Choosing an Attorney
The other day a family came into the office and wanted to talk about a case involving a bicycle accident involving one of their family members. We told them that there are four things they should consider in making a decision as far as who the best lawyer is that they should hire. They should ask every lawyer the following questions. They should ask whether or not they are a personal injury trial lawyer. In other words, is the lawyer a personal injury lawyer? Does he handle anything other than personal injury cases? He shouldn’t. We here do not handle divorces, bankruptcies, or criminal cases; we devote ourselves to personal injury.
The next thing is whether or not he is a trial lawyer. That means that he goes to court, goes in front of a judge, goes in front of a jury, and fight the defense. That’s when an insurance company won’t be fair with you. The other thing is whether or not he has had successes in handling these cases, whether or not he has won these cases and has obtained good verdicts for his clients.
A bicycle accident claim in the state of Texas is dependent on how badly the person was hurt. If the person was hurt moderately, it could take about a year and a half to resolve the case. If the person was hurt severely, it will probably take longer. The factors that are going to be looked at are going to be the injury, how quickly you heal, and whether or not the insurance company will be fair with you. If the insurance company isn’t fair with you, then we have to file suit. In filing suit, we have to worry about the court’s docket, and then we have to worry about the date the court gives us.
