When Should You Contact An Attorney?
We offer a free consultation with an S.D. Matthews & Associates attorney to have a frank discussion about your rights under Texas, Arkansas or Louisiana law. We generally recommend you consult an attorney after you have been injured in an accident, and particularly if:
- An attorney or insurance company wants you to sign any documents, especially if the document is referred to as or entitled release or settlement statement.
- An attorney or insurance agent wants you to provide a statement, recorded statement or deposition.
- You have missed time from work and are not being compensated for your lost wages or reduced income while suffering from your injuries.
- You are not being compensated for medical bills incurred due to your accident.
- You have suffered injuries for which your physician has recommended surgery or proposed a course of future medical care.
- Your physician advises your ailments are likely to be permanent injuries.
- Your spouse has not been offered compensation for his or her resulting loss of comfort, society, conjugal relations and support while you have been recovering from your injuries. This is called loss of consortium, and your spouse is entitled to compensation for his/her loss under Nebraska law.

No Recovery, No Fee: Contingency Fee Contracts Available
We understand that it is difficult, if not impossible, to make monthly payments to an attorney when you have been injured in a traumatic accident and you are unable to return to your regular job duties. Medical bills mount and, without income due to inability to work, injury victims are often hard-pressed to make ends meet.
For this reason, we represent clients on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay us unless a settlement, verdict or another recovery is secured for you.
