What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is a general term used to describe a broad range of injuries, whether inflicted intentionally or accidentally, that cause physical and mental pain, suffering, and expense - and the Attorneys who represent the injured to recover compensation for those injuries. A Personal Injury case can refer to car, truck, and motorcycle accidents - defective products - medical malpractice - wrongful death or premises liability.
What is Wrongful Death?
A Wrongful Death claim is filed to recover compensation for the loss of a family member’s life due to the negligent or intentional act of someone else. A Wrongful Death claim may be filed as a result of a car accident, truck accident, workplace accident, or homicide. We understand that the unexpected death of a family member is always devastating; however, when a death is caused by the intentional or negligent behavior of another, the suffering may be compounded by anger. Our Clients are not a number or a paycheck, we understand the emotional impact that a wrongful death claim will cause a family, our team will work diligently recover compensation for your loss and ensure your family is treated with compassion and care.
What is a Premises Liability Claim:
A Premises Liability claim is filed to recover compensation for the injuries sustained by a guest or invitee as a result of a property owners’ negligence. Premises liability claims can arise out of negligent security on a property, slip-and-falls, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and landlord/ hotel liability.
Should I Hire a Lawyer?
Yes! Inevitably, some people will attempt to settle or pursue a Personal Injury case themselves; however, this rarely (if ever) will result in an outcome as beneficial as one an experienced attorney could obtain. Personal Injury law is complicated and highly technical. As with any area of the law, of course you can try it yourself, but much like surgery - just because you could try it at home, it doesn't mean you should, and it will always be more painful and leave a few more scars. At Teague Law we will fight diligently to protect your rights and compensate you for your injuries.
What Will it Cost to Hire a Lawyer?
Teague Law takes personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing up front and you only pay if and when we obtain a settlement or judgement. If and when a settlement is reached or a court awards compensation, Teague Law receives a percentage of that amount. The percentage paid to Teague Law depends on when the case is resolved. For example, we would receive a higher percentage of the award for a case that went all the way to a jury trial than for a case that settled before going to trial.
How Much is my Case Worth?
It depends. Everyone hates that answer, but it true. No two accidents or injuries are the same. However, the court award or settlement is typically based off of something called “damages.” Damages are the number of medical bills already incurred, expected future medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering experienced as a result of the accident - accordingly, someone with $100,000 in medical bills can expect to recover much more than someone with only $10,000 in medical bills - however, no two cases or injuries are the same, that is why it is imperative that you speak with an experienced Attorney to determine the value of your case. Call Teague Law today to speak with an experienced Attorney, we will fight for you and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
When Do I Need to Act? (What is a Statute of Limitations)
Now! Every State sets something called “Statutes of Limitations.” Statutes of Limitations are deadlines that must be met in order to prevent the loss of your right to pursue a claim against the negligent party for your injury. The deadline is different for various types of claims, you should contact Teague Law today to ensure that you do not lose your ability to recover your expense and seek compensation for your injures.
