    The one that cares to listen; cares to explain matters to you; knows his/her client's case by heart; treats you like a person and not a lottery ticket; willing to try cases but does a great job settling your case before trial; one that you trust. I personally would go with a medium size firm not a big firm. As my colleagues mentioned you want someone experienced handling personal injury cases. I would not fall for the one with cheaper rates. Remember the more the attorney gets for you the...

    If you are involved in a car collision, the party at fault, meaning the party whose wrongful action has caused the collision is responsible. The condition of fault is not based on your DL, insurance, or the vehicle you are driving. The insurance companies deal with claims everyday therefore, they are skilled at convincing the injured party that they might get in trouble for this. The proper actions to take at this point: Create a journal To your attorney and start writing what you...

    First and most important, I suggest you and your daughter continue seeking the necessary medical attention. Take pictures of all your bruises if any. Try to obtain a copy of the Police report. Look for a personal injury attorney in the area that you live in. (Most attorneys have free consultation and they will be glad to assist you and provide you with your options.) I suggest limiting your conversations with both insurance companies until you have consulted with an attorney. It is...

    2 years from when the time that the injury occurred. There seems to be a lot of unknown factors with your case. I would consult with an attorney privately before pursuing any legal actions.

    As Mr. Lenahan indicated you are better off if you hire an attorney. PIP coverage is regulated in the Texas Insurance Code, Sections 1952.151 thru 1952.161. When you are collecting PIP and there are other parties involved, you may not receive full compensation as insurance companies will try to reduce the PIP amount from the final Settlement. PIP benefits are payable without regard to the fault of a person seeking coverage. PIP is payable without regards to whether or not there is...

    I agree with Mr. Oakley, the cost pursuing a Medical Malpractice claim is really high. Therefore, the damages have to be extremely high to cover the cost, the attorney fees and compensate you for your pain and suffering. I suggest you gather all your documents: medical records, if you consult with other doctors keep track of all their bills, if any corrections need to be made or further treatments are needed keep track of them as well. Keep track of the lost time at work. Gather all your...
