Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive regarding personal injury matters. We are happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Call us at 210-BRING-IT (210-274-6448) to schedule a free consultation.
First of all, it’s a great decision to use the services of an attorney to assist you in dealing with the insurance companies and adjusters. That makes a big difference in your case (and the settlement amount you will be offered)!
What attorney should you hire? The choices may seem endless. Every day as you drive down the highway and most streets you see countless billboards for personal injury attorneys. Clearly, you have a choice in who to hire. Does it really make a difference?
IT DOES! It makes a HUGE difference.
Any attorney you hire needs to have the experience to deal with your case and the strong and ethical reputation to be able to negotiate the best settlement for you (or if necessary, to file a lawsuit against the insurance companies). If you’re dealing with an attorney that does NOT have much experience in personal injury, the insurance adjusters will not make a fair settlement offer. If you’re NOT dealing with an experienced personal injury attorney, the attorney will likely accept the unfair settlement offer because, either: (1) they don’t know any better, and want to settle the case quickly to get paid, or (2) they’re not skilled trial attorneys with the experience to litigate your case or with the money to cover the costs of litigation, until settlement of the case.
Additionally, reputation MATTERS! Some attorneys, particularly in the personal injury area of the law, have a bad (or unethical) reputation with the insurance companies (and the adjusters with whom they will be negotiating on your behalf). This leads to lower offers from the insurance companies because they may not trust the evidence submitted by the attorney or because they know that the attorney is not very good at what he / she does, and that the attorney is willing to take lower settlement offers.
The moral of the story is – choosing the attorney to represent you is a big decision! DO YOUR RESEARCH. Make sure you hire a reputable attorney with the experience to get you the compensation you deserve. The attorney you choose CAN make the difference BETWEEN leaving you with mounting medical bills and no money to pay for them, OR paying off all your medical bills, plus a fair amount of money in your pocket to cover any future medical expenses and to reimburse you for the pain and suffering you’ve endured through the entire ordeal.
Where do you start your research? Visit the State Bar of Texas website at: https://www.texasbar.com/
On the home page you will see the Find a Lawyer feature. Type in the name of the first and last name of the attorney, and law firm (if you know it), you are considering hiring. The profile for that Texas-licensed attorney should appear.
Information that appears on each attorney’s profile includes:
Law school and year graduated
Public disciplinary history for Texas and other states
The website states that Texas disciplinary sanctions within the last 10 years are shown. For sanction or disciplinary information beyond 10 years, you need to contact the Office of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel: (877) 953-5555.
IF the attorney you’re considering is not listed in this directory, then that means that either the attorney is NOT a licensed attorney in Texas with the authority to represent you, or the attorney has lost his/her license to practice law in the state of Texas. Either case, move on to someone else….
Because each personal injury case is unique, it is difficult to determine how long a case will take to resolve. Depending on the facts of each case and the injuries involved, a case may settle in a few months without the need to file a lawsuit, while others can take years for the trial and appeals process to complete. Rest assured however, that the attorneys at Peláez Law Firm will work diligently to resolve your case as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Pictures of the damage to your vehicle can be very useful in evidencing the seriousness of the accident. Pictures can sometimes be the difference between obtaining a good settlement from the insurance company, and being forced to litigate.
After being in a car accident, you should:
While you can handle the case without an attorney, the insurance companies are not looking out for your best interest. They are interested in settling the claim as soon as possible, for as little money as possible – often not even enough to cover medical bills.
Also, it may take months before you feel the full extent of your injuries. By resolving the case soon after the accident the insurance company is trying to reduce your chance to recover additional damages and want to avoid paying if you’ve suffered a permanent injury.
As soon as a claim is filed with the insurance company, they immediately assign the matter to an attorney and a claims adjuster who’s sole purpose is to settle the claim quickly. Without an experienced personal injury attorney on your side, you are at the mercy of the insurance company’s decision as to how much you deserve. At Peláez Law Firm, we will make sure that you get the medical attention you need and that you get the settlement you deserve. WE BRING IT!!
No. Remember that the insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. They are interested in settling the claim for as little money as possible. Anything you say may be used against you. The Peláez Law Firm recommends that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney for advice before giving any recorded statements to the insurance companies.
In Texas, insurance companies offer uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This type of coverage protects any personal injury you may sustain as a result of another person’s negligence with insufficient insurance to cover the cost. If you carry uninsured/underinsured coverage, the claim would be against your own insurance provider, instead of the other driver’s. Even in cases against your own insurance provider, the insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. Call the Peláez Law Firm to represent you.
Most personal injury attorneys, including the attorneys at Peláez Law Firm, work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorneys will not get paid for their services until they get money for their clients.
At Peláez Law Firm, we pride ourselves on being accessible and providing personal service to our clients. We truly believe that communication between a client and his or her attorney is essential to providing quality representation. Our clients expect a great deal from our law firm.
Potential clients can also expect that their case will be handled with the appropriate attention and professionalism. Our staff of experienced attorneys and paralegals take the time to organize details of each case no matter how big or small.
You should bring all the documents in your possession that are related to your injury. For example, for car accidents, you should bring copies of medical records for treatment related to the accident, a copy of the police or incident report, any copies of tickets issued, a copy of your automobile insurance card, any and all photographs of your vehicle, the location where the accident occured, your injuries and any other photographs relating to your case, any correspondence from the insurance companies, estimates and repair records of your car, receipts for towing and car rental, and any wage loss information. The attorney you meet with will make copies of the documents you bring her and return the originals to you.
We are so grateful to Pelaez Law Firm for fighting against injustice and winning!
The attorneys at Pelaez Law Firm provided us with extraordinary service! We consider them a part of our family now.
The Peláez Law Firm was great to work with!! After my family and I had been hurt in an accident, the medical costs started mounting. I knew I needed help so I called the Peláez Law Firm and set up an appointment. The attorneys were so understanding and really took the time to listen to me and my family. They made sure we got the medical attention we needed and demanded the insurance company cover the costs and damages caused to us in the accident. Throughout the whole process, I felt I was protected and that the attorneys were really working to help me and my family. They were always available to answer my questions and provided me with constant updates regarding my case. I really felt like I was part of the team. Most importantly, they got me and my family the peace of mind and financial stability we needed to deal with the pain and suffering resulting from our terrible car accident.
From the moment I met her, I knew Marisa was the right person to represent me against the insurance company. She took the time to listen to me and really understand the facts of my case. Although the insurance company first tried to deny my claim, Marisa and her team at Pelaez Law Firm never gave up. They fought hard and got me way more than I thought I could get. Thank you, Marisa and Pelaez Law Firm!
I went to Pelaez Law Firm after I was severely burned with hot coffee at a restaurant’s drive thru window. I didn’t know if there was anything I could do but I thought an attorney might be able to help. Lucky for me, I went to the right place – Pelaez Law Firm. Juanita Pelaez was so caring and understanding and offered to get me the help that the restaurant should have given me. Because of Juanita and her team, I got compensated for my pain and suffering and am able to rest knowing that this won’t happen again to someone else. Thank you for fighting for me and all of your clients!
