Frequently Asked Questions
When people come in with injuries seeking our help for many different accidents they’ve experienced, we still receive many similar questions despite each and every unique situation. It brings comfort to some, knowing that they’re not going through such a troubling time alone, and so we’ve provided a few of these questions below to get you started. Of course, it’s unlikely that you’ll find the answers to all of your questions below, so contact us at (713) 352-7071 with any additional questions you have.
When should I call a lawyer and begin the process of pursuing litigation?
Immediately. You should not hesitate a single second longer if you’ve been injured. The best time to call an attorney would be as soon as you can dial a number or, if you’re calling on behalf of a family member, at the earliest possible time. Of course, your number one priority is to make sure you’re safe and taken care of, especially since we’ll be fighting to get the compensation you’ll need to cover your hospital bills. After that, time is limited due to what’s known as the statute of limitations. This prevents the victims of accidents and injuries from bringing forward claims against the responsible party after a certain number of years. For most areas of law under personal injury, including personal injury itself, product liability, medical malpractice, and wrongful death, this time limit is two years in Texas. That may seem like a lot of time, but the sooner you call, the sooner you’ll be on the road to receiving compensation and the sooner you can pay off your growing medical or funeral costs.
Why do I need a lawyer?
Many people can and have chosen to try to take on the party responsible for their injuries alone. However, it’s important to remember that no insurance company is your friend. Hospitals who have a board of directors who care more about their bottom line and protecting themselves than they care about hurt patients. Even your boss might try to lower your access to workers’ compensation through a number of shady means to try to keep their profits high. When it comes to seeking compensation for the injuries you unjustly suffered, you’ll have few friends on your side. However, it’s possible for you to even the stakes with a powerful attorney: someone who is fighting for you, and whose paycheck also depends on their ability to win your case. Williams Kherkher is one such attorney who works on contingency fees. If we don’t win, we don’t get paid, so we’re invested in giving you the absolute best service we can offer to try to get you the compensation you not only deserve, but you need. On average, people who employ the assistance of an attorney receive over three times the amount of compensation that people who chose to represent themselves receive. There is little risk in hiring an attorney to fight for you, but high reward, so call today.
How much money will I receive in compensation?
The answer to this question depends on quite a large number of very specific factors in your case. For example, what type of personal injury case is this and what subsequent medical help did you receive? If it was a car accident or a slip and fall, for example, maybe you only have one medical bill to pay and need compensatory fees for wages you lost from work. If you were further injured in a medical malpractice case, we could be looking to receive compensation for the original treatment, the subsequent treatment, and any other ongoing medical bills you may have incurred due to the error. These are just a couple examples of the ways your case will vary wildly from other clients’. In general, we could be seeking money back to pay for any medical bills, to make up for wages lost from work, and for non-economic damages like pain and suffering. Past and future amounts definitely apply in all of those situations, as well.
