    Car Accidents and Personal Injury Law

    Last updated 5 years ago

    If you suffered injuries in a car accident, it is important to act quickly so that you legal claim is not barred from being heard at a later time. This video explains the four steps accident victims should follow to ensure that their claims are considered.

    First, inform your insurance company of the accident and comply with their investigation. Next, keep track of medical bills and any other accident costs. Third, take photos of the damage to your car and of any physical injuries. Perhaps most importantly, contact a personal injury attorney to assess your legal options. Watch this full video to learn more.

    Valuable Terminology Used in Personal Injury Claims

    Last updated 5 years ago

    If you were hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness, you may have a legal claim against the other party for the damages you sustained. A personal injury lawyer can draft your claim and help you obtain the compensation you deserve. However, the legal process may involve complicated legalese you are unfamiliar with. Consult the following list of useful legal terminology if you have been injured in an accident:

    Statute of Limitations: This legal term describes the expiration date of your personal injury claim. After an accident, you only have a certain amount of time to sue an at-fault party for damages. If too much time passes, your claim is time-barred from reaching the court. In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury actions is two years from date of injury.

    Negligence: The legal ground for most personal injury tort claims is negligence. This legal course of action involves proving that someone owed you a duty of care, that he or she breached that duty, and that you suffered damages as a direct result of that breach.

    Out-of-Court Settlement: Most personal injury cases do not make it to trial. An out-of-court settlement is a financial agreement between you and the at-fault party’s insurance company to drop your personal injury lawsuit in exchange for compensation. Your lawyer can help you negotiate favorable settlement terms.

    Discovery: Should your case fail to settle out of court, the claim will head to trial. Before a jury is selected, both sides will do research and obtain important documents surrounding the accident. This process is known as discovery and is governed by its own set of state laws.

    Do not let your injury go uncompensated. If you live in Texas, consult the skilled legal team at The Carlson Law Firm in Killeen by calling (888) 335-7492. Our attorneys have handled a wide variety of personal injury claims and can help you obtain a fair and just settlement.

    When my daughter was hit by a car in April, I thought naively that the driver's insurance company would step up and pay the medical expenses. They didn't. When I called Carlson Law Firm, I was wary at first and disbelieving of the results they said they could deliver. But the staff was so helpful and compassionate, helping us find orthapedic... More
