When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in San Antonio

Texas law allows individuals injured by someone else’s negligence to seek fair compensation for any losses or damages. To have a personal injury case, you must file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party within the Texas statute of limitation.

If you are unsure about the validity of your claim, call our law firm. One of our attorneys can review the facts of your claim in the form of a FREE Case Review. They can then help you determine the next steps you should take.

Remember, our injury attorneys are here to help. When you hire a personal injury attorney in San Antonio to help you after an accident or injury, you greatly increase the likelihood that you will recover full compensation for the damages you have suffered.

Establishing Negligence in Your Lawsuit

If you want to win your case, you must be able to show that your injury was the result of negligence.

Texas law requires people, companies, and entities to act with a certain standard of care. This means when a person or party fails to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would excise under the same circumstances, they are considered negligent. If that negligence causes injury, death, or property damage, then the victim can file a lawsuit.

It is important to remember that negligence can consist of action as well as an omission to act. If a person failed to take reasonable actions that would have prevented your accident or injury, you can sue them for your damages.

How to Win Your San Antonio Personal Injury Case

The injury attorneys at Thomas J. Henry Law will help you demonstrate how the defendant caused your accident and injury and why they should be held liable for the resulting damages. This means:

  1. Establishing that the defendant owed you a duty of care.
  2. Showing that the defendant negligently breached that duty of care.
  3. Explaining how your injuries resulted from the defendant’s actions.

These are the foundations for winning a personal injury case. To meet the above criteria, you will need evidence, detailed records, and witnesses’ statements if available. Thomas J. Henry Law will make sure your case is built in a way that puts you in the best possible position to win your lawsuit.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve

Our law firm is committed to recovering full compensation for our clients. We will explore every avenue to make sure you get compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Expenses related to physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish

  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering

Thomas J. Henry Law can also help you secure punitive damages in cases where the defendant acted with gross negligence.

An Experienced Injury Attorney with You Every Step of the Way

If you choose to hire Thomas J. Henry Law to represent your claim, you will have a dedicated attorney in San Antonio guiding you through every step of the claim process. Here are the steps to expect as you continue through the personal injury claims process.

  • Initial Consultation: A licensed personal injury attorney who will review your claim and explain your rights. Initial consultations with Thomas J. Henry Law are always FREE and are meant to help you understand the claims process and the legal options available to you.
  • Initial Petition or Complaint: Your attorney will file a petition with the appropriate court. This petition will include information on the accident or injury you suffered, how that accident or injury occurred, and the damages you have suffered as a result of your accident or injury.
  • Serve Notice to the Appropriate Parties: Thomas J Henry Law will “serve” the defendant. This involves delivering a copy of the complaint to the appropriate parties in a way that can be verified, ensuring the defendant or defendants cannot later claim they were unaware of the lawsuit.
  • Defendant Response: The defendant will also have the opportunity to respond to your initial petition in the form of a Defendant’s Response. Failure to provide a response may result in a default judgment, winning your case then and there.
  • Discovery: Your San Antonio personal injury attorney will exchange medical records, police reports, communications with insurers, and witness statements. They may also issue a request for admission from the defendant to resolve your case and conduct depositions as they build your claim.
  • Pre-Trial and Settlement Negotiations: This is the phase where settlement negotiations really pick up. It is also the phase in which most cases are resolved, either through a settlement agreement, arbitration, or mediation.

This is where you really need an attorney with courtroom experience and confidence in presenting your case. The attorneys at Thomas J.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer any questions you have about your injury case.

While every accident and injury is unique, it is typically best to consult with an attorney prior to making any decisions that could impact your claim. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand what options available to you as well as what steps you should take to secure fair financial compensation. This is the reason Thomas J. Henry Law provides FREE case consultations to all accident victims.

It is important to remember that the primary job of an insurance adjuster is to limit liability and save their company money. When an insurance adjuster calls you with questions concerning your accident, they are in fact looking for information that limits the liability of their client and information that can be used to downplay the extent of your injuries.

Adjusters may also ask for a recorded statement concerning your accident and injuries under the guise that they are simply gathering the information necessary to move your claim forward. The truth is that this recorded statement can actually be used to erode your case and path to financial recovery.

By speaking with an attorney before the insurers, you are protecting your rights and your best interests. If you choose to hire your attorney following your consultation, your attorney will begin working on your case that same day.

A successful personal injury attorney will utilize their legal expertise, resources, and knowledgeable support staff to develop your case in a way that accurately demonstrates liability as well as any economic and non-economic damages you have incurred. The ultimate goal is to take care of the client’s claim so that the client can focus on their health and physical recovery.

Thomas J. Henry Law has the legal and financial resources necessary to properly build and handle your case in the most effective and efficient way possible. Your attorney will make sure you are treated with respect, are kept informed with the most up-to-date information on your case, and that you are comfortable throughout the entire legal process as we work to secure the compensation you deserve. We will also work with medical providers to ensure you receive proper medical treatment for all of your injuries.

Experienced attorneys also have access to expert witnesses with specialized knowledge on a subject related to the case. Thomas J. Henry has spent years finding the best expert witnesses across the United States. Our firm retains the most qualified experts for each individual case, from accident reconstruction experts to medical professionals. Every expert undergoes a rigorous and in-depth examination process before ever being involved in a client’s case.

The risks of not contacting a San Antonio injury attorney after an accident cannot be overstated. Simply put, you are jeopardizing your entire claim to recovery as well as future financial stability. Speaking to an insurer or insurance adjuster without consulting with an attorney can often result in:

  • Unintentional inconsistencies – Crashes and accidents are hectic and disorienting. As time moves on, you will likely remember less and less about the events leading up to and following your accident. When an insurance company goes back to compare all the statements you made over a period of weeks or months, they will claim that any inconsistencies were attempts by you to mislead the company and label them as lies before a judge or a jury.
  • Exposure to trick questions – Representatives often ask trick questions or word their inquiries in a way meant to trick or trap you. You may even be pressured into agreeing to facts that are not completely accurate just to get the representative off your back. Even an aggravated response of “I don’t know, maybe” or “I guess” can come back to haunt you later.
  • Exposure to leading statements – Even a statement that seems innocent on its surface can damage your claim depending on your response. For example, by giving a positive response to statements like “I hope your back is starting to feel a bit better” or “Wow, it’s a miracle you weren’t more seriously injured,” you could be tricked into understating the severity of your injuries.
  • Failure to report undiagnosed injuries – Most doctors agree that the full extent of injuries suffered in an accident may not be evident until several days after the accident has occurred. If a claims adjuster contacts you within 24 hours of a crash and asks about your injuries, chances are you will not be able to provide a complete list of injuries. This will not stop the insurance company from questioning and attempting to dismiss any injuries that became symptomatic after that initial recorded statement was made.
  • Provide material for cross-examination – By the time deposition or trial occurs, chances are the defense counsel will have reviewed your recorded statements dozens of times. They will craft questions for cross-examination with the understanding that you likely don’t remember everything you said or agreed to in that recorded statement. And when you misremember or contradict yourself in a moment of confusion, they will try to claim your misstatement proves your testimony is not credible.

We do accept walk-ins at our San Antonio offices. For your convenience, however, you may wish to make an appointment by calling our offices or completing an online contact form.

Yes. Our San Antonio injury attorneys are on-call, 24/7. If an in-person meeting is necessary and you are unable to travel to our offices, we will send an attorney directly to you.
