You may be entitled to additional awards. Our team will work with you to understand the accident’s impact on your life and livelihood. If the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to offer an ample settlement, we’ll begin preparations to take your case to court.

We’ll Negotiate With the At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company

The biggest roadblock between you and your compensation is the guilty party’s insurance company. That’s because insurance companies will use every trick and loophole to reduce their liability and ensure you receive the smallest amount of compensation possible.

While these practices are completely immoral and actually go against the true purpose of insurance, this is the reality that our San Antonio attorneys deal with everyday. Our lawyers are expert negotiators and will work tirelessly to reach a figure that is sufficient to cover your monetary and non-monetary losses.

Texas Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

According to The Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code section 16.003. you have two years after an accident to file a personal injury lawsuit in Texas. Letting the clock run out on a personal injury claim means you may not be able to receive the compensation you need to cover your losses.

If the deadline for your case has passed, you should still contact an attorney. There’s always a chance that your case qualifies for an extended deadline. If that’s the case, our lawyers will make sure your claim is filed before its respective due date.

18-Wheeler Accidents

When 18-wheelers are involved in accidents, the results can be devastating. Due to the size of such vehicles (which can sometimes weigh 80,000 pounds when fully loaded), people traveling in cars and other smaller vehicles are often seriously injured or worse in truck accidents. In certain cases, fatal truck accidents happen, wreaking havoc on families.

Motorcycle Accidents

When a motorcyclist is involved in a collision they don’t have the benefit of being surrounded by a steel frame, airbags, or other automobile safety features. Even worse, insurance companies often stereotype bikers as being reckless simply for being bikers. No matter what the reason, a motorcyclist with years of experience, obeying traffic laws, driving defensively, and always staying on guard can still be involved in a serious motorcycle accident.

Company Vehicle Accidents

Texas car accidents can result in personal injuries and damages. If you are involved in an accident that was caused by the driver of a company vehicle, you may be able to seek monetary recovery from both the negligent driver, as well as the driver’s employer (i.e. the company who employed the driver).

(DWI) Drunk Driving Accidents

If you or a deceased relative were involved in a drunk driving accident, Texas law allows you to initiate a claim against the driver, and any other party, that caused your injuries. You must show that the defendant in your case is liable for your injuries to recover damages.

In many motor vehicle accidents, negligence is the legal theory of liability under which drivers are held accountable for their actions. Negligence is a person’s failure to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances.

DWI accident cases are very difficult due to the blood science. Mr. Bass has valuable experience dealing with DWI cases on both sides of the law: Civil and Criminal. Not many lawyers can say the same.

Wrongful Death

When a person loses their life due to the gross negligence or fault of another, that person has been a victim of wrongful death. Wrongful death is one of the most heartbreaking incidents that can occur for surviving loved ones. This tragic loss is incredibly painful for the family of the deceased. Our Law Firm understands how difficult this time can be. We strive to help you get back on your feet and gain some closure by pursuing justice for your loved one.

Workplace Injury

Workplace injuries are an everyday occurrence in the United States, and Texas is no exception. Our state is growing, both in population and commercial activity. That combination is a perfect breeding ground for employment, and with more employment there is a greater incidence of work-related injuries requiring a Texas work injury attorney.

You work hard. You follow the rules. You take pride in your job. That’s why a work-related injury can often be so shocking, so unexpected. Suddenly, you might have a broken arm or leg. Or perhaps a concussion or another type of traumatic brain injury. Or maybe your work-related injury developed slowly over a long period of time.

Knowing what to do when faced with such a crisis can be confusing. Even knowing what your options are or what the process is for obtaining financial compensation might not be clear.

Slip & Fall Accidents (Premises Liability)

The term “slip and fall” applies to a broad range of cause for injuries a person may suffer when someone slips, trips or falls when coming into contact with an unreasonably dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Some more common causes of slip and fall accidents are the result of water, ice or snow, foreign substances on commercial establishment floors as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a non-obvious dangers, like a gap or hard to see hole in the ground.

In many cases, if you are injured in a slip and fall accident as a result of a dangerous condition while you are in a business establishment or on another’s property, you may have a claim for that injury under Texas law. You should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney right away.

Medical Malpractice

Texas medical malpractice refers to professional medical negligence committed by doctors, surgeons, specialists, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers that results in serious injury to the patient. Medical malpractice encompasses many different types of negligence, including medical errors, missed or wrong diagnoses, surgical mistakes, or anything else that causes a patient to become more injured or sick instead of healthier.

After you or someone you love is injured due to negligence or malpractice, it is easy–and perfectly natural–to become overwhelmed.
