The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

We Prove Negligence in Your Personal Injury Case

Any personal injury lawsuit requires establishing the defendant’s liability for your accident and injuries. This requirement includes proving through evidence the four elements of negligence:

  • Duty of care: The defendant had a responsibility to behave in an acceptable manner that anyone else in their position would behave reasonably.  
  • Breach of duty: The defendant failed in their responsibility and, either through action or inaction, placed you in danger of harm.
  • Causation: The defendant’s action or inaction led to an accident or incident that caused you harm.
  • Damages: The harm you suffered has led to physical injury, emotional distress, and financial losses.

Your personal injury claim must prove the defendant owed you a duty of care, they breached their duty, it led to your accident, and you suffered losses as a result of that accident.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Austin?

We understand the financial strain accident victims may be experiencing, so we work on a contingency fee basis. Under a contingency fee agreement, you only pay attorney fees if you recover compensation for your losses. Any fees we recover come from the settlement or judgment we recover on your behalf. If you do not recover compensation, then you do not pay attorney fees.

What Are Common Injuries Sustained in Personal Injury Accidents?

A severe injury can cause significant, long-lasting complications, require long-term medical care, and affect your ability to work and earn for your family. Your Austin personal injury attorney from our firm will make sure your case accounts for all the losses you experienced because of the injury, not just the short-term, immediate losses. 

We’ve represented personal injury victims with various types of serious injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries may result when someone strikes their head during an accident or fall, or the force of the impact is so severe it causes the brain to crash into the interior of the skull. These injuries can result in long-term complications and impair quality of life.
  • Catastrophic Injuries: Some accidents can result in catastrophic injuries that result in the loss of a limb, spinal cord injury, disfigurement, or other serious injury.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Soft tissue injuries can occur when muscles, tendons, or ligaments tear during an accident. Whiplash from auto accidents is an example of a soft tissue injury.
  • Fractures: People hurt in accidents or falls may experience fractures. Some broken bones can be quite serious and require extensive care and treatment.
  • Wrongful Death: While no amount of compensation can ever return your loved one to you, a wrongful death case may help ease some of the financial burden caused by the unexpected death of your loved one.

Types of Damages in Your Personal Injury Lawsuit

It’s vital to account for the short- and long-term effects of your injuries. Do not agree to an insurance company’s settlement offer if it fails to account for your injury’s long-term treatment needs. Similarly, do not agree to a settlement that fails to account for how your injuries will affect your ability to work, emotional well-being, or physical pain and suffering.

Talk to our personal injury lawyers in Austin before you accept a settlement offer. Our legal team can retrieve medical records, work with expert witnesses, and build a case that fully demonstrates the expenses and losses associated with your injury—now and into the future.

Some of the types of losses you may recover from the at-fault parties include:

  • Medical expenses, including hospital bills, doctor visits, surgeries, and other care
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages while recovering from your injuries
  • Reduced earning capacity if your injuries affect your ability to work
  • Pain and suffering and other noneconomic losses

The value of damages you recover in either a settlement or judgment depends on the specifics of your case. Our attorneys and staff work diligently to prove the full extent of your losses so you recover the compensation you need and deserve.

What is the Statute Of Limitations in Texas for Personal Injury Lawsuits?

Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, the state generally allows injured people only two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Those who lost a family member in a wrongful death accident also face a two-year statute of limitations. There may also be exceptions in your case to affect this deadline, such as the victim being underage could lengthen that deadline. 

You should also be aware that if you do not file your lawsuit by the deadline, you may be unable to bring legal action and get the compensation you need.

To avoid this costly mistake, act quickly. The legal team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins is ready to help. Call us today.
