How much will it cost me to hire your firm?

Seeking legal representation after being seriously injured or losing a loved in an accident is affordable when you choose to work with an Austin personal injury attorney from The Daspit Law Firm. We work on a contingency-fee basis, which means that we won't ask for any up-front fees or legal expenses. Instead, we will work diligently on your case until a favorable resolution has been reached on your behalf. If, for some reason, we are unable to secure a successful outcome for your case, then you will owe our firm nothing for the legal fees that we advanced at the beginning of your case.

I waited to file my claim. Is it too late to take legal action?

The state of Texas enforces a "statute of limitations" on personal injury cases, which limits the amount of time in which a personal injury victim can file a claim. By law, injury and / or property damage claims must be filed within two years of the incident, after which time legal action can no longer be taken. If it has not yet been two years since your injury or property damage, then you still have time to file. We urge you not to delay the process any longer — contact The Daspit Law Firm today to begin your case as soon as possible.

Will I have to go to court, or can my case be handled outside of the courtroom?

At The Daspit Law Firm, it is our goal to help you obtain a timely settlement. Accordingly, we are prepared to do what it takes to provide you with the maximum compensation you deserve in as little time as possible. If this can be accomplished during out-of-court mediation sessions, then we will certainly do so. If we have reason to believe that you could receive a larger settlement if your case is taken to court, however, then we are prepared to bring it before a judge and jury. After meeting with you in person to discuss the details of your case, we can give you a more concrete answer to this question.

How much compensation will I recover from my case?

The amount that any given personal injury victim will receive in his or her settlement will depend on a number of factors, including the extent of the injury that was suffered, the degree of negligence that was involved in the accident, and much more. Countless factors are involved in ultimately determining how much an injury victim will be paid through settlement, which make it difficult to estimate an amount offhand. What we can tell you is that if your claim is successful, you should be compensated for your lost wages, recovery time, and medical expenses.

If I'm partially to blame for the accident, can I still seek compensation through a legal claim?

Texas is a comparative-fault state, which means that anyone who is found to be 51% or more responsible for his or her own injury will not be permitted to take legal action for the recovery of compensation. Individuals who are found to be partially at fault for an accident to a degree less than 51% can still seek compensation; however, the amount of compensation that they will be eligible to receive will be reduced proportionate to their own degree of fault for the accident.
