If you have been injured in any type of accident, or have lost a loved one due to another person’s negligence or carelessness, you need an experienced personal injury law team right away. It can be difficult to think about legal matters when you have been seriously injured, but that is what we are here for.
At Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers, our goal is to help people like you get through some of the hardest times you have experienced and go on with your lives. Our top-tier Texas personal injury attorneys are experienced in all facets of personal injury law. From preparing cases, negotiating settlements where possible, and winning trials when necessary, our attorneys want to see their clients succeed.
Morris Dewett Injury Lawyers has a proud history of success in personal injury cases throughout Texas. We have won multi-million dollar settlements for our clients, including some of the highest personal injury verdicts in the state. Our attorneys are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and have received five-star accolades from satisfied clients.
For successful personal injury litigation, nothing can beat experience and preparation. A legal team that takes the time to build its case and prepare its witnesses may never need to go to trial, but if they do, clients will be in an excellent position when the case goes to the jury.
The attorneys at Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers regularly participate in mock trials and focus groups to keep their trial skills sharp. Arguing a case before a judge is no different than any other skill – it takes constant practice to make it perfect. Our attorneys are no strangers to the courtroom, and we have likely handled a case similar to yours. We have the experience and training you need to make your case shine in court.
Our clients are our number-one focus. When you work with our firm, you will work directly with your attorneys throughout your case. We will keep you up-to-date on the progress of your case and answer all your questions as things go on. This is your case, and we will keep you directly in the loop so that your interests are paramount.
The attorneys at Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers have had better trial results than any other firm. This matters for your case because insurance companies know we are prepared to take every single case to trial. Although most cases will settle, we never go into a case planning to settle it. Our preparations are made as if the case must be litigated and litigated soon.
This early trial prep gives us an edge over our opponents from the outset. Our opponents know that we are fully prepared to fight and win at trial. That gives them a strong incentive to settle, rather than face a costly trial they are likely to lose. Of 100 cases we took in 2022, only five went to trial. The others settled, rather than go to court.
All states have statutes of limitations. These are deadlines for filing civil cases for personal injury claims. In Texas, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of injury in all types of personal injury cases. The statute of limitations is very strict and if you do not file your claim within those two years, you will be barred from filing after that.
There are a few limitations that an attorney might be able to help you with.
This means that as long as the claimant is less than 51% responsible for their injuries, they can still recover damages in their case. Your recovery will be limited to your degree of liability. However, if you are more than 51% responsible, you will be barred from recovery.
Determining the percentage of fault is ultimately a question of fact, and something that a jury has to decide. Your attorney will review all the reports and witness statements to see what factors exist that could lessen your liability, even if you bear some responsibility for your accident. For instance, if you were climbing a ladder with an object in your hand against company policy, witness statements might show you had been pressured into it by an overbearing manager.
After an accident, you have enough to worry about. You have injuries to recover from, a job to get back to, and bills piling up. You probably know you need to start thinking about filing your insurance claim. Then the phone calls begin. They might be from your insurance company or from the other party, but they will be similar: Offering you a quick check if you’ll agree to settle right now.
Insurance companies make their money by settling for as little as possible. If they can get accident victims to accept a small lump sum payment rather than all the compensation they deserve, they will do it. The insurance company’s attorneys know you are injured and worried about paying bills, and they will offer you a sum that sounds large but is small compared to the amount you need and deserve for your injuries.
Insurance companies and their attorneys may also try to trick you into saying things that will hurt your case. When proving a personal injury case, even something as simple as “I’m fine,” can be taken out of context to show a jury you’re not as hurt as you claim to be. An expression of concern for the other driver becomes a confession of guilt. It’s always best to let your attorney speak for you, even to answer the phone.
When you are represented by the personal injury attorneys at Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers, we will handle all the phone calls and correspondence from the insurance companies for you. We will field the offers and answer their questions, and let you go about the business of getting well.
These are some of the many reasons why you need an attorney by your side when it’s time to file your personal injury claim. The attorneys at Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers have experience with all these factors and will ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
If you or a loved one have been injured because of someone else’s careless or negligent actions, you have the right to expect fair compensation for your injuries. You need the help of experienced attorneys who can represent you in negotiations and in court and help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries, your lost income, and your emotional trauma.
