If you've been in an accident, it's important to realize that not every case will be accepted for a Texas personal injury claim. Meet with an attorney from an Austin personal injury firm to evaluate your case and see what your best course of action is.

Types of Cases Not Accepted for a Texas Personal Injury Claim

An Austin Personal Injury Firm uses specific criteria when selecting Texas personal injury claims to consult. If your case falls under one of the following it'll most likely not be accepted: 
  • There's no visible evidence of an injury -- only pain and nothing that can be supported by hard evidence;
  • Minor impact cases -- where a car looks undamaged but the victim sustained significant physical injury;
  • You had preexisting injury in the same area of the body prior to the accident;
  • Your case has less than $10,000 of "hard damages" (medical bills, property damage, lost wages);
  • You've delayed contacting the legal firm and are nearing the deadline under Texas law;
  • You've been charged with fault by the police or are even partially at fault;
  • You've been in multiple accidents in the past;
  • Your only medical treatment is with a chiropractor;
  • You've already been represented by another attorney; or
  • A lawsuit has already been filed. 
Due to the number of factors that impact your case, meeting with an attorney from an Austin personal injury firm for a consultation is your best course of action. He or she can look over all of the facts and discuss whether or not your case is right for an injury claim.
