beyond a difficult chapter in your life. Here’s our approach:

  • Thorough investigation —We examine the accident scene, find eyewitnesses and obtain sworn oral or written statements from them about what they saw or heard. We analyze your medical records. We often work with accident reconstruction experts to determine how your accident occurred and medical doctors to determine the way it has impacted your life.
  • Identify All Responsible Parties—We determine all parties who may be liable for your damages as well as all sources of compensation available to you. For instance, in a car accident case, the at-fault driver may be liable as well as the driver’s employer if he or she was working at the time of the crash. In order to maximize your financial recovery, we can turn to the driver’s liability insurance coverage and the employer’s insurance policy. In some case, Uninsured and Underinsured insurance may be available also.
  • Carefully prepare your case – We compile evidence to support each claim and develop the strongest possible presentation of that evidence. When the insurance company knows that you are prepared to go to trial if necessary, the insurer is more likely to make a settlement offer that fully compensates you for your losses – thus avoiding litigation.
  • Present a Settlement Demand – We prepare and submit a comprehensive settlement demand to each party involved in your case. Most of our cases at Tate Law Offices are settled through negotiation with one or more insurance companies before a lawsuit, or complaint, is filed. We negotiate aggressively, and throughout the process, we keep you informed of any settlement offers.
  • Take Your Case to Court – If the insurance company fails to make a reasonable settlement offer, our highly skilled trial lawyers will be prepared to seek justice in court. We will give you a straightforward assessment of the situation and seek permission to proceed with a lawsuit. We know how to present persuasive cases before judges and juries.
  • Resolve Any Liens on Your Recovery – If a hospital, Medicare, Medicaid, or workers’ compensation insurer has attached a lien to your recovery, we can work to resolve that lien as efficiently as possible. At the same time, we can take steps that are aimed at minimizing the amount that is paid to resolve those liens.

The majority of personal injury lawsuits are filed in the Texas state court system. Your case may be filed in state courts based in Tarrant County or – depending on where your accident occurred – a nearby county such as Dallas,  Parker, Denton or Wise counties. If a lawsuit is filed, Tate Law Offices will continue to work towards reaching a settlement with the other parties involved in your case.

What Compensation Can You Seek for Injuries from Your Arlington Accident?

The damages that may be sought in a personal injury lawsuit include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost past and future earnings
  • Past and Future physical impairment / disability
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of household services
  • Past and future pain and suffering.

If your case involves the wrongful death of a loved one, a different set of damages may be sought, including:

  • Pecuniary (financial) losses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship and society
  • Loss of inheritance.

In some cases, punitive damages may be pursued as well. These damages are awarded when a defendant engages in especially reckless conduct. They are aimed at punishing and deterring the defendant and others from similar misconduct in the future.

In Texas, you have a limited period of time in which to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. This is called the statute of limitations.  Generally speaking, in many cases you must file a lawsuit within two years from the date of the accident.  Please note that some cases have a different statute of limitations.

It is important to pay attention to this deadline in your case. You want to contact an attorney before this deadline approaches. If a lawsuit must be filed, you want to make sure that Tate Law Offices has sufficient time to prepare your case for filing.
