It’s vitally important that you find the right personal injury attorney to handle your car accident case in Dallas. Studies show that clients who have an attorney on average receive larger settlements from their accidents than those who do not have an attorney. However, that does not mean that just anyone can handle your case. You will want to seek out an experienced personal injury attorney with experience in handling your type of case.
Although the vast majority of personal injury cases are settled without going to trial, you will want to seek out a personal injury attorney with trial experience. Insurance adjusters know if an attorney will not take a case to trial, and will often refuse to offer a fair settlement because they know that the attorney will not take the case to court. It’s important to know that not all automobile accident cases need an attorney. If there was only minor damage to your vehicle and no medical expenses, you likely do not need to pay an attorney for something that you could do yourself, which is negotiating a fair settlement.
There are a number of signs to look for when choosing a personal injury attorney. You should seek out a law firm that is not high pressure. Some law firms exert immediate pressure on potential clients in an effort to get them to sign, when in reality the accident victim may not need an attorney. An attorney should be able to honestly answer your questions and provide information on what value they can expect to add to your case. You should also look for a lawyer whose personality meshes with your own. If the case ends up going to trial, you may end up spending a significant amount of time with the attorney.
