Why You Need a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, you may be highly stressed and overwhelmed with serious injuries, medical bills, and emotional distress. That’s why it’s in your best interest to hire a personal injury lawyer in Dallas who can handle your claim for you.

Our team of attorneys has extensive experience handling all types of personal injury cases, including car accidents, defective products, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, medical malpractice cases, and more. We know how to navigate complex Texas personal injury laws and regulations for all these case types to secure maximum payouts for our clients.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Auto accidents involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles are capable of causing severe injuries, especially when a negligent driver is operating a vehicle. Our experienced auto accident lawyers identify cases of drunk driving, distracted driving, and driver fatigue, hold these drivers accountable, and secure victims the compensation they deserve.

We can also handle complicated cases that involve commercial trucks, public transportation, rideshare companies, defective vehicle parts, and other cases when multiple parties may be liable. We work to recover compensation for your medical costs and other damages from all responsible parties.

Serious Injuries

Injuries from car crashes, work accidents, dog bites, and defective products can be long-lasting and affect many different parts of your life. If you suffered a brain or spinal cord injury, burn injuries, or another injury that caused permanent disability or disfigurement, we will ensure you receive compensation for ongoing medical care, lost wages now and in the future, and mental and emotional damages like pain and suffering.

Work Accidents

Texas employees often face many injury risks in the workplace, including tripping and slipping hazards, heavy equipment and machinery, motor vehicles, chemicals, and other dangerous substances. Injured workers may be entitled to compensation from negligent third parties, including other employees, independent contractors, manufacturers of defective equipment, and other drivers on the road. Our attorneys can help you navigate complicated cases and laws to recover the compensation for your damages.

Non-Subscriber Work Injuries

Many Texas employees are not covered by workers’ compensation because their employers do not participate in the statewide workers’ comp system. However self-insured employers can still be held liable if a worker is injured due to their negligence. We will support you throughout the process of filing a claim against your employer to ensure you receive maximum compensation for all damages related to your work injury, including your medical treatment and any lost income from your inability to work.

The Process of a Personal Injury Claim

1. Selecting an Attorney

You don’t need a lawyer to represent you in court, but your chances of success are substantially higher if you hire one. You should select an attorney who has experience in your specific case type and can navigate the ins and outs of Texas injury laws. You should also make sure your attorney has a proven track record in the courtroom and will take your case to trial if necessary

2. Launching an Investigation

When you hire an attorney, they will investigate to collect evidence in support of your personal injury claim. They will preserve this evidence and gather eyewitness testimony to reconstruct what happened and find who was at fault.

You can greatly support this process by documenting as much evidence as you can right when your accident/injuries occur. Take photos of the accident scene and your injuries. If there are witnesses, get their names and contact information so your attorney can interview them as potential trial witnesses.

3. Documenting Your Injuries

After an accident, you should always seek medical care, whether you are injured or not. All records of hospital and doctor visits, including follow-up care, will provide critical documentation of the extent of your injuries.

4. Consulting With Experts

In some cases, your lawyer may need to consult with expert witnesses to prove that the negligent party is liable for your injuries. These experts, such as accident reconstructionists, can serve as trial witnesses to help a judge or jury understand the events leading up to the accident.

5. Negotiating a Settlement or Filing a Lawsuit

Most personal injury cases are settled without the need for a trial. When faced with evidence proving negligence and the extent of the victim’s injuries, most defendants—and their insurance carriers—are usually eager to settle. Your attorney will negotiate the amount you deserve. If, for some reason, a settlement becomes impossible, your attorney will assist you in filing a lawsuit.

6. Obtaining the Final Decision

If a personal injury case goes to trial, a jury, or sometimes just the judge, will hear evidence and arguments from both sides before delivering a verdict. The losing side may decide to appeal the verdict, but if they don’t, the trial court’s decision is final.

Choosing the Right Lawyer

If you’ve sustained injuries from an accident, it’s important to choose a Dallas personal injury lawyer with experience with your specific case type. Your lawyer should have experience taking cases to court and securing significant compensation for clients.

Your lawyer should handle every aspect of your claim so you can focus on your recovery. When you hire Steinger, Greene & Feiner to take on your case, we will:

  • Explain your rights and offer legal advice
  • Document your losses and calculate the total value of your claim
  • Hold the at-fault party accountable 
  • Negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf
  • File a lawsuit and represent you in court if necessary

Compensation You May Be Entitled To

There are two kinds of compensation you may be entitled to after an injury. These are economic damages (monetary expenses) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering).

The primary form of compensation in a personal injury lawsuit is for economic damages, which include:

  • Hospital and doctor bills
  • Medical treatments and medications
  • Lost income from missing work
  • Loss of future income if unable to return to work
  • Cost of in-home care or equipment for a permanent disability
  • Vocational rehabilitation

Non-economic or non-tangible damages include:

  • Physical pain and suffering caused by the injury
  • Emotional/mental toll put on the injury victim
  • Loss of quality and enjoyment of life

There are also additional damages that apply in some cases:

  • Punitive damages are designed to punish the negligent party for actions that were reckless or wrong, like drunk driving, as a means to prevent similar behavior in the future.
  • Wrongful death damages are available to the deceased’s family and include funeral and burial expenses, as well as loss of income if the deceased was the primary earner.

Common Mistakes After a Personal Injury

Skipping a Medical Examination

After an accident, shock, and adrenaline can mask symptoms of injuries and make you think you are not injured. If you make the mistake of failing to get medical attention, it will be difficult to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident. By seeking immediate medical treatment after your accident, you ensure any injuries are diagnosed and treated, and you help prove that your injuries were caused by the accident, increasing your chances of securing maximum compensation.

Accepting Compensation Before Speaking to an Attorney

The company or insurance company that represents the at-fault party may contact you and try to get you to accept a settlement, but you should never accept any form of compensation before consulting an attorney. Insurance companies will offer lowball settlements to pay you less than you deserve. Let your attorney negotiate with them on your behalf.

When you hire a personal injury attorney after an accident, they will make sure you don’t make these mistakes or any other mistakes that may hurt your case. They will help you receive the medical care you need, and they will aggressively negotiate with insurance companies for you to secure maximum compensation.
