The Houston Auto Accident Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office often hear from injured parties who have hired other attorneys to handle their car accident cases. A majority of these calls are from injured parties with personal injury claims stating they cannot get their lawyer to talk to them about their case.
They say every time they call they are told the attorney is out and the secretary with whom they talk cannot explain to them what is going on with their traffic accident case. Another common complaint is that the attorney has told the client we are handling your injury claim but we will not do anything to help you with getting paid on your car damage or for any rental charges you may incur. Another complaint is that the they have not even ever met the attorney or talked to him or her. Also some of these clients state that the attorney has not even got them to a doctor for medical treatment. After laying out the complaint they then ask if they can fire the attorney and hire our law firm. We tell them that under Texas law they are at the mercy of the attorney that they hired. Once you sign a contract with an attorney he can enforce that contract to its’ fullest extent. If you hire another attorney, you could be on the hook for payng two lawyers. The only way to get out of a contract with an attorney on an injury claim is if he lets you out of it voluntarily.
If you have been in an accident recently, call the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office. You will talk directly with an attorney and will have your medical and transportation problems addressed immediately. After you are well we will obtain the money to which you are entitled for your injuries.
