What Plaintiffs Stand to Gain with an Injury Claim
People who have been in an accident are often in the worst circumstances of their lives. They’ve been severely injured, their hospitalization costs are climbing, they’re unable to work, and everything they’ve worked to build is in danger of collapsing. In the hands of the right lawyer, an injury claim can take care of all of that. By holding the at-fault parties accountable in court, our firm has been able to help our clients replace and recover everything they’ve lost.
Injury claims can recover or replace:
- All hospitalization and treatment costs
- Lost wages due to injury
- Lost earning capacity for lifelong injuries
- Future medical care necessitated by the injury
- Cost of mental and emotional anguish
- Cost of physical pain and suffering
- Funeral costs for fatal injuries
- Medical costs for the deceased prior to death
Anyone who has ever been in a serious accident is entitled to everything listed above. Unfortunately, the companies who harm or kill people never offer to help the injured recover what they need. Instead, accident victims are forced to hire attorneys to force those companies to do what’s right. People call our Austin injury lawyers because we’re extremely effective at forcing companies to pay what our clients are owed.
Austin Crane Collision Hospitalizes 16 Construction Workers
In September 2020, one of the worst crane accidents in the nation’s history occurred at a construction site in East Austin. Late in the morning of September 16, two cranes became entangled and led to an immediate evacuation of the area. Nearly two dozen workers were injured while trying to escape, and 16 required hospitalization.

Personal Injury FAQ
How Much Will It Cost Me to Hire a Lawyer?
For personal injury cases, the answer is “nothing.” Arnold & Itkin take cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we cover the cost of investigation, preparation, and litigation upfront. In return, we ask for a percentage of whatever award or settlement we win on your behalf. If we don’t win your case, you owe us nothing—so you only ‘pay’ if you win! Using this arrangement, justice is accessible to quite literally anyone, no matter their financial situation.
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
For accidents in Austin, you have two years from the date of injury to file a claim against whoever was responsible. This is true of any accident that occurs in Texas. Your time window is set by the state’s statute of limitations, which essentially gives you a strict time limit on pursuing damages in certain cases.
Two years is not a lot of time when it comes to the law. To ensure your case has all the preparation and investigation time it requires, you’ll want to call an attorney as soon as possible after your injury to get started. If you’re coming up on your filing deadline, speak with our attorneys to figure out your options.
Why Hire a Lawyer Who Tries Cases?
According to the latest figures, 95% of cases end in out-of-court settlements. As a result, the vast, vast majority of lawyers never see the inside of a courtroom. So, why does it matter that Arnold & Itkin is a trial law firm?
Because a trial record, a history of jury verdicts, is what insurers and companies use to determine how much they’re willing to settle for. When your lawyer doesn’t have trial experience, your opponent knows they don’t have to settle for much; after all, they have nothing to fear. With our case history in your corner, they’ll know you mean business.
Here are a few more reasons to hire a trial lawyer for your case:
- It gives you more options
- It gives you better leverage during negotiations
- Your attorney will be better prepared
- Trials can offer some measure of closure
