Suing For a Serious Injury Caused by an Accident

The process of suing for a serious injury.

McKinney Vos is a personal injury law firm serving Austin, Texas. We represent people whose lives have been changed because of serious injuries suffered in car accidents, commercial truck crashes, bicycle and pedestrian crashes, motorcycle collisions, and slip-and-fall accidents.

Insurance Companies Maximize Profits by Refusing to Pay on Injury Claims

After an accident causes serious injuries, many people are shocked at the lengths to which insurance companies will go to minimize what they have to pay.

Decades ago, insurance adjusters worked cooperatively with personal injury lawyers to resolve personal injury claims. Those times are long gone.

Today, insurance companies have made a business decision to maximize profits by reducing the amount of money they pay to compensate people who suffered serious injuries.

After an accident, let us deal with the insurance companies so you can focus on healing and putting your life back together.

McKinney Vos Fights for the Compensation You Deserve

When an accident causes serious injuries, you and your family have important legal rights and are entitled to compensation.

Unfortunately, the insurance companies don’t always see it that way. That’s why you need our serious injury lawyers on your side. We will explain your options, protect your rights, and fight for the compensation you deserve.

The days and weeks after an injury are stressful. We are here to ease your burden.

During your initial consultation, we will ask questions to learn more about your situation. We will gather evidence to support your claim for compensation, including your medical records and bills, documentation to support your claim for lost wages, and more. We may also engage the services of various experts to explain how and why the other party was at fault or to establish the anticipated cost of future medical care and expected lost wages over your lifetime. Then we will submit our demand for compensation to the insurance companies and begin settlement negotiations.

In many cases, the insurance company will make a low-ball offer, hoping you will accept it so they can maximize their profits. Insurance adjusters make a settlement offer based on what they think a jury would do with your claim. However, very few insurance adjusters have ever tried a personal injury case, and they rarely account for your unique circumstances and how the accident changed your life.

When you work with McKinney Vos, you project the threat of trial and the likelihood that a jury will return a verdict that is substantially more than their offer.

During settlement negotiations, we will present your injury claim in a way that highlights the effects of the accident. We will draw on our years of experience handling serious injury cases and negotiating settlements. In many cases, we can negotiate a favorable resolution to your claim. But when the insurance company refuses to make a fair offer, we will file a lawsuit, take your case to court, and, when necessary, present your case to a jury.
