Our Austin Personal Injury Attorney Will Fight for Your Rights

Debilitating personal injuries happen to people through no fault of their own every single day. Careless drivers run stoplights, speed or otherwise drive dangerously, causing car accidents, motorcycle wrecks and truck accidents. Slip and fall accidents happen when businesses and individuals don’t properly maintain the properties they own. Companies manufacture and sell defective products, causing injuries. Employees fall from heights or are crushed between machinery because of unsafe working conditions.

These are just a few examples of the many ways people can suffer severe personal injuries due to the negligence of another person or entity. When these accidents happen, they often happen quickly. One minute you are going about your business and the next, you are hurt and facing expensive medical bills, lost time at work and other serious damages.

The negative financial impacts of a personal injury can be devastating. If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you have a right to be compensated for all that you have lost and may lose in the future because of your accident. Contact our skilled personal injury lawyer in Austin for a free consultation at (855) 414-1012.

You Don’t Have to Face Your Injury Alone

When you’ve been injured, you should be focused on your recovery — not on worrying about how you will pay the numerous bills caused by your accident and feed your family. Our talented Austin personal injury attorneys can help take the financial worry off your shoulders by advising you about your right to receive compensation for your damages. The types of damages you may be entitled to depend upon the specifics of your injury and may include both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages related to a personal injury are costs that can be easily measured and include:

  • Doctor and other medical bills
  • Medical equipment and device costs
  • Reimbursement for parking at medical appointments and other incidental expenses
  • Lost income from not being able to work.

Non-economic damages for an injury are not so easily measurable and may include such things as:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Stress, anxiety and other emotional trauma
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Overall loss of enjoyment of life

We can explain the damages you may be entitled to in greater detail once we learn about the specifics of your case. It’s important to speak with our personal injury attorney as soon as possible or you may not be able to file a legal claim. Don’t let time run out on you and deny you the compensation you deserve.

In Texas, you generally have two years from the date you were injured to file a personal injury lawsuit through the civil courts. If you don’t file within this statute of limitations, your right to bring a claim against the party that harmed you will most likely be lost. There are a few exceptions to this filing deadline depending upon the specific circumstances of the case. Our Austin personal injury lawyer can advise you. Call us at (512) 732-2727.

Working with Our Austin Personal Injury Lawyer

Insurance companies and other big businesses have teams of attorneys who excel at protecting their interests in personal injury claims’ cases. As an injury victim, you deserve that same kind of dedication from your own attorney. You need a powerful advocate who’s not intimidated by corporate lawyers either in the courtroom or at the negotiating table. Our Austin board-certified trial lawyer will bring all the firm’s resources to bear in fighting for your right to compensation and will stand up for you every step of the way.

Upholding Your Family Interests

Legal problems between family members are some of the most difficult issues that people will ever face. Emotions run high and can be even more amplified when children are involved. If you are experiencing a divorce, child custody or child support dispute or other domestic relations matter, our skillful attorney will protect your rights and work toward getting your life back on a path to normalcy.

When you need a law firm that you can trust to handle your family matter with sensitivity and discretion, call us at (512) 732-2727.

During a divorce, there are many contentious issues that must be addressed, such as how assets and debts will be divided, who will have custody of the children, how much support the non-custodial parent will pay and whether to seek spousal support. If you need help with a difficult family law matter, you can rely on our dedicated attorney to work to uphold your interests.

real-life client story…

Chip represented the family of a teenager who was seriously injured in an automobile accident. Various parties were competing for what they believed to be their share of available insurance policy proceeds. Chip was able to secure a full policy limits settlement and place the bulk of the settlement funds into a trust to pay for the young man’s future college education.

“I ran into the young man about 10 years after I had represented his family — in the airport, of all places. We recognized each other and began talking. He told me that he had recently finished up his master’s degree and was headed to Europe. He was able to take a few months off and do this because his education was funded solely by the settlement we achieved. I love knowing that what could have been a very negative situation turned into something positive.”

Chip is the person you want on your side. He is genuine and he will be a friend during perhaps a tough time. Not only did Chip ensure that everything was settled properly, he was genuinely concerned and gave us guidance to navigate a whole array of details.” – Rodney Powell, Tomball TX

Chip was incredibly helpful after my car accident. I had injuries and medical bills that I needed help with, and Chip walked me through the process to make me feel incredibly comfortable. Once Chip got involved, it took less than a year to get resolved, and I felt great about my settlement.Rolla B.

Scott helped me with the child support modification almost 3 years after my divorce. He is sharp and extremely detailed oriented. He helped me to complete my divorce decree while he was working on the child support case. My case lasted a little over a year with a successful outcome. Scott was kind, patient, considerate and always available. I highly recommend Scott!!! He is an AWESOME lawyer and human being!!Marjan A.
