It is very important that you hire an experienced PI attorney to fight for your rights. If you do not retain an auto accident attorney after being injured in a vehicle accident, you will not likely receive the compensation that you deserve. Insurance companies’ primary interest is to make profits. They protect that interest by paying as little as possible on accident claims. Yes, even with the vast amounts of premiums that they are paid, they do not hold your best interests at heart. Insurance companies’ understand that most individuals are not familiar with the law. They use individual’s ignorance of the law to their advantage. An experienced personal injury attorney changes the dynamics of this relationship. Melvin Houston & Associates has helped accident injury victims secure the compensation that they deserve for decades by fighting for fair compensation for insurance accident claims.
It is best to retain a lawyer to represent you as soon as possible following a personal injury from an accident. Texas Statute of limitation establishes legal deadlines for filing a claim. If those legal deadlines expire, your claim may be permanently barred. It is wise to get started as soon as possible to ensure enough time is allotted to allow thorough investigation of your claim.
Each case is unique; therefore a general timetable can’t be established for personal injury cases. For example, an auto injury accident may settle in a few months without the need for a trial while others may take a couple of years before final resolution.
It is not possible to answer this question in advance of thorough preparation of claims. The value of a case involves many factors and depends on the facts/evidence of each individual case. Some of these factors include the amount of medical expenses, how much the injuries and treatments affected the victim’s life and work, or the severity of your injuries. Payouts for serious injuries such as permanent disability, burns, broken bones … may be much higher.
