Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer? 

This is one of the most common questions we get from potential clients.  And it’s an important one. The truth is you won’t get very far without an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side. Insurance companies are known for lowballing accident victims who aren’t represented by a lawyer. In fact, research indicates that accident victims who don’t hire a lawyer or wait one year or longer to do so tend to recover substantially less in damages than accident victims who are represented by lawyers.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“They Did Absolutely Everything for Us.”

As we’ve repeatedly demonstrated in courts across Texas and the United States, our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers don’t just win for our clients — we set records.

That includes a record-setting $20 Million settlement for the family of a man tragically killed by an 18-wheeler on a two-lane FM road outside of Houston, Texas. Our Undefeated Texas truck accident lawyers used evidence from the scene and the 18-wheeler’s black box to disprove the truck driver’s evolving story about what really happened that morning, and ultimately won a record-setting settlement three weeks into trial — and minutes before closing arguments.

“It was like a weight off our shoulders,” our client says.

Understanding Texas Personal Injury Law

How Personal Injury Claims Work in Texas 

Under Texas law, if you were injured in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else, you can pursue compensation for all of the physical and financial injuries you suffered from the individual or company who caused your injuries.  In order to receive compensation, however, you must prove they are at fault.  Hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer helps you hold them accountable and compensate you for all of your injuries and losses — and it can mean the difference between a $10,000,000 recovery and a $50,000 recovery. 

At Zehl & Associates, securing your future is our top priority. We help clients navigate the complexities of their case, get them the best medical care, and see that their families are cared for — forever. Though you might want to believe that insurance adjusters or the companies who caused you harm will do the right thing, they won’t. They will use every means possible to pay you as little as possible and avoid responsibility. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is the only way to fight back.

What Do I Need to Know About Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?

The first thing to know is that our undefeated Texas personal injury lawyers are here to help you every step of the way. 

Here’s what happens during the process of filing a personal injury claim:

  1. Filing a lawsuit.  When you’re injured, initiating a personal injury lawsuit is the first crucial step to recovery. Take prompt action — there is a timeframe to file your lawsuit (two years in Texas), but the quicker the better. The longer the process draws out, the more time the responsible party and their insurers have to make evidence disappear. Plus, if you wait too long, you could give up your right to hold them accountable at all. An experienced attorney can help you determine the full extent of your damages and secure your future so you don’t have to worry about the cost of medical treatments or taking care of your family ever again.  
  2. Negotiating a settlement.  After the lawsuit is filed, the parties have an opportunity to settle the case at mediation, which takes place before trial, by attempting to agree upon an amount of money that the defendant agrees to pay and that the plaintiff (you or your loved ones) is willing to accept as full compensation for their injuries and damages. In other words, a fair settlement can be reached without going to trial. But in our experience, that’s not how negotiations always play out. We repeatedly see some of the biggest trucking, bus, and oil and gas companies in the nation offer as little as they can, hoping they can get away with saving money. This is why we are always prepared to take a case to trial if necessary. Often times, the defendant will finally pay what they need to, shortly before trial, l to avoid the courtroom, where our lawyers remain undefeated. 
  3. Heading to trial (if necessary). When the defendant and plaintiff are unable to come to an agreement, the case will go to trial. Because this process can be incredibly time-consuming and complex — from discovery to depositions to jury selection and cross examinations— it is critical to not only have the experience of an undefeated trial attorney on your side, but a team with a track record of the largest settlements and verdicts in history. Our personal injury attorneys have never lost in the courtroom. We utilize the evidence and testimony presented during the trial to explain:
    • (1) Why the jury or judge must rule in favor of you, the plaintiff, and 
    • (2) How much compensation the defendant should be required to pay to make up for the injuries, medical expenses and financial loss that you suffered as a result of the defendant’s negligent or wrongful conduct. 

Our victories in the courtroom not only set records, they’ve also prompted groundbreaking safety regulations to prevent companies from continuing to put profits over safety. 

What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?  

No matter the type of accident you were in, hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer and filing a lawsuit is the only way to receive full compensation for your injuries and losses — also known as damages.

There are a number of factors that can affect the amount of damages you can recover, including:

  • The availability of evidence demonstrating how the accident occurred
  • The nature and severity of your injuries
  • The amount of insurance coverage available
  • The amount of time that elapses between the accident and when you hire a lawyer
  • Your lawyer’s experience in the courtroom and ability to take the case to trial in the event of an inadequate settlement offer 
  • If you were partially at fault for the accident
  • Your age

That’s why it’s so important to look for an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to recover ALL the damages you deserve and secure your financial future. Research even backs this up. 

A study by the Insurance Research Council suggested that, on average, plaintiffs who hire a personal injury lawyer after an accident receive settlements that are 3.5 times larger than those without a lawyer.

Types of Damages You Can Recover 

Accident victims are entitled to compensatory damages. These are damages that compensate you for your physical injuries and financial losses.

Compensatory damages can be further broken down into “economic” and “non-economic” damages, both of which are recoverable under Texas law. 

Economic Damages

Economic (or General) damages compensate you for actual, out-of-pocket losses and expenses you incurred as a result of your injury. They can be added up with a calculator by looking through the bills and summing up the total costs. 

Economic damages include:

  • Past and future lost wages
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future loss of household services
  • Funeral and burial costs in wrongful death cases  

Noneconomic Damages

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate you for what we call “human losses.” 

Non-economic damages are the most important damages, but they can be very complex to calculate and prove. They are unique to every person and can include:

  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future mental anguish 
  • Past and future physical impairment
  • Past and future physical disfigurement
What About Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages (also called exemplary damages) could also be awarded by a judge or jury to make an example of a defendant’s reckless and egregious conduct if this defendant was “grossly negligent” and acted with malice, wantonness, or a total indifference to the consequences of their actions. 

For instance, if a company fails to use a piece of safety equipment knowing that someone could be seriously injured or killed without it, the company could be punished with punitive damages.

To learn more about the damages available to you and the unique factors that affect how much you’re able to recover, see our comprehensive guide on what damages you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit.

What is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The truth is, there is no simple answer for how much your personal injury case is worth.  

When it comes to valuing your case, here’s what you need to know: 

  • Every person is unique, and so is every personal injury case, which is why values depend on the person and the nature of their injuries and losses    
  • You can’t determine the value of your case using a calculator on a legal website  
  • Numerous factors contribute to the value of your case, so it’s not something that can be determined over a phone call or during the initial case consultation   
  • You will recover more money working with an experienced personal injury lawyer than you will trying to handle your case on your own  

The benefit of working with an experienced personal injury lawyer is that we have the experience, skills, and resources to ensure that our clients receive the maximum compensation possible. As a result, insurance companies and defense lawyers tend to treat our clients more fairly and their cases more seriously.

How Our Undefeated Texas Personal Injury Lawyers Maximize Compensation

Hiring an experienced Texas personal injury attorney significantly increases your chances of recovering larger damages. We spend a lot of time identifying and learning about your recoverable damages when we’re working on your case. 

A few things we look at when deciding how much to demand as damages in your personal injury lawsuit:

  • How severe are your injuries? 
  • Were you employed at the time of the accident?  
  • Did you go to the ER and get released or did you have to spend weeks in the hospital? 
  • Did you heal on your own, or did you have to have surgery?
  • How much insurance coverage does the at-fault person or company have?

We always put our clients, their families, and their futures first.

What To Do Immediately After an Accident 

Every decision you make following an accident can have far-reaching consequences. Though you may feel shocked, disoriented and distressed, taking the right steps immediately after the event is crucial for safeguarding your well-being and securing your future.

1. Seek medical attention. Call emergency services if there are injuries. Even if injuries seem minor, seek medical attention promptly. Keep records of all medical evaluations, treatments, and expenses.

2. Contact law enforcement after a car or truck accident. Report the accident to the police and cooperate fully. Follow their instructions and provide all necessary information. Obtain a copy of the official police report and familiarize yourself with what’s in it. A police report will be essential for insurance claims and legal purposes. 

3. Preserve Evidence. Secure witness statements and their contact information. Keep any relevant items, such as damaged clothing or personal belongings. 

4. Do NOT speak to or sign anything from insurance companies. Speaking to the other side’s insurance adjuster (i.e., giving a recorded statement or signing anything) could jeopardize your right to obtain compensation for all of your injuries and losses. Whatever you do, refrain from making statements that could be construed as an admission of guilt. Stick to the facts when interacting with other parties and with law enforcement.

6. Contact a Texas Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible. Contact our experienced Texas Personal Injury Lawyers for immediate guidance. NEVER attempt to negotiate with the people or company at fault for your injuries or their insurer on your own. As soon as an accident happens, the company’s insurers get to work right away trying to hide and bury evidence, play down the severity of what happened, and even blame you for your own injuries. 

Following these immediate steps and seeking legal counsel as soon as possible will help you navigate the complexities of a personal injury case and substantially increase your chances of success. 

How Do I Know if I Need a Texas Personal Injury Lawyer?

 If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible:

  • Do the people or company who caused you harm say they are NOT responsible? If someone who caused you harm says they aren’t at fault, contact a personal injury attorney right away. Only an experienced personal injury lawyer can examine the details of your incident, conduct a comprehensive investigation (including acquiring all the official reports and evidence a defendant wants to hide, and knowing the best expert witnesses to call upon), and ensure that the party is held accountable for their actions. After an accident, proving that someone is at fault for causing your injuries is critical for securing compensation. You won’t be able to prove it without an undefeated Texas personal injury attorney on your side.
  • Are you trapped in an unending struggle with their insurance company? Insurance companies have substantial resources and prioritize cost-savings over everything. That means they only care about saving money, not making sure you are fully compensated for your injuries. Furthermore, they will do everything in their power to pay you as little as possible after an accident.  Always contact an experienced personal injury lawyer before you interact with an insurance company in any way after an accident.
  • Are you unsure how to navigate the legal process? Personal injury claim regulations vary from state to state, each with its specific set of laws and deadlines. Filing your claim promptly is crucial to preserving your legal rights. A seasoned Texas personal injury attorney possesses comprehensive knowledge of these procedures and ensures the accurate and timely completion of all pertinent paperwork, safeguarding your ability to pursue legal action.
  • Did you sustain serious injuries or tragically lose a loved one? When your injuries have profound and lasting effects, such as traumatic brain injuries, burns, or the death of a loved one, compensation helps cover the medical bills piling up AND make sure your financial future is secure. An experienced personal injury lawyer can skillfully negotiate for the highest possible damages, increasing the likelihood of securing a more substantial settlement. We enlist the top medical professionals in their fields to assist in your care and recovery and to serve as expert witnesses when necessary.
  • Do you feel overwhelmed and confused on how to take action? Step one is contacting an experienced personal injury attorney who will walk you through your legal rights and options.Our Texas personal injury lawyers stand with you through every step of the legal journey. Even if you don’t hire us, we will make sure you have the information needed to make the best decision for you and your family. 

Remember, every personal injury claim and outcome is different. But one constant is the significant impact of having an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do I have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas?

The amount of time you have to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit before your claim is legally — and forever — barred is called the statute of limitations. 

According to Chapter 16, Section 16.003 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies code, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in Texas. 

Two years may sound like a lot of time to file a lawsuit, but the longer you wait, the harder it becomes for even an experienced personal injury attorney to preserve evidence and recover damages.

For statutes of limitations for other states, please read our comprehensive guide on how long you have to file a personal injury claim

How do I pay my bills when my personal injury lawsuit is pending?

The bills don’t stop just because you’ve been injured. Our clients don’t have to worry about how they’re going to pay their mortgage, the light bills, the car payment, or a child’s tuition because we make sure to cover our clients’ necessary and reasonable expenses as their case is pending. 

This way, our clients can focus on what matters most. 

Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas?

In Texas, individuals who have suffered injuries due to another’s negligence possess the right to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. The party initiating the legal action is the plaintiff, typically the individual harmed in the incident. Conversely, the defendant is the person or entity against whom the plaintiff is pursuing legal recourse.

In cases involving wrongful death, where a loved one has lost their life due to someone else’s reckless or negligent actions, the following individuals are generally eligible to file a lawsuit:

  • The spouse of the deceased
  • The parent of the deceased
  • Any surviving children of the deceased
  • The executor of the deceased’s estate (if immediate family members do not file a wrongful death claim within three months).

How long will my personal injury case take?

It depends on two things.

  1. How quickly the court will give your personal injury attorney a trial setting. In our experience, defendants don’t offer what they need to pay on the case until you are close to trial or at trial. 
  2. How cooperative or uncooperative the defendants are. Our goal is to get the case resolved as quickly as possible while insuring that our clients are getting the maximum recovery that’s available to him.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?

It costs you nothing up front.  Our undefeated personal injury attorneys work on what is called a “contingency fee basis.” That means you don’t pay us anything until we win — either through settlement or through a verdict at trial. 

We front all the case costs. We finance all the experts and everything else associated with your case until we win. The amount of your expenses depends on the complexity of your case. Our goal is to limit our clients’ expenses as much as possible, but we also have to devote whatever time and resources are necessary to increasing your recovery.

I was partly at fault for my accident. Can I still recover damages?

It depends. In Texas, you can still seek damages if you are found to be less than 51% at fault for an accident.  But if you are partially responsible for the accident, it will directly impact how much compensation you may recover.  Under Texas law, the amount of compensation you are able to recover will be adjusted depending on how at-fault you were for the accident. 

Additionally, the other party’s insurers will do everything in their power to minimize their own responsibility while trying to prove you were more at fault than you were.
