If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be wondering if you need an attorney or whether you can handle your case on your own.

It is important to remember that handling a personal injury claim without a lawyer can be extremely difficult, even without a lawsuit. There are time constraints and other legal requirements that must be met. Insurance companies may try to take advantage of you and offer to settle your case for much less than it is worth. Financial settlements can be complicated and confusing. Fighting in court is expensive. A lawyer can simplify this process for you.

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, we have been helping accident victims in Texas since 1951. We have helped thousands of clients over the years, and we can help you and your family as well.

Legal Requirements

The legal system can be a maze. Numerous steps are involved in preparing a case. A solid investigation of the events leading up to and following the accident is required. This may involve interviewing witnesses, conducting inspections of the scene, vehicles, and other evidence, and working with accident reconstructionists and other experts. If you delay, witnesses may become difficult to find or may forget details, and evidence may be lost or destroyed.

Preparing a claim and negotiating with insurance companies are also part of the process. Misfiling a claim can cost you everything. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re saving money by doing it yourself. The insurance company won’t make that error in defending itself.


How many claims do you think the average insurance adjuster handles in one year? Hundreds. How many have you negotiated in your life? Maybe none.

The personal injury attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner have the experience you need. We have been representing seriously injured clients for more than 70 years. We handle every aspect of your case and are committed to seeking the best possible results on your behalf.

No Upfront Costs, Free Consultation

Our firm offers a free discussion of your case to determine how we can help you. If we can help you, no fee is due until we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.

Case preparation costs money. Hiring experts is expensive. Filing fees, court costs, voluminous copies, attorney time, interviews, deposition recording (questioning the person responsible for your injury) and travel expenses add up quickly.

Wondering about structured settlements? Insurance companies and defendants offer payments over time. An offer of $100,000 today is not the same as $5,000 per year for 20 years. Experts need to review the options to best serve your situation.

Settling your case is expensive. The insurance companies and defendants want to settle cheap, and some of them are pretty good at it. They have lawyers who will fight for them, so you need lawyers who will fight for you.

You need to level the playing field by tapping our experience. When someone injures you, causes the wrongful death of a loved one or takes away your ability to earn an income, you want us working for you.
