Critical Benefits of Having Our Lawyers On Your Side
It is a common misconception within the general public to assume that Texas law will promise them equal financial recovery for their injuries when this is actually false. They have the right to such financial compensation. But they must secure it for themselves. It’s not automatically given to them just because they show up in court.
Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Codes state only that victims in the case of an accident may seek out compensation, following specific legal guidelines. The burden of proof is on them, the plaintiff-victims. To be compensated, they must convince the jury that the defendant’s decisions can be considered the proximate cause, or reason for the injuries that they sustained. Personal injury cases can get extremely contentious. It takes a special kind of attorney to be successful in this type of law. Now a host of less than knowledgeable people is more than willing to give you “free legal advice” (which is often worth what you pay for it). You might be able to get a rudimentary understanding of personal injury law as it applies to your particular situation. But executing the proper civil action that produces the compensation you and your family need is not nearly as easy as it might appear.
You also might have a relative or friend who is a lawyer who wants to protect your best interests and represent you in a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Though we would never tell you what to do, we will say that when it comes to legal representation of any type, you might want to reconsider retaining anyone who might have a difficult time emotionally disassociating him or herself from your case. Personal injury law is quite intense and these kinds of attorneys must be pragmatic, focus solely on the facts of a case, and be cool under fire in order to succeed in winning your case. What happens if that friend or relative attorney doesn’t win the case, or accepts a less-than-fair settlement and leaves even more on the table due to inexperience, or thinking more with their heart than their head? How will you feel about your friend or relative then? Very rare is the case where family members or friends belong in your legal business.
