How much is my claim worth?
The exact value of any
personal injury claim cannot be determined before a settlement is agreed upon by both parties;
however, some factors can help make an estimate. Avoid any lawyer or firm
that "promises" or "guarantees" that they can recover
a specific amount for your case.
Personal injury involves some damages that have a set value and some damages that are
emotional in nature. Medical bills can easily be calculated, but the value
of emotional damages such as pain or suffering cannot. At Chavez Law Firm,
we will never promise to recover an
exact amount for your case, but we can assure you that we will fight for the
highest possible amount.
Who can file a claim for personal injury?
Anyone who has been injured as a direct result of someone else's negligence
has the right to file a claim for compensation. As long as you played
no part in causing your injuries and other damages, you can recover compensation
by establishing the other party's liability. Our firm has handled
countless personal injury cases. We have the experience to gather evidence
and to hold the responsible party accountable for your damages.
What kinds of personal injury cases does your firm handle?
At Chavez Law Firm, we handle all types of personal injury cases. Some
of the most common cases we handle include
dangerous and defective products, and
premises safety and security cases. We also represent clients filing for
wrongful death in case you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident of any kind.
What damages can I recover with a personal injury claim?
Personal injury cases can involve financial, physical, emotional, and
property damages. Financial damages include medical bills; gas mileage
to and from doctors' appointments; property damage repairs; and more.
Physical damages are the injuries that the victim suffers to his or her
person. Emotional damages include trauma, pain, and suffering. Property
damages can occur to any of the victim's property that is affected
by the accident.
When should I file a personal injury claim?
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful
death is two years. This means that you must file a claim within two years
of your accident in order to be eligible for compensation. Failure to
file your claim within that time period can result in denial of your claim
and an inability to obtain compensation from the liable party, so act
as quickly as possible.
Why should I hire a personal injury lawyer?
Accident victims are not required by law to retain counsel, but the benefits
are immeasurable. Individuals who are represented by an attorney recover
far more compensation on average than people who file a claim on their
own. Make sure you have the advantage of an attorney's knowledge and
ability to represent you with the insurance companies, as well as in the
courtroom. Hire a lawyer from Chavez Law Firm today!
