Get A Smart Attorney For Your Personal Injury Case
Knowing the Law is Only Half the Battle in Winning Against Well-Funded Defendants and Their Insurance Companies
Contrary to what you might think, knowing the law itself is only about 30 percent of the equation that produces a successful personal case. Much like being a successful race car driver or high-fee CPA, most legal triumphs are a direct result of experience, and knowing how to execute the procedures, prove the damages properly and establish a strong tie between the defendant’s actions and the plaintiff/victim’s injuries. Most importantly, however, is being able to convince a jury in your argument, which is how to win a personal injury trial. When it comes to any profession, from race car driver to CPA to personal injury lawyer, experience wins.
Anyone can read a law book. A lot of you know how to read all those “free advice” legal Web sites. Many people are also tenacious negotiators in life and know how to “do deals”. But when it comes to personal injury, someone on your side must know how to apply the law by using the proper procedural methods and other vital skills that only years of experience have honed to a fine edge.
Sadly, a lot of people don’t call an attorney until something happens to make their chances of winning extremely low. We can tell you that those who call us quickly have a much easier time winning their damage claims and cases than those who call us as a last resort, or too much time has passed, or they tried to handle it themselves and botched the thing.
By first-attempting to represent themselves, victims are often misled by the insurance companies they have been dealing with and their high-priced lawyers. Insurance companies know how to “shine-you off” with low-ball settlement amounts you’ll probably take without the counsel of an equally- shrewd Texas personal injury lawyer. We’ve spoken to many people who have settled, then later come to us when they realize they’ve been fooled into thinking they won, when in fact, they got creamed. The looks on their faces when we tell them they’ve already had their one bite at the “compensation apple” are sad indeed because they signed the release that accompanied that check. So the, that happily relieved defendant (and his insurance company) is off the hook and doesn’t owe them another dime.
Against a lawyer they fear who has a strong case, insurance companies and their defendants are motivated by only one thing: to settle with you simply because your lawyer has a winning track record, which commands their respect and fear. A non-attorney will never create fear in the minds of an insurance company that you need. Insurance companies know at least a thousand ways to beat you. And as soon as you take them on by yourself, or with inexperienced counsel, you’ll learn them all soon enough.
Do you know how to respond to a motion for summary judgment, or how you’re supposed to answer interrogatories? Can you effectively depose witnesses in order to get to the bottom of the facts in your case? Do you know how to properly investigate an accident scene and what to look for? Can you follow the paper trail of defendants who try to hide their money? What recent rules of Texas personal injury law apply to your situation? What should you do if a countersuit is filed against you and you must act quickly or your whole case will get dismissed with prejudice (that means you can’t file again)? These examples are only a sampling of the hurdles common to the everyday activities encountered by the personal injury attorneys at our Texas Law Firm.
