Who Should Hire a Lawyer?
You may never have hired a lawyer before. You may wonder "What can an attorney do for me? Do I even need a lawyer?" Hiring a lawyer will help if you:
- Were hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else
- Do not have health insurance and cannot afford to get treatment for your injuries
- Have never dealt with an injury claim before and don't know where to start
- Tried to resolve your claim yourself but had trouble with the insurance adjuster
- Have received an unfair settlement offer from the insurance company
- Want professional help to make sure you get all the compensation you deserve
If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, you will benefit from having a personal injury attorney handling your case. Why? To be compensated for your damages after an accident, you must convince the other side's insurance company to pay you money for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, damaged car, and pain and suffering. However, the insurance adjuster is not your friend. They are trained to pay you as little money as possible to resolve your claim. Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums, not by paying claims.
You can level the playing field by having a lawyer on your side. Here at the Todd Law Firm, we have been winning money for hurt accident victims in the Austin, San Antonio and central Texas since 1989. We know exactly how to set up your case and avoid the mistakes often made by "do it yourself-ers". We handle everything for you so you can focus on getting better.
What Our Personal Injury Law Firm Can Do For You
When a personal injury accident victim contacts us, it's often because they are frustrated and "fed up" with the insurance company and their adjuster. They did not know how hard making a claim would be, especially when insurance adjusters refuse to call you back, "lose" your paperwork or create unfair excuses to deny your claim. Many insurance companies have a policy of denying everything, especially if you are not represented by an attorney.
We Fight the Insurance Company For You
Insurance adjusters may ignore you and hope you will either go away or accept a ridiculous settlement offer. However, once you are represented by us, they no longer can ignore you. Often the simple act of hiring a personal injury attorney is enough to force the insurer to take the case seriously. Studies show that injury victims who are represented receive significantly better compensation than those who are not represented, even after the attorney is compensated.
We Prove the Other Person Was At Fault
Knowing the other side caused an accident is not the same as proving it. We have years of experience in building your case and proving the other person's negligence. We know what information and documents to gather to give you the best chance to either settle your case or win in court.
We Investigate Your Accident Immediately
Delay is your biggest enemy in proving your claim after an accident. Witnesses forget or become hard to locate. Photographs, videos and documents become hard to find or are "lost", either by accident or intentionally. This is why our priority is to investigate your case and gather all the necessary evidence as soon as your hire us.
We Fight to Win You the Compensation You Deserve
Under Texas law, when you are hurt in an accident that was someone else's fault, you are entitled to compensation for physical injuries, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and pain and suffering. At the Todd Law Firm, our job is to help you get the compensation you deserve.
How Does It Work?
Schedule Your Free Consultation
The first step is to contact us for a free consultation with our firm. We listen to you and get the complete story of what happened. We then help you set up a plan to get the medical care you need. We then gather all the evidence needed to prove liability for the accident and the physical injuries and financial losses you have suffered.
You Pay Nothing Upfront
If you hire us you pay no up-front costs. We work for you on a contingency basis. This means that, once the case is complete and you are satisfied with the results, we receive a percentage of the money we have won for you. All the details are spelled out in our written representation agreement before you hire us. We also show you exactly what happens to every penny of any proposed settlement before you agree to accept it. That way, since you know there will be no surprises, you can relax and focus on healing.
We Can Help You Arrange Medical Care
After an accident, you need to receive the best care possible in order to heal quickly and completely, even if you do not have health insurance. We can help set you up with a network of doctors that have agreed to treat your injuries and to wait to be paid until we have resolved your case.
We Handle Everything and Keep You Informed
We are always available to answer questions. We will keep you updated on the status of your case. We will also check to see how your treatment is progressing. We handle the paperwork and case preparation so you can focus on getting better.
Once You're Healed, We Fight the Insurance Company
Once you have fully recovered from the accident, we gather all your medical bills and treatment records. We add these to the photographs, police reports, witness statements and other evidence we have gathered. We then send all this information to the insurance company and demand a fair settlement. Attorney David Todd has been negotiating with insurance adjusters since 1989. He knows all the insurer tricks and how to deal with them, and he will advise you on what is a reasonable offer. After negotiations, if the insurance company is not offering you fair compensation, we will file a lawsuit.
Filing a Lawsuit
When the insurance company is being unreasonable, we are not afraid to litigate your case. Insurance companies know which attorneys are willing to go to court to fight for accident victims and that affects your chances of being treated fairly. We have won millions of dollars for our clients and know how to bring justice to hurt accident victims.
