Types of Cases we Handle in Edinburg, Texas

Just a few examples of some of the cases an Edinburg, Texas personal injury lawyer handles include, but are not limited to:

An Edinburg, Texas Personal Injury Lawyer Will Help you Get the Compensation you are Owed

The negligent party’s insurance adjuster may have already contacted you. Adjusters have a reputation for acting sympathetic. They know you have medical expenses and are losing wages. They tell you they want to compensate you for your losses. They make you a settlement offer you are tempted to accept because you need money. 

Beware. The adjuster does not work for you but works for the insurance company. Adjusters’ jobs are to save their boss money—not to fully compensate you for your losses. If you accept the low-ball offer, you will be required to agree never again to ask for compensation even if you later discover you will have future expenses that are not paid for according to your settlement.

Statistics show that victims who have personal injury attorneys receive far more compensation than those who deal directly with the adjuster. There are losses, called damages, to which you are legally entitled that you may not even think of.

An Edinburg, Texas Personal Injury Lawyer Will Help you Collect all of the Damages you are Entitled to

The purpose of compensating you for your injuries is to try to put you in the same physical and emotional position you were in before the negligence. Examples of the types of compensatory damages to which you may be entitled include:

  • Collecting all your current medical expenses plus those you are projected to incur.
  • All types of rehabilitation expenses include vocational rehabilitation if you cannot return to your former career and therapy expenses such as physical, occupational, or speech.
  • Compensating you for wages you lost, plus future wages you are projected to lose due to your injury.
  • Loss of earning capacity if you are permanently disabled due to the negligent act, unable to work at all, or can only work in a job that doesn’t pay as much as your previous earnings.
  • Compensation for out-of-pocket expenses you incur due to the injury and current and projected future out-of-pocket expenses. For example, if you must travel for treatment, you should be compensated for your food, lodging, and other necessary costs.
  • Prescription drugs, both current and future. 
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Possible emotional distress.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

Generally, an Edinburg, Texas, personal injury lawyer will consult with experts who can predict your future medical bills and lost wages. An expert will also be needed to predict your lost earning capacity if you are unable to return to work.
