You could be entitled to compensation after an accident in Dallas. But, how much money is your personal injury case worth? You better believe that insurance companies and at-fault parties will go to great lengths to make sure that your case is valued for as little as humanly possible. It can be hard to challenge their findings and assertions if you try to represent yourself.
When you call Stephens Law Firm, PLLC, you can benefit from a thorough investigation into your accident, aided by some of the most reputable experts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As your personal injury lawyer, Jason Stephens will tap into the firm’s vast resources and bring in whoever he thinks might be able to help him understand your case better.
This might include medical professionals, forensic experts, vocational rehabilitation professionals, mental health authorities, and economists. Jason Stephens will have them explain your injuries and help him project your past, present, and future costs. He’ll use this expert evidence to leverage a meaningful settlement or award for you.
No one will raise their hand and accept responsibility for your injuries. Everyone will point fingers. They’ll even try to blame you – whether or not you had anything to do with your accident. These types of claims, left unchecked, can really hurt your ability to secure a financial award. In fact, they could even prevent you from getting any money, at all.
That’s because, under Texas’s comparative negligence rules, your ability to recover compensation is directly linked to your role in an accident. Your financial award will be reduced by the degree of fault allocated to you. If you’re assigned more than 51 percent of the blame, you’ll be prohibited from recovering any monetary damages.
Attorney Jason Stephens has been representing clients in personal injury matters in Dallas for decades. He’s all too familiar with these tactics. He also knows how to counter these claims and protect his clients. When you’re blamed, Stephens Law will gather evidence to disprove allegations of fault and attempt to shift blame to other parties. Jason’s goal is to minimize your role in the accident so that your financial award is secure.
Insurance tends to be the first source of compensation after an accident. So, most personal injury cases involve an insurance company (or two) at some point in time. These insurance providers would rather keep things between the two of you. They don’t want you to get an attorney involved. They would much rather deal directly with an accident victim who has little-to-no experience navigating the claims process. In doing so, bad faith tactics can fly under the radar.
Insurance companies know that things will change the moment you bring an attorney into the equation. They know that they’ll have to toe the line and give your claim the consideration it deserves. Call Stephens Law Firm, PLLC and let Jason Stephens level the playing field.
