Texas Personal Injury Lawyers

Texas personal injury lawyers are just as big as Texas itself. Texas is the second largest U. S. state (California is first) with 23 million residents and a proportionate amount of personal injury lawyers, so those who have been injured do not have to settle for lawyers who are not personal injury specialists as might be the case in lesser populated states.

Find a qualified and extremely competent personal injury lawyer in your location.
 

In choosing a qualified Texas personal injury lawyer, it is important to pick one who is familiar with Texas history, culture and politics.

Texas is one of the more politically robust states and is known for its harsh penalties for criminals. In the past 30 years, 359 executions have been carried out in Texas, the most in the nation. It is advisable to see the page on personal injury lawyers first for general information on how to choose a qualified attorney and then return to this page for specifics about choosing a personal injury lawyer in Texas.

Over the past 45 years, a historically Democratic Texas has swung to be Republican controlled in the executive branch and both branches of the state legislature. As civil law is influenced by political climate, it is important that the Texas personal injury lawyer you choose have a knowledgeable grounding in the politics of his or her district and the state. When choosing a Texas personal injury lawyer it is advised that you try to choose one in the district in where the injury occurred so that your attorney is familiar with the court procedures, laws, mores and nuances of attitudes for that region.

For instance, even though most of Texas is strongly Republican (conservative) there are pockets of Democratic (liberal) power in cities like Austin, El Paso, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio and in the Rio Grand Valley. Knowing the conservative and liberal biases of a region will help the Texas personal injury attorney to litigate the case more effectively. In fact, one of the questions you may wish to ask the prospective pool of personal injury lawyers that you are interviewing for the job, can be about their knowledge of the political climate of their district and how this influences personal injury cases.

Other questions you may wish to ask when interviewing the lawyers may be how long they have lived and worked in the district, how many trials they've litigated locally and the results of those trials. If your case may involve punitive damages, ask the prospective lawyer about this since Texas limits damages in most tort actions. In general, punitive damages may not exceed 2 times the amount of economic damages, plus non-economic damages up to $750,000. The prospective attorney needs to be well versed in this area and if not then this may raise a cautionary red flag in the interview process. Texas is also a comparative responsibility state and plaintiffs may only receive damages if their responsibility for the injury is 50-percent or less. If the attorney is not clear on this fact, then another red flag is in order.

Also, ask for professional references and find out what opinion other lawyers have of your prospective Texas lawyer. Though Texas personal injury lawyers may be hesitant to tell tales about each other, many times you may be able to read between the lines and get a consensus when talking with several references about the prospective attorney.

If you would like to test a prospective Texas personal injury lawyer about case law, you may wish to ask if they can tell you about Wilhelm v. Flores, which involves whether or not the seller of bee hives has the duty to warn the buyer about the inherent dangers involved. Another case along the same lines is Kroger Company v. Elwood, which involves whether or not the company had the duty to warn the employee about the inherent dangers of his job. If these two personal injury cases are too obscure, then talk to the prospective lawyer about the Asbestos/Silica Litigation Reform: SB 15 (2005) bill, which establishes medical criteria for asbestos claims. This is a case that any qualified Texas personal injury lawyer, who is up-to-date and has been around a while can talk about.

In regards on where to find a qualified attorney, referrals from your friends, neighbors and coworkers is a good place to start. The Texas State Bar also offers an attorney referral service unlike most other state bar associations. In addition, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles also offers a personal injury lawyer referral service so these are two places one can start when beginning the search for a qualified attorney.

Remember that Texas personal injury attorneys are especially focused on the laws of Texas at the state and local levels. Ask plenty of questions when researching attorneys and deliberate on your choice much like a juror would about a case to which they have listened. With much thought and consideration, you are bound to make the choice that is right for you. Even if you don't, you may always change attorneys if the situation changes or if it just isn't working out.
