Why Hire A Personal Injury Attorney

Sep 24, 2019 | Car Accidents, Industrial Accident, Motorcycle Accident, Personal Injury

A personal Injury Attorney can be critical to have on your side, whenever you have been injured due to the negligence of an individual or corporation. The Walker Law Firm has too often seen individuals attempt to handle their own cases. However, this self-approach often fails to recover what the injured party is entitled to for several distinct reasons. One reason is that if you handle your own injury claim an insurance carrier will usually start off offering you a minimal amount of money to go away. These offers are often called “nuisance value” offers.  The injured party generally doesn’t know what he or she could attain to and will accept the nuisance offer. There are studies that show a claimant represented by legal counsel will ‘net’ over three times more money versus handling their own claim.

Insurance Claims

You can send the auto insurance carrier countless letters. You can demand a settlement. However, such communications will fall on deaf ears. Why you ask. Well, it is because the insurance company knows that a non-lawyer lacks the ability to handle their own lawsuit. Thus, the carrier has nothing to fear as their policyholder will have no alternative but to eventually accept the nuisance value offer. Unless they hire a personal injury attorney, which unfortunately many don’t.


Walker Texas Lawyer has handled over 25,000 personal injury claims. He has handled car accident injuries, motorcycle accident injuries, industrial accidents and more. Our firm has successfully disputed liability claims involving matters from minor to moderate injuries, as well as, catastrophic injury claims. There is no substitute for experience. Please note that every insurance carrier handles claims in a different manner. Thus, without having dealt with insurance carriers or adjusters, you will lack the knowledge of how to negotiate with them.


Our firm is respected by insurance carriers because they know if a fair settlement is not obtained we are not afraid to litigate your claim against them. We have tried many cases before a jury. As a result, we often obtain much better offers from insurance carriers than law firms that always seek to settle insurance claims rather than litigate personal injury claims when needed.

Walker Texas Lawyer – Personal Injury Attorney

During our initial free consultation with a client, Walker Texas Lawyer will utilize due diligence to understand your case. This consultation will include looking at all aspects of your accident and injuries, as well as visiting with medical providers if needed. The goal here is to show that your injuries did not pre-exist before the accident. Remember, insurance companies are not your friend when you really need them. Their lawyers take the “you are guilty until proven innocent” approach to all cases. This is why we work to secure previous medical records to show that your injuries are not the result of a pre-existing condition. We strive to know everything about our clients that might impact their case. This helps us to better fight the insurance companies on your behalf. We do our best to avoid you and us being surprises by what an insurance company might uncover. Surprises usually result in lower settlements and jury awards.


At Walker Texas Lawyer, we work with a team of experts to understand liability, causation, and future and present damages. This is necessary to recover all the damages we car for our clients. It is imperative that as your lawyers, we are as diligent as possible in order to provide you with an honest evaluation of your case.
