Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases
At the Thornton Law Firm, we understand how stressful and overwhelming
it can be to find yourself injured due to someone else's negligent
actions. Some fail to take legal action out of fear or pressure from insurance
Our goal is to make the recovery process as easy possible by equipping
our clients with the reliable information they need right from the start. Our
Galveston County personal injury attorney has collected some of the most commonly asked questions brought forward
by injury victims. We hope you find this page useful.
What are my rights as an injury victim?
As an injury victim, you have the right to file a compensation-seeking
claim. You and your family should not have to be saddled with the financial
repercussions of someone else's oversight. Filing a claim can hold
the responsible person or party financially accountable for your injuries.
The law is on your side.
Why should I file a claim?
Filing a claim can increase the chances that you will obtain the fair
compensation you are entitled to receive under the law. Taking legal action
can also diminish the possibility that someone else will experience a
similar injury because the liable individual will most likely take more
precautions. Filing a claim may help you obtain the monetary compensation
you need to pay for accident-related costs, such as medical care, income
loss, property damage, as well as pain and suffering.
Why can't I just settle my case with the insurance company on my own?
Settling your case with the insurance company without legal representation
is a high-risk situation. Insurance companies are notorious for giving
injured victims the runaround or low-balling them from a fair compensation.
Insurance adjustors may pressure victims into believing that their offer
is the best they will ever receive. This is usually not the case, especially
when our firm becomes involved. We strive to obtain the highest amount
of compensation possible for our clients. This dedication has earned us
inclusion in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®!
I'm worried about my financial situation. How can I afford to hire
a Galveston County personal injury attorney?
We understand that as an injured victim, your finances are a major concern.
Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be unable to work
for some time. This could place your family under much financial strain.
We wish to make your situation easier, not more complicated. With this
in mind, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This
means you don't pay us legal fees unless we win your case! We also offer
free case evaluations to all our potential clients.
