Accident Attorneys Will Answer Your Questions
A Houston bicycle accident lawyer will take the time to answer any questions that you may have to make it easier to pursue your case. For instance, you may be wondering how long you have to pursue a lawsuit or if you actually have to file a lawsuit at all.
In Texas, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, and no you don't have to file a lawsuit to get compensation. It may be possible to obtain a financial award through a settlement negotiated outside of court.
Other common questions may revolve around the type of compensation that you are entitled to as well as how a jury will determine your award. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be reimbursed for lost wages and lost future earnings if you are unable to return to work. You may also be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other related procedures related to your injuries.
Houston Bicycle Accident Lawyers May Gather Evidence For You
You may not know what evidence that you need to pursue your case or how to get it. The good news is that your attorney will have a good idea as to how to best present your case. This is true even if you think that you may have been partially responsible for the accident occurring in the first place.
Your attorney may be able to get a copy of the police report in your case, get a copy of witness statements made at the crash scene or interview witnesses personally. If there was a surveillance camera or some other video evidence taken at the scene of the crash, it may be possible for your attorney to get access to that evidence as well.
Once relevant evidence has been gathered and analyzed, your attorney will start working on building a case. This may include using witness statements in settlement talks to establish that you were not at fault for causing the crash. It may also include hiring expert witnesses to testify at trial to sway a jury in your favor.
Houston Bicycle Accident Attorneys Work With Your Doctors
If you are hurt, there is a good chance that you will seek medical treatment for your injuries. This may include going to see your primary care physician, going to an ER or even being scheduled for a serious surgery. In the event that you incur medical bills, your attorney may be able to work with your doctor or other relevant medical professionals to ensure that you don't have to pay until after your case is resolved.
What's the Most Favorable Outcome to My Bicycle Accident Case?
There is no way to say what the most favorable outcome in your case may be until one of our attorneys is able to take a look at it. However, you can be sure that your legal counsel will do whatever it takes to obtain the best outcome based on the facts and circumstances surrounding your accident.
In some cases, it may be best to settle as it is the easiest way to get compensated in a timely manner. However, it may be better to take your case to trial if you think that a jury is going to award more money than the party that hurt you is willing to offer.
