This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on choosing a car accident lawyer in Laredo, Texas. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that, for obvious reasons, many individuals do not know how to proceed after they have been in a wreck. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters will often attempt to take advantage of people’s situation by offering them a “low-ball” settlement. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist you with the selection of an attorney. If you are a loved one were been harmed by another’s negligence, then contact us today to schedule an initial consultation. In addition to Laredo, we serve other areas of South Texas.
I addressed a number of topics over my recent articles. Issues which I analyzed include:
- Immediate steps to take after a car accident
- How wearing a seatbelt impacts Laredo car accident cases
- How long it may take to settle a car accident case
- Why car accident victims should speak to an attorney before talking to an insurance adjuster
- Who pays the medical bills in a car accident
- The trial process after a car accident
I felt it was necessary to address these topics for a number of reasons. First, it is important to immediately seek medical care following an accident. Failing to do so can lead to the defense claiming that any injuries occurred in between the time of the accident and the time that medical care was sought. This can possibly result in the jury believing that the victim was injured from something other than the car accident. Second, the law regarding how wearing or not wearing a seatbelt impacts car accident cases can vary from state to state. It is important that Texas residents know how our state’s laws apply to them. Third, reaching a settlement can take a significant amount of time if a victim has been seriously injured. This is due to the fact that one’s long-term prognosis must be reasonably ascertained before a demand may be sent to an insurance carrier. Fourth, many medical providers are willing to provide care in exchange for a lien on any eventual settlement. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process can help to ensure that it goes smoothly.
One point I stressed in each of these articles is that it is crucial that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one have been involved In a wreck. Counsel will take immediate steps to notify the insurance company of the representation. They will then deal with the insurance company directly. This will allow you to focus on the important business of treating your injuries. My office prides itself on providing a high level of service and we are honored to serve our local community.
