Do I Have a Legitimate Personal Injury Case?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or another type of incident, you might be unsure whether or not you have a valid personal injury claim. If your injury was caused by another party’s negligent or ill-intentioned actions, you likely have the right to file an insurance claim or lawsuit against them.
The best way to find out if you have a legitimate personal injury case is to talk to an attorney in Texas. A skilled lawyer will ask you questions about your accident, your injuries, and the other parties involved in the incident. Using that information, they’ll be able to determine if you have the right to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party.
Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Lawyers in Texas Can Take On
The personal injury attorneys from our firm in Texas have experience helping people recuperate from injuries sustained in a variety of different accidents. Contact our team if you’re dealing with injuries and financial losses due to one of the following incidents:
Auto collisions can leave victims with permanent disabilities, long-term injuries, and mountains of medical bills. If you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by a negligent driver, one of our Texas personal injury attorneys can help you hold them liable for your economic and non-economic losses.
We’ll work with accident reconstruction experts to analyze the scene of the crash and find out exactly who or what caused it. Once we have the evidence we need, we’ll take your claim to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Negotiating a fair settlement can be tricky, but our lawyers will work hard to secure the offer you need to put this accident behind you.
Commercial Truck Accidents
Our Texas attorneys can also file a personal injury claim for losses sustained in commercial truck accidents. They have experience litigating cases for victims of 18-wheeler, tow truck, and semi-truck collisions. Regardless of what kind of commercial vehicle caused your accident or how severe your injuries are, our team will help you pursue compensation.
To obtain the financial remedies you’re entitled to, your lawyer must identify the party responsible for your accident. They’ll determine whether the truck driver, the truck company, a cargo loader, or a truck parts manufacturer caused the collision. Once they’ve found who’s to blame, they’ll file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer or file a personal injury lawsuit.
Victims of sexual harassment and assault deserve to hold their abusers accountable for the physical and mental damage they’ve caused. If you’ve been sexually abused, our team will work hard to bring your abuser to justice and order them to provide compensation for the trauma and pain you’ve been forced to experience.
Our personal injury attorneys from Texas have experience filing sexual abuse claims against teachers, coaches, doctors, clergy members, therapists, nursing home staff members, and a number of other individuals.
The lawyers on our team understand that sexual abuse often stems from power imbalances. We aim to use the law to hold people in positions of power liable for the awful acts they’ve committed. If you’re experiencing fear and shame from sexual assault, our firm is here to help you amplify your voice and punish your abuser for the harm they’ve done to you.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Texas
Seeking compensation through a civil claim includes several important steps. Our attorneys will complete every step and keep you informed on their progress throughout the entirety of your case. Here’s what they’ll do to secure the settlement you deserve:
To build a convincing claim, your Texas personal injury attorney will have to gather records and documents that paint a clear picture of your accident. They’ll collect witness testimonies, police reports, medical records, and any other relevant pieces of information they can find.
Your lawyer may also work with accident reconstruction experts to gain more insight into the incident you are injured in. Accident experts use evidence from car accident scenes, medical malpractice incidents, and product liability injuries to shed light on the cause of a claimant’s injury.
Once your attorney has thoroughly investigated your accident, they’ll have the information and evidence they need to identify the guilty party and build a claim that aims to hold them accountable for your injury.
Negotiate With Insurance Companies
In Texas, most personal injury claims are resolved through an insurance settlement. That being said, most insurers need a significant amount of convincing to offer sufficient compensation for all of the claimant’s losses.
Insurance companies will often start by offering a settlement that doesn’t fully compensate for the damage their client has caused. Our lawyers are trained to combat lowball offers with facts and persuasive arguments.
In the negotiating room, your attorney will refer to all of the medical bills, lost wages, and emotional hardships you’ve been forced to endure due to the guilty party’s actions. They’ll make it crystal clear to the insurance adjusters that you deserve the highest amount of compensation possible.
Go to Trial
Although most personal injury claimants in Texas get their compensation from an insurance settlement, a small percentage of the wrongfully injured will have to take their case to court to get the money they’re owed. If the at-fault party’s insurer denies your claim or refuses to increase the value of their offer, your attorney will file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
Our lawyers are closely familiar with the rules and deadlines that must be followed to file a successful civil suit in Texas. They’ll work diligently and quickly to get your lawsuit filed in a timely manner.
During your court case, your personal injury lawyer will present the evidence they’ve found, call eye-witnesses to the stand, and refer to statements from the accident reconstruction experts they’ve worked with. They’ll tie all of the facts and testimonies together with a sound argument as to why you deserve a favorable verdict.
Compensation Available to Personal Injury Victims
If your insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit is successful, you’ll receive compensation for all the losses your accident has caused. Damages available to personal injury victims in Texas include:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress
- Punitive damages
- Wrongful death damages
While it may be easy for you to identify which damages you’re eligible to receive, estimating the amount of compensation you’re owed for each loss might be more difficult. Fortunately, a lawyer from our firm can help you assign a monetary value to each loss you’ve suffered.
Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Texas
Acting fast is crucial when pursuing financial remedies via a personal injury claim. Getting your claim filed quickly will show insurers that your case is legitimate and that your injuries have had a serious and immediate impact on your life.
Taking swift action will also help you down the road if your case requires a court trial. That’s because Texas has a statute of limitations that personal injury plaintiffs must abide by. According to Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.003, lawsuits must be filed within two years of the plaintiff’s date of injury.
If you delay hiring a lawyer, you could miss the legal deadline for personal injury lawsuits and, consequently, be barred from receiving the damages you need. However, there are always exceptions to the rule, so don’t lose hope if you believe your deadline has passed. Instead, contact a Texas personal injury attorney today and see what your legal options are.
We won’t be able to tell you how much your claim is worth until we know more about your accident, injuries, and losses. However, we can give you an idea of how much you might receive from a claim by showing you the settlements our lawyers have won for other personal injury victims in Texas.

We’ll also gather evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the guilty party’s negligence was the sole cause of the explosion or fire.

If you’ve been injured while working, it’s important that you seek medical attention and notify your employer ASAP. Texas law requires that injured workers file an accident report with their employer within 80days of their injury date.

Our Attorneys Will Represent You for a Contingency Fee
We pride ourselves on our ability to offer world-class legal services to individuals and businesses regardless of their economic standing. Our personal injury attorneys represent clients from Texas on a contingency fee basis. That means they’ll take a portion of your settlement in exchange for their advice, counsel, and advocacy.
The average contingency fee usually amounts to one-third or 33% of the client’s overall compensation. Remember, this fee is contingent on the success of your claim, so you won’t have to pay your attorney out-of-pocket if you lose your case,
As a consequence of contingency-fee representation, your attorney will be highly motivated to knock your claim out of the park. In other words, they’ll work extra hard because they know that their salary depends on the strength of your case. If you have any questions about our contingency fee policy, please contact us or ask us during your free consultation.
