A personal injury lawyer is someone who looks out for you and your best interests. A lawyer will work for you – no one else. Your lawyer will not work for an insurance company and will not be motivated by profits.
Instead, the search for justice will motivate your lawyer. At Villarreal & Begum Law Firm, our Laredo personal injury attorneys have been helping clients in Texas for years. We do everything possible to ensure fair results for each client we accept. We treat our clients with the same respect and compassion we would give to family members.
Hiring an attorney can be especially important if your accident gave you serious injuries. A serious injury is one that could impact your future, such as a broken bone or traumatic brain injury.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to lowball settlement offers for serious injuries. Accepting a low settlement could force you to pay more out of pocket later. Instead of settling for less, hire an attorney to hold a defendant accountable for 100% of the compensation owed.
Insurance companies are not in business to compensate you for the true extent of your losses. In fact, an insurance adjuster is obligated to protect the company’s bottom line by paying as little as possible for accident claims.
That’s why you should never give a statement, sign anything, or accept any payment from an insurance company after a serious accident unless you have spoken with an experienced Laredo personal injury lawyer. You could be signing away your rights to the full compensation you need and deserve.
When you choose Villarreal & Begum Law Firm to represent you, our skilled personal injury attorneys will:

A personal injury claim arises out of any personal injury accident such as a slip and fall, defective product, or a truck or Loredo car accident in which a victim is injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or corporation. The first step in a personal injury claim is the filing of the claim itself.
A formal claim is filed with the at-fault party’s insurance company once the victim has information regarding the extent of their injuries and any accident-related losses. Next, an insurance adjuster is assigned to the case to investigate the accident.
The adjuster obtains any evidence needed to investigate the claim. This may include police or other accident report, photos or videos of the accident, and medical records. This helps the adjuster determine if the insured party is liable for any injuries and how much the claim is worth.
It is in the victim’s best interests to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to conduct an independent investigation on their behalf. Their personal injury attorney will search for new evidence and use current evidence to their advantage. The victim’s attorney may even find out that fault lies with multiple parties and pursue separate sources of compensation on their client’s behalf.
After filing an insurance claim, it is common to receive a low settlement offer from the insurance company. This offer may be countered or accepted depending on the facts of the case and the extent of the victim’s injuries.
The process of offers and counteroffers continues until a settlement amount is reached. An experienced attorney will know when it is appropriate to accept an insurance company offers.
There are alternative methods of resolving an insurance claim in addition to settlement negotiations. The parties may choose to take their dispute to mediation, arbitration, or trial.
Compensation in personal injury claims varies depending on the severity and extent of a victim’s injuries, their prognosis for recovery, and the accident’s impact on their overall life. However, there are basic guidelines that apply to all damage awards in Laredo.
There are two types of damages available in personal injury cases. These are economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are damages with fixed or approximate dollar amounts easily associated with them like:
Non-economic damages are more subjective types of damages. These include:
