For example, if you own a business and fail to alert customers to the fact that there is a spill on the floor and someone slips and injuries themselves you have breached the duty of care.

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Help Me With My Claim?
Many individuals come to our offices for consultations and are not really sure if they need a personal injury attorney to help them with their case. For example, many insurance carriers will attempt to entice accident victims into accepting the first settlement offer that they present to them. Although the amount of compensation they offer may seem to be suitable, in most cases the money that they offer you is actually far from what most people who have been injured need in order to recoup their losses.
As a result, many accident victims end up with far less than they would have been able to receive had they obtained qualified legal representation. Not only can a personal injury attorney advocate for you when it comes to dealing with the insurance company, but they also have access to resources such as medical records, police reports, and witness statements.
Along with being able to access important resources, a personal injury attorney is skilled in being able to negotiate with the insurance company. As stated previously, often they will try to reach a quick settlement with you before the case can go to litigation.
However, insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. Their main concern is their own financial bottom line. As a result, the insurance company will often try to deny or undervalue your claim in an effort to avoid a large payout. This is why you should never talk to the other driver’s insurance company. In addition, you should never sign any type of document statement without your attorney being able to review it first. The best advice that you can heed is to always let your attorney speak to the opposing side’s insurance company on your behalf.
A skilled personal injury lawyer will not be afraid to aggressively fight for financial compensation that is best for your well-being.
Finally, when you hire a personal injury attorney they can advise you of what types of damages would be appropriate for your case. The types and amount of damages need to be applicable to your particular case. Your attorney will review all of your medical reports and other forms of documentation and make a determination as to what is an acceptable amount of financial compensation.
Choosing to hire a personal injury lawyer can be a difficult decision. However, hiring a qualified injury attorney to represent you can help you save precious time and money and allow you to concentrate on making a full recovery. Accident victims who hire an attorney to represent them typically obtain larger settlements than those who choose to deal with the insurance company on their own.
The personal injury lawyers of The Redwine Law Firm strive to treat each client in an extremely professional manner with the respect and dignity they deserve. If you are trying to decide whether or not you need a personal injury lawyer to assist you with your claim, contact our law office and ask to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Help With Medical Malpractice?
If you believe that you are the victim of medical malpractice, you need to consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Texas has strict laws that govern the amount of time that you have to file a lawsuit for malpractice. The statute of limitations allows an individual up to two years from the date of the injury to file a claim.
In any medical malpractice case, there are four elements that must be proven in order to recover financial compensation. They are:
- The healthcare professional providing medical treatment owed a duty of care to the patient.
- There was a breach of the duty of care.
- The injury that was suffered as a result of the breach of duty of care.
- Damages were suffered as a result of the injury.
Many patients mistakenly believe that simply because a medical professional makes an error, they are guilty of malpractice. However, this is a fallacy as medical malpractice only occurs if you can prove that the medical professional’s error caused harm and you suffered damages as a result. Medical negligence occurs when a physician makes a mistake.
When attempting to decide if the issue in question is a case of medical malpractice or negligence, Texas law focuses on the intent behind the action. When determining medical negligence, intent is based on the health care provider’s state of mind when they acted or failed to act when treating a patient. If a medical professional fails to act as another individual would be given a similar set of circumstances they could be guilty of medical negligence.
