Personal Injury

If you have been injured as a result of the actions (or lack of action) of a third party, it is possible to claim compensation from the guilty party that will enable you to get back on your feet. No matter what form of injury you have sustained, we can help you file your case with the local court, collect evidence on your behalf and more.

We handle the following types of personal injury cases:

  • Serious Injury and Death
  • Wrongful Death
  • Oil Field Injuries
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Defective Products
  • Dog Bites

We cannot tell you exactly how much you can expect to win from your case. A lot depends on the nature of your injuries, how the injuries affect your ability to hold down a job, whether or not you were partly at fault for the injuries and whether or not the third party has been held responsible for causing injury. However, upon looking over your case we can give you a ballpark estimate of how much we have won in other, similar cases.

Personal injury cases are unique in that lawyers who handle such cases do not charge a single penny in legal fees unless the client either wins the case or obtains a favorable settlement. That means that you do not have to pay us for our work unless you get the compensation you need. What is more, you can get a free consultation from us to determine if your case is worth bringing to the court and who should be held accountable for the injury.

An unexpected injury has the potential to wreak havoc on an individual and his or her entire family. It is natural for a person who has been hurt to focus on recovery; however, it is also important to get legal help in a timely manner to ensure that the person or company that caused your injuries is not allowed off the hook. Carvajal Smithwick Garcia, LLP not only has a winning track record in this field but offers personalized, friendly legal advice that will put you at ease. As you focus on getting better, we will focus on ensuring that your insurance company provides due compensation and that those who are at fault for your injuries are held accountable.
