How To Choose A Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident, you may find yourself searching for an attorney to help you through the legal process. Personal injury attorneys perform several services for their clients regarding injuries, illnesses, medical conditions, disabilities, and property damage caused by the negligence of a person or a company.

Some people think of accidents as a moment in time: a car wreck, a surgery gone bad, an on-the-job injury or a product failure. However, that moment began well before the incident and continues until the victim is made whole again, including future complications.

Personal injury cases are motion pictures, not snapshots.

It is important to choose a personal injury lawyer who understands this concept. Real-world experience teaches this lesson and fosters compassion for clients in similar circumstances. Important characteristics to look for when choosing a law firm include:

  1. Reputation
  2. Experience
  3. Results
  4. Resources

Let's take a look at each of these characteristics in depth.

Reputation

We are the oldest personal injury law firm in Texas, and we have been helping injured clients and their family members since 1951.

Our attorneys are continually being recognized for their accomplishments, professional achievements and community involvement. Our attorneys have won local, state and national awards - many of which are the result of nominations from other attorneys and law firms.

We are active in the community. Several of our attorneys hold leadership positions in professional organizations and we sponsor many community events in the Houston area.

We are committed to our clients and our local community, and we are committed to helping you during this difficult time.

Experience

For more than 65 years, we have been helping clients with a wide variety of injury claims: motor vehicle accidents, aviation accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, defective drugs, explosions, workplace injuries, and more.

Abraham Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz has an experienced litigator for your circumstances who is confidant, willing to listen to you, assess your situation and consult with you on available courses of action. All of the firm's partners are board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and members of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), both of which require extensive trial experience and litigation experience.

We use our experience to conduct thorough investigations on behalf of our clients.

Accident reconstruction is a detailed method of understanding what led up to the accident.

  • Were safety rules ignored?
  • Did a manufacturer know a product was defective?
  • Would ordinary care have prevented an accident?

The same legal team will assess potential complications to resuming your life.

  • Can you work?
  • Can you return to your regular job?
  • What can go wrong during recovery and rehabilitation?

Your lawyer will review your case, from a thorough investigation into the cause to the ultimate potential effects, changes and costs to your life.

Results

The greatest praise a law firm can receive is from past satisfied clients. Over the years, we have helped thousands of people dealing with the aftermath of serious accidents and injuries.

We have a record of obtaining large trial awards and settlements on behalf of our clients, including numerous multimillion-dollar awards. Although we cannot promise results, our goal is to seek maximum compensation on your behalf so you can return to your normal life.

Resources

You may find yourself needing a law firm that can stand toe-to-toe with companies such as British Petroleum (BP), Wal-Mart, or other large multi-national corporations with seemingly unlimited resources. We litigate and battle with those companies and their lawyers on a daily basis.

It is important to choose a law firm that has the stability and resources to stick with you through the end. Our firm has been in existence since 1951 and has both the stability and the resources to handle your case against anyone or any company.
