Your attorney will step into your shoes and handle the entire process

When you have been injured and are trying to recover, the last thing you want to do is learn the law, local precedents and procedures, and then know how to apply them to the unique facts and circumstances of your case. The process begins with gathering evidence of your claim and drafting a properly formatted claim that includes the correct evidence of your injury. The claim is then submitted to the insurance company, where it can be approved or denied. If the claim is approved for a lesser amount, your attorney will negotiate on your behalf. If the claim is wrongfully denied, your attorney will file suit on your behalf to recover the amount you are entitled to.

With a personal injury lawyer, you can sit back and focus on recovering from your injuries while your attorney handles the entire process for you, from gathering evidence to collecting your full compensation.


Motor vehicle collisions are common causes of personal injuries

If you are injured in an accident that someone or something else was at fault, you may be entitled to compensation. One of the most common causes of at-fault accidents in which injured parties can receive compensation is collisions with motor vehicles. This is because motorists are required to have insurance, and when someone causes an accident, their insurance company will usually pay for any related damages. The same is true for retail injuries, such as a slip or fall, as we will explain below.

Your Austin personal injury attorney at RHW Law has worked with the major insurance companies and their attorneys in your area and knows how to negotiate a fair outcome on your behalf. For example, some injuries become more severe over time and may require ongoing medical treatment and could even affect your ability to work.

Your attorney accurately measures your total damages

You can only be compensated for damages that you claim and prove with proper evidence. If you were involved in a car accident and hit your head, you may have a sore on your forehead and a headache immediately after the accident. Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, which occur when your head experiences a bump, blow or penetrating wound. The emergency room treats the cut and bills you, then the insurance company offers you a settlement to cover the emergency room costs. You may not know that the accident also damaged your brain tissue, and the associated symptoms will worsen over time, requiring constant medical attention and preventing you from earning as much as you once did.

If you accept a settlement without first fully calculating your damages, you will have to pay the bills yourself in the future, as a settlement removes your ability to make further claims. Your personal injury attorney will gather the necessary evidence and schedule the necessary follow-up appointments to accurately and completely determine the damages associated with your injury.


If you were injured in a slip and fall, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries

Slip and fall injuries are particularly common in retail settings. If you slipped and fell in a retail shop, you may be entitled to compensation because retailers are responsible for making sure their premises are safe for customers. If a condition exists that makes the premises more dangerous, or if a condition is not proactively warned about and you are injured, you are entitled to damages. Your attorney will gather the specific facts and circumstances of your injury and any related records of the incident to support your case.

Determining when you are entitled to compensation can be difficult without a thorough knowledge of the law and precedents. Your local Austin personal injury attorney will apply the results of recent, similar cases to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
