Personal Injury FAQs
When is the right time to contact a personal injury lawyer?
The first thing to do after being injured is to get proper medical care. The second thing to do is to contact a personal injury lawyer. Do not delay. There are often deadlines that have to be met, evidence that needs to be gathered and documentation that needs to be compiled. The sooner you begin, the sooner you get the compensation you need. You certainly do not want to procrastinate and then find out that your otherwise valid case no longer qualifies because there was a statute of limitations. Let us help today.
What Do I Do After An Accident?
After any accident, whether you think you could make a personal injury claim or not, you should always immediately seek medical attention. When you get to the emergency room, you can take photos of your injuries or ask someone else to take them for you. Once you have recovered enough, you should contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your options. They can advise you on what to do and how you can start the process of filing a lawsuit and making a claim.
What Can I Claim For In Personal Injury Lawsuit?
When claiming compensation for an injury, you can claim for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are tangible bills and costs, such as the price of medical bills, both now and in the future, or the cost of replacing damaged items. You can also claim non-economic damages for distress, pain, suffering and general life upheaval.
Is There A Time Limit For Filing A Personal Injury Claim?
Each state has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims. In Texas, this period is two years. During this time, you can make a claim for damages from the person or organization deemed to be responsible. While you can file a case after this period, the defendant will most likely be able to get a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that you have exceeded the time limit in your state.
How much is my personal injury/accident case worth?
This all depends on the type of case and the extent of your injuries. Some people just need to cover their immediate hospital bills so they’re not in debt. Others have life-changing injuries and will never work again, so they may need millions to cover all of those lost earnings and the need for life-long care. Things like age, types of injuries, extent of said injuries and likelihood of recovery are all going to factor in. Each case is unique, and we can begin discussing yours at your consultation. Rest assured that our experienced team knows how to work hard for you and fight for the compensation you deserve.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
Personal injury cases generally hinge on negligence and fault. If someone acted in a negligent manner and was at fault for injuries that you suffered, then you deserve just compensation for those injuries. This compensation can help cover your medical bills, make up for lost wages, reimburse you for pain and suffering, and much more. Types of injury cases that we can handle include dog bites, slip-and-fall cases, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents and more.
