Dallas Personal Injury Attorney Michael Grossman
For those looking to take the first step in pursuing their wrongful death or personal injury claim in Dallas, we can point you in the right direction. In this article, our attorneys here at Grossman Law Offices will explain a little about our experience handling personal injury cases in Dallas, we’ll talk about the ins and outs of how cases in Dallas work, and finally, we’ll discuss how they differ from cases in other cities.
Where to file your claim.
In order to file a claim, you’ve got to know where to go. In Dallas, it does not matter if you file your claim in district or county courts. Both courts are well-equipped to take your claim and begin the process. Historically speaking though, the Dallas District Court is the one that handles the bigger, more complex cases. Matters of contract dispute, wrongful death, and personal injury cases are largely handled in the district court, but again, you can file in either. No matter where you file, your case will more than likely be heard at the Dallas County Courthouse in downtown. Luckily, Dallas County Courts are well-equipped and well-staffed with clerks that have extensive experience dealing with complex cases.
What to expect when it comes to Dallas judges.
Dallas has very experienced judges when it comes to sensitive cases like wrongful death and personal injury. This affords them the experience to handle thorny issues with evidence or difficult legal issues should they arise. Most Dallas judges run a tight ship, and rarely allow plaintiffs or defendants to drag out cases for prolonged periods of time.
In smaller towns and counties throughout Texas, you may not get to pick your judge, but you will generally have a good idea as to which judge is going to hear your case because there are so few judges in these small areas. Dallas County has a massive stable of judges to pick from, so predicting which judge will hear your case is next to impossible.
How Dallas County juries may see your case.
Dallas juries are largely seen as much more favorable to wrongful death and personal injury victims than a smaller, more rural county jury. The jury pool is comprised of much more diverse groups of people, and as a result, the jury awards tend to be higher than they would be in a small-town court.
Why the size of the Dallas County Bar can be a good thing.
The Dallas County Bar (a group of lawyers who practice in Dallas) is much, much larger than many other places. As a result, judges rarely play favorites like they might with a small handful of lawyers in a small town court. A lawyer in Dallas County would be much better suited to help navigate the many possible courts your wrongful death or personal injury suit could be litigated in.
