Personal Injury FAQs
Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
The State of Texas allows injured persons to pursue claims against those responsible for their injuries in multiple situations. So long as another person or entity has caused you to suffer harm, it’s possible you have a case.
Many injury cases are based on negligence. Common negligence cases include motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, workplace accidents, and medical malpractice. Other cases involve intentional torts like assault. Some cases such as dog bites and product defects involve strict liability.
If you’re not sure whether you have a case, we encourage you to reach out for a free consultation. During that meeting, we can look into what happened and help determine your best course of action. You also won’t be under any obligation to hire us after the consult.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Most personal injury lawyers in San Antonio and throughout Texas work on a contingency fee basis. Under this fee arrangement, you won’t owe any upfront costs to hire an experienced attorney after an accident – and their payment is contingent on the outcome of your case.
If your attorney secures a favorable settlement or verdict for you, you’ll owe them an agreed-upon percentage (typically between 33–40%) of your award. You won’t owe any attorney’s fees if your case is unsuccessful.
A contingency fee agreement allows accident victims to retain experienced legal counsel without worrying about the costs. This is beneficial if you’re dealing with medical bills and other expenses while missing work.
During your free case assessment, we’ll review our contingency fee agreement with you to ensure that you understand the terms and what to expect.
What Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?
Economic damages and non-economic damages are “compensatory.” They compensate you for losses after an accident. Examples include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
- Mental conditions such as PTSD and anxiety
- Decreased enjoyment of life
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Repair costs
- Scarring or disfigurement
Punitive damages are not considered compensatory damages. Rather, these are meant to “punish” the at-fault party for their conduct. They are only awarded in personal injury cases involving extreme conduct, such as malice, fraud, or gross negligence.
How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Lawsuit After an Accident in Texas?
You’ll generally have two years to file a personal injury claim in Texas. This is Texas’s statute of limitations. If you submit your claim after the deadline passes, you will most likely lose your chance at pursuing compensation.
Keep in mind that there are exceptions to the statute of limitations, meaning you might have additional time to file your claim in some cases. Contact us today if you would like further clarification on the amount of time you have to file your case.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Many factors can influence how much your case is worth. These include the following:
Type of injuries the victim has sustained, and their severity
Age of the victim at the time of the accident
How long and to what extent the victim will be kept out of work
Availability of evidence to prove the victim’s claim
- Whether the victim shares any blame for the accident
Cases involving more significant, debilitating injuries tend to be worth the most. We can help you get a sense of the value of your claim and bring in experts to help us value complex damages. Read More
