No Matter How You Were Injured, Loncar Associates Can Help
There are countless scenarios that could lead to you being injured. To recover compensation for your losses, your Dallas personal injury lawyer will need to establish that another party’s negligent actions resulted in your damages. According to the American Bar Association, this involves proving that the negligent party acted in such a way that would not be expected of a reasonable person in the same situation. At Loncar Associates, we want you to know that no matter how you were injured, we can help you.
We focus on the following practice areas:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI) accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Mass torts
- Catastrophic injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Dog bites
- Oilfield accidents
- Wrongful death
- Brain injuries
Each of these accident types may necessitate unique legal considerations. Some situations may be quickly resolved through an out-of-court settlement. Others may involve a lengthy lawsuit. How long your case will take to resolve will rest on the parties involved, the amount of money at stake, and the severity of your injuries.
At the onset of your working relationship, your legal team can listen to the facts of your situation and determine what course of action suits your case.
Working With a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer Can Offer Many Benefits
Anybody who suffers a serious injury and decides to take legal action has the right to represent themselves. This is called pro se representation, and while it is within your rights to serve as your own legal advocate, you may instead choose to work with a Dallas personal injury lawyer.
Some reasons why you may partner with a lawyer include:
- You are unfamiliar with the legal process of recovering compensation.
- You do not believe that representing yourself would be effective.
- You believe that legal experience and knowledge are of value when it comes time to argue your case for compensation.
- You do not want to expend time, effort, or potential stress representing yourself.
Your lawyer may have access to resources that previously may not have been available to you. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, your lawyer can secure traffic surveillance footage that documents the collision. Additionally, your legal team can keep you updated on various deadlines that could impact your case’s success.
For instance, under Texas Civil Practices & Remedies Code §16.003(a), you generally have two years from the date of your accident to take your case to court. Of course, the details of your situation may influence this timeline and give you additional time to act. A lawyer can review the details of your case and determine what state-mandated deadlines surround your situation.
The Responsibilities of a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer
Your lawyer will undertake many responsibilities to promote your case’s success. As we mentioned earlier, the services your legal team will provide will rest on the details of your situation. A slip and fall case will likely require many different services than what would be required for a mass tort.
From a more specific perspective, your lawyer may:
- Counsel you on what to expect from the legal process
- Answer your questions and concerns as your case progresses
- Negotiate a settlement on your behalf, and keep you abreast of any offers that you receive
- Consult with third-party field experts regarding your accident and injuries
- Collect and organize evidence that pertains to your case
- Argue that you were the victim of negligence
- Protect your rights throughout the duration of the legal process
You can learn more about what your legal team can do for you when you call Loncar Associates. A member of our team will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your case’s success. To begin your free case assessment, call (877) 239-4878.
Recoverable Damages in a Successful Claim
Right now, your financial wellbeing could be riding on your case. As a result of your accident, you may be struggling with paying your bills or continuing your life as it was before you were injured.
Should your case be successful, whether through an insurance settlement or court award, you could receive compensation for:
- The cost of various medical expenses, including medications, follow-up appointments, and emergency transportation services
- The income you have lost due to missed time from work or the inability to continue working in your current field
- Pain and suffering that you have endured because of the accident and your injuries
Your lawyer will fight on your behalf to obtain these types of compensation and any other awards for which you may be entitled.
