What is a Personal Injury Claim?(The Woodlands, TX January 12, 2022)– You have seen the billboards about attorneys urging immediate calls to help you get money for an injury sustained in a car accident or work-related injury. But to ensure you get effective representation, it is important to research attorneys before hiring them.
The best place to start is by checking for board certification. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization certifies attorneys in specific practice areas, including Personal Injury Trial Law, if they demonstrate expertise through experience and detailed written examinations. Unfortunately, only 3% of attorneys are board certified. When your life is changed by a devastating accident due to negligence of a vehicle accident, medical procedure, and unsafe public area, a sports accident due to unreliable equipment, or an unsafe work environment it is important to hold the responsible party accountable for medical bills, change of lifestyle, or loss of income.
Personal injury is defined as any accident, illness, or trauma that affects the physical or psychological wellbeing of an individual after the injury. The monetary award granted by courts is based on seriousness of the traumatic injury. A personal injury attorney can give an estimate of the claim based on their experience.
How do you know if a personal injury attorney is trustworthy and will provide you accurate information? Look for information from reviews and their accreditations on their website. Verify the accreditations with the business they came from to ensure they are still valid and have not been revoked. Ask friends who they may recommend, then make an appointment to speak to the recommended attorney. An experienced personal injury attorney will provide a free initial consultation with payment due through an agreement contingency fee based on award granted by courts. The attorney should have trial experience and be able to give an estimate of the court process pertinent to your specific claim.
