Motivation For Practicing Personal Injury Law In Texas
Helping people and holding those who have harmed others accountable is what drives us at the Parker Law Firm and was the fundamental reason why Brad Parker became an attorney. When someone has suffered a serious injury or the loss of a loved one, they are often times very vulnerable or just need help in dealing with the overwhelming issues that arise and come at them from every direction. The injured and their families become subjected to a process and system that they did not expect, do not understand and cannot easily navigate. At the Parker Law Firm we pride ourselves on being able to help our clients in not only being fairly compensated for their injuries, but in navigating the issues of subrogation, liens, medical expenses and bill collectors. It is important to us that you feel you are part of our family and you will always be treated as such.
Brad Parker has always been for the underdog. He was inspired to become a lawyer in many respects by observing the injustices people often times had to endure at the hands of insurance companies and corporations. Having been raised by a hard working blue collar father, he was instilled with a fundamental sense of wrong and right. He saw at an early age the abuses that insurance companies often inflict on people – simply for filing a claim. The callous disregard of people by insurance companies and corporations is inherently wrong and should never be tolerated. As such, Brad determined that by becoming a lawyer that he could hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions and seeing that those who have suffered serious injuries and loss could be fairly compensated to the highest extent possible. Having worked first hand at the beginning of his career for a corporate law firm Brad quickly realized that it is much more satisfying to be able to help honest, hardworking, everyday people as opposed to insurance companies and corporate America.
Is Filing A Personal Injury Claim A Relatively Easy Process?
Making a claim is easy. Getting the insurance company to honor the claim and fairly pay it is very difficult. As a general rule, the insurance companies fight tooth and nail to minimize if not outright avoid paying a claim. They typically contest the extent of injury as well as necessity for substantial portions of medical treatment. The insurance company will blame the injured party for their own injuries and rely on legal technicalities to diminish the claim as much as possible. In addition, once the money is paid the next problem is keeping the money. There are doctor bills, hospital bills, health insurance companies – all of which have potentially significant legal rights to all or a portion of the proceeds through liens, subrogation or contractual rights. Often times it is more difficult fighting off these interests than it is fighting to get the compensation in the first place. The legal hurdles involving these issues are significant and some statutes make it a crime not to honor the subrogation interests of governmental programs.
In short, it is easy to file a claim. Getting fairly compensated and being able to keep the recovery is very complicated.
