Car accidents can leave you with injuries, a long-term recovery process, and no way to earn income while you heal. If another driver was at fault for your accident, Texas law allows you to pursue compensation for these damages, but this process is not always easy. An insurance company may dispute your claim or try to settle your case for a low amount.
If you want legal help on your side, a Carrollton car accident lawyer from Underwood Law Office may be able to represent you. As soon as you sign on, we can take over all communications and paperwork in your settlement negotiations. If the responsible party’s insurance company refuses to make you a fair offer, we can take them to trial.
Underwood Law Office operates on a contingency-fee-basis. In this agreement, you pay us nothing for our work unless and until you recover compensation in a settlement offer or court award.
We invite you to call our firm today at (972) 535-6377 for a free, no-obligation consultation on your case with a member of the Underwood Law Office team.
