OTHER FAQ

You should contact a personal injury attorney as soon after an accident as possible if you believe that another party may be at fault for the accident. The sooner you get an experienced injury lawyer the better!

The Statute of Limitation in Texas varies for certain types of accidents. For instance, in Texas, an auto accident involving a third party is generally governed by the 2-year Statute of Limitation. This means a lawsuit must be on file and the offending party served with the lawsuit no later than two years from the date of your accident or the case must have been completely resolved by that date.

There are certain exceptions to this general rule that may shorten or lengthen the period depending on the facts. If you miss that 2-year deadline, your right to compensation may be forever lost. In some cases and in some states, the Statute of Limitation or Statute of Repose may be shorter and in some cases, it is longer. There are certain Statutes of Repose that may also affect some claims such as injuries caused by older products.

When in doubt, contact an attorney of your choosing as soon as possible. To speak with the personal injury lawyers at the Baumgartner Law Firm call (281) 587-1111 or fill out the contact form.

This is a very difficult question for a personal injury lawyer to answer without having all of the information available. Determining the worth of a personal injury claim depends upon how seriously you are injured, the liability facts of the case, and the insurance limits that may be available. Every case has three elements that an experienced personal injury attorney analyzes to determine what they feel the true value of a claim may be.

Those areas are 1. Liability 2. Damages 3. Insurance.

Determining the case’s value is something that is learned over many years of practice as an attorney handling personal injury claims. There is no set formula to determine the value of any injury claim. Based on our many years of experience with Texas personal injury cases, we may be able to estimate the range of the value of your case after we have reviewed all medical records and important evidence that may be admitted into the trial of the case.

Generally, some important factors include:

  • Your doctor’s testimony regarding your injuries;
  • The facts surrounding the accident- responsibility for the accident;
  • Disability or inability to work;
  • Whether or not punitive damages may be appropriate; and
  • The type of case.

Other factors that may be relevant in determining the range of the value of a case include the number of your medical expenses, the testimony from your doctors, and the claims history of the plaintiff.

The answer is possibly, but why would you want to? In general, the more serious the accident the more likely it is that you will need an experienced personal injury attorney to assist you.

For real serious injuries, it is almost a necessity that an attorney helps you in order to get the highest net amount of compensation possible. For cases that involve very minor injury, it is possible that you may be able to handle the claim yourself.

There is a reason why the insurance company does not want you to hire an attorney and it is not because they’re looking out for your interests. Insurance companies do not want you to retain an attorney, especially in very serious injury cases and cases with substantial liability insurance because they don’t want to pay would be fair justice in the case. Your first clue that you need a personal injury attorney is when you hear the words you don’t need an attorney for this or we accept responsibility.

This is the first question that many people ask after being injured in an accident. Getting hurt is not enough to have a case. The personal injury case is much like a stool, it must have three strong legs to stand. In a personal injury context, those legs are liability, damages, and ability to pay. All three are necessary for a satisfactory civil result from an accident.

For liability, an easy approach is to ask “what did they do wrong“. If you can’t answer that question, you may not have a case.

For damages, ask “what are my injuries“. It is not enough that something bad might have happened.

On the ability to pay ask “what insurance coverage is available for this accident“?

Finally, each situation will be evaluated by an injury lawyer to determine if the law firm thinks the case is a viable one. Some cases such as product liability are very expensive and risky for a lawyer to accept. In that event, the damages (and potential payday for the law firm) must justify the time and money commitment to take the case.

A claim may be settled in a matter of months or a lawsuit may last years.

Every case is different and involves different issues. As such, some cases are resolved in very little time depending on the parties, the events surrounding the accident, and the adjusters and/or attorneys involved. An exact timeframe cannot be given although once you contact a car accident attorney, they will be able to tell you the process and procedures involved in making a claim against another party and the approximate amount of time it would take to litigate such a claim.

The Baumgartner Law Firm operates on a contingency basis which means there is never an upfront fee. Once the case is evaluated and accepted by the firm, the client is asked to sign a retainer agreement. In that document, the injured party agrees to pay the attorney a percentage of whatever recovery is made. Also, the injured party also agrees to reimburse, from the settlement, any expenses the attorney may have incurred for things such as court filing fees, investigator costs, medical records, expert fees, deposition costs, etc.

At no time is a client asked to pay these case expenses upfront. Also, if the case does not result in a settlement or verdict, no fee or reimbursement of expenses is required by Baumgartner Law Firm.
