Potential Causes of Life-Threatening Injuries

Nobody wants to plan for the worst, but life happens. A slip, a fall, or an automobile accident can result in a life-altering injury. Spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and even burn injuries can lead to a decreased quality of lifestyle.
Spinal cord injuries could lead to simple injuries, such as a pinched nerve, that lead to chronic pain that is manageable. Some spinal cord injuries may be more severe and lead to paralysis in any or all four limbs. These types of injuries most often occur as the result of a fall or an automobile accident.
Burn injuries result most often when a person has been involved in a fire or the victim of a crime. Burn injuries can also be mild or severe enough to result in leaving the victim unrecognizable and susceptible to infectious disease. People who work in restaurants are often victims of burns as a result of hot grease making contact with their bodies.
A slip-and-fall accident may result in bruises, broken bones, or traumatic brain injuries. Most people slip on wet surfaces where warning signs have not been properly placed, broken stairwells or stairwells without handrails, and on the ice and snow of winter.
Reyna Injury Lawyers can assist accident victims and their families in recovering money to cover the cost of treating injuries that resulted from the accident, as well as punitive damages. If you’ve been involved in and injured as the result of an accident, call (855) 477-7100 or visit any of Reyna Injury Lawyers’s convenient Texas locations in Dallas, Corpus Christi, Houston, Austin, or San Antonio.

5 questions to ask when hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Reyna Injury Lawyers are available to help you seek legal retribution when you have been negatively impacted by the negligent or intentional actions of another person or entity. With many personal injury lawyers and law firms in the area to choose from, consider asking these important questions when interviewing attorneys.
What Is the Fee Structure?
Some personal injury lawyers require you to pay an up-front fee, and some require you to pay a legal fee regardless of whether the case is won or not. Others work on a contingency basis, and they only charge a fee if they win the case for you. Still, others have a fee structure that combines these methods in different ways. Understanding the fee structure can help you to determine your true legal costs.
What Is Your Experience With This Type of Case?
While personal injury law seems like a legal niche in itself, the reality is that there are numerous types of personal injury cases. This includes medical malpractice, worker’s compensation, property liability cases, car accidents and more. The ideal lawyer to hire will have extensive experience with the type of case that you have.
Do I Have a Strong Case?
You understandably want to use your time wisely, and you may not want to proceed with a case if it is weak and your chances of winning are poor. Ask your personal injury attorney how strong your case is, and pay attention to the supporting reasons for their belief. This will help you to determine if you should proceed.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Even with a strong case, you may also want to know how much the case is worth. If you have a strong case worth a relatively low amount, it may not be worthwhile to proceed. Lawyers should not make promises, but Reyna Injury Lawyers will give you a reasonable idea about how much you may receive if you win your case.
Who Will Be Handling My Case?
Before hiring a specific law firm, it is important to know if the lawyer who you initially consult with will handle your case or if it will be passed on to a legal assistance. Your case is understandably important to you. It makes sense to work with a firm that will prioritize your case.
Reyna Injury Lawyers is committed to helping you with your case, and you can count on the team to represent your interested every step of the way. Contact the law firm today to schedule a consultation.

Terrible Truck Accidents in 2017

Road accidents are not prejudiced in claiming their victims. However, the make, model, and size of the vehicles involved can and do make a difference in the severity of injuries and the ultimate outcome of any automobile accident. What this boils down to is this one simple fact: In road and highway accidents, size matters. Check out the Federal Motor Carrier Statistics website to see just how outnumbered passenger cars are on our highways any given day. This information can be accessed at this site. Our roads and highways must accommodate the transportation of goods as well as people, which involves the imminent presence of large trucks. A collision between a tractor-trailer, also known as “18-wheeler” and a standard vehicle is much like a battle between horse and a small dog. Although there is no way to completely annihilate transportation accidents, there are ways to persuade humans to be more responsible and cautious. This article indicates just how dangerous a truck driver’s job is. If he/she is that endangered inside that big truck, imagine how endangered motorists are in the smaller vehicles that travel alongside! The internet is full of video clips of tragic loss-of-life and injury accidents that were either caused by an 18 wheeler or involved one of these large trucks. Although the vehicles are a necessity in our economy, if a motorist is maimed or loses his/her life in a tractor trailer accident due to negligence either intentional or unintentional, the injured or their survivors should also have a right to a reasonable settlement in compensation for the damages sustained. Reyna Injury Lawyers have been defending the rights of those injured in tragic automobile accidents for decades, and they are especially experienced at defending the rights of those who have been injured in accidents involving large trucks. If you or a loved one have suffered or your loved one has lost their life due to a tragic accident involving an 18 wheeler, contact our offices today.

What is a Contingency Fee?

A contingency fee is a type of attorney and client payment arrangement, commonly utilized in personal injury cases in the United States, according to Cornell Law School. With a contingency fee agreement, a client pays nothing in the way of attorney fees unless a claim or lawsuit is successful.
A contingency fee must be reasonable, according to the American Bar Association. Typically, the fee assessed upon the successful conclusion of a case pursuant to contingency agreement is a percentage of compensation obtained. Oftentimes, the fee is about 33 percent of the compensation awarded. If the judgment in a lawsuit must be appealed to a higher court, a bit more money usually is assessed for an attorney fee, pursuant to a contingency agreement.
In addition to attorney fees, an injured person usually will not be responsible for the costs associated with pursuing a case unless a favorable outcome is obtained by legal counsel. The costs associated with pursuing a claim or lawsuit are deducted from the final settlement of judgment in a personal injury case.
Unlike some other types of fee arrangements utilized by attorneys, a client does not need to pay a retainer when a contingency fee is utilized. In other words, a client need not come up with any money in advance of hiring legal representation in a personal injury case.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the first step in protecting your legal rights is scheduling an initial consultation with Renya injury lawyers. You can schedule a preliminary appointment by contact Renya injury lawyers any time that is convenient for you. In the same way that the firm charges no attorney fee unless the legal team prevails in your case, there is no charge for an initial consultation.
