“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” - Spencer Johnson
No One Told You This Would Happen
When you signed up to go overseas, you may not have been concerned with getting injured. It can make the future uncertain and can cause so much stress. Whether you were injured in Iraq, Afghanistan, or in another hot zone around the world, you need a good lawyer. If you live in Pasadena, The Woodlands, or anywhere around Houston the story is the same. You need an attorney who understands the insurance companies and their tricks and traps. It doesn't have to be us, but trust me you want a straight shooter.
The Truth Wins
Nothing is more important when handling your case, then speaking the truth. Absolutely nothing.
Look, no one wants to help out a liar. The judge is no exception to this rule.
You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects you’re not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.
Prepare to Tell the Truth
Telling the truth may not be as easy as you would think or hope. This is because the DBA insruance companies know that good crebility wins DBA cases for claimants. So they do everything in their power to delegitimize you in front of the judge so that they win. This means that telling the detailed truth about your case just got a lot harder.
With that in mind, take the time to research your case. Learn about the DBA, the DBA law system, the DBA insurance companies and all their tricks and traps and be prepared for whatever they throw at you. You can start with the basics with my FREE BOOK, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve.
This book will go through everything you need to know and do in order to win your DBA case with honesty and integrity. You can see the dozens of other folks that my book has helped here on Amazon.
The Problem with Hiring Local
Hiring a workers' compensation lawyer from Houston would be ideal. But the problem with that is that local lawyer probably doesn't know how complex and intense the DBA law system can get. They may get overwhelmed with all the obstacles, twists and turns that present themselves when you are dealing with a DBA claim. This will end in one of two way, the Houston-based lawyer will drop your case or they will settle for far less than you deserve. And both of those outcomes lead to a relatively bleak future for you and your family.
Instead look outside the Texas state lines, past the Houston city boundaries, and find the best DBA lawyer in the country. Or why not the world? You want to win don't you? So find the best DBA lawyer to give you that edge.
