Why hire a personal injury attorney?
Hiring a sophisticated attorney significantly advantages you in negotiating with your employer and its insurer. In fact, many employers and 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, and Diab Law Firm will strive to maximize existing offers and reverse denials of liability.
How much do you charge?
Diab Law Firm charges nothing up-front, and you will pay 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, if applicable
- Pain and suffering
- Cost of lifestyle changes
Call to discuss your individualized damage model. The consultation is 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 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 and/or my employer is denying my claim and/or involvement in the accident. 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 Diab Law Firm 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?
Delayed onset of pain may occur depending on the type of injury suffered. Pain associated with some back or neck injuries may not begin immediately. This delayed onset makes prompt treatment imperative.
I did not create an accident or incident report after my accident. Do I still have a case?
You might. While accident reports constitute useful documentation of the accident and may help resolve a case, the lack of an accident report does not necessarily doom your case. Call to see if Diab Law Firm can turn your situation into another successful case.
There is a mistake on the accident or incident report. Do I still have a case?
Though not usually helpful, mistakes on accident or incident reports do not necessarily doom your case. A sophisticated attorney can help you overcome such errors. Diab Law Firm can help you overcome these hurdles. Call to see if DLF can resolve your case despite an erroneous accident or incident report.
Will my case go to court?
Probably not. Diab Law Firm strives to resolve cases as early as possible to minimize expenses and help clients quickly. Though Diab Law 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 due to medical necessity issues instructions limiting your motions at work or prohibiting you from working altogether, your duty to mitigate under the law does not obligate you to continue working in the same capacity or at all, respectively. Always request your doctor’s instructions in writing.
