FAQ About Hiring the Right Car Accident Attorney

Your choice of a personal injury lawyer to help you pursue compensation after a car accident in Texas is a very important decision. The lawyer who advocates on your behalf will work closely with you and should work hard for you. The outcome of your case may impact your life for a very long time. Once the case is settled, you will not be able to go back and ask for more compensation. Therefore, it is important to have a lawyer you can trust to watch out for your best interests. Ask these questions as you look for an attorney and the right choice may become clear.

  • Does the attorney listen and communicate clearly with you?
  • Does the attorney have a track record of many favorable outcomes for other clients who had suffered similar injuries in similar accidents?
  • Does the attorney seem overly eager to pressure you to accept a low-ball offer just to get the case over with? This approach is not usually in a client's best interests.
  • Will the attorney take the time and thought necessary to do a thorough investigation into the fundamental facts about the accident, your injuries and their impact on your life?
  • Will the lawyer apply sophisticated analysis methodology to all relevant factors in your car accident, whether it was caused by a distracted driver, a defective roadway or a criminal act and use this information to pursue maximum available compensation on your behalf from any and all sources?
  • Is the attorney aggressive and persistent when presenting your claim before an insurance claims adjuster, a judge or a jury?
  • Will the attorney work on a contingency basis, not charging attorneys' fees until and unless your case is settled?
  • Does the attorney understand the nuances and pitfalls of the insurance world and seem confident about challenging insurers' teams of lawyers? Your lawyer should be one who works hard to maximize clients' ultimate net compensation after things like subrogation, stacking and policy limits are taken into account.
