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 victims of 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 engaged in commercial litigation.

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.
