Why should I hire a personal injury lawyer in Fort Worth?

You need to level the playing field

Insurance Companies Have Experts

At-Fault Parties Might Point Fingers

You Need Time To Rest

When you get into an accident, you’ll probably have to deal with an insurance company or two. Despite what their advertisements might says, insurers aren’t on your side. They’re in the business of making money – and that’s hard to do if they pay out on every claim that comes through the door. So, they’ll fight you and do whatever they can to stand between you and the money you deserve.

They might offer a lowball settlement with a short clock, hoping to scare you into accepting less than your case is worth. They’ll try to take advantage of the fact that they have a lot of experience handling these claims – and you likely don’t. Hiring an attorney can help to stop these tactics from working.

Stephens Law Firm, PLLC founder Jason Stephens has more than two decades of experience dealing with manipulative insurance companies. He knows what steps have to be taken to leverage a meaningful settlement on your behalf. 

Insurance companies have a lot of resources. They have access to experts and a team of attorneys working on their behalf. That can put you at a disadvantage right from the start. Fortunately, you can get experts on your side, too. When you hire a personal injury lawyer, you can benefit from the firm’s resources and connections.

At Stephens Law Firm, PLLC, founder Jason Stephens has worked hard to forge relationships with leading accident and injury experts in Texas. These experts can help Jason understand the complexities of your case and appreciate the extent of your injuries. When Jason Stephens sits down to negotiate your case, he can rely on expert testimony and support, which can be essential in securing substantial compensation for you.

No one will want to accept responsibility for your accident. So, they’ll point fingers. Some might even try to say that you’re to blame for your injuries. Under Texas state law, this could hurt your ability to recover compensation, or even bar you from getting money, at all. 

A Fort Worth personal injury attorney can stand up and protect you from these allegations. Attorney Jason Stephens can gather evidence to shift blame to others and minimize your contributions. The less fault allocated to you, the better off you’ll be.

Accidents can take a lot out of you. To get better, you’ll need time to focus on yourself. That’s hard to do if you’re also trying to navigate the ins-and-outs of a complicated legal case. Fortunately, you don’t have to do it by yourself.

When you hire a personal injury attorney, you can direct your time and attention to your recovery. Attorney Jason Stephens will stand by your side from start to finish and handle every aspect of your case. You can rest assured that your case is in good hands while you focus on getting better.

What Compensation Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?

Stephens Law Offers A Free Consultation. No Risk, No Fees, No Commitment.

It’s easy to get stressed out over the financial costs of an accident in Fort Worth. If someone else caused you to get hurt, Texas personal injury lawyer Jason Stephens will work tirelessly to hold them financially accountable. He’ll aggressively seek damages to compensate for things like:

  • Present and future medical expenses,
  • The cost of replacing or repairing damaged property,
  • Lost income and wages,
  • Temporary and/or permanent disability,
  • Emotional distress and trauma,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Disfigurement and scarring,
  • Loss of enjoyment of life,
  • Loss of consortium, and more.

As he builds your personal injury claim, Stephens Law can turn to experts for a little bit of help. That’s because Jason Stephens appreciates that damages can – and will – be contested by an insurance company. Experts – including accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, and vocational authorities – can help him determine the present and future costs of your injuries. When his demands are backed by expert witnesses, he’ll be in a better position to secure substantial compensation on your behalf.

Client Reviews

I met Jason and Tracy while looking for Legal Representation. If it wasn’t for the excellent attention to detail provided by Tracy and Jason, the outcome would not have been as great as it was. This Firm also provided the empathy and understanding I needed while recovering by checking in on me as “Part of the Family”, not just as my Attorney.

Dave Powell

I am extremely pleased with Mr. Jason Stephens legal representation. Both Jason and Tracy are compassionate and patient in walking you through the entire process. Although my case was difficult, Mr. Stephens and his staff worked above and beyond to settle my case and compensate me for my auto accident injuries. Thank you all for time and effort.

Marisela Perez

This law firm exceeded my expectations in a number of ways. Not only did they make you feel at home, but the professionalism was stellar. They followed up with the smallest of details, and took every avenue possible for a positive outcome of my case. I would recommend this law firm to anyone seeking council with excellent communication and followup.

Jim Cummings

My daughter was involved in an accident and Jason Stephens represented her. We couldn’t have been in better hands. They were very professional and handled everything. I would highly recommend.

Kristie Smith

I had a very good experience with Jason Stephens and Tracy Heffner. Hope I don’t need a lawyer again, but if I did I go back to them.

DETERMINING NEGLIGENCE IN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE

Negligence means that someone has failed to use the level of care that’s required under the circumstances and, as a result, someone else has suffered an injury. In order to establish negligence, the plaintiff has to prove four things:

  • The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care
  • That duty was breached in some way
  • The defendant’s conduct has harmed the plaintiff, and
  • The plaintiff has sustained some type of injury (e.g., physical, emotional, financial).

When a plaintiff can prove each of these things (or the elements of another tort), the defendant can be ordered to pay compensation for the harm they’ve caused.

HOW MUCH DOES A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN FORT WORTH COST?

Getting into an unexpected accident in Fort Worth can be really overwhelming. Between medical expenses, lost income, and disability, it can

also be quite costly. You might worry that you can’t afford to hire an attorney to help you pursue compensation. However, that’s not the case at Stephens Law Firm, PLLC. Jason Stephens, like most other personal injury attorneys in Fort Worth, works on contingency.

Contingency means that Jason’s fee is dependent on the outcome of your case. Stephens Law Firm, PLLC only gets paid if you receive financial compensation through a settlement or verdict. When Jason wins, Stephens Law is awarded a pre-agreed upon percentage of your financial recovery. That percentage can vary, depending on the specific circumstances of your case. However, it typically ranges between 30 and 40 percent of your net award.

TEXAS PERSONAL INJURY LAWS

There are times when more than one person will contribute to an accident. In some cases, victims are partly responsible for their own injuries. Different states handle this in different ways. Some prevent victims from recovering any compensation, at all. These are states with pure contributory fault rules. Many allow victims to recover compensation but limit how much money can be awarded, based on how much fault the victim shares. These are comparative negligence states. Texas has rules that are somewhere in the middle.

Texas is a modified comparative fault state. This means that damages are only prohibited if you share more than 50 percent of the blame for an accident. If you’re not primarily responsible, reduced damages are available. The less fault that’s assigned to you, the more money you can potentially recover.
