Take What You Read On Personal Injury Websites (Including This One) With A Grain Of Salt

Never trust what you read on an attorney’s website — including this one.

I was running a Google search for something, and I stumbled upon a website from another personal injury attorney in Dallas.  As I glanced at it, I noticed that something was terribly wrong.  Some of the advice he was giving was just wrong.  And it wasn’t a matter where we had a difference of opinion — that happens.  His website contained information saying that the law was X when the law changed many years ago.

I don’t want to generalize, but I think it’s safe to say that many  (or perhaps even most) personal injury websites aren’t written by lawyers, but are written by marketing companies.  Many times, these companies aren’t experts in the law, and they make mistakes. 

But even when websites are written by lawyers, problems can still arise.  I’ve written every page on this website.  But often, the law changes.  I try to go back and edit the significant pages, but I can’t go back and edit every blog post that’s been written about every little change in the law.

That’s why it’s so important to call an attorney.  While we strive to provide good, general information to help you make better informed decisions about whether you need to proceed on a claim, and how you need to proceed, sometimes the law changes.  When something comes up for you, call us.  That way, you know you’re getting the best information available, and we can tailor advice to your situation instead of you hoping that some general rule applies to your situation.
