DALLAS personal injury lawyers

The lead attorneys at McGilberry & Shirer have been in the business for a combined 60 years and know exactly what each claim needs to succeed.

A personal injury can bring your life to a screeching halt. It can become the only thing you think about for months or even years after the fact. Everyone has a duty to some degree not to cause harm to others. If someone in your life breached this duty, such as a fellow driver, employer, or product manufacturer, you can take legal action in pursuit of justice and financial compensation. It is your right to file a claim and seek monetary recovery for your hospital bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Pursuing compensation in Dallas is much easier with a great attorney representing your case

The lead attorneys at McGilberry & Shirer have been in the business for a combined 60 years and know exactly what each claim needs to succeed. Our attorneys make sure that insurance companies don’t take advantage of you or manipulate you into settling for less than you deserve by “playing nice” or through underhanded tactics like undervaluing your claim. We fight hard to get you the recovery you need to move on with your life.

Why Trust McGilberry & Shirer with Your Case?

Personal injury law isn’t something practitioners go into by accident. It’s a legal field that takes a great deal of heart, passion, and commitment. The attorney you choose to represent you during a personal injury claim in Dallas should care first and foremost about you – your health and future. You should get the feeling that the lawyer you talk to is truly listening to your plight and will work hard to protect your rights and solve the issues surrounding your unique claim. There are many reasons to trust us with your claim, but here are three:

  • Attorney involvement. When you choose our law firm, you get close personal attention from one of our experienced attorneys, not an assistant or paralegal. The only person who will handle your claim is your lawyer. You never have to worry about the quality of work or who will answer the phone when you call about your ongoing case. When you want to reach your lawyer, that’s who you’ll reach.
  • Full claims handling. McGilberry & Shirer takes care of all aspects of a claim at no extra charge. We handle issues relating to property damage, locate providers who will treat car accident victims (many health providers will not), reduce the cost of medical bills, and take care of insurance subrogation and hospital liens. We go above and beyond to make sure our clients don’t feel lost or alone at any point during the claims process.
  • Extensive experience. One of the most common tips you’ll see and hear after an accident is to retain an attorney with experience handling your type of case. Our lead attorneys, Steve and Bill, both have over 30 years of practice, and have represented more than 10,000 personal injury victims in North Texas. Bill is board certified in personal injury trial law and has the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell rating – a prestigious peer review standard.

We make filing your claim and dealing with insurance companies easy, so you don’t have to talk to anyone other than your lawyer and your doctor. Learn more about our attorneys to see why we’d be the perfect fit for your personal injury claim.

About Personal Injury Law in Texas

Hiring an attorney gives you an inside look at the numerous laws and statutes that might affect your claim. Personal injury laws in Texas are often on the victims’ side if you know how to use them. The deeper the knowledge of the law, the stronger the case. McGilberry & Shirer knows all the nuances and intricacies of PI law in Texas and can help clients get the most for their claims. After one conversation with one of our attorneys, you’ll understand your rights and entitlements by law after a harmful accident. In the meantime, here are a few laws that apply to most personal injury cases in the Lone Star State:

  • Deadlines to file. There are “statutes of limitations,” or time limits, for filing certain types of claims in Texas. You have two years from the date of the accident to bring most kinds of civil claims, including claims involving medical malpractice, product liability, property damage, wrongful death, assault and battery, and personal injury.
  • Negligence rules. Almost all personal injury claims center on the legal concept of negligence. “Negligence” is the failure to take proper care in performing an action, resulting in injury or damage to another. You might have to prove the other party’s negligence to qualify for financial compensation after a personal injury accident. This takes showing that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached this duty.
  • Shared fault laws. Texas is a “modified comparative negligence” state. This means that the courts are open to splitting fault between two or more parties. As long as the injured party, or plaintiff, is 50% or less to blame for the incident, he or she will still be eligible for compensation. The courts will simply reduce the compensation award by an amount equivalent to the plaintiff’s percentage of fault.

You can focus on getting better and returning to work while we take care of everything else.
