Some of the cases we handle involve: distracted driver accidents, rear end accidents, head-on collisions, hit and run accidents, Uber and Lyft accidents, speeding car accidents, wrong way accidents, city transit accidents and more.
Victims of motorcycle accidents often live with serious injuries. Because their chosen mode of transportation does not afford the same level of protection that cars and trucks do, they are more susceptible to serious injuries.

Generally speaking, personal injury pertains to injuries caused to an individual’s body, emotions or reputation. Typically cases related to personal injury are born out of negligence, deliberate actions, and strict liability. As long as one of these elements is present in your case, you can successfully sue the party that harmed you.
For example, putting forth a personal injury case is a valid option if you were harmed during an accident or assaulted by someone. You may also have a case if a medical professional’s carelessness led to your injury. The same goes for manufacturers who release products that can be dangerous for people to use.
Non-bodily harm may come in the form of actions that cause mental anguish, defamation, and lost opportunities. Instead of the injury affecting your body, it may harm your mental and emotional state.

Hiring a lawyer is crucial if you want to seek compensation from the party that caused your injury. Some of the ways an attorney can help include:
Prove the Legitimacy of Your Claims: Some personal injury cases may devolve into both sides lobbing accusations at each other because they cannot substantiate their claims. Even if you are being truthful with your claims, the jury may not recognize that. Because of that, you may miss out on the compensation you deserve.
That will not happen if you have experienced legal representation. Your attorney can investigate your case thoroughly. In the process of doing so, they can also prove the legitimacy of your claims.
Put You in Position to Claim Adequate Compensation: Many plaintiffs in personal injury cases do not understand how much their lawsuit could potentially be worth. They may receive an offer from the other party’s lawyer and immediately think that they are getting a good deal.
With a lawyer on your side, you can be confident that you will receive adequate compensation in your case. They will educate you about your current position and discuss the damages you may be in line to receive.
Even if you are okay with settling your case, you can still get a better deal because you know what you deserve.
Negotiate Your Settlement: Settlement negotiations can be dicey. A single mistake could cost you thousands of dollars.
You should not handle those important negotiations solo. Partner with an attorney so they can guide you through the process. They can also tell if you are getting a fair settlement offer.
Represent You in Court: Do not worry if your negotiations with the other side ultimately fall apart. You can still feel confident about heading to court knowing you have an experienced legal representative fighting for you.
Be careful with your actions following an accident because you could miss out on compensation if you do certain things wrong. The section below should provide some useful guidance.
Check if You Are Injured: Your priority following an accident should be your safety. Check for injuries so you can understand right away if you are in imminent danger.
Call 911: Once you are done checking for injuries, you should call 911 for assistance. Ask them to send an ambulance if anyone is hurt and to send police officers to the scene of the accident.
Get Information from the Other Party Involved: Because Texas is an at-fault state, the party responsible for causing your accident will need to compensate you for your losses. If possible, you should get the name, contact details, and insurance information of the person who caused your accident.
Gather Any Evidence Available: You can also start to collect evidence if you can. Take pictures of where you are in Bexar County, record witness statements, and try to obtain anything that you believe could be helpful to your lawsuit.
Talk to the Police Officers: Talk to the officers from the San Antonio police department once they get to the scene and share the evidence you have gathered with them. You should also talk about the accident from your perspective so they can note it when they make their report. Request their contact details as well so you can get that accident report quickly.
Go to the Doctor: Make a visit to the doctor following your accident so they can check you for injuries. Keep in mind that certain injuries caused by accidents may not manifest immediately. This can be the case with some traumatic brain injuries where symptoms may not appear until days or even weeks after an accident.
Partner with an Attorney: If you do not have legal representation yet, you should change that before you move forward with your personal injury case. Working with an attorney will increase the chances of your lawsuit being successful.
The amount of compensation you may receive from your personal injury lawsuit will depend on the losses you sustained and the law of proportionate responsibility.
Together with your attorney, you can examine your tangible losses, such as your medical expenses, damaged property, and lost wages. Those will determine the economic damages you should receive in your case.
To calculate the damages that will compensate you for your non-economic losses, your lawyer will use a calculation method selected by the court.
Proportionate responsibility comes into play if you share blame for the accident. That law will reduce your compensation based on the blame you bear. Because of proportionate responsibility, you may also miss out on compensation entirely if more than 50% of the blame for the accident is on you.
