Personal Injury Lawyers – Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1.Q. Why Do You Need an Attorney?

A. If you have been seriously injured and it appears this was caused by another person’s actions, you should meet with an attorney. Without an attorney, the out-of-pocket cost for a lawsuit against a giant corporation, the government, or a large insurance company would be impossible for most clients to bear. The only realistic chance of standing up against large institutions is having an attorney who is willing to take all the risks of the litigation and who has the experience and competence to level the playing field on your behalf. our firm has been doing this for well over a decade. personal injury lawyers - car accident attorneys

2. Q. Why Should You Choose Your Firm?

A. We maintain the traditional, individual approach to cases. Our attorneys, who only deal with personal injury cases, will look at the specific merits of each case individually and develop the claim in accordance with its own strengths, weaknesses, and circumstances. Each case we accept receives the personalized attention it deserves. We handle each case based on a team approach in which one attorney is assigned to manage the case, but all our attorneys discuss the case in an open conference. This approach brings over 80 years of legal experience to work toward developing each case to its fullest extent. More information on this website @
3. Q. How Do You Determine if You Have a Case?

A. Our attorneys know how to apply the law to the facts of your case. From this, they will be able to make a judgment for you whether or not you have a case. Initially, one of our attorneys will conduct a preliminary evaluation over the phone. If the claim appears to have merit, you will then meet with him for a more detailed consultation. The initial evaluation is free of charge.

4. Q. How Can We Help You?

A. We will help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries without inconvenience. If we agree to handle your case, you will not be obligated to spend any of your own money pursuing the matter. Representing you on a contingency fee basis, we will vigorously represent your interest in obtaining a fair settlement or trying the case to verdict. In any matter that we undertake, the client makes the decision of when to settle and whether to settle. We do, however, advise our clients of our opinions on whether the settlement is fair and adequate under the particular circumstances.

5. Q. What is a Contingency Fee and Who Pays the Expenses?

We handle cases on a contingency fee basis which means our fee is a percentage of judgment or settlement. In Texas, when a case is handled on this basis, it is required that the agreement be in writing. The basic terms of the agreement state that the fee is contingent upon us being able to recover money on your behalf. In other words, you will be under no obligation to pay your attorney’s fees or costs unless we are successful in pursuing the matter. If there is no recovery, we also will not look to you for reimbursement of associated expenses such as monies paid to doctors, experts and investigators who enable us to better prepare for your case.
