Hands-On, Personalized Legal Representation.

After you have been injured in an accident, you are likely to be overwhelmed with both medical and financial issues. On their own, these are difficult to handle. They are even worse when your injuries were caused by someone else. The law gives you the right to take legal action against that person to obtain financial compensation for all the damages that you suffered.You do not have to bear these costs on your own. This is where we come in as personal injury lawyers.

Personal injuries can occur in practically every part of your daily life and at any moment. You do not even have to be awake to suffer a personal injury. You can be hurt when you get into a car or walk into a grocery store.

You Can Hold Someone Else Legally Accountable When They Have Harmed You

Other people and companies do not have an unlimited right to do whatever they want. They owe you a duty to act reasonably, whether they know you or not. They can take on this duty when they sell you something, rent you a home, or even by being in proximity to you on the road. If they fail to uphold this duty, they can be legally obligated to pay you. It does not matter whether they know you or have never seen you before in their lives. Those who have harmed others with their actions can be made to pay.

Common Types of Personal Injuries

Here are some examples of personal injuries that could lead to compensation:

  • Car accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Product liability
  • Slip and fall
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Wrongful death

Call us today at (512) 444-0025 or contact us online to schedule a time to discuss your case. The consultation is free, and you owe us nothing unless you win your case.

Examples of Negligence in Personal Injury Claims

While these seem to be a very diverse area of legal cases, the guiding principle behind them is the same. In every personal injury case, you will need to prove that someone else was negligent. This is a legal term of art. It means that someone else did something that was unreasonable under the circumstances. Here are some examples of others’ negligence that could cause you personal injury:

  • Running a red light and hitting you at an intersection
  • Selling you a defective product that injured you
  • Failing to clean up a spill in a store aisle, causing you to slip and fall
  • Striking you with their car when you are walking because they are texting while driving

The other common example in practically every personal injury case is the presence of an insurance company. It does not matter what type of insurance company with whom you are dealing. If they need to write a check for their policyholder’s actions, they will treat you the exact same every time. An insurance company will use every trick at its disposal to either avoid paying a claim or write as small of a check as it can. They can engage in deception or outright pressure to enrich themselves at your expense by underpaying your claim or not paying it at all.

What You Need in Every Personal Injury Case

The personal injury process is not meant to be easy for those who have been injured. This is intentional on the part of the insurance company. You need to come to the table with three things:

  • Proof that someone else is responsible for your injuries
  • Proof of your damages
  • Someone has the experience and aggressiveness to fight for you when an insurance company wants to compromise your legal rights

This is why a personal injury lawyer can help you as you fight for financial compensation. Insurance companies love to try to put one over on people who are representing themselves in order to save money. They may deny the claim altogether or refuse to make you a reasonable settlement offer. Hiring an experienced attorney will put you on an equal footing with the insurance company. It can also help you file a more effective lawsuit if that is where you need to take your case.

Common questions

Frequently
Asked Questions

Over the years, we’ve found that there are a handful of very common, yet very important questions people have, when considering whether or not they should hire a personal injury attorney. Here are answers to some of our most Frequently Asked Questions.

view all questions

In general, the answer is the sooner the better. In major car accidents, for example, a case can be won or lost in the days immediately following the wreck. Time is of the essence, especially if the responsible party has their own legal representation.

In reality, you shouldn’t. You have just suffered a traumatic event and you need an experienced representative. The most important thing to know is that you should never sign insurance forms immediately following an accident. Doing so can limit your ability to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies have a formula to determine how much they are going to offer you based on the circumstances of your accident. That number is almost always too low to cover your losses. After all, an insurance company is a business, and they’re trying to save as much money as possible.

Every case has its own timeline and it really does depend on your particular set of circumstances. Cases involving serious injuries (like broken bones, severely injured neck or back, injuries requiring surgery) can take months to reach a conclusion. Stay away from attorneys who offer you a quick result, especially without knowing the details of your case. If your injuries are severe, then your case will take a little more time and effort, but thoroughness will often result in larger recoveries.

Insurance companies approach victims when they’re at their most vulnerable and usually try to elicit information that will be harmful to their potential case. If you have sustained a major injury, then you need to make sure your legal rights are protected as soon as possible. An experienced personal injury attorney can not only advise you of your legal rights, but they can step in to protect you from insurance companies. Most importantly, those who have representation fare much better in receiving compensation than those who choose to go it alone.

Our firm believes that if someone’s negligence caused you to become injured, they should be made to pay for your losses. We have spent more than two decades working with the victims of car accidents to ensure that they are able to look forward to a brighter future not just for themselves, but for their loved ones as well.

When you decide to work with us, we will review every last detail of your accident, including witness statements, police reports, photographs, videos, and the physical damage to the car. If necessary, we will consult with expert witnesses who will be able to reconstruct your accident to show exactly what happened. Then, we will present every legal option available to you so that you can decide what is best for you and your family. We will use our passion, knowledge, and experience to obtain the best settlement or verdict for you.
