We couldn’t have been more pleased. The entire staff at DC Law made us feel comfortable in our pursuit of fairness. They were all very knowledgeable, thorough, and pleasant to work with.

Examples of Personal
Injury Claims and Lawsuits

The unfortunate fact is that doing little more than going about our daily routines exposes us to the poor decisions of others. A typical day of going to work, shopping for groceries, or cooking dinner means that we are depending on other drivers, shopkeepers, and the manufacturers of consumer products to provide the protection that we deserve. Failure to offer this protection often results in personal injuries.
Typical examples of events that may lead to personal injury claims and lawsuits in
Austin include:

  • Collisions on the roads involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians
  • Slips and falls or other examples of injuries that occur on another’s property
  • Injuries caused by defective products
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Medical or dental malpractice
  • Dog bites

A dedicated injury attorney in Austin is ready to listen to the stories of victims and explore how another party’s negligence caused a preventable accident.

People Who Endure Injuries Deserve
Full Compensation for their Losses

A core concept under the law states that a negligent party must provide full compensation to victims after an accident. Still, the victims of accidents must demonstrate the extent of their losses and connect them to the event.

Most personal injury cases will revolve around physical injuries and the medical care needed to treat them. This includes past accumulated expenses and the estimated cost of future treatment. However, many personal injury plaintiffs also seek out compensation for lost wages, emotional trauma, and reduced quality of daily life.

Even with these concepts in mind, it is vital to remember that there is a limited time under the law to pursue a lawsuit or insurance settlement. The statute of limitations, listed under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, says that most people have only two years from the date of an injury to demand compensation from a negligent party. However, be aware that certain types of cases may have shorter or longer statutes of limitation. Consulting with a knowledgeable Austin lawyer now helps meet these essential personal injury deadlines.

Taking the Lead in Proving
another Party’s Negligence

When individuals are dealing with physical injuries and emotional traumas, it is understandable that they may not even know where to begin. However, injured people always bear the legal burden of proving another’s fault for an accident.

An Austin personal injury attorney is prepared to take the lead in obtaining the evidence necessary to show another’s blame for an accident. This can include acquiring:

  • A police report
  • Witness statements
  • Accident reconstruction reports
  • Video or photos of the scene
  • Medical reports that connect an injury to an event

Using this information, a tenacious attorney in Austin aims to connect another party’s negligence to a client’s losses. This helps to build persuasive demand packages that convince a defendant and their insurance company to settle the claim. It may also serve as the basis for a civil complaint that demands compensation in court. Our team is prepared to do whatever is necessary to bring people the payments that they deserve.
