Understanding Personal Injury Law in Austin

Personal injury law is designed to protect people who have experienced harm due to the negligence of another person or organization. Personal injury law is also known as tort law, and it can be used as a legal option to recover compensation from the at-fault party.

Personal injury law protects your interests in a wide variety of situations, including:

An experienced personal injury lawyer will build a case to hold the other party liable and secure you a larger settlement than what the insurance company offers in almost every case.

Choosing the Right Personal Injury Lawyer in Austin

When you decide to hire a personal injury lawyer after an accident in Austin, you need a lawyer who is dedicated to getting you the compensation you need to recover and move forward. 

First, legal services should be affordable, so choose a lawyer who works on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not owe them anything unless they win your case.

That’s how we operate at Steinger, Greene & Feiner. Our personal injury lawyers are highly experienced in dealing with many types of personal injury cases and securing maximum payouts for our satisfied clients. Our case results are proof that we’re ready to relentlessly pursue the compensation you deserve.

The Role of a Personal Injury Attorney in Your Case

The aftermath of an accident can be highly stressful. When you hire a personal injury attorney, they will:

  • Help you recover: A personal injury lawyer will handle every aspect of your case so you can focus on what’s most important—healing, both physically and emotionally.
  • Investigate the accident: Your attorney will visit the accident scene to collect and preserve all evidence, interview witnesses, hire experts to build the case, and more.
  • Construct the case and prove fault: Your attorney will analyze all evidence in your case, including the police report, to build a solid case and prove who is responsible for your injuries.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies: Insurance companies will try to pressure you into accepting a settlement that is less than you deserve. We’ll negotiate with them on your behalf to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
  • Negotiate with medical professionals: Some doctors may be reluctant to care for personal injury victims because of lengthy litigation. We’ll make sure you find a reputable doctor and get the medical care you need.
  • Take your case to court, if necessary: Most personal injury lawsuits end in a settlement, but our attorneys are always prepared to argue your case in court.

Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

The consequences and costs of an accident can be long-lasting and far-reaching. When you file a personal injury claim in Austin, you have the right to demand compensation for past, present, and future damages related to your accident. 

An experienced personal injury attorney will help you recover compensation for all damages you have suffered. You can recover monetary compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages & income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain & suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

Common Challenges in Personal Injury Cases

The person or organization who caused your injuries and their insurance company will always argue that they weren’t negligent or that the incident was your fault. That’s why it’s in your best interest to hire a personal injury lawyer who will advocate for you throughout every step of your claim. 

When the at-fault party’s insurance company contacts you, they will try to get you to say something they can use against you later or pressure you into accepting a lowball settlement. That’s why it’s best to leave communication with insurance companies to your lawyer. They’re familiar with insurance company tactics, and they’ll aggressively negotiate for the compensation you deserve.

In addition to hiring a lawyer who will prove the other party’s negligence and handle all negotiations for you, it’s important to remember the Texas Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims. You have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim.

No matter where you are in the process, even if you’ve already spoken to the insurance company, you should strongly consider hiring a personal injury attorney.

FAQs About Austin Personal Injury

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?

If you’ve been injured due to another person’s reckless or negligent behavior, you can benefit from hiring a personal injury lawyer. We provide free, no-obligation case evaluations to discuss your rights and legal options.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, we operate on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t get paid until you get paid.

Usually, when you hire an attorney, you must pay a cash retainer before the attorney will begin their work. But we believe our no-fee model is in the best interest of our clients since we do not get paid until we deliver results and secure you the compensation you deserve.

How Long Will It Take To Settle My Personal Injury Case?

Unfortunately, there is no set amount of time it takes to settle a personal injury case because each case is unique. 

It is common for the length of a client’s medical treatment to dictate the length of the personal injury case. For example, if a client requires six months of treatment for their injuries, their case will often take longer to resolve than one where the client recovered within one or two months of treatment.

However, if a lawsuit has to be filed to force the insurance company to pay a fair amount of compensation, the case will take considerably longer to resolve regardless of the length of medical treatment.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The amount a personal injury case can settle for depends on several factors. The primary factor is the severity of the client’s injuries and the cost of medical treatment.

Secondly, the amount of insurance coverage available can set a limit on the compensation that can be recovered regardless of the client’s injuries and damages.

Finally, the settlement value is driven by the at-fault party’s insurance company.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers will estimate a fair value that includes all damages you have incurred and aggressively pursue this amount from the insurance company.

Is It Too Late for Me To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

In Texas, the statute of limitations to file an injury claim is two years from the date of the accident. If you’re in the process of considering filing a claim, we encourage you to speak to a personal injury attorney, even if you’ve already spoken with the insurance company.

The sooner you speak to a lawyer, the better. This is because insurance companies will try to find information they can use against you to lower the value of your claim. When you hire a lawyer, they will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to recover the compensation you deserve. 

Who Pays for the Medical Bills in a Personal Injury Case?

After an accident, many clients are overwhelmed by mounting medical bills. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you can. They will help ensure that you get the medical care you need and the compensation you need to cover medical bills and any other damages you have suffered.
