WHY HAVE HUDSON LAW FIRM HANDLE YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?
NO FEE UNLESS WE RECOVER MONEY FOR YOU – We handle auto accident and other personal injury claims on a contingency-fee basis such that we only get paid if we recover money for you. Our fee and any costs will only be taken out of the eventual recovery in a claim settlement or judgment collected.

NO FEE TAKEN FROM PROPERTY DAMAGE PAYMENTS – Unlike some Dallas auto accident lawyers, we do not take any fee percentage for assisting our clients in collecting property damage payments. We know you need that money to find replacement transportation. We help our clients maximize the amount they get when their car is totaled in a car accident. Many times, an attorney is needed just to get the other driver’s auto insurance to act swiftly to repair or replace your damaged vehicle and to provide a rental car in the meantime. We are very good at this work we do at no extra fee to our clients.

GET MONEY IN YOUR POCKET NOW - PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION (PIP) – We can assist you with getting money in your pocket soon after the auto accident. We review your auto insurance policy to determine if you have coverage for Personal Injury Protection (PIP). PIP is a claim that can be made on your own insurance company policy to help alleviate some the medical bills, medical co-payments, and lost wages until your personal injury claim can be concluded after you are done treating. Most of our clients do not realize a PIP claim is not supposed to increase your auto insurance premiums when the car wreck was not your fault. Since we know how an auto accident injury affects your ability to work, we assist our clients in getting their auto insurance company to pay PIP benefits as soon as possible.
DISTINCT FROM THE REST – FORMER ATTORNEY FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES – We understand that a personal injury claim is a fight against an insurance company, which wants to pay the least amount possible or completely deny your claim. Thus, while accidents may happen, your choice of which Carrollton personal injury attorney to use should not be an accident. Many Dallas car wreck attorneys do not know how an adjuster thinks or even how the insurance industry works. Carrollton car accident attorney, Joel Hudson, is keenly aware of how to fight the big insurance company because he has worked for both sides regarding personal injury claims. Before starting Hudson Law Firm, Mr. Hudson used to negotiate injury cases mostly on the side of defending the large insurance company. While working for some of the larger law firms in Dallas, Plano, Frisco, and Fort Worth, Mr. Hudson gained extensive experience defending some of the largest insurance companies in the world. Therefore, Mr. Hudson knows the ins-and-outs of how insurance adjusters think and how insurance companies operate. Now working on the individual claimant’s side as a Carrollton auto accident attorney, Mr. Hudson knows what an insurance adjuster must have to document the claim file before they can justify to their boss as to why they are paying a lofty amount to settle your accident injury claim. Mr. Hudson uses his inside knowledge of the insurance industry to systematically get you the maximum settlement you deserve. We know that you have plenty of choices in selecting a Carrollton auto accident attorney, truck accident lawyer, wrongful death attorney, slip and fall attorney, or premises liability lawyer. With his inside knowledge, Mr. Hudson is distinct from the rest and very good at what he does.
DO NOT LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE – If you handle your own injury claim, how do you know if you are leaving money on the table? We understand that there are insurance companies who will tell you that you are not entitled to compensation (or more than they say) for your injuries, but we know better. Heck, we know that many insurance adjusters try to make you feel like your injury is your fault. Mr. Hudson has worked in the Dallas-area personal injury field since 1998. Mr. Hudson knows how to evaluate your personal injury claim, whether any settlement has been offered yet or not, to determine whether better results will be gained by using a Carrollton injury attorney. While our clients have the ultimate decision whether to accept a settlement offer, Mr. Hudson will personally analyze all aspects of your accident claim through a legal lens and give you his best advice based on the facts of your injury claim. Similarly, he will look at your case from all perspectives to discover all the claims you can possibly pursue, many of which you likely are not aware (and of which the insurance adjuster will not make you aware). Many of our clients have been surprised to hear about other types of claims for additional recovery, for both them personally and for their family members, that they only discovered after calling our injury firm for advice. You may make a permanent, costly mistake in settling with the insurance company alone. We recommend not signing a Release of Claims until you have talked to a Carrollton injury lawyer about your auto accident, truck accident, wrongful death, slip and fall, premises liability (improper property maintenance), nursing home abuse or neglect, or other personal injury claim.

FIND YOU A DOCTOR WHEN NO HEALTH INSURANCE / LARGE DEDUCTIBLE –We understand that you are hurt and need medical treatment as soon as possible. However, many clients either do not have health insurance or the deductible and/or co-payments are too large to afford medical treatment. Thus, we work closely with many excellent doctors, radiology specialists, orthopedic surgeons, and medical facilities in the metroplex who will treat our clients now without payment up front. The doctor understands that their bill will eventually be paid out of any later settlement we attain on behalf of the client.
INSURANCE LOOKS AFTER ITS BEST INTERESTS, NOT YOURS – Insurance companies that insure negligent drivers take advantage of innocent people who are injured. Even if the insurance adjuster is being nice, the adjuster is not looking after your best interests. Insurance adjusters are trained to get injured people to settle early, before they truly know the extent of their injuries. By the time injured people later realize they actually need further treatment or possibly a surgery, it is too late because the injured person was required to sign a Release of All Claims. Many injury claimants lose sight of the fact that insurance companies are in the “for-profit” business of paying the least amount possible. When dealing with their own auto insurance company, many injury claimants lose sight of the fact that their own insurance company is also in the “for-profit’ business. Instead of working with the profit-driven insurance company yourself, we will look after your best interest in advising you whether to accept an insurance settlement offer or whether you should have a Carrollton personal injury attorney maximize your claim.
WE MAKE HOUSE CALLS – When you are injured by someone else’s negligence, we understand that your injuries and/or lack of replacement transportation may prevent you from being able to travel to the office of a Carrollton car accident lawyer. Therefore, upon request, we will actually make a house call to come visit with you about your Dallas-area injury claim in the comfort of your own home. We have made house calls for Dallas personal injury, Carrollton personal injury, Plano personal injury, Frisco personal injury, Lewisville personal injury, Denton personal injury, The Colony personal injury, Farmers Branch personal injury, Flower Mound personal injury, Richardson personal injury, Addison personal injury, Arlington personal injury, Hurst personal injury, Euless personal injury, Bedford personal injury, Fort Worth personal injury and in other DFW metroplex cities.
"Personal injury really is a battle with an insurance company. We believe that you should not have to also battle your attorney."
PERSONAL FIRM ATTENTION, WITH LARGE FIRM EXPERIENCE – Nothing is more frustrating than not knowing what is going on in your case, which in turn makes you feel like your case is not being worked on or not handled properly. You are already hurt and have plenty to deal with from your auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, drunk driver accident, wrongful death in your family, slip and fall, or other personal injury. We believe your lawyer should not add to your pain or frustration. We have found that our clients are happier with continuous communication, which, in turn, leads to a more efficient process and a larger accident injury settlement. When you chose us as your injury firm, you will get a copy of every document, every communication, and every offer in your Carrollton car wreck claim. We keep you informed about all developments, not only because you deserve to know, but also so you can help us help you along the way. We will explain all aspects of the Lewisville auto injury claim process in terms that you can understand, not a bunch of legalese.
Personal injury really is a battle with an insurance company. We believe that you should not have to also battle your car accident attorney. Many of our clients have transferred their case to our Carrollton personal injury firm because they would leave six messages for their previous attorney over about a month, but yet, they never received a return phone call. We are a Carrollton personal injury law firm, not a law factory. When you have a question, we take your call. If the person you are trying to reach is out at that moment, we schedule a time to return your call the same day. If you have a legal question for an attorney, you will get to speak with an attorney and not just a legal secretary. Let us have the opportunity to handle your personal injury case and you will notice the difference. We put Personal back into Personal Injury Law. Hudson Law Firm was established in 2007 by Carrollton personal injury attorney, Joel Hudson, formerly an attorney for some of the larger law firms in Dallas, Plano, and Fort Worth. Mr. Hudson wanted to bring the large firm experience to people who wanted a superior, senior-level attorney, but did not want the impersonal treatment of a large firm. As a Dallas-area personal injury attorney, Mr. Hudson has successfully handled many types of personal injury cases throughout the State of Texas including:
ADDITIONAL ATTORNEY BENEFITS – In our experience, we can tell you that, most times, more money will end up in the client’s pocket by using a Carrollton personal injury attorney to handle your claim, even after paying the firm’s share of any money recovered. We provide a free injury claim discussion and there is no obligation to use our car accident firm. As a matter of fact, we do not accept any case unless we can justify our firm’s fee. But, if your claim happens to be one of the few that may not benefit from using an auto accident attorney, then our Carrollton car accident lawyer will provide some pointers for you to maximize your own claim.
Another, much lesser known reason to use a Carrollton car accident attorney is the fact that we can get you a hefty reduction of any health insurance reimbursement claims made against the recovery in your case for medical bills your health insurance paid on your behalf (for most types of policies). We seek a reduction for all of our clients as an additional personal service. However, this reduction is not available to those who handle their own injury claims. Texas law allows only an injury lawyer to negotiate a reduction of the health reimbursement claim. This is because technically the client hired an accident attorney to collect the health insurance company’s money, thus requiring the health insurance company to pay their share of the injury firm’s fee.
You should not be made to feel that your injury is your fault! Our busy clients find peace of mind in having a knowledgeable Carrollton car wreck attorney communicate with the unfriendly, uncaring insurance adjusters on their behalf, so our clients can concentrate on getting back to a healthy, normal life faster.
We encourage you to learn more about why we do what we do.
