When you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by the reckless and irresponsible decisions of another, you have the right to hold them accountable for your damages.

Below, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions our clients have had in regards to their upcoming personal injury claims. If you have additional questions, schedule a free consultation with one of our highly trained attorneys to discuss your case.
Not when you choose to work with Crain Brogdon, LLP.. Our firm works with injury victims based on what’s known as an attorney contingency fee. We’ll work your case without receiving any payment unless or until we win your case.
It’s possible, but sometimes going to court is truly in your best interests. In many cases, we will need to negotiate with the insurance company to obtain a fair and reasonable settlement that will meet your needs and compensate for the suffering you’ve experienced.
Usually just the threat of bringing the liable party to court will result in an appropriate settlement offer. Other times, the insurance company refuses to negotiate, at which point we’ll be prepared to bring your case before a judge.
Many different kinds of accidents have grounds for a personal injury case. It’s difficult to say whether your accident will fall under this category without reviewing your case. Generally speaking, if your accident was caused by the negligent actions of another, you could have the opportunity to pursue a civil claim.
Reach out to a personal injury lawyer in Dallas to give us more info about your accident, and we’ll be able to address your concerns during a no-obligation consultation.
If you’re partially liable for your damages, you might still be able to file a personal injury claim. The bar for proportionate responsibility—or modified comparative negligence—in Texas is 51 percent. If you are no more than 50 percent responsible for the cause of the accident, you can still receive compensation.
Keep in mind, however, that your award could be reduced based on the percentage of culpability you carry.
The claims process can be both confusing and overwhelming, but with Crain Brogdon, LLP. on your side, we’ll work tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome for your civil lawsuit.
