Fort Worth Personal Injury Attorney
Seeking the Fair Financial Compensation You Are Owed
If you have been injured in a car accident, as the result of using a defective product, after falling down poorly maintained stairs in a building, or in any other way due to the negligence of another person or party, there are two things you can count on:
- One: The insurance company will try to get you to settle as quickly as possible.
- Two: The attorneys at Cañas & Flores won’t let insurance companies take advantage of you.
Insurance companies want you to settle right away because, if you do, they will likely be able to get away with paying you far less than what you are actually entitled to.
The settlement they offer may sound fair at first, but there are things to consider that you may not have even thought about, such as:
- Future medical bills
- Property damage
- Loss of income
- The possible need for home health care services
These are expenses that can add up quickly. And if you or your family member has been injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you are entitled to be compensated for these costs. Reach out to the Fort Worth personal injury lawyers at Cañas & Flores today to learn more about your right to fair financial recovery.
What to Do If You Are Injured in an Accident
The aftermath of an accident can be a stressful and overwhelming time. Many injured individuals are not sure what to do next or how they can take action to protect their rights.
If you have been injured, make sure to do the following to the best of your ability:
- Identify yourself as an injured person to the police
- Get medical attention
- If possible, get pictures of the accident scene
- Do not speak to the other party’s insurance representative
- Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer, like those at Cañas & Flores
What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases?
All states have a time limit on how long you have to file a claim in court after a wrongful injury or death. In the state of Texas, you have two years from the date of injury or death to file a personal injury or wronful death claim in court. However, there are certain aspects of your case that can effect this time limit.
