As personal injury lawyers in Dallas, our job is to recover fair compensation from someone who has injured our client through negligence, or from their insurance company. That is not an easy job because defendants tend to be evasive, while insurance companies tend to undervalue your claims. Following is a general overview of the claim resolution process.
The first step in obtaining compensation for you is to file a formal written claim with the opposing party, typically an insurance company with whom the defendant holds a policy. We will gather information from you concerning your claim, and we will issue a demand letter to the opposing party as a starting point for negotiations.
We will investigate the facts of your case to obtain as much evidence as possible supporting your claim. This includes evidence of the defendant’s liability as well as evidence of the magnitude of your losses. We usually file a lawsuit to take advantage of the court-supervised discovery process, to aggressively push your matter forward, and to show the insurance carrier that we mean business.
Insurance adjusters have a thousand negotiating tricks up their sleeves. We have seen them all before, and we’re not going to fall for any of them. Let us handle the negotiations while you focus on recovering your health. Remember, though, that only you can approve a settlement offer.
We settle the vast majority of our client’s personal injury claims outside of court. Nevertheless, under certain circumstances, the defendant may refuse to offer just compensation for your pain and suffering. In that case, we may have no choice but to take your claim all the way to trial. Our attorneys enjoy extensive successful litigation experience– which is exactly why so few opposing parties dare to meet us in court.
There are many different ways to injure the human body, and we have seen almost all of them at some point or another. These claims can get complex, and you are going to need a lawyer for personal injury law in Dallas to maximize your chance of victory.
Over the years, we have worked with a wide variety of injuries, including the following:
Each of these injuries involves its own special legal considerations.
When you suffer an injury caused by someone else's misconduct, you are entitled to full compensation for all of your losses, both tangible and intangible. Texas personal injury law divides personal injury compensation into three categories: special damages, general damages, and punitive damages.
Special damages are for specific economic losses, general damages are for intangible emotional and psychological damages, and punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for outrageous behavior. Following are some examples of the various components of a personal injury damages claim.
Courts only occasionally award punitive damages. A good example of a case where a court may award punitive damages is a drunk driving accident.
There are many reasons why Brooks & Radchenko should be your first choice. Following are only a few:
Following are examples of some of our recent results:
I suffered a catastrophic personal injury in a Dallas truck accident. My previous lawyer pressured me to accept a quick, inadequate settlement so he could earn a quick commission. Brooks & Radchenko, by contrast, filed a lawsuit, settled right before trial, and got me three times as much as my previous lawyer had been offering.
I suffered a serious injury in a car accident caused by a motorist with an inadequate insurance policy. Brooks & Radchenko discovered that the motorist had been on duty at the time of the accident. They got me a generous settlement from the defendant’s employer.
My child was badly mauled by my neighbor’s dog. I didn’t want to sue because my neighbor is a good friend of mine. Mr. Brooks was able to negotiate a high-value settlement with my neighbor’s homeowner’s insurance company.

It is virtually impossible to calculate an average personal injury settlement in Dallas/Fort Worth because settlement amounts are typically kept secret. Even if such a figure was available, it would be misleading since personal injury settlement amounts vary drastically from case to case.
Not without consulting with your lawyer first. In fact, it would be best for you to hire a lawyer immediately and then tell the insurance company to direct any further inquiries to your lawyer. Insurance companies are very good at prompting you to make statements that they can use against you.
