Q: Do I need an attorney to represent my personal injury claim?

A: While it is possible for accident victims to handle their own injury claims, it is important to remember that the involved insurance companies are in the business of protecting their bottom line. No matter what your damages, these companies do not have your best interests in mind and will only attempt to pay you the lowest settlement amount possible. Do not put yourself at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to securing your rightful compensation. A Waco personal injury attorney will have years of in-depth experience handling a wide range of personal injury cases just like yours and can provide the insight and efficient representation you need for the best results.

Q: Do I have to file a personal injury claim right away?

A. The sooner you take action, the better. In the state of Texas, you will have two years in which you can legally pursue compensation from the at-fault party. However, the success of your claim will also depend on the evidence, such as photographs of the accident and resulting damages, eyewitness testimonies, medical records, and police reports, which may not be available if you wait too long. Contact Williams & Brown LLP as soon as you can to discuss your accident.

Q: How much is my personal injury claim worth?

A: If you have suffered serious injury or the loss of a loved one due to another’s irresponsible actions then you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party. Typically, the at-fault party and his/her insurance provider will compensate the following past, current, and future damages related to the accident:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Physical disability
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Funeral expenses

If the opposing insurance company offers you a settlement, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney before accepting. At Williams & Brown LLP, our skilled legal team will be able to assess the full scope of the damages you have suffered and the compensation you will need in the future.

Q: What is negligence?

A: In order to have a valid personal injury claim, it is essential for the victim to prove that s/he suffered injury as a direct result of another’s negligence, which is the failure to exercise a reasonable standard of care regarding the safety of others. For example, driving while distracted or fatigued is a reckless action that puts others’ at risk of being involved in an injury accident or worse.

Why Choose Us?

Because not all attorneys and law firms are created equal.

Laws that apply to different kinds of injury cases are complex. An attorney or law firm that occasionally handles injury cases may not have the expertise or track record that is necessary to maximize the value of your case.
