About Our Personal Injury Representation
There are a few things you should know about our legal services related to personal injury claims:
- No fees upfront: Waco personal injury attorney James Rainey works on a contingency basis, which means aside from minor filing expenses, you don’t pay unless your case is settled.
- Statute of limitations: You have two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit in the civil court system. However, it’s always best to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after the incident, while your memory is fresh and witnesses can be located.
- You can be partially at fault and still collect: As long as you are not more than 50% at fault, you can collect your damages based on a pro-rated share of compensation.
- Most cases are resolved without a trial: Your lawyer will fully litigate the case in a courtroom if it’s in your best interest, but most cases are resolved before it gets to that point.
- Compensation: Depending upon your case, there are many types of compensation available. Generally, you can be compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In cases of gross negligence, fraud, or malice, punitive damages are also available.
Personal injury claims typically arise in the following areas, but the number of scenarios where damages may be awarded is too numerous to list. If you are injured, you should discuss the details of your case with a lawyer to determine what options pertain to your specific situation.
We handle serious cases involving the following:
- Auto Accidents
- Truck Accidents
