The aftermath of a car accident can be a disorienting time. Aside from any injuries that require attention, there is also the stress of communicating with insurance adjusters, dealing with property damage, and questioning what is next in the process of recovering payment for your financial losses. Getting your life back in order can feel like an insurmountable task, but having experienced, dedicated advocates in your corner can make all the difference.
The Austin accident lawyers at FVF understand how overwhelming it can feel to face this alone. That’s why we provide free, no-commitment consultations. Whether you choose to hire us or go in a different direction, we will offer our expertise to help you gain a clearer understanding of your options for pursuing a personal injury case against the party responsible for your accident. Our mission is to educate you about your rights and options so you can make informed decisions, even if you don’t hire us.
If you’ve had your life turned upside down by a traffic accident, you deserve transparency, truth, and detailed information that can help maximize your financial recovery. When you reach out to FVF, our process begins with an informal phone conversation. We will review the details of your case so that we can get an idea of the type and amount of damages you may be entitled to.
If another party was responsible for your accident, you may be eligible to receive financial recovery for medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of quality of life, and other damages, both economic and non-economic. We will discuss all of this during your consultation and advise you on how to preserve evidence, obtain quality medical care, and take other steps to protect your case.
Personal injury cases are time-sensitive. Waiting until things have settled down or delaying a consultation in hopes that your injury will resolve itself can, unfortunately, jeopardize your chances of securing financial recovery. Our FVF lawyers recognize the urgency, but we also believe that the decision to hire representation and move forward with a personal injury claim should not be made on impulse. On the contrary, you should feel a sense of clarity and certainty when it comes to both your legal case and your physical recovery.
Access to an expert lawyer, even for a single phone conversation, can greatly impact the outcome of your case and your financial stability. While that initial consultation may be your only contact with us, it is important that you feel comfortable should you ultimately choose to commit to our firm. Furthermore, if you ultimately choose to hire us, we will handle your case on a contingency fee basis, meaning we will not get paid unless and until your case is resolved successfully. We will never ask you to pay us an hourly fee, retainer, or otherwise unless your case resolves favorably.
While seeking medical treatment for an accident-related injury seems like common sense, the decision to immediately see a doctor or visit the emergency room can be surprisingly complicated. Certain injuries, such as head and soft tissue injuries, can take hours or even days to become apparent.
Understandably, many car accident victims would rather be optimistic than believe they have sustained an injury that could cause both physical suffering and financial hardship. However, waiting to see a doctor can put your health at risk and can also be misconstrued — the insurance adjuster or lawyer for the at-fault party could point to the delay as evidence that your injury was not that serious. We advise that you promptly seek medical treatment for any discomfort or pain in order to document your injuries and strengthen your case.
As soon as any emergency medical needs have been addressed, schedule a consultation with a lawyer as quickly as possible. Insurance adjusters will attempt to contact you and get you on record about what happened. These interviews are rife with risks; anything you say can endanger your case. A lawyer can communicate with the at-fault party and their representatives on your behalf.
You may be unsure about filing a personal injury claim, or even unsure of whether there are grounds to pursue any legal action whatsoever. If that is the case, you stand to benefit greatly from our pressure-free consultations. And if you are ready to move forward, we are ready to use our knowledge, resources, and experience to help secure your financial future. Contact us today to schedule your free, remote consultation.

A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “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.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
