Get The Car Accident Lawyer Odessa Trusts
Our law firm knows how to take on the insurance companies
If you were involved in a car accident in Odessa, you may have suffered a whiplash injury. Whiplash can be very debilitating and have a significant impact on your life. If you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. The experienced car accident lawyers at Chad Jones Law, P.C. fight for your rights.
Whiplash injuries often happen in rear-end accidents but can also be caused by other types of crashes. The force of the collision can cause your head to jerk forward and backward very suddenly. This can cause injuries to neck muscles, ligament and discs. It can also cause a head injury, leaving you with a concussion.
Symptoms of whiplash may take time to appear. They can include neck pain and stiffness, and back and shoulder pain. You may also experience headaches, dizziness and difficulty concentrating. Recovery may take weeks or months, or even longer. You may be unable to return to work for some time after your accident.
If you’ve been injured, our attorneys can help
Treatment for whiplash can involve physical therapy, medication, the use of a neck brace and in some cases, surgery. You may need several follow-up appointments with a doctor. The medical expenses can add up quickly. If you are forced to miss time from work, you can experience a loss of income.
When a negligent driver caused the accident that left you injured, you should not have to pay. Recovering financial compensation can be difficult, however. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies aren’t interested in paying you fair compensation. They will try to pay you as little as possible.
That’s why you need an experienced car accident attorney who knows how to fight the insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve. Our firm has been helping the injured in Odessa for more than 20 years. People trust us with their car accident cases because they know we don’t stop fighting until we get results.
Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that force the insurance companies to take you seriously. Our firm’s founder, Chad E. Jones, is a board-certified personal injury trial lawyer through the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Only two percent of the lawyers in the state have this certification. We are dedicated to doing all we can for our clients.
Building strong cases that get results
We start by investigating your crash. Our legal team gathers evidence, including any photos or video. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists who can help us understand what happened.
Insurance companies often agree to talk about a settlement when they see that we have built a strong case and are ready to fight them in court. We’re only interested in a settlement that meets your needs. We negotiate a settlement that includes compensation for all your current and future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages, such as pain and suffering.
If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Odessa, don’t delay. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. It’s important to investigate your crash before evidence is lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses fade.
