If you’ve been injured because of the negligence of another party in Grapevine, Texas, you should contact a Grapevine personal injury attorney immediately. In personal injury cases, time is of the essence. In order to protect your legal rights, your attorney should be able to act quickly on your behalf in order to make sure that valuable evidence is protected. Otherwise, the person or company that caused your accident may attempt to avoid responsibility for their actions.

An experienced personal injury attorney will help you obtain compensation for your accident through the civil justice system. A large number of accident cases are settled without a trial. However, other cases require a trial in order to obtain justice for the injured party. Every case is different. You should hire a personal injury attorney with trial experience in case a settlement offer isn’t sufficient to compensate you for your injuries. Some attorneys are afraid of trials and prefer to take a low settlement offer rather than go to trial.  At the Barber Law Firm, our attorneys are ready and willing to go to trial in order to fight for your rights if necessary.

The way an accident case typically proceeds is that the attorney will contact the defendant and any insurance companies to discuss the case, or may file a lawsuit immediately. The attorney will investigate the events and collect evidence, including witness statements, medical evidence and police or accident reports. The attorney may put together a demand letter directed at the defendant, detailing the injuries involved and the facts surrounding the accident. If the parties cannot reach a settlement, the case will go to trial.
