A personal injury lawsuit can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. It is highly dependent on the facts of your case, cooperation of the other party, and if or when the insurance company is willing to settle. While most cases settle rather quickly, a few must go to trial. When a personal injury case goes to trial, it can lengthen the process substantially. Some parties opt to take advantage of alternative dispute resolution methods to speed things up. Just Wrecked, PLLC will do whatever it takes to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for your case.
A case’s worth comes down to overall damages. When you have suffered a personal injury, you likely have incurred damages in the form of medical bills, auto repairs, physical therapy costs, lost wages, and more. These damages are what the court looks to in order to calculate your case’s worth. A knowledgeable attorney knows from experience and past cases how much you can expect to receive. While you can find several personal injury calculators online, your best bet is to schedule a free initial consultation with one of the personal injury attorneys at Just Wrecked, PLLC. After learning the facts of your case, the lawyer would be able to give you a good estimate of your case’s value.
The majority of personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay anything up front. When your case settles, your attorney will take a percentage of your recovery to help cover their fees and expenses. Contingency fees vary but should be listed in the initial agreement your attorney presents you. If you do not receive any compensation, then you do not owe the attorney any money. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you retain Just Wrecked, PLLC to represent you.
This depends on a few different factors. Texas has prompt payment statutes that require the offending party’s insurance to pay you within five business days after the insurer receives the demand for payment. The check is sent to your attorney, who deposits it in your client trust account. Depending on the check amount, this can take several days to clear. Once it has cleared, your attorney will contact you to arrange a time for you to pick up your settlement check.
There are healthcare providers that work with patients who have been involved in car accidents. Call Just Wrecked, PLLC so we can help connect you with a healthcare provider who is experienced in treating the injuries that come from involvement in a car accident.
Each individual involved in a car accident will receive an individual settlement based on his or her injuries.
This is a very complex question. It depends on how much the insurance company is offering and what your damages are. If you do not have an attorney, it is likely that the insurance company is attempting to take advantage of you by offering the bare minimum. When an experienced attorney represents you, the insurance companies know that they must give you a fair deal or they risk litigation. It is important that you assert your rights and hire a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
The insurance company would love nothing more than to avoid dealing with an attorney who knows your rights and what is owed to you. Just Wrecked, PLLC offers a free, no-cost consultation. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by calling us immediately following your accident.
If you are represented by an attorney, that attorney will send a Letter of Representation to the insurance adjuster, and this will stop them from contacting you regarding your injuries. If the adjuster persists, tell them to contact your lawyer, and make sure your lawyer knows you are being contacted. If you have not retained a lawyer, be very cautious when speaking to an adjuster, so you don’t inadvertently harm your case. It’s always safer to defer to an experienced personal injury lawyer to speak to the adjuster on your case.

When you have been injured, you may be overwhelmed with all the financial challenges you now face. Being seriously injured is not cheap, and it can have a long-term impact on your earning ability due to the pain, disability, or emotional trauma you have experienced as a result of your accident. The attorneys at Just Wrecked, PLLC have helped countless clients in collecting the damages they deserve. In most personal injury cases, you can expect to receive both general and compensatory damages.

Compensatory Damages
Compensatory damages are financial damages that you may have incurred as a result of the accident. This includes medical bills, lost wages, future loss of income, property damage, etc. These damages can be easily calculated and there is typically proof and documentation to back up claims of compensatory damages.

General Damages
These are non-monetary damages that you have suffered. General damages are hard to calculate because the basis of them is subjective rather than objective. This includes pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and emotional distress.

In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded for behavior that is egregious and malicious. This is a rare exception and should be discussed at length with your attorney before you request punitive damages from a negligent party.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you need to seek treatment for your injuries immediately. Even though you have two years from the time of your personal injury accident to file your case with the courts in Texas, treatment for your injuries should never wait. If you do not file your case within the applicable statute of limitations, the court can bar you from bringing your claim. This is why it is so common to hear personal injury attorneys urging potential clients not to wait to give them a call. Two years may sound like a long time, but it takes time to draft a strong complaint and file it with the court. There are certain circumstances in which the statute of limitations may change or be different, so it is crucial that as soon as you are injured that you talk to an experienced attorney to discuss the best way to file your personal injury lawsuit.
