Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice has become increasingly challenging over the last several years. Many lawyers have decided not to take these cases, but at our Law Firm, we continue to pursue medical malpractice claims for our clients.

We know how to investigate medical malpractice injuries and wrongful deaths, working closely with medical experts. Our founder is a Board-certified civil trial lawyer with extensive medical malpractice experience. You can rely on his skill as a litigator and his dedication to clients. For a free consultation with a medical malpractice attorney, please call us toll-free today.

What Is Medical Malpractice?
Many medical malpractice claims involve either misdiagnosis of a medical condition, mistreatment of a diagnosed condition, or failure to obtain informed consent from the patient. When we evaluate a claim, we look for evidence of negligence by the doctor, nurse, or hospital.

Misdiagnosis of a Medical Condition – When you go to your doctor’s office or the hospital because of a medical problem, you expect to be treated with the best of care. You expect to hear a diagnosis and then a treatment plan that lays out a course of remedies or medication. To create that plan, your doctor will take your medical history, ask you about the duration and severity of your symptoms, and then order tests and/or blood work, if necessary, to determine what your actual diagnosis is.

But what happens to you or a loved one if the doctor doesn’t follow all of the steps required in standard care and offers up a misdiagnosis? What happens if that misdiagnosis leads to further physical complications, injuries, or even death?

That’s where our Law Firm comes in. If you suspect that your doctor did not follow standard care procedures in diagnosing a medical condition and you’ve suffered because of it, contact the medical malpractice attorneys at our Law Firm. We will evaluate your situation and determine if you have a viable medical malpractice case.

A Formidable Legal Ally
At our Law Firm, we hold medical professionals accountable for their actions in your medical care. If you feel you have suffered further injury or missed time from work and your life because of a medical misdiagnosis, contact us today. Our medical malpractice lawyer now offers complimentary medical malpractice and medical negligence consultation to clients. If we accept your case, we will fight for compensation for medical bills and other medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering. We can also seek funeral expenses and emotional distress damages for families who lost a loved one to wrongful death.

If you have any questions regarding our services, call our office to speak with a dedicated attorney.

Insurance Claims / Bad Faith

Do You Know Your Rights in Insurance and Financial Disputes?
An insurance policy is a contract between the client and the insurance carrier. If the insurance company fails to meet its obligations, you may be able to file a bad faith claim and receive compensation for your losses. Do not settle any insurance claim before you know your rights and have been treated fairly and honestly by the insurance company.

Insurance Claims Lawyer
At our Law Firm, we know how to fight insurance companies. We have dedicated our careers to protecting individuals from insurance company greed. In addition, we represent people who are experiencing problems with financial advisors, stockbrokers, or accountants. To learn how we may be able to help you, please call us toll-free. Your consultation with an attorney for insurance claim litigation is free.

What is Bad Faith?
When you buy insurance, you expect to get a fair deal. Should an event occur for which you have coverage, you expect your insurance company to pay you promptly and fully. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Insurance bad faith is a situation in which your insurance company fails to deal with you in an honest and timely manner. The two most common types of bad faith are:

Denial of a legitimate claim
Excessive delay in payment of a legitimate claim
Insurance policies are intricate and complex legal documents. Some insurance companies play to the fact that most people don’t read through the documents or understand what their coverage fully entails. Remember, every time an insurance company pays out a claim, they lose money, and that isn’t in their best interest.

Sometimes an insurance company will acknowledge your claim, but take an unreasonable amount of time to pay you. This is an internal situation with the company. Often, if the company delays a claim long enough, they are able to stall negative financial reports to its stockholders.

An attorney that is on your side, rather than the side of the insurance company, can really help. When your insurance company realizes that you are prepared, able, and willing to go to court, it becomes in their financial best interest to settle your claim as quickly as possible. A long court case is the last thing an insurance company wants.

If you are having any type of difficulties settling a claim with your insurance company, please contact our insurance bad faith lawyer today for a free consultation. Once we understand the specifics of your case, we will be able to help you more fully explore your legal options.

Talk To Us First
Before you accept a settlement from an insurance company or another party, it is important to consider the short and long-term expenses of your loss. Although the insurance company may pressure you to make a decision quickly, you do not have to accept the initial offer. You have a right to consult an attorney first to make sure you are receiving adequate compensation and not signing away critical rights.

If you are being treated unfairly, we can protect your rights. Call our Law Firm to speak to an experienced insurance claims / bad faith attorney.


Defective Product Injuries

Defective Product Attorney
Successfully arguing a product liability claim is a complex process. You must understand mechanical, engineering, and medical issues. There are usually numerous parties involved such as the manufacturer, distributor, and seller. Determining liability takes thorough investigative work.

At our Law Firm, we have experience with defective products and unsafe drug claims. We work with engineers and medical experts to build strong cases. We also identify the companies involved in producing and selling a defective product and hold them accountable for their negligence. For a free consultation, please call us toll-free.

Injured by a Defective Drug or Product?
Our founder is Board Certified in civil trial law by the Texas Bar. As a civil trial law expert, he has the knowledge and skill to litigate complex product liability cases, whether they involve household appliances, vehicles, drugs, toys, tools, or other devices.

The firm’s product liability practice includes:

Product liability
Manufacturing and design defects
Car rollover defects
Drug recalls

We represent injury victims and their families in injury and wrongful death claims against negligent corporations. Our experienced attorneys will fight for the compensation you are entitled to receive for losses such as medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering.

Product Liability
Product liability law involves any injury sustained from the use of a defective product. This is much more complicated than it sounds. A product can be any item that, when properly used, causes injury. An example would be a barbecue grill that catches fire or a wrongfully filled prescription drug by a pharmacy that causes serious side effects.

Manufacturing Defects / DESIGN DEFECT / Defective Product
our Law Firm specializes in manufacturing and design defect liability law. Any time a product has a design or manufacturing flaw, the item is considered defective. When a product you buy is defective, it can cause a range of potentially harmful problems.

It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that its products are safe and fit for their intended use. This is known as product liability. When they sell defective products to the public, they can be held liable for the resulting injuries and damages. Many times, a large number of defective products are being used in the public realm at the same time. When this happens, all of the victims who have been injured or harmed by the same product can join together and bring a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer responsible.

Here are a few examples of products that have caused harm in the past:

Defective automobiles, like defective tires
Defective saws, tools, blenders, and toys
Defective heart and hip replacements
Contaminated foods
A product liability claim can be brought against any party involved in the chain of manufacturing distribution. This can be the original manufacturer, the manufacturer of any component parts, the distributor, or the retailer.

In the case of prescription drugs, the medical professional or pharmacy that prescribed the drug may also be legally negligent if they prescribed or filled the wrong prescription.

If you have been injured by a consumer product or prescription drug and feel you were not properly warned of the dangers, please contact our product liability attorney today. You deserve compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering and more. Our Law Firm will ensure you get what law entitles you to.

Who is held accountable for product and manufacturing defects? – It depends on who is specifically proven to be negligent. This could be any party involved in the chain of manufacturing, a distributor who caused damage to a product, or even a doctor who has prescribed a drug without warning his or her patient of potential dangers.

What is informed consent? – Informed consent means that you have been made aware of all the risks and side effects involved in using a product or medication before you use it.

If you have any questions regarding our services, call toll-free to speak with a dedicated attorney.

Burn Injuries

Severe burns are horrifying and can be extremely painful. They often require expensive, long-term health care. Intricate medical procedures, such as skin grafts, may be necessary, requiring extended hospital stays. Often, the burn victim will be unable to work during recovery.

The primary cause of burn injuries is auto accidents. Another major cause of burns is the use of unsafe and defective products.

There are six degrees of burns with first-degree burns being the least severe and sixth-degree burns being the most severe. Typically, lawsuits only involve second-degree burns or higher. It is important to contact an injury lawyer as soon as possible to help determine your best course of legal action.

If your burn is the result of someone else’s actions or inactions, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Our Law Firm will help you seek restitution for medical expenses, lost wages, court costs, and pain and suffering.

At our Law Firm, we operate on a strictly contingent basis. We will never charge you anything up-front, nor will we charge you anything if we don’t win your case. If you’ve been burned in an accident, you deserve to explore your legal options. Relief is available. Call or email our injury lawyers today.


Slip & Fall Accidents

Broken Bones, Back or Head Injuries?
Slip-and-fall accidents are one of the most common sources of injury. While some accidents result in bumps and bruises, other slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls cause serious injuries. If you hit your head when you fall, you could suffer a traumatic brain injury. Broken ribs, arms, and legs are also common fall injuries. In some cases, people injure their spinal cord, back, or neck.

Slip and Fall Attorney
To recover compensation after a premises liability injury such as a slip and fall, it is best to work with an attorney. Proving liability for slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall cases can be challenging. At our Law Firm, we have considerable experience with these cases and understand what it takes to get results. As your attorney, we provide compassionate service while fighting the insurance company on your behalf. For a free consultation with a slip-and-fall injury lawyer, please call us today.

The Dangers of Unsafe Property
A slip-and-fall accident can happen on surfaces that are wet, slick, uneven, or unstable. Trip-and-falls may occur when an object is in the path of a pedestrian. This may include items such as fallen merchandise, power cords, garbage, tools, or building materials. People also trip and fall when a walking surface is broken or defective. Broken steps, ripped or bunched carpet, missing tiles, and cracked pavement are good examples of defective surfaces.

You may have encountered these problems on public or private property such as:

Theme parks
Parking lots and parking garages
Gas stations
Retail, discount, and grocery stores
Apartment complexes and homes
If the property owner’s negligence caused your injury, you may be entitled to compensation. We seek damages for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering.

How do I know if I am to blame for a slip and fall accident?
If it took place in your own home, there is no legal action you can take. If the fall occurred on property other than your own and the walkway was flawed or unsafe, you may have a case.

What if the owner of the property did not know it was unsafe?
He or she can still be held accountable for negligence if there is evidence he or she should have reasonably known about the danger.

Premises Liability Issues

Seeking Compensation for Injuries and Other Losses
Accidents that occur on another party’s property and are caused by the property owner’s negligence are called premises liability accidents. If the accident or injury was the result of inadequate security measures, it is referred to as negligent security.

Premises Liability Lawyer
Premises liability and negligent security are serious issues that can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured on another party’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering. Working with an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the process easier as you focus on recovering. For a free consultation with our premises liability attorneys, please call our Law Firm today.

Hurt on Another’s Property?
Our premises liability and negligent security practice cover a range of issues, including:

Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents
Injuries to tourists
Dangerous premises
These types of accidents can happen just about anywhere, from parking lots and gas stations to hotels, grocery stores, and homes. Whether it is private or public property, you may be able to hold the owner liable for negligence resulting in injury or wrongful death.

What if I was injured on government property?
The same laws apply to injuries that occurred on government properties as on other privately owned properties. The only exception is that there could be a statute of limitations concerning the amount of time you have to notify them of the injury and your intention to sue.

Are the laws different if I was invited to the property where I was injured?
Yes. An invitation to the property is taken into account during the court proceedings. If you were invited to the premises where you were injured, the owner may be liable for more in terms of damages.

What if the owner didn’t know his property was dangerous?
Owners can be held responsible for any dangerous condition on their land or property, whether they were aware of the danger or not. If they were unaware of a dangerous condition, they are considered negligent according to the law.

What kinds of properties are usually involved in dangerous premises cases?
There is no restriction as to the type of property. Cases have taken place involving hotels, restaurants, commercial and office buildings, private residences, government properties, or anywhere an injury has occurred excluding the victim’s own home.

We represent residents and tourists who have suffered injuries such as paralysis and brain injuries, back and neck injuries, broken bones and amputations, assault, robbery, or wrongful death from drowning. With 30 years of experience, we have handled nearly every type of injury case. You can rely on our dedication to clients and our thorough case preparation.

Motorcycle & Bicycle Accidents

Experienced Trial Lawyer Who Will Fight for You
No matter where they occur, motorcycle or bicycle accidents are almost always serious. Even when there is no collision with another vehicle, the cyclist can suffer severe or fatal injuries.

At our Law Firm, we understand that you may be seeking compensation for a seriously injured family member or because you lost someone to wrongful death. We have represented many motorcycle and bicycle accident victims and their families over the years. You can be certain that our attorneys will diligently pursue your claim and will take it to trial if that is in your best interests. To schedule a free consultation with a motorcycle accident lawyer, please call us today.

Get the Compensation You Need
Many motorcycle and bicycle accidents are the results of collisions with cars or other vehicles. With no protective steel structure surrounding them, cyclists can be severely injured by a relatively minor collision. Injuries common to these accidents may include:

Broken bones and amputations
Back injuries
Neck injuries
Brain injuries and paralysis
Burns and road rash
These injuries may result in scarring or other disfigurements, as well as temporary or permanent disability. The accident victim may need surgeries, rehabilitation, long-term care, and cosmetic procedures. Because the medical expenses will be significant, we will argue for full and fair compensation to cover your losses. When necessary, we utilize medical and economic experts to calculate the costs of current and future medical bills, lost income, and additional expenses.

DUI/DWI Accident Victims

You May Be Entitled to Additional Damages
If were injured by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, we can argue for punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. It does not matter whether the driver is convicted of DUI/DWI in criminal court. In civil court, we just need to show that the driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) near or over the legal limit.

DUI/DWI Accident Lawyer
Our Law Firm represents DUI accident victims and their families. Our experience with vehicle accidents means we are prepared to handle claims involving drunk drivers. There is no excuse for drunk driving, and we will hold the negligent driver accountable for the damage he or she causes. For a free consultation with an attorney for DUI accident victims, please call us toll-free today.

We Can Help You Fight Back
Accidents caused by drunk drivers are usually serious because their attention is not on the road and their reflexes are slowed. Drunk drivers tend to swerve into other lanes and miss traffic lights or stop signs. The result can be dangerous head-on collisions, high-speed collisions, rear-end collisions, or T-bone collisions.

The victims of these collisions often suffer severe injuries such as:

Brain injuries
Back injuries
Broken bones and amputations
In the worst cases, wrongful death is the result of an accident.

Victims of catastrophic accidents often need long-term care from specialists. They may suffer temporary or permanent disability and be unable to return to work. The cost of such accidents may be in the millions of dollars.

We fight hard for our client’s rights to recover adequate compensation to cover their losses. In addition, in DUI cases, we argue for punitive damages.

Bus Accidents

There are two types of bus accidents related to legal situations:
You were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident.
You were driving or riding in a passenger vehicle that collided with a bus.
An auto accident lawyer with our Law Firm can help in both instances.

If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, obviously the accident was not your fault. You may still deserve compensation for injuries sustained through no fault of your own. Legally, however, you must prove negligence on the part of the other parties, which can include the bus driver, the owner of the bus, and the operators of any other vehicles involved in the collision.

Negligence is a legal definition involving the comparative inattention towards a potentially dangerous situation that a reasonable, prudent person would have avoided. Proving negligence is not something easily done. That’s why you need an attorney on your side. Our Law Firm has the resources and skills necessary to investigate your bus accident-related injuries and subsequent legal claims.

If you were driving a bus or were a passenger in a vehicle that collided with a bus, you should also hire legal representation. It can be difficult to obtain compensation from a bus company after a bus accident because it’s difficult to prove who was legally responsible. The negligent party could be the bus driver, the owner of the bus company, the bus maintenance supervisor, or a combination of these people.

Frequently Asked Bus Accident Questions

Fortunately, if you enlist our Law Firm, you enlist an experienced lawyer. We will help determine who was at fault, why, and what settlement you deserve. Then we will pursue that settlement and, as with all our cases, we’re fully prepared to go to trial and win.

Boat Accidents

Injured on the Water? Your Lawyer Must Know Maritime Law.
In Texas, boating, water skiing, and swimming are popular pastimes for residents and tourists. Boating and other water sports can be extremely dangerous, however, especially if alcohol is involved. If you or a family member has been injured in a boat accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation.

Boat Accident Lawyer
At our Law Firm, we have years of experience representing injury victims and their families in marine accident claims. We understand the special maritime laws that govern boating accidents, and we have experience trying cases in federal district court. You can rely on our knowledge in this area of law. To schedule a free consultation, please call a boating accident attorney at our Law Firm.

Handling Serious Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
Boating accidents can result in severe injuries such as brain injuries and paralysis, broken bones and amputations, neck injuries, and back injuries. Passengers who are thrown from the boat in a collision or who fall overboard are at risk of drowning, especially if they are not wearing life jackets.

Accidents involving boats and other recreational watercraft can happen because of issues such as:

Running aground
Colliding with other watercraft
Lack of safety equipment on board
Operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Children operating a watercraft
Whether you were the operator or a passenger, you may be entitled to compensation if another party’s negligence caused your injury. We fight for our client’s rights to collect damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and related expenses.

Railroad & Train Accidents

It is fairly often that we read about some type of accident involving trains and the railroads. The three most common types of train accidents are:

Derailment – when the train leaves the track and damages people or property
Collision – when the train damages people or property in either a properly or improperly operating railroad crossing
Environmental – this is when a train accident results in toxic cargo solid, liquid, or airborne entering the ground or atmosphere

Due to the size and sheer weight of even a single train car, the destruction that can result from a train accident can be severe, if not deadly. In order to receive a settlement for any injuries suffered as the result of a train accident, you must prove that the responsible party was negligent.

The responsible party can be:

The actual train conductor
The owner of the train company, who is ultimately responsible for the proper maintenance and safety of the train
Some other party such as another driver, depending on the specifics of your situation
Investigating a train accident to its fullest requires someone with years of experience and a wide range of resources. Frankly, without a personal injury lawyer on your side, you don’t have much chance of getting a settlement for medical bills, damages, and injuries that is truly in your best interest.

Railroad Disasters
When railroad companies act responsibly and meet their safety obligations to passengers and the public, railroad disasters are rare. Unfortunately, as budgets are slashed by corporations and by government overseers, safety personnel may be cut back, inspections may be hurried or even eliminated, and safety suffers.

If safety suffers, hundreds of people can be killed or injured in railroad disasters. Our Law Firm can make the difference between devastation and the justice that injured victims and their families deserve.

We know the laws and safety standards that apply to railroad disaster cases.
We can provide victims of railroad disasters with the confidence that they will be treated fairly and justly because we have litigated cases similar to theirs. Our team of experts knows the laws and safety standards that apply to railroads and rail companies.

When you or your family members have been harmed in a railroad disaster, or as the result of an accident involving a vehicle and a train, we move aggressively to find the cause. We know that rail carriers sometimes neglect proper maintenance of train steps and passageways, or speed over unsafe or congested stretches of track. We know that warning systems are sometimes neglected, and that locomotives are not always properly maintained.

One of our strengths in handling railroad disaster cases is our meticulous investigation and attention to detail. For example, we investigate whether crossing guards may have malfunctioned, or if warning devices may have failed.

Each case is different, and we give each one our serious, undivided attention.

We are ready to help if you or a loved one has been involved in a railroad disaster.

If a loved one has died, or you or a family member has been injured, because of a railroad disaster, we are prepared to discuss your case and seek justice on your behalf.

Wrongful Death

Put 30 Years of Experience on Your Side During This Difficult Time
If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, you know that money cannot undo the damage that has been done. However, you also know that you and your family may be facing serious financial difficulties in the aftermath of this tragedy. Will you be able to pay funeral expenses and monthly bills?

Bringing a wrongful death claim against the negligent party is a way to secure financial compensation for your family. It is also a way to seek justice for your loved one. Holding an individual or corporation responsible for its actions may prevent the same thing from happening to another family in the future. You will still have suffered a terrible loss, but some people find comfort when their loved one’s death has an impact on safety regulations, personal responsibility, or corporate policy.

How We Can Help
The wrongful death attorneys at our Law Firm provide compassionate support to families while aggressively pursuing wrongful death claims. We take the time to get to know you so we can truly understand your family’s needs and goals. As experienced trial lawyers, we are prepared to go to trial when that is in your best interests.

Wrongful death damages may be awarded to compensate the family for financial and emotional losses such as:

Medical bills
Funeral expenses
Lost future income for dependents
Emotional distress
Depending on the specifics of the case, damages may also be awarded as a punitive measure against the negligent party.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Depending on the type of case, the following people can file wrongful death claims:

Wrongful death is described as any death that is another person’s fault. The most common cause is auto accidents, Rollover, unsafe products, unsafe premises, truck accidents, bus accidents, marine accidents, medical malpractice accidents, and railroad accidents although any other type of death is a potential wrongful death case, as well. Survivors of the deceased typically file a lawsuit in order to seek financial compensation. The amount awarded is based upon the deceased’s projected potential earnings and medical costs, as well as emotional anguish.

While someone usually files a wrongful death case in the immediate family, other people may file a lawsuit in special situations. For instance, if the litigant is under 18, a guardian ad litem is usually appointed to conduct legal matters on their behalf.

Also, stepchildren and other non-adopted children can also be awarded certain rights regarding wrongful death lawsuit filings. Much of who is allowed to file suit is dependent upon the specifics of the situation.

What sort of compensation can I receive?
It depends on the situation. Generally, the deceased’s projected future earnings are calculated and then divided proportionally by the number of dependents. The compensation varies, however, based on how the person died. Additionally, punitive damages for pain and suffering can be awarded.

What if the death occurred in a medical setting?
Wrongful death claims are still applicable.

How much does a wrongful death lawsuit cost?
Nothing. Our consultations are free, and if we take your case, you won’t pay us until it has been resolved.

Our wrongful death lawyer serves clients with free consultations! Contact our Law Firm today to set up an appointment.


Have you been injured, but are hesitant to discuss it with a personal injury lawyer because you do not have any money?

Choosing a personal injury attorney mostly isn’t as expensive as working with other sorts of lawyers. Here are many tips to remember as you interview as well as talk with accidental injuries law firms:

* Meetings Are 100 % Free. Accidental injuries lawyers do not bill you for the chance to discuss your case. You may enter, explain what went down, as well as converse the pros and cons of your situation, as well as how much the lawyer thinks your case may be worth, and just how much time it might take to get benefits.

* Law Suits Are Undertaken On Contingency. Car accident law firms will generally take your case on what is known as a contingency fee basis. You aren’t required to pay for any attorney’s charges until you recover against the party at fault or their insurance firm. When there is no recovery in your case, you do not pay any lawyer’s charges. In the event you do arrive at a settlement, the attorney then charges a share of your overall relief for attorneys fees. The exact contingency portion you will be billed differs from one location to another and from one sort of suit to another. Percentages also sometimes vary according to how much of a recovery danger the law firm thinks. If you cannot choose a law firm to take your personal damage suit on a contingency fee basis, some attorneys will pursue a lawsuit charging an hourly fee, invoiced monthly. The lawyer would be paid this amount no matter whether you are successful in collecting your damage. However, be careful that failing to find a law firm to take your damage lawsuit on a contingency charge basis is generally a sign that you do not have a very good claim. Whatever payment structure both you and your lawyer agree with, there are costs that are incurred in following a lawsuit that should be paid for.

* Getting Your Expenses Paid While You Go. Personal injury attorneys generally pay the expense of putting together your lawful claim, such as:
Copies of police records
Medical records
Office expenses such as copying
Deposition fees
Court submitting fees
Investigator fees
Expert witness fees
The lawyer pays these expenses as they crop up, after this, you reimburse the attorney for these charges from your payout. It is obviously a risk on the attorney’s part, so it is a good sign that the lawyer considers you to have a strong lawsuit. In some lawsuits in some states in America, a law firm might agree not to request you for reimbursement in case your claim does not produce a settlement. It is important in case you make an agreement with a law firm to advance expenditures which you tack down how and when the expenses will be paid back. Commonly, a lawyer’s contingency fee is dependent on the gross settlement sum, prior to charges being subtracted. It is regarded illegal in some states in America for a lawyer to advance the charges of your medical care. Nevertheless, a great personal injury attorney may be able to assist you in finding resources for short-term financial loans if you cannot borrow from buddies or relatives to pay your medical expenditures.

* When You are Not Satisfied With Your Attorney. Individual injury litigation is often slow, and if you’ve been injured you’re likely to have fiscal demands to decide the case as soon as you can. For many individuals, this means discontentment and frustration with their attorney. If you’re worried about the improvement of your case, get an appointment to talk with your lawyer, and be honest regarding the level of your annoyance. Inquire specific queries about when you might anticipate seeing results, and what the lawyer sees as the holdups in the settlement. If you are not happy with the replies you get from your law firm, there is nothing wrong with talking with another law firm for a second opinion. When you interview one more lawyer, listen very carefully to how the attorney responds to your questions regarding how he or she might deal with the case in a different way. If you choose to switch law firms, you will want the fresh law firm to contact your current attorney to make the arrangements. Your current attorney is not permitted to do anything whatsoever for transferring the case which can harm your case. The lawyers will work out the details of the record transfer, as well as manage any financial agreements that must be made. How much you’ll owe your present law firm would depend on how far you’ve advanced in your case
and how much work your current attorney has put in. In a few states, law firms are permitted by law to put a lien on your court file for the money you owe them when switching lawyers, with the lien to be paid for when the claim settles. Transparent correspondence is the key to working with your attorney. If you are interacting, your law firm will know what your anticipations are and can keep you updated in the process. Cooperating with your law firm is the simplest way to ensure that your personal injury suit will be successful.
