Common Personal Injury Accidents We Handle

Common Types of Personal Injuries and How We Can Help

At The Payne Law Group, we regularly handle claims involving all types of injuries, including: 

  • Broken bone
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Whiplash
  • Burn injuries
  • Sprains and strains 
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Even minor symptoms such as headaches can be an indication of more severe issues or can result in such serious pain that expensive procedures for pain block injections, physical therapy, or even surgery may be necessary.

The best way to protect your rights is to seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries, follow all doctors’ orders, and contact our seasoned Bryan personal injury lawyers.

Damages We Will Fight For

As if physical pain isn’t enough, many injured individuals and families also face large debts and financial trouble from mounting medical bills and lost wages. These issues can create a downward spiral of trouble for persons injured by another’s wrongful actions.

Trust us to fight for the most amount of money possible. When filing a personal injury lawsuit, you may be entitled to the following 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 have the skills and experience to help you recover damages such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability/disfigurement
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

Navigating your personal injury case alone can be overwhelming and isolating. With our team by your side, you’ll never feel alone.

What to Do After an Accident

What to do after an accident can be confusing and stressful when you’re injured and in pain. Following certain steps after your accident can help us obtain the best possible result for you.

Seek Medical Treatment

First and foremost, your health is your top priority. Seek immediate medical treatment so a physician can diagnose and treat your injuries.

Take Photos

If possible, take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles, and your injuries, or ask for help. 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.

Collect Information

It is also crucial to gather information such as the other party’s name and contact information, insurance information; car make and model, the police officer’s name and incident number, and the contact information of any witnesses. 

Our office will also assist in collecting this type of evidence and any crash reports. Let us handle the investigation and legal details so you can focus on healing.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
