How Lorenz & Lorenz May Be Able to Help You
Many accident victims do not know how important it can be to hire a personal injury attorney. Research has shown that injury victims who hire an attorney are more likely to recover more compensation.
If we validate your claim and you hire one of our San Antonio personal injury attorneys, we are prepared to manage every step of this process, which may include:
Investigating the Accident
There are many steps we may take to determine what happened and who may be at fault, such as:
- Obtaining police/accident reports
- Interviewing witnesses
- Reviewing relevant state laws
- Obtaining all medical documentation
- Using accident reconstruction specialists if necessary
Assessing the Full Value of Your Damages
Our lawyers have helped many victims recover compensation over the years. We know how to determine the full value of a claim, including the value of non-economic damages that are more difficult to calculate.
Handling All Communication
Talking to insurers can be stressful, particularly if you know insurance companies are looking to take advantage of you.
Our firm believes your focus should be on your medical treatment. We are ready to handle all communication on your behalf. We make sure to keep our clients updated on the status of their claims.
Negotiating for a Fair Settlement
Many personal injury cases are settled and do not get to court. If the insurance company makes a lowball offer, we are ready to keep negotiating until we secure a favorable settlement.
Our lawyers are skilled in personal injury trial law, and prepared to file a lawsuit if the insurance company denies your claim or does not offer fair compensation. You need an attorney who is prepared to go to court because insurance companies regularly undervalue and deny legitimate claims.
Contact an attorney right away. You have a limited amount of time to seek compensation.
Validating Your Case
If you suffered an injury because of another’s negligence or carelessness, you may have legal options.
However, you cannot recover compensation unless your lawyer can prove the four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care – This means the at-fault party was obligated to act with care to prevent other people from suffering harm.
- Breach of duty of care – The at-fault party failed to act with care, or the at-fault party simply failed to act to prevent harm to others. When people choose to drive while they are tired or under the influence of drugs, they may have breached their duty.
- Causation – There must be a link between the breached duty and your injuries – if not for the breach, you would have been unharmed.
- Damages suffered – Your injuries must have caused damages, including things like medical expenses for treatment and pain and suffering.
Types of Cases We Take On
Since our firm was founded in 2001, Lorenz & Lorenz has been dedicated to representing people who were injured by the negligence of another. Our firm focuses on car accidents and truck accidents, but we are prepared to take on other types of accident cases and personal injury lawsuits in the San Antonio area, including:
- Dog bites
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Wrongful death cases
Compensation for Texas Personal Injury Cases
Usually, the largest part of a settlement or jury verdict for a personal injury case is the victim’s medical expenses. This includes bills the victim already incurred and bills he or she is likely to incur in the future.
Victims are generally eligible to obtain compensation for the reasonable cost of treatment, which may include the cost of:
- Durable medical devices (wheelchair, crutches, cane, breathing machine, etc.)
- Treatment from a physical therapist
- Transportation costs for your appointments
Other forms of economic compensation that may be available include:
- Cost to repair or replace property
- Lost wages if you miss work
- Lost earning capacity
When accidents are so severe they cause you to suffer emotional distress, you may be eligible to pursue damages for non-economic personal injuries, which may include:
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Lost enjoyment of life
- Loss of reputation
- Lost companionship
Steps to Take After Being Injured in An Accident
No matter how many steps you may or may not have taken to begin building a claim, you can always contact an attorney to discuss things.
The steps below may help preserve your claim and make it easier for your lawyer to build a case.
Seeking Medical Attention Quickly
You want to make sure your injuries are diagnosed and properly treated. Sometimes injuries are not immediately apparent, so you should seek treatment even if you do not think you are seriously injured. Sometimes people are not aware of internal injuries right after the accident.
Tell the doctor who treats you how you became injured so it will be noted in your medical records. This helps to link your injury to the accident.
Collecting Evidence from the Scene
This is something you should only do if you are physically able and will not be putting yourself in danger. Once you leave the scene, it is likely going to be altered or cleaned up. Evidence could also get lost, never to be found again.
Taking pictures can be very helpful. Try to capture things that may have caused the accident, such as the wet spot that caused a slip and fall. Car crash victims should take pictures of the damaged vehicles and the position of the cars. Pictures of your injuries may also be helpful.
Your attorney can assist in gathering other types of evidence, as well. We have the resources to collect valuable information such as police reports, medical records, and accident reconstruction that can be imperative in proving your personal injury claim and ensuring maximum financial compensation.
Talking to Witnesses
Witnesses offer an objective, third-party account of what happened. Ask for contact information so your San Antonio personal injury lawyer can contact them in the future.
Witnesses can strengthen a claim if more than one has a similar recollection of events.
Being Cautious When Talking to the Insurance Company
Avoid providing too many details to the insurance company. Whatever you say might be used to deny your claim or devalue it.
You do not need to say much if the insurance company contacts you. You can simply say you were injured in an accident and have sought medical help. Answering questions about the severity of your injuries or the amount of pain you are feeling is a bad idea because you could accidentally say something that downplays your injuries.
Contacting a Lawyer
It is important to have someone on your side with the knowledge and experience in personal injury law to build a strong case. You cannot rely on the insurance company to take care of you.
Our personal injury lawyers will be committed to recovering full compensation to help you and your family move forward after the accident.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Deadline for Seeking Damages?
It is important that you contact a San Antonio personal injury attorney right away because you have limited time to file a case due to the statute of limitations. Under Texas’ personal injury statute of limitations, lawsuits must be filed within two years of the accident. If you miss the deadline, your claim is likely going to be dismissed. You may lose the chance to seek compensation.
Two years may sound like a lot of time, but personal injury cases take time, from investigating the accident to negotiating for compensation and potentially filing a lawsuit. If you wait to move forward, your attorney may not have enough time to build a strong case.
It is also important to note there are some exceptions to the statute of limitations. It is important to contact an experienced lawyer to determine the deadline for your claim.
What if the Victim Shares Fault?
Texas law uses a modified comparative negligence system. You can pursue compensation, provided you are not more than 51 percent at fault. If you are eligible to seek compensation, your percentage of fault will be deducted from your award. If you are found to be 10 percent at fault, 10 percent of the total compensation in your award will be taken out.
Do I Need a Lawyer to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Yes, hiring a lawyer to file your personal injury claim can significantly increase your chances of securing the compensation you deserve, especially after a serious injury. A skilled attorney not only understands the legal complexities involved but also has experience dealing with insurance companies. They will ensure all legal procedures are correctly followed, and deadlines are met while guiding you through each step of the process.
What Costs Can I Expect When Hiring Lorenz & Lorenz for My Personal Injury Case?
At Lorenz & Lorenz, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no upfront costs for our legal services. We only receive a fee if we successfully secure compensation for your case. This ensures that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, has access to expert legal representation.
Can an Attorney Help Me if My Loved One’s Death Was Caused by Another Party’s Negligence?
Yes, if your loved one’s death was due to another party’s negligence, our attorneys can assist you in filing a wrongful death lawsuit. This type of claim seeks compensation for the deceased’s medical expenses prior to their death, funeral and burial costs, loss of income and benefits they provided, as well as non-economic losses like companionship and emotional suffering.
How Long Does It Typically Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim in San Antonio, Texas?
The timeline for settling a personal injury claim can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the case and various other factors, such as severity of injuries and degree of fault, among others. Some cases may settle in just a few months, whereas others might take years, especially if they proceed to trial instead of reaching an out-of-court settlement. The personal injury lawyers at Lorenz & Lorenz can provide you with more accurate estimates based on specifics about your case.
How Do I Find the Best Personal Injury Lawyers for My Case?
Finding the best personal injury lawyer involves several steps. First, consider their experience and specialization — ensure they have a strong track record in handling personal injury cases similar to yours. Next, look at client reviews and testimonials to gauge their reputation and success rate.
It’s also crucial that you feel comfortable with your attorney, as they should be someone who communicates transparently, listens attentively to your concerns, and treats you with respect. Furthermore, it can be beneficial if they operate on a contingency fee basis which means you only pay them if they win your case.
Lastly, scheduling a consultation can give you a clearer sense of whether or not they’re the right fit for you. At Lorenz & Lorenz, we offer free initial consultations providing potential clients an opportunity to discuss their case openly before making any decisions.
