FVF Law is a values driven law firm.
How does an Austin personal injury law firm continue to prove its commitment to excellence, integrity, trust, and respect? For FVF Law Firm, it’s by never forgetting its roots or its purpose — educating and informing people when they’ve been harmed and don’t know where to turn.
When your life is at its best, personal injury attorneys probably never cross your mind; unfortunately, your best life can become your worst day all too quickly. Catastrophic accidents occur on the road, at the job, and anywhere in between. These are not situations that average people should be asked to handle on their own.
In Austin, more than 90 percent of households have cars, and it comes as no surprise to pedestrians and commuters alike that Austin’s roadways can be dangerous. If you’ve suffered an accident on the road or elsewhere, FVF has your back.
In 2014, Josh and Aaron founded FVF with the mission of educating injured clients, allowing them better understand their options and make informed decisions. Through undertaking that mission one person at a time, it’s our goal to change the public perception of what personal injury lawyers can do, instilling trust back into this area of practice.
To many people in Austin, personal injury attorneys are seen as the legal sharks you call when you want to get even. While it’s true that our job is to get you fair financial compensation when you have been injured, our team is recognized through stellar reviews from past clients on Google, Yelp, and AVVO. We’ve also been honored by Thompson Reuters’s Super Lawyers, where FVF attorneys Josh Fogelman, and Aaron Von Flatern, have been named Rising Stars multiple times. Most recently, team FVF has been awarded the 2020 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics — the only law firm to make it to the winner’s circle.
When you decide to call a personal injury law firm, they should help you:
FVF prioritizes education and support, making our office a place where accident victims can find sympathetic legal advice. We offer a comprehensive case evaluation — at absolutely no cost — allowing you to examine your legal options and find your best path to managing your medical bills and care, interacting with insurers, and protecting your health and financial security.
FVF’s attorneys provide injured clients support in a range of different types of personal injury cases, including the following practice areas:
If you’re like many accident victims, you may not know exactly what steps you need to follow after you are injured. However, your actions after your accident can significantly impact your ability to recover damages. This is your chance to begin documenting evidence of your injuries and other damages — and make sure that you are looking after your health and well-being.
At the Scene of the Accident:
Immediately After the Accident:
Damages are the kinds of harm caused to you, and they determine the amount of financial compensation you receive in a personal injury case. Damages may include:
Sometimes, the people seeking financial recovery are the surviving family members of a person killed in a devastating accident. When this happens, surviving family members have a legal right to seek compensation through a wrongful death suit for the financial strain they are dealing with on top of their grief. These may include:
When you have been injured in a car accident, calling an Austin accident attorney can help you take steps right from the beginning to work toward your maximum fair compensation for your injuries. That includes getting the right medical care and treatment you need, for your own health as well as for the health of your case.
Everyone who has been injured and suspects it’s because of someone else’s negligence, like being hit by an 18-wheeler or being injured on a construction site, should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. When you have been injured, you are going to be busy getting medical treatment and perhaps even trying to figure out how you’re going to keep paying the bills. That’s stressful enough. Accident attorneys can help people who have been injured to:
Even situations that might seem easily resolved because of the other party’s obvious wrongdoing can be extraordinarily complex and overwhelming. Victims of drunk drivers may not necessarily need legal representation, but an experienced injury attorney can still help you:
You can negotiate a settlement yourself — and that is exactly what the insurance industry wants you to do. A study by the Insurance Research Council found that claimants who had an attorney representing them walk away with payouts that are 3.5 times higher than those without legal representation.
Even if you don’t want to speak to a personal injury attorney, you should at least know that the insurance adjusters you will have to speak with have likely been trained to deliberately deny or devalue your claim while making you think they are looking out for your best interests.
Our Austin car accident and injury lawyers have a long history of successful trial verdicts and settlements for accident victims and their families. We’re proud to have been able to help families, employees, and individuals recover the fair compensation that is vital in helping them during some of the most difficult times a person can experience — as well as provide them with our fullest support and empathy as we navigate the process together.
Here are just a few of our notable recoveries:
Personal injury law, when it works best, really is about helping people. At FVF, we know there’s far more at stake in a personal injury case than just your financial compensation. When you’ve been injured, just getting through your day-to-day life can be physically and emotionally difficult. Josh and Aaron knew their values-driven representation of clients could flip the script. In Austin, FVF is known for:
We offer free case evaluations so injured people can examine their options and discuss their rights with no obligation to hire us. Contact us today to arrange your free consultation with FVF’s Austin law offices.
FVF is proud to serve one of the most diverse cities in Texas. We celebrate the cultural diversity of the Austin area by providing value-based, ethical legal guidance to all accident victims, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
As part of our commitment to Austin’s exceptional diversity, we include the following termination clause in all of our contracts: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
We respectfully ask all clients to commit to these values, and we request that those who do not share or cannot commit to these values seek out the advice of another firm. We also welcome your feedback, which you can provide by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
