Although a personal injury claim is similar in process to making a property damage claim, the two are actually very different. For one, most people are able to successfully resolve an insurance claim for their car repairs without the aid of an attorney. With a bodily injury claim, however, having a board certified lawyer on your side can truly make all the difference.
Insurance companies will not pay you the compensation you deserve without a fight. Personal injury claims are often extremely expensive, so it is very common that the negligent party’s insurance provider will make it as difficult as possible for you to recover the full and fair compensation that you deserve under Texas law. Popular dirty tricks they use to take an unfair advantage of accident victims is by asking you to give a recorded statement, then using your words against you to make it seem like you’re not as hurt as you say you are, or that you yourself were at fault for the wreck. Please understand that you have absolutely no legal obligation to give a recorded statement to the at-fault party’s insurance company.
For these reasons, it is incredibly important that you take your case to an experienced personal injury who will be able to help you assess the value of your case prior to you inadvertently making a mistake which could cost you more than you realize. Injuries to your person or to an immediate relative is not the same as damage to your vehicle. A car, truck or motorcycle can be easily replaced. You cannot. If you have suffered injuries in a traffic accident which was not your fault, the consequences can quite literally be life-changing. It is crucial that you are fully apprised of your legal rights and responsibilities so that you can recover the full and fair compensation owed to you.
Depending on the severity of your injuries, it might well be that you may never be able to work again. What are you going to do then? Whether or not you have disability insurance, you are still entitled to recover loss of wages compensation from the negligent motorist’s insurance company. Even if you will eventually recover from your injuries in the future, you may still require month or years of expensive medical treatment, physical therapy or chiropractic treatment. Regardless, if you are not able to do your job, you will be losing money. You are allowed to recover your income as part of your Texas personal injury claim.
As a Denton County trial attorney, I have seen far too many situations where an innocent victim made their already unfair situation so much worse by attempting to deal with the insurance company without legal representation. The sad truth is that the insurance adjustor does not care that by conning you out of fair compensation you will likely go bankrupt and lose your home. They have only one goal: to protect their company’s profits. You need a lawyer who will protect your rights and get you the money you deserve.
