We focus on helping clients in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Houston, and Austin. Our offices are located in Dallas, but we serve the entire Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The Law Office of Brian Brunson focuses on serious motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury matters that could have a long-lasting effect on you and your loved ones.
The Intake Process
When you reach out to our office, you’ll have the opportunity to chat with our friendly support staff. They’ll inquire about some basic details to understand your situation better. Expect questions about the nature of your potential case, the location of your accident, the presence of witnesses and a police report, applicable insurance coverage, and any past injuries or accidents. Our team will also run a conflict resolution check, ensuring we haven’t previously represented any defendant involved in your case.
Once that’s done, they will schedule an appointment for you to meet with Brian at a time that suits you best. During your initial meeting, we’ll dive into the nuances of your case, discussing the facts, liability aspects, and damages involved. Complex cases might require expert advice or even multiple experts. Brian may recommend hiring a private investigator to secure crucial evidence like witness statements and photographs. We’ll also explore your medical treatment options and set realistic expectations for outcomes in your particular situation.
Rest assured, Brian will be there to address any queries or concerns you may have. He will inform you if additional research is needed on specific legal topics related to your case and offer guidance so that you become familiar with and feel at ease throughout the entire process.
While we focus on the liability aspects of your case, it’s equally essential to discuss damages. You might be eligible for financial damages, such as wage loss compensation and medical bills reimbursement. Other damages may include pain and suffering allowances, accounting for potential permanent injury and alterations in your lifestyle.
The initial office meeting is crucial for building a solid attorney-client relationship. We allocate ample time—usually a couple of hours—to gather all the necessary information so that we begin on the right foot. In many cases, we even schedule follow-up appointments at this stage. The follow-up session will allow us to review additional documents or facilitate meetings with experts like engineers who can provide valuable insights into your case.
Filing a Claim
There are a number of stages a personal injury claim may go through. The following is a breakdown of each stage and what’s involved.
The Investigation: After you file a claim against the negligent driver, their insurance company will initiate their own investigation into the accident. The insurance company will attempt to figure out who and/or what caused the accident. They may determine that it was the fault of their covered party, or they may attempt to place blame on someone or something else. Investigations can last weeks or even months depending upon the severity of the accident and the number of people involved.
Initial Settlement Offer: If the negligent party’s insurance company accepts responsibility for the accident, they will often present a settlement offer to the victim in order to resolve the claim as quickly as possible. This is where many people make the mistake of accepting the insurance company’s offer simply because they likely need the money. However, the insurance company’s initial settlement offer is often significantly less than the amount needed to remedy all of the damages stemming as a result of the accident.
Making a Counter Offer: If you’ve retained a lawyer to represent you, your attorney will inform you of the insurance company’s offer and advise you on the next steps. It is entirely up to you if you choose to accept the initial offer. Your attorney will work with you to determine the total amount of your losses. Chances are the best option at this point will be to make a counter offer. The offer and counter offer process may repeat itself several times until an agreed upon settlement amount is achieved.
Final Settlement: If a settlement is reached, the negligent party’s insurance company will issue a check to your attorney. Before you receive any funds, we will first pay any entities that have a legal right to financial compensation. These entities might include healthcare providers, investigators, etc. We will then deduct our agreed-upon fee for representing you and write you a check for the remaining balance of the settlement.
