    I'm sorry to hear about your accident. I've got two young girls (2 and 10 months) and would have serious concerns about them seeing a chiropractor (and I have nothing against chicorpractors.) As far as your main question, I would tell you unequivocally to hire a lawyer. I'd avoid the ones on TV, but a good personal injury lawyer will be worth it, no question. I have personally seen this play out time and time again in my practice. I'd be happy to visit with you for free about the...

    Attempting to handle a personal injury case on your own is equivalent to trying to provide your own medical treatment. It might work, but chances are extremely high it will fall short. I think failing to hire a personal injury lawyer for this case, whether it is me or someone else, is a grave mistake that will likely leave tens of thousands of dollars on the table, if not botch it outright. This is in no way being critical of you, but simply my opinion based on almost 2 decades of...

    Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your bike wreck. It is tough for bikers on the road. I am a Harley owner myself and know full well the dangers you face. Feel free to give me a call. I'd be happy to help you. It doesn't bother me in the slightest that the person who caused this is an attorney. In fact, there is a good chance he has a more sizeable insurance policy than many other drivers, which is incredibly important in light of the seriousness of your injuries. I'd be happy to personally...

    Hi Little Elm resident. I recently handled a case with what sounds like very, very similar facts (except my client's son was riding a bike, not a skateboard.). The insurance company for the driver originally denied the case and we convinced them to pay out the policy limits on the case in a relatively short time frame. I'd like to know more facts, but would welcome your telephone call. We will discuss your options with you for free, and you can then decide whether to hire us or choose...

    A lawyer will help you recover far more for your bodily injury case than you can recover yourself. It is really that simple.

    I'm so sorry to hear what happened. I'm assuming the docs told you to get bed rest. Call your OB/GYN if you haven't already and do so immediately. From a legal perspective, call a personal injury lawyer. Don't talk to anyone from Wal-Mart or their claims handling company from this point forward.

    Hi. There's some good news and bad news here. First, the bad news. Cab companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. I would always recommend hiring a lawyer in a personal injury case, but in your situation it is an absolute must. The good news is that there is no cap on damages in a case like this. Above all else, hire a reputable personal injury lawyer. Let us know if we can help.

    I am terribly sorry to hear about your situation. The good news for you is that there is no pain and suffering cap in Texas related to an auto accident. If you take nothing from this site, I at least hope you'll take this piece of advice: hire an attorney whether it is my firm or another one. Failing to do so could cost you tens of thousands of dollars. Plus, having an attorney on your case will take the stress, anxiety and guessing out of it for you. You deserve to have someone who...
