Personal Injury law can be complex, stressful, and arduous. Often, the incidents that give rise to these matters are traumatic situations that create financial stressors and can change a person’s life forever. While you can attempt to handle a personal injury claim on your own, there is no reason to shoulder the burden all by yourself.
Scott Law has provided representation throughout countless personal injury lawsuits throughout Houston, TX, and Harris County. Our firm understands the tumult that arises from these matters. We are standing by, ready to come alongside you and find the resources you need to begin working toward the future.
How Can I Get The Most Out Of A Personal Injury Settlement?
It is important when considering settlement options that you accept an offer that will cover your needs in the long term.
In many cases, companies and insurance providers will make “low ball” settlements as early as possible in order to undercut a full estimate of the damages that are incurred by a claimant. Because of this, it is important to wait until your medical situation is fully assessed and you have received all the immediate treatment you will need to recover.
Additionally, it is essential to assess the full damages that you may be entitled to and compare it to the settlement offered. For example, an Auto Accidents Attorney in a personal injury case will work to negotiate a settlement that not only provides for vehicle and medical expenses but for wage loss and “pain and suffering” coverage, as well.
Do I Need To Hire An Attorney For A Personal Injury Crimes Case?
If you have been the victim of a criminal act that has resulted in an injury, you may be entitled to compensation that can cover your damages.
It is not necessary to retain an attorney to “press charges” against an individual who criminally harmed you, criminal matters are prosecuted by the district attorney’s office on behalf of the state. What’s more, a person convicted of a crime that harmed you may be ordered by the court to pay restitution to you.
Unfortunately, court-ordered restitution may not provide an adequate amount of financial resources. If this happens to you, you may consider speaking with a Personal Injury Lawyer who can help you to bring a separate, civil Personal Injury case against the aggressor.

I Was Partially At Fault For The Accident That Caused My Injuries. How Will That Impact My Houston Personal Injury Claim?
In the State of Texas, if you are more than 50% responsible for your own injury, then you’re not entitled to any payment at all. If the insurance adjuster believes that you’re more at fault, they simply won’t pay anything at all, and their decision not to do so will likely be reinforced in court if you have no evidence to the contrary. So, unfortunately, if you were over 50% responsible for the accident, you may be out of luck. Read More
