How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help?
Accident-related injuries can be overwhelming. You are suddenly faced with mounting medical bills, lost wages, and filing the necessary paperwork to seek reimbursement. You may be confused and angry as you’re struggling with unfamiliar processes with insurance companies.
If the accident was not your fault, you might be entitled to compensation to help cover some of your costs. We understand that no money could compensate for your injuries, but compensation can pay medical bills and compensate for lost wages.
After an accident that someone else caused, the at-fault party’s insurance company may send an insurance adjuster to talk with you. Their job is to gather evidence that disproves your claim. It is in your best interest not to speak to an adjuster until you have legal representation present.
Your Garland personal injury attorney can help you with your insurance claim and prevent you from inadvertently saying something negatively affecting your case. Insurance companies have experienced attorneys and skilled adjusters working for them. You should, too.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
