Ways To Maximize Your Settlement After An Accidental Injury

Clients often ask me how much compensation they can expect to receive if their cases go well. It’s an important question, but the answer is: It depends. The financial value of each case depends on a number of factors, some of which are in your control. The following list is a sampling of factors that can help you maximize your settlement or set the stage for a sizeable verdict at trial:

  • Get a personal injury lawyer on your side as soon as possible. I give this advice based on years of observations in law practice. In fact, many insurance companies assign different types of adjusters to cases based on whether the injured person has an attorney or is on their own. When I am on board soon after an accident, both my clients and I will have many more opportunities for success.
  • Get a medical evaluation as soon as you can. Some people put this off if they can walk away from an accident. But later, after the initial shock has passed, they experience the effects of debilitating neck, back or head injuries. If they have waited too long to see a doctor, insurance companies and opposing lawyers typically express skepticism about the causes of these symptoms. It’s too easy for them to blame the client’s lifestyle rather than accept the client’s subjective reports about how they feel.
  • Gather evidence and contribute to your attorney’s investigation in any way that you can. Did you or someone with you take pictures at the scene of the accident? Did you collect contact information from eyewitnesses or another driver? Did you ask the police for a copy of their accident report? If you can say yes to questions such as these, you will help get the investigation off to a good start.
  • Follow doctors’ orders to the greatest extent that you can. If a doctor asks you to rest to let your neck injury heal, make a concerted effort to follow these instructions. Keep a log to record your activities, medication doses and so on. If you do not do your part, your legal opponents may use this as an argument against compensating you fully.
  • Work with your attorney to discover and take advantage of all potential sources of compensation. For example, if you were injured on the job, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits as well as file third-party liability claims against one or more parties other than your employer. There may be other sources of compensation you haven’t thought of. Developing a trusting attorney-client relationship will help a great deal.
  • If your opponent makes an ample settlement offer, take the time you need to arrive at a well-informed yes or no answer. Your attorney should help you gather and understand all the facts and legal analysis that are necessary for you to make the right decision about whether to accept the settlement offer or take your case to trial.

Why Should I Hire A Texas Personal Injury Attorney?

By working with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney, you can rely on them to provide you with the answers you need after a serious injury. When you are hurt, you need to understand what your options are, and an attorney can help you do that through an initial case evaluation, oftentimes free of charge. If they agree to take your case, the attorney will then proceed to investigate your claim, searching for evidence to support your case as they prepare to file the lawsuit. While your case is pending, they will negotiate with the other side to attempt to settle the case favorably, but if they refuse, then the attorney will represent you in court for your trial. Most personal injury attorneys are familiar with the tricks and tactics that insurance companies and defense firms will employ to delay and hinder your case and will actively work to avoid these issues for you.

Do I Have A Spring Texas Personal Injury Case?

When you meet with an injury lawyer, they will examine several factors to help you understand if you have a viable case. First, they will look at the type of injury or harm that you suffered and its severity. Next, they will look to see if the person who injured you had a duty of care to avoid harming you and if they breached that duty. It is important that this breach of duty be the proximate cause of the injury you suffered in order for you to have a solid claim. Finally, the lawyer will look at the damage you suffered from the injury, both monetary and nonmonetary, to determine whether it is worth it for you to pursue your case.

How Long Does A Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?

There is no set timeline for how long your case may take because it all depends on the unique circumstances of your case. However, you can generally expect your case to take between one and three years, based on how long the average case takes. The important thing to know is that if you have been injured, you should seek out a personal injury lawyer in Spring, Texas, quickly, as you only have two years to file your case.

What Percentage Of Texas Personal Injury Cases Go To Trial?

Most cases do not actually go to trial. Instead, most defendants will choose to settle a case rather than risk an unfavorable judgment against them if the claim looks especially solid. According to Forbes, about 95 percent of civil cases will normally be settled out of court before they approach the trial stage. However, this can vary depending on the type of case you have and what the details of your case look like.

How Much Does A Personal Injury Trial Cost?

Many people are worried that obtaining legal representation will be costly and out of reach. However, that is often not the case with personal injury law firms. Most plaintiffs’ personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis; essentially, they will not charge you unless you are successful in your case. The fee is taken as a percentage of the monetary damages award that you would receive for your injury.
