Many residents of the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) don’t know a lot about lawyers until they realize that they need one. Then they start to explore the different types of lawyers when they realize that lawyers do, in fact, specialize. In that respect, lawyers are similar to, say, surgeons: if you need a brain surgeon, a dental surgeon would be no use to you at all, even though both of them are surgeons. It works the other way around too: if you need a dental surgeon, a brain surgeon wouldn’t be able to help.
This is where people get confused when they have been in a car accident that wasn’t their fault. They know that they need a lawyer, but they look for a car accident lawyer, when the technical term by which we are known at Villarreal Law Firm is “personal injury lawyer”.
If you have been in a car accident and suffered an injury as a result, you need us as your personal injury lawyer. In the same way as surgeons, a conveyancing lawyer or a corporate lawyer wouldn’t be able to help you. And to be honest, we couldn’t really help you with your conveyancing when you move home.
But We DO Know How To Handle your Personal Injury Claim
But we can and do know how to deal with personal injury cases. At Villarreal Law Firm, over the past few years we have recovered over $500 million in damages for our clients who have been injured in auto accidents or trucking accidents in the towns in and around the Rio Grande Valley (RGV). That’s because we are specialists in recovering damages from insurance companies who fight tooth and nail in order to avoid having to pay up.
And fight, they do. Think about it for a moment. When insurance companies want your business, they will tell you almost anything in order to get it. One English insurance company, for instance, a couple of years ago was running ads on TV saying that they “LOVE” to pay insurance claims. They were very quickly forced to stop doing that.
Insurance companies make their profit by raking in as much as they can in premiums and paying out as little as possible. Yes, they want your business, but no, they don’t want to pay out, because the less they pay out, the more profit they make! So they will do everything that they can to reduce their payments to the minimum. That includes hiring expensive lawyers to fight on their side.
That is why, if you have been in a car accident and need a personal injury lawyer, you need us. Because, quite simply, we fight too. And we are very good at it. What’s more, if we don’t win your case, we don’t charge you any fees, so you really cannot lose. If you’ve been in an accident in Brownsville, Harlingen, or elsewhere in Cameron County, call Javier. He’s the attorney who will fight fo you; the accident attorney who cares.
