Why people prefer local attorneys

If you are injured in an accident, obtaining a local lawyer can make handling your claim easier for you. For one thing, an attorney whose office is close to you is more convenient. By having your lawyer close by, you can also avoid travel if you are suffering from a serious injury. However, the best reason for someone injured in Kaufman County is that Richard Stucky has extensive experience handling accident cases. He acquired trial skills while working at large prominent firms and has been practicing law for over 20 years. For a long time, he has focused entirely on personal injury cases. His competence is evident through his designation of Board Certified in Personal Injury Law, which indicates substantial, relevant experience in this area of law.


Are you looking for a reliable attorney?

Whenever possible, Attorney Richard Stucky obtains fair settlements for his clients without going to trial. When lawyers can get fair compensation for clients without a trial, it is better for everyone. Yet, what sets Richard apart from many other lawyers is the fact he has successfully handled numerous cases through trial—the tough cases that do not settle outside of court. He has substantial experience and significant skills arguing on behalf of his clients to get them the compensation they deserve. In addition, being known as a trial lawyer holds sway with insurance companies. It can provide leverage during negotiations.


Why should you get legal advice before accepting a settlement offer?

Insurance companies are more concerned about protecting their bottom lines than providing for your well-being. When Kaufman County accident reports come in or when an insurance company learns of a fatal crash, they might rush to provide a settlement offer. The reason you should never settle a case right away is because it takes time to know the extent of your injuries and expenses. If you were seriously injured, you want to wait until a doctor says you have reached maximum medical improvement. This means that your condition will not likely improve with further treatment. Settling too early can result in not having money to cover vital medical assistance. Also, when disability becomes a factor, you may not be able to earn as much as you did previously. A delayed settlement can take that factor into account.

An attorney weighs all of the variables when calculating a fair settlement figure. The ideal outcome is to maximize the insurance payout so it will cover your expenses.
