If you believe that your personal injury was caused by the negligence of another party contact a personal injury lawyer or attorney immediately. Jim Rodman is a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer.
If you have been involved in a Texas automobile accident or traffic collision you may be entitled to compensation by the negligent party’s insurance company and/or your own if the negligent driver was uninsured or under insured.
The death of a family member is the most traumatic event in most of our lives. When the family member’s death is caused by negligence, the surviving family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages (money).
When you or your loved one suffer an injury as the result of somebody else’s action, perhaps it seems natural that the person would offer to compensate you for your injury, or that their insurance company will do the right thing and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that rarely happens. Many people will not take responsibility for their actions, and insurance companies profit from under compensating injury victims. Insurance companies and their lawyers also know the governing law backwards and forwards, and they know that most people who aren’t lawyers have no idea what legal rights and remedies they possess.
An experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to build your case, how to negotiate your case with an insurance company, and, if necessary, how to take your case to trial. While it is possible to negotiate your claim with an insurance company yourself, insurance companies will typically do everything they can to take advantage of you and to effect the lowest possible settlement, while attempting to elicit statements from you that will damage your position if you ultimately decide to sue.
A lawyer is in a good position to help you obtain a favorable settlement that, even with the attorney fee deducted, significantly exceeds what you can obtain on your own.
