Why Hire Us?

Board Certification

It’s not difficult to find a Longview car accident attorney. The real challenge is deciding which one you should trust with your injury claim. There are more than 100,000 attorneys in East Texas. Of those, only 1,340 are board certified personal injury lawyers. When you work with the Patton, Nix & Young Law Firm, you can have confidence that you have some of the few board certified attorneys in Texas fighting for you.

One-On-One Legal Counsel

Typically, when a client hires a law firm, the person rarely sees their attorney. You may not even meet your lawyer until the day of your trial. Instead, clients usually work primarily with paralegals and legal assistants. That’s not how we choose to operate at Patton, Nix & Young. When you come to our office, you will sit across from one of our attorneys who will take time to listen to your concerns and provide the best legal advice to move forward with your case.

Do I Really Need An Auto Accident Lawyer?

Many people attempt to file a car accident claim on their own. That is advised in the case of a simple fender bender. However, if you have suffered serious injury, it’s crucial to speak with a car wreck lawyer who understands how to protect your rights and work toward maximizing your settlement.

Here are three reasons we recommend calling an attorney:

Because Your Attorney Will Deal With The Insurance Company

Most insurance companies will attempt to negotiate the lowest possible settlement, which is rarely enough to cover all of your medical bills or vehicle repairs. When you work with an attorney, we will deal with the insurance company for you and work hard to negotiate a reasonable deal with the intention of recovering the compensation you deserve - which is often much more than the insurance company will offer you.

Because It Doesn’t Cost You Anything

Many of our clients are concerned that they can’t afford to hire an attorney. However, our fee comes from the settlement you receive when your case is resolved. In other words, you do not have to pay anything out of pocket for your case. And if your case is unsuccessful, our firm will absorb your legal fees so that you do not owe us anything.

Because we help you focus on what really matters — you!

After a serious injury, the last thing you should be focused on is paperwork and insurance claims. Our attorneys can take that burden off your shoulders so you can focus on getting better.

How Is Compensation Determined For A Car Accident?

A prompt and thorough investigation into your auto accident is the first step to determine how much compensation you are eligible to receive for your car accident. Our experienced team of attorneys will provide the services needed to accomplish this goal.

After an investigation, we assess the “damages” (or costs) that resulted from the wreck.

There are two primary categories of damages: financial and non-financial.

Financial damages are hard costs that have a real dollar amount associated with them. These may include:

  • Hospital bills
  • Car repairs
  • Loss of wages if the injury has prevented you from returning to work
  • Etc.

Non-financial damages are not hard costs. They do not have a monetary value, but they are included when assessing your compensation. These include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • And other intangible “damages”

Our commitment is to do everything possible to help you receive the compensation you need to recover all of your expenses and more.

We highly recommend seeking the help of a board certified personal injury lawyer at Patton, Nix & Young so that you can work with a team of experienced lawyers who will fight for you.
