Attorney Alexander Begum

A Personal Injury Lawyer in Brownsville to Explain the Law & Answer any Question

Personal injury law allows you the chance to recover from harm inflicted upon you through reckless or negligent conduct. This gives you the opportunity to be made whole again, but a lot will depend on the unique characteristics of your accident. The elements typically considered in a personal injury case will revolve on how another party’s negligence caused you harm, the severity of your injuries, and how it affected you. Essentially, this boils down to establishing that another individual or entity owed you a duty of care, that this duty was violated, and you suffered as a result.

This seems straightforward, but identifying the liable parties and presenting compelling evidence is easier said than done. There are critical legal procedures to follow and the law restricts how long a person has to file personal injury claims. This makes it essential to speak with an experienced lawyer about your rights, options, and next steps.

The Law Giant fiercely protects every client in and out of the courtroom, but we also take a lot of pride in delivering clear guidance along the way. We are here to make you feel as comfortable as possible in the choices you make, ensuring that you have all the necessary information. Every Brownsville injury lawyer on our team is committed to you, your case, and your goals.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

What Does the Law Say? / How Do I Prove Neglect?

When people are injured in accidents, they often second-guess themselves, even if another person was obviously negligent. You may wonder if you could have prevented things or if the law is really on your side. This is completely natural, but don’t talk yourself out of fighting back.

While not every situation will require a personal injury claim or lawsuit, by speaking with a qualified lawyer you can assess your situation, identify who is responsible, and what can be done to recover what you lost. To prove negligence and obtain compensation, your attorney will need to show the at-fault party in question failed to behave as a reasonable person would if confronted with a similar situation.

Additionally, Texas allows for “modified comparative negligence.” This states that a person can be partially responsible for an accident and still be compensated as long as their degree of fault is below 50 percent. If it’s determined that you are less than 50 percent responsible, your recovery will be reduced by that percentage. However, if your degree of fault is 50 percent or above, your recovery will be entirely denied. For example, if your damages equaled $100,000 and you are found to be 10 percent at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, your possible recovery will be reduced to $90,000.

How Much Compensation Can I Expect?

Your potential for financial compensation in a personal injury case is heavily dependent on several factors. These include the degree of your injuries, how your injuries have affected your life, and what losses you experienced as a result. The Law Giant and our Brownsville, TX personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in how damages are calculated and can help you determine an accurate value for your injuries. Recoverable losses following a personal injury case include:

Medical Expenses We will review your medical bills and discuss your injuries and treatment with your doctors to determine what you will genuinely need. Some injuries, like, traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures or spinal cord injuries, may require enduring medical care and rehabilitation.
Lost Wages: Being out of work would take a toll on anyone. It is also difficult to assess the full scope this can have because you are not only losing your normal paycheck, you could be permanently limited in the work you can perform or missed out on a promotion.
Pain and Suffering: This is ascertained based on your injury and the impact it had on your life. It can be very hard to quantify how a catastrophic accident changed you and your family’s lives, but The Law Giant, Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers Lawyers utilizes a comprehensive formula to estimate your pain and suffering.

We will consider things like your lifestyle before the accident; the seriousness of your injury; whether your injury results in permanent or life-altering disability; and whether your injury interferes with your ability to enjoy regular life activities.

There is a lot to think about when appraising the cost of an injury-causing accident and how it has impaired your daily life. One thing to consider is that initial settlement offers provided by insurance companies will likely not take everything into account. These offered are designed to make your case go away for the least possible amount. And by agreeing to these offers, you’ll be forfeiting your ability to recover for your future expenses. So, before meeting with an insurance adjuster and making a statement or accepting any type of settlement, you should understand what is really on the line and the true value of your injury. Reach out to the Brownsville, Texas accident lawyers at The Law Giant, Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers Lawyers right away.

Will I Need to Appear in Court?

While the idea of going to court would frighten most, with a formidable ally like The Law Giant it does not have to be. The simple truth is that most personal injury cases in Brownsville do not reach a trial, but that does not mean you should not be prepared. When you have fierce legal representation, who knows how insurance companies respond to claims and will not shy away from a fight, the other side will know you mean business and more likely to work towards a favorable outcome.

At The Law Giant, Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers, we are highly-skilled trial lawyers and impressive negotiators. We prepare every case as if will inevitably go to court. This not only gives you considerable leverage at the negotiation table, but it also lets your legal team build the strongest possible case. If an insurance company disputes liability or is pressuring you to accept a low-ball settlement, we’ll be prepared with witness statements, scientific evidence, and every available legal resource. Our mission will be to secure the best possible result in the shortest time-frame possible, but if you are better served in the courtroom, The Law Giant will be ready.

What Does a Lawyer Cost?

Our lawyers are well aware that most accident victims cannot pay up-front for quality legal representation. You are likely already dealing with staggering medical bills and considerably less income coming in. Regardless of your added expenses, we also don’t believe that it’s fair to ask you to be financially responsible for another’s negligence. That’s why at The Law Giant, Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers, we handle every case on a contingency basis. This means that we will advance the costs related to your case and only receive a percentage of your recovery after we successfully obtain compensation for you. Basically, if we don’t win, you don’t pay.

There are several advantages to handling cases like this. First, it eases the financial worry for our clients, which is very important to us. However, a contingency structure also inspires your lawyer to strive for the maximum amount possible. When you win, we also win. Finally, when insurance companies and at-fault parties are threatened by high-value outcomes vs the cost of a trial, it can also inspire them to reach a settlement faster.

We realize that these decisions are crucial to you and your family’s well-being and financial security. When The Law Giant stands with you, you can count on the fact that everything will be discussed openly and honestly. You will remain informed and never pressured into accepting a result.

Once you decide to hire The Law Giant and pursue financial compensation for your injuries, we will immediately set to work. Our protection begins with an in-depth investigation, compiling your bills and other documents, notifying the alleged parties at fault, and filing an insurance claim. From there, we will demand justice and our personal injury lawyers in Brownsville will do everything possible to make sure you obtain it.

1. Initial Petition

This outlines the fundamental details of your case, like how you came to be injured and what you lost because of it. The petition will identify you as the Plaintiff, and who you allege as legally responsible as the Defendant.

2. Notify the Parties / Serve Notice

Once the initial petition is officially filed, the court will send out an official notice to everyone named. This is an important step in the legal process and confirms that the appropriate parties are alerted to the legal action.

3. The Defendant’ Response

This allows the defendant the chance to reply to the allegations in your petition. If no official response is made, you could potentially win via a default judgment.

4. Discovery Process

This is the investigation and evidence collection stage. The attorneys on both sides will exchange important documents like medical records, witness statements, accident reconstruction analyses, police reports, corporate communications like emails and memos, and anything else related your injury or its alleged cause.

5. Pre-Trial Motions / Settlement Negotiations

Once all the evidence is collected, The Law Giant will move swiftly into the pre-trial phase. This is where procedural issues and matters of law are decided. This may relate to what evidence will be admitted and when alterative outcomes are discussed. Most cases reach a resolution at this point, either through a negotiated settlement, mediation, or arbitration.

6. Trial & Verdict

In the event that you do not receive an adequate settlement offer, your case will probably progress towards a trial. Attorneys for both sides will present their arguments, provide evidence that supports their claim, and have the issues decided by a judge or jury.
