Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Our seasoned lawyers represent clients in a wide range of personal injury claims, including:

Dedicated to Your Success

In personal injury law, no two cases are the same. Countless factors come into play regarding the type of accident, nature and extent of the injuries, percentage of liability, and types of losses incurred. With so much to take into consideration, it is important to have a knowledgeable legal advocate on your side who can help you sift through all the legal jargon and develop a strong case for compensation.

At Cofer & Connelly, PLLC, our personal injury lawyers take the time to evaluate all the nuances of your case. We make sure all liable parties are held responsible and every loss you incur is accounted for. This includes making accurate calculations for the compensation you deserve based on medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more. Once we determine how much you are owed, we can negotiate with the insurance company for rightful compensation. If they refuse a fair settlement, we can take your case to court to fight for every dime you deserve.

Texas Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury

If you have been the victim of an injury in Texas due to negligence, you may have a case to acquire financial relief. As with most states, Texas does have a time-period in which you can file a lawsuit. This period is two years from the date the incident took place.

If you miss the deadline, a judge may throw out the case and award no compensation. However, there are exceptions to this rule which may extend the time limit. These exceptions include:

  • If you have been sexually assaulted and need time to heal emotionally, physically, or mentally
  • If you have been exposed to chemicals such as asbestos and need treatment
  • Injuries that result in you becoming disabled

Our Texas personal injury lawyer is ready to take your call today!

Should I Accept a Settlement Offered by the Insurance Company?

It is important to remember that insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. The way they make money is by collecting premiums from their clients and paying out as little as possible. Therefore, you can expect any offer they make is going to be lower than you actually deserve. Even if the figure sounds appealing, you should always consult with a knowledgeable legal team to see if your claim is worth more. Agreeing to a settlement too early may result in a forfeiture of your rights to fair compensation.
