How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

One of the most common questions we get asked is, “How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?” At FVF Law, we understand the financial burden you may be under after a harmful accident in San Marcos. We put our clients’ minds at ease by operating on a contingency fee basis for all personal injury claims.

This payment arrangement means that we never bill our clients directly. We only charge attorney’s fees if we win the case, and then we take our fee out of the settlement or judgment award. We deduct our fee as a percentage of the compensation obtained. That way, our clients never have to pay us out of pocket, win or lose.

Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

A personal injury claim is a type of legal action that allows an injured accident victim to seek compensation to become whole again. It is a claim to financial compensation, also known as damages, from the person or party at fault for causing the harm being claimed (the defendant). During a personal injury claim, the victim or plaintiff has the burden of proving fault.

Most cases are based on the legal theory of negligence, which has four parts:

  1. Duty of care
  2. Breach of duty
  3. Causation
  4. Damages

Proving negligence requires evidence that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty to act with reasonable care but committed an act or omission that breached or violated this duty. This breach of duty must be the actual or proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injuries or harm. Finally, the plaintiff must have suffered damages, or compensable losses, as a result of the incident.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on a Personal Injury Claim in San Marcos?

In San Marcos, a state law known as the statute of limitations places a deadline on an accident victim’s right to file a personal injury claim. Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.003 states:

TWO-YEAR LIMITATIONS PERIOD. (a) Except as provided by Sections 16.010, 16.0031, and 16.0045, a person must bring suit for trespass for injury to the estate or to the property of another, conversion of personal property, taking or detaining the personal property of another, personal injury, forcible entry and detainer, and forcible detainer not later than two years after the day the cause of action accrues.

Under this law, you have no more than two years from the date of your injury – or discovery of your injury – to file your personal injury claim in Texas. However, some circumstances can shorten or extend the filing deadline. It’s essential to contact an attorney about a potential case as soon as possible so you don’t miss your statute of limitations.

Exceptions to the Rule

Texas’s two-year statute of limitations only applies to personal injury lawsuits; insurance claims for accidents in San Marcos should be filed much sooner. In addition, if you need to file a claim against the government for an injury that occurred on public property or was caused by a government employee, city law will determine the time limit. This could be as short as 45 days.
