Stay In The Know

  • What if I can’t come to your office?

    That’s not a problem. We understand that an accident may have left you injured and that traveling may be difficult or impossible. We care about your well-being and comfort. So if you can’t come to our office, we will come to you. One of our lawyers can meet you at your home, in your hospital room or anywhere else that is convenient.

    We’ll review the details of your case and ask you some questions. Then we can review your legal options and give you an idea about what to expect. We can also answer any questions that you have about your case.

  • How long will it take to resolve my case?

    It depends on many factors, such as the complexity of your case and how much money is at stake. In general, a case may take anywhere between a few months to a year. If your case goes to trial, it can take even longer.

    Insurance companies try to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible. They don’t want to pay you the compensation you deserve. They are hoping that the longer they delay your case, the more likely it will be that you will give up or accept a lower settlement offer. We will guide you through the process every step of the way.

  • Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?

    Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company. They are offering you a settlement! It may not be for as much as you were hoping, but they are promising quick payment. This offer will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. The insurance company just wants to save money.

    You should never agree to any settlement unless you have first discussed the offer with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer. You can get a much better settlement when an insurance company knows you have a personal injury attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf.

Neck Injuries, Including Whiplash

Neck injuries – including whiplash – are especially common and can be extremely painful, and may include:

  • Neck sprains
  • Soft tissue damage in neck
  • Vocal cord damage
  • Fractured neck vertebrae

Depending on the severity of your neck injury, you might require surgery or extensive physical therapy. That’s why it’s critical that you consult with a doctor as soon as possible after your car accident. Then, talk to us. We can explain all the legal options available to you based on the specific circumstances surrounding your car crash.

Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries

Injuries to the head sustained in a car accident can often be very serious. These injuries include concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Other times, you may be dealing with a skull fracture or internal bleeding in the brain (often known as a hemorrhagic stroke). If not treated immediately, many head injuries can be life-threatening. Worst of all, your head injury might not even seem that serious at first. That’s why it’s important to seek immediate medical care. Otherwise, your life could be at risk.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Injuries to the back and spine sustained in car accidents can cover a wide range, including:

  • Sprained back muscles
  • Herniated discs
  • Severed spinal cord

Depending on where your back or spinal cord injury occurred, you may not be able to walk or move certain parts of your body. Sometimes, these injuries are temporary. Other times, some spinal cord injuries are permanent and can result in partial or total paralysis. Whatever type of back or spine injury you’re dealing with, we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Broken Bones

Serious car accidents often result in broken bones. These breaks can occur in any part of the body, but often happen in the arms, legs, hands, feet or ribs. Depending on how many bones you broke and whether you sustained a complete or partial break, you may require surgery and several weeks to rest and fully recover. That’s why we want to meet with you and help you get the resources you need to get better. Your best interests come first at Karam Law Firm.
