Injuries Happen in Many Ways
Accidents can happen when you least expect it, such as while you’re grocery shopping or picking your kids up from school. You may be going about your daily routine, just as you always do, when suddenly an accident happens, and you need to stop everything and go to the emergency room. You can’t turn back time and prevent the accident from happening, so you should know what to do and where to turn.
Consider the following reported statistics for Austin traffic crashes in a single year:
- Total crashes = 15,863
- Possible injuries = 6,029
- Injuries = 4,093
- Incapacitating injuries = 532
- Fatalities = 81
With an average of 43 car accidents happening every day in the Austin area, it is only a matter of time before you are involved in one. But, traffic accidents are far from the only cause of injuries to people in Austin. Our firm knows how to handle a wide variety of personal injury cases because we know that injuries can happen in many different ways! We regularly handle cases involving the following:
- Car accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Premises liability accidents
- Wrongful death
A car accident case will involve different legal questions than a slip and fall case in many ways. First, proving a driver was reckless requires different evidence than proving a business had slippery floors or dangerous hazards that caused you to fall. Also, in a slip and fall case, you might be going up against a major corporation like Walmart and their insurers. These companies can play hardball, and you need law firm that knows how to STAND UP to them and FIGHT for your rights.
No matter what type of accident occurred, we are ready to help. Call our office RIGHT AWAY for a free case evaluation to learn whether you may have a valid claim.
Injuries Come With Overwhelming Losses
Having the right law firm on your side is crucial since there is often so much at stake in a personal injury claim. Losses from even a seemingly minor injury can add up quickly and before you know it, you and your family are facing serious financial troubles. This is all because someone else acted negligently and injured you! The team at our law firm knows that at-fault parties should be held accountable for the harm they caused, and we know how to do just that.
The goal of any personal injury claim is to get compensation from the liable parties. This payment should cover all your losses, which can be extensive. Losses can vary widely from case to case, and our law firm knows how to calculate the value of your claim based on your specific circumstances. We regularly seek compensation for the following losses:
- Medical bills – After an accidental injury, you should always seek medical attention. Medical care is costly, and you may have bills for emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, doctor’s visits, medication, medical equipment, physical therapy, and more.
- Lost wages – Injuries can cause you to miss work for many reasons. Often, your doctor will order you to rest until you recover. An injury may also prevent you from doing your job duties, so you must take leave from work. You deserve to recover for all income lost due to your injuries.
- Pain and suffering – You can also seek payment for intangible losses such as physical and mental pain and suffering. While it’s difficult to put a number on pain, the right law firm can determine the value of your pain and suffering claim.
- Permanent injuries – Some accidents cause permanent injuries that completely change your life. You may have to live with a disability or disfigurement, and you should receive compensation for this trauma.
Our law firm knows that insurance companies do NOT want to pay you what you deserve. We understand the inside secrets of insurers and we won’t fall for their tricks of the trade. We have our own tools to make sure our clients receive justice and the full amount they deserve after an accident and injuries.
