- Car Repairs or Other Property Damage

- Missed Work / Lost Wages
- Physical Pain
- Emotional Trauma
- Mounting Bills
You don’t have to face that all alone.
A personal injury lawyer can often help solve a lot of problems for you:
An Austin Personal Injury Attorney Explains Your Rights Under the Law
Many people who are involved in an accident do not know all of their rights and responsibilities. But not knowing your rights can hurt you.
Under Texas statutes of limitation, waiting too long to file a claim or lawsuit might mean you lose the opportunity to receive compensation for your injuries. Different rules apply, depending on who injured you, and how or where you were injured.
At Justinian & Associates, our attorneys are experienced with the Federal and Texas state laws of personal injury. We have negotiated thousands of settlements, and logged hundreds of hours in court. We understand how the system works. We understand how to fight for your rights.
Free Consultation with an Austin Personal Attorney – No Obligation
We offer a free consultation with a seasoned attorney (not a “screener”). If you are in the hospital or at home, we will visit you if that’s easier.
Our attorney will sit with you and hear your story. We will explain your options under Texas law. No obligation. And if you do hire us, unless we get you money for your injuries, you won’t owe anything.
We don’t pretend you have a better case than you do. We don’t push you to make a quick settlement. We tell you the truth about your case, so you can make an informed choice.
An Austin Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You Make Clear Decisions
Many accident victims are coping with hospitalization or physical and emotional pain after the accident. They and their loved ones may be too busy or injured to think about how you will pay all the bills.
In the case of a grievous bodily harm or wrongful death of a loved one, people often feel overwhelmed, facing an uncertain future. They may not be in a position, emotionally or mentally, to make complex financial or other serious decisions without advice.
Your attorney is on your side, both as an advocate and advisor.
At Justinian & Associates, each of our lawyers is driven by fairness. We battle bullies and fight for victims every day. And our only goal is justice for our clients, whatever that means for them. We are warriors for the injured.
An Attorney Can Help Make Sure That Your Damages Get Compensated
Medical Bills and Healthcare Costs
After a car accident, it is very important that you get trained medical professionals to examine your injuries. You may be more injured than you think. And untreated injuries often just get worse.
Even if you receive a settlement offer from the person or company that injured you, it may cover your medical bills and repair costs. Your injuries may require ongoing therapy. Healthcare costs have skyrocketed, and these bills may quickly add up. An Austin personal injury lawyer from Justinian & Associates can build a case that lays out all of your costs and damages, and explains why the other side must pay for them. We have decades of combined experience, and are skilled at getting our clients’ bills paid after an accident.
An Austin Personal Injury Attorney’s Letter of Protection Can Get You Medical Care Without Paying Up-Front
If you do not have enough money to pay for your medical care costs up front, we can write a Letter of Protection. A Letter of Protection guarantees if we get a settlement in your personal injury case, we will repay the medical provider out of that settlement.
We work every day with qualified medical professionals who treat accident victims.
Many of these professionals will treat you at no up-front cost to you. They do not get paid, unless we get you a money settlement. They trust our legal abilities and judgment, and are comfortable taking the risk, because of our excellent record of results.
Property Damage, Including Compensation For Its Diminished Value
At Justinian & Associates, our attorneys work to ensure that the insurance company pays a fair amount to repair or replace your vehicle or other property.
But many people believe that a car is “never the same” after an accident. True or not, your property may be worth less after it is repaired. This is why we often recover “diminished value” settlements. These compensate our clients for the loss of value of their property.
Pain and Suffering
Accidents and injuries can expose a victim to mental trauma and bodily pain. In addition to auto collisions, defective products defects and harmful pharmaceuticals can leave someone with life-long injuries. Even minor accidents can cause significant aches and suffering.
Ongoing pain can interfere with your activities of everyday life, like walking, shopping, holding your child or pet, and performing your job at your best ability.
At Justinian & Associates, we don’t guess if a settlement offer is fair. We maintain an extensive library of settlements from around the country. We make sure that the insurance company isn’t trying to settle your claim for less than it is worth.
There’s no reason you should not receive all the compensation that a company should pay in your case.
Not only is missing time off of work because of a car accident annoying, it often costs money because many employers won’t pay workers for time spent at the doctor’s office.
Thankfully, the law usually requires that a person or company who injures another must also compensate the injured victim for lost wages. We will work to make sure that you’re properly compensated for all of the time you have to miss from work while healing and dealing with your accident.
Contact us now if you’ve missed work because of a car accident and need help getting paid for the hours or days that you missed.
Auto Accident Victims With Personal Injury Attorneys Receive Much Higher Settlements
A widely-cited study by the Insurance Research Council demonstrated that:
- Auto accident victims represented by an attorney are generally compensated about three times higher than those without one.
- Eighty-five percent of auto insurance company payments for bodily injury are made to victims represented by a lawyer as opposed to people who represent themselves.
But the most basic reason to get a lawyer if you have been in a car accident is that the odds are stacked against you without one.
An Austin Personal Injury Attorney Deals With the Insurance Company For You
Dealing with an insurance company can be exhausting. They can be difficult to reach. Insurance company employees are sometimes hostile or aloof. Even when an insurance adjuster is friendly, you must be cautious.
That’s because insurance company employees use any statements you make, or legal theories they can construct, to deny or reduce compensation.
They may have compassion for your pain and suffering. But it’s their job. Insurance companies are businesses. By law, they are driven by profit.
But you don’t have to face stressful phone calls and negotiations on your own.
The Austin personal injury attorneys at Justinian & Associates are experienced in dealing with insurance companies. We know their tactics. We understand the law and how the court system works, and we never retreat from fighting for your rights.
Even if the other side was clearly at fault, we can make sure the insurance company pays to repair your car and provide a rental car if needed. If your car is totaled, we can negotiate a fair settlement.
One thing is for certain: when you speak to the insurance company, they will consult a lawyer. In fact, probably an entire department full of lawyers, all of whom understand that victory lies in achieving the very lowest possible settlement you can be convinced to accept. Before speaking to any insurance company employee, you want to know your rights.
