No. Insurance companies want you to think they have your best interests at heart. But in most cases, insurance companies only care about one thing - paying injury victims as little as possible. That's why you should politely decline to answer any questions if insurance companies contact you after your accident. Their questions might seem innocent. But in reality, they're often simply looking for reasons to deny or reduce your accident claim. That's why we strongly suggest you tell insurance companies to contact us. We can deal directly with them on your behalf. We know the games they play and how to outsmart them.
Always carefully consider any settlement offer before agreeing to accept the money. What many people don't realize is if you agree to accept an offer, you often forfeit the right to seek additional compensation in the future. And during the course of your lifetime, a serious personal injury accident can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars or even more. That's why you should talk to us before you agree to accept anything for your accident. What might seem like a reasonable offer could turn out to be a low-ball one that doesn't even come close to covering all your accident-related expenses during your lifetime.
There are many expenses you can often be compensated for after an accident caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions. Depending on what type of accident you’re dealing with, such accident-related expenses may include financial compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Vehicle repairs
- Lost income
- Lost future income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Diminished quality of life
There is no set dollar amount when it comes to personal injury claims in San Antonio or anywhere else for that matter. Some accidents might be worth a few hundred dollars. Others may be worth millions. What often sets them apart is the evidence obtained by attorneys for injury victims. The more facts you have to support your claim, the stronger your case. We know because we have secured many multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts for injury victims throughout Texas.
Perhaps. Taking legal action is just one way you can often obtain the money you rightfully deserve for your personal injury. But it's often not the only way. We can explain all the legal options available to you. That way, we can help you decide which path to justice makes the most sense for your specific circumstances.
In general, a judge or jury in the county where your accident took place will rule on your personal injury lawsuit. In San Antonio, that will likely be a judge in Bexar County District Court. But you can request a jury trial. That's why it's important to talk to a San Antonio attorney at our law firm as soon as possible. We can fully explain how the process works and the best approach for you.
In most cases, you have up to 2 years to file a personal injury lawsuit in San Antonio, according to Texas law. But just because you have that much time does not mean you should wait until the last minute to file a lawsuit. The sooner you take legal action, the better. That's because evidence needed to build a strong legal case might not exist if you wait too long. Memories fade. Damages get repaired. And without those facts, you could have a very difficult time getting the money you rightfully deserve.
