Do You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Dallas?
If you suffered severe injuries due to the suspected wrongdoing of another, you should seek help from a personal injury lawyer in Dallas as soon as possible. If another party caused your injuries by acting intentionally, reckless or simply carelessly, you may be eligible to recover significant compensation. This compensation can cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, emotional distress and more. It could make a major difference in your recovery from your injuries and your future.
An insurance company may try to convince you that you don’t need to hire a lawyer – the insurer will simply cut you a settlement check, and you can sign a release and be on your way. However, once you sign that release, you will be unable to bring legal action and seek more funds in the future if that settlement check fails to fully cover all of your losses. In reality, the insurance company’s first offer often does fail to cover all of a victim’s losses or represent the maximum amount that the victim is eligible to receive.
This is why you need to hire a lawyer. You owe it to yourself to find out whether the insurance company is dealing fairly with you and offering you the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and losses.

Steps You Should Take After You Suffer an Injury in Dallas
You can easily make a mistake after you suffer injuries in an accident in Dallas and hurt your ability to recover compensation. To help you to avoid those mistakes, our legal team at Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C., suggests that you take these three basic steps:
- Get medical attention – See a doctor right away after your accident. If you wait too long to get medical attention, it may lead an insurance company to question whether your accident caused your injuries, or whether your injuries are as severe as you claim. You should make sure to follow your doctor’s treatment plan through to the finish.
- Report your accident – You should make sure to report your auto accident to the police and to your own insurance company. If you were hurt in a slip and fall or dog attack, you should promptly report the injury to the property owner or dog owner. A timely report will help to establish your claim.
- Decline to speak with the insurance company – If the other party’s insurance company offers to settle your case or asks for a statement or access to your medical records, you should simply decline to speak until you talk first with your lawyer at Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C.
Additionally, don’t talk about your injuries or your legal case on Twitter, Facebook or other social media sites until your case is resolved. You should consider giving up social media altogether until your case is over in order to avoid the risk of the insurance company taking something that you post out of context and using it against you.
