2020 ThreeBestRated® Award-winning American Personal Injury Lawyers share their journey

Industry: Legal Services

Austin, TX (PRUnderground) March 17th, 2020

Motor vehicle crashes have become a common occurrence in today’s world. A recent study has revealed that around 3 million people are injured every year in car crashes in the USA. 

A crash can change a person’s life upside down. The medical expenses and the sudden pause in income can put someone under a lot of stress. If you or your loved one suffered injuries because of someone else’s fault, then a personal injury lawyer can represent you and help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Humberto Tijerina and William W. Hurst are Three Best Rated® Award-winning Personal Injury Lawyers from Texas and Indiana. Over the years, both of them have won millions of dollars for their clients.

So, what made them choose this industry? And what has their journey been like so far? The experts themselves explain about their road to success.

Humberto Tijerina:

Growing up, Tijerina witnessed a lot of inequality and bullying around him. He says that is what made him passionate about helping and defending people when they aren’t in the position to do that on their own.

Earlier in his career, he began to practice on transactional and corporate matters. “Dealing with major corporations, taught me to exercise increased attention to detail,” he says.

He founded Tijerina Legal Group, P.C. in 2008 with the vision of creating a legal practice that would not only provide outstanding results, but also an outstanding experience to all clients. “Our passion is taking care of our clients, and we focus on getting the best results – from client’s medical treatment to an outstanding financial recovery,” he says.

Mr. Tijerina considers seeing the gratefulness on his client’s faces after they’ve closed the case and won as his greatest source of satisfaction. “When clients come into my office and gift us with home-baked bread, when they take me by the hand and ask me if they can pray for me, and when they hug me with tears in their eyes. Each one of these events adds up to a big and frequent achievement in the industry that fuels me to find new ways of delivering a better service and experience to my clients,” he smiles.

“What most people don’t know is that when you get crashed into, the insurance industry is designed to minimize your case, set up pitfalls, and pay you as little as possible, for them, it’s just another day doing business” he explains.

“At Tijerina Legal Group, we educate our clients about the pitfalls of the insurance industry,” rather than just telling them how to avoid it. This method helps Tijerina work together with the clients to collect the evidence they need to get the best result and win.

Attorney Tijerina further explains the difference between a personal injury claim and a personal injury lawsuit. “A personal injury claim is where evidence is gathered on behalf of a client to prove up their injuries. Once that is obtained, a demand is sent to the insurance company, where we claim damages on behalf of the client and demand a fair settlement,” he explains. A personal injury lawsuit is when an attorney files a petition with the court, on behalf of an injured client, in order to recover for the client’s injuries. In most cases, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed when a demand has been made, and the insurance company has refused to pay a fair amount. “At times, it is necessary to skip making a claim and go straight to file a personal injury lawsuit,” he says.

Over the years, Tijerina and his team have won millions of dollars for their clients. Their dedication and hard work are only a few of the qualities that have earned them a place in Three Best Rated® as one of the top-rated personal injury lawyers in McAllen, Texas.

Law Office of William W. Hurst, LLC:

Bill Hurst has been practising advocating for damaged victims of the negligent conduct of others for over 40 years. ” I’ve never had any desire to practice any other kind of law. I have achieved great satisfaction in obtaining justice for my many clients in a multitude of complex litigations,” Bill explains.

He started Law Office of William W. Hurst LLC in 1981. Over the years, the legal team of Law Office of William W. Hurst has represented thousands of clients and won over millions of dollars for them. Bill believes each case is unique and requires a personal approach.

In addition to being awarded the title of top-rated personal injury lawyer in Indianapolis by Three Best Rated, Bill has also won countless titles and awards. He has been keeping his title as a “Super Lawyer” in the Indianapolis Monthly Magazine every year since its first publication in 2004. But he considers having longtime clients as his biggest achievement. “I have had many successes over the years, but having loyal, longtime, and satisfied clients are probably my most satisfying achievement,” he says.

Bill agrees that the legal terms can be confusing even when you hire an attorney. ” If you have been injured, you may wonder how much your case is worth or what your damages are. The worse the injuries, the higher the value of the case and the greater the need for an experienced attorney,” he explains.

He further explains that most personal injury plaintiffs’ damages flow from compensatory damages. “Compensatory damages focus on making the injured party whole again, placing them in the same or similar position as before the injury,” he says.

It can be categorized into two types; General damages and special damages.

Emotion distress, loss of future income, loss of enjoyment, pain & suffering, and future medical costs- it all comes under general or non-economical damage. “Placing a price tag on the emotional and physical pain caused by a crash is not a simple task,” he says. An experienced personal injury lawyer can explain the value of your damages and fight for the compensation you deserve.

 Special damages include things like medical bills, lost wages, and property damages. Your attorney can gather evidence and represent you in the court to help you get the compensation.

Both Tijerina and Bill Hurst have one thing in common. They were focused on their goals and worked hard and improved themselves every day to reach their goals. And that’s something we need to learn from them.
