Injuries can have an enormous impact on your life. Pain may slow you down and make even the smallest tasks more difficult. But when you experience a personal injury that wasn’t your fault, that makes things even more challenging.
Not only do you have to focus on healing and recovering, but you also have to handle the financial side of it.
That’s why you need a personal injury clinic that can help you navigate your legal rights while caring for your medical needs.
Throughout our years in business, we’ve developed close relationships with trusted Texas attorneys that can help you win your personal injury lawsuit. We diligently document your care and handle the paperwork your legal representative will need for your case. If you do not have representation, we offer attorney referrals.
How a Personal Injury Clinic Helps and
What You Should Know
Have you experienced any kind of injury, illness, or emotional harm due to the negligence or recklessness of another person or business? If so, you should not be financially responsible for your medical care.
That’s why having a personal injury clinic is vital—we know how to handle your pain and medical needs while helping you through the legal process.
Here are some of the things you’ll need to know first.
What is a Personal Injury?
The following are examples of personal injury claims:
- Slip-and-fall accidents due to wet floors, misplaced obstacles, icy surfaces, etc.
- Auto accidents when the other party is at fault
- Work injuries, especially if your company does not carry Worker’s Comp
- Attacks from uncontrolled pets
- Injury or illness caused by defective products or contaminated foods
- Medical malpractice and nursing home negligence
If someone else’s negligence causes your injury or illness, it may legally qualify as a personal injury.
The Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations in Texas is two years from when the injury occurred for most personal injury claims.
However, we do not recommend waiting to receive medical care or filing a claim. The sooner you receive treatment and seek counsel, the quicker you can get back on your feet.
Filing a claim as soon as possible also helps your legal team gather the most accurate information and evidence for your case.
Do I Need an Attorney?
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident and carry Personal Injury Protection, you may be fully compensated through your insurance without needing an attorney.
However, in all other instances, insurance companies are not a reliable source to receive the full compensation you deserve.
A specialized personal injury clinic and an attorney give you the best opportunity to reach a settlement that allows you to return to normal following an injury or illness.
During your recovery, your attorney can provide a Letter of Protection (LOP) that prevents you from paying any out-of-pocket costs for your treatment.
We will continue to provide all the care needed for your complete recovery at no cost to you.
