After a Personal Injury
There are several things that must be done after a personal injury to make sure you have a solid claim and your rights are protected. First, we need to make sure that the investigative agency was informed. For instance, were the police get informed? Was OSHA or any other necessary governmental entity, informed of the accident? The second thing that’s important is to seek immediate medical attention. This not only means going to the local hospital but also going to see your personal doctor. Typically when you go to a hospital, they are just going to look at life and death situations and only take care of that. There are going to be many injuries that are going to be untreated, which is why you need to go seek additional medical help.
The last thing that’s important to do is hire an experienced lawyer who can guide you and look into everything that needs to be done. For example, does there need to be an investigation? Does an expert need to be hired to go examine the scene or the area where the accident happened? If you have any questions, we are here to help.
Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney
There are four criteria that every person should ask when visiting a lawyer involving a personal injury. First, you’ll want to know if the firm or lawyer is a personal injury lawyer. That means all they handle is personal injury work. Here at Garcia & Ochoa, that’s all we do. The next thing that you’re going to want to know is if they’ve had success as a personal injury trial lawyer. The lawyer should show that they’ve successfully handled injury cases, taken them to court, and won verdicts. Don’t be afraid to ask the lawyer to show you their past results. Lastly, if they are a trial lawyer, are they board-certified? Board-certified means that you’re one of the top 3% of the lawyers in this state in that area of law. If you have any questions, please contact our office today.
Personal Injury Settlement Timeline
To resolve a personal injury claim in the state of Texas, it can vary anywhere from six months to three years. Personal injury encompasses a lot of things. Are we talking about a strained back? Are we talking about a broken knee? Are you going to need an operation? Once we’ve worked with your doctors and see the extent of injury that you’ve suffered, then we know how much treatment you have to go through and what is it going to take for you to get well. We also have to look at the court docket and see how many cases are in front of yours before we get a trial date. Then we have to see how fair we are going to be treated by the insurance company and how hard they’re going to fight us. If you have any questions concerning the process and length of time for a personal injury case, please feel free to call.
Personal Injury Claim Value
I had a client come in last week who was involved in a personal injury claim. She wanted to know how much her case was worth. It’s important to note that when answering this question, there are several factors you must look at. One of the first things you must figure out is the extent of the injuries that the person suffered. Another factor that you’re going to look at is how and why the accident happened. The third thing you’re going to look at is the amount of insurance involved for the person who you have a claim against.
Now, with respect to how and why it happened, the jury is going to look at had this accident happened before, how many times, and why it happened. Was there a policy in place that got violated by the defendant that you’re going to sue? All of these are important factors. It’s important that you talk to a lawyer who has experience with this so they can help you determine what the potential value of the case is. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help.
