The Importance of Local Lawyers
You want to put your case into the best possible position to get the most compensation. For that, a local Garland car accident attorney is a clear choice. There are several reasons that staying local is a good idea. Below are just a few.
Local Lawyers Know Local Courts
Personal injury law is virtually the same across all of Texas, but local courts often have their own quirks and requirements. Since time is often a crucial factor in the viability of a car accident claim, it is best to get an attorney who already knows the court’s procedures and can navigate the system efficiently and effectively. By knowing the local institutions, our attorneys can help you get a crash report of your wreck quickly as well, which may prove to be useful evidence in your car accident injury claim.
Local Lawyers Know the Opposition
As a Garland car accident law firm, Pintas & Mullins has worked on cases in the same courts, under the watchful eyes of the same judges, against some of the same defense attorneys over the years. Local attorneys know many of the defense lawyers on a personal basis. This allows us to have an edge in pretrial negotiations, as we can offer insight into the possible strategies of those other lawyers and their willingness to settle a claim.
The Value of My Claim
In all likelihood, the value of your car accident injury claim is probably higher than you think. That is because most people view their potential compensation as being just about medical bills and car repairs. Those certainly are huge parts of the value of your claim, but you can sue for damages far above and beyond those elements. Damages are split into two main categories, as shown below.
Your medical expenses, car repairs, rental car fees, and other damages for which you receive bills with objective monetary values, are all called “economic damages.” Though there can be debate over how much is owed between you and the opposing driver, the dollar amount of these harms are much clearer than the second category.
You also can recover compensation for items that do not come with receipts or clear monetary values attached to them. These non-economic damages can include things like your physical pain, mental suffering, loss of consortium or companionship with your spouse, inability to enjoy beloved hobbies, the psychological effect of becoming disfigured, and a host of other similar ills. There is no limit to the amount you can recover for these damages, but your Garland car accident law firm may need to bring expert witnesses like accident reconstructionists or medical doctors into the case in order to argue for appropriate compensation.
Time is Ticking on My Claim
Without trying to sound alarmist, time is a very important factor in a personal injury case like a car accident. The Texas statute of limitations on personal injury claims is set at two years by Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003. This means that if you wait longer than two years after the date of your injury, you risk losing the ability to pursue compensation at all! Two years may sound like a long time, but it can go by in a flash when you and your family are recovering from your injury, juggling your schedule around multiple therapists, trying to collect evidence to support your claim, haggling with insurance agents, and all the rest of the circus that often comes with a serious car wreck.
