Austin Personal Injury Case Settlements and Verdicts

Skip to quick summaries of selected recent client cases and results.

We understand the difference that fair verdicts and settlements can make to our clients and their families.  McMinn Law Firm represents a broad range of cases, from very visible public event cases litigated in front of a jury to an individual’s car accident injury claim negotiated with an insurance company outside of court.

If you are deciding on an Austin personal injury lawyer, keep in mind there are many different kinds of personal injury and accident law firms. Some firms limit their clients to high-profile cases that not only have the potential to earn compensation for the victim and the firm, but also can be counted on to provide publicity for the firm.

That’s not how Jason McMinn nor Justin McMinn evaluate and choose client cases. Instead, we want to help injury and accident victims. We choose cases for which McMinn Law Firm can best use our expertise to try to win fair compensation for victims and their families.
