While some automobile crashes can be minor and handled without an attorney (e.g. no injuries, little if any property damage), injured victims of severe accidents usually find it essential to have a car accident attorney by their side. Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis – meaning their services are paid for only when their lawyer recovers financial “damages” on their behalf. Many prospective clients are glad to hear they do not have to bear any legal costs upfront and out-of-pocket, as they would in many other types of situations involving retainers and hourly rates.
In the aftermath of a vehicle crash, injury victims and family members are filled with questions, concerns, and frustrations, many of which can be answered and eased when they consult an experienced personal injury lawyer – questions such as:
- “How do I determine who is at fault?”
- “Who is responsible for my pain and suffering?”
- “What steps I should take to recover damages from my accident?”
All these – and many more – can be answered by a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury lawyer.
Injured Victims Benefit from a Seasoned Lawyer’s Knowledge and Experience
The greatest advantage of having a lawyer represent you in a vehicle crash case is their knowledge of the laws, procedures, limitations, and “how things are done” within your city and state’s legal infrastructure. An experienced personal injury attorney can advise you when and how to file your insurance claim or lawsuit – since timing is everything. For example, if a minor is involved in the incident, there may be specific regulations regarding the case or limitations on what kind of suit can be filed. Information such as this could make or break a case, and it is helpful to know that your attorney is experienced in dealing with these kinds of details.
This familiarity with Texas’ legal system serves to give you an edge as you and your attorney work together to recover fair and full compensation for any and all financial losses related to your injury.

These tactics include using your words against you in an attempt to make you appear at fault for causing the accident; claiming that your injury is unrelated to the accident; or adjusters calling you constantly to get more information to use against you while pretending to be “looking out for your interests.”
