Understanding how the Litigation Process Works in a Personal Injury Claim

As board certified Fort Worth personal injury lawyers, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in a range of different accident scenarios such as car crashes, motorcycle wrecks, vicious dog attacks, and so on.


One of the most common questions we get asked by our clients when they first hire us is “I’ve never had to deal with anything like this before, can you explain to me the litigation process?”


First of all, it’s important to understand that the litigation process can seek like a very difficult and complex process. However, our law firm deals with the litigation of personal injury and wrongful death cases on a daily basis. This is what we do – and we are very good at it.


The litigation process begins as soon as a client hires us to represent them against the at-fault party’s insurance company. We will announce that we have been hired to work on your case and that we will be dealing with everything on your behalf going forward.


In many cases, the insurance adjustor will have been blatantly treating our client unfairly or giving them the runaround prior to them hiring legal representation. Once the insurance company knows that we are working on your case, they know that we mean business – and that they will most likely have to pay you a lot more money than if they’d just treated you fairly in the first place.


Our Fort Worth injury law firm will deal with everything for you from this point onwards. In addition to dealing with the negligent driver’s insurance company, this also means exploring other avenues of compensation for you – such as your own insurance policy if you have Personal Injury Protection coverage. There might other be other liable policies we can claim against if your medical costs are above a certain threshold.


If you need a doctor specialized in a certain area, we can help you find one who will work with car accident victims. If you don’t have health insurance, we will work with you to find a doctor who will defer their fees until after your claim has been settled. If necessary, we will work with the hospital to reduce your fees – and we will do the same thing with the insurance company if they have filed a subrogation claim against you.


Throughout the entire process, we will keep you informed of the progress of your case. If it becomes to file a lawsuit and take the negligent driver’s insurance company to court, then we will explain to you why we think that’s necessary. It is always ultimately your decision whether or not to do this.


Our goal is always to recover the maximum possible compensation for all of our clients. We want to give you the best customer experience throughout the whole litigation process and take away as much stress surrounding your accident as we can.
