Personal Injury FAQ
Have questions? Our San Antonio personal injury attorney has the answers!
Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. is committed to protecting the rights of injured
victims and families. Because we know that many injured victims have never
encountered the civil justice system, we understand that it can be a frightening
and intimidating process. At our firm, we take the time to help our clients
understand their rights and how the process works - and we do so by taking
the time to personally discuss their unique situations.
While we encourage you to discuss your case with one of our attorneys for
answers to your specific questions, we also want to help all local residents
in need by answering a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive.
Q: What is personal injury law?
A: Personal injury is an area of law that provides rights to victims and
families who suffer preventable harm and losses due to another's negligent
or wrongful acts. This means that if you were injured because another
person or company acted negligently, recklessly, or against the law, you
have the right to file a personal injury claim and recover your damages.
Q: What damages am I able to recover?
A: Every case is different, but personal injury claims can allow injured
victims - as well as families of injured or deceased victims - to recover
financial compensation for damages resulting directly from their accident
or injury. Examples of the damages you may be able to recover include:
- Medical bills and future medical expenses
- Lost work wages and future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional injuries
- Loss of enjoyment or quality of life, or companionship
Q: How much is my case worth?
A: This is one of the most common personal injury questions, and it is also
one of the most difficult to answer. Remember that all cases are different
and every victim is unique. Depending on the nature of the case and the
damages you suffered, the value of your case will vary. Our legal team
can help you gain a better picture about the expected value of your claim
after personally reviewing your case. No matter what, our San Antonio
personal injury lawyers always fight for the maximum compensation possible.
Q: What types of cases do you handle?
A: Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. handles a wide range of personal injury cases,
including cases involving serious injury and wrongful death. We represent
auto accidents - including
commercial truck accidents, and cases involving injuries caused by
workplace accidents and
defective products. In addition, our firm represents
whistleblowers who wish to expose fraud or illegal activity and individuals or companies
Q: Do I really need a lawyer?
A: You are not required by law to have legal representation when filing a
personal injury claim, but having an experienced attorney on your side
can make all the difference. Our lawyers have been helping injured victims
and families for decades. We know the claim process, how to fight insurance
companies, and how to secure the best results possible for our clients.
Filing a claim by yourself puts you at risk of receiving less compensation
than you deserve. Trust in our team to help you to the best of our ability.
