Top 5 Reasons to Hire a McAllen Personal Injury Lawyer
As we discussed above, recent numbers from the FBI show a drop in crime in McAllen. That’s a good thing. We all hope that the numbers translate to safer communities. However, it doesn’t mean that accidents won’t happen. McAllen has been plagued over the last few years with multiple catastrophic accidents caused by high-speed police chases. Even if we see a drop in those types of crashes it won’t reduce accidents caused by driver error or carless activities such as drunk driving. When you get hurt, hiring an accident attorney might be your best chance of getting a positive settlement. Here are our Top 5 reasons to hire a McAllen Personal Injury lawyer.
Dealing with Big Insurance Companies
Insurance firms are financial institutions. They make money by collecting payments and then investing those funds into the market. This is how they make billions of dollars a year in profits. Insurance companies lose money when they pay out on injury claims. So, what does this mean to you and why is this a reason you may want to hire an injury attorney? Simple, dealing with big insurance companies is a pain. However, we know how to take them on. In fact, over the last 18 years, we’ve won millions of dollars for accident victims in McAllen, TX.
Dealing with Denied Personal Injury Claims
As we just mentioned, insurance companies make it tough to get compensated after an accident. When you file an injury claim you’re asking for money. Insurance companies hire lawyers and adjuster to underwrite and review injury claims. They do this because there has been so much fraud in the industry. In fact, in 2018 a respected McAllen medical doctor was arrested for insurance fraud. According to the FBI and the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, American taxpayers lose billions each year due to insurance fraud schemes. This means that injury claims get over-analyzed, scrutinized, and too often, denied.
However, you have resources to help you submit your claim correctly. You can hire a McAllen Personal Injury Lawyer. An injury attorney like Humberto Tijerina knows how to prepare and build your case. By gathering evidence and documentation supporting your injuries Mr. Tijerina can fight an insurance company if they try to deny your claim. When you’re hurt, and you are trying to recover, the last thing you want to deal with is headaches from an insurance company. Let us fight for you and your financial rights.
Dealing with Complex Injury Lawsuits
Some injury claims are “cut and dry” and fly right through submission. Others are more complicated and get scrutinized by insurance adjusters. Dealing with complex injury lawsuits is what we do best, and it’s a big reason to hire an injury attorney. So, what’s an example of a complex injury claim? Yesterday NBC published an article about a McAllen Firefighter who has been hospitalized due to severe burns while fighting a fire. This could end up going down the worker's compensation route, or it may have to go through the personal injury lawsuit route if the victim isn’t offered enough money in the settlement.
Sounds confusing? That’s because it is. See, insurance companies are notorious for offering low ball settlement offers. In addition, insurance companies put up a lot of red tapes hoping to “tire out” an injury victims’ efforts to get paid. We know how to take on complex injury lawsuits and how to get you paid, even when your injury claim is complicated.
Dealing with Underinsured Motorists
In the state of Texas, each driver is required to carry automobile liability insurance. In essence, this means that the state forces anyone who wants to drive to carry a minimum amount of insurance in case of a crash. The liability end of it means that this is to protect someone they hit. Unfortunately, the amount of money required for a driver to carry isn’t much. So, what does this mean? Well, for starters you could be stuck holding the tab with your repair bills and medical costs. See, if the insurance policy isn’t high enough in dollar value then you would be stuck paying the difference. This is where we come in. Dealing with underinsured motorists is one of our specialties.
Dealing with Wrongful Death Claims
Too often car crash and trucking accident case fatalities. However, vehicle accidents are not the only type of catastrophic injury cases we represent. After the loss of a loved one, you and your family will need time to heal. While you’re recovering and attempting to cope, the last thing you want to deal with is fighting an insurance company or dealing with paperwork. Unfortunately, there are time limits, and legal steps must be taken promptly. Dealing with wrongful death claims is extremely difficult. We know how to handle these types of delicate lawsuits.
