Choosing the Right Personal Injury Lawyer in the Fort Worth, Texas Area
This is the first post in a series dealing with important issues Fort Worth area residents should consider when choosing a personal injury lawyer. We understand that after suffering an injury circumstances can become overwhelming and it can be difficult to determine the right attorney to retain. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is filled with billboards, radio ads, television spots, and other types of attorney advertising that can make it hard to differentiate one lawyer from another. Our goal over the course of this series is to point out issues we feel are important to consider when you or a loved one suffers a serious injury due to the fault of another.
We will be addressing a number of topics in this series. Subjects we will look at include:
- The importance of not accepting a “quick settlement”
- The need to hire a firm that will litigate your case and take it to trial if necessary
- The importance of hiring a law firm with extensive resources
- The need to hire an attorney that will adequately investigate your case
Choosing the right personal injury lawyer is one of the most important decisions an injury victim will make. If a victim hires counsel who will simply accepts the insurance company’s first settlement offer, the attorney is most likely not getting a better resolution than the injured person could have gotten for themselves. In addition, hiring counsel with sufficient resources to take a case to trial is crucial to ensure that your rights are fully protected and the evidence in the case is presented to a jury in a way that shows the full extent of the harm caused and who was at fault. Lastly, it is important that your case is adequately investigated. A full investigation helps make certain that all possible parties, witnesses, and liability theories are pursued. These are all issues we will explore more in-depth as this series progresses.
It is important to choose a law firm with significant experience in defending the rights of Texas injury victims. Counsel should handle catastrophic loss cases and matters involving serious injury. Your attorney should also handle these cases in all Texas counties including Tarrant, Dallas, Johnson, and Wise, as well as Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Haltom City, Richland Hills, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake, Arlington, Keller, Grand Prairie, Dallas, and Fort Worth.
