WHY HIRE A BOARD CERTIFIED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
A personal injury caused by an auto accident is the biggest reason personal injury victims seek personal injury attorneys. The insurance company for the negligent driver will have professionals immediately working to prevent the victim from recovering personal injury damages. The personal injury victim needs a board-certified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to preserve evidence and investigate.
The board-certified personal injury attorney is certified by the State Bar of Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has proven experience and competence to handle all aspects of an auto accident from beginning through a jury trial and appeal.
A victim typically retains an auto accident attorney on a contingent fee. A board-certified personal injury attorney charges the same percentage on a contingent fee as an inexperienced lawyer who solicits auto accident victims. The board-certified personal injury attorney is usually more efficient and thorough in gathering the evidence to support the claim. What is more, the board-certified personal injury attorney has more credibility and is taken more seriously by the insurance company for the negligent driver.
On average, board certified personal injury attorney will resolve the victim’s claim quicker and for more money than the attorney who is not board certified.
The saying: “if you want to spend a lot of money – then hire an amateur” is relevant to the choice to hire a board-certified personal injury attorney as opposed to an attorney who is not so board certified.
