    Personal Injury Law in Austin, TX

    Statute of Limitations

    In Texas, a general rule is that personal injury cases must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. Don’t delay in hiring an auto accident attorney. The sooner you sign up with an attorney, the faster they can help advise you and help you get the compensation you deserve.

    How long does a personal injury case last?

    Many personal injury cases only last six months or one year. The length personal injury litigation varies by case. Once a claim is filed, an attorney typically waits for the client to treat their injuries. Until the client reaches a stable point in their physical treatment, it is difficult to properly assess long term damages sustained in the personal injury accident. Not all cases go to trial. Many settle out of court for the benefit of the plaintiff. Going to court can be a costly and traumatic event. Oftentimes, a satisfactory result can be reached through personal injury negotiations. Each of these elements of a case will help determine the duration of a personal injury case.

    Experienced personal injury representation

    Attorneys must be licensed to practice law in Texas by passing the Texas State Bar Exam. And once licensed, an attorney must complete continuing education hours. These requirements are the bare minimum. Attorneys of McMinn Law Firm have combined over 30 years of experience representing Austin area auto accident victims in Texas courtrooms.

    What to Expect with Car Accident Attorneys of McMinn Law Firm

    • Fast to respond – we maintain good communication with clients
    • Contingency fee agreement
    • Medical Expenses. Have access to the highest quality medical care.
    • Premium experience at no out of pocket cost to you. McMinn Law Firm offers competitive rates
    • Tax free personal injury settlement
    • A+ Business Rating
    • Compensation for your Austin Car Accident Injuries

      Personal injuries have serious effects on a victim’s life. At-fault parties are held responsible for the harm inflicted on personal injury victims and their families. A compensation claim should include payment for mental and physical suffering due to the incident. Select cases that go to court may include punitive damages.

      Austin accident attorneys work to negotiate for tax free personal injury settlements that include remuneration for physical damages, mental anguish, and changes to a person or family’s livelihood. Personal injury damages include:

      • Medical bills due to the accident, both past and future
      • Lost wages, your loss of income due to injuries sustained in the crash
      • Lost future wages, or loss of earning potential
      • Costs directly and indirectly related to disability such as buying a more expensive vehicle, widening doorways, barriers to work, and more.
      • Accident related transportation costs

      Your attorney will also advocate for your right to recover damages that cannot be evaluated as a sum of an equation. Personal injury victims can be compensated for non-economic damages such as pain and mental anguish. In addition to property damages, most clients receive compensation for the pain they endured as a result of of the accident.

      How Can You Get the Most Out of Your Auto Accident Case?

      If you’ve started to think about hiring an attorney to help with medical bills after an accident, you’re on the right track. Hiring an experienced attorney is one step to securing the best financial outcome after a crash. Your timing, commitment to treating injuries, and following guidance of your auto accident attorney will also help ensure you see the best results.

      Seek Medical Attention

      After an auto accident, people often enter a state of heightened adrenaline. Surviving a serious auto crash pushes the body into overdrive. Although this is a healthy response, medical professionals still advise car accident patients to seek help as soon as possible. Don’t wait for painful injuries to appear to seek medical help. Time allows injuries to set and the body may not heal correctly without professional care.

      The severity of your injuries will determine in part your ability to seek medical compensation from the accident. Having a strong track record of medical assistance illustrates to insurance adjusters and potential jury members the reality of the situation. You needed medical care for serious injuries, and the at-fault party is responsible for paying for it.

      Call For Professional Help from Law Enforcement Immediately

      Call the police after an auto accident. Without a police report, the other party will claim no-fault. It is in the best interest of their insurance provider to deny any fault, even if they admitted fault at the scene of the accident. The report from an unbiased third party will help in determining fault, who to hold accountable after the accident.

      Collect Evidence from the Scene of the Accident

      If possible, take photos of the scene immediately after an accident. Or ask someone else who witnessed the crash to take photos. Crucial evidence from an auto accident will help your attorney build a case.
