Why hire us as your Austin Personal Injury Attorney?

Experiencing a serious injury of any sort is a painful and often stressful situation for anyone to have to endure. Items like paying medical expenses, hassling with insurance companies, in addition to the physical pain, are just a few examples of what can make a serious injury so traumatic and draining.

Because of the physical, financial and emotional toll on you and your family, it’s important to get the right type of help when you’ve been injured in order to avoid making common mistakes and to obtain the best possible outcome.

Common Mistakes After an Injury

Here are just a few common mistakes made by people who’ve been seriously injured:

  • Choosing not to pursue legal action after an injury without determining how strong of a case you have.
  • Accepting a settlement from an insurance company without obtaining legal advice.
  • Not keeping good records, documentation or evidence regarding your injury
  • Not hiring a qualified lawyer

Mistakes like these make it very difficult to obtain that best case scenario from a legal perspective. What you need is a law firm with the experience and know how to help you avoid these legal pitfalls.

How Long Will it Take to Settle My Personal Injury Claim?

Under the rules of the state of Texas, you have a period of two years from the time of the injury in order to file your claim. It’s important to file your claim as soon as possible. Once the two year statute of limitations has passed, you will be unable to file your claim.

There are a number of important ways in which an Austin injury lawyer can help you file and win your personal injury case. The most important thing they can do is to help you shorten the amount of time it takes to win your case.

  • A road accident claim may take from 4 to 9 months to settle.
  • A workplace accident claim may take between 6 to 9 months.
  • A slip, trip, or fall claim may take between 6 to 9 months.
  • An industrial disease claim may take between 12 to 18 months
  • A medical negligence claim may take between 18 to 36 months
