How Our Injury Attorneys Can Help You When You’ve Been Hurt
It can be hard to know what to do with a personal injury claim. If you call your insurance company or the company that represents the responsible party, they will either offer you a quick settlement that is far less than what your claim is worth in exchange for you signing a form releasing them from further liability, or they will drag their heels for months before telling you that your claim isn’t valid.
The fact is that insurance companies deal with accident and injury claims every day, and they are trained experts in settling claims as cheaply as possible or convincing people they don’t have a case. We have the experience and ability that is needed to handle these tactics. Our business is in representing injury victims and helping them get significant compensation for their injuries.
Here are a couple of key ways in which we help injury victims prove their claims to an insurance company or jury.
Proving the Injury
Insurance companies have many ways of disputing or denying that a serious injury exists. They might say that the injury can’t be serious based on the property damage, how soon you saw a doctor, or other facts surrounding the accident. They might claim the injuries are due to a pre-existing medical condition or degenerative disease. They might also hire their own doctors to examine you and dispute the findings of your physician.
We take the time to fully document your injuries and clearly show what you have to go through because of the accident. We work with doctors and medical experts as needed to prepare and present a compelling case to the insurer or a jury.
Insurers are likely to deny that their insured is responsible for the accident if they think they can get away with it. They’ll say the accident couldn’t have happened the way you say it did, or they’ll claim that your own negligence was to blame. Insurance carriers work hard to shift as much of the blame onto the injured victim as they can, because every percentage of negligence assigned to the victim reduces the dollar amount the insurer will have to pay. If they can put more than 50% of the blame on the victim, then they won’t have to pay anything at all under Texas law.
With decades of combined experience in complex litigation, our lawyers know the law and know how to build a case that proves the responsible party’s liability and fault. We work just as hard proving the other party’s negligence as we do proving that you were not to blame. Our goals are the same as yours: to get you the maximum compensation available and hold the responsible party accountable for the damage they’ve done.
Help With Wrongful Death in Houston and Corpus Christi
When another’s negligence has taken the life of a loved one, the effects can be disastrous on the family left behind. Family members are often stuck with thousands of dollars in medical bills at the very same time they are dealing with the loss of the family’s primary or secondary wage earner or household manager, not to mention the pain and shock of dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one. When your world has been turned upside-down, we can help you through the process of getting your life back in order.
Texas law authorizes a surviving spouse, children or parents, or the executor of the estate, to file a wrongful death claim against the party whose negligence is responsible for causing the death. If successful in proving the responsible party’s negligence and fault, we can recover significant compensation to pay for funeral and burial costs and final medical expenses, make up for lost earnings and benefits or lost inheritance, as well as compensation for the mental and emotional anguish and loss of companionship experienced by the spouse, children and parents of the deceased.
In appropriate cases, we seek exemplary damages as well that further the cause of justice and help promote healing in the family. Also, if the deceased had a viable personal injury claim, we can combine that claim with the wrongful death claim, making sure the responsible party is held fully accountable for the harm they have caused and maximizing compensation for the bereaved family members.
