How much money can I receive in a personal injury case?
The exact amount of compensation for which you are eligible depends on many factors, including the type of insurance policies involved, the extent of your injuries and to what degree you yourself might have helped contribute to an injurious accident. You should, however, be able to recover damages sufficient to address your medical expenses and lost wages, as well as for non-economic factors such as the pain and suffering you have endured because of your injury.
How long will my case take to resolve?
It is in the interest of insurance companies to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible, so you should expect that your case will take somewhere between six months and a year to be resolved. A personal injury case can take even longer if a trial is involved.
How can a personal injury lawyer help me win my case?
Rules and regulations surrounding personal injury cases are very complicated in the State of Texas. Insurance companies and the claims examiners who work for them are experts at denying, delaying and reducing claims whenever possible.
