FAQ

Do I need a Personal Injury Attorney?

A personal injury attorney will have special expertise, experience and certification that can make an enormous impact on the outcome of your claim. A personal injury attorney should have trial experience, negotiation experience, knowledge of medical terms and processes and of course, a deep understanding of Texas negligence law. It is likely that you will be going through this injury claim process for the first time, and you will need someone to guide you who handles such cases every day. Here are some tips for choosing a Personal Injury Attorney.

What is PIP coverage?

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a type of insurance that covers an injured person's medical bills and lost wages as a result of an automobile accident. It is also called 'no-fault' insurance since it pays regardless of whether you were at fault during an accident. While PIP can be part of an automobile insurance policy, it is different because it covers only personal injury and not damages to the vehicle itself.

Should I sign a release?

You should not offer any written or oral statement, or sign anything, without first seeking counsel from a personal injury attorney. When you are being asked to sign something by another party's attorney or insurance company, remember that those individuals are representing somebody else and therefore may be asking you to sign something that is not in YOUR best interest. Engage a personal injury attorney to make sure that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for any damages to you or your property.

How much is my case worth?

Each case is unique, so there is no easy answer to this question. In determining the fair compensation you deserve, a personal injury attorney will consider the extent of your injuries, the allowed insurance limits, other damages you may have suffered, and other circumstances related to your case.

What is negligence?

Negligence is when another person or entity does not use a reasonable standard of care for the safety of others. When a careless driver or an unsafe business is negligent of the safety of others, they may become liable for any damages suffered by others due to their negligence.
