The Houston motorcycle accident lawyers at Terry Bryant have extensive knowledge of the procedure, evidence, and pertinent laws necessary to win your case. Call (800) 444-5000 or fill out a free initial consultation form and find out if you have a case.
STEP 2: DEMAND PACKAGE
After we have discussed your case and gathered evidence, your lawyer will send a demand package to the defendants, which includes the proposed worth of your claim. The demand package describes your accident, injuries, and damages.
STEP 3: NEGOTIATION
During this stage, your lawyer will negotiate the worth of your case with the defendants.
STEP 4: SETTLE OR PROCEED
If the defendants make an offer you are willing to accept, then your attorney will settle your case. If the defendants refuse to pay what your attorney determines is reasonable, we will file a lawsuit to pursue the damages we believe you’re owed.
STEP 5: FILE A LAWSUIT
Should your case go to trial, your attorney will file a lawsuit in court against the defendants. Once the defendants receive notice of the lawsuit, they are obligated to respond in a formal court.
STEP 6: PREPARATION
Your Texas motorcycle accident lawyer will prepare your case for court by asking questions and requesting documents to gather facts about your case. We will also take depositions or sworn statements from witnesses before a court reporter.
STEP 7: TRIAL
You and your attorney will go to court before a judge and/or jury to present your case. The defendants will also have an opportunity to present their side of the case. After each side is heard, the judge and/or jury will make a decision, called a judgment.
