Should I Get an Attorney After a Car Accident

If your car wreck involved any of the following, it is imperative you call your auto accident attorney immediately:
• Even if just more than one person was involved in the car wreck, it is highly recommended to call an attorney to be safe.
• If one or more persons sustained an injury.
• If anyone involved was uninsured.
It is within your rights to represent yourself in such a car wreck, minor or not, but not recommended. These insurance companies spend millions of dollars on their litigation teams and they know how to push you around and get what they want.

How To Handle a Car Wreck Case in Texas
Your car wreck lawyer will know exactly how to handle your case. Every case is different, therefore the process is going to be a bit different. After the incident and after you seek medical attention (recommended to not move forward without doing so) the Law Office of Jeff S. Hoover will call the insurance companies involved and and open a claim. Now, the investigation. We will obtain all necessary documentation, including police reports, medical records and anything else needed to prove your case. The next part can take some time, depending on the injuries sustained from the car wreck. Your injuries need to be fully assessed before the case can move forward, meaning we need to know if your injuries are permanent or how extensive your permanent injuries are. Once your injuries have been assessed, it’s time to start the negotiating. Most cases end here with negotiation and don’t go to trial. However, if an agreement can’t be met, a lawsuit will have to be filed. Once the insurance company accepts our demand for settlement, it’s time to get paid. Your medical bills and any other bills accrued during this period will be paid off. Including your attorney fee, everything will be taken out of the lump sum received from the insurance company
