When will I get paid for my pain and suffering?

Texas law allows you to be compensated for your pain and suffering. Our experienced attorneys pay close attention to your injuries and pain levels and set forth all the reasons why you should be compensated fairly for your pain and suffering. After you have completed all of your medical treatment and we have gathered the proper documentation, we will forward a demand to the insurance company. Keep in mind that pain and suffering is a non-economic category of damage that is highly subjective and differs from client to client and case to case.

Do I have to pay attorneys’ fees?

You only owe attorneys’ fees if we obtain a settlement or verdict in your favor. Once we obtain a settlement or verdict, attorneys’ fees are calculated as a percentage out of the total settlement or verdict. There are no fees associated with taking on your case; only when we recover payment from the person or insurance at fault.

What is a Personal Injury attorney?

A personal injury attorney is one who has dedicated and focused their law practice on helping people who have been hurt or lost a loved one due to the negligence of others. Personal injury attorneys represent anyone who has suffered an injury or loss and seeks legal satisfaction from the responsible party/parties and their insurer so that the person can be “made legally whole.”

The term “personal injury” refers to the damages allowed by law, which include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering/mental anguish, disfigurement and impairment, recoverable both in the past and those that may be incurred in the future. Your legal status in this country doesn’t matter, our personal injury lawyers are here to help.

I was injured in an auto accident with other passengers - should I get my own attorney?

Absolutely. It is important that you get your own lawyer looking out for your interests. Always consult with a personal injury attorney before speaking to an insurance company representative, if possible. You need an advocate who is on your side, who can explain the process, and who can represent you so that you aren’t taken advantage of by anyone. 


According to a study by The Insurance Research Council (IRC) in its 2014 report titled Attorney Involvement In Auto Injury Claims injured people who hire a lawyer, on average, get a three and a half times larger settlement than those who do not. Insurance companies are hoping you don’t get a lawyer, so they will save money at your expense. Call KRW Lawyers at 210-490-4357 for your free consultation.
