Are all Tyler Personal Injury Lawyers the Same?
People often ask me, are all Tyler personal injury lawyers the same, and the answer is no. You see, in the state of Texas, any attorney licensed to practice law can call themselves a personal injury attorney. The difference with Roberts and Roberts is that Randy Roberts and myself are board certified in personal injury trial law. Now, what does that mean? It means that we had to go to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and show them, number one, we’ve been specialized in personal injury trial law cases for years. Number two, we were competent and had taken personal injury cases to a jury trial. Third that we continued to stay abreast of the ever-changing laws that affect personal injury cases. We attended seminars and courses to inform us how the laws had changed and how those changes affected our clients. Last, we had to take a comprehensive test that shows that we had thoroughly mastered the laws and the procedures for handling personal injury cases. When we past those tests then and only then were we considered board certified attorneys to handle personal injury trial law cases. Of all the attorneys in Texas, only 1.5 percent are actually Board Certified to be personal injury trial law attorneys. So, in the future, if you, a family member, someone you know is injured in an automobile accident, motorcycle accident or collision with an 18 wheeler, you need to consider the attorney and the law firm you’re hiring. Are they a law firm that advertises they handle personal injury cases, or are they a law firm made up of board certified personal injury attorneys?
