    If you try to handle this yourself, you will likely get less than you would with an attorney, even after fees. They may try various tactics to reduce what they pay you, and a good attorney will not let that happen. They may even say it was part your fault or that your back condition pre-existed before the collision. You should get a board certified personal injury lawyer, which is a certification that is done by the state of Texas. Trucks have very specific regulations, and how much you...

    You are being screwed with. Get a lawyer and show the insurance company whose boss. A lawyer will handle the case for a percent, and you will get help.

    You should get counsel in the state where the wrong conduct happened. That sounds like CA if I understand what you are saying.

    Your injuries are far too severe for you to try and handle this on your own. Starbucks may want you to think that they are going to be fair, but you must not trust them. DO NOT TALK TO THEN OR GIVE THEM A STATEMENT until you talk to an attorney. They will use what you say against you later. They know all the tricks and you don't. See an attorney who is a board certified personal injury specialist. You will be able to have a free first appointment. Look at my profile on AVVO if you do not...

    There are no set percentages in Texas. You go by how much each was damaged by the death. You must get an attorney to go over the elements of damage that are allowed in a wrongful death case. And I might add that if you do not have an attorney, you are going to get low balled on any settlement. If you do have an attorney the attorney should be able to explain the details to you.

    One thing you can do is get the notes and give them to them. As for what you can do to make them give an offer, there is not much you can do without an attorney. They can just keep running you in circles until the limitations period runs, you give up, or you hire a new lawyer.

    Small claims court, called JP court, has a maximum of $10,000. You have to go to district or county court and for that you need a lawyer. Also, you may be asking for more than policy limits. There are plenty of good board certified personal injury lawyers in Dallas. You will end up better off by hiring one on a percentage basis.

    Why on earth are you not getting an attorney? The insurance company will ignore you see if you let the 2 year limitations period run or make you a low ball offer. You will eventually need an attorney, don't wait until it is too late. Many lawyer, me included, won't take a case that has les than six months before the limitations period. So get help as soon as you can.
