Our San Marcos personal injury attorneys are prepared to represent you in many types of cases, including those involving:

  • Car accidents. When you suffer injuries in a car accident, you may have a personal injury claim if the collision was caused by another driver’s negligence. All drivers owe other people on the road a duty of care when they get behind the wheel. To collect damages from an at-fault driver, however, you must be able to prove that the negligent driver was primarily responsible for causing the crash. This can be accomplished by demonstrating that the other driver failed to behave as a reasonably prudent person would have in similar circumstances. For example, if the driver was excessively speeding, texting while driving, or breaking some other traffic law that led directly to the collision, then they can likely be held liable for any resulting injuries.
  • Truck accidents. Motor vehicle accidents involving trucks can be especially devastating due to the sheer size and weight of these mammoth vehicles. Trucks are often several times heavier than cars, and their larger size means that they take up more space on the road. These and other factors that truck accidents may result in greater injuries than a typical car accident. For example, since trucks take longer to come to a stop, they have much higher rates of rear-end collisions than cars do. These kinds of accidents tend to involve greater forces and velocities which can result in more serious injuries for those inside the smaller vehicle. Furthermore, liability in a truck accident may not be as straightforward, as multiple parties – including those other than the truck driver – may ultimately be responsible for your injuries. A prompt, thorough investigation facilitated by an attorney is necessary for determining liability in these high-stakes scenarios.
  • Wrongful death. Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe someone who dies as the result of another's negligence or intentional act. In Texas, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by qualifying parties when an individual is killed due to the negligence or malicious behavior of another person, organization, or entity. The purpose of this type of lawsuit is to seek compensation for the survivors of the deceased person, such as their spouse, children, and/or parents.

If you are not sure whether you have a personal injury case, we encourage you to reach out right away. You only have a limited time to file a lawsuit if you do have a viable claim, and we are happy to help you understand your legal options.

Commonly Asked Questions

What types of compensation can I seek in a personal injury lawsuit?

In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to seek various types of compensation, depending on the specific circumstances of your case. These can include: 1) Medical expenses, such as hospital bills, medication costs, and rehabilitation expenses. 2) Lost wages and future earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from working or earning the same income as before. 3) Pain and suffering, which compensates you for the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident and your injuries. 4) Property damage, if your personal belongings were damaged or destroyed as a result of the accident. 5) Punitive damages, which are awarded in cases of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct. It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney to determine the specific types of compensation you may be eligible for in your case.

What is the role of insurance companies in personal injury cases?

Insurance companies play a significant role in personal injury cases. After an accident, you may need to file a claim with the at-fault party's insurance company to seek compensation for your injuries. However, it is important to remember that insurance companies are businesses and their primary goal is to minimize their own financial liability. They may try to offer you a low settlement or deny your claim altogether. That's why it is important to have a personal injury attorney on your side who can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

What if I can't afford to hire a personal injury attorney?

Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they successfully recover compensation for you. In this arrangement, the attorney's fees are a percentage of the amount recovered in the case. This allows individuals who may not have the financial means to hire an attorney upfront to still have access to legal representation. Additionally, most personal injury attorneys offer free initial consultations, where you can discuss your case and determine if they are the right fit for you. It is important to inquire about the fee structure and payment options during your consultation to ensure you understand the financial arrangement.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Texas Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is intended to help you recover the economic and non-economic damages you need to cover both your calculable and incalculable losses. Economic damages cover all financial losses you incurred (as well as losses you anticipate you will incur) as a direct result of your injuries, while non-economic damages refer to subjective, non-monetary losses. After evaluating your situation, can help you understand what types of damages you can expect to recover.

Our San Marcos personal injury lawyers will fight to obtain maximum compensation for all economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?

Personal injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, which is a time limit for how long you have to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries. In Texas, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. This may sound like a long time, but it is in your best interest to start the legal process as quickly as possible. The sooner we get to work, the more time we will have to investigate, preserve, evidence, negotiate with the defendant, and build a strong case.
