Waco, TX Personal Injury FAQ
When Should I Involve an Attorney?
If you've been injured in any type of accident, we recommend contacting an attorney as soon as possible. Even in the early stages of a case, an attorney can step in and start protecting your interests. This may include handling communication with the insurance company, gathering evidence to support your case, and offering guidance related to any of a number of things, from whether to sign a statement to what not to post on social media. Through every step of your case, a competent Waco injury lawyer can fight for your rights.
What's the Cost of a Waco Personal Injury Lawyer at Arnold & Itkin?
At Arnold & Itkin, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means that we only get paid if our clients do. We also do not charge upfront costs related to investigating our clients' cases and other steps involved in the negotiation and litigation process. You do not have to worry about paying anything in advance, and if we take on your case, we'll only collect our fees if we negotiate a settlement or win an award on your behalf.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In Texas, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits. This means you have two years from the date of the accident to file a case. If a minor was injured, however, the statute of limitations does not begin until their 18th birthday. For more information and other exceptions, we recommend that you talk to an attorney about your unique situation, needs, and concerns.
