This is the first post in a series which will discuss several issues which may arise during the handling of Fort Worth, Texas car accident cases. We previously discussed the handling of Fort Worth area car accidents as a general matter. In this series we will be touching on additional issues which individuals should also be aware of. The goal of our coming articles is to provide information which will assist people in better understanding their situation. It is also our goal to provide information which will help with the selection of a personal injury attorney. If you or a loved one have been injured then it is suggested that you contact a lawyer immediately.
We will be addressing several topics over our coming articles. The issues which we will analyze will include:
- The handling of cases which involve commercial vehicles
- Selecting an attorney for your car accident case
- The determination of damages in such matters
There are multiple reasons why we have chosen to address these issues. First, cases which involve commercial vehicles (such as those used for delivery) can be highly complicated. Such matters may involve multiple defendants and multiple theories of liability. Second, when selecting an attorney, it is important that you retain a firm with substantial experience in such matters. Finally, understanding how one’s damages are calculated can be crucial in preventing the acceptance of a “low ball” settlement.
If you or a loved one have been injured then it is vital that you retain an attorney as soon as possible. You only have a limited amount of time in which you may file an action. Also, the longer you wait to bring a case then the greater the chance that you will have difficulty recovering your damages. We strongly suggest that Fort Worth car accident victims retain a firm in which the lawyers are Board Certified in Personal Injury Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. We also suggest that the firm you retain employs its own investigator.
