3 Questions to Ask When Hiring an Injury Attorney in McAllen 

If you’re frustrated after an accident we can help. Tens of thousands of injury claims get denied per year. Now, most of those claims are probably fraudulent. In fact, according to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, we lose over $80 Billion dollars per year on fake injury claims. This is a big reason why insurance companies over-analyze injury claims nowadays. Sadly, this means that thousands of legitimate injury claims may also get denied. We published an article recently identifying ways insurance companies try to wiggle out of paying claims. The point is this, after an injury, it may be beneficial to retain a personal injury lawyer. In our opinion, there are really 3 questions to ask when hiring an injury attorney in McAllen. Here they are, and if you need assistance right away, call us at (956) 777-7777.

Do I Have a Potential Injury Claim? 

First and foremost, be blunt with a potential attorney. It’s always good, to be honest, and forthcoming. Ask the attorney if they believe you have a legitimate injury claim to submit. Each state tends to have variances in their laws and rules within regards to injury claims. The state of Texas is no different, and there are statutory rules and liability elements that must be considered by an injury attorney. This is one reason why Mr. Tijerina always provides a free personal injury consultation. Our law firm needs to analyze your situation. This way we can determine if you have a potential claim.

How Much Money Have You Won For Accident Victims? 

It’s important to be brutally honest with a potential attorney. Look, after you sustain an injury you need money. Medical expenses, auto repair bills, and the cost of living ad up quickly. If you’re too hurt to work you may also need to account for lost wages. Injury lawsuits can climb into the high six and seven-figure range. When you’re using an insurance company for hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars you may want to hire an attorney who’s handled those types of large settlements before. We’ve won millions for our clients.

What Attorney Awards Have You Won?

Mr. Tijerina has over 90 perfect five-star client testimonials, and it may be why you’ve come to our website. However, this article is identifying 3 questions to ask when hiring an injury attorney in McAllen, so this is after you’ve located a lawyer. Reviews are great, but we believe attorney awards are better. See, in order to win an award from some of the prestigious legal organizations, you need to be reviewed by fellow attorneys.
