Have You Or A Loved One Been Injured?
Anyone injured in an accident quickly becomes aware of the stress and emotional trauma that can affect them. Most people have no idea how to handle the matter and rely on an insurance adjuster from the negligent party’s insurance company to provide them with all the information on what they should do to handle their losses. What is not obvious to most is that the insurance company does not represent you nor do they have your best interests in mind when attempting to settle a claim with you.
If you or a loved one has been injured, you need an experienced San Antonio personal injury attorney to be working on your behalf, taking into consideration all possible claims you may have when it comes to settling your claim.
Consequences Of A Personal Injury Claim
Suffering an injury in an accident can result in serious, if not catastrophic, injuries. These can lead to costly medical expenses and painful treatment in order to fully recover. There is also the likelihood of property damage, such as a vehicle or personal property that has been damaged in a motor vehicle accident. In addition, many who are seriously injured are unable to work while they recover and lose wages as a result of the accident.
All of these things, in addition to the emotional trauma suffered due to the accident, must be compensated for when negotiating your claim with the negligent party or their insurance company.
At Malaise Law Firm, our experienced personal injury lawyers have been assisting clients in the San Antonio area for over 17 years. Our legal staff works closely with our clients, providing them personal attention throughout the handling of their claim. Working with an attorney who cares about the outcome of your case is important.
Key Areas of Practice
Our firm can assist in virtually every type of personal injury claim, including those involving auto accidents caused by drunk driving, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, bike accidents and pedestrian accidents. We are even able to help clients who were in a single-vehicle accident – such as a rollover.
Handling car accident claims is an important part of our firm’s practice. We are skilled in helping those who have been injured by drunk, distracted and otherwise negligent drivers. Considering that approximately one out of three fatal auto accidents involve drivers who have blood alcohol concentrations that are above the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle, drunk driving accidents are a key focus of our law firm. Accordingly, drunk drivers place everyone else on the road at risk of being involved in a serious car accident.
At our San Antonio law office, we represent clients throughout the city and the surrounding communities who have been injured or who have lost loved ones due to drunk driving accidents.
Millions of auto accidents occur every year nationwide. These leave millions injured and lead to tens of thousands of fatalities, primarily because of some form of negligence on the part of one or more of the drivers involved. Defective auto parts, heavy weather and other factors may also contribute to these collisions, though these are less common causes.
Severe burns, amputation, paralysis, brain damage and spinal cord injury are all examples of what may be considered “catastrophic” injuries. They place the victim’s life at risk and require extensive, expensive medical treatment.
A defective product is a consumer product, such as a toy, medical device or home appliance, which has a design or manufacturing defect. This type of defect may cause the product to malfunction or may make it dangerous to use. Lack of a proper warning label or improper instructions may also make it dangerous for a consumer to use a product.
If you were at a restaurant, retail store or other property owned by another person or company and were injured because you slipped or tripped and fell, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against the property owner. You may be able to recover money for medical care and other losses or expenses you have experienced.
