Answering Your Questions About Personal Injury Lawsuits
If you have been injured in an accident, it can be difficult to know what to do. Nothing in life prepares you for dealing effectively with the pain, stress and outright shock of a car accident. Where should you begin? How should you get the right medical treatment? What should be done with the vehicle?
The best way to get answers to these questions is to talk with an experienced lawyer. At the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we use over 130 years of combined experience to guide our clients through the personal injury litigation process. Four of the six attorneys at our San Antonio law firm are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which means they have passed additional testing and demonstrated their ability to effectively handle complex personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
Our lawyers can help you get the answers you need to make the right choices about your case:
- The stages of a personal injury case: We can explain the personal injury litigation process, from beginning to end.
- Meeting with an attorney: Your attorney is sizing you up, just as much as you are sizing him up.
- Typical fees in a personal injury case: Many injured people have trouble making ends meet without the additional cost of an attorney. Luckily, most personal injury cases are handled on contingency fee.
- Time limits for bringing an injury case: Texas recognizes a statute of limitations — a time limit — in personal injury cases.
- Dos and don'ts for your injury case: Here are some pointers about things that will strengthen your case — and things that could harm you in the courtroom.
- Proving fault: what is negligence? In order to be successful, you lawyer must prove certain elements of your case. Here is the scoop on the legal parts of personal injury litigation.
- General rules for proving fault: Determining the person — or people — at fault for your accident can be one of the most critical issues in personal injury litigation.
- Know your rights: If you do not know your rights, you may accidentally give them up.
- Subrogation: When you file a personal injury lawsuit against someone who has automobile insurance, their insurance company will actually be the one to pay the claim. Their lawyers are insurance defense lawyers, which can sometimes be confusing to plaintiffs.
