Premises liability cases hold business owners, city governments, and property owners liable when injuries occur on their properties, including injuries that are the result of negligent maintenance or unsafe premises. If a property owner was aware of a hazard on their property and failed to take steps to resolve it, they may be found negligent and be held responsible for your injuries after an accident.

In order to prove liability for negligence in these cases, the following must be established by the plaintiff:

  • There was a dangerous condition present on the property
  • The dangerous condition contributed to or caused an injury
  • The operator of the premises created, knew, or should have been aware of the condition
  • The operator of the premises failed to correct the condition before the injury occurred

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.

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 clients 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.

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 a FREE case consultation 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.
