Dallas-Fort Worth Personal Injury Lawyer
If you’ve been hurt by negligence, fight for the compensation you deserve
Accidents can happen anywhere, anytime in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Serious injuries might happen for a wide range of reasons. Premises liability cases can arise after a property owner’s negligent behavior – such as when a bar patron is over-served alcohol or a customer slips and falls at a hotel or grocery store. Texans injured as a result of defective cars and car parts may have grounds to file a lawsuit against a manufacturer. It’s possible to sustain serious injuries in boating accidents, ATV accidents, or to lose a loved one in a wrongful death accident.

How much money is my injury claim worth?
There is no set dollar amount when it comes to personal injury cases. Each claim is different and can be worth thousands of dollars or even more depending on the circumstances of your case. The bottom line is you should be compensated for all your expenses if you sustain a bad injury in an accident caused by someone else.
Insurance companies often have a lot to do with determining the value of your claim. The insurance company for the at-fault party will likely claim the value of your injury is much less than how much your case is really worth. Insurance companies do this because they’re often looking for any excuse to pay injury victims as little money as possible.
Don’t simply accept an insurance company’s estimate for how much you claim is worth. Talk to a lawyer. They can conduct their own investigation and determine how much your case could be worth. Your attorney can then demand the maximum financial compensation in the form of a personal injury settlement claim or jury verdict by filing a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
What can I be compensated for after an accident?
If someone caused your personal injury accident, you should receive money for all of your injury-related expenses. This includes all past and future expenses associated with your claim, including:
- Medical expenses for emergency room care, surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation and any other doctor’s care or medical treatment in the future.
- Replacement income during your recovery so you can rest after your accident.
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability or another severe injury.
- Other accident expenses and economic loses, including money for home care or maintenance if you are unable to do such work in your home due to your injury.
You can be compensated for more than injury-related bills. A personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation for non-economic damages like emotional distress. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide an accurate estimate for all your accident-related expenses. That’s why it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after your injury accident.
When do I need a personal injury lawyer?
If you have a significant injury from an accident caused by someone else, you need to talk to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer needs to start investigating before evidence disappears and can deal with the insurance company on your behalf while you focus on healing. Plus, there are legal deadlines that apply to personal injury cases, and a lawyer can advise you on the time limits that apply to your case.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
In Texas, the statute of limitations (legal deadline) for most personal injury lawsuits is two years from the date of the accident or event that caused your injury. However, different deadlines can apply in different circumstances. Ultimately, only a lawyer can tell you which deadlines apply in your situation and advise you of your legal options.
Will I have to go to court?
Not usually. Most personal injury cases are resolved through settlements. But if your case cannot come to a settlement, our law firm has the experience and resources to go to trial. Ultimately, the decision of whether to accept a settlement or proceed to trial is yours. Whatever you choose, we will be firmly in your corner and make sure you are prepared for each step.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
The cost of hiring an attorney to represent you is different from one firm to the next. Legal fees also often depend on many different factors, including the complexity of your personal injury case. That’s why it’s important to discuss legal fees when you meet with a lawyer.
We handle personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. That means you only pay if we recover financial compensation for you, usually in the form of a financial settlement or jury verdict as a result of a lawsuit. In other words, our personal injury lawyer fees come out of the settlement won. If you do not obtain any money for your personal injury claim, you do not have to pay your lawyer under the contingency fee structure. This way, you do not have to worry about whether or not you can afford top-notch legal advice
