Solid winning evidence shows that your were injured as a direct result of the accident.

Personal injury attorneys nearly always give a free initial consultation.

The insurance industry’s own statistics indicate that once an attorney becomes involved, the value of any claim at least doubles.

Put those two facts together and it is in your best interest to retain experienced legal counsel at your earliest possible convenience.

A chiropractor may testify that your injuries are related to the collision; however, a doctor's opinion will generally carry more weight than a chiropractor. You should consult a personal injury attorney in Texas - the consultation should be free. Proper presentation of evidence is extremely important and the system is not designed to "go it alone."


I agree with Mr. Hawkins. You really should have a lawyer to assist you in this process. As for chiropactors, every jurisdiction is different and every jury is different but as a general rule you will make a greater impression on a jury if you can complement the chiropractor's testimony with that of a qualified and informed medical doctor.


Depending on the extent of your injuries and damages, a chiropractor's opinion is fine, especially in a low-impact collision with so-called 'soft tissue' injuries. I'm happy to discuss this with you.
