Our San Antonio personal injury lawyers understand the ins and outs of personal injury cases. However, it is common for individuals to not understand personal injury cases until they are in one themselves. There are also many misconceptions that surround personal injury cases. Our team at the Law Office of Jesse Hernandez can help answer your questions and clear up confusion about personal injury cases.
What Happens After an Accident?
If you find yourself in a personal injury accident, it is important that you take photos of your injuries and any other significant aspects of the accident. You should also visit a doctor if need be. Write down a narrative of what happened while it is still fresh in your head and make a list of witnesses with their contact information. Our San Antonio personal injury lawyer can ensure you have all of the necessary documents before filing.
What If I’m Partially at Fault?
It can be intimidating to file a personal injury claim if you were partially at fault. The jury will help decide how fault is split amongst people in the case. As long as you are not responsible for majority of the blame, you may still be entitled to compensation.
How Long do Cases Take?
The answer to this question is dependent on the specifics of your case. Some cases may take as little as a few weeks while other cases may take over a year. If your case is more complicated, it may take more time to settle.
