A: The sooner you reach out to a personal injury attorney, the better. We strongly recommend contacting an attorney within 24 hours of the accident, if possible. This helps you get fast and well-documented medical care, and allows evidence of your injury to be preserved for a jury.

The longer you wait, the more likely an insurance company will be to claim that your injury occurred later, and thereby seek to deny your claim. The faster you give The Escamilla Law Office a call, the sooner we can help you get answers, quality medical care, and a strong legal voice.

A: Absolutely not! Insurance companies are known to minimize client injuries, seeking to dismiss or downplay as many aspects of your accident as possible. Once you agree to the insurance company’s offer, your pathway to fighting for greater compensation is blocked.

Allowing a practiced law firm to handle the insurance companies for you keeps your options open. It also gives you a strong and compassionate legal team preserving detailed medical evidence, determining what types of compensation your case merits, and speaking for you in court.

Don’t agree to the insurance company’s terms; their main focus is saving themselves money, not justly compensating hurting workers and families. Call The Escamilla Law Office instead, and allow us to review your case and fight on your behalf.

A: If you’ve been injured in an accident, the types of compensation you may qualify for fall into two categories. The first category of damages is economic damages. These can include medical bills, wages lost, and expenses tied to your accident (such as the need to hire an Uber if your car is damaged).

The second type of damages is non-economic damages, and these include compensation for physical and emotional pain, trauma, and mental anguish. These are real damages that injured men, women, and their families endure, and they deserve monetary acknowledgment.

Determining how much you may be entitled to depends upon the circumstances and severity of your accident or injury. For a clearer picture of your legal options, contacting The Escamilla Law Firm for an initial consultation today is your best option.

A: In the State of Texas, permanent disability benefits can win you a maximum of 60% of your previous working wages. The maximum benefits period depends upon your age when the accident occurred.

To qualify for permanent disability benefits, it’s important to have ample medical evidence of a workplace disability. This is why it is crucial to call a caring and diligent law firm immediately following an injury, so that medical care can be provided, injuries can be properly documented, and evidence of the accident can be preserved.

A: The cost of hiring a construction accident lawyer depends upon the complexity of your case, and how long your litigation proceeds for. We understand that many of our clients are working or middle class, and that the price of legal help can feel daunting.

This is why we seek to maximize awards, work closely with you, consider your family’s financial needs, and stay transparent regarding fees and expenses. We can also work with your family on payment options and will fight to make sure that you and your loved ones are awarded every penny that you’re owed.
