How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
Peace of mind. A simple thought, but one with an enormous benefit. Seeking advice from a personal injury lawyer will offer you the ability to understand your rights under Texas law. That knowledge may give you the peace of mind necessary to continue on your path of recovery.
During an evaluation of your potential for financial recovery, our team will complete several critical steps.
Investigating the Cause of Your Accident
Every accident has a cause. The reason may be an underlying factor that is not immediately evident. During the investigation phase, our lawyers will examine everything that may pertain to the cause of your injury, including:
- The type of accident
- Time and location of the accident
- Weather conditions (if the accident occurred outdoors)
- Condition of the premises
- Safety precautions in place on the premises
- Actions that were taken after your accident
Our personal injury lawyers can help in determining all the factors that may have contributed to the cause of your injury.
Handling Communication with Insurance Companies
The one piece of advice that almost all lawyers offer regarding personal injury cases is that you should not talk to the insurance company. It is helpful to obtain the assistance of a personal injury lawyer before communicating with an insurance carrier.
Negotiating with the Insurer
The main goal of an insurance company may seem to be the denial of any claims or to pay as little as possible. To that end, it will work hard to convince you to sign away your rights for potential compensation that you may be eligible to collect.
We have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies. Our team will negotiate with the insurer to get the compensation you deserve.
Preparing Your Case for Trial
In some cases, filing a lawsuit and allowing a jury to decide your case is the best option. For this reason, we always prepare our cases for court from the start.
Recoverable Damages in an Amarillo Injury Case

If you lost a loved one in an accident, please accept our condolences. Our team can help you fight for financial recovery to ease your grieving process.
Our Team Will Establish the Following for Your Case
When a personal injury lawyer is assisting you, they will organize the facts of your claim to show four main elements:
Duty refers to a need to show that a defendant was responsible for providing something to you. An example of duty would be that a business owner has a duty to provide a safe property.
A business owner’s failure to maintain a safe environment is a breach. Causation applies when the circumstances lead back to the defendant’s action or failure to act. For example:
- A stairway railing was broken for three months before the accident.
- The business owner knew and failed to repair the rail. (Duty and Breach)
- You fell down the stairs when you grabbed the broken handrail. (Causation)
- You broke your arm and suffered a head injury due to the business owner’s failure to repair the railing. (Damages)
To prove the factors outlined above, the gathering of evidence is essential. If you are suffering, a personal injury lawyer can be critical in gathering evidence promptly.
A personal injury lawyer from our firm will do the following during the evidence-gathering stage:
- Track down and speak with witnesses to gather statements
- Obtain or take pictures and video of the accident scene, property damage, and other related photographic or video information
- Obtain medical reports, records of treatment, and medical billing statements
- Obtain property inspection reports from inspection agencies
- Gather employment reports, property damage reports, and other documents relating to the defendant’s business
We will use this evidence to establish liability and the extent of your damages.
