Frequently Asked Questions - Ask The Texas Legal Shark 361-287-7756
How long does a Texas personal injury case take?
An injury claim can take anywhere from a few months to a year or more. Most won’t go longer than a year, but it is possible. Some insurers will drag their feet because they hope you’ll give in and accept a lower settlement because you just want to put this accident behind you. Hang in there. It’s worth it to hold out sometimes.
What kinds of personal injury damages can I be compensated for?
You could receive financial compensation for the costs associated with your accident and your suffering. For instance, you may be compensated for lost income, physical pain, mental distress, property damage, medical bills, caregiving expenses, and more. Call the Texas Legal Shark to get the compensation you deserve.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Texas?
In Texas, you are given a time limit of two years to submit your injury claim against the party who hurt you. If you let that time frame pass, you likely won’t be able to file a claim at a later time. Call the Texas Legal Shark before your time runs out.
Can I still file an injury claim if I was partly to blame for the accident?
Yes, you can—as long as you weren’t the person who was mostly to blame for the accident. The other person will only be required to pay you damages in proportion to the amount of fault assigned to them. For instance, if a negligent party is found to be 75 percent responsible for your accident, you can receive 75 percent of the value of your damages from them.
I don’t think I can afford an attorney. Can you still help me?
Yes! Very few people can afford to pay an attorney up front. That’s why we work out a contingency fee arrangement with personal injury clients. This means that you only pay us for our services if we win your serious injury case. If we don’t win, you don’t pay.
