What types of San Antonio car accident cases does Tracey Fox & Walters handle?

Our law firm has experience handling many types of car accidents cases, including but not limited to:

What are common car accident injuries?

Car accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, some of which can be life-changing or life-threatening. Some common injuries you may suffer after a car accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Bruising
  • Cuts
  • Burns

These injuries often lead to substantial medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional distress for victims. As experienced San Antonio car accident lawyers, we understand the complex and challenging nature of these cases, and we are committed to advocating for our clients to ensure they receive the compensation and support they need to navigate the road to recovery.

How can a car accident lawyer help?

A lawyer will have the resources to investigate your accident and gather evidence. This includes reviewing accident reports and medical records, interviewing witnesses and consulting experts as needed. A lawyer can also carefully examine how the crash impacted your life and determine your true damages.

In addition, an attorney can handle all the paperwork involved in your case and negotiate with insurance companies. If the insurance company won’t negotiate, you will have an experienced litigator fighting for you in court.

Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company after an accident?

Not without talking to an attorney first! You may be contacted by the insurance company shortly after your accident with a settlement offer. They may even tell you it’s the best that they can do. But it will most likely fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. It is always in your best interests to get trusted legal advice before accepting any settlement.

Insurance companies use many different tactics designed to reduce your compensation. These include attempts to minimize your injuries or claim that they were pre-existing. A lawyer can help you fight back to get the compensation you deserve.

How long do I have to file a car accident lawsuit in San Antonio?

In Texas, you generally have two years to file a lawsuit after a car accident occurs. This time limit is called the "statute of limitations." It's crucial to act within this period to protect your legal rights. If you don’t, you are at risk of losing the chance to pursue crash compensation. Hiring a lawyer with a winning track record in San Antonio can be very helpful in car accident cases, as we can ensure your case is filed within the statute of limitations.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

Every case is different. Cases involving accidents that are more straightforward may be able to be resolved within a matter of months. But others are more complicated. The insurance company may dispute injury claims and refuse to negotiate a settlement. The case may head to court and it may take years to resolve.

An attorney can review the details of your situation and give you an idea of how long it will take for you to recover compensation.

Ready to fight for you

At Tracey Fox & Walters, we take a very deliberate approach toward building legal cases. We take the time to review all documents, gather evidence and interview witnesses. If needed, we'll bring in experts. We leave no stone unturned. This helps us build the strongest possible case.

We don’t put up with attempts to blame you for what happened. We’re not interested in lowball settlement offers that help the insurance company save money.

Our attorneys are only interested in getting you the compensation you deserve. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses for treating your injuries, lost wages if you couldn’t work and other damages such as pain and suffering. We do this by building strong cases that hold negligent drivers accountable.

Why do we do things this way? Because our approach produces results. Insurance companies know we have all the facts. They know we will be ready to take our case to court. That's why they usually agree to a settlement that is right for you.

The amount of financial compensation you receive will depend on many different factors. In general, car accident victims can seek damages for medical expenses, vehicle loss, lost wages and pain and suffering. Some cases can be complicated. But we always have one simple goal—to get the most amount of money possible for our clients.

How much does a lawyer cost?

We offer experienced legal representation from a law firm that has a record of results for clients. Our legal team can investigate your accident, build a strong case, deal with the insurance company and push your claim through the legal process. The best part is that moving your case forward will cost you nothing.

Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. That means we pay all the initial costs. There are no fees or out-of-pocket expenses that you need to pay. If we recover compensation for you, our fee comes out of the negotiated settlement or jury award. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
