Should I Handle My Own Personal Injury Case?

​It depends on the facts of your case. Some personal injury cases in Texas are clear-cut and simple. Fault is obvious and damages are easy to calculate. However, many other cases are complex and require significant investigation, analysis, and resources. In these circumstances, it makes more sense to have experienced attorney by your side to protect your legal rights. Just because you can do something by yourself doesn’t always mean it that you should do it by yourself. Often the other side will have a team of lawyers and experts to try and disprove your claim. You might not be familiar with the process or the rules. As a result, we recommend that if you are unsure it is often best to talk with a personal injury lawyer about your case.

​Do I Really Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

​​Chances are, you will have a multitude of injuries following a Texas accident. In the immediate aftermath, you might even think you can pursue your claim without any assistance from legal counsel or other representation. However, before you set off in that direction, it might be worthwhile to consider a few points.

  • First, in Texas injury victims tend to recover more with counsel than without it. Often the recovery amounts are as much as three or four times more than without being represented by a lawyer.
  • Second, what if the other party denies that they were at fault? Do you have the time, experience, skill, or resources to take your case to trial in court by yourself?

These are just some reasons why you might want to consider hiring a lawyer to pursue your Texas personal injury case but there are many more. A personal injury lawyer can take the fear out of suing someone else and can show you exactly what to do. More importantly, however, experienced lawyers can help you understand what your rights are and how they fit into the overall legal system.

What Exactly Can A Lawyer Do For My Personal Injury Claim?

​There are a few things that any personal injury lawyer should be able to provide you with for your Texas Personal injury claim.

  • First, they should help you organize your claim, ordering records, and prepare a demand to send off on your behalf.
  • They should be able to add experience and wisdom so that you know exactly what to look for each step of the process.
  • A personal injury will present to the insurance company or the opposing side your best arguments of your case.
