Personal Injury & Work Accidents
If someone has caused injury or harm to your person or property, you may want to seek legal advice in order to identify your legal rights, determine damages and obtain compensation.
What Can I Gain by Filing?
Injuries invariably come at a cost — not only of the financial variety, but they are often a cost to your quality of life and mental well-being. By seeking and gaining recompense for all types of cost, you may be able to cover the loss of wages, medical expenses, lost wages, future income losses, and “pain and suffering” — both physically and mentally. Additionally, damages can compensate for disfigurement and disability which has resulted from the negligence of another party.
What are the Legal Fees in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Typically, we will accept a personal injury case on a contingency basis — meaning, simply, that if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. You do not pay anything out of your pocket. There are some exceptions in regard to hard costs like court filing and service fees, but those are items that can be discussed with the attorney as they relate to your particular case.
Where will the Case be Filed?
In personal injury cases, it is almost always filed in the county in which the accident occurred.
How Long Can I Wait Before Filing?
The statutes of limitations, or “deadlines” for filing a personal injury case, differ depending on the type of case. But generally speaking, in Texas you have two years from the date you were injured, or discovered you were injured.
