Non-injury accident lawyer services

When a person gets into an accident that’s not their fault, they may be able to claim compensation even though they weren’t injured. However, they may need the help of a non-injury accident lawyer to do so.

Unfortunately, many victims of negligent accidents dismiss the possibility of filing a claim because they believe they haven’t been injured. In addition, insurance agents often abusively convince victims that they weren’t injured and have no right to sue.

At George Salinas Injury Lawyers, we know that these scenarios are unfair to victims, which is why we offer a free consultation to examine your case and guide you through different legal options.

A non-injury accident victim may be able to get compensation benefits, such as:

  • Coverage of the necessary clinical studies to rule out any injuries. 
  • Reimbursement of lost wages in case the accident has caused psychological or emotional suffering that prevents you from working.
  • Compensation for damages related to pain and suffering (including conditions such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder). 
  • Punitive damages (if the case goes to trial and the jury determines that there was an express intent to injure the victim, the at-fault party would be required to pay extra punitive damages).

How can a non-injury car accident lawyer help you?

In order to win a car accident case, it’s necessary to gather evidence to build a strong case that conclusively proves that the other party was at fault for the accident.

Once a solid case has been built, which usually requires specialized legal knowledge and the collaboration of experts, the amount of compensation must be calculated and negotiated with an insurance company. At all times, we defend victims’ rights and work to get the greatest possible benefits for them.

According to Texas Department of Transportation data, 1 motor vehicle accident is reported in the state every 57 seconds. Therefore, dozens of drivers every day may find themselves in need of hiring a non-injury accident attorney whose services include the following.

Getting specialized medical care

After an accident, you may feel fine and believe that you weren’t injured. However, you should consider two issues:

  1. When you’re involved in an accident, your body may not feel pain from the adrenaline. 
  2. Some injuries, especially those to internal organs and the brain, may take several days or even months to become apparent.

Therefore, an experienced accident attorney can help get the victim specialized medical attention to rule out any type of injury or to get a diagnosis of possible complications.

Evaluating emotional and psychological suffering

An accident is a traumatic experience for everyone involved. Just because a victim  didn’t suffer bodily injury doesn’t mean that they may not suffer emotional and psychological injuries, such as:

  • Stress 
  • Distress
  • Depression
  • Development of phobias
  • Panic attacks

As part of your compensation benefits, you may be eligible for an amount to prevent and combat any emotional or psychological suffering resulting from the accident. If this condition prevents the victim from continuing to work, reimbursement is also required for all wages that the victim has lost and will continue to lose.

Building a strong case

An expert legal team includes investigators and experts from different fields (such as mechanics) who go to the accident scene to gather evidence, such as:

  1. Surveys of the vehicles involved to determine any mechanical failures. 
  2. Surveys of the roads and highways to determine if they were in poor condition. 
  3. Interviews with eyewitnesses to document their testimonies. 
  4. Study the police report on the accident
  5. Search for possible videographic materials that may have recorded or photographed the circumstances of the accident.

Based on all the evidence gathered, a strong case is made that convincingly demonstrates the guilt of the other party.

 Calculating the amount of compensation to be claimed

Based on the evidence obtained, the pecuniary damages and the medical diagnoses, an attorney will calculate the amount of compensation to be claimed. In cases of accident without apparent injury, it’s advisable to wait for a period of time to determine if late-onset symptoms appear.

Negotiating with insurance companies

Once the amount of compensation has been determined, it’s sent to the insurance company, which has approximately four weeks to respond. Their response may involve:

  1. Accepting the demanded amount and paying it. 
  2. Making a counteroffer (in this case, a negotiation process begins where the legal team works to get an agreement beneficial to the victim’s interests). 
  3. Rejecting the compensation and any further negotiations (in this case, it’s necessary to sue and work to win the lawsuit in court during a trial).

Accompanying the victim and their family

To build a winning case, it’s essential that the victim feels confident in their attorney, and this confidence begins with language. That’s why it’s necessary that their lawyer speaks Spanish and provides warm and empathetic attention. For example, our attorneys at George Salinas Injury Lawyers always consult with clients about their different legal options in order to make the best decisions together.

What should you do after a car accident?

If you were involved in a car accident, there are a number of steps that can make it easier to win your compensation case:

  1. Call George Salinas Injury Lawyers at 210-225-0909.
  2. Don’t state that you feel fine (even if you do, there are injuries that take days or even months to manifest themselves). 
  3. Take photographs of the accident scene. 
  4. Ask for names and phone numbers of the others involved in the accident. 
  5. Ask for names and telephone numbers of possible eyewitnesses.

How much will it cost you to hire non-injury accident lawyer services?

Our attorneys at George Salinas Injury Lawyers can help determine if you’re dealing with a non-injury or a late-onset injury case. Either way, we’ll take on your case and work to get you compensation.

If you wish to hire us, you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket due to a payment method called “contingency fees.” This payment structure protects the interests and finances of the victim as follows:

  • The client never has to pay out of pocket. 
  • Attorneys work the case using their own resources. 
  • Lawyers receive a small percentage of the final amount that the victim gets as compensation. 
  • With this method, the lawyers are obligated to win in order to receive payment. This guarantees that the law firm is working full time to win the victim’s case.
