Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

They will level the playing field.

Most likely, an insurance company will be on the other side of your claim.

Insurance companies will be represented by experienced attorneys, and they will employ adjusters, investigators, and other professionals to challenge your claim.

Hiring an attorney evens the odds and gives you access to your own winning resources. Instead of going up against the insurance company alone, you’ll have legal representation to protect your rights, look out for your best interests, and help you avoid mistakes that hurt your chances of recovering compensation.

They will protect you from blame.

Texas has modified comparative fault rules. Under these rules, your compensation will be reduced if you are partially at fault for an accident.

Moreover, you are barred from recovering damages if you are mostly at fault. Insurance companies use these rules to minimize their liability — and they may blame you for an accident that wasn’t your fault if they can get away with it. Your lawyer can protect you from unfounded accusations of comparative fault.

They can gather evidence showing who is liable for your injuries and preserve your right to full compensation.

 

They can help you understand the value of your claim.

If you want to get the most money possible from your injury claim, you need to understand its value.

The insurance company won’t tell you; in fact, they will try to get you to settle for as little money as possible — preferably before you’ve had time to speak to an attorney.

A personal injury attorney at our firm can identify and calculate your damages. They can also bring in experts in finance, medicine, and other disciplines to help calculate complex losses.

Once we arrive at a fair value for your damages, we will negotiate an adequate settlement on your behalf.

If the at-fault party refuses to settle, we can take your case before a judge/jury.

We will handle all aspects of your case.

We will help you navigate the claims process, from filings and investigations to negotiations and litigation.

Their involvement will help maximize the value of your claim to ensure that you pay for any costs associated with your accident.

Additionally, it will give you time to rest and recover from your injuries — since they’ll be the ones focusing on your case.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

If someone else injured you intentionally or through carelessness, you might have a case.

Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. A person is negligent when they act carelessly and injure another person.

Negligence claims include accidents involving motor vehicles, slip and falls, workplace injuries, and many other incidents.

Some cases arise from strict liability incidents. In these cases, you don’t have to prove the at-fault party acted negligently. You merely have to prove they engaged in certain unlawful conduct that caused you to get hurt. Dog bite cases are one example of a possible strict liability case.

The best way to determine whether you have a claim is to contact an attorney.

Personal Injury FAQ

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Most personal injury attorneys in Dallas, Texas, work on a contingency fee basis. This means they do not charge upfront or hourly fees for representation. Rather, the attorney’s fee is contingent upon the result of your case.

If your attorney is successful, they will take a pre-agreed-upon percentage of your settlement or verdict as payment for the representation. This percentage usually ranges from 33% to 40%, depending on the case. If your lawyer does not recover an award for you, you will not owe any attorney fees. Contingency fees keep representation affordable for individuals who may be experiencing financial hardship due to an accident.

Additionally, most lawyers offer free consultations to help personal injury victims understand their rights and options. There is minimal financial risk to seeking legal help.

How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of your case will depend on the specific facts of your case.

Law firms can only tell you what your case is worth if they know the facts.

The following factors will likely influence your case’s value:

  • The cost of your medical bills
  • Whether you’ll require future medical treatment and care
  • The extent of your lost wages due to time missed from work
  • Whether you’ve suffered a diminished earning capacity due to your injuries
  • The pain and suffering you’ve experienced
  • Available insurance coverages
  • Whether you contributed to the accident
  • The strength of your evidence

Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you get a sense of your claim’s value during a free consultation. They can assist you in identifying and calculating your damages.

And they can even bring in experts in finance, medicine, and other specialties to help evaluate your losses.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit After an Accident in Texas?

You typically have two years to file a lawsuit after an accident in Texas. The same timeline applies in wrongful death cases. The clock will usually start on the date of the accident.

There are some exceptions to this two-year statute of limitations, such as claims involving children or government entities. Therefore, you should consult an attorney for help determining the deadlines for your personal injury claim.

What Types of Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?

Injured victims are usually entitled to two main forms of damages from the one responsible for their injuries.

Economic damages compensate for financial losses tied to your injuries.

Non-economic damages cover losses that are more personal than financial in nature.

Examples of economic losses include:

    • Medical expenses (past and future)

    • Lost wages

    • Diminished earning potential

    • Physical therapy and rehab

Examples of non-economic losses include:

    • Pain and suffering

    • Emotional distress and anxiety

    • PTSD

    • Scarring and disfigurement

    • Reduced quality of life

    • Loss of enjoyment of life

    • Loss of consortium

Whereas the damages listed above compensate a victim for their losses, punitive damages punish a responsible individual for gross negligence, malice, or fraud. These types of damages are rarely awarded. DUI crashes are one case that might qualify for punitive damages.

What If I Was Partly At Fault?

In Texas, you can still recover compensation if you are partially at fault for an accident. Texas utilizes modified comparative fault rules to apportion liability for accidents in which there are multiple blameworthy parties. However, these rules have a 51% bar.

If you are 50% or less at fault, your damages will be reduced to account for your percentage of blame. For example, your award will be reduced by 20% if you are found 20% liable for your accident. But if you are 51% or more at fault (mostly liable), you will not be able to recover any compensation.

You should never assume you are partly at fault. Additionally, you should never admit you are liable to an insurer or anyone else. There is no way to tell how much blame — if any — you share without an investigation of the facts.

We can help you understand your rights if you are partly at fault. They can also work to minimize your liability so recover as much money as possible.
