Why hire a personal injury attorney?
Hiring a sophisticated truck accident attorney significantly advantages you in negotiating with insurance companies. In fact, many insurance companies quickly extend low offers or entirely deny liability hoping that you will take the offer or entirely dismiss any recovery before and without consulting an attorney. Hiring an experienced attorney demonstrates that you mean business. DLF strives to maximize existing offers, reverse denials of liability, and ensure you leave happy with the resolution of your case.
How much do you charge?
Diab Law Firm charges nothing up front, and you will owe nothing unless the Firm wins your case. DLF will advance all costs, even the cost of litigation, so you will never go out-of-pocket for your case.
What can I recover in my personal injury claim?
A skilled attorney will construct a damage model for your case and can help you recover the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
Call to discuss your individualized damage model. The consultation will be free.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
It depends. The length of a case turns on many factors, such as the facts of the accident, the insurance companies involved, the extent of injuries, whether litigation is required, and many other factors.
Do I have a case?
You might. The viability of each case depends on factors too numerous to list here. Please call for a free, no-obligation case assessment.
The insurance company is denying my claim. Can you still help?
Very possibly so. The expertise of an attorney with knowledge of the industry and of our justice system can easily turn the tides in your favor. Call to see if we can turn your claim denial into another successful case.
I did not feel pain at the accident scene, but I feel pain now. Is this normal?
Yes, this is normal. The pain associated with car accidents commonly does not begin until later that evening, the day after the accident, or even multiple days after the accident. This delayed onset makes prompt treatment imperative.
I did not call the police at the accident scene. Do I still have a case?
You might. Calling the police at the accident scene can be helpful because it prompts the dispatched officer to write a crash report. While crash reports constitute useful documentation of the accident and may help resolve a case, the lack of a crash report does not necessarily doom your case. Call to see if DLF can succeed in your case even without a crash report.
There is a mistake on the crash report or the crash report faults me instead of the other driver. Do I still have a case?
Though not usually helpful, mistakes on crash reports do not necessarily doom your case. A sophisticated attorney can help you overcome crash report errors, as we have done for our clients.
Will my case go to court?
Probably not. DLF strives to resolve cases as early as possible to minimize expenses and help clients quickly. Though the Firm prepares every case for the possibility of trial, most cases, even those that require some litigation, do not proceed to trial.
Should I return to work?
This question invokes both legal and medical issues. Under Texas law, a claimant generally bears a duty to mitigate damages. In other words, you probably should return to work if you can. However, if your doctor issues instructions limiting your motions at work or prohibiting you from working altogether due to medical necessity, your duty to mitigate under the law does not obligate you to continue working in the same way or at all, respectively. Always request your doctor’s instructions in writing.
