Do I need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Yes. If you suffer any injury that requires medical intervention ranging from a chiropractor to full-on surgery, you should hire an attorney. The American legal system allows you to recover the money you lose when you’ve suffered injuries. To ensure we never lose our 7th Amendment right, we must hold negligent parties accountable when they’ve wronged us.
What is a Contingency Fee?
A contingency fee means you will not pay us any money to represent you out of your own pocket. We only get paid if we successfully recover money for you; we will take our fees out of your settlement or judgment. You can also speak with your attorney about help with medical bills.

Do I have a personal injury case?
Generally speaking, if you’re searching for a personal injury lawyer, chances are you may have a personal injury case. Personal injury claims are civil law cases that allow you to receive monetary damages for any losses you’ve suffered. If you’ve suffered any losses that are the direct result of a person or product, we may be able to help you recover compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
There may be other damages that our team is able to recover on your behalf.
It is important to note that Texas is a comparative negligence state. In other words, if you are 51% or more responsible for your injury or accident, you cannot recover damages in a claim or lawsuit.
If you’re unsure whether you have a personal injury claim, schedule a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your case with our team.
How is money awarded in a lawsuit?
Insurance companies and corporations factor in the extent of their liability, your injuries, and whether or not you have an attorney to assess the value of your claim. The attorney you hire matters. If you hire an attorney who is proud of the number of settlements they get, the insurance company isn’t going to value your case the way they would if you have a trial attorney.
Our job as your personal injury trial team is to factor in past, present, and future losses to get you the actual value of your claim. We will factor in actual damages, compensatory and punitive damages (should they apply) to discuss during negotiations. If we cannot resolve your claim through negotiations, our lawyers will file a lawsuit for you. The insurance industry’s own research shows that when you hire a personal injury lawyer to represent you, you will, on average, get 3.5 times more money.
The Carlson Law Firm can help you get what you deserve.
Will I have to go to trail if I file a personal injury claim?
The likelihood of you needing to go to court is relatively low. In fact, most personal injury lawsuits settle out of court.
With the right lawyer by your side, a settlement resolves your case quicker. An effective lawyer will be able to negotiate the following:
- Medical expenses
- Car repairs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Quality of life
- Mental health trauma
- Wrongful death
While most cases settle, if we cannot agree on how much the defendants owe you, our firm has the resources to assert your rights before a judge and jury.
What Compensation Can I Get if I'm Injured in an Austin Car Accident?
