Why You Want a Personal Injury Lawyer
Texas Personal Injury Lawyer
Typically, you only get one bite at the apple. That means you likely will only have one opportunity to make a claim for compensation after an accident. There are rules that must followed in making a claim, and a thorough understanding of the law is essential in maximizing your compensation.
The company or insurance company fighting your personal injury claim will have skilled lawyers and knowledgeable attorneys on their side trying to take advantage of the facts and laws to minimize or avoid paying you.
In addition, with all personal injury claims, there are strict time limits in which you must bring a claim. These time limits are known legally as “Statute of Limitations.” If you fail to bring a claim within the prescribed period of time, you may be barred from bringing a claim forever. If you engage a Texas personal injury lawyer to represent you, make sure your lawyer knows when the accident happened, so they can make sure they file the appropriate paperwork in a timely fashion.
There is a saying amongst lawyers that a lawyer who represents himself (or herself) has a fool for a client. Even lawyers, who are well versed in the law and civil procedure, know that representing themselves is not prudent. In a personal injury claim, knowledgeable attorneys understand that they need an advocate who is passionate, but not emotionally attached to the situation.
When you retain the services an experienced lawyer, you not only get the benefit of knowledgeable information and advice, but you get an advocate who is dedicated to representing your case passionately, but with a level head – a voice of reason when emotion clouds your judgment.
