What to Expect From the Personal Injury Claim Process

We recommend meeting with a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer to discuss the details of your case. An attorney can evaluate your case to determine whether you have a viable claim, explain your legal options, and discuss next steps for moving forward.

If you have a viable claim, an attorney can handle the legal process on your behalf so you can focus on recovering from your injuries. Generally, though, you can expect the following process:

  • Building your claim. In order to have a successful claim, you must establish that the other party had a duty of care to you, breached it, and caused your injuries and damages. Establishing liability and damages generally requires a thorough investigation of the accident and gathering evidence to support your claim. Examples of evidence may include medical records, accident reports, witness statements, photographs of the scene and injuries, and surveillance footage.
  • Sending a demand letter. Once you have a strong personal injury claim, your lawyer will send a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company. A demand letter details the accident, how the other party is liable, the extent and impact of your damages, evidence, and the compensation you seek. It initiates settlement negotiations.
  • Negotiating a settlement. The insurance company may accept your demand or deny it, but more than likely, it will send a counteroffer. This stage may involve several rounds of back-and-forth negotiations to reach a settlement that both parties will accept.
  • Filing a lawsuit. If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, you may consider filing a lawsuit to fight for your right to compensation. A lawsuit involves submitting a formal complaint to the court and beginning the litigation process. The litigation process can add many months or even years to your case timeline.

Frequently Asked Questions

The steps you take immediately after an accident can impact the strength of your potential personal injury claim. If you can, we recommend taking a few critical steps to protect your legal rights. These steps include:

  1. Call law enforcement. Check yourself for injuries before moving to help others. If you can, check passengers and the other involved party for injuries. Call 9-1-1 to report the accident and request medical assistance if needed.
  2. Exchange information. Exchange contact information and insurance details with parties involved in the accident. You should also request contact information from any witnesses of the accident.
  3. Avoid admitting fault. When talking to the other driver or law enforcement, avoid saying anything that may shift blame to you. Do not speculate about the crash or apologize.
  4. Document the scene. Take photos and videos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, visible injuries, and any relevant road and weather conditions.
  5. Get medical attention. Even if you feel fine, it is important to get a medical evaluation, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent. A prompt medical evaluation can also provide the evidence needed to link your injuries directly to the accident. The longer you wait to see a doctor, the more difficult it is to establish that link.
  6. Consult a Fort Worth personal injury attorney. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in Fort Worth to discuss your case. An attorney can determine whether you have a viable claim and ensure your legal rights are protected throughout the aftermath of an accident. An attorney can handle the legal process so you can focus on recovery.

Through a personal injury claim, you aim to recoup the financial losses you have incurred due to the accident, address the impact of your injuries on your life, and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions. You may be entitled to various types of compensation after a Forth Worth accident or injury, depending on the circumstances of your case. However, generally, the main types of compensation include:

  • Medical bills. Medical bills can encompass all medical costs related to your injuries, such as emergency-related care, hospital stays, surgeries, doctor's visits, prescription medications, and physical therapy. They also include future medical care needed for your injuries.
  • Lost wages. Lost wages refer to any income you lost due to the inability to work during your recovery period. If your injuries affect your ability to return to work in the same capacity or at all, you can also pursue compensation for loss of future earnings.
  • Property damages. You can seek reimbursement for any damage to your personal property in the accident, such as vehicle repairs or replacement after an auto accident.
  • Pain and suffering. Pain and suffering damages compensate you for the non-financial losses incurred due to the accident. For example, you may experience physical pain, emotional trauma, psychological consequences, and impacts on your overall quality of life.

Most Fort Worth personal injury attorneys, like us, operate on a contingency fee basis. This payment structure means our payment is contingent, or dependent, on winning your case.

You do not have to worry about paying any upfront fees or hourly rates. Our law firm takes care of all of the upfront costs of handling your case. Then, we only get paid if you get paid. Our fee is an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement or judgment awarded in your case.

If we do not win your case, then you do not owe us anything. There is no risk to you in pursuing compensation for your injuries and damages after a Fort Worth accident.
