This post concludes our series on the handling of personal injury cases. Our goal with these articles was to help such victims and their families understand what to expect from the process as their case moves forward. The point we cannot stress enough is that such cases are highly contested, can be tied up in the court system for some time, and that such matters are complex. Hiring an attorney experienced in handling serious injury cases is crucial.
We addressed several topics over our last several posts. Issues we looked at included:
- How to proceed after one has been paralyzed in an accident
- Dealing with insurance companies in paralysis cases
- Establishing damages when one is paralyzed
- Going to trial in a paralysis case
These are important topics for several reasons. First, many are unsure of what to do after they or a loved one have suffered such an injury. Second, it is important that insurance negotiations be handled correctly or one runs the risk of receiving a settlement which is less than what they deserve. Third, establishing damages in such a case can be complex at it will involve the use of expert witnesses. Finally, one who understands what to expect at trial is less likely to feel overwhelmed by the process.
One thing we have stressed through each of these articles is the fact that cases where one has been paralyzed, due to another’s negligence, should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. It is important to contact a firm which handles large-scale harm cases and has a history of obtaining results on behalf of its clients. This is true whether you were injured in counties including Tarrant, Dallas, Johnson, and Wise as well as Fort Worth, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Haltom City, Richland Hills, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake, Arlington, Keller, Grand Prairie, and Dallas.
