Only lawyers that are board certified can call themselves specialists in an area of law.

To become board certified in personal injury trial law, you need substantial involvement in that area of law. You need at least ten cases tried to verdict as lead counsel, with at least five jury trials to verdict. To become board certified, you must provide references of other attorney’s or judges that are familiar with your capabilities. You must also pass a written exam in personal injury trial law. Only ten percent of all lawyers in Texas are board certified. For more information about Texas board certified lawyers, go to www.tbls.com.
Health insurance companies accept premiums in return for the risk of your future injury. Insurance companies don’t return your premiums if for any given month you don’t need health care. And that is fair, as long as they pay your claims for months that your do need health care. If you are injured in a car wreck or other accident, health insurance companies must pay your medical bills. But buried in the fine print of many health insurance policies are subrogation clauses. Those clauses provide that health insurance companies get paid back from the settlement or judgment proceeds from an injury claim.
