When you or someone you love is hurt in a car accident, you need an experienced and aggressive Fort Worth car accident lawyer to help protect your legal rights. A lawyer does more than just file a lawsuit. In fact, most Forth Worth car accident claims are settled by an attorney before the claim is heard by a judge. Yet, you need an attorney who understands how insurance companies work, how to negotiate to get you the compensation you deserve, and experienced in going to trial.
How Can a Fort Worth Car Accident Lawyer Help You?
A Fort Worth car accident lawyer helps you get your life back. Car accidents, even if they don’t result in serious injuries, can leave you with medical bills, lost wages, and damage to your car. Serious accidents can cause disability, death, or life-altering injuries. You could need surgery, rehab, long-term medical care, and your family could lose your income.
Yet, it’s not just about helping you get the compensation that you deserve. It’s also about helping you get better. The stress that comes from a car accident is intense. No one expects it to happen. Stress can actually make it harder for you to heal from physical injuries. A Fort Worth car accident lawyer handles the other party, their lawyer, and the insurance companies on your behalf. Your job? Your job is to just rest and get better.
Thompson Law helps car accident victims navigate the Texas legal system and protect their legal rights. Under Texas law, you only have two years from the date of your injury to pursue a claim. Thompson Law can help you determine the best course of action to help you get your claim started.
Should You Settle with the Insurance Company?
If your insurance company or the other person’s insurance company sends you an offer, should you accept it? How would you know if it’s in your best interest? Insurance companies are for-profit companies. This means that despite the legal requirement for Texas drivers to have car insurance, the insurance company is interested in turning as much of a profit as they can. They use insurance adjusters, sometimes referred to as a claims agent, to review your claim. Often, their goal is to pay you as little as possible. Insurance adjustors aren’t given a lot of authority when it comes to settling. Their low limits generally won’t pay for your car, your medical bills, and your lost wages. They’ll tell you it’s all they can do for you.
If you’re pressured into signing a settlement agreement, know that you do not have to sign it. You shouldn’t sign it until you have it reviewed by a Forth Worth car accident lawyer. The insurance company, even when it’s your insurance company, isn’t looking out for you. They’re looking out for their bottom line. Thompson Law can help you determine if a settlement agreement is in your best interest. If it isn’t, we can help you during the negotiation process.
