The first thing you should do is seek medical attention immediately if you are injured or think you might be injured. Second, document the accident scene with photos or, even better, video. Make sure to gather witness names and contact information as well if possible. Third, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer before you give a recorded statement to an insurance company.
Yes. If you can’t afford medical treatment, we will make sure you get in to see the doctors and specialists you need so that you can feel better without you having to pay for it up front.
No, the insurance company is just trying to keep you from hiring a lawyer. The reality is that if your injuries are more than minimal, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get the compensation you are entitled to under the law. Otherwise, you will only be offered pennies on the dollar for your injuries and other damages.
You need a lawyer because insurance companies will do everything they can to minimize the amount they have to pay you. That means taking advantage of any mistakes you may make during the claim process. Hiring a lawyer with experience battling insurance companies ensures that you will not inadvertently harm your case by saying or doing the wrong thing.

It can take anywhere from a few weeks in some cases to 18 months or more in others to resolve a case, depending on several factors. Typically, cases take between 6 months and one year to resolve and most settle outside of court. Once you are released from medical treatment, we will order all of your medical records and bills related to the accident in order to approach the at-fault party or their insurance company with a demand package. If the at-fault party is willing to pay an amount that would put enough money in your pocket to make you want to accept after medical bills, fees and expenses are paid, then your case may settle before a lawsuit is even filed. If a lawsuit is necessary, we will file it with your permission and push the litigation process along as quickly as we reasonably can. Be aware that filing a lawsuit will increase the amount of time the process will take as well as increase the attorney’s fees and expenses so it should be done only when necessary to force the at-fault party or its insurance company to pay a proper amount. Every case is unique, call today in order to discuss the specifics of yours with an experienced Houston personal injury lawyer free of charge.
