Dallas Personal Injury Lawyers

Suffering a personal injury can be a life-altering event for you and your family. Every day people are injured due to circumstances out of their control, such as distracted drivers, unsafe premises, elder or daycare abuse, unsecured animals, and overworked commercial vehicle operators. The large number of hazardous situations the average person confronts daily explains why around  39 million people in the US are treated in emergency rooms every year, according the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).

After you’ve been injured in any accident, you may not know who to turn to next when dealing with the insurance companies. The Dallas personal injury lawyers at Thompson Law will fight for you, and make sure the other party is held responsible. Attorney Ryan Thompson and your entire legal team at Thompson Law will be there every step of the way:  explaining details of the legal process, defending your rights, and ensuring you receive the maximum settlement possible.

Along with the pain, personal injury accident victims often suffer from not being able to perform many of their daily life routines. The physical and emotional trauma accident victims endure – and the financial burdens they incur – frequently feels overwhelming.  Fortunately, the state laws in Texas offer protection for people suffering injuries due to the negligence of another party. Despite the law being in your favor, obtaining fair and just compensation following a personal injury is generally not an easy undertaking.  Fighting with insurance companies is always difficult, and it becomes even more so after you have experienced an injury and are at your weakest.  At such times, the experienced team of injury lawyers at Thompson Law can take these burdens off your shoulders, so you can focus on what matters most:  getting better.

When Should I File for a Personal Injury Claim?

After a motor vehicle collision resulting in vehicle damage or bodily injury, for example, you can file a claim with your insurance company. The insurance providers for all parties involved in the accident will then work together to establish fault. The time-frame in which you should file a claim differs depending on your insurance provider and/or state in which you live. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you avoid common mistakes following a collision to ensure you secure full and fair compensation.

While the statute of limitations does vary, there are general guidelines that can be followed by everyone to make sure that your claim is filed on time.  In Texas, the statute of limitations generally states that you have 2 years from the date of the accident to file a claim.  For best results, you should report an accident as soon as possible after it happens. If you feel that you have not received the compensation you deserve, you should pursue the case with a personal injury lawyer.

Why Do You Need a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many people are under the false impression that insurance companies are there to help you. Often, people don’t see the value of hiring a lawyer after a loss or an injury and think that it is unnecessary to file a claim. They believe that they can handle the case on their own, or that their insurance company will take care of them. Unfortunately, this often ends up costing them the compensation they are rightfully entitled to, due to difficulty people often have answering the question “What is my claim worth?”

Here’s why you should work with an experienced personal injury attorney after an accident:

  • Our Interests Are Aligned: Unlike insurance companies that are more concerned about their profits at the expense of your welfare and health, an attorney at Thompson Law will act as your advocate.  Calls and consultations are free, and there is no fee unless we win your case.
  • We Argue for and Establish Fault/Liability: Having a skilled lawyer is crucial to proving fault in your case. We have a team of investigators who revisit the scene of the accident, collect necessary evidence, and interview witnesses. We will work to ensure that there is no doubt regarding liability.
  • We Understand the Details of Texas Law: Besides filing complex paperwork, Texas has strict laws and regulations regarding personal injury claims. Our attorneys have extensive experience and knowledge, leveraging their experience for the benefit of our clients. We will ensure that you receive the just compensation you deserve.
  • We Have the Expertise to Help Evaluate and Assess Damages: Since we have handled various types of personal injury cases over many years, we are aware of monetary damages you might not be, including: healthcare expenses, future medical care, lost wages, travel expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, and physical pain and suffering.
  • Your Peace of Mind: Your personal injury accident may have left you traumatized and facing significant medical bills. Victims might temporarily or permanently be unable to earn a living as a result of an accident. An injury attorney will help you locate proper treatment to properly assess injuries and ensure just and fair compensation.

Who Can I Sue for Injuries from an Accident?

Many personal injury claims involve multiple parties who may be held liable for damages sustained from an accident. When someone suffers a severe injury – such as broken bones or spinal cord injury – sometimes the individual responsible for the accident might not have an adequate insurance coverage to fully compensate the victim(s).

Often people find it difficult to understand how to shop for the right insurance for them, or what their insurance coverage even entails. The Texas minimum auto insurance liability limits for motor vehicle collisions, for example, are relatively low. Texas requires drivers to carry at a minimum the following auto insurance coverage:

  • Bodily Injury Liability: $30,000 (per person) $60,000 (total per accident)
  • Property Damage Liability: $25,000
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): $2,500 (optional coverage, requiring rejection in writing)
  • Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury: $30,000 per person $60,000 per accident (Optional Coverage)
  • Uninsured Motorist Property Damage: $25,000 with $250 deductible (Optional Coverage)

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), the estimated cost of accident-related injuries is around $72,000 for incapacitating injuries and around $23,400 for non-incapacitating injuries. These estimates include lost wages, vehicle damages, and medical expenses; but, do not take into consideration pain and suffering, diminished future earning capacity, adverse impact to lifestyle, and a plethora of other problems resulting from accidents. Due to the large sum of uninsured and underinsured motorists, a personal injury attorney will carefully investigate all circumstances relating to the accident and identify all the potential defendants with insurance coverage.

Parties who might be held financially responsible for your damages in a lawsuit include:

  • Drivers: When a motor vehicle driver engages in unsafe driving practices, fails to pay attention to the road or violates traffic safety laws, the vehicle operator may be liable for the victim’s injuries. These instances are basis for imposing the presumption of negligence.
  • Owners of Premises: Owners of public, residential, and commercial property can be held liable for injuries that occur on their property. When you are injured on the property of another entity or individual, you might be able to file a claim for damages based on premises liability law.
  • Public Entities: When space is owned by the government and they are held liable for injuries. In order to sue the government for any reason, you must have the governments permission. The U.S. Constitution grants public entities sovereign immunity from civil lawsuits, making claims against government entities far more complicated. Victims must comply with special procedures and notice requirements in order to pursue a claim against a government entity in Texas. The Texas Tort Claims Act (Section 101 of the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code) grants permission to sue for limited circumstances that are defined under the statute.
  • Vehicle Owners: When an individual allows someone else to use his or her vehicle, the vehicle owner may be held liable for the damages that occur. For example, a claim may exist when lending vehicles to underage drivers, a person who has had their license suspended, someone whose vehicle has been impounded for drunk driving, or someone without insurance
  • Employers: When an employee is performing job-related functions and is injured on the job, the employer is responsible for any work-related accidents under workers’ compensation.

Our Areas of Expertise

Thompson Law Injury attorneys have the necessary skills and expertise to fight for your fair compensation. Our core practice areas are:

  • Car Accidents: According to the Texas Department of Transportation (DOT), in the city of Dallas alone, there were a total of 32,056 reported car crashes in 2017 with a total of 13,126 resulting in injuries. Car wrecks can result in severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), dismemberment, burn injuries, lacerations or severe scarring, bone fractures or dislocations, neck and spine injuries, and more. Hiring an injury lawyer increases your chances of filing a successful claim and receiving fair compensation.
  • Truck Accidents: Unlike car accidents, truck and commercial vehicle accidents can be more complex, as large trucks can cause catastrophic damages. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) stated that in 2017, 4,657 18-wheelers were involved in fatal crashes.  According to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) crash file, 56,422 truckers were involved in crashes that resulted in serious injuries. If you are involved in a truck accident with an 18-wheeler, cement truck or other commercial vehicle, you need an attorney who has worked similar cases to be on your side.
  • Motorcycle, Bicycle, Scooter and Similar Motorized Vehicle Accidents: Motorcycles and bikes lack the protection that a car or truck provides, so any collision is likely to result in more serious injuries or death. Motorcycle deaths account for 14% of all motor vehicle deaths. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration noted in 2017 that on a per mile traveled basis, the number of deaths on motorcycles was 28 times that in cars. Similarly, bicyclists also face a higher risk of injury than occupants of motor vehicles. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that in 2015, over 1,000 bicycle riders died and almost 500,000 experienced bicycle related injuries.
  • Workplace Accidents: Workplace injuries can be quite complicated, as it can be difficult to determine who is responsible. In Texas, there are two types of workplace injury claims:  workers’ compensation (WC) and WC non-subscribers. A personal injury attorney can help determine if your employer carries workers compensation insurance, or if they are a “non-subscriber”. If your employer does not carry workers compensation insurance, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim against your employer.
  • Premises Liability and Other Cases: We may be able to represent you in claims arising from a variety of other premises liability and other cases, such as: swimming pool accidents, slip-and-falls, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, fires, wrongful death, and other injuries resulting from dangerous property situations.

The Personal Injury Claim Process

  1. Filing a Claim: You need the services of an experienced attorney who will calculate the value of the damages caused and work out an acceptable settlement amount. At Thompson Law our initial consultation and case evaluation are free. Here we look at the merits of your case and advise you on the best course of action.
  2. Gathering Evidence: We immediately begin the process of gathering evidence to determine the cause of the accident. We will take your statement and those of the accident witnesses, gather police and medical reports, and consult with relevant experts on the extent of your injuries.
  3. Negotiating Your Claim: We will be able to negotiate with the insurance company of the at fault party on your behalf. If we’re unable to receive a reasonable settlement for you, we will file a lawsuit. We highly recommend consulting an experienced attorney before accepting any settlement offers from an insurer, as many unscrupulous insurance companies offer you a low-ball settlement before the extent of your injuries are known.
  4. Judgment or Settlement: Having an experienced injury lawyer representing you helps ensure that we will use all our skills and resources to pursue a maximum settlement or verdict on your case. After the settlement, we will ensure that the funds get to you as quickly as possible, and guide you through any potential tax implications, if applicable.

Your health and safety are the most important thing, and your first priority should be seeking immediate attention from a hospital or doctor. Not sure that you’re injured or how serious your injury might be? You should still seek immediate medical attention if you are in a car accident, truck wreck or any other type of accident. 

Getting immediate medical treatment does two things: First, it makes sure that any injuries you sustained are properly diagnosed and treated and second, it helps eliminate any doubt that your injuries were caused by the accident. Often, the shock and adrenaline of an accident can mask symptoms of injury, but making the mistake to skip getting checked out can have serious consequences. By seeking prompt medical treatment, you protect both your health and your ability to seek compensation for medical bills and time off work, with the help of your attorney. 

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?2020-01-23T12:11:09-06:00

A competent and skilled personal injury lawyer is almost always necessary to get full and fair compensation for injuries you have 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. They are there to take care of the defendant (their customer) who caused your wreck or accident. 

An expert personal injury attorney should be able to help you not only force that insurance company to pay for the injuries and damages the defendant caused, but will also do their best to make sure that you are compensated for every category of damages you may be entitled to, some of which you may not even be aware of: medical bills, future surgical costs, time off work in the past or time you may have to take off in the future, as well as the pain, suffering, and impairment that many injured people experience. 

What Factors Affect My Claim’s Value?2020-01-23T12:12:12-06:00

The largest factor affecting your claim’s value is the severity or magnitude of your injuries. More severe injuries typically require more medical treatment. So it is essential to have all your injuries documented properly by seeking immediate treatment with doctors or hospitals, and continuing under the care and direction of your doctors as long as necessary to heal. Without prompt and consistent medical treatment and documentation, an injury claim becomes very difficult to pursue, let alone win. 

Of course, other factors an also have an impact, and each and every case is different.  Were you injured in a commercial vehicle wreck or truck wreck that totaled your car, or was it a fender bender that did very little damage? Was the other driver intoxicated or drunk, or speeding? A multitude of factors may play into your claim’s overall likely value.  An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to visit with you and talk to you more specifically about factors which may affect your particular claim.  

Who Should I Call Immediately After Leaving the Scene of an Accident?2018-11-18T21:52:31-06:00

Call an attorney. Your first instinct might be to call your insurance company, but it’s best to seek legal council first so you don’t accidentally admit guilt or take responsibility for the accident. In many cases your attorney will call the insurance company for you to prevent that from happening.

Should I Conduct My Own Investigation?2018-11-18T21:53:20-06:00

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.

How Long Do I have to File a Claim?2020-01-23T12:13:39-06:00

The real question here is how soon should you contact a personal injury attorney, and the answer is as soon as possible! In Texas, you generally have two (2) years to file a personal injury claim before it is barred by the statute of limitations. However, other states may have different time limits, and you may not always be able to tell on your own which state’s limitations apply to your case! The safest course of action for anybody injured in a car wreck, truck wreck, slip and fall, or any other type of case, is to immediately consult with a personal injury attorney in your area.   

This will help you make sure that your claim will not miss the applicable limitations period.  But second, and just as importantly, it will make sure that the right investigations are conducted and the right steps are taken to preserve the evidence, photos, witness statements, and records needed to successfully pursue your claim in court, should that become necessary. 

What Happens If the Other Driver Does Not Have Insurance?2020-01-23T12:25:11-06:00

If you are injured in a hit-and-run wreck (and are unable to locate the driver) or are hurt in a collision where the other driver does not have insuranceyou are not necessarily out of options in terms of financial recovery. You may still be able to recover for your personal injuries if your own policy has Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage or Personal Injury Protection (PIP). It’s a good idea to contact your insurance company to confirm what types of coverage you have on your policy before an accident, but if you have been hit be sure to ask these questions before finalizing your claim request. Even if you do not have UM or PIP, the attorneys and investigators at Thompson Law can work to track down the other driver in a hit-and-run accident. To do this, we rely on witnesses who may have captured a photo of the car or license plate and/or available surveillance camera footage that might have captured the wreck.  

What Damages Can I Recover?2020-01-23T12:26:33-06:00

If you are injured in an accident, the robust team of attorneys, paralegals and investigators at Thompson Law is ready to fight to help you get the money you deserve. Damages can include doctor and hospital bills, lost wages, property damage, and can include pain and suffering and even punitive damages in certain cases.  

What Is Uninsured Motorist (UM) Coverage?2020-01-23T12:27:41-06:00

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. 

What is Comparative Negligence?2018-10-18T11:20:51-05:00

Knowing how comparative negligence works is vital if you live in a state that uses it. In simple terms, comparative negligence implies both drivers can share fault for an accident, but one driver can be more at fault than the other. For example, you are texting while driving when another driver runs a stop sign and hits your car.

A jury finds that the driver who ran the stop sign is 80 percent at fault, but they believe you would have had a better chance of avoiding the accident if you were not texting at the time. They find you 20 percent at fault. You can only collect enough compensation to cover the other driver’s fault. In this case, you would get $8,000 if the jury thinks your case is worth $10,000.

What Happens When the Police Arrive on the Scene?2020-01-23T11:55:38-06:00

Having the police respond to the accident scene is of paramount importance. Make sure that YOU call them and insist that they come and investigate the accident. When the police arrive, they will separate the drivers and witnesses from one another and take statements from everyone involved. Be cooperative, detailed, and firm in describing the accident. The investigating officer will usually determine fault based upon these statements, and it is essential that your version of the events is heard and believed. If you think that you may be injured, make that clear to the officer. If an ambulance or other medical professionals arrive on scene, get checked out. If not, make plans to visit an emergency room or doctor soon after you leave the scene. Before you do leave for this care, the officer will provide you with a report number and their contact information. Make sure this information is safely saved, as it will be very important in any auto accident injury claim you may have.     

The Insurance Company Says My Car Is Totaled. Now What?2020-01-23T11:58:20-06:00

In insurance terms, “totaled” or a “total loss” means that the cost to repair your vehicle to its pre-accident condition is more than the vehicle is worth. Each insurance company has a different threshold for determining if a vehicle is totaled, but generally, if its close, you want the insurance company to “total” your car. Following the determination that your car is a total loss, the insurance company will provide you with their assessment of the value of your car. An experienced auto accident attorney should review this estimate to make sure that you are truly receiving fair market value for your loss.  You absolutely have the right to challenge their assessment, and a skilled attorney knows the best way to do so to maximize your recovery.  

A Family Member Was Injured in an Accident. Can I File a Lawsuit?2020-01-23T12:45:15-06:00

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 I’m Partly to Blame for the Accident, Can I Still File a Case?2020-01-23T12:37:55-06:00

Even if you are partially to blame for a car accident, you may be able to recover some of your damages from the other party. Under Texas’s proportionate responsibility system (also known as comparative negligence), unless you as the claimant/plaintiff are determined more than 51% at fault, you may recover legal damages that are reduced by the percentage you are determined at fault. For example, if you are determined to be 30% at fault, you can recover 70% of your damages from the other responsible party (you can’t recover the other 30% because that was the amount of liability that was determined to lie with you). The personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law can help you navigate this proportionate responsibility system – so reach out online or call anytime for a free consultation.

I had a slip & fall accident. Do I need to hire a lawyer?2020-01-23T12:58:38-06:00

Absolutely.  Premises liability cases, sometimes called “slip and fall” accidents, can be difficult to prove and require prompt action to preserve the evidence and witness statements you will need to pursue a claim. Additionally, Texas law on premises liability has become extremely difficult to navigate and unfavorable for injured parties. Your chances of receiving fair and just compensation for your injuries from a slip and fall increase significantly with a tenacious personal injury lawyer on your side. 

How do I know you are the right personal injury attorney for my case?2020-01-23T12:59:54-06:00

The right 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, LLP 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.

I was just in an accident. What do I need to do first?2020-01-23T15:44:56-06:00

Being in a wreck, especially on the highway, can be a terrifying experience. Remember these 6 steps to make sure you are safe and to help preserve your legal case right from the start: 

  1. GET SAFE. Stop your vehicle/move it to a safe place if you are able. Stay close to the scene without obstructing traffic. Activate your emergency flashing lights to prevent other cars from striking you. 
  2. CALL 9-1-1. If you are seriously injured, be sure you request an ambulance when you call. A police report may become critical evidence in determining liability in your case. The police will respond to wrecks involving injuries but may not send a unit for cases involving property damage only.  
  3. TAKE PHOTOS. If you are able to safely do so, take photos of your vehicle, the other vehicle (including the license plate), and the surrounding scene of the accident. You will also want to photograph the other driver’s license and insurance card.  
  4. GATHER INFO. After making sure you and passengers are okay, exchange contact information and insurance information with the other driver.  
  5. FIND WITNESSES. If there are witnesses to the accident, take down their names and contact information. Their statements may help resolve any liability disputes.  
  6. CALL THOMPSON LAW. The experienced team of attorneys, investigators and paralegals are ready to assist you right away. You can even call us to meet you at the scene of an accident.  
I was a passenger in an accident. Can I still claim damages?2020-01-23T13:01:51-06:00

Yes! Passengers in auto accidents are entitled to make claims for their damages and injuries too.  As a negligence-free passenger, who you make a claim against (one or both drivers and their insurance companies), and what coverages are available (third-party liability, first-party coverages, and/or personal injury protection), depends on the specific facts and circumstances of the car wreck.  Injured passengers should call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law to assist in navigating these complex issues so that they may receive the fair compensation they deserve.    

I was hit by a car while riding my bike. What do I need to do?2020-01-23T13:02:15-06:00

Bike accidents unfortunately occur more and more often and can cause serious and severe injuries to the cyclist.   

First, stay at the scene.  As soon as it is safe, assess the situation and call 9-1-1 to report the incident.  

Second, when help arrives, receive emergency medical attention.  Get “checked out” even if you think you are okay—the trauma and shock of the collision can cause your body to block out pain and injury. Follow the medical advice of the emergency response team. 

Third, with assistance from the police, exchange and obtain information, such as insurance information as well as the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses, passengers, and drivers.  DO NOT discuss the facts and circumstances of the bike accident with anyone other than the investigating officer.   

Fourth, document the scene.  Make notes on paper or using your cell phone about the time of day; weather conditions; road or traffic conditions; lighting; location of the vehicles and involved parties; and any relevant road signs, traffic control devices (lights, stop signs, yield signs) etc.  Also, make sure to get photographs of your bike, the driver’s car, and the scene.  

Last, call Thompson Law Injury Lawyers today.  The experienced personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law will help you investigate all applicable insurance coverages and fight to get the compensation to which you are entitled.   

After an accident, how do my medical expenses and other damages get paid?2020-01-23T13:02:50-06:00

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. 

How long is the case process?2020-01-23T13:03:34-06:00

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, that 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.
