1) Choose the Best Attorney
There are four things you should consider when hiring a pedestrian accident attorney to handle your case. The first thing to look at is if they are a personal injury lawyer. They only handle personal injury cases, not divorces, bankruptcies, or criminal defense. Second, they should be a trial lawyer. This means that the lawyer will go to court with you and fight to get a verdict when the insurance company is not being fair. The personal injury trial lawyer should also be board-certified. This means that they have been recognized by the state as having specialized knowledge and expertise in their area of law. Only 3% of the lawyers in this state have board-certification in personal injury. Lastly, they should be able to talk to you about the successes and the results they’ve had in handling those types of cases. If you have any questions, please feel free to call my office.
2) Understand the Settlement Timeline
A pedestrian injury claim in Texas, on average, can take up to 18 months to settle. However, it depends on the severity of the injury and how quickly you heal. If the insurance company is willing to offer a fair settlement, the case may resolve in under a year. If they’re not willing to be reasonable with their offers, then we would have to file suit. We’ll also have to see how fast the court can give us a trial date. Those are the factors that are involved. Every personal injury case has those factors that need to be dealt with. If you have questions regarding those factors, please give us a call.
