Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

What should I do after an accident?

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, there are important steps you should take to protect your rights:

  • Seek Medical Attention – This is the top priority, even if you don’t think you were seriously injured. Symptoms of some injuries can take days or weeks to appear. Seeing a doctor creates a record of your injuries and treatment.
  • Report the Accident – File a report with the police or appropriate authorities. Be sure the report reflects the facts accurately. Request a copy for your records.
  • Document the Scene – If possible, take photos of any property damage, skid marks, location of impact, etc. This evidence can disappear quickly.
  • Gather Contact Info – Get the names, addresses, insurance details of all parties involved. Also collect contact information for witnesses.
  • Contact an Attorney – An experienced personal injury lawyer can advise you on next steps and protect your rights. Don’t provide statements to insurance companies without consulting an attorney first.

How do I choose the right personal injury lawyer?

Factors to consider when selecting a personal injury attorney include:

  • Experience – Look for a lawyer with extensive experience handling your specific type of injury case. An experienced attorney knows how to maximize compensation.
  • Resources – Choose an established law firm with the financial resources to fully investigate your claim and take the case to trial if needed.
  • Results – Ask about case results, verdicts and settlements. A track record of large recoveries for clients shows ability.
  • Reputation – Select a respected attorney known for ethics and professionalism. Check online reviews.
  • Compatibility – Make sure you feel comfortable with the attorney’s staff and style of communication. You want a lawyer you can trust.

How much is my injury case worth?

Every personal injury case is unique, but factors impacting case value may include:

  • Liability – Clear negligence by the other party typically increases value. Shared fault can reduce compensation.
  • Severity of Injuries – More serious injuries merit higher damages. Permanent impairment or disabilities warrant more compensation.
  • Medical Treatment – Extensive medical care, procedures, rehabilitation and lengthy recovery periods tend to increase case value.
  • Lost Income – If unable to work during recovery, lost wages can be added to the claim value.
  • Pain and Suffering – The more severe the daily impact on quality of life, the higher the payout.
  • Punitive Damages – If gross negligence or intentional misconduct is involved, punitive damages may be awarded.

How long do I have to file an injury claim?

Each state sets legal time limits called statutes of limitations to file injury claims. In Texas it is generally two years for personal injury, but other limits can apply based on the case type. Not filing in time can bar your claim completely. An attorney can advise you on the statute for your specific case.

Should I accept an insurance settlement?

Before accepting any settlement offer, it is wise to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to review the full value of your claim. Factors to consider:

  • Does the offer fully cover all your damages – medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, property losses, pain and suffering?
  • Are you still recovering from your injuries? Future medical expenses may not be accounted for.
  • Is the liability completely clear, or is there a chance the insurer will dispute responsibility later if new evidence appears?

An attorney can advise you on the adequacy of the offer and whether rejecting it and proceeding to trial is likely to produce a larger recovery.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning legal fees are a percentage of the final settlement or award, typically 33-40%. There are usually no upfront fees or costs to clients. If no recovery is obtained, the client owes nothing. Costs are taken out of the final settlement amount.

How long do injury cases take?

The timeline varies based on factors like case complexity, the court’s calendar, caseloads, insurance company cooperation and more. Some cases resolve in months while complex cases with substantial damages and liability disputes can take years. An experienced attorney will work to resolve your case efficiently.

More Personal Injury FAQs

Personal Injury

If you are injured in any type of accident, your first priority should be to seek immediate medical attention, even if you are not certain that you are injured. Seeking immediate medical treatment does two things: 1) it ensures injuries you sustained are diagnosed and treated; and, 2) it helps eliminate any doubt by the insurance company that your injuries were caused by the accident. 

Often, the shock and adrenaline of an accident can mask symptoms of injuries, so making the mistake of skipping a medical examination can have profound consequences. By seeking prompt medical treatment, you protect both your health and your ability to seek compensation for your injuries with the help of your attorney.

If you were in a motor vehicle accident we have also detailed here what to do after a car accident.

A skilled personal injury lawyer is necessary to get full and fair compensation for injuries you sustained in an accident. Most defendants, whether individual drivers or commercial vehicle operators, are covered by liability insurance. Those insurance companies are not obligated to protect or take care of you. Insurance companies exist to protect the defendant (their customer) who caused the wreck. 

A personal injury attorney can help you obtain compensation for every category of damages to which you are legally entitled. These damages can include things like: medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain & suffering, punitive damages, loss of limb, diminished mental function, physical impairment, scarring or disfigurement, emotional or mental trauma, and loss of consortium (in wrongful death claims). Further, you may be entitled to future medical bills, future lost income, future pain and suffering, and other damages in severe injury cases.

Uninsured Motorist (UM) Coverage can help save the day if you are hit by an uninsured driver or if you are the victim in a hit-and-run collision. In short, UM coverage is an add-on coverage that drivers can add to their auto insurance policies that will protect them in the event that they are in an auto accident with a driver who either does not have insurance or cannot be located. You can contact your insurance provider to confirm whether your policy includes UM. If you do not have this coverage, the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law recommend that you consider adding UM to your auto insurance policy today. 

Absolutely not. It’s important to leave the investigation to the professionals. They know exactly how to work a case to determine all of the facts and details.

Some of the most devastating injuries caused by careless driving happen to pedestrians. As a pedestrian, you have the same right to be free from injury and harm caused by the irresponsibility, error, or negligence of others as any motorist on the road. In is important to obtain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible if you are injured as a pedestrian. The right attorney will see that you receive the medical care you need, guide your damage claim process, and receive full compensation for your injuries.  

Typically, yes. If a family member is seriously injured or killed in an accident, or if the injured party is a minor child, then it may be appropriate under the law for a parent, spouse, relative, or legal guardian to file a claim or lawsuit on behalf of the injured or deceased party.  These types of claims are complex, and usually depend on the type of relationship involved, as well as the individual facts and circumstances of the injury. Calling the experienced personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law is step one to explore filing a legal claim on behalf of your loved one. 

If the other vehicle involved in your crash was an 18 wheeler or another commercial vehicle, call an attorney immediately. Companies who own commercial vehicles and 18 wheelers often have their own team of investigators who will arrive on the scene immediately working on the driver’s defense case. The sooner you involve an attorney of your own, the better your chances are of receiving compensation for your injuries and damages.

No. They aren’t trying to help you. They’re trying to protect their drivers and reduce their costs. That’s why they have a team of lawyers ready to flock to the scene of any accident. Don’t accept any form of compensation until you talk to your attorney. Most victims of 18 wheeler crashes sustain more injuries than victims of normal crashes, and can receive higher compensation as a result. Don’t let them fool you into accepting a smaller payout for your injuries and damages. Your injuries could require years of medications and surgeries, and the company will try everything to avoid making huge payouts. Call your attorney and let them do the negotiating on your behalf.

The best personal injury attorney has three major characteristics: Excellent customer service, cutting edge technology, and a willingness to take cases and win at trial. Ask your potential attorney about the client experience they offer, what kind of technology they use to make your life easier, and when was the last time they took a case to jury trial. Asking these types of questions will give you guidance on what kind of experience you can expect as a client and what kind of results you can expect at the end of your case.

Thompson Law has high ratings from clients for its emphasis on customer service, and its attorneys have achieved significant results on small, large, and complex cases alike. No matter if you have been involved in a minor car wreck or are dealing with catastrophic injuries from a rarer and more devastating event like a terrible workplace accident, dog bite, or an 18 wheeler wreck, Thompson Law can assist you.  

Yes! Thompson Law is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide free consultations. If you have been injured in a truck wreck or car accident, hurt in a slip and fall incident, or otherwise injured from the negligence of another person or party, give us a call any time at 1-800-LION-LAW. We can speak to you over the phone, chat online through our website or social media outlets, or arrange an in-person meeting at your convenience. Our team is ready to help! 

An insurance company will not pay medical expenses or other damages as they come due; rather, after they have accepted liability, the insurance company will make a one-time, lump-sum final payment only at the end of your case.  Dealing with medical expenses, and obtaining the proper medical care, after an accident can be tricky. But it does not have to be! Call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law, who can explain how to deal with the “day-of” hospital bills, how to continue to receive the care you need, and ultimately how to recover an appropriate settlement that takes care of your bills from the incident as well as fair and just compensation for you.

Let’s be honest: this isn’t a legal show on TV and your case will not settle in the next hour – or even tomorrow.  The true answer is: it depends.  We find that most cases settle within 7-10 months from date of incident; but the timeframe in your case could be shorter or longer depending on: the facts and circumstances of the accident; the length of time it takes you to complete medical treatment; and the character of the insurance company, or companies, involved in your case.  In the event that your case cannot settle pre-litigation and it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit, the litigation process alone can take 1 to 2 years due to the court system and legal process necessary to prepare for trial.  But because so much of the timeline depends on the facts and circumstances of your unique case, call Thompson Law today to discuss the personal injury claims process
