Frequently Asked Questions
Can I afford an attorney?
Yes. Our firm handles injury cases under a contingency fee - contingent upon us recovering monetary damages for you. We receive a percentage of the recovery as our fee through either case settlement or jury trial. In this way we share your risk. We offer a free consultation. There will å costs and expenses which are usually advanced on behalf of the client and are separate from the contingent fee. We make every effort to settle your claim quickly, to lower your stress and put money into your pocket sooner.
What will you do for me as my attorney?
Our office handles only injury claims. We accept only as many cases as we can give our full attention to. We take the time to gather information - witness statements, investigative reports, police reports, video tapes, medical bills, reports, jury evaluations from similar cases, as well as photographs of injuries, and the scene.
How long do I have to make a claim?
In Texas generally the Statute of Limitations on a personal injury claim runs one day before the 2 year anniversary of the injury, occurrence or known negligence. However, it is important to remember that certain claims, such as medical malpractice or worker's compensation may have different statutes. In a case where a minor child is injured, the statute of limitations normally starts on the child's 18th birthday and runs to the day before 2 years from that date. Appropriate action needs to take place well in advance of the statute running out. Act Now!
