Bryan Personal Injury Lawyers
Championing Personal Injury Claims in Bryan & College Station Since 1949
For more than 70 years, The Payne Law Group has built a reputation among our peers and communities in Texas for being willing to fight hard to obtain the best recovery possible for clients injured in accidents.
We fight for our clients whether they are injured:
- In a car wreck
- In the oilfield
- By an 18-wheeler
- By a drunk driver
- On someone’s property
- In any other situation
As a law firm dedicated to helping those in need, we have helped countless Brazos Valley individuals and families heal from their injuries and secure the compensation they need to pay for outstanding medical bills and other damages.
We work hard to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions, and we pursue justice for our clients through comprehensive investigations, analysis, and collection of relevant evidence.
Our lawyers prepare all cases as if they are going to trial. Many attorneys only work half-heartedly to obtain a quick settlement, and at your expense — they settle for much less than your case is actually worth, so they don’t have to work hard.
We’re here for YOU, and unlike many of the “quick settlement” lawyers out there, we’re committed to securing the most money for you because you deserve it.
Contact us online or by phone at (979) 300-7406 for a free consultation regarding your personal injury case. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can begin investigating your accident. We proudly serve both Bryan and College Station!
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Texas is two years. In other words, you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file, or you risk losing your right altogether.
It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this filing period, so it’s crucial you speak to an experienced Bryon personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible.
Some examples of these exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident
- If the alleged negligent party leaves the state before a claim can be filed
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s crucial you speak to an experienced attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. The Payne Law Group offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!

What to Do After an Accident
What to do after an accident can be confusing and stressful, especially when you’re injured and in pain through no fault of your own. To help us obtain the best possible result for you, it’s important to follow certain steps following your accident.
Seek Medical Treatment
First and foremost, your health is your top priority. Seek immediate medical treatment so your injuries can be diagnosed and treated by a physician.
If possible, take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles, and your injuries at the time of the event or as soon as possible. Pictures of the scene and vehicles, along with a doctor’s report and photos of your injuries, can be used as evidence to prove how serious the accident was and the injuries it caused.
It is also crucial that you collect evidence from the scene of the accident, such as:
- The other party’s name and phone number
- Insurance company
- Car make and model
- Photos of damage and of the scene
- The police officer’s name and incident number
- The name and number of any witnesses to the incident
Our office will also assist in collecting this type of evidence and any crash reports.
Let us worry about investigating your accident and the extent of your injuries, so YOU can focus on healing and getting better.
Common Types of Injuries & How We Can Help
- Bruises and abrasions
- Sprains and fractures
- Broken bones
- Head and brain trauma
- Spinal cord and neck injuries
Even minor symptoms such as headaches can be an indication of more serious issues or can result in such serious pain that expensive procedures for pain block injections, physical therapy, or even surgery may be necessary.
You must strive to take immediate action to get treated for your injuries and follow all doctors’ orders.
What Are the Three Types of Damages You Can Recover Compensation For?
As if physical pain isn’t enough, many injured individuals and families also face large debts and financial trouble as medical bills begin piling up and you have to miss work to heal, resulting in lost wages.
These issues can create a downward spiral of trouble for persons injured by another’s wrongful actions, and you need us to help YOU fight for the most amount of money possible.
When filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can fight to obtain compensation for any of three different types of damages:
- Economic damages (out-of-pocket expenses)
- Noneconomic damages (pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc.)
- Punitive damages (usually in cases involving a criminal violation)
Our Bryan personal injury attorneys can help you seek money for damages such as:
- Property damage, including car repairs and replacements
- Loss of future earnings due to the inability to work in the future
- Lost wages
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Disfigurement, such as scarring
- Physical impairment
- Loss of consortium
- Medical bills, including ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, prescription medications, and physical therapy
- Loss of services
