Have you been involved in a car accident? Do you feel you’re not getting the compensation you believe you deserve from the insurance company or other involved parties? If this sounds like a familiar tune, give a Houston lawyer a call right away.
After an accident, it isn’t unusual to feel unsure of what comes next, especially when the accident has resulted in severe injury or death. Dealing with an insurance company during the healing process is the last thing you want to do. Claims that take weeks, months, and, yes, in some cases, years to complete can delay the healing process and make it difficult for accident victims to move forward.
Hiring an attorney to assist you with insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits is not a drastic measure. It’s something that everyone involved in serious accidents should consider because your attorney will fight for your rights and always have your best interest at heart.

Referrals can come from family and friends who have been in similar situations. You may also find lawyer referrals by contacting the state bar association.
Interview the Attorney
Don’t hire an attorney without interviewing him or her first. Reputable attorneys offer free consultations as a way for everyone to get to know each other and to determine the parameters of the case. More likely than not, you’ll be working with your attorney for several weeks. The interview process gives you an idea of their communication style and whether or not your personalities are a good match to work together.
Ask for a Contract
Once you’ve hired a Houston Lawyer, make sure everything you discuss is put in writing, especially the negotiated fees. The last thing you want is to find out you can’t afford your lawyer halfway through the legal process.
