A personal injury attorney is one who has dedicated and focused their law practice on helping people who have been hurt or lost a loved one due to the negligence of others. Personal injury attorneys represent anyone who has suffered an injury or loss and seeks legal satisfaction from the responsible party/parties and their insurer so that the person can be “made legally whole.”
The term “personal injury” refers to the damages allowed by law, which include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering/mental anguish, disfigurement and impairment, recoverable both in the past and those that may be incurred in the future. Your legal status in this country doesn’t matter, our personal injury lawyers are here to help.
You only owe attorneys’ fees if we obtain a settlement or verdict in your favor. Once we obtain a settlement or verdict, attorneys’ fees are calculated as a percentage out of the total settlement or verdict. There are no fees associated with taking on your case; only when we recover payment from the person or insurance at fault.
Depending on the event and type of injury, the different types of damages include:
The easiest damages to calculate the value of will be your economic damages. This category includes any financial losses you’ve suffered because of your accident—both current and future. Include your medical expenses, lost wages, any property damage, and any other economic costs tied to your injuries. These damages are usually determined by adding the costs together and estimating future expenses.
Noneconomic damages, on the other hand, are paid for intangible losses. These losses included mental anguish, as well as physical pain and suffering. If the injury has resulted in severe impairment, family members may even recover damages for loss of companionship.
A motor vehicle accident is an incident caused by or taking place due to the use of a motor vehicle. It involves damage to a vehicle, usually caused by an external event, such as a collision with another that makes it impossible to continue to drive, or even illegal to continue to drive.
Some of the most common injuries that victims suffer in truck accidents include: traumatic brain injury, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation, broken bones, internal organ damage, internal bleeding, soft-tissue injuries, burns, and lacerations.
The involvement of a semi-truck in any motor vehicle accident, whether it is a tractor-trailer or some other kind of truck, raises the stakes of any injury claim. People involved in these types of crashes need to understand that 18-wheeler truck accident claims are immediately complicated by a number of facto
All states have a statute of limitations on personal injury claims, and Texas is no exception. This is the time limit you have to file your lawsuit. In the Lone Star State, the statute of limitations on most personal injury claims is two years. If you wait to file your lawsuit until after this time, the courts will likely throw out the case and you will be barred from receiving compensation.
Before you can file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, you must have reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI). This is the only way to determine how much in damages you should claim. MMI simply means that you have reached the fullest extent of your recovery. Your injuries are not going to get any better, nor are they going to get worse.
Once you have reached MMI, you can determine how much your injuries are going to cost you. Reaching MMI typically means that you are no longer receiving treatment.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, more than 35,000 commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes occurred in the state in 2017 alone, including 512 fatal crashes. When these crashes occur, victims and their families need an experienced truck accident lawyer with the legal knowledge and expertise to hold all those involved accountable. Those parties could include: Truck Driver, Trucking Companies, Shipping Brokers, Warehouse Owners, Mechanics, Truck Parts Manufactures

Commercial vehicle accidents can cause life-threatening or fatal injuries. If you were injured in a commercial vehicle accident or lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of a company vehicle, you might be entitled to compensation. While no amount of money can make up for the anguish you’re facing from this accident, financial compensation can help you pay for current and future expenses stemming from the crash.
A personal injury claim can help you pursue compensation for:
Causes are typically defined as what contributed to the crash. A 1985 study by K. Rumar, using British and American crash reports as data, suggested 57% of crashes were due solely to driver factors, 27% to combined roadway and driver factors, 6% to combined vehicle and driver factors, 3% solely to roadway factors, 3% to combined roadway, driver, and vehicle factors, 2% solely to vehicle factors, and 1% to combined roadway and vehicle factors ((Harry Lum; Jerry A. Reagan Winter 1995. “Interactive Highway Safety Design Model: Accident Predictive Module”. Public Roads Magazine.)). Some of the most common causes are
If you or a loved one was injured in a car wreck, you need an experienced lawyer. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injury and death in the United States. If you have suffered serious injuries, appropriate compensation for full recovery is necessary. The unfair business practices of many insurance companies make this process difficult and complex. Having a team of experienced attorneys on your side will give you the advantage you need to recover your compensation.
It’s important to know the difference between types and causes and how they can relate to your case. Traffic collisions can be classified by general types. Types of collision include: Head-On, Road Departures, Rear End, Side Collisions, Rollovers

After a motorcycle crash, you may be facing medical bills, lost wages, property losses, pain, and many other problems. A motorcycle accident claim can help you recover for all of your losses.
Motorcycle accidents can lead to serious injuries that require extensive – and expensive – medical care. Surgeries, physical therapy, and long-term rehabilitation can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. The cost of this care can easily drain your accounts and leave you with nothing to get by on day to day. You shouldn’t be left with this burden when someone else caused the crash. A motorcycle accident claim may include the cost of any medical care your injuries needed, and the cost of care your injuries may need in the future.
Another important category of compensation is for the wages and income you’ve lost due to your accident. A motorcycle accident can leave you in recovery for days, weeks, months, or even longer. When this happens, you can’t work, and you can’t bring in the income that you and your family need to get by. A motorcycle accident claim may include the lost wages your injuries have cost you, and the damage your injuries inflict on your future earning potential.
Motorcycle crash victims often face lasting physical and mental pain because of their injuries. Physical pain can disrupt your life and prevent you from engaging in the activities you love. Mental pain can manifest itself in the forms of depression, anxiety, and other lasting problems. Disfigurement is a real risk in motorcycle accidents and can lead to a lifetime of pain that can turn your life upside down. A motorcycle accident claim may include compensation for these serious harms to your life.
Property damage is a category of compensation that frequently comes up in a motorcycle accident claim. After an accident, your motorcycle may be damaged or totaled, and your clothing, safety equipment, and other valuable items you may have had on you at the time of the accident may be damaged or destroyed. A claim may include the cost of repairing or replacing your valuable possessions.
Punitive damages may be available in certain motorcycle accident cases. When the conduct of the responsible party was extraordinarily bad, malicious, or reprehensible, a court may order punitive damages to punish the defendant.
What Damages Can You Recover After an Abilene Truck Crash?
The massive size and bulk of most commercial trucks will protect the driver. However, other motorists involved in truck accidents can end up suffering catastrophic injuries. Multiple fractures, crushing injuries resulting in damage to internal organs, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are all common in tractor-trailer crashes. They can have a devastating effect on every area of your life.
At KRW, we will pursue all compensation that you are entitled to receive such as:
Economic damages – To cover the actual costs you incur in an accident such as medical expenses and lost wages
Non-economic damages – To compensate you for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish you suffer, along with the lost quality of life you and your family must face.
Exemplary damages – To punish the at-fault party in cases that involve exceptional misconduct such as gross negligence.
