Maximize Your Compensation After A Personal Injury
When someone else’s reckless or negligent actions cause you or a loved one to suffer serious injuries, do not rely solely on insurance companies to provide the compensation you deserve. Personal injuries can leave accident victims with a long list of consequences that they often don’t consider during compensation negotiations, resulting in them leaving money on the table.
At Badders Law Firm, P.C., we are a team of attorneys with more than five combined decades of experience in representing the needs of those who have suffered personal injuries. We know the hardships that come with maintaining your health and pursuing your fair compensation, and we are committed to helping you secure the best outcome possible in your claim.
Representation In Any Situation
With the decades of experience our team has, we know that every client comes to us with a unique set of circumstances in their claim. We create custom-tailored strategies for your individual needs in incidents like:
- Bicycle accidents
- Car crashes
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Other motor vehicle collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
In some cases, the party responsible for your injuries may have a large legal team to defend them. Our personal injury lawyers are not afraid to take on these types of challenges to provide results for you. Whether your claim goes to negotiation or litigation, we are ready to fight for you.
We Seek Physical And Financial Recovery For Lifelong Injuries
A catastrophic injury will change your life and perhaps the lives of your family members as well. You will need skilled medical and legal help to address the situation.
Catastrophic and fatal injuries can be caused by a wide range of accidents, such as those involving motor vehicles, falls and other premises liability issues, work, construction and more.
We have experience with many types of catastrophic injury and serious injury cases, including those that involve:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries causing paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Fractured or crushed bones
- Severe burns
- Loss of sight or hearing
In addition, we can assist families with wrongful death cases. In either situation, our team will work relentlessly to value your claim and fight for the full and fair compensation you and your family need to pay the bills and move forward toward a better quality of life.
What Should You Do After A Catastrophic Injury Occurs?
Seeking medical care is, of course, the first thing to do. It is also essential to continue treatment because it is part of what proves that you have a serious injury that needs ongoing care.
From a legal standpoint, contacting a Houston serious injuries lawyer as soon as possible is also recommended. The earlier we get involved, the better our chances will be of recovering evidence that will hold the negligent party accountable for your losses, including medical bills, lost income and benefits, pain and suffering, and funeral and burial expenses, when applicable.
A Compassionate Legal Team After A Tragic Loss
When someone else’s recklessness or negligence costs the life of a loved one, it can be the single most painful experience that someone could ever experience. After such a loss, doing anything to take care of yourself or your family can seem impossible. Thankfully, you do not have to go through this alone.
You can never put a price on the life of a loved one, but you still deserve compensation for your loss. The sudden absence of the family’s provider leaves your family’s future in a vulnerable position. Our goal in your legal representation for wrongful death is to maximize the compensation you receive to cover costs like:
- Future lost income or loss of income
- Loss of employment
- Future lost retirement contributions
- Medical expenses and funeral costs
- Lost health insurance
- Pain and suffering of the decedent
- Emotional loss of the decedent’s family
When you choose us to represent you, you are choosing a legal team that treats its clients like family. You can trust us to be at your side through every step of the claims process. If negotiations are not able to secure the compensation you deserve, you can bet that we will be ready to take your claim to litigation for you.
We Answer Your Questions So You Can Move Forward Confidently
If you are recovering from an injury or helping a loved one after an accident, there can be a lot of questions about your medical needs, your life changes and the law. At Badders Law Firm, P.C., we put you first, and that begins with giving you the full picture of your case. Below are some general answers to questions you may have. Our Houston personal injury attorneys are glad to sit down with you in a free consultation to help you with the specifics.
What is considered a personal injury in Texas?
The term “personal injury” can seem like confusing legalese, but the concept itself is simple: If you are hurt in an accident, the person responsible for the accident is responsible for helping you recover. For example, a broken wrist from a car accident is a personal injury. So is a brain injury that stems from falling from a loose balcony.
How long after an injury can you sue in Texas?
In general, your case is bound by a statute of limitations, which means that you must file a lawsuit within two years from the date of your accident. In some cases, like repetitive stress injuries that develop over time, that date may be difficult to pin down. We can help determine the date of your injury and the resulting limit when we talk.
Do I need to hire an attorney?
You do not need an accident attorney to file a claim. However, insurance companies will use multiple attorneys to try to deny liability and get out of paying you. Working with an experienced attorney is often the best way to get a fair settlement for your injuries.
How much does a Houston personal injury lawyer cost?
Our firm takes personal injury cases on a contingency-fee-basis. You pay nothing upfront, and you don’t owe any legal fees until and unless we help you recover money. When we do help you recover, our fees are paid as a predetermined percentage of the total compensation we collect on your behalf.
This is good news for three reasons. First, it means that working with us is essentially risk-free. Second, your legal bills will always be lower than the amount you recover. Third, this contingency-fee model ties our success directly to yours. We only get paid if you do, and our goal is to help you recover the maximum amount available in your case by holding liable parties accountable.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
The best way to learn about your legal options is to speak to an experienced attorney. Our firm makes it easy by offering free initial consultations. You can trust that our Houston injury attorneys will give you an honest assessment of your case, because, as mentioned above, our success is tied to yours.
How much is my injury claim worth?
This is a very common question, but there is no standard answer because every case is different. The economic value of your case will depend on factors such the severity of your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
When you contact us for a free consultation, we can give you a fairly accurate estimate of your expected financial recovery based on our decades of experience.
Should I speak to the insurance company? What should I say if they contact me?
Talking to insurers (either your own or the at-fault party’s insurer) will not benefit your case, it will likely harm it. Insurance companies will do everything they can to reduce their own financial responsibility, so an adjuster will be asking questions with that goal in mind.
You are not obligated to speak to insurers if you have an attorney or are in the process of getting one. When you hire our firm, you can tell them to contact us directly, and we will handle all communications from then on, leaving you free to focus on your recovery.
Will my case go to trial?
Statistically speaking, probably not. The majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court, which saves time, money and stress for all involved. However, some cases do go to trial, usually because the at-fault parties and their insurers are unwilling to make reasonable settlement offers. If that happens, we are more than ready to take your case to trial, where we have a strong track record of success on behalf of our clients.
