Personal Injury Claims
What are Personal Injuries?
Personal injuries occur every day. They include physical injuries such as a broke arm or whiplash, and sometimes include mental and emotional injuries that can accompany physical injuries. Personal injuries can happen because of an accident, or because of someone’s purposeful and intentional actions. People are injured in car, truck, and motorcycle collisions; through workplace accidents or violence, through slip and fall incidents on public and private property, and can happen just about anywhere to anyone.
Dodson Law Firm fights for people who have suffered because of the actions or inaction of others. We’ve handled vehicle accidents, gun violence injuries, assault injuries, and premises liability cases for our clients. We are committed and dedicated to obtaining the appropriate compensation for individuals who deserve justice.
Is there a time limit on a personal injury claim?
In Texas, most personal injury claims must be brought within 2 years, or they are barred by law. If you’ve been injured or experienced a personal injury, it is imperative that you speak to an attorney as soon as you can to secure your rights.
What does it cost to pursue a personal injury action?
In Texas, most personal injury claims are handled on a contingency basis. This means that you are not required to pay any out-of-pocket legal fees to have an attorney begin working on your claim.
Additionally, you will not be required to pay anything at all unless or until your claim settles and is paid, or there is a paid judgment awarded by a court. The attorney’s fees are then taken as a percentage of the recovery on your claim, when your case is closed.
If you’ve been injured, it is important that you speak with an attorney to secure your rights as soon as possible.
