Can I Bring a Personal Injury Claim?
Every personal injury claim involves three specific aspects. Without the following aspects, you will not be able to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit:
The liable party, i.e. the defendant, must have caused the accident, or have contributed to the accident in some way, so as to have caused your injury. The injury can be physical, emotional, or mental. In other words, the liable party was negligent in some form in regards to their legal duty towards the victim. Negligence can take the form of simple carelessness or recklessness or can be more egregious, such as gross negligence in the case of drunken driving accidents. There can be multiple liable parties in personal injury cases that will hold varying degrees of liability based on the specifics of the accident. Ensuring that all liable parties are identified is a key aspect of any personal injury case since each party will then be responsible for awarding a victim a certain amount of compensation based on their portion of liability for the accident. As such, San Antonio personal injury lawyer Michael Grossman and his team at Our Law Firm will conduct thorough investigations of accident sites where necessary in order to ensure that all liable parties are brought to justice so that you can stand to receive full compensation for your sustained injury.
The victim, also known as the plaintiff in a personal injury case, must have suffered some type of financial loss as a result of the injury. The financial loss is known as damages, and the point of a personal injury case is for the injured victim to be compensated for the damages they’ve incurred. Damages can include medical bills, lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, and other types of financial losses that can happen when a person is injured. With the help of San Antonio’s personal injury attorney Michael Grossman, you can be sure that we’ll work to fully calculate the extent of your damages so that your past and possible future financial needs can be taken care of in regards to your injury.
Lastly, the defendant in a personal injury case must be solvent. This simply means that the defendant must have the financial means to be able to award a victim compensation should a personal injury case result in a successful outcome for the victim. For instance, a homeless person would likely be insolvent and uninsured, and therefore unable to award compensation to an injured person. As a result, a personal injury lawsuit would be frivolous from the point of view of the victim. However, since many defense attorneys know that a defendant must be solvent to stand trial, they will attempt various tactics in order to hide their client’s financial assets. When Our Law Firm is hired to work on personal injury cases, we often perform a financial asset check on the defendant rather quickly in order to ascertain their solvency. Even when defense attorneys are hiding their client’s assets, we’re often able to figure out their true financial standing so that you can have a fair opportunity to receive compensation for your injury.

Why Do I Need Legal Help?
Non-attorneys and inexperienced attorneys will likely experience the same conclusion in a personal injury lawsuit: little to no compensation. An attorney in such cases must possess both a robust knowledge of the law as well as the ability to apply the law in a court setting. Furthermore, the defense mounted against personal injury victims can oftentimes be quite stout, especially as the severity of the injury increases. As compensation packages increase, so too will the experience level of those that are defending the compensation at stake. Insurers and defense attorneys alike simply do not want to release such a sizable sum if they can work to get the claim denied or the case dismissed. As such, having an experienced, knowledgeable, and reputable San Antonio personal injury attorney like Michael Grossman on your side can prove to be of an immense benefit in seeking compensation against such a stout defense.
Furthermore, because of Our Law Firm’ twenty years of bringing personal injury lawsuits against every major insurer, our clients are often offered out of court settlements by insurers or defense attorneys that simply do not want to meet our lawyers in court. This is a beneficial outcome since it can result in a fair settlement that also saves you time and money since it does not require a court case. However, there are some instances where a court case may be necessary, or may prove to be more beneficial for you than a settlement, and, as such, our law firm will work to ensure that your case is handled from the outset as if it were destined for a court case. In other words, we’re prepared to go to court, but we’ll work as hard as possible to get a fair settlement for you so a trial isn’t necessary.
How Quickly Must I Act to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Essentially, acting as soon as possible in the aftermath of an accident causing injury is often in your best interests if you desire to seek compensation for your injury. Evidence from the accident scene can be lost with time and witnesses can forget what happened. Furthermore, depending on the severity of your injuries and the liable parties involved, a defense team may have already begun building a case against you in which having your own legal representation on the scene of an accident just as quickly can prove to be foundational towards the merits of your own case. San Antonio personal injury attorney Michael Grossman and his investigative team at Our Law Firm can provide you with that kind of service.
Furthermore, certain statutes of limitations exist in personal injury cases. Statute of limitations means that a specific time period exists in which an injured party can seek legal action against a negligent party. In personal injury accident cases, the statute of limitations is most often two years from the date of injury. However, certain exceptions exist, such as when a child is injured, that serve to extend the statute of limitations so that an injured victim retains the rights to pursue legal action should certain mitigating circumstances prevent them from doing so within the standard statute of limitations. If you fear that the statute of limitations may have run out for your particular case, consider contacting Our Law Firm for free to discuss your accident case as an exception may exist in your particular case that could allow you to pursue legal action against a negligent party.
